    This little serio-comedy contains absolutely nothing that warrants big-screen release. It's lit like TV, acted like TV and staged like TV.

    A big, loud, sometimes clever, often dumb behemoth of a movie.

    It's frustrating and still oddly likable.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 67 Kim Morgan
    Exciting, gory, funny and, like much of anime, a bit cheesy.

    Basic essentially is a fun movie, surprise ending and all. To take it too seriously is to miss the point. Travolta is charming, his performance recapturing the old charisma.

    A slick disappointment -- though there's much unintentional humor to be enjoyed.

    Once you lose yourself in Ruiz's stunning achievement -- a wonderfully acted, beautifully realized vision of Proust -- you'll be enchanted.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Filled with too many issues -- along with young motherhood, street gangs, city life, sex, peer pressure, grief and, oh yes, dancing, which is nearly lost in so many poorly written subplots.

    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Though stilted and emotionally vacant at times, it's still an entertaining and absorbing experience.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Fails to be resonant and, more important, scary.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    With very little dialogue and through what's essentially a gimmick, we come truly to like these guys.
    • 54 Metascore

    The film isn't so much a demanding character study as it is a lot of pretty parts pushed together.

    Judging by the beautiful photography of Salvatore Totino, Howard knows what a Western should look like. But the thrills suggested by the trailers, in which the picture is presented almost like a frightening supernatural horror story, are nowhere to be seen.

    So what is the picture saying? With its uneven tone, flat direction (on bad-looking digital video) and varied performances, very little.

    Works as pure escapist entertainment, but it's on the cusp of being smarter -- making it all the more frustrating.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    So action-packed from start to finish that the final result is grating rather than thrilling.

    There are movies that are made for the big screen, and movies that are made for the small screen; Passionada is the latter type.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 30 Kim Morgan
    A tiresome, hammy and ultimately annoying portrait of the artist as a young drunk.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Scattered and silly. If it evokes any strong feelings from you, it will probably be hunger -- the food all looks so good.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    Amusing, funny (intentionally and unintentionally -- it's dubbed, so many lines come out ludicrous) and, by the ending, exciting.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 58 Metascore
    • 67 Kim Morgan
    This is a movie where you can just sit back and revel in it, warts and all.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 67 Kim Morgan
    With a less popcorn-friendly cast and some cheesy special effects, this is a surprisingly engaging, sometimes foolish but often roughly intelligent film.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 83 Kim Morgan
    It is off-putting at first, then refreshing, then downright touching. In short, it works.

    If you simply love Vogue magazine, you'll love 8 Women just as much as the cinematically educated. This breezy entertainment often feels like an exquisitely photographed fashion layout come to life.

    Stinky, boring, aggressively unfunny picture.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 67 Kim Morgan
    Has two other notable things going for it: the brilliant Christopher Walken and a soundtrack packed with songs by the drippy power ballad band Bad Company.

    Watching Rocks shows, we know he's sharper than the average actor. But watching him flail and play funny in movies that aren't as smart as him is simply depressing. Someone give this man a good role. And please, let him do a few more takes -- these scenes can't be his best efforts.

    Groove seems to be less about what it is chronicling than what its attempting to decipher.

    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Suffers from poor comic timing and defective romantic pacing.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Short on both life and laughs.
