    An astute, intelligent family picture, the film is a potent reminder that you can have your heart in the right place and still produce a gripping, satisfying entertainment.

    Babe: Pig in the City is tour de force filmmaking that masks its achievement in a good ripping yarn.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 90 Leonard Klady
    This is a hip, likable spin on the seasonal icon told with a deft mixture of comedy and sentimentality.

    Barrymore continues to prove herself as a performer of extraordinary range and charisma, and is simply sublime in the leading role.

    The familiar setup sparkles a little brighter here thanks to the ensemble and their deft delivery of the bitchy dialogue in Robert Harling's adaptation of the Olivia Goldsmith novel.

    Director Ken Kwapis displays a deft touch, balancing realistic elements and outsize characterizations. Pic’s unflagging pace and the unexpectedly witty script by John Hopkins and Bruce Graham complement the simplicity of this comedy construct.

    Though somewhat overplayed and coy about its destination, the film packs a helluva wallop.

    Bopha! is a heartfelt and anguished cry. Though moored in historic/geographic specificity, it is an easily understood and universal tale.

    A richly realized piece of Masterpiece Literature, director Darrell James Roodt's Cry, the Beloved Country has an admirable high polish. But more effort could have been made to address its underlying message and provide an emotional punch to equal the book's resonance.

    But where others have sunk in the mire of imitation, director Paul Anderson and writer Kevin Droney effect a viable balance between exquisitely choreographed action and ironic visual and verbal counterpoint.

    Director Bill Duke renders the period saga with passion, but lacks the sort of fluid, organic style the material requires; the film falls short of its aim for mythic proportion. Still, there's a vibrancy that's engrossing, if uneven.

    • 70 Leonard Klady
    It's a death-defying hodgepodge anchored by the complete confidence of star Carrey.
    • 46 Metascore

    Grumpier is a welcome continuation that leaves you wanting for another chapter that's as rich in humanity and fun as the initial companion pieces.
    • 58 Metascore

    Lumet never tires of exploring moral quandaries. But what separates his films from the pack is his appreciation for all perspectives.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Leonard Klady
    Director Jon Turteltaub has a smooth style suited to classic farce and knows just how to pace the material to accentuate the positive.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 70 Leonard Klady
    While emotionally intense, it's neither hurried nor charged with false drama. It's also one of the most handsome of recent films, with sterling work by cameraman John Toll and production designer Lilly Kilvert.
