      dave j Monday, April 7, 2014 (2012) Cellmates COMEDY DRAMA I would've given this film a bomb, but because it has put me to sleep every time I put it on, I'm going to give it at least one star for doing just that. The set up is a silly one, and it consists users to alter their brains to this kind of level. Stars Tom Sizemore as KKK supporter, Leroy Lowe who's just been sentenced to 3 years in prison while his best friend, Bubba (Kevin P. Farley) and 'cellmate' only get a year, for a multiple of offenses nothing to do with race. Leory also happens to be the movie's narrator, as he rants about his time being locked up in a prison with a warden named Merville (Stacy Keach) who takes great pride into managing his potato field, since he's won awards. When Bubba becomes a vegetable as a result of choking on a potato, Leroy then have to share his cell with a another cellmate who happens to be a refugee from Mexico called Emileo (Héctor Jiménez) who's being locked up because of his right to have better pay working with short hours. And at the same time, Leroy ends up corresponding with a warden's maid, Madalena (Olga Segura) by way of letters behind the warden's back, and without him looking. The only problem is that, all the letters are written in Spanish whereas it's only language Madalena is capable to understand. And that Leory needs the assistance of Emileo to help him translate what the letters are saying, as well as writing letters back to her. One of the problems making a low budget movie is that that it eliminates specific questions that needed to be asked, while answering others, such as how did it come about that Madalena selected to correspond with the racist Leroy as opposed to the others, who also have to listen to the warden babble about potatoes? And since when did warden's respect letters from coming in and out, without trying to intercept any that may convict him? If Leroy assaulted Emileo, why wasn't it used against him? It is those questions and more which is why I can't recommend this movie, even though it has potential. 1 star out of 4 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Far better than expected. Satire comedy with a few unexpected twists. :-) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member 74% Sizemore back in the game. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Really boring with a few funny moments Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Whoever made this is asking to be lynched. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Modest film with a great tolerance message Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Andy Webster New York Times If you find the moral conversion of a militant lifelong bigot difficult to imagine, try the casting of the burly, fraying Mr. Sizemore as a romantic leading man. Rated: 1.5/5 May 31, 2012 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times A near complete exercise in mirthlessness and atonal satire, "Cellmates" is a sentence, all right. Rated: 1/5 May 31, 2012 Full Review Brian Tallerico HollywoodChicago.com Sizemore certainly does his best to elevate the material, but every time the movie threatens to kick into gear, something generic or even sitcom-ish in its degree of cliche derails it. Rated: 2.5/5.0 May 30, 2012 Full Review Marty Mapes Movie Habit A lifer with little chance for appeal Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 22, 2013 Full Review Brent Simon Shockya.com A slight but amiable prison-set satire, Cellmates surfs along mostly on the good fortune of its casting and sly peculiarity of its forced-odd-couple premise. Rated: C+ Jul 29, 2012 Full Review Fred Topel CraveOnline Not a real movie. Rated: 0 out of 10 Jun 21, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
