One Popcorn: Flop
Two Popcorns: Wait till it’s on video
Three Popcorns: Go see it
Four Popcorns: Standing ovation
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jonathon Pryce, Felicity Jones, Rupert Everett, Ashley Jensen
Director: Tanya Wexler
Comment: A funny premise and script based on an old, but popular, “medical procedure.” Some laugh-out-loud scenes and a nice story.
‘Rock of Ages’
Genre: Musical /dramatic comedy
Cast: Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta Jones, Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise
Director: Adam Shankman
Comment: Perfect if you are an ex-stoner or currently stoned. Otherwise, buy the soundtrack — it’s much better than the movie. Celebrity cast detracts from the screenplay. They should have kept it on the stage.
‘That’s My Boy’
Cast: Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Leighton Meester, Vanilla Ice, James Caan
Director: Sean Anders
Comment: “Airhead city.” Sandler is going backward at a dead run with this one. He is much better than this. Grossness doesn’t equal true comedy.
