Bolt (2008)

"Best of all though is Curb Your Enthusiasm's Susie Essman, touching and uncomfortably honest in her exchanges with Bolt and Greg Germann (Ally McBeal), who is hysterically funny as Penny's opportunistic and less than diplomatic agent."

Sex Drive (2008)

"Just about as raunchy as a comedy like this can possibly get. It's 'American Pie' with the brakes off ."
