    Unexpectedly charming. It's a classic date movie, but it also will appeal to pre-dating tweens and middle-aged romantics.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Just as sharply funny and as heartwarming, yet unsentimental, as the first.

    There is enlightenment -- even stark poetry -- in The Passion.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A potent psychological thriller bolstered by strong performances and an offbeat sense of humor. What renders it an unsettling cut above many thrillers is the casting of Johnny Depp in the lead.

    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A Southern-style "Ocean's 11" without the pretty boys and Vegas attitude but with plenty of laughs.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Not for everyone. It is darkly funny, intellectually challenging and obliquely didactic. It also grows bleaker over the course of its nearly three-hour running time.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Amusing, charming and pleasantly nostalgic.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Entertainingly epic eye candy.

    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Not only is Saved! subversively funny, it is unexpectedly sweet.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    If moviegoers suspend their disbelief -- easy enough thanks to the diverse and talented cast, as well as Spielberg's capable direction -- they're bound to enjoy this cinematic fantasy.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    An old-school documentary that is both non-controversial and uplifting, America's Heart & Soul could be subtitled the Anti-Fahrenheit 9/11.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    That he can make his anchorman chauvinistic, deluded and ridiculous but still manage to give him some humanity is testimony to Ferrell's comic talents.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A revelation: funny, fascinating and insightful.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The movie is really a lovely ensemble piece. Beautifully conceived and written by Michael Cunningham (Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours), the film has a distinctly novelistic and literate style.

    Though unlikely to have the lasting quality of "The Graduate," it feels a bit like that seminal film for today's generation.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A bittersweet relationship drama with enough honest emotion and gentle humor to move even the steeliest heart.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    When Team America works, it falls squarely into the category of guilty pleasure.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Birth presents an intriguing premise about death and the possibility of rebirth in an elegant, melancholy and deliberate fashion.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A suspense thriller that intelligently explores the ideal of lasting love.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The story is told gently and simply without excess sentimentality. It is a welcome departure from more contrived holiday fare.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    At the rate things are going, all of Hollywood will put in about a day's work on "Ocean's Seventeen."
    • 90 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    One of the year's most clever and visually arresting computer-animated films, enlivened by a well-developed and credible cast of characters who just happen to be superheroes.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Scotsman Gerard Butler does a fine job as the charismatic, ghostly character.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Given the story's focus on religion and the intolerance that still rages in today's world, The Merchant of Venice remains deeply meaningful.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Incorporates a range of genres -- black comedy, thriller, psychological drama -- and emerges more powerful for it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A charmingly sweet experience.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A sweet, family-friendly retelling of a touching and funny Newbery Award-winning children's book.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Hustle's approach to a simple good-vs.-evil plot is eccentrically exuberant.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The film's most climactic moments involve the chilling audiotapes of avaricious Enron traders as they toy with California's energy crisis, wringing millions in profits from the misfortune of an entire state.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The improvised dialogue has a no-holds-barred quality that can hit or miss. But when it hits, it can be hysterical.
