    More than just another feel-good teacher movie.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    The film's heart lies in what goes on at Calvin's shop, that haven from the cold, cruel world. Where else can you get philosophy, humor, friendship and a little off the top?
    • 36 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Harmless, mildly enjoyable.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    The sort of movie you enjoy much more while you're watching it in the theater than when you're deconstructing it on the way home.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    It is entertaining enough to send intelligent viewers (but only the intelligent ones) in search of the book.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Wields some power, but it's hard to shake the feeling you've seen it all before.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Despite its exciting moments, the film is too long.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    It's a pleasure to see acceptance portrayed so matter-of-factly. May never happen in our lifetimes, but Lesnick's vision of tolerance is a soothing thought, anyway.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Essentially an old-fashioned movie, nothing fancy, nothing new, just some jokes and some action and a crowd-pleasing finale.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    A well-intentioned coming-of-age film anchored by two indelible performances but weakened by an overabundance of drama.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Call it a victory for sincerity and style: Despite its familiarity, Blonde 2 doesn't make you want to pull out your hair by its (touched-up) roots.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Eventually loses its cheerful goofiness and its momentum, climaxing with a lengthy and embarrassing showdown scene at a big party. But it gets worse.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    The charms of Lucía, Lucía rely heavily on the charismatic Roth, who is funny and warm and a lot of fun to watch as she embraces her new life.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Despite the increasingly annoying presence of the mugging, fatuous Cuba Gooding Jr., The Fighting Temptations pulls off what feels like a major feat: Its musical sequences could make the most hardened atheist want to go to church.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    If it's not quite as funny as you want it to be, it's still more than enough to keep you entertained.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Plays out as little more than a diversion, one that does not truly break any new ground. But it's undeniably interesting and leaves plenty of room for a more thoughtful film about women and education.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Half-hearted satire of Hollywood and small-town life, and Bosworth is not particularly memorable in it.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Far more imaginative and intriguingly moody than other recent thrillers.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Vardalos may not have been the best possible Connie. But as Billy Wilder could have told you, nobody's perfect.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Garner may be a study in butt-kicking intensity on TV's Alias, but here, she's an engaging comic performer who more than carries her share of what is essentially an unoriginal, mostly average film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Move over donkey, it's Banderas' time to shine.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    The most interesting aspect of Danny Deckchair, though, may be that the film is based on the true story.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Shares an important slice of German history that is largely unknown.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    A poignant film punctuated with clumsy moments and a resolution that occurs far too abruptly.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Wimbledon may have its faults, but it's the sort of upbeat fantasy that's tough to resist. Maybe love wins in tennis after all.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Huston, unfortunately, is never really believable as a man rediscovering lost principles; he feels out of place in this otherwise fine ensemble.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Goes too far in its slapstick efforts to please mainstream audiences, but there's no denying the genuine appeal of -- and I can't believe I'm actually writing this -- Richard Gere and ballroom dancing.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    A fatal lack of character development dooms Enduring Love as little more than a fleeting curiosity.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    The mere idea of making a musical version of Pride and Prejudice set in modern-day India is delicious, though, and Chadha's lively imagination and good intentions almost make the concept work.
    • 72 Metascore

    There's no doubt that Leigh gets inside his characters' lives. But that's often someplace we'd rather not be.
