  • A generally entertaining but half-baked variation on Richard Linklater’s high school period piece, “Dazed and Confused” (made in 1993, set in 1976), Remember the Daze (set in 1999) takes its cue from the earlier film in an excess of ways. show more

  • The original title of Jess Manafort's directorial debut was "The Beautiful Ordinary," and she shouldn't have changed it. After all, her cast is beautiful and her movie is ordinary. show more

  • We keep waiting for a story, or at least some comedy, but none ever materializes. The dialogue makes Algebra II seem fascinating by comparison. show more
