    This is a movie that's really about how much fun Glenn Milstead had being Divine, and how he — perhaps unexpectedly — found so many fans willing to go along for the ride. That's an American success story worth celebrating.

    A pleasantly lightweight confection.

    The movie's already peaked, even before the opening credits.

    The cast of Rain is first-rate, especially Wierzbicki and Peirse, whose tense relationship is as loving as it is competitive.

    This is Forster's show, and he doesn't disappoint.

    Just don't think about what's going on, and you should be OK.

    Isn't perfect, but it's fun, and Tim Allen shines

    A marvelously subversive, slyly manipulative effort.

    Nicholson is terrific here, in a role that demands he act, rather than just be Jack.

    This sophomoric film has little to do with Elvis, and everything to do with putting as much carnage as possible on screen under the guise of art, poetry, choreography, taxidermy.

    Novocaine is neither funny enough to be a comedy, nor dark enough to be a true film noir. Like the drug of the title, it just kind of leaves you numb and anxious to taste the good stuff once again.

    Bottom line: Juwanna Mann is a drag - in every sense of the word.

    Like watching a 90-minute game of the video game Asteroids - all bang and no buck.

    Go see Crossroads if you want to hear Britney sing or see her wear next-to-nothing. But otherwise, avoid this train wreck at all costs.

    This would be an excellent movie from a first-time filmmaker, but from one of America's premiere directors, it's a disappointment.

    The strong young cast keeps the film from being a total waste.

    It's considerably flawed. It has a middle that's padded, a look that could use a few more light bulbs, a protagonist who never earns our sympathy, and an audio mix that leans much too heavily on the bass, often making it impossible to understand what's being said.

    Plot-wise, this is strictly paint-by-numbers stuff.

    The film has a lot of right in it, including an ending that's suitably uncertain, but fraught with possibilities.

    The vocal canines appear for about 30 humorous seconds, in a dream sequence, and are then never seen again. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about the rest of the film, which runs an additional 98.5 excruciating minutes.

    There's a ton of joy in The Legend of 1900 -- but it's laid on so thick that one ends up more numbed than stirred, overcome by one too many Hallmark moments.

    It should come as no surprise that the dogs are as cute as caninely possible. But is it conceivable that, once you've seen 101 adorable dogs, 102 seems redundant?

    See it to be reminded (if you need further reminding) of this actress' remarkable range. Otherwise, take a pass.
