    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Tight and quick-moving, the film scores its points and gets on with it.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Horton
    Quick and funny, and a refreshing break from period-film stuffiness.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Gibson's performance is robbed of his customary humor, and he flounders around in search of the character's core.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Little of this is plausible, but it is beguiling.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    This relationship might be strong enough to carry an observational novel, but the movie feels like it's missing something.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Looks like a very cheerful and imaginative accident.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    When the film is sexy, it's truly sexy, assuming that you believe sexiness has something to do with the exploration of a connection between people.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Enough well-conceived jokes that the whole thing works very nicely.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Hughley and Jones have an explosively comic chemistry together; her kooky, open-faced looks are a counterpoint to his whipcrack improvisations.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    If it weren't so pushy about selling itself, The Dish might have been a very special movie.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Bulworth shoots along with great vigor, and its non-politically correct jabs are occasionally exhilarating.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    The movie gives us episodes from her life, and although some of them are charming and all of them well-played, I occasionally found myself wondering why I should want to be interested in this person.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    I still feel pushed around by Darabont's mysticism, and his overbearing sense of grandness; a little bit of the Mile goes a long way.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Julia Roberts owns this sweet-natured film.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    A reminder of why Bullock became a movie star in the first place.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Works best as a free-flowing essay.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    (Tyler's) voice is still mall American, and Onegin's rejection of her is nowhere near as puzzling or as tragic as it's supposed to be.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Good enough in spots to make you wish it could have sustained its campier inclinations.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    The problem is that the motion picture around these individual stunts is patently a committee-made artifact.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    The storm is the reason to see the movie.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    For me, Trixie finds its own peculiar groove, and-buoyed by a compulsively watchable actress-folds neatly into the off-center work of a distinctive American director.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    When it counts, this film is absolutely successful.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Worth a look, even if it doesn't quite find the internal logic it seems to be searching for.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    It's all safe and sane and bland.

    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Feels more like a backyard relaxation than a movie.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A difficult time rising above the level of a reasonably nice TV-movie.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A very silly film.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A collection of movie situations, recognizable from the films of Coppola and Scorsese, with a less obvious debt to Kazan.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    The movie itself gets scattered.
