In this week of rentals I found myself disappointed with many of this years “better” comedies, where two other films ending up where I expected them to be. If you’re considering renting The Alphabet Killer, Horrible Bosses, Your Highness, or Win Win then read my thoughts before making your choice this coming weekend.Read more "For Your Renting Pleasure"
Just Go With It has a couple of funny moments sprinkled into a contrived and implausible mess of a plot that is only kept afloat by its appealing group of actors. Sandler’s latest comedy romance flick is a bit confused with what it wants to be as it openly embraces broad physical comedy as well […]Read more "Review: Just Go With It"
I have never been a huge Adam Sandler fan, and based on the few clips and trailers I have seen I was pretty ready to write this one off.

Milo and Nicole are ex-husband and wife and haven’t seen each other since the divorce. Nicole works for a local paper and is on the […]Read more "Review: The Bounty Hunter"

Steve Zahn plays Mike, a motel manager who falls in love with (AKA becomes obsessed with) Jennifer Aniston’s art saleswoman, Sue, while she is passing through on business. Stupidly, in a bout of loneliness she […]Read more "Rental Review – Management"

The film follows an ensemble of intertwining characters and couples, for instance Jennifer […]Read more "Review: He’s Just Not That Into You"
