    As magical as "The Wizard of Oz," the film leaves its spare setting and blooms into action in a colorful springtime world to tell the story of an epic romance lush with silken costumes, giggling courtesans, comic servants and rulers cruel and compassionate.

    Don't let it slip out of town without getting a look at it.

    A long overdue look at the man's art and an unself-pitying and unsparing exploration of her (his daughter's) relationship with him.

    Documentary of riveting personal stories.

    While House of Mirth is well done as a period piece, it has such an eerie contemporary resonance that you nearly forget about the horses and corsets and lamplight.

    There's enough here to make anyone who enjoyed -- if that's the right word -- "Happiness" or "Magnolia" splendidly unhappy.

    The comedy of errors that ensues sometimes slides into Seinfeld territory -- not that there's anything wrong with that -- but the subtlety of the performances combined with graceful retro filmmaking touches and wry narration keep it well above sitcom level. [1 July 1998, p.2D]

    A surfeit of farce and fast-talking makes up for a lack of plot.

    The movie is a little long for kids.

    It's a cute and clever good-vs-evil parable.

    Isn't riveting, but it's diverting enough.

    Strolls from high sentiment to low humor without a stumble, but without reaching any great depth or height.

    All in all it's a decent, well-put-together romantic drama to hold hands to on the weekend.

    Doggone funny.

    Just may be the most entertainingly derivative movie of the millennium so far.

    Lucky Numbers is like stuff bought at an outlet mall. Sure, it's got the brand names and designer labels, but the color's a little strange, the style a little off, and nothing fits just right.

    A fair weekend distraction for 10-year-old girls.

    The title's only the beginning of the many puns, and the story takes enough twists and turns through the Irish countryside to be engaging. But in the end, too much talk, too much forced quirkiness, and too many scenes we've seen before bring it down. [1 July 1998, p.2d]

    An oddly flat, quirky romantic comedy.

    See this movie for Douglas and Bacall, ignore the dialogue and just bask in their star chemistry, still strong after all these years.

    Time Regained is not really worth the time it takes to see it.

    A little like a secular, more sophisticated "Touched by an Angel" episode.

    Sidesteps from the premise of "It's a Wonderful Life" far enough to avoid copyright charges, but not far enough to avoid unfavorable comparisons

    The plot and characters are simultaneously far-fetched and cliched, the dialogue has that jocular, slightly slower than sitcom ring, and the ending is a righteously cheesy letdown.

    It manages just to be pleasant.

    Where it succeeds smashingly is in the sound department.

    The players are game. Too bad they don't have much of a coach or a plan.

    Berliner deserves something better, as do all the actors -- even Moore, who's starting to look very interesting and European.
    • 16 Metascore

    Sophomoric.
