1/4 6% Son of the Mask (2005) "Icky and incompetent (special effects aside) in equal parts, this groaner makes 1994's The Mask look like something you'd study in a film graduate course at NYU. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 17, 2005

Posted Feb 10, 2005
3/4 96% Born Into Brothels (2004) "Filmmakers Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman find intermittent beauty without pushing our sentimental buttons. But the title promises more than the movie delivers. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 3, 2005
1.5/4 10% The Wedding Date (2005) "The movie goes wrong from the start by simply throwing us into the action and asking us to identify with Messing's desperate scheme. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 3, 2005
1.5/4 13% Hide and Seek (2005) "The movie's only rewards are a few unintentional laughs, as when the sheriff (Dylan Baker) calls Emily a 'cute kid' after a long stretch in which she's been acting and looking battier than Sunset Boulevard's Norma Desmond. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 28, 2005
1.5/4 35% Racing Stripes (2005) "Almost everyone in this has done better, and those who haven't, like young Ms. Panettiere, have plenty of time to do so. " ‐ USA Today

Posted Dec 17, 2004
3.5/4 53% Spanglish (2004) "A performer's showcase. While the pleasantly sentimental comedy doesn't bowl you over with cinematic technique, it's likely to make audiences happy. " ‐ USA Today
