    It's a half-life better than Martin Lawrence treading similar, simpler water in "Big Momma's House."

    Dogma' is Kevin Smith's fourth film and it looks like his first but I'm not ready to quit him -- there's a landmark in him. I just wish the crafty, raucous Dogma was it.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Priceless enough to flush "Metro," "Dr. Dolittle" and "Holy Man" from memory.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An alt-country paean to libidinal mothers and the little girls who clean up the mess.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    McTiernan's film mines what substance it has from its two stars, but is admittedly about keeping up its own appearances.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    What remains of the book's psychological underpinnings -- there are enough here to leave a permanent dent in the couch of any Freud-loving shrink
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Hot-blooded.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An adrenaline-pumping, post-musical musical.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A dashing fusion of the literary and the cinematic.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Harris, Heche make unholy twosome.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Revelatory.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    There's enough sexual manic depression to justify house calls from Dr. Laura.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Never has this war been filmed with such ragged glory.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    At its best when it's hovering around the muted dysfunction between a father and a son, who never understood each other to begin with.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A flyweight, humongously entertaining ensemble number.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The film is alt-schmaltz, and it'll do.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Priceless.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The ballad as it turns out is a duet between a dad and his girl, who'd often rather accentuate the positive than exploit pain, quietly proving that she is her father's daughter.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A crafty, sometimes craven, but hardly worshipful snapshot of an unlikely candidate for biggest rock act on earth.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The End of the Affair's masterfully heartbroken final scene is scarier in its nightmarishly wry suggestion of ill fate than anything that ever happened on Elm Street.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Spirited, madly educational docu-quickie.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Like a Sally Field movie by Vittorio De Sica: Zhang wants to affect you with the subtle sting of his politics.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An ecstatic sensory experience so overloaded it hardly matters that the narrative has been placed on a back burner.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    From both sides of the camera, Eastwood works the crowd better than he has in years.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Binoche is the ideal creature for that kind of cosmetic expansion, and, here, her thorough modernity takes on an almost cruddy, Italian sadness.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Crassly funny passages.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A fascinating, sometimes profound curiosity.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Where Never Been Kissed succeeds is in its unabashed refusal to stoop to choosing sides in the high-school hipness war.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    There's an unstable genius brewing beneath Mary Katherine's scarlet headband. As "SNL" women go, only Gilda Radner seemed as willing to rib so much of herself for our pleasure.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An impressively competent "how will male teen star get with female teen star at high school dance?" romance.
