Alex r (au) wrote: My Dog Skip is a very good family drama. The film is quite simple, but manages to be very good. The cast do a fine job here, and lead actor Frankie Muniz is very good compared to his other film roles. This is a well acted film, one that is sure to appeal to the entire family. This film has charm, a well written story and a good dose of comedy into its drama, which makes it a memorable film. The film is nothing new, but it works well enough to be fun, dramatic, sad and entertaining. What makes this film worth watching is the performances of its cast, and the witty script which make the film much better even with a not so brand new plot. This is the type of film we've seen many times before, however it still manages in being a must see film due to a good script. This is also a well directed film, and it's one terrific film that is sure to please anyone of all ages. This is among the best family films in the last fifteen years, and it has something for everyone. The film is a must see if you're looking for the perfect family film, and it has everything you'd expect from a good family oriented drama comedy. The film is not perfect, but it still has enough going for it to make it worth watching. With a good cast, a good story and good directing, My Dog Skip is a wonderful film. This is one of those rare family films that is actually something that anyone of any age groups will surely enjoy. The film is not cheesy and is always fun, dramatic and sad.

But sometimes, I don't find his sense of humor funny and I also don't have patience for unlikable characters with no arc either. Laura Dern is terrific and absolutely despicable as Ruth Stoops, and I admire the film's courage to tackle on such a sensitive subject matter. My problem with the film is more of a personal one, and that is this: I don't like movies that revolve around a character with no redeeming qualities. Citizen Ruth is smart and thought-provoking, but doesn't have much emotional resonance in the end.

Taylor H (es) wrote: Paul Blart: Mall Cop is a comedy written by Steve Carr in 2009 about an everyday single father who is struggling to raise his daughter. This unlikely hero takes extreme measures to show that this mall is focused on the safety of its customers. Though very few workers at this mall are actually worried with their careers, Paul Blart continues to identify himself as a serious security guard. When the mall is taken over by a seemingly harmless colleague of his and a group of his colleague's helpers, Paul Blart quickly jumps into action. The moment he realizes that his once endearing colleague has taken his daughter and potential girlfriend hostage, Blart begins to show that he is the hero that he always believed he could be.. This comedy is intended to give the audience a laugh to remember. Similar to his previous movies, like Pitch Perfect, Steve Carr continuously creates jokes that revolve around Blart's weight and the fact that he needs sugar almost every hour. Apart from the insulting jokes, there is the question about language. Fortunately, parents are able to relax because the language is simply mild. There is only one curse word throughout the entire set; however, the movie does also use God's name in vain. These sets of words are used during one of the few violent scenes. These violent scenes go as far as using stuffed animals to hit, guns in hopes of shooting, and threats to scare the main characters into backing down. In addition to violent scenes, there are only a few scenes involving sexuality. During these suggestive scenes, Paul Blart is seen kissing his new girlfriend after saving her life for only a couple seconds, Blart is also briefly seen making googly eyes at the girl he finds beautiful, and one other scene that is slightly longer includes two girls fighting inside of a Victoria's Secret store. The fight within Victoria Secret does include a brief peek at one of the lady's involved in the fights bra, but nothing more is shown. Through all of the random scenes in Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Carr manages to convey the idea of never doubting yourself. Every character within this movie sees Blart as the odd man out until the day he saves the mall and gets the girl of his dreams. While viewing this movie myself I had quite a few laughs, but never truly appreciated the movie until I found the value of the message. Usually movies are less dramatic in selling the message to you, but the presentation was quite entertaining in the end. Overall, I would definitely recommend this movie for a family night in with the children, but not as a date night movie. I hope that everyone takes the same amount of laughs away as I did, and just remember to have a completely open mind while viewing this comedic movie.
