Based on the best selling autobiography by Irish expat Frank McCourt, Angela's Ashes follows the experiences of young Frankie and his family as they try against all odds to escape the poverty endemic in the slums of pre-war Limerick. The film opens with the family in Brooklyn, but following the death of one of Frankie's siblings, they return home, only to find the situation there even worse. Prejudice against Frankie's Northern Irish father makes his search for employment in the Republic difficult despite his having fought for the IRA, and when he does find money, he spends the money on drink.

Tu Bhaag Milkha! :DThe movie's first race in which Milkha Singh triumphs was against a Pakistani and the story ends with the same cliche! Except for that and many other reasons (too many dance numbers, sonam kapoor, etc) the movie was a nice watch. Farhan's hard work and Pawan Malhotra's delighful performance saves the day.Little over hyped and extremely long!

You can probably enjoy it the one time but if you analyse it the villains are incredibly incompetent (when you consider that an overweight security guard took out all of them). It is also very predictable because of how the movie follows the plot of Die Hard very closely, (you'll understand what I mean if you've seen Die Hard 1 and 2). I found the movie very boring up until the part where the mall gets taken over. Then I found it harmlessly silly and very fun, I liked Kevin James in this along with most of the cast. A decent one time watch.

Joe P (it) wrote: Not sure one could label this movie a comedy, though I was amused by the antics of the principle character. I thought Raunch carried that character's personality perfectly. Would I recommend this to a friend: absolutely, but only if he/she were pretty broad-minded. One thing about the 'Tomatometer' (Critic's evaluations), you can discount it completely. These guys couldn't possibly make a living in any other venue, they're so out of touch with the audience. If you don't like crude and lewd or you're a prude, don't watch this movie. If you appreciate a bit of shock value, enjoy.
