  1. Ambitious and perversely fascinating.
  2. Sandler repeats his sweet-souled doofus routine, with nerdy Patricia Arquette as the object of his affections.

    A sort of "Pretty Woman" for the underworld.
  3. An excellent coming-of-age story that is, for once, and very happily, focussed on a teenage girl.
  4. It's not that this is lousy entertainment, it's just that it's a Serious Topic given unnecessary Celebrity Sheen.
  5. The final scenes, which suggest an earnest science lesson presented by a weepy extraterrestrial in an alien planetarium, play like the work of an amateur filmmaker.
  6. Shaft is a decent popcorn movie and Jackson rises to the responsibility of appearing bigger than life.
  7. It has to be noted that the use of music in this film is the worse in recent memory: maudlin, syrupy, and overwrought.

  8. Enough pep in this picture to make it rise above teen-movie expectations.
  9. A skim-milk version of a yuppie romance.
  10. This director's (Winterbottom) reach is impressive, but this time it doesn't quite grasp.
  11. Hamstrung by a script that is too often smug, obvious and self-important.
  12. The story of Groove... provides an ingratiating road map to a cultural phenomenon. Just make sure you drink lots of water while you're there.
  13. Stripped of the pretension of the overrated "Trainspotting," but it's also void of the earlier film's ambition or glimmers of real cultural insight.
  14. As he explains the male-male relationships and the absence of stigma or judgment, the film soars.

  15. (Smith) seems out of his depth in this talky, rambling religious satire.
  16. Coy, cutesy, sentimental, and shamelessly manipulative.
  17. It can be treacly -- but in a crude way, it makes its point.
  18. Too long, too predictable.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Given the enormous praise, the film falls short.
  19. Leaves almost no impression at all.

  20. The ride in this road movie isn't always as smooth as it could be, but even the bumps have some charm.
  21. A sweet, if slender, surprise.
  22. Disappointingly dumb.
  23. Like the melancholy remininces of an old relative who lived through an exciting, even harrowing time, but no longer possesses the mental faculties to really flesh out the tale they're spinning.
  24. Does a lot of little stuff right, and it sparkles at times.
  25. The lack of chemistry between he (Yun-Fat) and Foster is truly striking: so much so, in fact, that the strain of trying to manufacture some keeps her looking on the verge of outright illness throughout.
  26. As executive producer of the film, he (Freeman) clearly sees something in Alex Cross, a man much more interesting than the cheesy plot surrounding him.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's nothing terribly wrong with the movie, but nothing terribly right about it either.
  27. Crudup tends to take average parts in standard genre films and turn them into something special.
