I'm not going to lie, when I first saw how beautiful and healthy the girl playing the "Designated Ugly Fat Friend" or "DUFF" was I did not want to watch this film. I was afraid it was going to send out the wrong message. A girlfriend or two suggested it to me so I finally caved and I am so happy...

Mario "Cantinflas" Moreno was a well-known and beloved Mexican comedic actor. He made a ton of movies that while comedic were picaresque also in that they sought to challenge ingrained Mexican attitudes. He also poked fun at Mexicans themselves, there is an old film called "El Profe...
This surprisingly funny charming little movie stars Donald Glover before he became "famous". Following three best friends who form the Mystery Team as they embark on their most dangerous case yet. Really stoooopid, really funny!
Melissa McCarthy did not disappoint in this movie. The details of the storyline are pretty vague when it comes to the trailer and I think that was great because there were so many more surprises in the movie. It's definitely full of laughs. There are some heart felt moments as well, but the...
Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) is frustrated and bored with the uninspired menu at the restaurant where he works when a scathing review from top online food critic Ramsey Michel (Oliver Platt) topples what self esteem he has left. An unwise social media blow up about the review loses Chef Casper...
This is definitely not the typical western movie. The storyline is a bit predictable, but I think this movie was an attempt to parody the western movies. I did love that throughout the movie, the main character highlights the many ways you could die in the west. In that aspect it can be...
I wanted to watch this movie because I like Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr in the television show "The New Girl" and they didn't disappoint. I love the comedic timing, I am not sure if it's improv or scripted, but either way I enjoyed it. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is...
Hoy en este dia de duelo, recordamos a Don Roberto Gomez Bolaños "Chespirito". Mija, tienes a un gran comediante que segurament te hara sonreir.
Based on a true story this movie is about two men who come from diametrically opposite sides of society. One is a handicapped millionaire called Phillippe who lives in a Parisian mansion with a fleet of servants, the other is an African immigrant called Driss who lives by his wits...
This is a great indie movie. And if you love food this movie is awesome. Carl leaves his current post at a restaurant because he isn't allowed the creativity he thrives while cooking. A food truck seems like the best option for him to find his creativity. Also, bonding with his son as they take...
This movie definitely has the makings of a romantic comedy, but it's not stereotypical. First off, it's mostly from the male perspective. The three guys are trying to balance their lives with their friends and dating. They need/want to grow up, but don't really know how to. It has some definite...
If you're looking for a guilty pleasure movie to relax with after a long day, this is it. Chris Pine (Captain Kirk) and Tom Hardy (of Inception) are CIA agent partners and best friends. Separately, they meet and are attracted to the same beautiful girl - Reese Witherspoon. They make a pact to...

This movie has a great story. The movie is in Spanish, but there are English subtitles. The story is basically about a father that will do anything to keep is daughter safe and happy. I believe every parent can relate to that. The movie does have it's comedic moments, but it also touches...
On his 21st birthday, Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) learns he has a genetic pre-disposition for time travel. With guidance from his father (Bill Nighy), he sets out to use his powers to find love. He quickly finds out that being able to "fix" your mistakes and smooth out the bumpy moments in life isn't...
"The English Teacher" is so terrible because it starts, and even ends, in such a cute way, so full of quirky potential, but flails around in the middle with more stupid mistakes no one wants to take responsibility for than should ever be allowed in a mere 93 minutes.
Julianne Moore plays...
Original, charming and unexpected, Celeste & Jesse Forever manages to be smart and silly at the same time, largely due to the excellent writing by Rashida Jones. The heartfelt performances of Jones and Andy Samberg were both moving and hilarious. Unlike other romantic...
I grew up in a former British colony and in the 80s we only had one television station so you had no choice but to watch whatever was on (unless of course you rented a movie or something). This show came on at night and was hugely popular. I recently started looking at it again and it has...
This quirky romantic comedy is just what the doctor ordered. From the indomitable spirit of Maude to the implausible desperation of Harold I just can't get enough. When they are picketing by the seashore is one of my favorite moments in film. Also, I want to try out Maude's "Odorifics"... Love...
Inspired by the silent, slap-stick comedy of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Harold Lloyd, Pierre Étaix (rhymes with “apex”) produced a series of short and feature-length films between 1962 and 1971 that are completely unique and utterly charming. A series of complex rights...
Johnny Suede is an offbeat comedy about the forays of a young man obsessed with leading a rock and roll lifestyle. Highlights include a young and still relatively unknown Brad Pitt and the musician Nick Cave sporting a giant pasty pompadour. This film will not appeal to all tastes, as...
Ouch - in this sharp, biting film based on a play, two yuppie couples misbehave over a dispute between their boys. The comedic aspects take awhile to shine through the brutality of their attempts at diplomacy.
