    A double shot of Saturday-night lowdown chased by a cheery chug of Sunday-morning uplift.

    Heigl, a double-dip of praline with caramel, is so beautiful that initially you don't notice her comic chops.

    The unassuming performances by Krasinski and Rudolph help make this the first Mendes movie that feels lived-in rather than staged.

    When the tobacco is extinguished what comes between April and Frank Wheeler is bigger, colder and more formidable than the iceberg that sundered Kate and Leo in "Titanic": shattered hope.

    Yojiro Takita's movie simultaneously tickles tears of mourning as it wrings laughs about the meaning of life.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Hilarious fun.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Intermittently hilarious if also interminable.

    What this unclassifiable story may lack in decibels, it has in emotional depth. At once a mystery, a family drama, a snapshot of children at risk, Ballast is an unusually perceptive character study more eloquent in action than in dialogue.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Holds the audience captive and unusually vulnerable to psycho- and viscero-terror.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Like Connery - but in different proportions - Craig is earthy and erotic, holding himself like a smoking gun.
    • 61 Metascore

    Kudos to Clifton Collins Jr., who appears as a dispenser of cleaning products and common sense.

    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.

    While at times the improvisational dialogue sounds like audio filler, the three leads are poignant and perceptive.

    It's fair to say that Coach Carter is more an education film than it is a sports movie.
    • 58 Metascore

    Like most great comedies, Hitch confects a sweetly appealing fantasy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    In the end, Bellocchio suggests in this spiritual thriller that perhaps faith is the dream from which we do not awaken.

    A very curious and very entertaining mix, the Labradoodle of inspirational romantic-comedy-melodramas.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Cluttered as it is colorful, Robots is a visual delight.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A comedy as likable as its stars.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A gut-punch of a movie, a potent, mesmerizing drama.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Though I liked Love's unhurried pace and oddball digressions, its obligatory romantic-comedy resolution seemed too schematic for what had preceded it.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A film that leaves cinephiles breathless and the mainstream movie maniacs scratching their heads.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Sisterhood is Stand by Me for girls, as sullen, plucky, melodramatic, exuberant, athletic, graceless, crafty, artistic, arrogant, modest, helpless and resourceful as its teenage heroines.
    • 80 Metascore

    It is almost inevitable that Miyazaki, often compared to C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling, should have found in Diana Wynne Jones a kindred spirit.

    For the first 100 minutes of his 117-minute film Spielberg holds the audience in a grip of fear. When Ray and Rachel take refuge in the storm cellar of a survivalist (a miscast Tim Robbins), the director's grip relaxes only a bit, but the film never recovers from this excursion into the Gothic.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Hopelessly raunchy, helplessly romantic, and wickedly, wickedly funny.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Bills itself as a comedy but unfolds as the drollest of dramas, an extended-family album for the age of abortion, adoption and donor sperm. It's a cheeky story about turning the other cheek.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    It's an action movie that's also an intellectual-action flick.
    • 79 Metascore

    For actresses of a certain age, Jarmusch's film amounts to a full-employment act...Best are Stone, transparent in her desire, and Conroy, completely opaque.

    Apatow's film succeeds in having its virginity and losing it, too. Like "Wedding Crashers," it purges its cynicism with romanticism.
