52% Allah Made Me Funny: Live in Concert (2008) "Allah may have made these men funny, but he didn't bestow much in the way of filmmaking skills. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 3, 2008
1.5/4 43% Death Race (2008) "A movie in which road rage is justified. Yours will be, too, if you spend $10 on this. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Aug 22, 2008
2.5/4 48% Bottle Shock (2008) "Rickman's fish-out-of-water act (in farm country, the man never loses his suit and tie) makes for Bottle Shock's sunniest moments. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News

2/4 51% Nim's Island (2008) "I'm not sure what's more depressing: seeing potential tween megastar Abigail Breslin underused or watching Jodie Foster clutching a Progresso soup can for dear life and smacking head-first into a tree. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 4, 2008
40% The Grand (2008) "[Director] Penn could not have selected a more spoof-worthy venue than the world of high-stakes Texas Hold 'Em, and he has packed his film with actors -- many of them sitcom or sketch comedy stars -- who get the point of the exercise. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 21, 2008
2.5/4 81% The Business of Being Born (2008) "Contending that America's mothers would be far better off if deliveries were taken out of the hands of obstetricians and hospitals, director/producer Abby Epstein and executive producer Ricki Lake will push buttons, but they won't jab them. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 18, 2008
3.5/4 98% The Life of Reilly (2007) "Assembled from Reilly's final performance of Save It for the Stage in North Hollywood, Life of Reilly is as charming and disarmingly affecting as the man himself. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 9, 2007
2.5/4 33% Martian Child (2007) "You might expect a serious-minded movie about a troubled kid who really thinks he's from Mars to confront the fact that this kid really is troubled. Not so much, here. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 2, 2007
3/4 81% Quantum Hoops (2007) "These teams may be genuinely awful, or simply overmatched, but [director]Greenwald honors them, their brainy players and their Job-like coaches alike. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News

3/4 93% Blame It on Fidel (La Faute a Fidel) (2006) "Gavras' film captures both the time period and the queasy inconsistencies of childhood. And in Kervel, Gavras has found a real gem. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 14, 2007
2/4 73% I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With (2006) "Jeff Garlin, the former Second City actor who plays Larry David's manager on Curb Your Enthusiasm, has spun his solo show into a movie that's, alas, pretty light on laughs. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News

Posted May 18, 2007
2/4 27% Downtown: A Street Tale (2007) "[Director] Zielinski's attempts at serving up grunge and grittiness largely fall flat. Scenes of sex and drug use are typically accompanied by a swooning and intrusive soundtrack. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 11, 2007
2.5/4 50% Duck (2005) "Possessed of one of the most hangdog faces in Hollywood, Hall meshes expertly with the movie's hopeful sadness. That we watch him toting a live duck around without once losing his dignity -- or breaking out in laughter -- has to count for something. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted May 11, 2007

Posted Apr 27, 2007
3.5/4 43% In the Land of Women (2007) "Apart from leaning a bit much on his soundtrack and letting Olympia Dukakis indulge her crazy-granny jones, Kasdan does his work with a largely steady hand. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 20, 2007
3/4 64% The TV Set (2007) "The TV Set, written and directed by longtime tube toiler Jake Kasdan, gets it both right and funny. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 7, 2007
1.5/4 8% The Reaping (2007) "Amidst such mayhem, there isn't much for a two time Oscar winner like Swank to do with herself, except reach out soulfully to the girl who may be the Antichrist. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 6, 2007
3/4 34% TMNT (2007) "The action is breakneck and practically uninterrupted. We're talking a young boy's dream come true. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Mar 23, 2007
2.5/4 65% Antik├Ârper (Antibodies) (2007) "As an exercise in watching a bad guy burrow too deeply into a good guy's head, Antibodies proves more gross than psychologically unsettling. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Feb 16, 2007

Posted Oct 20, 2006
1.5/4 20% The Marine (2006) "There's not much about The Marine that's even slightly diverting. Including, alas, John Cena, the film's villain-dispatching star. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 13, 2006
0.5/4 12% Little Man (2006) "Mr. Palminteri's primary duties include glowering at henchmen Bruno and Roscoe, saying 'get me that diamond' a few times and, ultimately, taking a toy airplane to the crotch. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News

Posted Jun 16, 2006
2/4 20% The Wild (2006) "The Wild is not a sequel to last year's delightful Madagascar. Rather it's a half-baked zoo animal quest story buoyed by a father-and-son-learn-a-valuable-lesson reconciliation. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Apr 14, 2006
2.5/4 22% Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School (2006) "With a few too many characters and plot fibers to track and about 100 minutes to do it, Miller goes for easy resolutions and leaves a lot of questions unanswered. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News

Posted May 13, 2005
2.5/4 63% Ladies in Lavender (2005) "A sweet and easy tale, certainly, but is it really the strongest use of a couple of grand Dames? " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News

Posted Aug 13, 2004
2.5/4 11% A Cinderella Story (2004) "The premise -- scripted by Leigh Dunlap with a reported uncredited polish by Callie Khouri -- is largely preposterous, but Rosman embraces rather than evades those obstacles. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
