  1. Must viewing for the Bridezillas set, this winning pageant of gaudy bad taste is the work of some of the U.K.'s most popular comedy performers.
  2. As a throwback to a type of nasty, ugly crime film of yesteryear, A Walk Among the Tombstones cleans up.
  3. Where Broadcast News mourned the trivialization of the nightly news, Morning Glory asks you to learn to stop worrying and love the trivia.
  4. This fresh and interesting story about a tight-knit clan of Irish grifters in the rural South who make their living scamming is a ''con men on the road'' picture all the more welcome during a season of junky action thrillers and indie-style explorations of kinky sex.
  5. The cooking scenes are fun, but Samir's reawakening and romance with a co-worker (Jess Weixler) hold about as many surprises as a prix fixe meal.
  6. Hoffman and Thompson are each good enough to bring out a glow in the other.
  7. A bouncy, well-built, delightfully nasty tale of resentment, desperation, and amoral revenge that does for employer-employee relations what Danny DeVito and Bette Midler did for the bonds of matrimony in the great 1986 Zucker brothers comedy "Ruthless People."

    Nothing in the movie is quite original, yet Muschietti, expanding his original short, knows how to stage a rip-off with frightening verve.

    The story -- is slight, but an appealing cast and lots of scenic leafery make Green feel fresh.
  8. So scrupulously researched and argued that only a fool would ignore its findings.
  9. A highly conventional 2-D infomercial.
  10. Goes where all too few films dare to venture these days -- into the heart of moral darkness.
  11. The individual components of director Marc Abraham's David-and-Goliath drama are roundly unexceptional; the script, soft and teach-y; the performances, earnest.
  12. First-time writer-director Rodney Evans makes a ballsy leap into historical fantasia, with heartfelt fervor outrunning stray moments of artistic gawkiness.
  13. It's Complicated is middle-aged porn, the specialty of Meyers, who also set ladies and interior decorators drooling over homes and gardens in 2006's “The Holiday.”

    All in all, Future II is another fantastic voyage in a thoroughly entertaining contraption.
  14. It works its own sort of magic. After all, who doesn't want to believe that the soul does have a window, and that if it closes we might open it again?
  15. And if real eroticism is missing - this is a Disney movie, with bosoms heaving more in a gentle parody of heaving than in full desire - the great discovery of this Casanova is Hallström's recovered capacity for play.
  16. The movie is scattershot (intense at some moments, slack at others), but it earns its docu-style creepiness, and Karpovsky's stretch as an actor is daring and authentic.
  17. Branagh did a nice job of directing "Thor," but all he can do here is try to energize the recycled pulp of the script.
  18. Sherlock Holmes is an odd amalgam, a top-heavy light entertainment that keeps throwing things at you and doesn't seem too concerned with whether they stick.

    This is one of those follies that go beyond pesky, bourgeois notions of ''good'' and ''bad.''
  19. Donovan, acting with ironic reserve, hands the movie to Morse, who makes his character the kind of crank you can care about just because he's so abysmally lost.
  20. Even those of us who find anti-homosexual ''deprogramming'' to be hideously intolerant and naive may find ourselves oddly relieved that Mark is there (in a Christian rehab center).
  21. A good satire that had the untimely bad luck to be about a U.S. soldier who will do anything it takes to party, except fight for the right.
  22. Perfume misses some of the subtler base notes of Süskind's creepier, more self-aware original, but Whishaw and Tykwer blend the movie into something quite heady in its own bottle.
  23. Let's face it: Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff) is just too darn polished to be a junior-high underdog, even by the standards of her 'luxe suburban environs.
  24. Beneath The Corruptor's explosive body count is a rock-solid, visually slick crime thriller set in the squalid netherworld of Manhattan's Chinatown.
  25. The savviest and most exciting Bond adventure in years, and that's because there's actually something at stake in it.

    It's like "The Terminator" as reimagined by the editors of French Vogue.
