    It's a wonderful reminder of the importance of music in the movies.

    Intelligently written, sharply directed, and beautifully played.
    • Mr. Showbiz

    • 65 Kevin Maynard
    Works so hard at being pleasant and ingratiating that it wears out its welcome.

    At their trenchant, tuneful best, the Barenaked Ladies take flip comic spins on serious subjects (alcoholism, heartbreak). But offstage, they have nothing of substance to reveal.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The flat, gross-out live-action bits, directed by (surprise!) Peter and Bobby Farrelly, don't jive with the zippy, Tex Avery-style animated segments, directed by former storyboard artists Piet Kroon and Tom Sito.

    The most heartfelt tribute to women -- specifically, actresses -- he's (Almodovar) ever made.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Maynard
    A gritty, well-acted urban drama with lots of humanity.

    Despite being full of Oscar-winning talent, this is still just a better-dressed, drawn-out episode of "Touched by an Angel."

    As a snapshot of Hungarian history, Glamour's watchability trumps that of "Sunshine" — the droll absurdity of the former leaves a much deeper impression than the latter's bruising moralism.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 65 Kevin Maynard
    Features a sexy, appealing cast, especially Guillermo Diaz.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Kevin Maynard
    Especially timely in light of the current escalation in Palestinian-Israeli aggressions, but this is one sad story that would pack a staggering punch in any political climate.

    Thanks to the first-time filmmaker's attention to character, Gun Shy is worth at least a shot at a matinee.

    Like its accordion-filled score, it's nothing but a golden moldie.

    42 Up is filled with truth and poignancy as these people reflect on their first half of their lives, their goals, ambitions, and how they, for the most part, succeeded in reinventing them.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 29 Kevin Maynard
    Populated with whiny, unappealing characters that are impossible to care about and flatly staged sitcomish set-pieces...this lame Canadian import's a real woofer.

    All in all, she comes off as quite a complex creature.

    A must-see for avid fans and a welcome primer for nascent hip-shakers everywhere.

    Li's light touch and explosive fighting skills deserve a better vehicle than this overcooked pot of New Jack suey.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Kevin Maynard
    Psychological thrillers depend on convincing audiences to suspend disbelief, but this one doesn't manage that for a moment.
    • Mr. Showbiz

    • 100 Kevin Maynard
    The film ends with a surprisingly upbeat coda. But Startup.com leaves us with a sense that our heroes' idealism will be forever lost.

    Frankly, there wouldn't have been enough shtick here to warrant an SNL skit. And if the material isn't even up to those standards, then who the hell green-lit it as a feature?

    • 65 Kevin Maynard
    The appealing cast makes the most of the derivative story.

    This is sub-par Aaron Spelling sludge all the way.

    What's right as rain with Diary is the casting.

    An enjoyable female buddy caper -- more "Outrageous Fortune" than "Thelma and Louise."

    O
    Too much of a locker-room melodrama to make for great tragedy.

    • 60 Kevin Maynard
    The film has an unabashed romantic tone that's matched by Wenders' usual flair for visual drama.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 74 Kevin Maynard
    It's another subtle, fantastic performance from McKee ("Notting Hill," "Croupier").
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Kevin Maynard
    A uniquely personal, vibrant mosaic of the American dream, and like a dream, it evaporates beautifully before our eyes.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    There's really nothing more to this by-the-numbers, ailment-of-the-week fodder dressed up with a classy cast.
