Road Trip (2000)

"This new comedy is a major surprise: one of just a few films in recent years to show that low-brow humor and great casting can carry a movie for 90 minutes."

Three Kings (1999)

"Three Kings is a smart, entertaining movie that dares to mix Hollywood-style, testosterone-filled action filmmaking with a conscience, an opinion and a brain."

Bedazzled (2000)

"Some big laughs, though they're grounded more in slapstick and sexual embarrassment than the original's still-acute social observation."

Diamonds (1999)

"Even in his prime, Douglas couldn't have saved himself from this cliche-ridden script."

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Bill Pearis

Black and White (2002)

"Feels like a random collection of scenes vaguely centered on the fascination rich white kids feel for hip-hop music and the glamorous gangster life that supposedly goes along with it."

Boiler Room (2000)

"The film feels a little hung out to dry and, like its characters, lacking purpose and spending its wealth a little too loosely."

Rear Window (1954)

"Sunlight, light bulbs, lenses and shadows are more than suspense window-dressing in this one -- in many instances, they are the suspense."

The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)

The Cell (2000)

"Trying hard to project soulfulness, Lopez comes across as whiney and spacey."

Notting Hill (1999)

Sleepy Hollow (1999)

"The visuals are so breathtaking, and the film initially so creepy, suspenseful and violent that the movie's weaker points are for the most part well-hidden."

The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999)

The Straight Story (1999)

"Farnsworth's direct, dignified performance is so honest that it should earn him an Oscar nomination."

Up at the Villa (2000)

Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999)

Sandra Ramani

Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999)

"Energetically acted but too in love with its own outrageousness, Drop Dead Gorgeous goes for the jugular of beauty pageant culture and ends up leaving only a hickey."

Shaft (2000)

The Tic Code (1998)

"While far from terrible, The Tic Code ultimately lacks the sophistication that separates a feature-length film from a TV movie-of-the-week."

The General's Daughter (1999)

"After Con Air's seizure-inducing parade of quick cuts and explosions, West settles back into a decaffeinated style that untangles this web at a gradual, engrossing pace."

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Jason Kaufman

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

"It's Kubrick telling a tediously elaborate joke at a party, using his eccentric genius and charisma to keep you captivated against all odds."
