10% I Dreamed of Africa (2000) " Director Hugh Hudson gives us a Kenya that is dusty, bleak and generally unappealing. Rarely has a movie about Africa aroused so few feelings of escapism." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/5 22% Mr. Deeds (2002) " While Brill's direction is crisp, Herlihy's jokes aren't much." — Orlando Weekly

12% Double Take (2001) " There's nothing intrinsically worthless about clich├ęd comedy; it merely requires great skill in execution. Double Take lacks great skill in execution." — Orlando Weekly

42% Miss Congeniality (2000) " Without help from either script or director, poor Bullock gets stuck as a distant runner-up in this featherweight farce." — Orlando Weekly
