When Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy) drops in on Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) totally unannounced in the revival of David Hare's 1995 play Skylight, at Wyndham's, he's clearly there to fan the embers of a six-year affair that ended two years earlier.

Common threads of a romantic movie a man will watch: The screenplay is written by men, the film is told from the man's perspective and the male lead behaves like a man would in real life and the ending of the film is redemptive.

ReThink Review: About Time -- How to Make Time Travel Boring

Jonathan Kim | Posted 01.23.2014 | Entertainment
Jonathan Kim

About Time is a romantic comedy -- a genre I feel is fading in quality and relevance as repetition, the modern realities of relationships, and the myth of couples living "happily ever after" have exposed the shallowness of the genre's clichés.

This Romantic Comedy Is Not A Romantic Comedy

HuffingtonPost.com | Christopher Rosen | Posted 01.23.2014 | Entertainment

"About Time," Richard Curtis' new time-travel romance, isn't a perfect time-travel movie. Just ask Richard Curtis. "I'm sure it's not flawless. I k...

I heard a lot of critics sniff at the inclusion of Richard Curtis' About Time in this year's New York Film Festival. The same cadre, no doubt, uses Curtis' Love, Actually as an example of what's wrong with romantic comedy.

I'd give this year's festival a passing grade, just in terms of featuring movies that neither challenge you to make sense of them nor to stay awake.

Director Bryan Singer delivered an exciting and entertaining movie with good performances, despite the fact that no one was calling for Jack and the Beanstalk -- or really any fairy tale, for that matter -- to be made into a movie.

Once again, America has taken a look at the latest revisionist fairy tale and sighed a collective, "Why?" Jack the Giant Slayer flopped at the box-office in its opening weekend, despite a mammoth budget and attractive leads.

The success of the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel may yet prove to be the watershed moment when the movie industry gets the message that ignoring people over 60 is a profound marketing mistake, not only for the film business but for "everything."

The greatest risk of a movie like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel would be the one-dimensional fetishizing of the country, where India is held up as a magical bazaar. Thankfully, the movie doesn't do that.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the kind of movie they seldom make anymore -- except in England. When they try to do it in America, you wind up with something like Garry Marshall's New Year's Eve -- or worse.
