    It's an enjoyable ride.

    Bynes is a charmer who adeptly straddles the line between romantic heroine and physical comedienne, while Firth is extremely enjoyable as a befuddled father.

    For all the technical wizardry that went into making the film, Paxton's reflections on the human tragedies of the Titanic and the terrorist attack of Sept. 11th, 2001, which took place while the crew was out at sea, provide one of the film's most haunting moments.

    LaBeouf somehow manages to turn Kelly's self-centered behavior and irritating character quirks into a sympathetic lead, and the well-written script by newcomer Erica Beeney brings a lot of humor to some very touching moments.

    • 60 Angel Cohn
    This sweet trifle is infinitely more enjoyable than the gross-out romantic comedies that proliferated in the wake of "There's Something About Mary."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The film's heart is the relationship between Elsa and Julien, and stars Bouanich and Serrault have a lovely onscreen rapport that's truly endearing.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    While Edward Norton convincingly portrays both the good and bad side of his conflicted man, a great deal of the insight into his character comes from the strong supporting cast.

    • 60 Angel Cohn
    It's notoriously difficult to balance lighthearted humor with the spookiness a good ghost story requires, but director Rob Minkoff is surprisingly successful, delivering a satisfying mix of laughs and mild scares aimed at a young audience.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The film is an intriguing and hugely theatrical experience whose effectiveness is greatly enhanced by gorgeous period costumes and set design.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The manic energy of the lively and outrageous opening sequence sets a tone and pace the film can't maintain.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Stunningly beautiful scenery and the nearly unbelievable true story of a mountain-climbing expedition gone awry to chilling effect.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Overall it's an enjoyable cruise down the Garden State Parkway, and Affleck and Castro are charming companions.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Harmon and Murray are cardboard cutouts of ideal boyfriends; the only male performer allowed to shine is newcomer Ryan Malgarini, who nearly steals every scene he's in.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Webber's assured directing is evident throughout; in addition to eliciting strong performances from his cast, he always knows when to linger on an image and when to move on.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Can't match the original's shock factor --abortion isn't the taboo subject it once was and the women of Sex and the City have helped make playing the field good, dirty fun.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Only Lopez, the film's ostensible star, seems to be struggling; she's a lovely dancer, but the only reason Lopez's expressionless performance isn't this sweet picture's downfall is that the script makes so few demands on her.

    Audiences, especially preteens, will be enchanted by Ella.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    This sweet film is a genuine treat, even if there's little plot, no antic mayhem and its 90-minute running time is mostly consumed by nonstop, sometimes pretentious dialogue.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Strikes a carefully calibrated balance between the film's darkly malicious sense of humor and its pastel sets and costumes.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The kids -- most of them first-timers cast for natural charisma and musical ability -- steal the show, and a talented supporting cast helps take the edge off Black's manic antics.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The film is wickedly funny and a first-rate showcase for Ferrell.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Bettany, previously best known as a supporting player, shoulders the burden of a Hugh Grant-style romantic lead surprisingly well, revealing an offbeat charm.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The outlandish premise and greasy title may be a little hard to swallow, but Danny Leiner's proudly moronic film embraces its boneheadedness so cheerfully that its lowbrow charms are nearly irresistible.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Director Gary Winick serves up enough giddy fun that it's easy to turn a blind eye to the film's skewed sense of time and minor anachronisms.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Surprisingly heartfelt tale.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Some of the film's more violent scenes may be inappropriate for young and/or sensitive children.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Cassavetes' film is unusually well-acted and lovely to look at, but his wholehearted embrace of saccharine melodrama and tendency to let scenes ramble on long after their point has been expressed makes for some slow going.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Enjoyable and funny enough.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Readers hate to see their favorites messed with by filmmakers, and though devotees will notice changes from Brashares' novel -- some slight and some more substantial -- the film remains true to the book's spirit, and the deviations shouldn't alienate them.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    This cream puff of a romantic comedy is sweet enough, but lack of substance makes it deeply unsatisfying.
