A group of office workers are killed off one by one after surviving a freak accident. Superior fifth instalment of the stunt death franchise, with ingenious kill sequences and a sense of fun throughout, plus a very well-staged plot reversal.
Enjoyable comedy that sees a group of gaming friends caught up in a real murder mystery. Some laugh out loud moments here, with a strong cast that make good on some flimsy material at times. Worth a look!
A retired rock singer has to rescue his kidnapped wife. Oddball comedy-thriller with some good ideas and performances, but awkward logic and a lack of actual action. A bit of a mess, but not without its moments; Banderas seems to be enjoying himself.
A disgraced mogul fights to get her old status back, with the reluctant help of her former PA. Inconsistent comedy with an over-reliance on semi-improvised insult battles rather than having a script that’s organically funny. A lesser McCarthy vehicle.
A disgraced Olympic swimmer becomes a lifeguard. Patchy and overlong reprise of the 90s TV show. Some funny moments, but they’re spread over a thin plot, iffy CG and a reliance on beach bodies and grossout/insult humour to carry the day.
Want a second opinion? Here’s Xussia’s take.
Comics-loving best friends hypnotise their headteacher into becoming a superhero. Splendid animation – based on the Dav Pilkey books – that delivers a barrage of bottom jokes and a touching portrayal of childhood friendship. Recommended.
Employees of a mysterious company are compelled to murder each other. Would-be black comedy better at delivering gloopy kills than in having much to say. Neither funny or subversive enough; it gets tiresome before 90 minutes are up.
