Review – This Remake Es Muy Bueno (“Overboard”)

Must be remake time again! Not satisfied with just redoing the original 1987 movie, the writers decided to also gender swap as well because… reasons! But will doing this stunt make the film any better, or will it be a huge mistake? * * Mexico’s clowned prince of comedy in movies, Eugenio Derbez, stars as…

Review – Eye Of The Beholder (“I Feel Pretty”)

Pretentious clap-trap or meaningful self-help awareness? You can decide with Amy Schumer’s newest movie about a chubby girl that gets knocked in the head, wakes up, and suddenly thinks she’s a beautiful supermodel.

Review – Don’t Drink And Drive (“Chappaquiddick”)

Review – Cock-A-Doodle Don’t (“Blockers”)

The advertisements for this film depict a rooster along side the word “blockers”, so you can pretty much guess the REAL title of the movie was supposed to be C**k Blockers, but that FULL title ain’t gonna work on a movie poster, now is it? * * Ripping-off other (better) movies like Porky’s, American Pie,…
