Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
This is another one of those poorly-acted, TV sitcoms that only gets into film fests because it has two guys kissing. That Tori Spelling stars is enough of a review by itself.
The premise is stomach-turning cutesy as well as maudlin, the characters are cartoons, and the climax is unbelievable and strained to a fare-thee-well.
A light, formulaic romantic comedy that plays with genre conventions just enough to make its cotton-candy charms feel almost fresh.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
At first, the supremely silly vibe offers a fair amount of fun. But then Cox switches gears and gets serious, which is a huge mistake.
| Original Score: 2/5
Fans of the genre, Ms. Spelling (who are likely the same people) and perhaps TV's Will & Grace (who are likely the same people) will be inclined to walk this bride down the aisle.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Plot contrivances and erratic character choices reduce would could have been a frothy comedy into a confused, unsatisfying jumble that no amount of beefcake can rescue.
| Original Score: 5/10
A breakout movie could be made from Lieberman's premise, but Cox and his TV-caliber cast simply aren't cut out for the challenge.
