    No Way Out

    ★★★½

    Poitier was such a gifted actor. I think the film’s script could have used a bit of tightening as this has a very long second act that bridges two tightly written, brilliantly executed acts. But he truly sells every beat. The ending walks such a high wire act, and runs the risk of becoming too much, but he absolutely sells every emotional beat.

    This just isn't a funny movie. The jokes all fall flat, the plot is completely underdeveloped, the characters are all uninteresting and the ending feels forced. I have to give credit to Jason Bateman and Mila Kunis for trying to make the most of their…
