    The darker this visionary film gets -- and it gets very dark -- the less comic and the more chilling it becomes. At the same time, it grows more brilliant as a view of modern society poisoned by a battering incivility or cruel exploitation that, in Leigh's view, is played out most profoundly in gender conflict. When ''Naked'' isn't beaning your brain, it's twisting a screwdriver between the wires of your nerves. [28 Jan. 1994, p.C1]

    Every hair is in place in writer-director Lawrence Kasdan's epic-length Wyatt Earp. What's missing is a heart. Yet if this large-scale western is a bore, at least it's a beautiful one. [24 Jun 1994, p.C1]

    As Westerns go, Silverado delivers elaborate gun-fighting scenes, legions of galloping horses, stampeding cattle, a box canyon, covered wagons, tons of creaking leather and even a High Noonish duel. How it manages to run the gamut of cowboy movie elements without getting smart-alecky is intriguing. But on the important issues, like real character development, Silverado flakes apart. [10 Jul 1985, p.52]

    Look Who's Talking plays baby-picture cute almost beyond the limits of the tolerable, but it has enough spark and intelligence to be a very likable, occasionally riotous romantic comedy. [13 Oct 1989, p.E1]

    For a big, floppy, silly movie that is in many ways the epitome of throwaway entertainment, Twins has its charms. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito make it seem they had so much fun making this flabby comedy that the fun becomes infectious.

    • 50 Peter Stack
    This slight, predictable comedy has appealing moments.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    So forced and contrived in delivery that it's tedious. That's not good when the intention is to be audacious.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    A sappy, muddled production that misses the jarring tone of the autobiographical book by Susanna Kaysen on which it is based.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Though predictable, isn't half bad.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    It is aimed primarily at children, and its affectionate treatment of animals is certain to please most of them.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    An unblushing sex farce often so raw it might make even fairly open-minded people feel a bit uncomfortable.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Overall, the film sparkles. But it's a curiously unaffecting sparkle, an example, almost, of how the special effects stole Christmas.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    The music and wizard DJs in Groove are better than the dopey story.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    It's a fizzle as as comedy. Still, the film has character.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    The film's constrained style keeps the drama from reaching a full boil.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Does have a certain classy charm because of its upscale setting. One could wait for the video.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Schlock, but amusing schlock.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Glitters, but it's not pure gold.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Quickly assumes an appealing mockumentary style.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    It's troubling to watch it stray and ramble as first-time director Antonio Banderas struggles to pull disparate elements together.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    A skillfully observed but never quite satisfying lesbian romantic drama.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    It's not always clear what this film is driving at, but Shiota makes the weirdness visually arresting.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Decidedly lowbrow.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Doesn't quite measure up to the extraordinary sweetness of the classic children's book by E.B. White on which it is based. But then again, how could it?
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Pleasant, ultimately sweet but never quite inspired.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    This novelty film is little more than a strung-together product reel of animation pieces put to the 3-D and IMAX test.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Among Chan devotees, it achieved cult status.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    The movie never catches fire with the emotions.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Has a certain slow, mechanical quality.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Stack
    Fast falls from interestingly loopy to tiresome.
