    'Souvenir' review: Isabelle Huppert's chanteuse aims for a comeback

    Isabelle Huppert as a has-been chanteuse is all a film fan should need to stoke the wanna-see factor for "Souvenir," and it probably doesn't hurt that there's a May-December romance as an extra incentive for devotees of the magnetic French superstar. But promise is all one's left with after Belgian...

  • 'I Feel Pretty' review: Amy Schumer's fable about fat-shaming is frankly depressing

    'I Feel Pretty' review: Amy Schumer's fable about fat-shaming is frankly depressing

    In a 2015 sketch aired on Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” the one called “New Body,” Schumer played a woman shopping for a wardrobe for the body she’s always wanted. The clothing store clerk, thin and deadpan, is the perfect foil for Schumer’s chipper, play-along reactions. With those two...

  • 'Super Troopers 2' review: Cheesy '80s vibe falls woefully flat

    'Super Troopers 2' review: Cheesy '80s vibe falls woefully flat

    "Super Troopers 2" is an aggressively lame and slobby comedy full of cardboard characters and in-your-face naughty jokes that feel about as dangerous as old vaudeville routines. Yet if you watch it and think, "Wow, this sure is cheesy and dumb," you've just paid the people who made it a compliment....

  • 'Lean on Pete' review: A horse story of a different, darker color

    'Lean on Pete' review: A horse story of a different, darker color

    When we first see 15-year-old Charley Thompson, the human center of the devastating new film “Lean on Pete,” he’s jogging on the streets of Portland, Ore., a long way from the bohemian coffee bars and “Portlandia” cliches of popular culture. This is the other side of the tracks, the America all...

  • 'Chappaquiddick' review: Selling a tragedy, the Kennedy way

    'Chappaquiddick' review: Selling a tragedy, the Kennedy way

    A political biopic’s most difficult target lies in the elusive circle above character assassination and below hagiography. “Chappaquiddick” misses that target. But it’s a fairly intriguing mixture of strengths and weaknesses, a case of a sharp cast and a careful director toning up a script best...

  • 'Blockers' review: John Cena, Leslie Mann play parents out to stop a prom night sex pact

    'Blockers' review: John Cena, Leslie Mann play parents out to stop a prom night sex pact

    I went into “Blockers” cringing and came out smiling, which says more about me (double standard! They wouldn’t treat graduating high school males that way!) than it says about the movie. But that’s how moviegoing works. We’re pre-judgy that way. And “Blockers,” the feature directorial debut of...

  • 'A Quiet Place' review: Hush, little family, don't say a word or the monsters will get you

    'A Quiet Place' review: Hush, little family, don't say a word or the monsters will get you

    Director John Krasinski’s third feature, and by far his most accomplished, “A Quiet Place” is a pretty crafty small-scale thriller set a few years in the future, with minimal dialogue and maximal, human-eating monsters. The creatures’ origin is never discussed or explained by way of the usual sheepish...
