    “The best product always wins,” declares Lauren (Reese Witherspoon) early on in McG’s "This Means War," brusquely establishing her approach to professional conduct – she’s a product tester in some candy-colored SoCal workplace – and romantic relationship...

    'The Vow' was inspired by a news item that one of the producers read twelve years ago about a woman who, after an accident, had no memory of her husband. What a shame that the finished product—which comes after numerous attempts to create an effective screenplay over the past decade—is so lackluster...

    Journey 2: The Mysterious Island plus Daffy's Rhapsody

    Four years after a family-friendly 3-D version of Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, the same studio (but different filmmakers—and an entirely different cast, except for Josh Hutcherson) have come up with another PG-rated adventure yarn aimed at the same demographic. The g...

    Review: Woody Harrelson Stands Tall Amidst Crumbling LAPD In Riveting 'Rampart'

    "Everything you learned at the Academy is bullshit." That's the sage bit of wisdom Date Rape Dave (Woody Harrelson, and we'll get to his cop moniker in a moment) gives a new trainee in the opening frames of Oren Moverman's "Rampart," a searing and riveting look at a crooked cop's decay amidst the cr...

    Review: Greta Gerwig Is Unleashed, For Better And Worse, In 'The Dish & The Spoon'

    Whether you like it or not, we're going for a ride with Greta Gerwig. Opening with a perspective from the backseat, we see mostly the road ahead through the windshield, an endless dark tunnel with minimal traffic. A cellphone yelps for the driver's attention, to which the actress responds by...
