Men in Black III

Gets three thumbs up from Sue, Jack & Jim. III was funnier than the first II in the series, and that's what I really care about. Goofy movies should make us laugh—even if they are hyper-expensive and scare the hell out of the studios paying the bills.

The Dictator

Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen goes a weenie, weenie bit Hollywood. The movie isn't as good, or as funny, as the trailer.

What to Expect When You're Expecting

Some funny scenes, but not much storyline to move the set pieces forward, and nobody to care much about. The producers did a great job attaching talent—they just forgot to attach a script.

Battleship

Spoiler alert. Blow stuff up. Dialog to explain the inexplicable. Blow more stuff up. Dialog to make us care about the human race and those who will soon perish trying to defend it. Blow stuff up, blow stuff up, blow up very bad aliens. Confession: I haven't actually seen it yet. How'd I do?

Review #2:
For years some knuckleheads have criticized my books without actually reading them. I'm afraid I've done the same thing with Battleship—although I was mostly making a joke. I've actually now seen the movie. I'll stick with my first review—but I must add that I enjoyed Battleship more than The Avengers.
