  1. UH-UH. Non. Nein. Negative. Sept. 11 is not to be used as the setup for a cheesy disaster prophecy flick.
  2. Kalem's grasp of dramatic storytelling is no firmer, and the disorderly film merely chases its tail for the second half, going nowhere fast.
  3. A great writer deserves a more penetrating and inquisitive documentary: Reverence is not the path to understanding.
  4. At best a sporadically amusing sketchbook of theater types.

    It's very sad to watch Keaton here. In the most excruciating scene, she gets drunk in a bar, staggers up to a microphone and starts to sing, or rather squawk. For those of us who still revere Annie Hall and her blissfully unaffected rendition of "Seems Like Old Times," this is sacrilege.
  5. What follows is a jumble of cop- and heist-movie clichés, dotted with appearances by actors you liked in something else.
  6. It sounds like it was written by the star pupils at the Cameron Academy of Screenwriting.
  7. Colin Firth plays a real-life investigator whom the script renders as noble as Atticus Finch. Reese Witherspoon does haunting work as a victim’s mom. But the stately pace and the faultless art direction add to the impression that truth was not only stranger, but more dramatic.
  8. Sort of "West Side Story" set in 1958 Brooklyn -- minus the music or competent storytelling -- is clearly not dealing from anything close to a full deck.
  9. One of those thriller-comedy combos that never get the balance quite right.

  10. An uninspired recycling of themes that were far more gripping in "The Lion King" and countless other earlier Mouse House classics.
  11. F-A-I-L-U-R-E.
  12. Picks up steam when it finally arrives in Cannes just in time to wreak yet more havoc at the big film festival, but getting there is pretty tedious. A little of the wildly mugging Atkinson goes a long way.
  13. Solid cast notwithstanding, 10th and Wolf is a generic, direct-to-video-grade gangster movie.
  14. De Palma fools around with split screens and slo-mo, but no amount of cinematic artifice can varnish over the fact that this is simply a bad film.
  15. Satire is merciless; it demands that mocker be superior to mockee.
  16. The plot, however, comes with twists you can spot as far off as a Himalayan peak. The dialogue is heavily expository, and the actors are not up to the task of breathing life into characters meant to symbolize the Spirit of the Afghan People or the Nature of Evil.
  17. Director Jacob Rosenberg makes heavy use of family photos and talking heads, but the person we want most to hear from, Way himself, is largely missing. Go figure.
  18. After Fall, Winter would play better minus at least half an hour of flab.
  19. Neither convincing nor remotely dramatic.
  20. Tom Arnold plays the fatherly head of a child-prostitution ring and John Malkovich a sympathetic social worker - two clever casting twists that constitute the main interest in the grueling Gardens of the Night.
  21. Pandaemonium plays like a bus-and-truck version of such Ken Russell's '60s classics as "The Music Lovers."

  22. Ultimately Serving Up Richard feels about as substantial as a Happy Meal (which this poor guy assuredly is not).
  23. Banal at the beginning and preposterous at the close, the British horror film Kill List jumbles together wildly incongruous ingredients to create a dramatic mush.
  24. A movie that appears to have been shot entirely on leftover sets from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
  25. "This Is Spinal Tap" took the mockumentary up to 11. Brothers of the Head brings it back down to about four.
  26. One of those French films whose makers won't lower themselves to tell a story in a way that is entertaining or compelling.

  27. You'd hope a political-insider indie reuniting "West Wing" stars Rob Lowe and Richard Schiff, and informed by the experiences of an actual former spin doctor, would be a small delight. You would be wrong.
  28. By the time White gets around to condescending remarks... the film has become a sort of BBC "Hee Haw," meant to reassure Brits and New Yorkers that the South is indeed a land of pistol-toting, Jesus-praising gap-toothed freaks.
  29. Less enjoyable than making a baby but more enjoyable than raising one, the animated feature Storks delivers a bouncing bundle of blah.
