    This is a movie that's really about how much fun Glenn Milstead had being Divine, and how he — perhaps unexpectedly — found so many fans willing to go along for the ride. That's an American success story worth celebrating.

    Sarah Silverman says things you wouldn't expect a nice, attractive Jewish girl to say. But that's only half her appeal.

    It's easy to be offensive in a movie; it's much harder to be funny. Which is why Scary Movie emerges as such a waste; when you're so good at the latter, why keep falling back on the former?

    The story seems fresh and alive. They also had the good sense to cast Dunst, at 19 already one of Hollywood's finest and most consistent actresses.

    When Catch That Kid isn't careening from plot point to plot point, events turning on unseen dimes, it's trying to ingratiate itself with stunts and chases that its young audience have seen done better on Saturday-morning TV.

    The movie may be too precious for mass consumption, but its filmmakers' willingness to assume the best of their audience, combined with its Everyman origins, suggest a movie that deserves a chance.

    Tedious almost beyond endurance.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 63 Chris Kaltenbach
    Bland, inoffensive, formulaic and occasionally amusing - just like the animated kids' show that inspired it.
    • Baltimore Sun
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Chris Kaltenbach
    Lovely, heartfelt and unforced.
    • 54 Metascore

    The real strength of Return to Me is Hunt, who knows just when to retreat from the film's overriding sweetness and inject a cynical moment or two.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Chris Kaltenbach
    Equal parts fantasy and cautionary tale, a film that manages to be uplifting and off-putting simultaneously -- fortunately, more the former than the latter.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Chris Kaltenbach
    Look, I love dogs. But this film tried my patience almost beyond endurance.
    • 77 Metascore

    Let's just say this is a perfect film for penguin lovers who also are devoted members of the Green party - and leave it at that.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Chris Kaltenbach
    An opportunity to enjoy the pure adrenaline rush that has always been the hallmark of martial-arts cinema.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Kaltenbach
    Hands-down, the best James Brolin-in-an-Italian-accent movie ever.
    • Baltimore Sun
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Chris Kaltenbach
    Garden State is filled with characters you long to know more about, in situations to which almost anyone can relate. And that's as near a can't-miss movie formula as one can get.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Chris Kaltenbach
    The one thing most sorely missing is movie magic.
    • 49 Metascore

    Allen's latest, his 42nd effort as a director, is the work of an artist devoid of ideas and energy. Perfunctorily staged and lazily written, it comes to life in only the briefest of spurts, usually when the ever-reliable Tom Wilkinson is on-screen.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Chris Kaltenbach
    Thanks to the wonderful performances from both Korzun and Considine, there isn't a forced or dishonest moment on-screen.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Chris Kaltenbach
    A more honest version of "Summer of '42."
    • Baltimore Sun
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Chris Kaltenbach
    Offers plenty of honest, good-natured laughs in the process. That's something young and old can appreciate equally.

    Neither Grimm comes across as especially interesting to watch, and neither does anything in the movie offer much to get excited about.

    As it is, Hoot doesn't accomplish anything a picture book of the Everglades and a few well-chosen Jimmy Buffett tunes wouldn't do better.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Chris Kaltenbach
    A delightful and exuberant bit of romantic comedy and, as a bonus, it breathes new life into a pair of '70s musical chestnuts long off our culture's radar screens.

    The result is a charmer that boldly marches where lesser movies - at least since the heyday of John Hughes - fear to tread.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Chris Kaltenbach
    McConaughey and (especially) Hudson manage to make it all work, maintaining their likability even in situations where they inevitably end up acting like jerks.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Chris Kaltenbach
    Just don't think about what's going on, and you should be OK.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Chris Kaltenbach
    Soars on the strength of strong acting and a script that stubbornly refuses to go all sappy and preachy.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Chris Kaltenbach
    Novocaine is neither funny enough to be a comedy, nor dark enough to be a true film noir. Like the drug of the title, it just kind of leaves you numb and anxious to taste the good stuff once again.
    • Baltimore Sun
    • 37 Metascore

    It wasn't shot in Annapolis and doesn't have an original thought in its head. Other than that, Annapolis is a fine film.
