Lackluster “Life of the Party”
Nutshell: SIGH. I really wanted to love this movie. Yet I just can’t. Jokes that fall flat and/or are drawn out for way too long. A story that doesn’t really seem to know where it’s going or what it’s trying … Continue reading
TrailerWatch: #GirlsTrip gets up to some #NSFW mischief!
“I need you to use your lady mouth.” Just the idea of a Queen Latifah/Jada Pinkett Smith/Regina Hall/Tiffany Haddish (OMG do yourself a favor and check out Haddish whenever she’s on @midnight) buddy comedy has me ready to line up … Continue reading

“Central Intelligence” – fun, embarrassing and goofy. Just like high school.
Nutshell: Hart and Johnson make a great team in Central Intelligence, a film that focuses on the funny and puts the serious business of espionage on the back burner. That’s a good thing; here, it’s the connection (real or perceived) … Continue reading

New images from “Bad Moms”: looking pretty good
Bad Moms sounds like a dudebro buddy film, but with da laydeez. But the cast – which includes Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kristen Bell – sounds like a great ensemble. So I read the synopsis, and I … Continue reading

Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza: How To Be Single!
Ready for Valentine’s Day? Or maybe “Single Awareness Day”? I’ve always kinda hated that second one, as if when you’re single you can’t like hearts and flowers and stuff. I always like that stuff, single or not. Though to be … Continue reading

Elsewhere Review: Sisters – a glory-days good time
As always, clicky for the original piece! Nutshell: Sisters takes the well-worn frat/house party story and winds it up by plopping a bunch of 40-somethings into the booze and drug filled mix. Sounds like a crash-and-burn, but if you’re not … Continue reading
