Going in Style (2017) – Review

Riddled with money woes, three lifelong friends risk it all by undertaking the daring task of stealing cash from the very same bank that absconded their pension funds after grafting for over thirty years. There is a problem however, none of trio have experience in breaking the law or even handling a gun, let alone stealing millions from a bank in broad daylight. An easy to watch and light-hearted comedy with an outstanding cast that is currently streaming on Netflix.

The Wrong Missy (2020) – Review

After Tim (David Spade) seemingly meets and then consequently invites the woman of his dreams on a work retreat to the beautiful island of Hawaii, he quickly realises he’s mistakenly sent the invitation to someone else – a previous date who turned out to be nothing short of a nightmare from the get-go. From there on, chaos ensues. Unfortunately, not one of the finest releases from Netflix who seem to be very hit and miss in the comedy genre.

Prince Avalanche (2013) – Review

After a devastating forest fire swept through parts of Texas back in the late 1980’s, two men are hired to repair the scorched and partially destroyed roads. However, as the two begin their work, tensions quickly rise and they begin taking their respective frustrations out on each other. A promising premise with two fine actors taking center stage, but sadly the execution didn’t quite feel right. Watchable at times, but certainly not worthy of a repeat viewing.

Man Up (2015) – Review

When Nancy (Lake Bell) – a thirty-something year old woman exhausted by the endless amount of unsuccessful dates that have been thrown her way – decides to finally take things into her own hands, she ends up taking the place of a stranger’s scheduled blind date and ultimately meets a man that ends up changing her outlook on the dating world. A British-based, feel good flick, that isn’t the worst option if you’re hoping to kill some time on a lazy afternoon.

Love. Wedding. Repeat (2020) – Review

When a group of friends find themselves at a beautiful, picturesque wedding in Rome, the bride’s brother, Jack (Sam Claflin), must ensure his sister’s big day goes as smoothly as planned after an angry and seemingly destructive ex-boyfriend arrives to cause chaos. He must do this while trying to juggle other troubling events that pop up too, while also attempting to find his happy ever after. A half decent production with a fairly unique premise, but probably not a movie that many will remember months from now.

Blockers (2018) – Review

When three doting parents unearth a plot that their daughters have conjured together to lose their virginity on prom night, the trio do all they can to prevent them from making, in their minds, the biggest mistake of their young lives. An at times really funny and heart-warming coming of age story that adds no shame to the comedy genre. Blockers is currently streaming on Netflix.

Murder Mystery (2019) – Review

Nick Spitz (Adam Sandler) is a New York cop that takes his wife Audrey Spitz (Jennifer Aniston) on a long awaited European trip in an attempt to reinvigorate their relatively stale marriage but instead, the pair end up tangled in the middle of a murder case after witnessing the death of an elderly billionaire. A solid Adam Sandler comedy flick that contained 2 or 3 genuine laugh out loud moments but probably isn’t something you’ll be watching again anytime soon.

The House (2017) – Review

When a town scholarship program no longer has funding, parents Scott (Will Ferrell) and Kate (Amy Poehler) are left without the necessary cash available to send their daughter to University. Facing very few options, they decide to open and begin running an illegal casino in an attempt to make the cash before the summer ends. An entertaining Netflix time killer that never had a dull moment, with some extremely brutal moments thrown in that made you want to look away on more than one occasion.
