  1. Wrought with pretension -- and a blind eye to its own exploitation.
  2. It may be possible that people who never go to the movies will stumble across Blow Dry and find it a charming way to spend an hour and a half, but the rest of us will have the ending written in our heads by the end of the first five minutes.
  3. While Bounce may mark a sophomore slump for Roos, it's hardly the worst date movie out there.
  4. The scene doesn't amount to much more than a logical extension of its lightweight premise.
  5. A too-familiar road.
  6. A generally dumb movie with a smart, appealing, gutsy leading lady.
  7. Too slow-moving and too understated in much of its humor.
  8. A very competent film, but it barely pulls you in.

    The accidental beating and killing of innocent people satirizes "Pulp Fiction," or is this Sabu's homage to Tarantino?
  9. The audience for this film would be those people who like their cinematic fare pre-digested and painfully familiar.
  10. An Almodovar-like blend of laughs, drama and uplift, filled with the kinds of pop-art colors and pop-out performances that Almodovar loves.
  11. Starts off brilliantly and then gradually -- actually, not so gradually -- peters out.
  12. A Mexican film that reaches for a very weird and risky tone, and, I think, fails.
  13. Sunshine's historical reference-heavy narrative walks a fine line between novelistic tragedy and comically overstated melodrama, falling down on the job more than once.

    Lacks dramatic tension and fails to bring this great music alive. It does not sing.
  14. Beginnings don't come much more lurid than this, and the rest of End of Days never quite reaches this level of flat-out wildness again.
  15. Sometimes star power alone can keep you from walking out of a movie, and this is one of those times.
  16. It's a painful sit from beginning to end.
  17. The script seems flimsy and disposable when compared with such similar takes on the subject as "Analyze This,""The Sopranos" and the upcoming "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai."
  18. Lawrence's style is purely will-it-stick-the-wall-or-not, and when it doesn't he looks pretty puny up there on the big screen.
  19. Once at sea, The Perfect Storm collapses in a heap of spectacle and a dubious piling-on of scary incidents.
  20. Mildly amusing, both charming and diverting, it plays like a La La Land home movie.
  21. This is a band that deserves better.
  22. Crowe gives the kind of thoughtful performance that suggests what Mystery, Alaska could have been if it had stayed in focus.
  23. Simply can't sustain interest for much of its final hour.
  24. A collection of movie situations, recognizable from the films of Coppola and Scorsese, with a less obvious debt to Kazan.
  25. An odd, sweet and relatively innocuous little fairytale.
  26. This is still Ron Shelton in good -- not great, but good -- form here, and the rewards are plentiful.
  27. There are satisfying moments throughout the movie.
  28. What rescues the movie, time and again, is the strength of Jones' and Jackson's performances.
