MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Charlie (Jeff Daniels) and Audrey (Melanie Griffith) put on a good show for her mother in "Something Wild," a 1986 Orion Pictures release directed by Jonathan Demme.

Class of 1986: ‘Something Wild’

One of Jonathan Demme's masterworks — just spiky enough to draw blood and an uncommonly gripping romance about rebellion, reinvention … and maybe redemption.
David Patrick Kelly gets the upper hand on Ben Stiller in "Flirting with Disaster," writer-director David O. Russell's 1996 screwball comedy for Miramax Films.

Class of 1996: ‘Flirting with Disaster’

A comedy with little on its mind beyond detonating farcical fireworks over a full boat of stars, but it remains one of its form's finest from the last 20 years.

Ben Mendelsohn (center) and Ryan Reynolds play a pair of hard-luck gamblers in 2015's "Mississippi Grind," an A24 release co-directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.

Mississippi Grind

Career-best work by Ryan Reynolds & Ben Mendelsohn carries an unhurried, empathetic gambling drama that stays at the table a bit too long to achieve greatness.

We’re the Millers

"We're the Millers" may travel the same beaten path as previous road trip movies, but it's sure to tickle your funny bone more than once.

Bad Grandpa

If you've seen the previews for "Bad Grandpa," you've probably seen too much to enjoy the feature presentation.

Identity Thief

Overall "Identity Thief" is an enjoyable movie and a great way to spend a Friday night. Don't expect anything new, but do expect to laugh.

The Guilt Trip

A boilerplate road trip comedy with good leads and bad humor.

Pixar Talk: Finding Nemo

Victoria and Austin can't stop agreeing about how this holds up as one of the Pixar classics.
