While the rest of the world gets Detective Pikachu this week, we have to make do with a bunch of films that are okay at best.


The Hustle

Age Restriction: 13 L V S

Female scam artists (Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson), one low rent and the other high class, team up to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them.

Even with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as con artists, the setups are flat, the jokes don’t land and the actors strain for laughs that never come.  The Hustle’s stars might make an effective comedy team in a different setting, but this gender-flipped remake of a remake is pretty much pointless.

Rotten Tomatoes: 15% (Rotten)
Metacritic: 36 (Generally Unfavourable Reviews)


The Intruder

Age Restriction: 13 V S

When a young married couple (Michael Ealy and Meagan Good) buys their dream house in the Napa Valley, they think they have found the perfect home to take their next steps as a family. But when the strangely attached seller (Dennis Quaid) continues to infiltrate their lives, they begin to suspect that he has hidden motivations beyond a quick sale.

The Intruder might appeal to fans of shout-at-the-screen cinema, but the ludicrous plot robs it of suspense and undermines Dennis Quaid’s suitably over-the-top performance.

Rotten Tomatoes: 28% (Rotten)
Metacritic: 38 (Generally Unfavourable Reviews)


Poms

Age Restriction: TBA

Martha (Diane Keaton) moves into a retirement community and starts a cheerleading squad with her fellow residents, Sheryl (Jacki Weaver), Olive (Pam Grier) and Alice (Rhea Perlman), proving that it’s never too late to follow your dreams.

Despite the heavy-weight cast of Diane Keaton, Jackie Weaver, Pam Grier, Celia Weston, Rhea Perlman – to name a few, Poms wastes this talent on a sitcom level clichéd comedy that disrespects the demographic it’s trying to celebrate. 

Rotten Tomatoes: 26% (Rotten)
Metacritic: 35 (Generally Unfavourable Reviews)
