  1. A documentary mosaic of kooky Americana.
  2. A campy, brightly colored musical comedy.
  3. Your heart will have you cheering Gordy on -- even as your brain complains that there are plot holes you could drive a truck bomb through.
  4. Features abundant sex and nudity, yet it manages to tell its story (based on a real character) with great sensitivity.
  5. Filmed largely in black and white, The Cool School includes interviews with one of the gallery's founders, Ed Kienholz, as well as with Dennis Hopper, Dean Stockwell and architect Frank Gehry.
  6. I've seen Demonlover twice and still find the plot a challenge. I'd try again if I thought it would help.
  7. A testosterone- and cliché-fueled epic that will have some hoping for sudden death as it stumbles toward the three-hour mark.

  8. Too often seems like a slightly silly film.

  9. The movie putters along as softly as Wendy drives. Despite its lack of narrative horsepower, though, its character sketches are pleasing. And amusing.
  10. Travis, making his feature debut, gets very likable performances out of his female stars. And it's nice to see sex given its due as a wide, wild buffet rather than the standard missionary, bra-on fare we're usually served in a rom-com. Mmm-hmmm!
  11. Screenwriter Steve Kloves still seems overly dedicated to cramming in every detail of J.K. Rowling's novel - while tacking on a schmaltzy Hollywood ending.
  12. Slight but charming.
  13. In the course of How About You, much champagne is consumed, pot is smoked, and a good time is had by all, the audience included. Redgrave even sings the title song.
  14. It's got enough going on to sustain five blockbuster thrillers. That is its blessing and its curse.
  15. It's not exactly going to be on PETA's 10-best list.
  16. Sometimes hilarious but mostly sitcom-esque geezer comedy.

  17. There is fun to be had at Van Helsing, but it requires considerable suspension of disbelief at the apparently deliberately ridiculous plot necessary to bring the three monsters together.
  18. Works unexpectedly well for its first three quarters.

  19. A black-and-white fantasia shot against a bright backdrop of famous sites, and it has potential to be a cult hit on its dreamy-hipster look alone.
  20. Disaster movies, from "The Poseidon Adventure" to "Towering Inferno," are impossible to take seriously and "Day" is no exception - it's simply a fast-moving pageant of end-of-the-world eye candy.
  21. An extremely well- acted thriller that simply fails to thrill.
  22. Despite the attention focused on New Orleans these days, though, the film won't win many new converts. The musicians swear this is dance music, but the beats are far too ponderous to get a rise out of the hip-hop generation.
  23. Coogan is often very funny as the libertine Raymond, whose real estate holdings made him one of the UK’s richest men at the time of his death in 2006. But tragedy simply is beyond his range at this point.
  24. Formulaic but entertaining, My Best Friend climaxes with a lengthy, surprisingly heartfelt sequence set on the French version of "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire."

    Begins so briskly and promisingly to stumble aimlessly and flat-footedly to a surprise finale.
  25. The film is worth watching if only for Kim, who before this had never seen a movie, let alone acted in one.
  26. Where Anonymous has it all over "Shakespeare in Love'' is its detailed evocation of London from four centuries ago. The rowdy audience for Shakespeare's first works at the Globe Theatre is especially colorful.
  27. There's plenty of smash, thunder and brawl for the kids. But in taking a bit of Hulk and a bit of Superman while re-imagining Excalibur as a hammer, Thor amounts to putting new horns on old ideas. And the screenplay sounds like the lyrics of Spinal Tap.
  28. This serviceable remake sticks fairly closely and smartly to the same plot, with the same scary objects and even the line, “They’re here.”
  29. This romantic dramedy tries to cram enough plot twists for a season’s worth of TV episodes into an hour and a half, but is still worthwhile for its fine performances, including the best work that Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly have done in quite a while.
