Posted Nov 4, 2004
2.5/5 49% Alfie (2004) " The movie is a sermon about the evils of bachelorhood, and it's probably best that men keep their girlfriends from seeing it. Things could get ugly." — Las Vegas Mercury

Posted Nov 1, 2004
2/5 26% Anacondas - The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004) " It's fun to see the characters get eaten up. It's the people who remain alive and talking that may disturb the viewer." — Las Vegas Mercury
