Broken City (2013)

"Planted smack-dab in the middle of the January dumping season -- where cinematic stinkers are unleashed to dirty the elbows of Oscar hopefuls -- Broken City is slotted exactly where it belongs."

Hysteria (2012)

"Ultimately, Hysteria isn't much more than a modest trifle of a movie, soon to be forgotten before we hit the parking lot."

The Three Stooges (2012)

"Neither as laugh-out-loud funny as many had hoped for, nor as excruciatingly dreadful as most feared it would be."

Like Crazy (2011)

"For a film with virtually no plot, little scripted dialogue, and only the most basic of character sketches, Like Crazy manages to say more about true love than even the grandest of classic love stories."

What's Your Number? (2011)

"In spite of efforts to instill in our young women the notion that self-worth shouldn't be measured by her ability to attract a husband, filmmakers continue to craft comedy from that very outmoded belief."

The Debt (2011)

Our Idiot Brother (2011)

"More clever than laugh-out-loud funny, the comedy is mostly driven by our observations of Ned, who can't help screwing up the lives of his sisters one-by-one, despite his good intentions."

30 Minutes or Less (2011)

"Balancing the film's raunchy comedic tone with just the right amount of action and slap-to-the-face reality takes a deft hand. And that's exactly what he does here."

The Change-Up (2011)

"A film that fails to counter its smutty better half with anything other than schmaltzy, sentimental hogwash."

Beginners (2011)

"Mike Mills has taken a particularly confusing and painful part of his own life and turned it into a moving expression of acceptance, compromise, and the struggle to overcome obstacles."

Submarine (2011)

The Tree of Life (2011)

"Yes, Malick's Tree of Life is a beautiful film and its visuals will stay with you for a long time. There's no question he's a master visual filmmaker. But his storytelling must now be seriously examined."

Bridesmaids (2011)

"Bridesmaids is not a movie for those looking for a pleasant, uneventful night out at the movies. Yes, it's touching. And yes, it resonates with a heart of gold. But it's also awkward, raunchy, and disgusting. Just like real life."

Something Borrowed (2011)

"We're never given any legitimate reason why Rachel would consider the self-absorbed Darcy such a dear friend for so many years."
