Critic Review - Birmingham Mail

New Year's Eve is like Woody Allen lite for the masses ( ... ) by never threatening to copy the smut of 50/50 or Bridesmaids, it's a memory-stirring, warm-hearted breath of fresh air. Even at 117 minutes.

To compare this crap to a Woody Allen film should be reason enough to be dropped by RT as a critic. A 4 out of 5 for this , (and ripping one of the best comedies of the year in Bridesmaids, which was just listed by AFI as one of the top 10 films of the year) is a joke.

Just because 50/50 had some vulgar humor in it does not mean it was "smut". It sounds like your personal convictions are in the way of you making an objective review. As a critic you should be focusing on the overall value of the film and how it was made...not how wholesome it was/wasn't.

Even if 50/50 and Bridesmaids were smut (they're not) at least they're not shit (which this is).

I think there should be an age limit for these "critics". Sometimes you just get to a point where you're way out of touch.

This guy (and I use the term loosely) and Jackie K. Cooper need to be expunged from the list of reviewers Rotten Tomatoes uses. I know there's such a thing as diversity but when reviewers repeatedly and willfully exhibit such an outrageous disconnect from reality they have to be recognized as trolls and eighty-sixed. Armond White anyone?
