Horrible Bosses 2

BB.5 (out of 5) They caused so much hilarious mayhem the first time around, and the box office receipts came in so nice and high that there was absolutely no way they would avoid doing it again.  The misfit trio of Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis have left their terrible leaders in the dust at … More Horrible Bosses 2

BB.5 (out of 5) One of the most overproduced John Grisham film adaptations is taken from his first book.  It would be far too easy to point out the drawbacks of this dramatic debacle (overly long running time, deceptively simple political issues dressed up as complex themes), so we’ll concentrate on the positive: this was … More A Time To Kill
