  1. A loving portrait of a lady--but who probably would be just as happy not to have this or any portrait at all.
  2. Film lovers will--possibly against their better judgment--love Jones' Hitch.
  3. Outrageous, eccentric, funny, campy--and too creepy for small kids.
  4. It aims for epic, and sometimes hits epic--but it's a bit shallow.

    In Vogue doesn't get quite as far "in" as one might hope, but the mag and its polished crew never fail to intrigue.
  5. For Mel Brooks lovers everywhere (you know who you are), but it's on the light side.
  6. Fans will be pleased, though they shouldn't be too surprised by the major plot development Sunday--it's obvious by half.
  7. A surprisingly revisionist take on one of the most controversial trials of the decade.
  8. You have plain old smashmouth elemental TV story devices--good guys, bad guys, evil corporations, a family unit, and a headlong rush toward the Truth, whatever that may be. Plus this special bonus: Intimations of Jack Bauer.
  9. Engaging docudrama with lots of interesting detail. Worth watching.
  10. Initial impression: It fits. Fans of Chalke will remain fans, and everyone who long ago realized that Elizabeth Perkins was the best thing about "Weeds" will as well.
  11. Leonardo may not like what Starz has turned him into, but you probably won't mind this joy ride.
  12. The intrigue continues and The Borgias remains one of TV's more reliable potboilers.
  13. While the story is briskly and engagingly told, with some key players debriefed, there's not a lot new here. It's a very good beginner's history.
  14. Takes time to get into, but once in, you're in.
  15. Her shrewd, straightforward perspective and her semisweet, offhand attitude make her reflections fresh and relatable.
  16. This is almost too clever, funny and ironic for MTV.
  17. Good, compelling, creepy start.
  18. Looks like a summer winner.
  19. The Bridge is highly absorbing.
  20. The characters, scripts and performances are surprisingly smart--almost, dare I say, deep. And you still get the comic humiliations, nasty rivalries and teeny bikinis.
  21. Edgier, more sharply drawn, while that Sorkian chatter remains at a very high boil.
  22. Terrifically hard to love, but some superb performances indicate that at least it's worth the effort to try.
  23. All charisma and command, [Idris Elb] blasts through the screen in every shot while his performance is a constant reminder that the craft, at its best, is a gossamer of countless little details that add up to something magical.
  24. The acting is first-rate, and so is the writing, but the violence is appalling, and not just appalling, but creatively appalling.
  25. Mostly fascinating tales from all the presidents' men that occasionally need (sometimes badly) journalistic balance and perspective.
  26. Nothing scary here, but Hollow is fun enough, and promising enough, too.
  27. Easily one of fall's better new comedies, but don't expect to be blown away yet. The pilot offers just a taste of what's to come, which is plenty good enough.
  28. Spader seems to be the only one who actually gets the gameplay here.... And the script seems to incite his appetite.
  29. Smart, intriguing thriller, but the opener is slightly overheated.
