Fist Fight
Fist Fight (2017)
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Charlie Day and Ice Cube are ready to rumble in the outrageous screwball comedy Fist Fight. In fear of his job Any Campbell rats out a fellow teacher who gets fired, leading him to challenge Campbell to a fight at the end of the day. Day is hilarious and elevates the material, and Jillian Bell is surprisingly good as well. However, the writing is pretty bad, as it's ridiculous how out of control the school is. And there's far too much vulgarity and crudeness. Yet, ultimately it's all about the fight; which proves to be an exciting knock-down, drag-out, bare-knuckle brawl. It's got a lot of problems, but Fist Fight is entertaining and delivers some good laughs.

Blades of Glory
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Incredibly funny, Blades of Glory is a hilarious sports/buddy comedy. After receiving lifetime bans from men's competitive ice skating, rivals Chazz Michael Michaels and Jimmy MacElroy team up as a couples team intent on winning Olympic gold. Starring Will Ferrell, Jon Heder, Amy Poehler, and Will Arnett, the film is well-cast with a lot of good comedic talent. However, the comedy is kind of broad and rather hit-and-miss. And none of the skating routines are all that impressive; though there are some fun moments here and there. It's a little scattershot, but Blades of Glory is entertaining and delivers some good laughs.

Baywatch
Baywatch (2017)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Based on the hit '90s television series, Baywatch is a big-budget action comedy that falls flat. The story follows a disgraced Olympic swimmer who gets a second chance as a lifeguard, but must prove himself to alpha male head lifeguard Mitch; who takes his job super seriously. Despite being led by Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, and Alexandra Daddario, the cast is pretty underwhelming. And, the villain is especially weak and has a nonsensical plan. Also, the comedy is poorly written, going for a lot of cheap sex jokes and gross-out humor. But worst of all, it's not very sexy and there's nothing exotic about the beach. A complete mess, Baywatch isn't that fun or entertaining, and has none of the charm that the television show had.

CHIPS
CHIPS (2017)
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Dax Shepard and Michael Peña star in the buddy cop comedy CHIPS. When a California Highway Patrol officer is killed by a band of robbers the FBI sends in an undercover agent to bring them down; but first he'll have to learn to get along with his fastidious rookie partner. Shepard and Peña have good comedic chemistry and give solid performances. However, the film goes a little overboard with the crude sexual and gross-out humor. And the plot is pretty formulaic and hits a lot of the usual tropes and clichés of cop films. CHIPS delivers some laughs, but ends up being generic and overly raunchy.

Titanic: The Animated Movie
9 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

"Party time! It's party time! Everybody's feelin' fine 'cause it's party time!" Titanic: The Legend Goes On... is a mildly inappropriate and poorly made animated film that tells a Cinderella story aboard the ill-fated luxury liner. When a young orphaned girl named Angelica meets a rich and handsome young man named William, the two fall in love while traveling on the Titanic; meanwhile an elderly dowager works with a pair of bumbling thieves to rob first class passengers. The animation is substandard, with rather generic and cartoonish looking character designs. And the script is incredibly weak, doing very little character building and leaving tons of loose plot threads. At times it kind of works and is fun to laugh at (there's a rapping dog for goodness' sake), but Titanic: The Legend Goes On... is just too much of a mess to really enjoy.
