UTC_6-6-14_04146.CR2HOT PURSUIT

“I walked out.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“Though HOT PURSUIT is not the worst cinematic experience I have had this year, its lack of actual comedy is decidedly cringeworthy.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“…a throwback to those old ’80s comedies you always find yourself watching way too often on cable on hungover Sunday afternoons.” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine

“Hilarity ensues – and by hilarity, I mean I laughed twice.” – Monica Castillo

 

dtrainTHE D-TRAIN

“I’m unable to completely slam THE D TRAIN, but I wouldn’t suggest that anyone rush out to theaters to see it since I simply don’t think it’s worth the money.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“The film is largely without charm, and it’s brim-full of ‘Oh No They Didn’t!’” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 

meeeWELCOME TO ME

“It helps that Wiig uses her well-honed comedic chops and adds a layer of dramatic desperation.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

 

Maggie-1MAGGIE

“Arnold’s doing Eastwood again, and this is his MILLION DOLLAR ZOMBIE.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

 

 

5-flights-up5 FLIGHTS UP

“It really shouldn’t be such a novelty to see a movie about two senior citizens that doesn’t portray them as clumsy, sex-crazed curmudgeons for cheap laughs, but here we are.” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine
