    Schwarz lacks the writing chops to adequately embed the character’s predictable learning curve into a richer narrative fabric, but Dunne’s perf is pitch-perfect.

    Slicker, funnier and more professional than its predecessor, State Property 2, with Damon Dash at its helm tones down the original.

    In its reliance on emotionally loaded voiceover and its disconcertingly direct appeals for support, Len Morris' old-fashioned docu seems more designed for fund-raising pitches than theatrical release.

    In striving simultaneously to cover the transplanted rap scene, sample a wide range of groups, and give an unbiased picture of Cuban society, helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who have hitherto worked in short-form, blur the overall shape of their picture.

    In scope, depth, rhythm and gags, "Pizzas" seems best suited to the small screen.

    Name cast, occasional deft touches and nifty contrast between the two locales cannot overcome script's terminal awkwardness.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    As fascinating as it is frustrating.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Keeps grimly glued to its one-note premise, relieved by nary a glimmer of humor, surprise or personality.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Far from encouraging "Survivor"-style competitiveness, the desert setting serves as a serene Club Med-type backdrop to the all-male bonding.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Shady mood-piece profits greatly from enigmatic performance by Emmanuel Xeureb.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Inevitable comparisons to Quentin Tarentino's femme-centered carnage extravaganza "Kill Bill" are not unwarranted insofar as both films featurefeature an abstract, self-conscious, and decidedly post-modern approach to a moribund genre.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    A lackluster actioner.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    A lightly feminist, good-naturedly comic sketch of a Chinese-American family in crisis. But despite pic's earnestness and obvious good intentions, narrative elements, carefully set forth though they may be, fall back on overfamiliar, underdeveloped tropes.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    May shock many viewers, especially political liberals.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Neither newly revelatory nor formally innovative.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Pic contains its share of viable gags and stars generate a certain degree of convincing chemistry. But eventually, the seams in personality design and artificially stitched-together script construction begin to show.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    More polished and better acted than many "inspirational" biopics.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Though the Pangs prove culturally adaptive on a visual level, they seem completely clueless as to the tonal modalities of Mark Wheaton's admittedly undercooked, all-American script.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Undeniably topical but the lack of emotional investment in its characters renders it more intelligent than engaging.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Scripter/helmer Sue Kramer's awkward freshman outing eventually coasts on the genuine charm of its leads. A strong vehicle for Heather Graham, who has never looked lovelier, "Gray" scores most convincingly in its reinvention of Carole Lombardian sexual screwiness as head-spinning gender confusion.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Engages but underwhelms.
    • 60 Metascore

    Never completely takes off, yet somewhat overestimates the surrounding zaniness. Still, any opportunity to witness the improvisatory skills of Sarah Silverman, Bonnie Hunt and Amy Sedaris should not be missed.

    Thanked and vilified from coast to coast, Carter remains steadfast in his belief that Israel's policies in the Occupied Territories are unjust and counterproductive.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Kagan's green-screen filmization, in its over-busy editing, ever-changing angles and constantly shifting backdrops, strips the play of its starkness, leaving disproportionate schmaltz and propaganda.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Proves a welcome addition to the growing body of films on Iraq, but ultimately promises more than it delivers.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Generates enough mild humor to keep the spoof rolling, but lacks the commitment and scope.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Boasts dazzling hockey action, but its off-ice piousness makes for tough sledding for non-Canucks.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Aggressively upbeat docu, helmed by two males ill-equipped to bring any distance to the camp's pervasive feel-good feminism, tends to relentlessly reiterate points better served by example.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    The overly simplistic script by Zac Stanford (“The Chumscrubber”) hits nothing but high notes, making the whole dramatically less than the sum of its parts.
