’America’: Dinesh D’Souza’s revisionist history

It takes 90 minutes for Dinesh D'Souza's rambling, mistitled "America: Imagine the World Without Her" to get to its real point. There's D'Souza, arch-conservative Ivy League immigrant, creator of the popular anti-Obama screed "2016: Obama's America," in handcuffs.

Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’ is out of tune

Whatever charms turned the musical “Jersey Boys” into a Tony-winning Broadway hit are sorely missed in Clint Eastwood’s tone-deaf corpse of a movie. Late to the game, blandly cast and scripted with every Italian-American cliche, it is Eastwood’s worst film as a director.

The fault in ‘Our Stars’ is more in the script

Shailene Woodley, who can do no acting wrong, brings a welcome reality to "The Fault in Our Stars," a perfectly serviceable teen date picture that teenage girls will have to bribe teenage boys to sit through.

Tom Cruise stuck on ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

In this year’s annual Tom Cruise sci-fi epic, he plays a future soldier condemned to repeat the same botched D-Day invasion until he triumphs against the alien beasties who keep killing him and forcing him to start this waking nightmare again.

Million Dollar Arm’ runs the bases

"Million Dollar Arm" is a baseball movie that pulls off a smooth triple play. It's a character-based comedy drama that's also a smart film about the business of sports. As if it weren't difficult enough to work that double angle, there's also an exotic international focus. The story focuses on immigrant players struggling with social disorientation and homesickness, an underreported aspect of the game that has caused many a gifted recruit to fail. And by the way, it's all based on a true story.

Godzilla’: Too many people, not enough monsters

The "Godzilla" reboot perfectly illustrates the problem that has long haunted mediocre monster movies. When the big, scaly guys are on screen, it's a fun thrill ride. But when the humans are at the center of the action, things get scary — and not in a good way.

‘Neighbors’ has an ‘Animal House’-sized ‘Hangover’

“Neighbors” is an “Animal House” for “The Hangover” era, a frat-boy comedy that pushes the rude and raunchy envelope into daring and dirty new territory. Hilariously coarse, reasonably shrewd and clumsily sentimental, there’s no reason it won’t earn a billion and inspire a whole new generation of party-hearty “bros” to go Greek when they go to college.

Rio 2’ piles it on and spoils the fun

With "Rio 2," the creators of "Rio" give us more of everything that their first film had in just the right doses. But if this sequel proves anything, it's that more is not always better.
