You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah–starring Adam Sandler and the rest of the Sandler family–is unapologetically Jewish. Adam Sandler films can be family affairs but usually he’s starring in the films while wife Jackie and daughters Sadie and Sunny make cameo appearances. This time around, Jackie has a minor role while Sadie and Sunny are front and center. Let me tell you, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Have…"You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah is Unapologetically Jewish"
Disenchanted, the long-overdue sequel to Disney’s 2007 hit film Enchanted, is finally making its arrival for audiences to watch on Disney+. I love Enchanted but I’m not quite sure that I’m at the same level for Disenchanted. Where the first film sees Disney go meta by doing a hybrid animated/live-action Disney Princess movie, the sequel does the same for villains. The fact that this film sees Amy Adams’ Giselle becoming the wicked stepmother is something…"Disenchanted: Enchanted Sequel Falls Short"
Writer-director Kay Cannon makes movie magic once again with one of the most original takes on Cinderella to hit the big or small screen. Cannon’s take is one that truly subverts everything we know about the fairy tale. Not even Walt Disney would have been able to come up with a take such as this. What Cannon does here is bold and unique. Granted, there wasn’t much of a push for diversity on screen when…"Cinderella: Kay Cannon Makes Movie Magic Again"

Saturday Night Live veteran comedian Adam Sandler delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in recently premiered crime thriller Uncut Gems. Every now and then, we get a phenomenal performance from Adam Sandler. Punch-Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, Funny People, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), and Uncut Gems feature such performances. We get a career-best in the film. It helps that he’s able to get out of his comfort zone. He’s not in a film being written…"Toronto 2019: Uncut Gems"
Mixing animation and live-action storytelling, Disney’s Enchanted is a fun homage to all the Walt Disney Animation Studios classics. We start out in the magical land of Andalasia. This land could be a stand-in for every land ever introduced in a Disney film. This goes without saying. It’s here where the evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) will do whatever it takes to keep her throne with the aid of loyal henchman Nathaniel (Timothy Spall). In true Disney…"Enchanted: A Disney Classic"
