    Shaolin Soccer really loves what it mocks, after all, and that grandly goofy affection -- nay, joy -- for all things chop socky is purely, utterly contagious.

    A decidedly grown-up affair.

    With its cast of back-stabbing functionaries and desk jockeys, Spy Game makes the sport and hard work of espionage seem chillingly real.

    Powerful yet ambiguous.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Shot with a shaky hand-held camera, Wonderland is a sentimental fairy tale with a gritty documentary feel.

    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Returns to the wicked mix of transgression and positivity epitomized by "Pecker" and "Hairspray."
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Sweet without being saccharine and funny without being forced, the closely observed romantic comedy treats the culinary arts as a metaphor for personal healing.

    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Deliberate disorientation keeps the audience constantly off balance, and it's brilliantly effective.

    Sorry, stinging fire ants couldn't make me reveal the outcome of this witty and, yes, surprisingly suspenseful adventure.

    The wisecracks fly fast and furious
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Eminently watchable thanks to strong performances from its three leads (McKellen, Redgrave, Fraser).

    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    The spare and unsparing tone of I'll Sleep When I'm Dead makes it as existential -- and as original -- a whodunit as they come.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Poignant, heartbreaking proof that, sometimes, love is just not enough.
    • 87 Metascore

    It's enough to make your head spin, but Almodovar, whose mastery of the medium has never been more assured, gives you plenty to think about, ultimately grounding the dizzy whirl of his idiosyncratic fictional world in a story that feels not just true but universal.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Very, very funny, thanks to a lively first script by Mark O'Rowe, who has a good ear for earthy dialogue and a sense of life's absurd little synchronicities.

    Feels like a song you may have heard before, but one whose aching beauty makes it endlessly listenable.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Overflowing with madcap visual flair and following a rambling thread of a plot that seems, at times, more the product of free association than an actual script, The Triplets of Belleville is a triumph of animated style over substance.

    It's a love letter to the myriad ways, large and small, that mail handlers change lives the world over.
    • 46 Metascore

    Carrey is so gifted a physical comedian that even mediocre material shines in his talented hands, not to mention his talented feet, face, elbows, ears, hair and, ahem, derriere.

    In Sheridan's warm and glowing treatment, the moral of the story feels less like a reheated fable than like something utterly, indescribably original.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Touching, funny, unflinching and true.
    • 73 Metascore

    Super Size Me is an anti-junk-food screed that manages to entertain even as it informs and alarms.

    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Yes, it's essentially a remake of a sequel, albeit a sequel that happens to be one of the greatest horror movies ever made, but it more than surpasses the original.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    One big, fat, honking comic book of a sci-fi-martial-arts adventure flick.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    A film whose effects are as hard to wash away as blood.
