  1. A surprisingly upbeat look at that Middle East hotspot.
  2. After sitting a while in front of my computer trying to come with the right word to describe the Argentine soaper Family Law, I've settled on "diverting." You will be entertained, but you won't tax your brain.
  3. It's the Food Network meets The Weather Channel meets . . . the Scary Doomsday Preachers Channel.
  4. IF you like rap, you'll probably enjoy The Hip Hop Project. I don't like rap.
  5. The poster art for Nanette Burstein's American Teen, which follows five students through their senior year at a high school in Indiana, is modeled after the one for "The Breakfast Club." So, to a large extent, is this ultra-slick and predictable documentary.
  6. A buffet of dumb and degrading stunts halfway between Looney Tunes and Abu Ghraib?
  7. Rambling, mildly engaging micro-budgeted indie.
  8. Like a preoperative transsexual, Transamerica is neither one thing nor the other. It yanks at the heartstrings too much to qualify as an edgy comedy-drama, but it's far too bawdy to make it to the Hallmark Channel.
  9. Too many cooks spoil the broth, and too many directors spoil the anthology film Paris Je T'aime.
  10. Even with a clever final twist straight out of "The Twilight Zone," this crummy-looking two-hander is a tough sit.
  11. At 132 minutes, the film is at least half an hour too long. Nobody asked me, but the best solution would be to keep the action sequences (such as the robbery of a horse-drawn steam train, an homage to Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in the West''), and scrap the allegedly "witty'' dialogue and difficult-to-follow plot twists.
  12. Like many movies that premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, The One I Love has plenty of story — for a 30-minute TV episode, in this case of “The Twilight Zone.”
  13. Unfortunately, the cast of characters you’ll find here is a pale imitation of her Hogwarts heroes.
  14. The script is cliché-ridden and ends on an overly sentimental note.
  15. Misleadingly billed as a Fallujah documentary, Occupation: Dreamland covers a six-week period when not much was happening there.
  16. If the plot of the Argentine soaper Puzzle seems familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to the story in the French movie "Queen To Play."

    As a work of historical documentation, The Source suffers from Workman's wholly celebratory take on the movement.
  17. Engaging in a soap operatic, rather glib way.

  18. Basically a watered-down collage of scenes from "Heathers," "Clueless," "Sixteen Candles" and numerous other teen flicks.
  19. Sometimes dull and mostly uninspired, it's much less a satisfying reboot like "Batman Begins'' than a pointless rehash in the mode of "Superman Returns.''
  20. Kekilli delivers a perfectly tuned performance. Too bad the script is often clunky and melodramatic, as the first-time director, Vienna-born Feo Aladag, tries to manipulate viewers' emotions.
  21. Aimed squarely at the under-6 crowd, is basically the pilot for a Nickelodeon series with an already heavily merchandised character.
  22. The subject is worth exploring - unfortunately, de Seve does so in a cut-and-dried manner that never explains why these two couples were able to stay together for so long.
  23. Wavers between (sometimes) brilliant and (mostly) boring. But it would be wrong to call it a failure.
  24. A touching love story that gets sidelined by a tiresome intra-family African political dispute, A United Kingdom has a big heart that beats far too slowly.
  25. Good-looking but tonally dubious feature debut from Elizabeth Wood.
  26. A barbell of a movie that carries some weight at either end. What's in between is purely utilitarian, though.
  27. A downer that too often resorts to melodrama.
  28. In general, it's a confusing, rather shapeless disappointment.
  29. The acting is OK, but none of the leads has the kind of sizzle that might have turned this into something as special as another film set roughly in the same era, "Diner.''
