The start of April kicks things into high gear. This weeks home movie releases offer a hilarious comedy, a chilling horror and a compelling Netflix series. Don’t miss this weeks top picks:


Owen Wilson and Ed Helms are looking for their father. Now that’s a premise that’s sure to entertain, and it does. Wilson and Helms play two adult brothers that are searching for their father after being mislead all their lives. Among the choices, Terry Bradshaw (playing himself), Ving Rhames, J.K. Simmons and Christopher Walken. Come on, you can’t assemble a better daddy list than that, that’s quality. Fortunately it all comes together great, this great mix of actors really let loose and have fun on-screen.

This is an over-the-top, outrageous, raunchy comedy that you’d expect from Helms and Wilson coming together. There is a bunch of funny antics and one-liners that will keep you engaged and laughing. I found it to be ridiculously fun. It’s one of these underrated comedies that flew under-the-radar. Look out for the beach scene where Bradshaw, Helms and Wilson toss around a football and get Rhymes gives them the lowdown on their mother, it’s hilarious. Great cast, timely comedy and outlandishly entertaining plot and characters make Father Figures one of the prime must see films of the week.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
