Movie Review – “Grown Ups 2”

Love him or hate him, Adam Sandler has come a long way from his small part on The Cosby Show as Theo’s friend. He has gone on to make massive hits as well as movies that seemed that they were made just to be made. But as hard as it is to believe, Grown Ups 2 is the first sequel he’s been involved with for any of his movies and one that shows that Sandler cares about the characters.

The movie is a look into a day of the lives of these friends as they are preparing for the Summer with the last day of school for the kids. It’s a non-stop look as the families grow along with friendships that bridge between generations of family. So how did it fare? You know the drill….

Movie Review – “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”

I saw a great magic trick the other night.  This trick was one that was skilled in the art of distraction, illusion, and even slight of hand. This trick had a few laughs but there were no moments of amazement or wonderment. And this trick was called  The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.  Director Don Scardino manages to take a movie that had some potential and allow it to become a not-so-funny comedy. Don’t get me wrong in that there are some funny moments and even a few that weren’t shown in the trailers and previews. But overall The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a move that just falls flat in trying to do too much with what it has and not enough with what it should have been.
