Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

" If this were a movie about characters rather than overcooked situations and desperate slapstick -- and a lot shorter -- we might have had something. "

Dear Wendy (2005)

Flightplan (2005)

" The third act begins with another twist - but this one is so arduous, absurd and out of character for the film that the entire plot, stretching back to Scene One, is sabotaged "

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (2005)

Just Like Heaven (2005)

The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)

An Unfinished Life (2005)
