In ‘Dollface,’ Kat Dennings rediscovers her girlfriends after a bad breakup

The simplicity of “Dollface” doesn’t make the show any less fun, although this slenderly conceived comedy vehicle for “2 Broke Girls” star Kat Dennings could easily have landed on a conventional broadcast network.

With a great cast, fascinating story and old-school studio vibe, “Ford v. Ferrari” nearly clicks on all cylinders. Length-wise, the movie takes a few laps too many, with a (perhaps unavoidable) overabundance of racing scenes.
