  1. It's a drab, familiar story with no oomph (and less humor than you'd think), and it's inconsistent.
  2. Mature and adroitly performed but ultimately underachieving.
  3. Along the way, we end up losing patience with our couple-to-be because they seem too smart to endure the indignities ceaselessly heaped on them.
  4. Plenty of the tasteless gags don't fly, and for every celebrity cameo that works (a hilariously heavenly Reese Witherspoon), there are two or three that crash and burn.
  5. Hicks is far less interested in resolving dramatic conflicts than in framing shots.
  6. "Run mad whenever you choose, but do not faint," Austen wrote in her early journals. Despite its brazen politics, Mansfield Park never goes giddily amok as promised.
  7. For a modest film, however, Too Much Sleep is a modest surprise.
  8. It's yet another serial killer movie, a plot element that by this point in time, far from being disturbing or fascinating, is just plain dull.

  9. There's a sense of life to Committed that's unpredictable and sweet, but too much of it is cluttered with lazy shortcuts.

  10. From the beginning of his career a fervent, epic documentarian, Herzog is a personal filmmaker as well, and My Best Fiend is certainly his most intimate and introspective film.
