(Roger Longenbach)  05/12/2011 11:25 AM EST
From the mind of Kristen Wiig and produced by Judd Apatow, this movie can be summed up as an odd female version of The Hangover.  But I don't think it's as good as what it was aiming for.  Funny in many places, the story falls flat and may only relate to certain audiences. Story/Script/Plot Development (D):  Without giving much ...

December 2010's Gulliver's Travels starring Jack Black (School Of Rock) comes to Blu-ray and DVD this April based loosely on the classic novel by Jonathan Swift, the film takes many liberties with its source material, and really the two are intended for completely different audiences.  Though certainly a a family film, and one that you'll ...

Back in 2006, an intelligent animated film entitled, Hoodwinked! was unleashed on unsuspecting audiences!  The film provided a twist on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, and told the story from many different character perspectives.  Now after years of waiting (and lawsuits as well), Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil is coming to audiences.... Read More

(Maureen Buccellato)  04/28/2011 9:34 AM EST
Disney "Prom" is a film made about -- you guessed it -- the Prom!  This squeaky-clean high school film is a breath of fresh air from the usual high-school- themed films that one sees nowadays.  Hokey?  Maybe, but it is nice to be able to bring a young girl to a movie without worrying about seeing alcohol or drug use and lot...

Back in 2001, a little summer film, entitled The Fast & The Furious, was launched on moviegoers.  The film, directed by Rob Cohen (xXx), provided enough box office muscle to green light numerous sequels. Fast-forward 10 years to 2011 as Fast Five, the fifth film in the series, is set upon audiences.  Fast Five stars an ensemble cast f... Read More
