Palm Beach Movie Review

This is somewhat off-putting because almost every male in the movie is a jerk. It makes it difficult to connect with any of the players. This is exaggerated by the main character Frank (Bryan Brown) being rich and having a hard to relate to life of privilege. His very posh house high on a hill over looking the water actually plays a more important role than some of the women.   //   Fathers, mothers, sons and daughters gather together at the house to celebrate Frank’s ...

Peter Rabbit Movie Review

With projects like this, being based on exisiting books (and children’s ones at that) it puts added pressure to create a screenplay that will have something to offer all segments of the audience. In this regards the film is very successful and the script is filled with many delightful moments. // It crates a very fun and lighthearted atmosphere and one that delivers its message with a distinct absence of preaching. It also has a number of running gags that just work every time and ...
