Sex Tape

on 7-25-2014

Sex Tape This light porn romantic comedy kind of fell flat, for me. The acting was stiff and working too hard at being funny rather than actually being comedic. Sure, there were some laughs but the mood was too held back to fully bloom into a great movie going experience. It is such a ripe topic to work with. The couple makes a sex tape that gets accidentally turned loose on the internet. Cameron...

A Million Ways To Die In The West I had been anticipating this movie since I first saw the previews for it. Now, after seeing it I am greatly disappointed. It is crude.

All conniving tricks are on the table. They do all they can think...

I am an on again, off again Adam Sandler fan. This time his teaming up with Drew Barrymore in this romantic comedy about two single parents getting together is a fun romp to be a part of. The acting feels...
