Review by Jenni Miller: Reese Witherspoon gets admirably down and dirty in this adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling memoir about her trek along the Pacific Crest Trail. It’s a trip she’s barely prepared for; unlike the more experienced hikers she meets along the way, her bag is unwieldy and full of things she doesn’t really need, and she’s not nearly ready for the physical travails of the task, from bloody toenails to crapping ...

Co-written by Hollywood power couple Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, directed by Falcone, and starring McCarthy as the titular Tammy, this rowdy road-trip flick is everything female fans hoped it would be. Most scenes pass the “Bechdel Test” with flying colors (meaning they involve at least two women talking to each other about something other than men). The script maximizes McCarthy’s supernatural physical comedy abilities while minimizing the ... Read More
The search for the 234 teenage girls who were kidnapped from their school in the Nigerian city of Bornu while taking their exams on April 14 is still dragging on.
