40 Days and 40 Nights (2002)

"'An admittedly raunchy but smart satirical poke at sexual politics in the information age. It's also funnier than we have any right to expect.'"

Men in Black II (2002)

"'The once-dynamic duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith phones it in - and a by-the-numbers script all but hands them the receiver.'"

Hey Arnold! The Movie (2002)

"I still can't surmise what possible appeal the football-headed crusader and his neighborhood gang might have for anyone who's evolved beyond primordial ooze."

Minority Report (2002)

"Any Orwellian cautionary tale will fall upon more ears if Spielberg delivers the goods for the popcorn crowd in a tidily concluded package - but those ears will be deaf ones.'"

"Some Like It Hot on the Hardwood proves once again that a man in drag is not in and of himself funny."

Scooby-Doo (2002)

"A feature-length in joke that has marvelous fun with the decades of homoerotic and reefer-smoking subtexts assigned to it by people with entirely too much time on their hands."

The Bourne Identity (2002)

"... a savory sip of cognac in a Pabst Blue Ribbon summer of overbaked fantasy franchises and witless popcorn thrillers."

Joshua (2002)

"What's refreshing about 'Joshua' is its acknowledgment that a spiritual 'message' can permeate without constant reminders of 'Look alive out there - here comes a Sunday school lesson!'"

Unfaithful (2002)

"... works solely on the power of its lead performances and a script that manages to stay smart, in spite of its director's mouth-breathing clamor to film a Harlequin novel."

How High (2001)

"Sinfully tasteless cinema was everywhere in 2001 - but this movie is so bad it's Freudian."

Spider-Man (2002)

"... Raimi delivers a first-rate entertainment for the summer crowd, slick as an extra-large popcorn with butter - and about as substantial - when he has all the ingredients for a truly exhilarating experience with a life beyond the multiplex."

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D (2002)

"What Lucas needs to wrap up this franchise properly is a return to the fundamentals: less overplotted hooey, more thick blue liquid."

Undercover Brother (2002)

"'Undercover Brother' comes packed with possibilities, but can't keep its groove thing shaking with enough consistency to be any more than a 'Saturday Night Live' sketch that goes on too long."

The Sum of All Fears (2002)

"Is Ben Affleck such an indispensable talent -- or box-office draw -- that his presence is worth wrecking an entire film franchise to accomodate his youth?"

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002)

""The Prince of Magnolias Floats on a Fried Green American Quilt" ... a big ol' crawfish boil of Southern-fried sentimentality that throws every imaginable chick-flick cliché into the pot and heats to a healthy simmer."
