  1. The flat, gross-out live-action bits, directed by (surprise!) Peter and Bobby Farrelly, don't jive with the zippy, Tex Avery-style animated segments, directed by former storyboard artists Piet Kroon and Tom Sito.

  2. This might be as perfect a new-millennium Halloween creepshow as we can expect.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  3. The result is a feast for the eyes but frequently a famine for the frontal lobes, a movie of towering imagination and middling rewards.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  4. What's right as rain with Diary is the casting.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  5. An enjoyable female buddy caper -- more "Outrageous Fortune" than "Thelma and Louise."
    • Mr. Showbiz
  6. O
    Too much of a locker-room melodrama to make for great tragedy.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  7. The film has an unabashed romantic tone that's matched by Wenders' usual flair for visual drama.
  8. It's the kind of flourish that makes you smile -- that makes you believe in the power of movies.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  9. Simply a pleasant diversion rather the paean to crazy-in-love classics it would so like to be.
  10. Like "Pollock," Nora is a convincing portrait of the intersection between creative genius and crazy, all-consuming love.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  11. The voyage is never less than interesting, even when you have no idea where it could possibly go.
  12. The material it does pull off is daring and sharp.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  13. Arresting, visually accomplished documentary.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  14. Repetitive, aimless, and as frustrating as you'd imagine any two-hour music video to be.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  15. Come Undone is the quintessential gay date at the art house.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  16. As amusing and sharply performed as it is, Lisa Picard quickly grows thin and dull. Perhaps it would have been better as a real documentary, with Kirk and DeWolf simply playing their pathetic selves.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  17. Almost nothing happens for most of the movie.
  18. A tepid and surprisingly dull farce stamped from the "About Mary" mold.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  19. Glossy, gruesome police drama.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  20. At once arch, derivative, and, in the end, bizarrely lyrical.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  21. Just try not to smile while watching Jump Tomorrow.
  22. Mild as satire and completely unconvincing as tragicomedy.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  23. Makes for compulsive viewing.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  24. Spacey and Bridges -- generally provide exactly the level of investment required for their characters to be convincing. Neither one showboats, and both make good use of the dry humor in Leavitt's script.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  25. Wincer keeps the insubstantial story moving and the comedy light.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  26. A smirky black comedy that, like its John Lurie score, is jazzy, dry, and light on its feet.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  27. Packed with melodrama, and often it works in the passionate, easy-to-watch manner of an old-fashioned "woman's film."
    • Mr. Showbiz
  28. The real reason to see it is Brian Cox, best known for being filmdom's other Hannibal Lecter (he played the role in Michael Mann's "Manhunter").
    • Mr. Showbiz
  29. Strictly where the boys are: posing, posturing, and talking engine envy.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This is, recognizably, an indie film, in the best sense of the term.
