    It's very effective.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Tom Keogh
    The film's bemused but genuine respect for the ingenious obviousness of a bygone cinematic language is quite moving.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    Look to the cast as the best reason to see this film.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    About two lives in which transformation is a constant, destabilizing threat to freedom and sanity. That's a very provocative premise, though halfway through the movie Doyle and Walsh abandon its potential to go for easy laughs.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    A mixed bag, all in all (casting Huey Lewis was not the best idea), but worth seeing.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    The film is simplicity itself.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    All fleeting charm where it could have been one of the most memorable films of the decade.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    The true star of this film, funny and often breathtakingly lovely, Zellweger carries virtually every scene in which she appears -- which aren't nearly as plentiful as one might like.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    If you're paying close attention, there is reason enough to find Up at the Villa a fascinating experience, almost an experiment in some ways, but it's not a fully realized work of cinema.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    Streep delivers another of her chameleon-like transformations in appearance, accent, and manner.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    It is an ostensibly serious story about being young and struggling to wrest control over one's life from the hands of fools, yet it doesn't behave like a serious drama that wants to lead us anywhere.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    The film's light success really comes down to Shannon, though, the exuberant "SNL" star whose alter ego actually seems more real and sympathetic here than she does in brief TV skits.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    Doesn't go the distance in either story or style, unwilling to liberate itself from real or presumed expectations about what it takes to sell a movie featuring teenagers.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    Jim Carrey is magnificent as Kaufman.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Keogh
    The effects never really get ahead of the characters or the script's layered personality.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    It does yield solidly comic performances.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    The story, ultimately, is about the classic conflict between a desire to cherish and protect one's unique gifts from a brutal world and a more practical instinct to compromise beauty.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    Shaft is a decent popcorn movie and Jackson rises to the responsibility of appearing bigger than life.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    This is still Ron Shelton in good -- not great, but good -- form here, and the rewards are plentiful.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    Comes across as a deceptively streamlined comic-drama; an unnervingly violent, gritty film noir with a wink.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    Ross might have been better served by dismissing verisimilitude altogether and going for a real fable-fable to make what is essentially a very simple point about the dangers and rewards of accepting life's beautiful risks.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    Lawrence's style is purely will-it-stick-the-wall-or-not, and when it doesn't he looks pretty puny up there on the big screen.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    The filmmakers went for cheap laughs as well as for some a little harder-earned. The only thing pure about this film is the dog, and he's magnificent.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    Simply a case of severe overreaching and the illusion that an overstuffed movie is an epic movie.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    A dark comedy that squanders its potential and never quite, as they say, suspends disbelief.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    An authentically spirited popcorn movie.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    While we may like what we see, it's impossible to comprehend what much of it means or why we should care.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    The would-be emotional centerpiece of his three-hours-plus adventure flick is the most juvenile romantic tale of 1997.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    What the film doesn't have, ironically, is a soul.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Keogh
    Once at sea, The Perfect Storm collapses in a heap of spectacle and a dubious piling-on of scary incidents.
