    De Villa has created a truthful representation of a colorful community.

    The problem lies with the paucity of sizzle between the romantic leads, Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. They just don't look like they're having any fun together, particularly the bony Zellweger, who has trouble filling out the wow-worthy ensembles and perpetually looks like she's sucking on a lemon.

    Harmless, if slightly hyperactive, fun.

    The plot is thin as consomme, and the thudding score is distracting, but the heartfelt storytelling and Michael Bertl's disarming cinematography make this a food film to savor.

    Enough SpongeBob-meets-Monty-Python silliness to give adults a kick as well.

    Apart from the slightly sanitized look of Reagan-era Harlem, this raw ghetto drama rings true, from the smooth dialogue to the unaffected performances of the central actors.

    When the world gets too big and scary, the Hundred Acre Wood remains a clearly delineated comfort zone.

    When the Powerpuff Girls blink those soulful dinner-plate peepers, you could forgive them anything - even their movie's wafer-thin excuse for a plot.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A sensual performance from Abbass buoys the flimsy story.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    An energetic, feel-good blend of comedy, romance and benign drama -- with a side dish of social commentary -- that works despite its strict adherence to the culture clash/generation gap formula.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It actually works as a sometimes funny, occasionally scandalous, but mostly involving narrative.

    It's not surprising that This Thing of Ours -- the title refers to the literal translation of La Cosa Nostra -- rings with authenticity and solid acting.

    Along with co-writer Emmanuele Bernhein, Ozon...has crafted a contemplative blend of fantasy and reality that illuminates the mysteries of the creative process.
    • 51 Metascore

    It's a chaste "Austin Powers," a less ridiculous "Casino Royale," a more subtle "Spy Hard" — in other words, yet another James Bond parody.

    Diva du jour Beyoncé Knowles may be the draw, but the real star of The Fighting Temptations is the sensational gospel soundtrack.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Winterbottom's bold film, its gritty visuals offset by Dario Marianelli's lavish score, makes real the desperate lengths that refugees -- those running from poverty as well as dange -- will go to.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Delivers one of those classic movie moments in which two screen legends go toe to toe, both barrels metaphorically blazing.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Makes an earnest stab at illustrating the hardships and sacrifices humanitarian workers contend with - but in the end, all the suffering merely forms an amorphous backdrop for a Harlequin romance.

    Occasionally stagy and flat, "Die" is worth seeing for Busch's grand performance, which won him a Special Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    The meta jokes come thick and fast - some clunk, but there's no time to mourn - and the references are far from limited to the Warner Bros. world (at one point, Bugs exclaims, "Whaddya know - I found Nemo!").

    Bell has added unexpected shadings to what could have been simply a sordid tale of highway prostitution, gradually revealing surprises to the characters that keep a murmur of unease thrumming throughout.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Keaton's overamped girlishness, and the adolescent shenanigans she engages in, make a mockery of this overlong romantic comedy's stance as a celebration of mature love.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    This genre-busting hybrid is a scattershot affair - bad jokes land with a thud that seems to echo, but the winning ones prompt hearty laughs.

    The film is ultimately a one-man show -- and when that man is the singularly crafty Depp, it's hard to look away.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Smarter than your average serial-killer movie, thanks to unusually fleshed-out characters inhabited by a high- pedigree cast.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    If you can overlook its TV-episode look, occasional lapses in logic and detours into lurid overkill, this old-school psychological thriller, which marries a tracking-the-serial-killer narrative with occult themes, is a creepy diversion.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Cadigan is honest enough to leave in a disturbing scene in which he talks about the "violent imagery" in his head and fantasizes about using a kitchen knife on his mother, before breaking down in tears. It's raw stuff.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Disaster movies, from "The Poseidon Adventure" to "Towering Inferno," are impossible to take seriously and "Day" is no exception - it's simply a fast-moving pageant of end-of-the-world eye candy.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A cheaply made, occasionally repetitive, but passionately argued documentary.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Uniformly excellent performances keep this destabilizing tale ticking, yet one can't help wishing Hollywood had combined this cast and these timely themes with a little bit of imagination to come up with something fresh.
