    • 56 Metascore
    • 63 Kevin Maynard
    Brooks' least satisfying film in quite a while.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 63 Kevin Maynard
    Unsuccessfully attempts to fathom Kaufman's lunatic sensibilities, supplying scant psychological insight into what made the outrageous comic tick.

    • 62 Kevin Maynard
    "Run mad whenever you choose, but do not faint," Austen wrote in her early journals. Despite its brazen politics, Mansfield Park never goes giddily amok as promised.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 62 Kevin Maynard
    Along the way, we end up losing patience with our couple-to-be because they seem too smart to endure the indignities ceaselessly heaped on them.

    All of the interviewees are compelling, whether proudly showing off bruises and bullet holes from on-the-job scuffles, or voicing their opinions about how the profession has changed.

    O
    Too much of a locker-room melodrama to make for great tragedy.

    Hits the wall and runs off the rails. They should've stuck to shtick.

    Like "Pollock," Nora is a convincing portrait of the intersection between creative genius and crazy, all-consuming love.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Its emotional sweep is ultimately undercut by murky characterizations and generic plotting.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Makes for compulsive viewing.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 31 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    It's a coffee-table movie, but what saves it are a couple of performances.Rowlands puts a spin on every line reading, Harris quietly mines regret, and Shields, assured and sexy, has never been this good.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Beautifully performed and filmed, but tiresomely schematic episodes like this one cause us to experience major sensory deprivation.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Ultimately too slight and opaque to inspire much ardor.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    A modestly entertaining ride.

    Born Romantic feels less like it was born than assembled, in a kooky Britcom factory. It's no "Four Weddings and a Funeral," but it's certainly a happier conception than last month's "Maybe Baby."

    The real reason to see it is Brian Cox, best known for being filmdom's other Hannibal Lecter (he played the role in Michael Mann's "Manhunter").
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Makes for compulsive viewing even though its noirish plot doesn't make a lick of sense.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The film has an unabashed romantic tone that's matched by Wenders' usual flair for visual drama.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Too often, the movie is more forced and frantic than actually funny.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    An enjoyable female buddy caper -- more "Outrageous Fortune" than "Thelma and Louise."
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The rapper-ever-increasingly-turned actor -- is having the time of his life, big pimp styling in a flashy wardrobe as he guts and struts.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    This fictionalized, frequently stomach-churning biography of Australian criminal Mark Chopper Read features the most bloody ear-severing scene since "Reservoir Dogs."
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Simply a pleasant diversion rather the paean to crazy-in-love classics it would so like to be.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    For the most part, it's when the women do the singing -- that Songcatcher really comes alive.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Good old-fashioned romantic entertainment, just restrained enough to skirt schmaltz.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The overlapping dialogue and the comedy of famous people playing self-variations is pure Altman (Leigh, not surprisingly, has worked in three Altman films).
    • Mr. Showbiz

    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    If you're looking for refuge from summer movie bombast, it's frequently intoxicating.

    Families already know exactly what they're in for, and they're likely to leave the multiplex high on the hum of a charming cast, sunny San Francisco locations, and a suitably happy ending.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The wrap-up's pretty charming, as are the performances, but the film's too heavy for its soufflé-ready ingredients.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    It's the kind of flourish that makes you smile -- that makes you believe in the power of movies.
