    Groovy.

    The journey's a kick.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Stooge-filled farce offers low laughs but lacks a point.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An edgy, hypnotic entertainment that's like a Club Med production of "Lord of the Flies."
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 35 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A film where suspense and exhilaration are incompatible, and a receding plot line is merely the platform for cars to fly through panes of glass.

    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A gorgeous sliver of grown-up ambrosia.
    • 67 Metascore

    One of Lee's unsung gifts as a filmmaker is his discovery of that place between eye-popping surrealism and wrenching Greek tragedy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Prince-Bythewood's movie is an occasionally clunky, mostly engaging coming out party for herself.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    As formulaic, but occasionally outré multiplex-bound behemoths go, Gladiator is a foaming beast.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    In 80 minutes, the film accumulates a staggering gravity.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Ultimately affecting mix 'n' match weeper.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    At once a stifling exercise in thwarting emotional dynamics and a heated invitation to engage in the film's discourse on the shortcoming of sexual politics and justice in a media-saturated land.

    Where most effects-laden extravanganzas aspire to be nothing more than a live-action comic book, The Matrix sees things with the venturesome clarity of a graphic novel.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Broadway-sized performances.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The sort of smutty scandalmongering the average moviegoer can really get behind.

    The finest element in de la Pena's carefully assembled account is how she doesn't simply state the obvious, but lets the meaty facts speak for themselves.
    • San Francisco Examiner

    Slightly more mature and better assembled, Road Trip goes one better on "American Pie" by teasing out the idiosyncrasies in four guys existing in a personality grab bag.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Comes on like an "After School Special'' psychodrama that's been taken off its medication.

    Hamlet finds in Hawke's greatish performance a Great Dane for this, or any other, modern moment.

    For an anonymous Saturday afternoon, it's the best lump of coal Hollywood can jam in your stocking.
    • 69 Metascore

    The story is a mess. But On Guard was directed by the reliable Philippe de Broca, who imbues the whole affair with high-calorie silliness.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Sensationalism and doom are not on screen here; Jacquot offers a relatively peaceful moment in Sade's life.
    • 47 Metascore

    Like Schumacher, director Gregor Schnitzler is more preoccupied with his characters' looks than their behavior. You might not buy the ideas. But you'll definitely want the T-shirt.
    • 61 Metascore

    Wonderfully deranged.
    • 51 Metascore

    This present-day Paris of Le Divorce is smartly shot and costumed, and the whole affair is breezy and uncharacteristically insouciant, given the reserved nature of the folks responsible for it.

    At some point we're flashed a junkyard billboard telling us that Collinwood is the ''Beirut of Cleveland'' - yes, but here, it's by way of Looney Tunes.

    The real core of The Core is the beautiful friendship between a highly emotive Eckhart and the sacrificial Karyo. Their bond is the best thing to happen to Franco-American relations since SpaghettiOs.

    Short without feeling scant. That's how big its sense of grief is.

    Suffice it to say that Chris Smith's Home Movie is the most bananas episode of ''Cribs'' ever. The film is Smith's ballad of the wacky homeowner.
