A mother struggles to maintain a better life for her daughter. There were some strong performances but it was extremely cliche. It also was Katie Holmes’ directorial debut. It does not feel honest or real. There’s too much expository dialogue. Skip it.

When an uptight office CEO plans to shut down a branch, a branch manager plans an epic party to hire a big client and save the day. This has a pretty stellar cast with T.J. Miller and Jennifer Anniston but it is very basic. It was a comedy that took itself way too seriously. The film is made for background noise and probably will be played on TV over and over again. Skip the movie it is trash.

In the world of political brokers, Sloan will do whatever it takes to win her spot. The movie is absolutely awful, negative, and muted forever. However, Jessica Chastain was pretty good. Skip it!
