Kevin Hart is mistaken for a killer in The Man From Toronto

Have you ever booked a stay at an Airbnb only to find that it’s not what you expected? In The Man From Toronto, that’s what happens to Kevin Hart’s Teddy. But instead of dirty sheets and foul smells coming from the fridge, Teddy’s problems are a little more pressing. Because he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, some very bad people believe that Teddy is the infamous enforcer/assassin known as The Man From Toronto. And if Teddy wants to keep breathing, then he had better make sure that the criminals believe his deception.

Netflix has released the first trailer for The Man From Toronto, which introduces both Teddy and the guy he is subbing in for: Randy (Woody Harrelson). As you might expect, Randy is less than pleased that someone has been trading upon his name and reputation. Unfortunately for Teddy, Randy doesn’t see any other option than to make sure that his clients keep thinking that Teddy is the man they hired.

If the trailer is any indication, it looks like the story will become an odd buddy comedy between the pair. Teddy clearly seems to feel some connection to Randy, which doesn’t appear to be shared. But that’s part of the fun because they’re in this together now.

Kaley Cuoco also stars in the film as Maggie, with Jasmine Mathews as Ruth, Pierson Fodé as the “Man from Miami,” and Tomohisa Yamashita as the “Man from Tokyo.” Ellen Barkin, Lela Loren, and Kate Drummond will fill out the rest of the supporting cast.

Patrick Hughes directed The Man From Toronto from a screenplay by Robbie Fox and Chris Bremner, which was adapted from a story by Fox and Jason Blumenthal. It will premiere on Netflix on June 24.

I hated, hated, hated this 2023 movie that everyone else loved. Here’s why
5 football players sit at a table in Bottoms.

It's not a stretch to say that 2023 was a pretty great year for movies. Between successes like Oppenheimer and Barbie, acclaimed darlings like Poor Things and Anatomy of a Fall, and unexpected hits like Godzilla Minus One and Anyone but You, the film industry thrived last year. However, as usually happens, more than a few films earned far more acclaim than they should have, at least in this writer's opinion. I've written already about my dislike for Emerald Fennell's Saltburn, but that was a divisive film that had far more detractors than just me. On the contrary, Emma Seligman's teen comedy Bottoms received near-universal acclaim, and I can't, for the life of me, understand why.

Bottoms isn't necessarily bad, strictly speaking; it's not a true abomination like, say, Ghosted or The Flash. However, it's also not the teen triumph it was anointed to be by most critics and the internet. Instead, it's a rather average movie that is not nearly as subversive or clever as it pretends to be. In fact, compared to other entries in the raunchy teen genre, it's painfully mediocre, and the more praise it got, the more I disliked it. And while "hate" might be a strong word, especially when talking about a movie, it's a pretty succinct, if slightly exaggerated, way to describe my feelings towards Bottoms.

There's large influx of reality shows and a few programs from History on Hulu in June. But for fans who prefer scripted television, there are a few gems in the rough that didn't get the attention that they deserved when they were on network television or even on rival streaming services.

Our first pick a steamy drama that had even bigger drama behind the scenes, as well as a crime series and a British comedy series that was once streaming on Netflix and Max before it came to Hulu.
