He’s a big city banker and she’s a… big city dance instructor. Small towns are great and big cities are stupid, but when these two dance, the sparks will fly in the Hallmark Channel’s COME DANCE WITH ME. Wait, is he doing an English accent now? WTF is going on? Holy Potato Balls, is he still doing it?
So… yeah.

Watch the trailer if you will, but be it known that is an AWFUL representation of What If and the complex issues it represents. Or, this ain’t yo mama’s RomCom. Read the rest of this entry
It’s Anna Faris (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and the Captain himself, Chris Evans, together, in a comedy! That sounds promising! And yet, despite its somewhat unique premise, What’s Your Number? is a by the numbers twenty first century romantic comedy. (You see what I did there?) Read the rest of this entry
