    Chéri never fulfills its emotional promise.

    This is a film about depression, though, and it comes awfully close to trivializing its subject by suggesting that all Craig needed, really, was a cute girl to like him back.

    Green Zone is just an excuse for director Paul Greengrass to haul out his jittery hand-held camera as Miller and Co. sprint through the streets and buildings of Baghdad in pursuit of one villain or another.

    Doesn't feel quite so lengthy as its predecessor. And while it still falls short of becoming the classic fans so badly want it to be, the film is livelier and better overall than "The Sorcerer's Stone."

    Feels more like a lecture you've already heard than a galvanizing call to action.

    The only thing missing from this winsome, madcap throwback set in London on the eve of World War II is an actual Brit in the title role.

    It's more amusing than not, but some scenes outlast the humor in them.

    The film is weighted down by a dour sensibility at odds with the book's insouciant charm.

    These Fitzgeralds are loud, selfish and often maddening, but they're a loving group, and you wouldn't mind spending more time with them.

    Ends up as colorless as Reeves' first Superman suit.

    42
    And still 42 persists in entertaining you, even when you’re cringing, because the real story is so compelling.

    It's almost impossible not to respond emotionally to this fascinating, sobering and all-too-brief exploration of the politicized religious right and its hopes, dreams and power.

    Begin Again manages to be romantic and cynical about the music industry, which Carney touches on but never allows to take center stage.

    Screenwriter Shawn Slovo -- whose white parents were anti-apartheid activists in South Africa -- ends his finely tuned screenplay on a note not of violence and anger but of forgiveness. It's a breathtaking coda that reminds us of that undeniable human beauty: the ability to survive, to fight for right -- and then move peacefully on.

    Fans of period drama will find things to like about The Duchess; it's not as ludicrous as "The Other Boleyn Girl," for instance, and it's not overly long or ponderous.

    The uneven Goldmember seems to take a big step toward the extremely juvenile, with more scatological and fewer sex jokes

    The only positive thing about the aimless film The Yellow Handkerchief is the idea that William Hurt may be ready for his Jeff Bridges moment.

    It makes you laugh and eagerly wish for a happy ending without any preachy soul-searching. As a bonus, it's got a Van Morrison-friendly soundtrack, and the trailers haven't revealed the best parts.

    The Help will make you laugh, yes, but it can also break your heart. In the dog days of August moviegoing, that's a powerful recommendation.

    Neurotic New Yorkers, messed up relationships, inept analysts, infidelity -- Ira & Abby has them all, and it's anything but refreshing to trudge through this well-worn territory again.

    Vardalos made the Portokaloses so funny they'll make your own family seem tame.

    As for the Marigold Hotel, well, it's not the Delano. But overall it's a fine spot to spend a couple of hours.
    • 61 Metascore

    Its overall ability to balance humor and drama, attention to emotional detail and a few winning performances outweighs its maudlin tendencies.

    A slow-moving but heartfelt film.

    The To Do List is a funny movie, but only if you’re not easily offended.

    Downey gives a nervy, riveting performance in The Soloist.

    Don't forget the waves. They're the stars of this show, and Blue Crush smartly never lets you forget it.

    Wah-Wah's characters are wonderfully human and flawed and still capable of stirring empathy, which is appealing. But in the end, the film isn't saying much at all.

    17 Girls is allegedly inspired by true events, but this diffident, dreamy film is so insubstantial it's hard to believe there's a speck of reality to be found in it.

    A fatal lack of character development dooms Enduring Love as little more than a fleeting curiosity.
