    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    The movie telegraphs its intentions too early and relies too much on a single actor, Johnny Depp, to achieve its emotional force.

    The movie makes an excellent primer about the world of stock car racing for fans and nonfans alike. In 48 fast minutes, the Simon Wincer-directed film gives you a genuine sense of this particular sport, its rigorous demands and the fan base that supports it with such wildly enthusiastic devotion.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 10 Kirk Honeycutt
    The film doesn't know what it wants to be -- reality programming pushed to the max or a satire of reality TV? -- but it winds up as an exercise in the rankest sort of cynicism.

    Not only (Kaufman's) most accessible and romantic screenplay, it's his most complete. The third act works like a charm and pulls all his themes, characters and conflicts together beautifully.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    Clearly, much care and intelligence have been lavished on discouraging, routine material.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Kirk Honeycutt
    Smith stumbles setting up dramatic confrontations and strains credibility a time or two with implausible moments.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    Where the best Coen brothers comedy is a matter of finely tuned tone, diction, attitude and visual rhythms, everything in The Ladykillers feels out of kilter. With Tom Hanks delivering -- arguably -- one of the most perplexing performances of his career.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 20 Kirk Honeycutt
    Alas, this is just film ugly.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Kirk Honeycutt
    Doillon never lets his characters slide into cliche. They act and react from a wealth of contradictory impulses and long-standing prejudices in this masterful tale of frustrated desire.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Kirk Honeycutt
    Standard-issue superhero movie -- except that writer-director Guillermo del Toro, taking his cue from "Hellboy" comic book creator Mike Mignola, brings a wicked sense of humor to this particular monster mash.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Kirk Honeycutt
    An unremarkable romantic comedy that gives short shrift to both romance and comedy.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Kim Ki-duk keeps dialogue to a minimum and actions simple in what is virtually a two-character piece. Humor arrives organically, often resulting in hearty laughs.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    A complex and often compelling melodrama, at times almost verging on soap opera.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    A respectable and at times an exciting film that should appeal to males of all ages, history buffs and -- yes, it's inevitable -- patriots.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Kirk Honeycutt
    Nothing un-beguiles a fairy tale more than forced whimsy and labored magic, which is precisely what plagues Ella Enchanted.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Kirk Honeycutt
    Things spin swiftly out of control with uneven acting and misfired physical gags.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    A dramatic thriller with a large cast playing the hell out of some very juicy roles. Nieman's script shuffles nimbly among an array of colorful characters and offers unexpected twists that keep you off-balance.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Kirk Honeycutt
    Kill Bill-Vol. 2 puts to shame doubts entertained about aesthetic strategies or structural imbalance provoked by "Kill Bill-Vol. 1." Now that the entirety of Quentin Tarantino's epic revenge melodrama is on view, "Kill Bill" emerges as a brilliant, invigorating work, one to muse over for years to come.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Kirk Honeycutt
    Veteran TV director Michael Lembeck slides the movie into a sitcom mode that only further deadens the thin material. While Vardalos and Collette shine in the musical numbers, why didn't he bother to give the musical sequences a bit of pizzazz?
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Kirk Honeycutt
    At roughly the halfway point, the movie turns into a low-budget gangster picture, which sacrifices character and themes to the kind of action mayhem all too commonplace in studio thrillers.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Kirk Honeycutt
    Does a good job of reviving stale material. Thanks to a snappy script by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa and an effervescent performance by Jennifer Garner, this romantic comedy has a buoyant personality.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    The film is always watchable, and the confrontations contain undeniable edgy excitement. But even if this weren't a remake, it would be a remake. Hollywood filmmakers have fished these waters so thoroughly that it's virtually impossible to land a big catch.

    Although the pace is slow, "Twilight" is a moving account of a family in crisis and the love that provides a short window of happiness for the father.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Kirk Honeycutt
    For comedy, director Peter Howitt relies on halfhearted slapstick as the script contains little of the sharp dialogue one might expect from a script written at least in part by Harling ("Steel Magnolias," "Soapdish").
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Kirk Honeycutt
    Results in an edgy comedy, where laughs stem at times from uncomfortable situations. In other words, Mean Girls lives up to its title.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Kirk Honeycutt
    This exercise in style and tongue-in-cheek melodrama from Canada's iconoclastic Guy Maddin will be lionized by admirers for its audacity, but will wear thin for many audience members, who will find it tedious and repetitive.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 60 Kirk Honeycutt
    Cheerfully disconnected from the real world, bearing a great resemblance to screwball comedies of old.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    This creature feature is exhilarating fun, a richly designed and often quite funny re-exploration of the movie past.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Kirk Honeycutt
    A complete wipeout.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Kirk Honeycutt
    A protracted and uninvolving affair in which men battle over issues that audiences may struggle to find compelling, and no central figure emerges to take command of the film.
