Office Christmas Party
Workplace comedy lacks the laughs
Film Review  December 9, 2016, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...In a last-ditch move to save the branch, Clay decides to throw a rager of a party in order to convince buyer Walter Davis (Vance) to purchase their servers, which would turn around the branch’s fortunes. A good portion of Chicago eventually winds up at the party, including Jesus and a donkey, Jimmy Butler of the Bulls, and a prostitute (Lee) giving hand jobs in the men’s restroom..."

Robert Faires' Top 10 (+1) Theatre Riches of 2017
From monsters to mountains, wolves to wild horses, the year came alive with figures boldly created onstage
Arts Story  December 28, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...3) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (Mary Moody Northen Theatre) Jane Austen with class – the polished style and the stratified social system integral to her novels. Everyone working on this MMNT show was on the same page regarding money and status, and the result was a romance with stakes, sumptuous clothes by Jennifer Davis, and a glorious comic turn by Mary Cox as Mrs..."

Bedtime Stories That Bite Back
Jennifer Kent discusses horror debut The Babadook
Screens Story  December 4, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...In what feels like an interstitial genre moment between horror film trends – we appear to be stalled in a desert of Saw and Paranormal Activity sequels and knockoffs – The Babadook mines a rich, throbbing vein of classic, spooky suspense and high-string paranoia. The story of a widowed and grief-stricken single mom (Essie Davis) and her 7-year-old son Samuel fighting off the eponymous, pop-up book-born monstrosity, Kent and cast masterfully set a tone somewhere between suburban gothic and the incipient creep of total lunacy..."

The Vortex's staging of Reina Hardy's magical new play, Changelings, casts a uniquely compelling spell
Arts Review  January 22, 2015, by Elissa Russell
"...Ann Marie Gordon's scenic design, which looks as though it were ripped out of a pop-up book, lends the perfect fairy-tale feel to the experience and is complemented by Patrick Anthony's dreamlike lighting. Jennifer Davis' costumes are equally fantastical, while elegantly intricate..."

The Taming of the Shrew
Shakespeare's troubling comedy, done old-school, gets a new lease on life
Arts Review  May 14, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...Happily, that isn't the case in the Hidden Room Theatre's production of Shrew, which is touted as hewing closely to the "original practices" of Shakespeare's day – period costumes, props, music, dance, lighting, and casting style (i.e., no women). This approach has yielded quite the handsome show, most notably in the sumptuously detailed attire from Cherie Weed and the music supplied by Jennifer Davis and her fellow musicians..."

Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties
Hide the lasagna: The fat, lazy cat – and his doppelgänger – is back.

Film Review  June 16, 2006, by Marrit Ingman
"...Grant, and Vinnie Jones – are laid to waste voicing the flesh-and-blood animals (Rhys Ifans fares the best as a Scots bunny) while Garfield breakdances. A children’s movie about wily farm animals besting their human enemy and saving their manor might have been worth watching, but what is Garfield doing here? Jim Davis’ cartoon strip (and its television incarnations, with voice work by the deadpan Lorenzo Music) isn’t high art, but it at least has a sly charm and a point to make: People are whipped by their pets..."

Garfield: The Movie
Garfield Declawed is the result of taking this comic strip to the big screen.

Film Review  June 11, 2004, by Marrit Ingman
"...Sadly the task falls to me. This Garfield is everything Jim Davis’ eponymous cartoon isn’t – busy, ingratiating, too-cute, and smarmy – and nothing it is – dyspeptic, laconic, subversively attuned to the inner lives of animals while their humans bumble and cater..."
