Life of the Party is another collaboration by Melissa McCarthy, who serves as lead actor and co-writer, with her husband Ben Falcone who also directs the feature. McCarthy’s character, Deanna, is a typical suburban mom on the brink of empty nest syndrome as her daughter leaves for college but is unexpectedly faced with divorce and […]

Super Troopers 2 Movie Review

Super Troopers 2: The highly anticipated Super Troopers sequel comes to the screen nearly 17 years after the original raunchy comedy launched Broken Lizard’s debut feature into beloved cult status. The gang of inept Vermont highway patrolmen returns to duty after being once again dismantled, this time due to an unspecified “Fred Savage incident.” The […]

I Feel Pretty Movie Review

I Feel Pretty: Writing-directing duo Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein make their feature film debut with the Amy Schumer-led film, I Feel Pretty. The film sees Schumer as Renee, an insecure woman who gains an extreme boost in her confidence after hitting herself in the head. Joining Schumer is Rory Scovel as Renee’s love interest, […]

Game Night: Movie Review

Directing duo, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, return for the first time since their debut feature film, Vacation, released nearly three years ago. While Vacation was received very poorly by fans and critics, that should not deter audiences from seeing their new film, Game Night. After a not-so-great marketing campaign, I think most people […]

Coco: Battle of the Reviews Part 2

Sometimes a movie comes out and it seems to speak directly to you. It might be because you relate to the characters or it has a message that you need to hear. Watching Coco, Pixar’s first story revolving around Mexican culture, I felt like I was watching something that was made specifically for me. Much […]

Battle of the Sexes: Movie Review

In 1973, the world’s #1 women’s tennis player Billie Jean King and former champion Bobby Riggs engaged in a historic tennis match that would be dubbed The Battle of the Sexes. In the lead-up to this match, and having just beat Margaret Court, Riggs ridiculed women and constantly claimed that men were superior to women. […]

Girls Trip Movie Review

Having recently just seen the female led comedy Rough Night, I came in expecting something similar from Malcolm D. Lee’s Girls Trip. What I got was not only very different, but extremely enjoyable.  A departure from Lee’s typically male dominated ensembles, this comedy gold written and starring black women, plays an important role in representation by allowing the […]

Despicable Me 3: Movie Review

Upon my viewing of Despicable Me 3, one other movie came to my mind: The 6th Day.  If you don’t know this movie, essentially the main thing I remember about it is that the main character, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, keeps getting cloned and every time he does the clones get more and more stupid.  And […]

The Big Sick: Movie Review

It’s hard to look at The Big Sick and not praise it as the best romantic comedy of the last couple of years. The film, which stars Kumail Nanjiani, is based on Nanjiani’s real-life experience with his wife and the struggles they went through to be together. This movie is heartfelt, hilarious and everything one […]

Rough Night Movie Review

The summer movie season has begun, and so far it’s delivered two amazing films featuring badass women and no, I wouldn’t use the designation of chick-flicks. In a movie age where we are finally realizing how much representation matters, Wonder Woman and Rought Night arrive at the perfect time though they each deliver completely different […]
