Movie Reviewer

Patrick "Barney" Sullivan is a divorced father of one beautiful girl who he drags to the movies whenever he can, searching for the perfect family flick.

If you end up loving one of the films he points you too, be sure to let him know. It’s a thrill for him as he desperately needs validation.

My mom took my daughter to see The Nutcracker once as a ballet in Western Florida. I'm glad I got out of that as I had seen it in Grade 3 when I used to live in Winnipeg. I can still remember how bored I was, not having yet learned that you can just sleep through things if you want to. So I thought that if I proactively take Emily to see this movie, I might be able to dodge having to see the ballet if it rolls into town again. In the end, I think...

Not very good. I probably should not have seen this so soon after House with the Clock in the Walls. Mercifully, Jack Black isn't in this one much, and he's actually decent this time around. I actually had more trouble buying Madison Iseman as a high-school student when she clearly looks 20, but this isn't a new problem for movies trying to cast high-school students. It's just a tough sell after seeing Eighth Grade not too long ago. The rest of the cast is fine. I took my 7-yr old girl to this...

Not exactly the best title, but I guess they have to honour the book. I would have gone with, "Jack Black Finds Work Again."

Worth skipping! A janky animation mess that is passable for kids but has nothing to offer adults.

Somewhat disjointed but still with enough special moments to be passable. This movie was a bit all over the place. Things really slow down in the 100-Acre Wood, which I didn't realize was supposed to be such a dreary place. The whole middle of the movie grinds to a bit of a halt but things pick up strongly in the final acts to make the experience worth it. It really does best when it just lets Pooh be Pooh. He's captured really well in this live-action...

Super warm and honest look at life for a modern eighth grader.

I fell asleep but the songs are quite fun and really help lift this movie.
