    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Atypical teen drama about opposites attracting that often (and happily) confounds expectations.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Guilty of inciting a near-laugh riot thanks to an irresistible leading lady whose comic instincts are as impeccable as her manicure.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The goofiest, giddiest and, yes, grooviest animated trip since Aladdin unbottled its genie.

    Let the killjoys squawk. Lucas has proved he has the Naboos to pull it off again. And again. And again.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    With the astonishingly assured newcomer Jason Schwartzman to bounce off of, Murray has his best comic foil since those feisty rodents in Groundhog Day and Caddyshack. [5 February 1999, Life, p.11E]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    All about macho my-weapon-is-bigger-than-your-weapon posturing and far-fetched coincidences that slam together in an entertaining rush.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Arnie is Arnie. He has all the cute lines ("No problemo," "Hasta la vista, baby''). And he does more with a squint than anyone since Popeye. [3 July 1991, Life, p.1D]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Isn't always perfect. But it fills an empty spot in the hearts of girls of all ages who have been pining all summer for a movie like this.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    There's much mumbo-jumbo about past lives and symbolic tattoos, but who cares when you can gaze at a sight as lovely as a dirigible floating in the night sky?
    • 92 Metascore

    The first all computer-animated feature, which brings a bedroom of playthings to bouncy life, is yummy eye candy spiked with 3-D-style tactile treats.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The film bobs along like a designer balloon, pumped with wry observations on Marky Mark and Mentos ads. But none of the other cartoonish characters command like twinkly Silverstone.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Think "Animal Farm" redone as Ant Farm. [2 October 1998, p. 11E]
    • 31 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Far from redundant. That's because (Kirk) Wong deftly balances the outrageous stunts. [24 April 1998, p. 6E]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    This twisted romance possesses the soul and edgy atmosphere of an independent film but not quite the conviction.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Flawed but not fatally, this ambitious epic's strength lies not just with its haunting melodies, pretty pictures, star voices and kid-friendly sidekicks - the usual shtick that makes Disney tick. [14 Nov 1997, p.D6]
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    When we first see Meryl Streep's happy homemaker in One True Thing, she's a domestic dinosaur circa late '80s, a regular mommy monster. [18 September 1998, p.3E]
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    DreamWorks' story of Moses raises the bar on the art of cartooning to the top of Mount Sinai and beyond.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The best romantic comedies intoxicate like vintage champagne. Picture Perfect, on the other hand, is like a wine spritzer. Insubstantial and oversweet, it still refreshes as a midsummer brain cooler. [1 August 1997, p. 3D]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Clumsier hands could have planted this load of pungent sap and come up with sticky fingers. But the creators of this based-on-truth fable carefully cultivate the material so it comes off fresher than it sounds.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    A film that wins on 'Courage' of its convictions. {12 July 1996, p. D1]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Light as a feather. [8 March 1996, p.D1]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Costner and Russo show they're up to par. [16 August 1996, p.D1]

    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Carrey's jolly green mug carries Mask. [29 July 1994, p. D1]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The pitch of the script, written by director Mark Herman, isn't perfect. But these earthy blokes are an engaging lot, the soot of the earth, with an admirably wry view of their bleak situations. [23May1997 Pg 03.D]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    The Sting-like ending with its crosses and double-crosses could have been better handled, but there are plenty of other payoffs in Hoodlum. [27Aug1995 Pg02.D]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    It's as disturbing a movie as you are likely to witness this year. [21Feb1997 Pg.04.D]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Nothing too fancy or ambitious. Instead, writer-director George Tillman Jr. serves up down-home fare that enriches the heart and leaves you satisfied if stuffed. [26Sep1997 Pg.06.D]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Note this in your Starlog: Tacky toupees are out. Chrome domes are in. And not only is the future in safe hands, so is the "Star Trek" franchise. [22 Nov 1996 Pg.05.D]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Susan Wloszczyna
    Keaton doesn't stoop to bitter-spinster blather. Instead, the luminous vulnerability that served her well in such dramas as "Shoot the Moon" lights up this depressing, gallows-humored heart-tugger. [18 Dec 1996, Pg.01.D]
    • 55 Metascore

    Back to the Future Part III wraps up the film series with a big high-tech lasso and ropes in one heck of a good time. [25 May 1990, p.01D]
