Love the Coopers (2015) – Review

In anticipation of a family reunion around the time of Christmas, four generations of the same Cooper clan come together for their usual annual festivities. Upon each making their way to the gathering however, an unfortunate series of events, along with unexpected visitors, turn the night on its head, forcing many of them to revaluate their own life as well as their family bonds. Not the most cheerful and upbeat Christmas film this season, but one that provides a fairly festive and authentic festive feel.

Two people, Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey), despise being single on holidays because it means they are faced with a barrage of heavy and unnecessary judgement from their overbearing families about their relationship status.

The Wrong Missy (2020) – Review

After Tim (David Spade) seemingly meets and then consequently invites the woman of his dreams on a work retreat to the beautiful island of Hawaii, he quickly realises he’s mistakenly sent the invitation to someone else – a previous date who turned out to be nothing short of a nightmare from the get-go. From there on, chaos ensues. Unfortunately, not one of the finest releases from Netflix who seem to be very hit and miss in the comedy genre.

Prince Avalanche (2013) – Review

After a devastating forest fire swept through parts of Texas back in the late 1980’s, two men are hired to repair the scorched and partially destroyed roads. However, as the two begin their work, tensions quickly rise and they begin taking their respective frustrations out on each other. A promising premise with two fine actors taking center stage, but sadly the execution didn’t quite feel right. Watchable at times, but certainly not worthy of a repeat viewing.

A British-based, feel good flick, that isn’t the worst option if you’re hoping to kill some time on a lazy afternoon.
