BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 03/27/2015

GET HARDget-hard-trailer

“GET HARD is the comedic equivalent of listening to a couple of bros regurgitate prison rape jokes at a family dinner table.” – Sam Cohen, Sumo Skinny

“What [Cohen] lacks in insight he almost makes up for in moxy (and an endless supply of dick jokes).”  - Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“Will Ferrell needs to be stopped.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“At least Hart and Ferrell have solid comic chemistry.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

“While I wish it offered more intellectually in the form of a meaningful story, GET HARD does provide legitimate entertainment.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“HOME is not going to be anyone’s new favorite film from Dreamworks. It will, however, serve as a really fun time out with your kids to the theater.” - Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“…a charming entertainment for children that should amuse the adults that have to accompany them.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies


Serena with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer LawrenceSERENA

“…director Susanne Bier never veers from a tone of mournful humorlessness, sticking firmly to prestige-picture blandness when the material clearly calls for something much soapier and wilder. ” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine

“certainly a mixed bag, but has enough in it to keep me interested, and another chance to see these two actors at work.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

“Some guys just don’t look good in hats.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“Handsome to look at, but saddled with tonally inconsistent plot points and performances, SERENA falls short, and falls flat.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
