River East 21 has become a thriving downtown film destination, playing host to the Chicago International Film Festival and a regular slate of advance screenings. With 21 screens available, many different titles can be shown at once, which means there's generally a good balance of blockbusters with arthouse fare. The projection is good, the sound is very good and the concessions are, as such things go, perfectly fine.

    Shoddy and exhausted from the start, this painfully unfunny buddy-cop comedy lands with a plop in the January sewer of failed Hollywood castoffs. Tim Story’s 2014 original seemed better plugged into the tensions between exuberant motormouth Ben (K...
