  1. For sheer dramatic wallop outpowers virtually every fiction feature I've seen this year.

    A pox on the man's (E.B. White) memory.
  2. Janet McTeer displays Amazonian power while Jennifer Jason Leigh tears into her role as a high maintenance creature with a ferocity that leaves little room for her usual acting tics.
  3. Laddish, one joke, genre scrambling rock & roll fairy tale.
  4. Cotton candy story with an acrid aftertaste.
  5. Slow -- sometimes maddeningly, soporifically so.
  6. Ozon specializes in dissecting the vulnerability, erotic longing, and garbled intentions with which people regularly rub up against one another.
  7. When Kinney and Muth share scenes, it's hard not to get caught up.
  8. The actors themselves are more rip roaring and full of spunk than in their first outing.

    If you put the scripts for ''West Side Story,'' ''Mean Streets,'' and ''The Warriors'' in a blender, you might wind up with something like Deuces Wild, a preposterously melodramatic paean to gang-member teens in Brooklyn circa 1958.
  9. While it's rarely scary, the film is often gory.

    More than just dumb, the picture is embarrassingly dorky.
  10. Just coarse, clunky, jerry rigged, and -- worst of all -- not funny.
  11. There's no mirth, and precious little passion, left in this house.
  12. Mostly preposterous, and it has no dramatic center, but the racing scenes hold you in their death-trip grip.
  13. Turns out to be the portrait of a serial yo-yo dieter, an impression enhanced by the 60 year old Berlin, who suggests less a former depraved scenester than a calorie compulsive Martha Stewart grown bored with good taste.
  14. A suspenseful and delightfully creepy French drama.
  15. The punchlines are as tired as Hogan looks.

    Fine candy for mind and eye.
  16. Gillen can't make good on his gaze's search and destroy capabilities.
  17. To dismiss this movie for being ''offensive'' would be to offer it high praise.
  18. Too arty by half.
  19. Bridget's most attractive asset is that she's played by Renée Zellweger.
  20. This cinematic stiff should have stayed buried.
  21. Circles the heart of noisy, modern Tehran with an informal, documentary-like freedom that is thrilling in its naturalism.
  22. Ends up blowing its own joke. Instead of making Joe blissfully arrogant in his Southern rock dude myopia, it turns him into a shuffling masochistic loser.
  23. The movie's got bounce. Spanked along by a soundtrack that has a surprising punky bite for something aimed at 13-year-olds.
  24. What slays them in the second balcony, though, flattens on the screen.
  25. A movie overtly designed to win attention (and not to do much else).
  26. Carries little in the way of passion or revelatory charge.
