Despicable Me 3 is a tired, stale, scattershot mess of a film that I’d be more forgiving of if, like the other entries in this series, it were actually funny.
Very smart about being very dumb, Sausage Party expertly mixes low-brow shock humour and puns with high-brow deconstructions of the default CG Animation template and a nuanced discussion about faith and religion.
Though not without issues, Ghostbusters is most likely going to be 2016’s funniest comedy, and it more than stands its ground to the ’84 original.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is neither funny, moving, nor interesting. Instead, it’s just a giant, disappointing failure.
It’s way too long, haphazardly plotted and teases on being more than a joke machine without really following-through, but I laughed more at Anchorman 2 than almost any other comedy this year.
What it lacks in originality and memorability, Despicable Me 2 more than makes up for in excellent animation, hilarious physical comedy, great performances and a surprising amount of heart.
