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

    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.

    There's enough here to make anyone who enjoyed -- if that's the right word -- "Happiness" or "Magnolia" splendidly unhappy.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Sara Wildberger
    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.

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

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

    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]

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

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

    Doggone funny.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 63 Sara Wildberger
    All in all it's a decent, well-put-together romantic drama to hold hands to on the weekend.

    The movie is a little long for kids.
    • 44 Metascore

    Isn't riveting, but it's diverting enough.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 63 Sara Wildberger
    Strolls from high sentiment to low humor without a stumble, but without reaching any great depth or height.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Wildberger
    Time Regained is not really worth the time it takes to see it.

    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.
    • 62 Metascore

    A little like a secular, more sophisticated "Touched by an Angel" episode.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Wildberger
    It manages just to be pleasant.
    • 45 Metascore

    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.

    LL Cool J. plays God like a medieval king.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Wildberger
    Sidesteps from the premise of "It's a Wonderful Life" far enough to avoid copyright charges, but not far enough to avoid unfavorable comparisons
    • 33 Metascore

    See this movie for Douglas and Bacall, ignore the dialogue and just bask in their star chemistry, still strong after all these years.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Wildberger
    A fair weekend distraction for 10-year-old girls.

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

    Where it succeeds smashingly is in the sound department.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Sara Wildberger
    An oddly flat, quirky romantic comedy.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 25 Sara Wildberger
    Sophomoric.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Sara Wildberger
    This misguided gangster rap movie had every strike against it from the start.

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