Despicable Me 2 (2013)
Three years ago, an animated film about a villain whose life changes when he adopts three children as part of his evil plan, popped up out of nowhere. Today, the sequel to Despicable Me is all children (and a large number of adults) are talking about and it’s easy to see why. Despicable Me 2 […]

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)
I laughed when I first saw the trailer for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. I laughed more than once and I knew that I would see it as soon as I could. Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) is a famous stage magician, who has worked for a number of years as a headline act in Las Vegas […]

The devil who wore Prada and the man in Black go for marriage counselling in the romantic comedy Hope Springs. Steve Carrell plays it straight as the relationship ‘guru’ trying to reconcile prudish housewife Kay (Meryl Streep) and grumpy old Arnold’s (Tommy Lee Jones) 31 year old marriage....

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)
You could be forgiven for assuming that Steve Carrell has a somewhat successful career, 40 Year Old Virgin was a break out performance and he has proved his acting chops in Little Miss Sunshine.  But take a look again through his filmography; Get Smart was a particularly bad career choice, Dinner for...

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
A romantic comedy with a nice, off-kilter take on the whole situation, this movie should please a lot of people as much as it pleased me. It’s not for everyone however – some folks claimed it was misogynistic nonsense while others claimed it had a new overcoat but was still the same old wardrobe....

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
Very often, the romantic comedy survives on formula and inevitability. Not that that necessarily makes it less successful – it’s worked well for many a good movie. Nonetheless, it’s admirable to see Crazy, Stupid, Love trying something more ambitious with the genre. Rather than the...

Steve Carell and Tina Fey star in this comedy all about a normal, married couple who find themselves being pursued by dangerous men with guns, all because they pretended to be someone else so that they could get a table in a busy, trendy restaurant.

Bruce Almighty (2003)

Bruce Almighty (2003)
Is Bruce Almighty the best Jim Carrey film ever? I’ll answer that with a resounding no. The manic comic has been responsible for some of the funniest films of the last 20 years (Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Liar Liar), and has handed in some of the sharpest dramatic turns of any recent Hollywood superstar...
