    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").

    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.

    About Lustig's direction. Badly employing all kinds of tricks like alternating film speed, jump cuts, and various color tints, she ultimately overpowers her actors and does in her own film.

    It's the kind of flourish that makes you smile -- that makes you believe in the power of movies.

    The biggest piece of supernatural hooey since estranged wife Demi Moore's "The Seventh Sign."
    • 67 Metascore
    • 68 Kevin Maynard
    Elevates the horror genre with a refreshing intelligence and humor -- too bad it's not half as good at generating scares.

    The entire ensemble is first-rate.

    Whenever Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon resorts to flying fists or soaring sword battles, the Force is definitely with it.

    A mockumentary about small-town beauty pageants that's so confidently unfunny it's DOA.

    For all its wit and sharp casting, State and Main is way too pleased with itself to be funny or endearing.

    Come Undone is the quintessential gay date at the art house.

    Captures the emptiness of small-time lives as evocatively as Peter Bogdonavich's "Last Picture Show."

    The results are both savagely funny and poignant for anyone who's ever had a friendship that felt like their only connection to the outside world.

    Just try not to smile while watching Jump Tomorrow.

    Offers effortless charm, wit, and originality in spades.

    Despite being full of Oscar-winning talent, this is still just a better-dressed, drawn-out episode of "Touched by an Angel."

    The film's a vacuous bore.

    Nolan's engrossing, backwards-ticking noir will run you so thoroughly in circles that you'll need to see it at least twice for maximum enjoyment.

    Hard to watch -- not because of its unflinching realism, but rather for its mawkish reliance on every boy hooker flick from "Midnight Cowboy" to "Johns."

    Some moviegoers are bound to take issue with the trick, "Sixth Sense"-style ending (or cynically see it coming), but The Others is mostly spooky fun, and a strong calling card for Amenabar.

    One
    Too much of a study in formalism to register deeply on an emotional level.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    Simply a pleasant diversion rather the paean to crazy-in-love classics it would so like to be.

    The most obvious casualty ends up being Jennifer Jason Leigh, an actress known for her fearless choices, who is literally pissed on for her trouble.

    Perhaps most depressingly, in pulling out all the stops for an ugly, violent climax, he (Schumacher) cheapens this vividly drawn slice of life, turning it into a tiresomely flawed, garden-variety vigilante thriller.

    Captures the embarrassment of foreplay, but it could use a few lessons in the art of seduction

    Like "Pollock," Nora is a convincing portrait of the intersection between creative genius and crazy, all-consuming love.

    There's nothing remotely bizarre about this boy meets girl meets boy tale.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    A watery cocktail of second-rate, Ab Fab-style bitchery and shameless schmaltz.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 43 Kevin Maynard
    "Footloose" meets "The Full Monty" in Bootmen, a cliché-ridden tap dance drama.
