4/5 80% Anthem (1997) " Anthem stands as a unique testament to the vigor and scope of the American way of life; this is the rare kind of film that should be placed in a time capsule for future generations so they might have a better appreciation of our moment in history." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 19, 2007
3.5/5 100% The Deserted Station (2003) " A modern gem of Iran's always interesting filmmaking industry." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 3, 2004
2/5 55% The Ladykillers (2004) " It is certainly curious to contemplate how the combination of the genius, subversive Coen brothers with the talent of the world's biggest movie star could produce a film that feels so thoroughly robbed of its best treasures." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 3, 2004
2.5/5 45% Happy Here and Now (2002) " While technically brilliant and gorgeous to watch, Happy Here and Now feels as unfocused and uneven as it is ambitious and intellectually frustrating." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 27, 2003
4/5 79% Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) " May Bubba Ho-Tep play at midnight drive-ins until Elvis indeed returns." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 27, 2003
1/5 71% New Suit (2005) " While New Suit might not be the worst film ever made, it is without question one of the worst films about Hollywood ever made." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 27, 2003
2/5 37% Spun (2003) " Not worthwhile if you value cogent storytelling or the dinner you just ate." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2003
2.5/5 34% Poolhall Junkies (2002) " In his desperate attempt to make a super-cool movie with great actors, Callahan has only managed to assemble a super-cool group of actors with little to do." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 28, 2003
1.5/5 29% Super Sucker (2003) " The quirky and bizarre nature of the material would have been better suited to a director more nimble with absurd, broad and physical humor." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 24, 2003
2/5 91% Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist (1997) " It contains language and depicts sexual acts that most will find appalling and intolerable, and this fact overshadows any enticing human element the film tries to extend." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 25, 2002
1.5/5 44% Better Housekeeping (2002) " The actors improvise and scream their way around this movie directionless, lacking any of the rollicking dark humor so necessary to make this kind of idea work on screen." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 13, 2002
1/5 56% Deep Blue Sea (1999) " Harlin, in telling a standard tale of morality and conflict, turns in a plotless, empty picture that dissolves into an emotionless videogame." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
74% Eye Of God (1997) " It's a shame that this strong cast had such weak material to play." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2/5 8% An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn (1998) " A hollow, tedious (even at 86 minutes it's long), and dated inside joke (constant references to Michael Ovitz and the Japanese might have been funny in `95), that probably will not translate to audiences that are not employed in the movie business." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
0/5 20% Urban Legend (1998) " Reprehensible and laughable." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
2/5 38% 20 Dates (1999) " Had the filmmaker gone the path of the true, entertaining, and unpretentious faux-documentary, the audience would have cheered our love-starved hero along his entire journey rather than restlessly waiting for a date to strangle him with a camera cable." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
4/5 63% Clay Pigeons (1998) " Actually brings a clean, new and very funny edge to the weathered genre of crime and sleaze." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2002
86% The Way We Laughed (1998) " All perspective on the characters and situations are dissolved, leaving the audience with little more than some lovely photography to enjoy." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 22, 2001
31% America's Sweethearts (2001) " Save for a few crackling wisecracks from Billy Crystal, and some moments of delicious is-she -acting-or -is-it-real insanity from Catherine Zeta-Jones, the fine cast sleepwalks through this film." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 20, 2001
90% Divided We Fall (2001) " Attempts a mix of subtle drama and tragedy, but loses much if not all meaning in the process." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 8, 2001
11% Freddy Got Fingered (2001) " Offers nothing more than the chance for Tom Green the actor to just be as insane and disgusting as possible without an arbiter to help him sort out the funny from the way unfunny." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 20, 2001
15% Tomcats (2001) " Full of manic comedy bits seemingly pilfered from the reject pile of the brothers Zucker and Farrelly." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 2, 2001
43% Someone Like You (2001) " Separates and identifies characters not on the basis of their reality and frailty as human beings but as the total of their longwinded whining about their love lives." — Boxoffice Magazine
