    May be Hitchcock on holiday, but that's a perfectly enjoyable vacation.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    The kind of college movie people will be quoting for years.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    Never less than dazzling to look at, and the scorching humor keeps it alive from scene to scene.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    The bleakness of the material ought to make Ratcatcher a depressing experience, yet Ramsay's power as an image-crafter transforms this grim universe.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Robert Horton
    Kate Hudson's accent is spot-on, and she brings her megawattage to good use on the Gershwin standard, "The Man I Love."
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Sometimes feels like an acting class gone berserk, with Penn indulging his high-powered cast
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    A piece of fluff that can be enjoyed without guilt.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    A small, scruffy, but agreeably energized comedy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    A crowd pleaser, but there's something a bit prim and pre-determined about its conclusions.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Quick and funny, and a refreshing break from period-film stuffiness.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Takes an easy target and turns it into something naggingly weird.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Scott Thomas and Penn finally develop a bit of unlikely chemistry, aided by the Hitchcockian atmosphere. I found myself rooting for these foolish, pampered, naïve people, and rooting for the movie as well.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    There's something thin about the picture-both in its ideas and its visual texture.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    An acerbically comic fable.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Primary Colors is by turns hugely entertaining and resoundingly square, beginning as a raucous black comedy about political mechanics and ending as a sober-sided morality tale.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    One of those hybrid projects: a major studio film, big star, homely storyline, but tempered by an indie director working in his own idiosyncratic style.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    For the most part, a delight.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    There isn't a sensible reason to recommend this movie, except that its melange of clichés and conventions is embarrassingly enjoyable.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Barrymore's sunny energy pushes the movie along, but halfway through you realize there just isn't that much to push.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    I'm not even sure the movie makes sense at times, yet Campion's offbeat rhythms and eye for startling images always made me happy to be looking at the screen.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Tight and quick-moving, the film scores its points and gets on with it.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    While this movie is no great advance in cinema comedy, it is rewardingly silly.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Nearly the perfect balance between straight-faced pulp action and amused wonder at the outlandish world of comic books.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Like it or hate it, Titanic lives and breathes as a piece of pure cinema.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Feels like a first draft, in need of toning, pruning, and a little old-fashioned discipline. As an outline, the picture is full of possibilities.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Something rare: a mess of a movie that is somehow infectious, and infectious not despite the mess, but because of it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    The heroism and the tigers and the epic grandeur all leave behind the flavor of cynicism.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    More complicated, more outrageous, less controlled in every way. But its owes its power to that earlier, greater film.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    If it is never really as profound as it seems to think it is, American Beauty is consistently entertaining, and it earns points simply for acknowledging that all may not be perfect in the current boom years.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    The picture has an appropriately grungy sense of place.
