    • 60 Ed Park
    Family goes easy on the schmaltz, and the catastrophes have the puncturing feel of real life.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    The situation -- a mother-daughter mind-body switcheroo -- is as enduringly appealing as it is absurd, and the comedy flows therefrom.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    As a dirtier Deepak, Mistry is blankly sweet, suitable for his role as Subcontinental Rorschach.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    The low-key animation, featuring little that could not have appeared in its '50s predecessor, is all the more affecting for being so pristinely preserved.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    To this viewer and reader, the decade-old juggernaut is as deeply felt as it is flawed, dense and illogical and laudably "weird."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    In the rare moments when a rifle, grenade, howitzer, bayonet, dagger, fist, land mine, or flamethrower isn't being deployed, the film pushes its melodramatic plotline with soap operatic shamelessness.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    An anti-"Rififi" in which nearly everybody loses their cool, not after the big score goes down but repeatedly and neurotically throughout.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    The leads smooth over the plot holes endemic to all 4D fables, making the movie more than mere déjà vu.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Unsettling in spots, Princesa ultimately glosses over the futility of Fernanda's plight, her misery rapidly erased.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Despite a late-inning swoon of pat emotional generosity, Game Six is a gratifying playground of high-wire language.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    A bitter little fable of rent control and its discontents, Duplex moves rapidly into darkness and claustrophobia.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Crammed with wild action, obvious but well-mounted gags, and playful effects, the film is refreshingly silly.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Mike Leigh mainstay Timothy Spall deftly shades in the designated goner, fellow "Still Crazy" alum Bill Nighy is sweetly wispy as the capable fop, and anger-management counselor Olivia Williams trembles pleasantly as usual.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Has shades of such oleaginous insider-treading as "The Player" and "Celebrity," but the mood, like the lighting, is altogether sunnier.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    The adventure-book pace and topsy-turvy English setting evoke the feel of Stephen Sommers's "Mummy" films.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Numbing but effective debut.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Adept and generally enjoyable.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    His story is sad but not humorless.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Yuki's streamlined revenge story (the furious, elegant choreography is by HK maestro Donnie Yen) has in its modest dimensions a surprising grace.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Solidifying his funnyman rep, Ashton Kutcher appears as oldest child Piper Perabo's model-actor boyfriend, a delightfully brainless narcissist.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    One leaves the film with the Twilight Zone sense that the place isn't quite the hellhole prior reports have suggested.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    Efficient, suitably anonymous chiller.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    Lighthearted if shy of a lark.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    Ham-handed to start, with a fondness for cochlea-crushing decibel levels, National Treasure gets more entertaining as the preposterousness rises.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    If nothing else, Sophie Fillières's Ouch! is a secret pop culture index.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    But mostly the film is just hectic and homiletic: two parts exhausting "Men in Black" mayhem to one part family values.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    Patient and fascinated, but never succumbing to abstraction, Wheel of Time can be seen as the middle installment of a trilogy against nature.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    Danny Boyle's Millions is not what we'd expect from the "Trainspotting" and "28 Days Later" director. It's essentially a gentle, kid's-eye parable.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    When it comes to the "humans," the atmosphere collapses. Unnervingly smooth, mouths moving in strange, even frightening formations, the Polar people are the least convincing things on-screen, glaring impostors amid the otherwise painstakingly rendered scenery.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    It's all an excuse for some daft production numbers, however, and a chance to relive the vanished Holland of your youth. Yes Nurse? No Nurse? Maybe Nurse!
