    This is a world where training wheels are called "stabilizers" and where children leave something called "mince pies" for Santa. (Um. Ew?) As a result, the occasional line will fly over your little ones' heads. But you can also expect for them to be charmed by it all.

    Being a fan of the character is not a prerequisite for enjoying the film.

    In reality, in this age of cookie-cutter entertainment, the movie's success probably is because of Cody's unconventional script. This isn't a silly, disposable, rom-com -- and thank goodness for that.

    It's provocative stuff, and The Yes Men approach it with a wicked sense of humor.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Gets considerable gas from the fact that Bateman, Sudeikis and Day so convincingly play three idiotic pals. The real fun, though, is in the fantastic supporting cast.

    A refreshingly original take on the comic book adaptation.

    The result is a movie that is about as riveting as -- well, as your average Robert Novak column.

    Arriving with a savage grace, director Darren Aronofsky's nightmare-come-to-life Black Swan cements his reputation not only as one of the more daring filmmakers of his generation, but also as an actor's director of the first order.

    • 75 Mike Scott
    Ends up being a reasonably gripping story of political intrigue, international corruption and one woman's determined fight for justice.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    A punch-drunk tale whose fitful ramble from Jerry Springer-style family seaminess to "Rocky"-like triumph is elevated enormously by knockout performances.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Brilliant in its simplicity, as he turns the floor over to the three masters with this simple instruction: The guitar. Discuss.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Only one of a number of recent immigrant tales to hit theaters, but with its blend of sweet humor and topical relevance, it's one of the more compelling -- and surprising -- in some time.
    • 72 Metascore

    McGlynn's film clocks in at just a shade under two hours, which normally would be a little long for a documentary. In this case, the length not only is warranted but welcomed.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    What it lacks in style, however, it more than makes up for in substance, as Shearer -- as smart as he is funny -- has assembled a vital and admirably accessible post-mortem on Hurricane Katrina.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    The movie is quietly affecting, as Rush offers a moving and rewarding yarn about the need to move on in the face of personal tragedy, and about the strength of human connections.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Boasting a rock-solid academic architecture, Bhutto is a film bursting at the seams with gravitas.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    The kind of indie gem that doesn't come around nearly often enough -- and, when they do, often not enough people go to see them.

    • 75 Mike Scott
    The engine that really makes Crazy Stupid Love go is the same one that has made Ficarra and Requa's films to this point so appealing: While they thrust their characters into outrageous situations, they always keep things grounded in real, relatable emotion.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    There are moments when the freak-show elements of the film threaten to overpower its message, but that message is such a fascinating one -- and the debate an important one as well -- that The Elephant in the Living Room manages to overcome them.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    All in all, Nichols ends up with a richly drawn, and at times disturbing, portrait of one man's descent into madness.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Manages to overcome its flaws and become a charming love letter to love itself -- and a pitch-perfect V-Day date film to boot.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    The whole thing is kind of comforting in a damn-the-torpedoes, laugh-at-what-scares-you-most kind of way.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    If you're a mom or dad bringing your own little primates to the movie, that's a good thing.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Tony Scott pushes all the right buttons, crafting a worthy -- and in many ways, a superior -- update.

    Without the fantastic performances from Gandolfini, Stewart and Leo, it wouldn't hold together nearly as well as it does.

    Their story, as told by Pooley, also is a touching and quietly meaningful one, built around themes of tolerance, self-acceptance and unconditional love.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    The fact that there are so many good comic bits here allowed Kasdan to assemble a great comic cast.
    • 60 Metascore

    The Beaver also has a tendency to slip around as it finds its footing. But then the powerful third act comes and Foster, with Gibson's help, hits it home.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    An up-tempo and upbeat concert documentary that celebrates, rather than mourns, the last hurrah of a pop-culture touchstone.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mike Scott
    Spurlock banks on his charm and likability -- and it's that charm and likability that make The Greatest Movie Ever Sold so much fun to watch.
