Life of the Party

Director: Ben Falcone

Year: 2018     Run Time: 105 min

After her husband abruptly asks for a divorce, a middle-aged mother returns to college in order to complete her degree.

Tim's Review

This was a Melissa McCarthy comedy vehicle. A very funny one at that, and I think she's again proving herself to be sort of the John Belushi of the female gender in terms of outrageousness

Gregg's Review

If the Oscars would get with the modern world and have an award for best comedy this would be a shoo-in

Breaking In

Director: James McTeigue

Year: 2018     Run Time: 88 min

A woman fights to protect her family during a home invasion.

Gregg's Review

This is kind of a horror film about home invasion. It's really quite unpleasant at times, but that's kind of what going to the movies is all about is experiencing different types of things and some of them can't be fun

Tim's Review

Basically a "watch out" story. A "be careful what you wish for" story, I suppose.

Tim did not rate this film

Mystery Men

Director: Kinka Usher

Year: 1999     Run Time: 121 min

A group of inept amateur superheroes must try to save the day when a supervillian threatens to destroy a major superhero and the city.

That's basically a spoof of superhero movies with Hank Azaria and Ben Stiller
