  • Sandler's uproarious off-color parody of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah injects the film with an inspired note of raucous comedy that undercuts any pretensions to solemnity. Full Review

  • Though the doc plays sincerity by the book, shoehorning in a ton of Jersey Shore cleanup, you get a real feeling for the crazy quilt of tristate community, bonded by crisis and "Baba O'Riley." Full Review
