    The silly, very romantic movie pretends to tell the whole truth about the meeting, mating, splitting and reconnecting of Kate and William.

    The show is not as good as Woods makes it, but not as bad as some of the new shows.

    This new series [is] often very good and just as often very dull.

    Siberia can be pretty annoying with the shaky single-camera and fake reality premise and all--but then it picks up in the last ten minutes when things go horribly wrong and the best character in the bunch gets killed off.

    Suspend disbelief and you’ll have fun, but believe and you’re in trouble.

    When Vinny is one-on-one with his guests, as he says at the opening, he isn’t Jay Leno. But he is pretty funny.

    "E-Ring" is sometimes kind of silly, sometimes tightly drawn, and sometimes it's fun.

    Combine[s] the tension of the boardroom in "The Apprentice," the machinations of "Survivor," the tears of a Dr. Phil cry-athon, and the tonnage of a Weight Watchers meeting. [20 Oct 2004]

    The chemistry between Winchester and Chirisa is great and very believeable, which goes to the acting ability of both men. It's not easy to make relationships seem real in this out-there fantasy.

    For reasons too obvious to bother with, NBC managed to take a really terrific and fun premiere and somehow let it morph over the following episodes into just another take-it-or-leave-it show.

    It seems to have been boiled down to its simplest ingredients.

    You don't have to be nuts to love Mental, which is a kind of schizophrenic "House"--but you do have to be willing to suspend disbelief to the point of, well, insanity.

    What I like about this series is that it is anti-slick and anti-pretty.

    The thing that does give this show its grounding is the acting. Dancy is a perfect, tortured soul; Fishburne is everyman with a brain; and Mads Mikkelsen is perfectly named. What is lacking, though, is any respite from the darkness.

    It remains to be seen if Underemployed will have time to spread its dramatic wings and shake off its ham-fisted preachiness--but it's off to a promising, if predictable, start.

    [An] absolutely laugh-out-loud-till-you-squirt-beer-from-your-nose [show].

    A show with a promising premise that could be a winner.

    Pushing Daisies is fanciful and fun, but sometimes pushes the daisies too hard.

    Despite being loving and sweet, the documentary feels four decades too late and a million dollars short if Cher was really serious about why she made this movie--to help Holt achieve her life-long dream of a singing career.

    There's never a light moment to let you reflect on the violence that you've just witnessed, which brings "Brotherhood" back to the level of every not-great gangster flick that's ever been.

    Not so happily, "Happy Town," is even more clichéd -- like "Scream."... [But] after you sit through a few episodes, it does get better, and the first-rate cast is a pleasure to watch.

    While Swank and Blethyn make everything they’re in more remarkable for their presence, the movie plays more like a based-on-fact Lifetime flick than an HBO work of fiction.

    The premise is at least interesting.

    The funniest thing about the show is that people think he's legit in every single persona. I personally couldn't believe that Edwin Meese, former Attorney General Dick Thornberg or General Brent Scowcroft would be idiotic enough to be lured into a formal interview with a guy in a giant yellow track suit.

    Since I myself am a sucker for a true-crime cheesefest, I was loving this movie until I was rudely reminded by my friend Denise that, "This is neither good sleaze nor serious true crime! It's half a satire, and half a true crime movie!"

    Gummer's a good actress in a mediocre sitcom; one that skirts the line between grown-up series and one that will appeal to The CW's young-girl demographic.

    See, despite the fact that Lights Out has every one of these boxing cliches in spades, it also has that thing that makes all great boxing flicks memorable: great acting and characters you pull for despite the fact that you know you're being manipulated.

    Much of this is tediously drawn out, with crazy fly-overs between Biblical Chapters that may make you think it’s “Survivor: Holy Lands,” which, of course, it is.... Things really pick up when Jesus shows up.

    Chiklis chews scenery--in a good, very good way--and Quaid is terrific, but both deserve far better than what they're given here.

    Fox's newest buddy series relies too much on the '70's-style moustache of detective Dan Stark (Bradley Whitford) and too little on the chemistry he has (or doesn't) with his partner, Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks). Not that this is a bad thing, since the moustache is a better character than either of the above.
