    Benigni, with great help from young Cantarini, has crafted a work of such complexity that you may find both your brain and your heart simply overloaded. Which, of course, is the rarely achieved goal of all art.

    If we're allowed just a couple of truly singular discoveries in twelve months, it's a good year; when one of them is a film as exhilarating as Spike Jonze's feature debut, it's a banner year.

    A lovely, luminous dream.

    It's a rare thrill -- in this cinematically hollow year.

    Clear-eyed and open-hearted, The Straight Story (which is based on reality) tells a simple tale, and it does so with a rare, blessed simplicity.

    The most faithful cinematic depiction of adolescence in recent memory.

    Despite the frivolous feel, it's clear the director intends for Bossa Nova to be a love letter to his two passions: Brazil and his leading lady (who's also his real-life wife). Neither lets him down.

    It still sounds pretty fresh: politicians scratching backs, loose ladies threatening to talk, careers balanced tremulously on the line
    • 72 Metascore

    Definitely worth a chance: although everyone in this fog-shrouded setting makes grand sacrifices, all you'll lose are a few tears.

    Bateman could have been much more interesting if he'd been played by someone who wouldn't need to work quite so hard (Charlie Sheen or Rob Lowe might have been fascinating here).

    Don't be fooled by the WB appeal; if you've ever been in high school, Cruel Intentions has the wiles to seduce.
    • 85 Metascore

    This mordant, macabre look at the American obsession with fast food, television and murder is icily funny.

    (Cusack)'s genius, however, is in his continual ability to be the most likeable of everymen.

    Battling back with droll seriousness, Murray imbues his sad-sack loner with a touching, funny dignity, and comes up with his best work in a very long time.

    Wouldn't you rather learn about his culture from Norbu than from Richard Gere?
    • 75 Metascore

    If you're in the mood for fairy tales, you've come to the right place.

    Were the casting stronger, the film -- would have had a better chance of transcending its lack of subtlety.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Intelligent thriller--turns-- into an embarrassing gothic horror show.
    • 61 Metascore

    Because (Vilanch) is such a character, the movie ends up being a lot of fun.

    There's not a single moment when you forget it's Weaver; she always seems to be inhabiting this poor character's soul for her own purposes.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Elizabeth Weitzman
    There are satisfying moments throughout the movie.
    • 50 Metascore

    A small-scale mess.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A sweet, if slender, surprise.

    It's not that this is lousy entertainment, it's just that it's a Serious Topic given unnecessary Celebrity Sheen.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Elizabeth Weitzman
    This is not a great comedy, but it has some honest laughs, a few touching moments.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A surprisingly adult exploration of religion refracted, as always, through (Smith's) insistently pop-culture kaleidoscope.

    Crudup tends to take average parts in standard genre films and turn them into something special.
    • 44 Metascore

    It's really too bad the film remains so resolutely flimsy, because the novice cast is so clearly delighted to be putting on a show, their glee is contagious enough to carry us along -- for a while.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Leaves almost no impression at all.
    • 64 Metascore

    Though it starts out as amusing satire, the jokes become as neurotic as Dallas' female population, and the film spins out of control in every way.
