    Phoenix gives an electric performance as amoral Army supply clerk Ray Elwood.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Suffers from an air of frosty detachment and a disappointingly stiff performance from Jagger, who also provides an unnecessary voice-over narration.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Less of a "You go, girl" manifesto than its title would suggest.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It's a chaste "Austin Powers," a less ridiculous "Casino Royale," a more subtle "Spy Hard" — in other words, yet another James Bond parody.
    • 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.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Harmless, if slightly hyperactive, fun.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Much of the movie's gentle charm comes from Mehta, the director's younger brother, making his acting debut.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A cheaply made, occasionally repetitive, but passionately argued documentary.
    • 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!").

    • 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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It's mostly a political thriller, contingent on a love story. It's kind of noirish, subtly humorous and intermittently confusing.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Walking a tightrope between high farce and emotional truth, writer-director Gabriele Muccino's breathlessly paced Italian comedy The Last Kiss manages to stay just this side of melodrama.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Instructive, cathartic or just too painful? You decide.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Nair makes Vanity Fair an elegant showcase for an unforgettable heroine.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A weird hybrid of cloning thriller and futuristic love story, with hints of "The Godfather" and "Ice Castles" - and it wears its disjointed nature like a badge of honor.
    • 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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It's a simple tale of father-and-son bonding that director Huo Jianqi injects with a quiet power, and it benefits greatly from the gorgeous lushness of its backdrop.

    Diva du jour Beyoncé Knowles may be the draw, but the real star of The Fighting Temptations is the sensational gospel soundtrack.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    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.
    • 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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Wants to be an epic in the mold of "Saving Private Ryan," but it's hindered by its modest budget.
