    If music be the food of love, Cool & Crazy could stand a few more hits from the spice rack.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Ed Park
    As rich in incidental detail as it is narratively diffuse.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 10 Ed Park
    Preachy and humorless, Eban and Charley shocks only by the quality of its numbing solipsism.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Mike Leigh mainstay Timothy Spall deftly shades in the designated goner, fellow "Still Crazy" alum Bill Nighy is sweetly wispy as the capable fop, and anger-management counselor Olivia Williams trembles pleasantly as usual.

    • 50 Ed Park
    All stand-up comedy is oral aggression, but Cho's is an especially fascinating strain.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Has shades of such oleaginous insider-treading as "The Player" and "Celebrity," but the mood, like the lighting, is altogether sunnier.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 10 Ed Park
    It's about following your dreams, no matter what your parents think. Socrates motions for hemlock.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Ed Park
    If The Last Man were the last movie left on earth, there would be a toss-up between presiding over the end of cinema as we know it and another night of delightful hand shadows.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Ed Park
    Posner's dishearteningly unsophisticated treatment itself rings false.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    Bones splits the difference between horror and social commentary, with pallid returns.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    "Sopranos" vet Dominic Chianese is squandered as a banal father confessor.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    Less a romance than a feature-length plug for 'N Sync and its personalities -- and so, like all ads, not meant for "conscious consumption." Which opens the blissful avenue of sleep.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 20 Ed Park
    In The One the maze of death leads only to exhaustion -- a solipsistic extension of Bruce Lee pacing the room of mirrors at the end of "Enter the Dragon."
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Ed Park
    As genre comeuppance, this might have been nasty fun, but the movie barely makes sense, with its unbelievable naïveté and arbitrary flashbacks.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    If nothing else, Sophie Fillières's Ouch! is a secret pop culture index.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Ed Park
    Less effective in dramatizing the choices facing second-generation Indian Americans than as a showcase for Sheetal Sheth's terrific hair.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    Bears some resemblance to "All About My Mother," but lacks its compatriot's flamboyance, content to traffic in glib banalities and unwitting self-absorption.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 10 Ed Park
    Contains exactly three decent jokes, all stuffed in the last 15 minutes.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    Unsettling in spots, Princesa ultimately glosses over the futility of Fernanda's plight, her misery rapidly erased.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Ed Park
    Too stupid to be satire, too obviously hateful to be classified otherwise, Frank Novak's irritating slice of lumpen life is as reliably soul-killing as its title is nearly meaningless. ("Good Housekeeping" magazine's legal muscle forced a last-minute change.)
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Ed Park
    The summer's most romantic interspecies love story.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    Hardly a nuanced portrait of a young woman's breakdown, the film nevertheless works up a few scares, particularly a tense call-number hunt in the library stacks.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 10 Ed Park
    The only drama is in waiting to hear how John Malkovich's reedy consigliere will pronounce his next line.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    Ultimately everything feels one-sided and sanitized.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Ed Park
    Though it's high time for a probing drama that illuminates the labyrinth of America's immigration system, those responsible for Green Card Fever should have their artistic licenses revoked.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Ed Park
    Ismail Merchant's screen adaptation retains much of the novel's incident, but fumbles both the humor and moral ambivalence.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Ed Park
    Some reliably vertiginous fight sequences (rope bridge, rooftop signage) and modest flight experiments liven up the mix, but for all the leads' individual appeal, they seem to occupy slightly different films.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Ed Park
    That the e-graveyard holds as many good ideas as bad is the cold comfort that Chin's film serves up with style and empathy.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    An anti-"Rififi" in which nearly everybody loses their cool, not after the big score goes down but repeatedly and neurotically throughout.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Ed Park
    As a dirtier Deepak, Mistry is blankly sweet, suitable for his role as Subcontinental Rorschach.
