NEW YORK (CNS) — Here are some television program and film notes for the week of Feb. 26 with their TV Parental Guidelines ratings if available. They have not been reviewed and therefore are not necessarily recommended.
NEW YORK (CNS) — We have to inquire: What kinds of audience laughter are the makers of the misbegotten "Fist Fight" (Warner Bros.) going for? Broad guffaws at human frailties? Nope, none of that. Expansive hoots at outrageous physical comedy? Again, not here. That leaves bitter, humorless sneering at various forms of human degradation. If there's a sweet spot for that, this film has found it.
NEW YORK (CNS) — Those seeking nothing more from a movie than sheer spectacle may be satisfied with director Zhang Yimou's visually interesting but thoroughly implausible action adventure "The Great Wall" (Universal).
Epic in scale, the film is shallow in emotion and characterization. On the upside though, its central romance is completely chaste and its dialogue mostly free of cursing.
