Nutshell: I shouldn’t watch the end credits of a Hart & Haddish comedy trying to figure out why I’m unimpressed with what I just saw. But I was. Give these two better folks behind the camera. Grade: D+ “That’s what’s … Continue reading
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
“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

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
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
