Rotten Tomatoes Score: 78% critics, 84% audience

Gratuitous Review Quotes:

“Who needs one traditional fairy tale when a spin-off of a send-up bearing its own genre influences – Puss, Kitty and Humpty as the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, reimagined as the Noble, the Suave and the Misguided – will do?” – William Goss, Film.com

“The lively romp is well-acted, cleverly written and vividly rendered, despite an over-the-top finale. Even the 3-D elements dazzle during swooping chases.” – Claudia Puig, USA Today

Armchair Analysis: I’m against anything that glorifies cats. They’re vile, selfish animals with no regard for loyalty or companionship. If I wanted a movie about animals in silly action sequences, I would remake The Last Starfighter with an all-dog cast and call it The Last Starbiter. I’m going to start working on the screenplay right now. See you all at Cannes!

Vince says: Isn’t it amazing that Pete Hammond got to see it before anyone else, AND they quote him three times in the commercial? What a coincidence!

In Time

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 36% critics, 74% audience because everyone loves Justin Timberlake no matter how ridiculous the premise

Gratuitous Review Quotes:

“This futuristic thriller — ‘Logan’s Run’ meets ‘All the President’s Men’ starring Patty Hearst, written as a brainless rejoinder to Joe the Plumber — strikes me as kindergarten Karl Marx, but then what was Karl but a 5-year-old with an expansive vocabulary? It took him 600 pages to say: You have more stuff than me. Gimme some.” – Kyle Smith, New York Post (this guy totally farts in his Prius to enjoy the smell)
