The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
As I Lay Dying
Admittedly junky but wickedly watchable revenge fantasy.
| Original Score: 3/4
Teaching Mrs. Tingle is funny, smart and full of unpredictable twists and turns.
Teaching Mrs. Tingle reveals Williamson not only to be as accomplished a director as he is a writer but also his willingness to move beyond horror to psychological suspense.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Kevin Williamson's revenge fantasy rests upon the reasonable assumption that everyone has entertained homicidal fantasies about some especially obnoxious teacher.
A dazzling appearance by Ms. Mirren!
| Original Score: 8/10
Not surprisingly, the best thing on the screen is Mirren.
| Original Score: B-
Helen Mirren makes a magnificent villain!
It's Kevin's chance to exercise his Hitchcock muscles and advance from the irony-laced fright of Scream to something really terrifying: Helen Mirren's horrifying pedal extremities!
Contains enough amusing moments and unpredictable twists for the film to score with teen audiences.
As a routinely cruel, often vicious, miserably unhappy teacher, Mirren offers a complex, brilliantly disciplined performance!
| Original Score: 4/4
A good mix of the nostalgic and the brand-new!
An entertaining film full of Williamson's familiar movie-reference-laced dialogue.
| Original Score: 6/10
Misguided teen thriller -- don't bother.
| Original Score: 1/5
Helen Mirren's acting stands out in this mean-spirited dark comedy like an original Picasso in a paint-by-numbers art show.
Here you have a movie in which three teenagers go to a teacher's house and take her hostage. Either you go all the way with that premise, or you don't go there at all.
| Original Score: 2/5
| Original Score: C
...a disappointingly flat piece of work.
| Original Score: 2/4
