    If Restaurant feels like a high-caliber TV drama, it's one that tries to pack an entire season (plus pilot, plus backstory) into one episode.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A less confrontational, though positively gushing modernization of "Pierre, or the Ambiguities."
    • 33 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A high-spirited, big-bottomed Polaroid of the comedian in a fat suit.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Fans likely to rave about Living.

    What makes Shadow Boxers special is how Bankowsky restores the woman's touch that always seems intentionally excised from coverage of the sport without comprising their participation in the sport.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A tedious, soapy romp about overlapping lives and destiny.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Crammed with such earnest belief in the power of love - even if it happens in the Chicago Zoo - it almost doesn't matter that O'Connor and Loggia have better chemistry than Duchovny and Driver.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Things stay standard-issue French self-analytical from here.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Queasy comedy.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The movie's primary narrative weakness is that its racism plot points seem ripped from the headlines of a "Geraldo" newsletter and stretched into a string of terribly executed car chases.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Simply an endurance contest, one almost worth staying the 82 minutes to see who wins.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The welcome hints at emotional excess are compromised by the blunt force of the movie's political point-making.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The vibe is acoustic-cafe: cute, catchy and ironic given its wimpy point of view.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Like a guy who finally gets what he wants, you just want to go home once it's over.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    An enervated adaptation of E.B. White's Stuart Little escapades.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Woo delivers a vintage breakneck, break-arm, break-face 20-minute finale.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    As entertaining, charming and conceited as other Robert Redford joints, but it's also insufferably obvious.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    An unsteady stab at noir.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Roth, though, is like a sociopathic arsonist, one enthralled with his ability to start little blazes and one who would even call the fire department, but wouldn't stick around to see whether anyone put them out.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Aiming to keep it real, the cast of the new dance casserole Center Stage sweats spunk.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    You're smarter than this, but occasionally it tricks you into thinking it might be up to something you haven't considered, like an above-average, extra-bloody episode of "Scooby Doo."
    • 25 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Any movie that opens with a Goo Goo Dolls song and ends with a line like "I'm going to live -- just not as long as you" is bound to leave somebody reaching for a Kleenex.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Just fascinating in an empty, trendy sort of way
    • 57 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The director bludgeons us dumb with her genius.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    This is not the addictive, hot-wired movie you want.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Overstays its welcome until the jokes curdle and the satire becomes a blunt instrument, but not before Busch throws some priceless one-liners.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    It's the year's funniest, most absurd sight gag.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The film is obviously a long-form episode of a show better digested in 22-minute segments.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The film is in the key of "Romeo and Juliet," and it's a one-note tune.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Woody Allen's questionable toe-tapping faux-documentary.
