"Dumb and Dumber To"

...exploits, but the humor is so slight, so easy, so base that I found it hard to believe this was from the same writer/directors. Jim Carrey doesn't seem to have aged much, but as I mentioned, Daniels has, and not well. And poor Kathleen...

Movie review: Lots of fun on the way to 'World's End'

...marks an end, of sorts. It is the final film in a trilogy, though "trilogy" should only be applied loosely. Writer/director Edgar Wright and his collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost first brought us the touching, thoughtful, and gut-wrenchingly...

...somebody up, the girl that stops somebody from getting beat up," Moore took on the challenge of playing a character writer-director Stuart Blumberg actually based on her."I had this idea for this female character who was like Pink," Blumberg...

Anchorman 2 an exception to rule

...rehash of the funniest bits from the first movie, the "Anchorman" sequel is really playing to its strengths. Maybe writer/director Adam McKay and writer/star Will Ferrell can be accused of playing it safe, but really, why not? People going...

Reeling it in: Legos, monuments and great expectations

...isn't its ambition, but it's execution. Many of the intricate puzzle pieces just don't fit, no matter how much writer/director Joseph Kosinski seems to want them to. Morgan Freeman shows up as the leader of a mysterious band of humans who...

'Obama's America' draws conclusions without any facts

...just plain terrible. D'Souza clearly thinks of himself as a counterpart to Michael Moore. Not only is he the writer/director, but he's also the star. The film starts out with some background. D'Souza, like Obama, is the child of...

Reeling It In: This comedy really tries hard

...role of the uptight, oblivious nerd, his manic side barely contained by a nearly impenetrable wall of positivity. Writer/director McKay, who tunes Ferrell's roles to the actor's exact rhythm, wisely includes scenes where these carefully...
