I certainly recommend this book. I imagine almost everyone will find at least a few movies here they'll be glad to have seen. Maltin's style is accessible and his reviews contain interesting information about the films, their casts, directors and crews.

If you love movies and you have never seen a movie you didn't like on some level then this is a "must have" book for your collection. Maltin has collected 151 movies, some well know and many obscure to tempt the appitite of any movie buff. It is written in typical Maltin style, easy to read and informative.

here's a fun book where Leonard Maltin shares his opinions on movies that weren't in the theaters very long and we might have forgotten to add to that 'watch some time' lists. One friend who likes a lot of the movies I do cautioned me that our likes and dislikes aren't too much like Maltin's, but it's still fun to find recommendations for films, many for grown-ups, that will entertain some afternoon or evening!
