    Review: Phil Lord And Chris Miller's '22 Jump Street' Starring Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill & Ice Cube|The Playlist

    But it's still funny and engaging, and the film peaks right at the end with a glorious closing credit sequence that provides some of the biggest laughs in the film, while seemingly blowing up the franchise. Which is almost a shame, because if Lord and Miller can keep up the quality to this degree, we'd happily watch a 'Jump Street' movie every couple of years for the foreseeable future. [B+]
    Watched this over the weekend and enjoyed it thoroughly. Channing Tatum reminds of Mark Wahlberg in that he can be really great in comedies where he has one specific character trait. Fro Tatum, it's being dumb and for Wahlberg it's having a temper problem.

    Review: Sharp And Savage 'They Came Together' Starring Paul Rudd And Amy Poehler|The Playlist

    Yes, spoofing the modern Manhattan rom-com is an exercise in shooting fish in a barrel—and yet Wain and Showalter are aided and abetted by a ludicrously talented cast (all of the above, plus Max Greenfield, Ed Helms, Michael Ian Black, Teyonah Parris and a few choice cameos) that keeps their aim true and the bloodletting brief. A strange, funny mockery of an all-too-familiar weak-as-cold-tea combination of form, feeling and filmmaking that big-studio rom-coms churn off an assembly line, “They Came Together” has a silly, goofy smile and a sharp, savage bite. [B+]

    Review: 'Tammy' Starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon And Mark Duplass|The Playlist

    This could have been a charming, ramshackle road movie about two women who reconnect on the road, actualizing all of the wishful fantasies that have occupied their minds but rarely been actualized in their real lives. But this is not what "Tammy" is. "Tammy" is a movie that is painful, pathetic, and more willing to engage in a joke about getting fingered by Boz Scaggs than anything even remotely introspective. In other words: that was uncomfortable. [D]

    Aren't we done with her yet. I saw about 30 minutes of that stolen identity flick with her and Jason Batemen and, while it was perfectly acceptable and non threatening, that is what is wrong with mainstream comedy in general. We're the Millers too. Perfectly fine, looked like a movie and all, but just sooooo predictable. So generic. So SAFE. It really wouldn't take much to make a comedy that just grabs people...just don't be afraid to offend. It's pretty simple yet all these studios just keep grinding out the same damned 'feel good' crap.

    I like Melissa McCarthy, but she's in serious danger of becoming the next Adam Sandler.

    she should be so lucky. And seriously, I don't blame Sandler for what he has become. When he made Little Nicky(which was bad/good, but at least he was trying something) and it failed miserably, he started pandering to his audience. And they rewarded him by lapping it up. Dude needs to earn, I don't begrudge him that. Why try something edgy when your audience tells you what they want. I feel bad for him because Thrown Ups 3 cannot be what he predicted when he started.

    I don't necessarily have a problem with Sandler, but his movies nowadays are all pretty much the same. Or, at least, he's the same in them.

    And I think McCarthy has already started down that road.

    I think both of them showed a lot of promise earlier in their career and they've both done some great work. There's just no surprises from Sandler anymore.
