‘Thunder Force’ Review: Yes, Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone Made Another Bad Movie

Imagine a world much like our own, but with one key difference: nearly 40 years ago, after an interplanetary blast of cosmic rays, some people were gifted with superpowers. There’s just one nefarious twist: the only people who gained these powers were likely to be sociopaths. So, in essence, what if, 40 years ago, supervillains were created but without an opposing force of good to stop them? How would these cruel villains run rampant over the societies of the world? What nasty plans would they...

Melissa McCarthy Doesn’t Listen to Our Pleas, Re-teams With Ben Falcone for Netflix Series ‘God’s Favorite Idiot’

Melissa McCarthy: you’re one of the most talented actresses working today. But when you work with Ben Falcone, you’re comedic poison. The husband-wife duo’s collaborations have resulted in some real stinkers like Tammy, The Boss, and the recently released Superintelligence, all of which Falcone had directed and co-written with McCarthy, who starred in the films. And each new project has only delivered diminishing returns, each less funny and more insulting than the last. And now, McCarthy and F...

‘Superintelligence’ Review: Maybe Melissa McCarthy Should Stop Letting Ben Falcone Direct Her Movies

The first thing you should know about the new film Superintelligence is that it’s being distributed by the WarnerMedia empire. Second, you should know that WarnerMedia does not have ownership in The Late Late Show with James Corden , though the very existence of Superintelligence would seem to imply otherwise. Ostensibly, this comedy is about an average citizen being thrown into a situation where only she can save humanity from a mysterious artificial intelligence. But Superintellig...

Over the last decade, Melissa McCarthy has helped boost a handful of comedies with her fierce comic charm and timing.

Her immense talent in these films makes it all the more puzzling that the three films she’s co-written and produced, including the new comedy L...
