Tag (2018) Review

Amiable and undemanding, “Tag” manages the seemingly impossible by managing to sustain a whole movie from its amusing but slight premise thanks to winning performances from a game cast and a few spectacular set-pieces. Based on a true story, “Tag” tells the tale of a group of five childhood friends who have been playing the … Continue reading Tag (2018) Review

The Babysitter (2017) Review

Slashing its way onto Netflix this Friday 13th, McG’s “The Babysitter” is a Hallowe’en “Home Alone” delight. When his parents leave for a weekend getaway, 12-year-old Cole (Judah Lewis) doesn’t really mind that he’s the only kid in his class who still has a Babysitter. And, to be fair, who would if their babysitter was … Continue reading The Babysitter (2017) Review

Hell Baby (2014) Review

If you’re a fan of “Reno 911!” then you’ll probably get a kick out of this reasonably amusing spoof of “Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Omen”, “Devil’s Due” and a dozen other coming-of-the-anti-Christ movies. Starring Leslie Bibb and Rob Corddry (an actor I always get muddled up with David Koechner), it tells the story of a young … Continue reading Hell Baby (2014) Review

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011) Review

There are some films where you can clearly detect the studio production meetings in the finished product. “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” is such a movie. Originally intended as a vehicle for Vince Vaughan, leading man duties eventually fell to Jason Sudeikis. Arguably, that could be considered an improvement but with the rest of the … Continue reading A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011) Review

Movie 43 (2013) Review

Apparently ten years in the making, “Movie 43” is what I suspect Forrest Gump’s mother would have described as being like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re going to get. I always felt sorry for that woman – with everything she had to endure in her life, nobody ever took the time … Continue reading Movie 43 (2013) Review
