    It works. "Lizzie" is wholesome, smart and sweet.

    In some ways, this is "The Graduate" gone to "Lord of the Flies."

    The visuals pop, the fish emote and the ocean comes alive. That's in the first two minutes. After that, they do some really cool stuff.

    Will have even the most landlocked goofy-footers wondering why they never learned to surf.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    A harmless and amusing summer comedy.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    It all adds up to a cheekier "Lion King" on a lower budget. But what you miss in spectacle you will make up in laughs.

    Until now, it may not have occurred to you that what we needed was a witty lesbian romance. Once you see A Family Affair, you realize what we've been missing.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    A lovely, evocative tour de force. So why does it seem we should be enjoying it more?

    The result? Well, as expected, director John Singleton ("Boyz N the Hood") did not make a movie as good as "FF1." This is way better.
    • 76 Metascore

    This is a film without a single false note. From the rain-streaked windshield to the unaffected line readings from a stellar cast, there is not a shot in Blue Car that doesn't ring true.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    This is Curtis' film. Looking a little like a combination of Carol Burnett and Annie Lennox, Curtis has this character down.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    It is bearable, in every sense of the word, and that's worth something for parents looking for G-rated entertainment.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    Impossible to describe, impossible to forget, The Triplets of Belleville sends audiences tottering out of the theater, dazed and delighted, and wondering what it is they have just experienced.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 C.W. Nevius
    A tasteless, vulgar, savage assault against everything that is good and decent in the Christmas season. I think you are going to like it.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    It would help if the plot were more than just an outline with a few convenient turns.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    A small triumph for lowered expectations.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    It is a great story, but it hasn't been translated to the screen. It is never a good sign when the biographical notes have more emotional wallop than the movie.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    Surprises you with heart.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    The story goes nowhere...We don't understand the motivation of the characters.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    Predictable.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    Better for several reasons. First, they've jazzed up the animation. The backgrounds appear to be digital, and they are striking. The story is also less violent and combative.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    An unusually cheerful depiction of prostitution. You've never seen such wholesome hookers.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    Another of those summer movies that want to pluck at our heartstrings. If it would just stop plucking for a second, it might be enjoyable.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    What started out with the feel of a tight little kids' thriller turns into a Nickelodeon afternoon movie.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 C.W. Nevius
    Dreamy and deliberate.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 C.W. Nevius
    What this really is is a great deal of screaming and running from room to room, wacky chase scenes, the old bag switcheroo, dim-bulb crooks and zany antics. Everyone is working hard, but as with Sofia Vergara's costumes, there isn't enough material.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 25 C.W. Nevius
    Despite good reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival, this is the kind of squishy lost cause that gives liberal guilt a bad name.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 C.W. Nevius
    The exception is Willis as Spike. He's got more energy than the rest of the cast combined.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 C.W. Nevius
    Standard hack-and-giggle fare, with a few wisecracks mixed in with the gore.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 C.W. Nevius
    It is never a good sign when the audience is two steps ahead of the characters on the screen. Waiting for them to catch up wears everyone out.
