For a film all about finding oneself, Jumanji: The Next Level seems to have left its heart back in the jungle.
Easily the funniest film in the action-packed Fast & Furious universe, Hobbs & Shaw opens up new roads for this spin-off franchise to travel down.
If we are going to hold entertainers like Kevin Hart’s feet to the fire over offensive remarks, it's also time to start doing the same for organizations that don’t do due diligence before hiring these individuals in the first place.
This week, James and Yaw adapt the hit 1987 video game Contra!
The Wedding Ringer is the kind of bland comedy that could only come out in the month of January.
Since all three of this week's major releases all press screened at the same night and time during the week, here now are our reviews of the smart and funny remake of About Last Night and the astoundingly and laughably awful Winter's Tale. Also, an explanation as to why we don't have new reviews for Endless Love or Gloria, we double back on last week's never press screened Vampire Academy, we a look at Pussy Riot: A Punk Rock Prayer, which was the only new film at the Bloor this week, a special sneak at The Bloor tonight, family day offerings at The Bloor and the TIFF Bell Lightbox, and a look ahead to a Lightbox retrospective of some of Jean-Luc Godard's favourite Hollywood films starting on Thursday.
Forget that Ride Along is so cliched there are no surprises or that buddy cop movies are already too cliched to begin with. Despite the best efforts of Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, Tim Story's sanitized take on the genre is just too genial to be much fun.
Grudge Match is pretty tired and cliched sports movie pablum, but made a lot more palatable by a cast willing to go the extra mile to make their own comedic opportunities.
While not as fresh as his previous big screen stand-up outing, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain should appeal nicely to the comic's fans and those who wish this particular style of concert film would make a comeback.
While it will probably appeal to the most adoring fans of producer Judd Apatow and star Jason Segel, The Five-Year Engagement is a mean spirited, mostly unoriginal comedy that can never decide if it wants to pander to women or to bros, when it's a plot clearly designed to pander to the latter.
