    A surprisingly savory treat, though it doesn't bear much resemblance to the charming classic children's book on which it's based.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    An often breathlessly exciting action thriller told with humor and intelligence.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Ruffalo and Knightley make an engaging pair of colleagues and their musical adventure together results in an enchanting, gently funny and occasionally poignant story.

    These characters are interesting for their flaws and wounds, but the movie doesn't delve deeply into the sources of their pain. See this movie for its humor and talented cast and you won't be disappointed.

    The car chases are unremarkable, but the stunts — which comically juxtapose Tatum's athletic grace and Hill's stocky clumsiness — are a hoot.

    Farmiga never seems to strike a false note in any role, but this is perhaps her most reflective and multi-layered performance.

    Like "Anchorman," the secret to the inspired absurdity of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is in the improv.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Entertainingly epic eye candy.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Neighbors is the "Animal House" for an era in which food fights seem quaint.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    This fun-filled adventure avoids formula with a whimsical story and terrific voice casting.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    While it's too hastily and neatly resolved, Hello I Must Be Going is a funny, well-written, involving and emotionally honest tale.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The story has just the right blend of child-centered silliness and winking adult humor.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    It's consistently funny -- with witty dialogue and offbeat banter that stays in your head for days.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Intricately plotted without being contrived and exhilarating in its eccentricity.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    A junior chick flick. But unlike many of its more mature counterparts, it is emotionally affecting, avoiding the manipulation and formulaic camaraderie that often spoil the genre.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    This very funny spoof of telenovelas and classic Mexican westerns is decidedly offbeat and absurdly daffy.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Scarlett Johansson is ideally cast as a rapidly evolving kick-ass hero in Lucy, a stylish action thriller that is equal parts dazzling and ludicrous.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The dialogue is fast-paced and full of pop-culture references. It all makes for an entertaining blend of buddy-cop action and irreverent teen-comedy satire.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The thin story, which sometimes feels like a series of one-liners strung together, is wisely kept short. But the gags are funny and the characters endearing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    While it's the most ambitious of the three films, it's not as mesmerizing as 2008's "The Dark Knight." The plot is occasionally murky, its archvillain lacks charismatic menace, and the last hour is belabored.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    While the tension is sometimes muted, this is more than a procedural round of spy games. The deliberately paced but riveting film is made all the better because of Hoffman's breathtakingly nuanced portrayal.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    If feuds, drunken outbursts and thoughtless bed-hopping sound like fun, then A Christmas Tale is a hoot. Some wry humor runs through the course of the overly long saga. But there's not enough dark wit to mitigate the tedium and pretentiousness.

    Furious 7 offers edge-of-the-seat excitement with outlandish action sequences, inventive stunts, hilarious cartoonish moments and even some touching emotion.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The point of the film is not to scorn or mock the Siegels, despite their excesses. They embody the quintessentially American urge to live beyond one's means. Their saga is simply the story of a nation's materialism writ large.
    • 72 Metascore

    Earnest and understated, Gran Torino is an unflinching examination of themes that have fascinated Eastwood in most of his recent films: family, war, loss, faith and unexpected human connection.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The Curse of the Golden Flower is the year's most operatic and visually lavish film.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    Mashing up satire, subtle social commentary, clever gadgetry, keen wit and high-octane style, this spy saga — based on the comic book series The Secret Service — is bolstered by a terrific cast.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The glacial pacing may put some people off, but it also has a hypnotic quality. And some viewers might find it fascinating to be a voyeur into someone's tortured psyche.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Claudia Puig
    The film's look, fashioned by production designer Michael Howells, is noteworthy for its vibrant colors and fantastical feel.
    • 53 Metascore

    O
    Artful and emotionally compelling.
