Going in Style (2017)

April 7, 2017
"Going in Style" is a laugh-out-loud, humor-filled movie that features Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, and Ann-Margret. An example of the humor is when a doctor tells Willie (Freeman) that he needs a new kidney. "I'll look on eBay," Willie replies. Willie is good friends with Joe (Caine) [...]

Takers

August 27, 2010
"Takers" is a fast-paced action film with your usual twists and turns, robbers stealing from other thieves, cops chasing the bad guys and then the bad guys chase each other. Rather predictable as films of this type usually are. Heavy language and adult situations permeate this pic making it [...]

Armored

December 4, 2009
This is an escapism film and the pace is fast and furious at times. Not long into the movie, the heist is pulled off seemingly without a hitch. However, an unexpected witness throws a wrench into the plan. The acting is convincing with Columbus Short playing Ty Hackett, an Iraq War veteran who [...]

You, Me and Dupree

July 14, 2006
This movie is laugh-out-loud funny during the course of its hour-and-fifty-minute length. Dupree totally upsets the household of newlyweds Carl and Molly Peterson. He is a likable nut who is Carl's best friend, and even wears a "BM" sign on his shirt during Carl and Molly's wedding, which stands [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Herbie: Fully Loaded" has everything you would want in a family movie. It is exciting, entertaining, and fun for all ages. Herbie is a little older but you'll love him just the same. This movie brought me back to my youth when a family film could be fun for both old and young alike. While the plot [...]

Crash

May 6, 2005
Prior to seeing this film I hadn’t construed a common theme other than the lives of several groups of people intersect because of an accident. It didn’t take much time to derive racism and stereotypes as the focal points. The writers effectively addressed their opinions on the prevalence of [...]

One Night at McCools

April 27, 2001
This heavy-handed sex farce is filled with dopey, unlikable characters, and not much else. Most of the humor rests on crude, and sometimes deviant sexual activity, while the rest of the humor is drained out of a poor soul whose life is destroyed by a psychopath with one aim - owning a home, [...]
