1/4 9% Norbit (2007) " If there's no limit to your love of fat jokes, this is the movie for you." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 7, 2010
0/4 9% Bratz: The Movie (2007) " How do our flighty young heroines fight back? By shopping, of course. There is no problem, it seems, a new tube top and mini-skirt can't fix." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 7, 2010
0.5/4 3% Zoom (2006) " Call this one Galaxy Quest -- another movie in which Tim Allen plays an arrogant jerk who learns lessons about teamwork and friendship -- without the humor, charm, or wit." — Boston Phoenix

2/4 28% Copying Beethoven, (Klang der Stille) (2006) " Stuck between Kruger's blankness and Harris's overemoting, the film never finds a balance." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 6, 2010
0.5/4 4% Material Girls (2006) " An insipid mess not worthy of the tweens who flock to such flicks." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 6, 2010
0.5/4 1% Daddy Day Camp (2007) " It all comes down to the "Olympiad," a battle of idiotic proportions between the two camps, and if you can't guess what happens next, this just may be the movie for you." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 6, 2010
2/4 47% The Holiday (2006) " A reminder to all producers: alluding to iconic romantic comedies in a bid for legitimacy can be a dangerous game, even when you have appealing stars." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 6, 2010
5% Good Luck Chuck (2007) " The only plausible scenario in this movie is the idea that a woman would be so annoyed by Dane Cook, she'd be willing to put a curse on him." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 6, 2010
2.5/4 93% Enchanted (2007) " It rides on the charm of its actors, particularly Amy Adams as the hapless, homicidally upbeat princess and James Marsden as her would-be prince charming." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 6, 2010
1.5/4 6% Yours, Mine & Ours (2005) " Only the youngest will find this mess amusing." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Dec 6, 2005
3/4 82% Serenity (2005) " The entire cast from the series appears in the film, and at least a few seem poised for breakout status, especially Nathan Fillion." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Sep 30, 2005
3/4 85% The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) " The adult sex comedy is making a comeback." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 27, 2005
1/4 4% Fascination (2005) " The most fascinating thing about this movie is why they thought anyone would want to see it." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Feb 5, 2005
7% Surviving Christmas (2004) " Survive this movie and Christmas will be a breeze." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 30, 2004
46% Shall We Dance (2004) " Shall We Dance? gives us characters whose lives are transformed by the beauty and joy of dancing without ever showing us how." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 19, 2004
5% The Cookout (2004) " Director Lance Rivera raises some legitimate questions about moving up versus selling out and the commodification of professional athletes, but he couldn't care less about answering them." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Sep 11, 2004
52% The Notebook (2004) " This film tries to evoke the 1940s but never quite finds the right tone, coming off instead like a big costume party." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 3, 2004
15% Garfield - The Movie (2004) " It's not much of a story, and director Peter Hewitt seems content to flesh it out with bland staging and characterizations." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jun 12, 2004
94% The Triplets of Belleville (2003) " Virtually dialogue free, Les triplettes is full of funny and bizarre images, often in the same frame." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jan 27, 2004
81% The Barbarian Invasions (Les Invasions barbares) (2003) " Touching on the themes that affect us all in the twilight of one man's life, Arcand has created a moving portrait of the world we live in and his struggle against it." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jan 27, 2004
77% Peter Pan (2003) " Pirates, mermaids, and Indians might seem like kid stuff, but Hogan makes his characters real people." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Dec 27, 2003
38% Brother Bear (2003) " Disney's latest animated film is, if not exactly a return to form, a return to the spirit of The Lion King." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Nov 1, 2003
41% Freddy vs. Jason (2003) " Their final showdown will probably please fans, but everyone else will be wondering whether those 10 years couldn't have been more profitably spent." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Sep 13, 2003
81% The Good Girl (2002) " The cast...is uniformly terrific, but that can't save The Good Girl from sinking into a funk." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 17, 2002
81% Stuart Little 2 (2002) " The film looks great, full of bright, primary colors that complement the slightly unreal world they depict." — Boston Phoenix
