    Here is a movie with everything going for it and nothing working.
    • 58 Metascore

    Startlingly original film.

    During its two hours-plus running time, Field's movie veers from dark comedy to melodrama, not always gracefully. But tonal inconsistencies don't blunt the keenness of its satire, so sharp that I walked out with emotional razor burn.

    Most parents will find the movie has the familiar feeling of one of those kid birthday parties where the little ones are on chocolate highs and the adults run out of scheduled activities after 20 minutes.

    It's indescribable fun.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Carrie Rickey
    Exhilarating, edgy and wryly comic.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Carrie Rickey
    Combines fingernails-on-blackboard audio agony with bamboo-under-fingernails physical torture.

    It's hard to say with assurance whether the flaw is in Bloom's performance or in Monahan's politically correct conception of Balian, precociously secular for a Crusader.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 63 Carrie Rickey
    It is an exploitation picture disguised as a hipster comedy.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Holds the audience captive and unusually vulnerable to psycho- and viscero-terror.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Encourages viewers to think outside the big box of super stores such as Wal-Mart.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Carrie Rickey
    Short, sweet-and-sour, and amusing rather than funny, Despicable Me can't help but be likable.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    It's an action movie that's also an intellectual-action flick.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 63 Carrie Rickey
    A light-as-powder family comedy.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Featuring seasoned warriors reflecting on whether we can best fight violence with violence is enormously compelling.
    • 67 Metascore

    What's frustrating for the viewer who wants to support the Jamaican economy is that "Life and Debt" does not suggest how Jamaica-lovers can help the island's citizens.

    Funnier than his criticism of egos on the rampage is Guest's rare talent for double-edged satire that tweaks one convention by means of another.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Not only is Bossa Nova a lovely romance, but one can say, as one can about few films, that it is restorative as a vacation.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Its portrait of an artist hungry for experience is as timely today as when it was written.
    • 59 Metascore

    Harvey's a gifted physical mimic who demonstrates the comic waddle of the church usher with fallen arches, as well as the poor parishioner etiquette of grabbing too many communion wafers.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Carrie Rickey
    The film is intermittently funny and strangely intermittent.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    The scenery is majestic, the goats adorable, the characters alternately gruff and tender. Like the best storytellers, Carion delays vital information about his characters that makes their dynamic increasingly interesting.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    The three parallel love stories of daughter and dad, girlfriend and boyfriend, sister and brother, are nicely handled. Robinson is a sympathetic director of actors, allowing almost everyone their dignity. For the most part, she keeps this emotionally charged story in the schmaltz-free zone.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Carrie Rickey
    Over-orchestrated and underdeveloped interpretation of Jeffrey Hatcher's play.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Carrie Rickey
    Whether it's the clothing, cars or furniture, everything is sleek and chrome-plated. That is, with the exception of Bening's alchemical performance, which turns brass to gold.

    While on its face, Mother and Child is about the impact of adoption, in its heart Garcia's movie reckons how consequential motherhood is in the calculus of womanhood. The fine actors show how we bond to those not related to us by blood - and also how we love. Bring Kleenex.

    • 63 Carrie Rickey
    It's not a great film but it's pure pleasure.
    • 46 Metascore

    It might not be good enough to make you laugh consistently, but Hollywood Ending looks good enough to eat.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 63 Carrie Rickey
    It's a shameless don't-hate-me-because-I'm-beautiful-and-impulsive performance (Diaz), and it throws the entire movie out of balance.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 65 Metascore

    As it progresses, the film takes us to another borderland, that between reality and delusion. This is where Harlan's mind freely gallops.
