    Jenny Slate: Stage Fright


    Fine for an evening by the fire. But not uproarious.

  • Saved!



    You think Mandy Moore had trouble pretending to be an awful dancer in that prom scene?

    Straightforward plot. Very little narrative embellishment, kinda poor dialog (hence the narrator). Camera has some moments of inspiration but mostly they’re just showing the actors. Color is blah. Acting is acceptable. Hillary Faye with the Bible missile is pretty great.

    A Simple Favor


    An insufficiently pansexual thriller that is utterly under-directed.

    Plenty of good performances, scads of chemistry, moments of more than competent camera work and clever editing. Still comes up short.

    Wildly bad.
    What a waste.

    Best scene is where Jet Li and Jacky Chan beat up that white kid.
