Ben Affleck, Kevin James and a Shih Tzu are all ready to take on the box office this weekend. Here’s a roundup of our weekend movie reviews:
Argo: Director/star Ben Affleck’s movie about the 1979 Iran hostage crisis is “an awfully well-made, thoroughly enjoyable film,” says Tom Long. Read his full review here.
Here Comes the Boom: Kevin James is a teacher-turned-MMA-fighter in this derivative slab of ham from the Happy Madison production line. Adam Graham’s review is here.
Seven Psychopaths: A little crazy goes a long way — well, too far — in writer/director Martin McDonagh’s follow-up to “In Bruges.” Tom Long gives it a C.
The Well Digger’s Daughter: At the DFT, this French film from star/ writer/ director Daniel Auteuil is like a light lunch with an old friend whom it’s good to see again, writes Tom Long.
