The Boss (2016)

Melissa McCarthy is a comedy force to be reckoned with, and, one feels, someone perfect for our times. Yet it seems a little difficult to consistently focus her comedy chops throughout an entire feature film. Her work with Paul Feig is terrific — when she's at her best, she's empowered — but otherwise, she seems to fall prey to the wrong kind of lowbrow. The Boss is co-written and directed by her husband Ben Falcone. I did not see their previous collaboration, Tammy (2014), but judging by its general reception, and judging by The Boss, I'd guess that a spousal relationship and a working relationship are two different things. read more...

Snatched (2017)

Scads of very funny, women-led comedy films have graced theaters in recent years, including Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy, Trainwreck, Pitch Perfect, and even last year's acclaimed, but destroyed-by-social-media Ghostbusters, but they can't all be winners. read more...

Holmes & Watson (2018)

A shockingly misguided assault of repetitive bad slapstick and sexual innuendo, this comedy would be an almost complete disaster, if not for the two leads' chemistry and the appealing period design. read more...

Ass Backwards (2013)

Comediennes June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson wrote the screenplay for Ass Backwards, their first since the horrendous Bride Wars. They have not shown improvement. This time they star as two very stupid characters, and the movie's one joke is that they don't quite realize how pathetic they are. This kind of joke could work, if the characters were charming and had the ability to win over other characters, but these women remain stupid and annoying throughout. No one likes them, and for good reason. read more...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)

I caught up with this pop music mockumentary late, and as much as I longed to see the world of boy bands and inane pop music skewered, I found it to be largely unfunny and altogether a bit too predictable. To start, the main character Conner (Andy Samberg) is that deadly combination of arrogant and inept, which is very hard to pull off and usually ends up annoying me. He is a former member of the Style Boyz, a group made up of his old childhood pals. Having split up, he went solo with a phenomenal debut album. His new record, however, is a flop, and now he must try to figure out where he went wrong. (Hint: he may have to consider getting back together with his old band... surprise!) Normally funny actors like Sarah Silverman, Joan Cusack, and Bill Hader are not funny here. The movie is mostly cameos and very broad humor, with very little actual satire, and all of it forced into a typical feel-good message. I couldn't help wondering why folks like Nas, RZA, Snoop Dogg, and Ringo Starr agreed to appear in this, unless they didn't read the script. read more...
