    The Parent Trap

    ★★★★

    A very sweet, often funny remake, with great performances from pretty much everyone involved, and I’ll maintain that the Dennis Quaid reaction shot and his “aww man” when he comes out of the tent (and sees Meredith out on the lake) is an all-timer comedy moment for me.

  • The Happytime Murders

    -The puppetry is phenomenal
    -Maya Rudolph is pretty great
    -The puppetry is phenomenal
    -There are a few laughs in the first half
    -The puppetry is phenomenal

    That’s all I got

    The Boy Next Door

    This movie is kind of amazing. Put aside all of the terrible double entendres (I love your mother's cookies, etc.). Put aside one of the most blatantly obvious Chekhov's gun examples I've seen in a while. Put aside the fact that Ryan Guzman is playing a 19 year old when he looks like a 35 year old underwear model. Put aside one of the quickest normal to batshit insane flips in modern movie history. Put aside the fucking cat jump…

  • Double Jeopardy

    Double Jeopardy

    ★★½

    Pretty sure this isn't how the double jeopardy clause works.

    And if it did, I'm sure the courts would be more than happy to convict Ashley Judd's character of the following crimes:

    Parole violation
    Breaking and entering
    Resisting arrest
    Assault
    Unlawful possession of a firearm
    Hit and run
    Identity theft

    This is a dumb movie.

    Still, it's fun to see Jones play a variation on his Agent Gerard character from The Fugitive, and Ashley Judd is a likable protagonist.

    This movie is really dumb, though.
