    Constant sequences of drug taking, one after the other, does not a good film make. ( Read More )
  • Mr Brown Movies

    Comes off as manufactured and synthetic as most Hollywood product. ( Read More )

  • The movie gets credit for not making the high life seem colorful or funny. ( Read More )
