22% The Odd Couple II (1998) " Unfortunately--no offense, now--this is mainly a case of the Old Couple, given the mediocre direction of Howard Deutch and, mostly, the surprisingly bland script by Neil Simon." — Film Journal International
Posted Sep 9, 2002
—— Nick and Jane (1998) " Not much of the humor works at all, and there aren't many sparks generated by the putative, last-reel lovers Wheeler-Nicholson and McCaffrey." — Film Journal International
Posted Sep 9, 2002
17% The Keeper (2004) " Turns into the narrowest of unsatisfying melodramas." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 19, 2001
25% Little Boy Blue (1998) " Boston has written some excellent characters, and under Antonio Tibaldi's astute direction, the actors are uniformly superlative, right down to the walk-ons." — Film Journal International

86% Wild Man Blues (1998) " Whatever one thinks about Woody Allen, you'll probably find it in here, except why Americans don't much turn out to see his movies." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27% U.S. Marshals (1997) " It suffers, too, from what plagues the big, brawny action engines: The mechanics of the generic thrills and spills override the logic of the narrative." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31% Home Fries (1998) " What's interesting is pretty much unintentional, centering in the film's performances, which are excellent indeed." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43% Mr. Nice Guy (Yat goh hiu yan) (1997) " Even in an 'off' picture like Mr. Nice Guy, it is impossible not to like [Chan]; he's so open and good-natured and takes pride in what he does." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
50% Ayn Rand - A Sense of Life (1998) " Gains little visually from big-screen exposure." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
9% Species II (1998) " Species II may be notable only in that it is an extreme, sadly robust example of the troubling trend of modern horror films to give sex a bad name." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36% I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) " A scream but no Scream, I Know is a clean, efficient horror picture out at the perfect box-office time." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42% Bean (1997) " Not only do we not care about Bean, we want him to just go away and not bother us anymore." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23% Patch Adams (1998) " Director Tom Shadyac and screenwriter Steve Oedekerk have sleekly outfitted a sudsy feel-good formula into an entertaining holiday comic tear-gusher." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43% Dr. Dolittle (1998) " The writers have sausaged the story (really just a situation) into simple and simplistic sitcom formula, which delivers some laughs." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
54% What Dreams May Come (1998) " The problem here is pretty much everything." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
63% Funny Games (1998) " Remarkably well-directed and played, the crisp images perfectly framed by cinematographer Jürgen Jürges for maximum effect." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36% Great Expectations (1998) " If this movie were a sandwich, it'd be ham on white bread." — Film Journal International
