    By turns rowdy and rueful, The Switch is a comedy with serious ramifications, not least of which is the question, what makes a family?
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    I was with the movie until its head-scratcher of an ending, too oblique for its own good.

    All of the elements that made The Matrix a mass-cult phenom -- breathtaking physical gymnastics wedded to the brain-cramping mental and spiritual kind -- resurface in Reloaded.

    At its best, Nanny McPhee Returns has the playful surrealism of "Babe," if "Babe" had been directed by Terry Gilliam.

    The story hooks us because stars Helen Mirren and Julie Walters look as fetching in woolens and Wellingtons as they do in the altogether. But it reels us in because it is about people who for so long have paid lip service to making a difference that they are profoundly altered when they actually do.

    Beautifully photographed by Crystel Fournier, Sciamma's film has a floaty weightlessness (as opposed to the heavyosity of "Boys Don't Cry") that neither judges nor pathologizes Laure.

    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A gut-punch of a movie, a potent, mesmerizing drama.
    • 63 Metascore

    A jubilee for McDormand and jolly good fun for most everyone else.
    • 64 Metascore

    The film is plush and passionate and graced with elegant performances. Best is that of Emma Thompson as Brideshead's matriarch, Lady Marchmain, who resembles a cross between Helen Mirren's Queen Elizabeth II and Pope Benedict.

    This furry family comedy about a boy and his border terrier is irresistible, if not exactly in the league of "Babe."

    Despite its title, The Exploding Girl is an oddly tranquil experience.
    • 73 Metascore

    Ranging in age from 30 to 96, the Berlevag men clearly enjoy being on camera and are unusually candid about their various pasts as Casanovas and hashish addicts.

    At its best it is one of the most dynamic movies from a most dynamic filmmaker, now 76.

    Maybe it's just the subtitles, but it would seem that Fontaine has a keener eye for the elements that made Chanel's style than she has an ear for dialogue. But she gets a splendid performance from Tautou.

    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A pink-collar "Sex and the City" made urgent by the performance of Nathalie Baye.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Irreverent, provocative and provoking.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    This unassuming and unexpectedly moving picture set in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood is a sugarplum-and-sofrito affair centering on the Rodriguez household.
    • 47 Metascore

    Handles the strained daddy/daughter bond with sufficient lightness and laughs so that fathers won't mind accompanying their spawn.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Compulsively entertaining documentary.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Graced with unusually expressive and seamless voice work by Drew Barrymore and George Lopez, the best of its kind since "Babe."

    While I much liked The Duchess, this portrait feels unfinished.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A triumph for Cheadle and Sandler, whose performances strew the seeds of regeneration.
    • 79 Metascore

    You go to a Daniels movie not to be entertained, but edified. While not everyone goes to the movies for self-improvement, you will leave this one having witnessed phenomenal acting.

    A one-of-a-kind experience that boasts a twice-in-a-lifetime performance from Nicolas Cage. The actor has not gone this deep into the abyss since "Vampire's Kiss" (1989).

    Throughout, Bergsholm's poker-faced performance creates the effect that we are watching the misadventures of an actual teenager. It may be a slight comedy but Turn Me On, Dammit! is enormously entertaining.

    Great as Whitaker is in this juicy slab of Oscar bait, Macdonald's movie doesn't have much to offer beyond a pair of stunning performances, propulsive editing, fantastic scenery and the heartbeat rhythms of African music.

    A spare document featuring one talking head. But what a talking head and what a story!
    • 48 Metascore

    Though I liked Love's unhurried pace and oddball digressions, its obligatory romantic-comedy resolution seemed too schematic for what had preceded it.
    • 73 Metascore

    It's got one of the best kisses in movie history: Spidey, hanging upside down, delivers an open-mouth smooch to Mary Jane, a lip-lock for the ages.

    Her (Chadha) film tastily demonstrates that variety is the spice of not only American life, but of American cuisine.
