CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Good fun movie with a decent screenplay.
2) “Anywair” sounds very interesting.
3) Jillian Bell as Trina – this terribly under-rated actress needs a full-length movie in the lead role. I’d even love to watch a spin-off movie featuring Trina as the central character.
4) Fortune Feimster as Lonny, the Uber Driver.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

Airline Concierge: I’m sorry, ma’am. All flights are grounded until the snow clears. There’s nothing more I can do.
Carol Vanstone: Well, refer me to someone who can do something!
Airline Concierge: That would be God, ma’am.
Carol Vanstone: Oh. Her.

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) A pleasant surprise to see Christopher Walken as Feng.

 

 

CONS –
1) A promising plot suffering from a weak screenplay and poor writing. Except for the dead/fake panda joke, there is not a single good joke.
2) Dan Fogler playing a role tailor-made for Jonah Hill, Jack Black or someone from Team Apatow.

VERDICT – 4/5

 

PROS –
1) Will Ferrell as “Chazz” Michael Michaels. He took the character of an over-confident self-obsessed skater to another level.
2) A side-splitting comedy movie, full of memorable jokes and characters.
3) Great skating choreography.
4) The whalebone comb called Verticoli. The intensity by which Will Ferrell describes it, explains the caliber of this actor.

 

CONS –
N/A

Chazz: Hey. They laughed at Louis Armstrong when he said he was gonna go to the moon. Now he’s up there, laughing at them.
