    McNally adapted his Tony-award winning play for the screen, and for once a movie is an improvement on the stage version.

    A warmhearted film.

    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    A frothy comedy with the most adorable buddies since "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Perversely fascinating.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Ruthe Stein
    As a sports drama -- a genre that's gotten entirely too much play lately -- "Dreamer" is singularly unexciting.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 100 Ruthe Stein
    Family entertainment at its best.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    A wildly entertaining fantasy thriller that propels Russian cinema into the 21st century.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    A heartwarming, inspirational tale.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Dark, disturbing and audaciously original in a way only indies are given license to be anymore, the film never telegraphs where it's heading. But you don't need a pathfinder to sense the general direction is toward hell.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    A marital comedy as perceptive as it is delectable.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Ruthe Stein
    A romantic saga that dares to ask realistic questions.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 Ruthe Stein
    The film is a particular disappointment considering its pedigree.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Ruthe Stein
    A neo-noir thriller long on atmosphere and short on production values.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 Ruthe Stein
    So disturbing it makes you uncomfortable watching it.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    The filmmakers have wisely turned it into a comedy, and a wickedly entertaining one at that.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Ruthe Stein
    A pretty ugly movie in its own right.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Extremely pleasurable and well worth seeing.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Fascinating and distinctly politically incorrect.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    For all its depiction of a descent into drug addiction, Candy is filled with surprisingly sweet moments and goes down more easily than seems possible given the subject matter.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Suffused with a golden glow, the movie looks and sounds like a fairy tale.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Boasts a collection of oddball characters, some more sharply written than others.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Ruthe Stein
    May be too convincing for its own good.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    The Last Kiss ponders what you give up -- and what you gain -- from sticking with what you've got.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    When the movie is viewed with fresh eyes, the most captivating feature is this surreal Vegas -- its neon signs askew, as if reconfigured by Andy Warhol, and its preternaturally glistening streets a siren's call to an ever-new batch of suckers.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    Doesn't poke fun at anyone's beliefs.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    All along, you know something terrible is going to happen, and when it does, you leave the theater shaken and deeply moved.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Ruthe Stein
    I'm not denying that a 40-year- old woman might be self-conscious about going around with someone this young. But the subject isn't interesting or provocative enough to sustain an entire movie.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Ruthe Stein
    If the formula seems a little tired, it still has more sophistication and pizzazz than most action films.
