  1. I don't know if it's ickier to assume that writer-director Brad Silberling (Moonlight Mile) thinks the culture-clash jokes he pushes in 10 Items or Less are charming because they're earnest, or because they're tongue-in-cheek. Either way, this sale is void.

    10 Items or Less is a case study in cluelessness.
  3. A good-natured but failed experiment in meeting cute -- indie-movie style.

    I thought this was an intelligent film-made by the THINK film company no less...About a Mexican American young woman who works as a cashier in a grocery store but who wants to have a better life. Not such a strange theme when you think about it. Maybe I'm biased as someone who spent years working as a cashier because its all I could get...so I suppose that would make me identify with the film more than most people who haven't done that type of thing. Morgan Freeman plays a guy who is an actor in the film (himself?) and it adds a nice touch to the movie. Not an action movie-kind of like the indue films from the 1980's just about life in general-its worth seeing if you appreciate intelligent filmmaking. I give it an eight for not trying to be gangsta gangsta film. There are way too many of those types of films out there these days. Not every bodies life is like that. It's good someone said so with this film. Full Review »

    This movie is boring as hell...actors is very good, but storyline is empty shell with nothing inside...waste of time. I didn't find any point of this movie. Full Review »

    This movie is hugely under rated. It just proves that it does not take millions of dollars and a "safe" plot line to be something great. ill admit it started off slow but it came back with laughs and an ending that makes one at first object to it but then realize how classic is was.
