    Has just enough fairy dust to charm its target audience.

    Nair makes Vanity Fair an elegant showcase for an unforgettable heroine.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Wants to be an epic in the mold of "Saving Private Ryan," but it's hindered by its modest budget.

    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.

    • 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.

    Corcuera's unflinching documentary Back of the World is a real-life horror story told in three parts.

    McCann weaves in a somewhat toothless condemnation of a bureaucracy that forsakes the mentally ill, but Revolution # 9 works better as an inside look at one person's slide into madness -- and, more particularly, the impact of that on his loved ones.

    Khouri seems never to have met a "chick flick" cliché she didn't like, from the ubiquity of emotional telephone conversations to the lachrymose (but entirely predictable and dramatically flabby) reconciliation at the end.

    If you've come to appreciate Hal Hartley's idiosyncratic style through films like "Flirt" and "The Unbelievable Truth," his take on the monster movie genre will intrigue you. But, ultimately, disappoint you.

    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A worthy addition to the cinematic canon, which, at last count, numbered 52 different versions.
    • 58 Metascore

    The character of ZigZag is not sufficiently developed to support a film constructed around him.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Stevens has a keen sense of the absurd, but the whole thing is too forced - and his use of "rotomation" (last used in Richard Linklater's "Waking Life") to give a Timothy Leary-swirl to key dramatic moments winds up looking incongruous.

    Unfortunately, the vehicle chosen for the corn-rowed cutie's Hollywood coming-out party is pretty lame.
    • 40 Metascore

    Without Branagh's pitch-perfect comedic skills the entire movie could have been crushed under the avalanche of quips and wisecracks tumbling from Kalesniko's too-clever-by-half pen.

    No light leavens the ashen wash of writer-director Tim Blake Nelson's relentlessly downbeat Holocaust drama The Grey Zone. None.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Although deft editing provides neat segues, "Safety" suffers from a case of too many dramas, too little time. Characters are given no chance to develop and, too often, their behavior turns on a dime, hurtling off into a parallel universe of extreme acts.

    The film - dimly lit and with an ominous soundtrack that verges on overkill - is largely a showcase for the heavy-lidded Renner.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Has laugh-out-loud moments of inspired idiocy. The problem is that this one-joke skit (done first and better by Britain's Ali G) has been given the Hamburger Helper treatment and stretched to feature length.

    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    The majority of Dickie Roberts winds up looking like a tame episode of the "Brady Bunch" -- spiked with Spade-esque crudity.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Only really little tykes will find the surplus of pratfalls and poo and fart jokes a hoot.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A skin-deep examination of a shallow lifestyle that draws a conclusion so logical it's almost superfluous.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A cinematic petit four.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A thumping soundtrack, including David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" and Pink Floyd's "Us and Them," fuels this high-energy look at a pack of underdogs who sowed the seeds for today's extreme sports craze.

    Another big, dumb action movie in the vein of "XXX," The Transporter is riddled with plot holes big enough for its titular hero to drive his sleek black BMW through.

    The tiny stage can barely contain Reno's gale-force personality, as she paces and rants a stream-of-conscious monologue.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Hokey, overstuffed plot and a messily hand-stitched, often illogical script.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    All the elements are in place for an entertaining murder mystery, but as Bigelow meanders aimlessly back and forth through time, the plot becomes increasingly water-logged.
    • 70 Metascore

    Purists will probably have a conniption at the mere idea of messing with the form, but the worst thing about Jacquot's post-modern treatment is that its incongruity wrenches you out of the story.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A harmless celebration of idiocy that is the cinematic equivalent of an overeager, block-headed puppy chasing its tail.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    From the incessant rain that blurs the joyless Boston setting to the mysterious decision to make a brunette Hudson look as plain as possible, it's an evanescent fancy devoid of sparkle.
