Big Momma's House (2000)

" The saddest thing about Big Momma's House is that it wastes a talented cast in roles that force them to act like idiots in order for the plot to advance. "

The In Crowd (2000)

" Porno theater patrons who stumble into this pic purely for its endless landscape of girlie grillwork will get their money's worth. "

Seven (Se7en) (1995)

" Shaky camera shots, dark sets and a disturbing script that takes its characters to the extremes of emotion all contribute to the film creating a unsettled feeling that stays with you for a couple hours after the credits roll. "

Erin Brockovich (2000)

" Soderbergh artfully navigates a minefield of inherent clichés ... with such clever cadence and novelty that even these familiar scenes are recast in a refreshingly idiosyncratic mold. "

The Mod Squad (1999)

" If it looks like a bad '70s cop show, sounds like a bad '70s cop show and has a plot like a bad '70s cop show, what's the point of making a feature film? Just watch a bad '70s cop show, if you can find one. "
