30 Nights of Sex to Save Your Marriage (2019) – Movie Review

As we grow older, we find more and more that consumer products – especially music and film – aren’t marketed or made for us. Your chances of finding youth-oriented comedies in theaters are much greater than finding something made for those of us who’ve already been through the awkward transition between the teenage years and […]

What Men Want (2019) – Movie Review

I’m gonna be straight up here: I like watching Nancy Meyers’ What Women Want from time to time. A pre-meltdown Mel Gibson and an absolutely delightful Helen Hunt aided and abetted by a supporting cast which includes the likes of Ashley Johnson, Alan Alda, Judy Greer, and Bette Midler? What couldn’t you like about it? […]

Sporting a misspelled “DANGERUS” tattoo and a […]

Ripped

When it comes to films like Ripped, I get a little conflicted, as I recognize the efforts and good intentions of the filmmakers. However, if the film fails to convey either its drama or humor due to clichéd writing and overly lackadaisical performances, it’s hard to find a way to recommend such a movie. On […]

Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?…

The new comedy Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?… doesn’t present anything new. Whether you’re a gun rights advocate or a gun control advocate, there’s plenty in this politically-even-handed film that will, by turns, either make you laugh or enrage you. Not even its story is new – it’s based on Lysistrata, a comedy […]
