Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 42%
Critic Consensus: “Its exuberant silliness is almost enough to make up for its utter inconsequentiality, but Rock of Ages is ultimately too bland and overlong to justify its trip to the big screen”
That’s My Boy

Directed by: Sean Anders, John Morris

RT Freshness: 20%
Critic Consensus: “While it does represent a new foray into raunch for the normally PG-13 Sandler, That’s My Boy finds him repeating himself to diminishing effect – and dragging Andy Samberg down with him”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
