    Sometimes demure, sometimes funny and other times flat-out crazed, Wuornos was effusive and confrontational when Broomfield filmed her just before her 2002 execution in Florida.

    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Delightful blend of comedy, kung fu, soccer and special effects.

    Tilda Swinton's rich, compelling performance is reason enough to see this uneven picture, which devolves from a riveting romantic triangle to a morality tale without a moral center.

    Unique.

    Delightful.

    Succeeds anyway, by putting a poignant human face on the struggle for equal rights.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    A one-woman show.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Sly and insightful fable.

    Has to be enjoyed in spurts. There's no cohesive story, just a series of opportunities for the title character (Jon Heder) to strut his gawky stuff.

    The movie is like one of those newfangled Vegas casinos, where what appears to be open sky is really painted ceiling. What's initially dazzling becomes stifling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    Pretty standard stuff, mixing a few truly clever moments with facile drug humor and throwaway female characters.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    A witty, energetic adaptation.

    The film rarely matches Crudup's performance, appearing confused itself about whether it's farce or drama.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    Loses momentum midway into the boys' journey.

    The nagging desire to help these people underscores the involvement of the audience in this superbly told story. You can almost taste the saltwater, and the fear.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Intimate, quietly illuminating documentary.

    Much credit for this delightfully morose children's film must go to director Brad Silberling's careful orchestration. Please note, in the vocabulary-building spirit of the Snicket books, that the word "orchestration'' here means "coaxing good performances out of child actors and keeping Jim Carrey in check.''

    The achievement of Saved!, a very funny teen comedy set in a Christian high school, lies in its careful avoidance of obvious traps.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    The problems lie not with the actors but with a glib approach that exposes the flaws of the original story.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    Highly entertaining, in a schadenfreude sense, but incomplete.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    A warmhearted and surprisingly ambitious sequel.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    There's no hiding a hokey love story that undercuts the picture's compelling tennis scenes.
    • 58 Metascore

    The less in control Smith and his co- stars Eva Mendes and Kevin James appear, the better Hitch becomes, until it's rather delightful.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    The always fierce Bassett is a little too fierce here, reacting with unwarranted emotion to each romantic twist and turn.

    Negotiating the role of a forward-thinking woman constrained by family demands and era, Elliott elevates a picture that's lovely to look at but lacking in dramatic impact.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Updates a classic premise -- the struggle for personal freedom -- by pairing it with ethical and moral quandaries.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    Features bursts of humor and electrifying energy offset by speechifying and a dud of a subplot.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    Fascinating context but awkwardly told.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    In I'll Sleep When I'm Dead,' master of stylish criminality Mike Hodges presents a nighttime London of sharp suits, distorted jazz notes and shiny luxury sedans cruising dirty streets.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Carla Meyer
    Pretty and vague, the kind of film that might play on a loop at a county fair's Americana exhibit.
