  • Capsule reviews of feature films

    ALAN PARTRIDGE 2 1/2 stars. Steve Coogan imports his long-running stock comic character to the U.S. Partridge, a small-town British DJ, is a vainglorious twit. In this thin feature he gets caught up in a siege at his station that goes on far, far too...

  • 'A Long Way Down' finds heart and humor in people ready to end it all

    Oh yes, as the song goes, "life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone." That's the sentiment at the heart of "A Long Way Down," a suicide dramedy based on that pop music-loving British novelist Nick Hornby's book. That isn't one of the...

    'Tammy' not much fun, and talented Melissa McCarthy needs to wise up
    Oh, "Tammy." Can I call you Tammy? I hate to break it to you, but the thrill is gone. I'd like to say it's me, not you. But I really think it's you. As the latest, loudest, R-rated, plus-size incarnation of Melissa McCarthy's comic psyche, you had...
  • 'Tammy' Laughs Its Way to $1.3 Mil at Tuesday Box Office

    "Tammy" laughed its way to $1.3 million at the Tuesday night box office. New Line, the studio behind the R-rated comedy, is betting that Melissa McCarthy's star power can outshine the battling robots from "Transformers: Age of Extinction" at the Fourth...
  • Film Review: 'Tammy'

    A well-meaning personal project that never rises above the level of amiable mediocrity, "Tammy" feels like the kind of picture that can happen only when a major talent -- here, the unsinkable Melissa McCarthy, who wrote the script with her husband and...
