World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
Kevin A. Ranson
| Original Score: 4/5
...a low-key comedy perfectly tuned for our times.
Short on substance, despite a watchable supporting cast and an amiable overall tenor.
While it borrows from obvious sources, Kabluey eventually comes into its own as a wacky commentary on the state of America in the fifth year of the Iraq war.
| Original Score: 3/4
A dark piece of whimsy that enchants and befuddles in equal measure.
| Original Score: 3/5
Kabluey, which has no discernible political agenda, is wildly uneven and often seems like a short stretched to feature length. But it's also kind of oddly endearing.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The funniest movie I've seen this year.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The Austin-shot movie catches the nation's mood of economic anxiety and workplace exploitation more pungently than anything else in theaters.
In the recent epidemic of comedies about 30-something men in the throes of severe arrested development, he is one of the most pitifully incompetent losers.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Prendergast seems clueless that an excess of pure weirdness won't lead to an excess of laughs. It won't.
| Original Score: 2/4
Pulls off what may be the best evocation of contemporary alienation in a movie so far this year.
| Original Score: 4/6
This charming, pointed comedy is a genuine discovery.
It's a sweet, ingenious, twisted and surreal comedy, kind of Samuel Beckett by way of Adam Sandler.
| Original Score: 5/5
