Post Grad

While Post Grad has some meaningful messages (it’s OK if you don’t know what you want to do with your life, the people you love are more important than any career) its delivery is sloppy and clichéd.

Post Grad

If only Post Grad challenged such presumptions and hubris, it might make its rom-com cliches more tolerable.

Shrek (2001)

No longer are epic adventures the province of fair maidens and proud knights. According to 'Shrek', everyone is deserving of fair treatment and true love. Even a dragon and a talking donkey.

Shrek (2001)

hy would anyone want to play a talking donkey? We might suppose that doing voices for an animated movie is less stressful than acting in live-action pictures, that actors are well-compensated, or that doing a movie 'kids can see' is appealing to many movie stars.
