    Your baby is near death. Instead of dropping everything to save his life, you make sure the video camera keeps rolling.

    There are a few scares, but not enough to make up for the murky script.

    Amu
    Fails to grab the imagination as it unfolds in familiar TV-movie fashion.

    So beautifully filmed (as if through a gauze curtain), it is especially sad that the script doesn't measure up.

    Harper and the film's director, Jeremy Kagan, try valiantly, but they are unable to bring Meir to life or hold viewers' attentions.

    The result is a hodgepodge of plots and styles, a fault compounded by stiff acting and, except for a few scenes, wooden direction.

    Allah made me funny - not.

    The NYU film grad steals liberally from Woody (especially "Annie Hall") - from camera placement to body language to plot twists to the whole Ingmar Bergman thing. That's not necessarily bad, if the project works. This one doesn't - it just annoys.

    The film is light on those kitschy musical numbers that make Bollywood movies fun to watch.
    • 46 Metascore

    Clichéd stories, clichéd characters. All that's missing is Ed Burns.

    Adams and the school's students and teachers deserve an A-plus, although the film rates a much lower grade. It unfolds lifelessly, as Binzer parades a contingent of talking heads before the camera in what could pass for an infomercial.

    Is nothing sacred? In the schizophrenic war epic The War lords, Jet Li, the hunky action hero, cries -- no, make that sobs -- several times. What will his legion of young male fans think?
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    It's a worthy idea, but the uninspired scripts, acting and direction never rise above the level of an after-school TV special.

    A bland look at professional surfing.

    Katie Aselton has achieved the seemingly impossible. She's turned a movie about sex into a boring, talky snooze.

    Lilien is an amateur filmmaker, and his movie -- which at times is more about Lilien than Pale Male -- shows it.

    Sillen drags out generic talking heads who say generic things about Bernstein, a generic boho. The film might suffice if you're looking for something to watch on cable TV some early morning. But it isn't worth the hassle and expense of going to a theater.

    The preachy movie is hardly worth the hassle and money required to see it in a theater. Better to download it or wait for it to pop up on TV.

    Love in Space is just what movie fans have been waiting for: a romantic comedy from Communist China.

    While the original was an art-house success, this English-language redo, now getting a one-week run after sitting on the shelf for a year and a half, doesn't measure up.

    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A documentary hardly anybody has been waiting for.

    After Fall, Winter would play better minus at least half an hour of flab.

    Director Jacob Rosenberg makes heavy use of family photos and talking heads, but the person we want most to hear from, Way himself, is largely missing. Go figure.

    Gil Kofman has an interesting and funny story to tell in his documentary Unmade in China. Too bad he spends more time talking about himself than detailing his misadventures in Xiamen, China, population 3.67 million.

    The landscape cinematography is often eye-pleasing, but the script is labored, filled with clichés and never allows for character development.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Becomes more and more confused, unpleasant and preposterous.

    Unlike Cursed, which resorts to blatant but unconvincing gore and violence, "The Wolf Man" (1941) gets its point across through suggestion, makeup and spooky sets.

    Dom DeLuise, as a fruitcake director, and John Waters fave Mink Stole, as Robin's Jewish mother, spice things up, but not enough to make Girl Play worthwhile.

    Huppert is wonderful, as usual, and she's to be congratulated for taking this daring role. But, alas, even she can't save Ma Mere.

    The one highlight is Julia Nickson, who breathes life into the role of Ethan's evil stepmom.
