    A witty, well-acted, visually gorgeous ensemble drama.

    Greengrass' direction is uninspired, but there is powerful chemistry between a workmanlike Branagh and (real-life girlfriend) Bonham Carter. And her original, seductive and always believable turn as the difficult-but-lovable Jane raises the movie above all its flaws. [23 Dec. 1998, p.44]

    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    One of the most thrilling - and authentic - mountain-climbing films in recent memory. Unfortunately, it's also burdened by one of those every-line-a-wretched-cliché Hollywood screenplays.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Quickly morphs into a messy double message movie with motifs and clichés lifted from military courtroom films like "A Soldier's Story" and "A Few Good Men."
    • 77 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    A languid but refreshingly real depiction of female adolescence.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Bland, occasionally funny.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    It's an odd mixture of an unsentimental, darkly humorous take on mental illness with the usual Hollywood loony-bin cliches.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    A perfectly enjoyable sci-fi thriller.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    A cute, often very funny romantic comedy and an effective vehicle for Matthew Perry.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    By far the best thing about Pitch Black is the cool-looking lighting and photography.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Indeed, for all its jokiness, this isn't the film for anyone who suffers from even the mildest fear of ugly, scuttling, jumping creatures with spindly, furry legs that have a habit of hiding in your shoes.

    Inside Beautiful People, . . . there's a terrific film trying to get out.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Its plot and political symbolism manage to be both over-familiar and confusingly muddled.
    • 65 Metascore

    Ali
    Perhaps no movie could do Muhammad Ali justice. But this overlong but sketchy biopic by Michael Mann, in which style repeatedly tramples substance, actually does the great man a disservice.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    By far the best and cutest thing about How the Grinch Stole Christmas is the dog Max.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Doesn't live up to the promise of its trailers.
    • 10 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Initially amusing but finally sour sex comedy.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Contains too many weak performances and predictable lines to succeed, but it's probably the best rave movie so far.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    A lame, glossy and disastrously misconceived film about three ditsy sisters dealing with the death of their horrible father.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Graham is funny and adorable in this endearing little romantic comedy.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Has its heart in the right place -- and in a season filled with somber or goopy Oscar contenders, it makes a perfectly decent date movie.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Elegantly photographed family saga that brims with period detail. Unfortunately, the underlying story is less than compelling,
    • 30 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Formulaic but surprisingly charming.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Kevin Smith's attempt to combine sketchy low comedy with long-winded theological speculation results in a mostly unfunny and occasionally tedious mess.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    But given the potentially gripping subject matter, the film is fatally underedited: Every scene feels too long.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Takes you on a fascinating and picturesque journey into a relatively unfamiliar culture.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    A relentlessly grim, rather heavy-handed drama of family dysfunction.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Transcends ironic grunge-glamour and achieves a beguiling combination of dark comedy and genuine sweetness.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Turns out to be a choppily written, unevenly acted exercise, no less shlocky and predictable than any of Hollywood's average second-string heterosexual comedies.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 63 Jonathan Foreman
    Prime date fare, but cotton-candy light and occasionally just a little too whimsical.
