    A modestly entertaining ride.

    This bed-swapping crime story is ultimately too protracted, but Piñeyro's direction is richly atmospheric, full of noir shadows and strong period detail.
    • Mr. Showbiz

    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The wrap-up's pretty charming, as are the performances, but the film's too heavy for its soufflé-ready ingredients.

    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.

    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."
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 36 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Good old-fashioned romantic entertainment, just restrained enough to skirt schmaltz.
    • Mr. Showbiz

    Hits the wall and runs off the rails. They should've stuck to shtick.
    • 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
    Billed cleverly as a comedy from the heart that goes for the throat. If only Brooks had had the guts to avoid the schmaltz.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 52 Metascore
    • 59 Kevin Maynard
    Affectionately skewers the age of polyester pants.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 59 Kevin Maynard
    An amiable but contrived bit of blarney.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 59 Kevin Maynard
    Engagingly silly sub-"Moonlighting"-style banter.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 59 Kevin Maynard
    Despite good performances and moments of spectacle, it seems to go on longer than the Cultural Revolution.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 38 Metascore
    • 59 Kevin Maynard
    A bit too bloodless to howl about.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 59 Kevin Maynard
    In its attempts to chart a young girl's journey from innocence to experience, The Invisible Circus ends up having all the heft of a Nancy Drew mystery decked out in a tie-dyed T-shirt and peasant skirt.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    It's a wonderful reminder of the importance of music in the movies.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    Fans starving for some song and dance celluloid may be satiated, but this movie version really shows the material's age.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    Covers some bases, but it feels like the Cliffs Notes version of a grander epic.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    Considerably less fun than a marathon of Star Search episodes.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    It's amiable enough, but the only real opportunity here is to see Walken step out of the shadows.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    A seven-course melodrama.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 58 Kevin Maynard
    For all its wit and sharp casting, State and Main is way too pleased with itself to be funny or endearing.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 57 Kevin Maynard
    A detective story without a solution and a coming-of-ager without discernable characters.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 57 Kevin Maynard
    An audacious but underconceived blend of fiction and documentary that questions the idea of race and identity in America.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 52 Metascore
    • 55 Kevin Maynard
    There's nothing remotely bizarre about this boy meets girl meets boy tale.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 55 Kevin Maynard
    Writer-director Harmony Korine seems more interested in churning your stomach than in warming your heart.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 55 Kevin Maynard
    On the whole, this documentary is best-suited to hardcore fans.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 47 Metascore
    • 55 Kevin Maynard
    As classic romantic comedy goes, it ain't no "Tootsie."
    • 69 Metascore
    • 54 Kevin Maynard
    Only Elaine May shines, in a weird and wonderful turn. Her loopy character has such a struck-by-lightning demeanor that she's always delightfully off in her own comic orbit even in the tritest of scenes.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 54 Kevin Maynard
    Badly photographed, clumsily edited, and lacking any discernable cinematic style.
