    The result is a gutsy little picture and a nice slice of life.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Hardly perfect or fully successful, but it's strange and strangely beautiful -- a unique work of art.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Black comedies are rare enough. Birthday Girl is a member of an even rarer species, the black romantic comedy.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Adams sparkles with quick-mindedness and verbal agility. This is a worthy and underused talent.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A modest but charming romantic comedy.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Mature, thoughtful and occasionally dazzling.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Has some faults, but it manages to keep its audience either angry or jumpy from start to finish.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Has a lot going for it -- but too much going against it to be a clear-cut winner.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    (Washington) raises it to the level of importance with an acting job that's one unbroken chain of intense emotion.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's scary. It's well-acted. It's filmed with a degree of flash and elegance.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    One of the most quietly powerful endings in recent memory.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A fairly wonderful movie about fathers and sons and the mystery of time.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Aims to do nothing but please, and it accomplishes its modest aim with charm and intelligence.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Angel Eyes is the rare film that presents a family dynamic as demented as ones we know from life.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Not the kind of movie anyone will remember at Oscar time. But no one who sees it will forget it.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    At all times, the audience believes that it's watching something that really could happen.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's so wonderfully silly, coarse and down-to-Earth that its radiance sneaks up only over time.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    There's something heartening about a film that aspires to do nothing but entertain -- and does.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    In place of the tension, climax and easy resolution of the old "Perry Mason'' show, A Civil Action offers murkiness, bitter successes and frustration.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A good movie that has been sitting in a film can for two years waiting for a miracle. The miracle came -- Suvari's sudden popularity.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's fascinating.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A tense, intelligent and sober film.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's a winning little movie about two people who get together, though they have no business getting together.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A rare film about the class and educational divide that can happen even within families.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Some of the dialogue in Made was improvised, and the comic invention at work here -- Vaughn's and Favreau's -- make Made into a rough gem.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    When Travolta plays, everybody has a good time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Much of the film is so wrenching there's no time for idle thoughts.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    One of the pleasures of Deterrence is that it does not tell the audience what to think.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    In the most extreme moments, Thomas hits her career pinnacle.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
