- ‘I Do…Until I Don’t’ Review: Lake Bell’s Directorial Career Takes a Wrong Turn

- Wednesday Aug 30, 2017
In a world where Lake Bell has already written, directed and starred in the spirited, iconoclastic charmer “In A World…,” “I Do… Until I Don’t” pushes the multitalented actress’ promising filmmaking career in the wrong direction with a regressive and uneven effort that can’t decide whether to be cynical or sentimental.Assembling a game cast of collaborators including Ed Helms, Mary Steenburgen and Amber Heard, Bell attempts to subvert new-relationship conventions for a meditation on the merits of longtime commitment, in the process overworking “he/she drives me crazy but I love him/her anyway” clichés without producing much in the way of insight, storytelling or even the effervescent humor that is fast becoming her trademark.

- ‘I Do ... Until I Don’t’ is feel-good comedy about marriage from Lake Bell
By G. Allen Johnson - Wednesday Aug 30, 2017
In Lake Bell’s second feature effort as writer-director-star, “I Do ... Until I Don’t,” three married couples in the sleepy Florida town of Vero Beach havc their lives upended when a filmmaker from the BBC arrives to make a documentary about marriage. Actually, it’s a documentary against marriage. The premise: Since human lifespans have become so much longer over the centuries, marriage should now be seven years contractually, with an option to renew every seven years. It’s an angst-ridden, sometimes contrived film, but it features Paul Reiser on a motorcycle, a full-blown meltdown from Mary Steenburgen, and the odd pairing of Bell and Ed Helms as husband and wife.

- West of Loathing review — a Southwestern tour of the moo-pocalypse
By Stephanie Chan - Thursday Aug 10, 2017
REVIEW: West of Loathing is a surreal role-playing game with an unapologetically silly sense of humor that would make Mel Brooks proud. It’s the latest title from Asymmetric Publications, whose web-based RPG Kingdom of Loathing is still going strong since its 2003 launch. Kingdom of Loathing is what you’d get if you fed a rowdy bunch of […]
