Movie Reviews from the Critical Couple

Movie Reviews from the Critical Couple

Watching movies may be one of America's most popular date-night activities, but it can also be one of the most contentious. That's where critics and real-life couple Roy and Adriane step in, putting their relationship on the line so you don't have to. They tap into an encyclopedic film knowledge rather than stereotypes—he likes rom-coms, she likes Road House—to guide other movie-going partners to the best selections Hollywood has to offer.

RATINGS: ★: Awful | ★★: Mediocre | ★★★: Good | ★★★★: Excellent

Lucy | ★★★

Ambitious, silly, and never dull, ''Lucy'' keeps that 10% of your brain entertained throughout.

Transformers: Age of Extinction | ★ 1/2

Another shameful entry in Michael Bay’s oeuvre.

22 Jump Street | ★★★ 1/2

Did you like the first one? Okay, you'll like the sequel.

A Million Ways to Die in the West | ★ 1/2

''A Million Ways to Die in the West''? More like ''Lazing Saddles.''

Godzilla | ★★★ 1/2

The best movie about a 350-foot-tall lizard you’re likely to see all year.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 | ★★★

Explosions, one-liners, and a silly montage set to emo music: what's not to love?

Transcendence | ★★ 1/2

A stylish film that tries commenting on society’s relationship with technology but gets bogged down with too many unlikeable characters.
