Some sharp moments, but on the whole a little flat. The story is more off key than the usual efforts, but it’s a melody you’ll be all too familiar with.
A mild-mannered accountant teams up with a spy on the eve of their school reunion. Patchy action comedy, veering between sentimentality, shoot-em-up scenes, and improvised moments.
The CIA try to hire Stanley Kubrick to fake the Apollo 11 moon landing. Weak-sauce low budget farce with a shaky grasp of space history, though with some game playing in service of a duff script and an old idea.
Subtle yet clever mockumentary from Christoper Guest. Some memorable characters adlib their way through some awkward scenes and situations at a Mascot competition. Your sides wont split, but you’ll certainly be laughing! Worth a watch 🙂
A loser private eye and a professional hard man team up to find a missing girl. Splendid 70s-set comedy-thriller with bags of confidence, great performances, and a zippy script. A solid job all round.
Snowboarders fend off zombies in a ski-lodge. Terrible title, weak jokes, and duff acting aside, this is a tatty-but-endearing one-joke movie which foregrounds gory slapstick and the occasional genuinely inventive visual over logic or story. Passable.
The younger brother of a noble prince is a reluctant quest participant. Handsomely-mounted stoner fantasy romp, with a good cast struggling to make the most of a weak script. A handful of funny moments if you’re feeling indulgent, but that’s about it.
