  1. It’s photographically yummy, heaving with sun-dappled vistas and four-star dining. The boys float around a bit in the sea and enjoy homemade pasta while trundling out their impressions of, say, Marlon Brando.
  2. The last half hour devoted to the Big Game, staged by a crew from NFL films, is genuinely rousing and inspiring. That's where Friday Night Lights finally shines.
  3. Musician Bones is believable as the luckless tourist in lime-green shades, and the musical soundtrack, including songs by Bones, is infectious.
  4. Dark, depressing drama.
  5. The beginning and end are classics.
  6. The plot doesn’t entirely escape formula, and the ending is jagged and forced, unable to commit to either hope or gloom. But for at least part of its length, My Brother the Devil brings refreshing changes to a genre badly in need of them.
  7. Hustle & Flow promises gritty street drama but delivers "Pretty Woman" with crunk instead of Roxette.
  8. The kind of sentimental, upbeat and inoffensive children's entertainment parents always hope their kids will like.
  9. Very funny. It's also heartbreakingly sad.
  10. Harrelson's charming flamboyance - seen to great effect in "No Country for Old Men" - is a great fit for Carter, who carries no small amount of self-loathing under his carefully coifed toupee.
  11. Uneven, self-conscious but often hilarious spoof.
  12. Despite the pace, though -- pedal, have you met my friend metal? -- Ninja Assassin still has some of its best stuff left at the end, when the master returns to demonstrate his extra-special, super-most-deadliest technique.
  13. The movie could have used more of the band's music and less talk.
  14. The gags run thin after half an hour or so.
  15. Well-intended and often poignant film that, unfortunately, too often bogs down in too much talk by its participants.
  16. Could have been a spiky culture clash. When it tries to shock us with its alleged realism, though, it is entirely a bore.
  17. It's all a gorgeous error, a bonfire of overreach.
  18. Entertaining and heartwarming -- especially when Mirren sweeps into scenes with acid observations that fail to disguise a heart of gold.
  19. Disappointingly routine kidnapping thriller with soap-opera trimmings.
  20. Formulaic but surprisingly charming.
  21. This is a rare case of a movie that improves dramatically as it goes along.
  22. A bit too shaggy to totally live up to the potential of its fine cast. But there are moments of comedy gold - especially as Segel, who went full-frontal for "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" endures endless humiliations as the title character.
  23. Morris is likely to disappoint liberals in The Unknown Known by failing to take down an apparently weak target.
  24. Thanks to a superb performance by Isabelle Huppert, it's compulsively, gruesomely watchable.
  25. Despite copious full-frontal female nudity, House of Pleasures isn't mere sexploitation. Rather, it's a gorgeously filmed portrait of a bygone era, with painstaking attention to period detail. On the downside, the movie is overlong.
  26. It’s adequately visionary, it’s routinely spectacular, it breathes fire and yet somehow feels room-temperature.
  27. In effect gives you two movies for the price of one. The better one doesn't star Sandra Bullock.
  28. Has just enough fairy dust to charm its target audience.
  29. A documentary mosaic of kooky Americana.
  30. A campy, brightly colored musical comedy.
