    Time doesn't just slow down while you're watching Catch and Release -- it actually comes to a dead stop.

    Bill Forsyth's films are always idiosyncratic, but Being Human is so steeped in the director's interior dialogue with himself as to be incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't happen to be Bill Forsyth

    Like the equally dull romantic drama "Catch and Release," which was in theaters for a nanosecond back in January, In the Land of Women strains to convince the audience to that it's telling a real story about real people. But with its glossy visuals and photo-shoot ready cast, the movie ends up presenting us with the very opposite of reality.

    It's just a spectacularly lazy movie that's content to trod the same well-worn ground as its predecessors.

    By straining to make a respectful war film for everyone, Winkler and Friedman have wound up with a toothless picture that won't satisfy anyone.

    Cool World's numerous plot holes and illogicalities might be forgiven if it had interesting characters or impressive visual effects.

    An anemic adventure that epitomizes generic feature animation.

    The film is laughable when it tries to be dramatic and stone-faced when it strains to be funny. Beyond that, Man of the Year is often so wildly off the mark in its depiction of how elections are run, it's hard to believe that it was directed by the same guy who helmed "Wag the Dog," one of the savviest political films ever made.
