On January 1st, Netflix will launch a first-of-its-kind comedy special to help lift our spirits as we ring in the new year.
On this episode we review Back in the Day starring Morena Baccarin, Michael Rosenbaum, and Nick Swardson. We also take a look forward with our annual Summer Movie Preview.
Thanks to woefully diminished expectations and a willing desire to offend anyone and everyone in its path, the Adam Sandler comedy That's My Boy still offers more for Sandler fans than his last handful of movies.
30 Minutes or Less is a strange sort of film, but the elements are all there to make for a decent bit of entertainment. It is an affably ridiculous action comedy that takes an extremely convoluted plot and boils it down to a film that clocks in at just a shade over 80 minutes. The film continues in the same self-referential vein of most hybrid comedies of the past few years, with nods to everything from Die Hard and The Great Santini, to Friday the 13th Part 3. It all adds up to a film that is fun while it lasts, but ultimately ends up going nowhere special.
