Do you have to be high in order to laugh here? No, but for a whole lot of this movie it sure feels that way. It’s really too bad MacFarlane relies so much on the weed breaks he slots so often in this movie. Not only do they slow the fun, they feel repetitive and lazy. And, as we have seen in so much of his work, when MacFarlane tries, he really can deliver some very funny and, as is his signature, topically targeted stuff.
There’s no real way to prepare yourself for the flat out marvel of Inside Out, the Pixar release that not only revives the studio’s legacy, but the whole concept of family entertainment. Yes, this gorgeously animated story is based on the lives of the innermost emotions of an 11 year old girl, but its keen perceptions, astonishing concept and goofy humor make this a movie that will dazzle viewers of any age.
Proving it’s not just looks, but heart, the effectively packaged but very uneven entertainment delivers a few things that are just darn irresistible. There is certainly a whole lot of dry humping, which stands in for choreography. But even if watching that isn’t your cup of tea, you will undoubtedly enjoy the real charm all the guys bring, especially Channing Tatum whose always watchable and slyly eloquent work makes this Mike magical indeed.
Claire Gem is an Award Winning Author of Contemporary Romance with a Ghostly Twist
Claire Gem writes for her life. An avid fan of romance and a good ghost story (not necessarily together or in that order), her favorite authors include Robyn Carr, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kristan Higgins, Susanna Kearsley (congratulations to Susanna on her RITA win with Firebird), Susan Mallery, and Simone St. James. Her idea of a great love story is one that transports you to another place and time, and introduces you to new people so real, you miss them when you read The End.
Listen, there's dinosaurs, John Williams music and Star Lord. It'll either be good summer time fun, or a big heaping pile of dino droppings all over the magic that was the original.

According to the tagline, "The Park is Open"... tune in Sunday, June 14 at 1:30 PM PST to find out whether or not we think it's worth a visit.
Don’t sweat it if you’re running a little late for the screening you bought tickets for. Not much happens in this chapter’s first hour or so. And then all hell breaks loose, delivering exactly what you bought those tickets to see.
Boys will be boys. You were expecting Shakespeare, maybe? Melissa McCarthy in the role she and we have been waiting for.
