A rather disappointing comedy that is very much a product of its time.
If you like Jim Carrey, you might find it interesting to see him in this early role.
If you like the ‘80s, you may find the music, clothing, and design in this film enjoyable.
If you are looking for a good comedy, you should stay far away from this film. […]
The second half of the Breaking Dawn story concludes the 5-film run of the Twilight franchise.
Breaking Dawn, Part 2 is in many ways more interesting than Part 1, but it still feels rather weak. […]
As the story of Bella moves towards its finale, the franchise’s weaknesses accumulate. With Breaking Dawn, Part 1 being weaker than the previous Twilight films, the plot is often treading water, making this one of those films in serious need of a fast-forward button. […]

The third and (so far) final film in the Lost Boys franchise is not really better or worse than the second. But to me it is more enjoyable, possibly because it seems more willing to poke fun at itself. […]
A classic in its own right, albeit a rather controversial one, 1992’s Buffy has perhaps more in common with other post-Hughes teen-comedies than with Joss Whedon’s TV show. Still the film is not as bad as you might have been told, although the third act is undeniably a bit of a train-wreck. […]
This sequel to the 1987 film is burdened by a whole bunch of problems, making it a merely passable “also-ran”. […]
