Excerpt: We’re now three movies into director Garry Marshall’s holiday-inspired rom-com experiment, a cinematic endeavor that officially launched in 2010 with Valentine’s Day , then extended a year later with New Year’s Eve .
Excerpt: For most people, Troma Entertainment is synonymous with The Toxic Avenger and Lloyd Kaufman. For nearly 40 years, Lloyd has led the fight for reel independence. Troma movies are not for everybody but their fans are among the most devoted and loyal in the world.
Conclusion: Mother's Day is a pretty repulsive movie, but therein lies its effectiveness. It succeeds at making the audience despise its characters, their actions, and the environment in which they exist.
Excerpt: After a violent robbery went sour, Ike Koffin and his two brothers Johnny and Addley head back to their mother’s home for refuge. Once arrived, they find out their mother recently lost the house and it’s now occupied by Beth and Daniel Sohapi who were having a housewarming party with some friends...
Conclusion: Mother’s Day is an extremely brutal film, but it’s an entertaining one. I don’t really know why it was shelved for so long, because it has all the makings of an instant contemporary cult-classic in its own right.
Summary: Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama, grisly pic centers around a yuppie couple whose suburban home is invaded by the severely dysfunctional family that recently lived there.
Excerpt: Ännu en amerikansk romantisk komedi som inte lyckas vara varken särskilt rolig eller romantisk. Stora namn som Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis och Kate Hudson är ändå värda att se, men annars finns inte mycket att hurra för i denna film om moderskapets våndor och fördelar.
