Good Things Utah

Good luck to you, Leo Grande

Rated R


Premiered at Sundance 2022

Run time: 1 hour 32 min

Searchlight Pictures

Staring two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Love, Actually) as an apprehensive retired teacher Nancy Stokes, and newcomer Daryl McCormack (Peaky Blinders) as Leo Grande. Nancy is like a lot of us. We grow up thinking everything needs to be a certain way. Nancy is now a widow and wants to experience life the way she always wanted to but never dared to try. She hires Leo to help her learn and achieve certain intimate goals and learns so much more about herself and life along the way.

Grade B


Cha Cha real smooth

Rated R


Premiered at Sundance 2022

Run time: 1 hour 47 min

Apple TV+

Andrew is a 22-year-old right out of college and back at home with his family in New Jersey.  Cooper Raiff writes, directs and stars alongside Dakota Johnson, Brad Garrett, Leslie Mann and newcomers Vanessa Burghardt and Evan Assante. This movie is about relationships, love and figuring out who you are at any age. Cooper Raiff knows how to draw you in to a story and fall in love with characters. I am not usually aq big fan of Dakota Jhonson, but she is organic and believable in this unconventional tale of hearts. 

Grade A-



Rated PG


Run time: 1 hour 40 min


In the past we have learned about Andy's toys from the Toy Story movies. We learned where Woody came from and the show that captured fans to love the Woody's Round Up toys. This is the movie that made Andy become a fan of Buzz. Buzz Lightyear embarks on an intergalactic adventure with a group of ambitious recruits and his robot companion. It is fun, innovative and full of heart. Staring Chris Evans, Taika Watiti, Keke Palmer and James Brolin.

Grade B+
