‘Captain Underpants’ Is A Mighty Tighty Whitey Delight (Movie Review)

Huzzah or should I say tra la laaa! for another solid superhero movie this month. I have no familiarity with the Captain Underpants children’s book series, but I’m all for a film that can turn juvenile humor into an enjoyable, colorful and clever animated comedy about friendship and being yourself. That’s about as deep as it gets and while […]

Vacation (Blu-ray Review)

Believe it or not, July 29th’s Vacation is actually the fifth theatrical and the seventh total installment of the National Lampoon’s Vacation series.  However, that stat does little to phase or impress me.  While I loved some of the earlier National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, the trailers for 2015’s Vacation absolutely rocked.  So much so that I felt if a trailer can elicit that much laughter […]

Comedy Bang Bang: The Complete First Season (DVD Review)

I am a big fan of Comedy Bang Bang and the comedic sensibilities of its creator and star Scott Aukerman.  I have to follow that statement by saying Comedy Bang Bang can be very divisive, as it presents a type of absurdist humor that not everyone can go along with.  Yes, the show features a […]

We’re The Millers (Blu-ray Review)

Come on!  Let’s be serious here!  I initially only saw this movie for two main reasons.  First, I had to check out Jennifer Aniston’s banging stripper body (tell me who didn’t) and second, when that boy starts singing “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls” in the RV at the end of the film’s theatrical trailer, he had […]

‘We’re The Millers’ And The Audience May Laugh (Movie Review)

While I have seen plenty of raunchy comedies (This Is The End, The To Do List) and ones that skew towards the darker side (The World’s End, The Hangover: Part III), let alone perfectly safe comedies (The Internship) this year, I can’t say there have been too many pure wacky comedies.  I guess The Heat […]

‘Hangover 3’: The Legend Of Chow’s Gold (Movie Review)

The Hangover franchise is one of the best examples of diminishing returns.  The first film in the series was a big success and generally well liked.  Part II presented the same story in a different location, but had enough goodwill to make it a success anyway.  Time has not been kind to Part II, as […]

Up next we’ve got The Duplass Bros. sleeper comedy Jeff, Who Lives At Home starring the cry-baby from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Jason Segel […]
