Blended – I am not an Adam Sandler fan.  I have never seen "Happy Gilmore", "Billy Madison" or "The Wedding Singer" and I only got about 30 minutes through "Jack and Jill" before turning it off.   Based on my bias, while I liked "50 First Dates", I wasn't looking forward to sitt... Read More

Muppets Most Wanted is anything but.  Like so many movie sequels it doesn't come close to the original, or in this case, the first movie in the most recent reboot of the Muppets.  Watching the Muppet show growing up was always fun and I am inclined to love almost anything Muppets but this sequel just wasn't good.  I kept looking for ...
