    The performances by the attractive ensemble cast are uniformly solid.

    Strikingly photographed, Maelstrom, which explores its nautical themes in non-linear fashion, is not for all tastes. But I, for one, was hooked by this fish's tale.

    An offer you shouldn't refuse: It's laugh-out-loud, side-splitting funny.

    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Genuinely scary, exquisitely shot -- and very well-acted.

    Overall, it's a hand-tailored job in a marketplace filled with off-the-rack movies.

    English-language remakes of foreign films are usually suspect, but Tortilla Soup is the exception that proves the rule - a flavorful comedy about a food-centric Latino family in Los Angeles.

    An entertaining documentary.

    Does offer solid laughs, engaging performances and a captivating setting.

    One of our best actors, Turturro surpasses his past fine work as Alexander Luzhin.

    Plays like a very good TV movie. Short on visual flair and starpower, Thirteen Days is not the definitive story of the Cuban missile crisis, but it's an engrossing historical lesson nonetheless.

    An utterly beguiling tale.
    • 55 Metascore

    Lively, well-acted and directed with assurance.

    Light summer fun with a Flemish accent.

    This wacky former Andy Warhol superstar more than holds your interest in an offbeat documentary.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Hilarious French farce.

    Hrebejik directs with a sure hand, deftly balancing comedy and drama in a most involving and satisfying manner.

    It's still easily the funniest movie of the year.
    • 75 Metascore

    Some of the plot twists don't really stand up to close scrutiny, but the sometimes over-the-top Joy Ride plows through them with such joyful glee, you don't really care.

    Delightfully quirky.

    Butterfly doesn't require much knowledge of history to appreciate, but it really isn't suitable for very young audiences either.

    Well worth seeing for the terrific performances.

    The first half of Scotland, PA is by far the funniest, with witty dialogue, hilariously ugly period fashions and hairstyles.

    Morgan never reaches the heights the film probably would have hit if had been directed by Tim Burton, whose style is frequently evoked -- especially Shirley Walker's playful score, which seems channeled directly from Burton's frequent collaborator Danny Elfman.

    In an era when documentaries are looking more and more glossy, it's almost refreshing to see the austere approach taken by veteran Frederick Wiseman.

    Thanks to Scott's charismatic Roger and Eisenberg's sweet nephew, Roger Dodger is one of the most compelling variations on "In the Company of Men."

    The best dance movie since "Flashdance."

    The two male actors are very good, but Juuso is particularly amusing and touching as the earthy heroine.

    Doesn't quite reach the heights - though it does plumb the depths - of its hugely popular predecessor. But it will have an enormous, appreciative audience doubled over with belly-busting laughs.

    Paved with such good intentions and talent that it's sad to report this lavishly mounted gangster epic - the most serious-minded Hollywood film of the season - doesn't come close to living up to expectations.
