Posted Jan 8, 2003
1.5/4 12% Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002) " There are a handful of genuinely comical moments in Eight Crazy Nights, but the whole thing reeks of a super-indulgent, cobbled-together vanity trip by a star whose ego obviously leads him to believe he can put anything on screen." — New York Post

Posted Nov 8, 2002
1.5/4 48% Femme Fatale (2002) " De Palma fools around with split screens and slo-mo, but no amount of cinematic artifice can varnish over the fact that this is simply a bad film." — New York Post
Posted Nov 6, 2002
2/4 34% The Weight of Water (2001) " The action switches between past and present, but the material link is too tenuous to anchor the emotional connections that purport to span a 125-year divide." — New York Post
Posted Nov 1, 2002
1/4 18% Love in the Time of Money (2002) " An exercise in cynicism every bit as ugly as the shabby digital photography and muddy sound." — New York Post
Posted Nov 1, 2002

Posted Oct 11, 2002
2/4 54% The Transporter (2002) " Another big, dumb action movie in the vein of XXX, The Transporter is riddled with plot holes big enough for its titular hero to drive his sleek black BMW through." — New York Post
Posted Oct 11, 2002
1.5/4 20% Knockaround Guys (2002) " Any one episode of The Sopranos would send this ill-conceived folly to sleep with the fishes." — New York Post
Posted Oct 11, 2002
2.5/4 51% The Man from Elysian Fields (2001) " Lasker's canny, meditative script distances sex and love, as Byron and Luther ... realize they can't get no satisfaction without the latter." — New York Post
Posted Oct 4, 2002
2.5/4 54% Welcome to Collinwood (2002) " The whole cast looks to be having so much fun with the slapstick antics and silly street patois, tossing around obscure expressions like Bellini and Mullinski, that the compact 86 minutes breezes by." — New York Post
Posted Oct 4, 2002
1/4 72% Pipe Dream (2001) " The smug, oily demeanor that Donovan adopts throughout the stupidly named Pipe Dream is just repulsive." — New York Post
Posted Oct 4, 2002

Posted Sep 27, 2002

Posted Sep 27, 2002
3/4 59% Skins (2002) " Skins has a desolate air, but Eyre, a Native American raised by white parents, manages to infuse the rocky path to sibling reconciliation with flashes of warmth and gentle humor." — New York Post

2.5/4 18% Trapped (2002) " A tightly drawn, propulsive thriller." — New York Post
Posted Sep 23, 2002
1/4 25% Snipes (2002) " Trying to make head or tail of the story in the hip-hop indie Snipes is enough to give you brain strain -- and the pay-off is negligible." — New York Post
Posted Sep 20, 2002
3/4 75% Secretary (2002) " Against all odds, director Steven Shainberg has managed to craft an oddly compassionate -- and often very funny -- tale of an emotionally symbiotic affair." — New York Post
Posted Sep 20, 2002
3/4 72% Das Experiment (The Experiment) (2001) " This deftly crafted film provokes the kind of creeping horror that Lord of the Flies memorably nailed." — New York Post
Posted Sep 18, 2002
1/4 41% Ted Bundy (2002) " A trashy, exploitative, thoroughly unpleasant experience." — New York Post
Posted Sep 13, 2002

Posted Sep 13, 2002
1.5/4 —— Agni Varsha: The Fire and the Rain (2002) " Too simply plotted and, even at two hours -- Bombay exports can often run to four -- the story drags." — New York Post
Posted Aug 30, 2002
2.5/4 59% Little Secrets (2002) " Budding adolescents shouldn't find much fault with this pleasantly diverting, albeit formulaic, teen drama." — New York Post
Posted Aug 23, 2002
2.5/4 83% Satin Rouge (2002) " A sensual performance from Abbass buoys the flimsy story, but her inner journey is largely unexplored and we're left wondering about this exotic-looking woman whose emotional depths are only hinted at." — New York Post
Posted Aug 23, 2002
2.5/4 73% The Last Kiss (L'Ultimo bacio) (2002) " Surprisingly for a comedy, it's the moments of heavy drama in The Last Kiss that pack the bigger punch." — New York Post
