Tim's Review

This is almost like a Ferris Bueller's Day Off, let's see how much we can cram into a movie in terms of 24 hours

5 Bags of Popcorn

Gregg's Review

I think it's interesting that you'd cast Ice Cube in a movie this hot, because you have to worry about him melting on the set

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Tray of Ice

The Nut Job

Gregg's Review

If you'd seen the movie, you'd know that it's an animated film about a squirrel.

Gregg did not rate this film

Tim's Review

When I hear the voice of Katherine Heigl and Brandon Frasier it does remind me of who they are so maybe I was just daydreaming during the movie a little bit imagining those two together, romantically.
