    Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King

    ★★½

    Hasan is an extremely talented storyteller, but I just don't find him to be very funny. Kind of an issue for a comedy special. Kelly pegged him as an inspirational speaker-sort, and I think that sort of nails it. Unfortunately, I'm not one for inspirational speaker seminars. Has its moments, tho. (C+)

  • My Best Friend's Wedding

    My Best Friend's Wedding

    ★★★★

    Far as romantic comedies go, this is a pretty good one. And the first in what I hope to be a series of Mulligan Drive-In Movie Nights (B+)

    My Week with Marilyn

    ★★

    Makes the mistake of centering the story around its least interesting character. This film felt like one man's story about how he overlooked every obvious sign of Marilyn Monroe's eventual drug overdose so he could sleep with her.
