LABOR DAY (Jason Reitman, 2013)


We have a lot of sad and bored housewives in movies. This one fell for a convict in Madison County.

KILLING SEASON (Mark Steven Johnson, 2013)


It was hard to take Killing Season seriously when John Travolta spoke with the most absurd accent since Madonna realized she was British.

Oh, so this was some kind of torture porn like Hostel. His Serbian accent should have tipped me off. Ugh!

THE SMURFS 2 (Raja Gosnell, 2013)


You and your kids deserve so much better than this.

Smurfs 2 was so excruciating to watch. It was a bottom of the barrel kids’ movie. I felt sorry for Neil Patrick Harris.

The best part was Britney Spears’ Ooh La La that signaled the end of the film. Blue has never been this nauseating.
