Review: Stuber

As formulaic, marginally satisfying, and predictable as a bowl of vanilla ice cream with no toppings, the action comedy Stuber manages to deliver some decent chuckles and an appropriate level of shocks when called upon, but it’s also a film that should be far better than it is given the level of talent involved.

Review: ‘The Big Sick,’ starring Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan

The Big Sick could be identified on one level as a combined romantic comedy and family drama that’s just as rousing as its lower aiming, crowd pleasing counterparts, but that would be selling it short. Sure, it’s one of those “boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy doesn’t know what he had till it’s gone” narratives mixed with a story about the trepidation one feels when meeting a significant other’s parents, but there’s a rawness and freshness to The Big Sick that can’t be denied, slighted, or overlooked.
