'Ridiculous 6' flap again exposes Sandler's mean side

In the 2007 comedy “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,” one man’s quest for decent health insurance leads to a sham romantic coupling of the heterosexual firefighters played by Adam Sandler and Kevin James.

    Review: 'The Water Diviner'

    Russell Crowe's feature directorial debut, "The Water Diviner," stems from an honest impulse to dramatize ordinary people who honor their dead. Yet the results are narratively dishonest and emotionally a little cheap. A single performance lifts the film above the level of mediocrity; more on that...

    Review: 'Adult Beginners'

    With an awful lot of American indies, there appears to be some sort of self-regulation in place preventing any serious highs or lows, any stylistic risks or surprises.

    Review: 'Child 44'

    Part serial-killer thriller, part old-school anti-Soviet propaganda, "Child 44" plays like a curious relic of an earlier Cold War mindset, when Western audiences took comfort that they were living on the right side of the Iron Curtain and relied on movies to remind them as much.

    Review: 'Monkey Kingdom'

    Compile all the sufferings and adversities heaped upon all the vulnerable protagonists in the complete works of Charles Dickens, from "Little Dorrit" to "Oliver Twist," and you'd still fall short of the 81 minutes of hardship endured by Maya, the simian heroine of Disneynature's new nature documentary...
