"Was it mass hysteria? Were they all hypnotized? Did they lose some dreadful bet?"

Josie and the Pussycats (2001)

"It is funny ... with a sharp script by directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan that's also sneakily subversive."

Save the Last Dance (2001)

"Sweet teens and near-teens who don't know any better will probably flock to it. Smart parents who know better, however, will smartly stay away."

Quills (2000)

"So bold, ambitious and forceful that it practically has a right to be a good movie. It's not, but it may be the year's most memorable bad one."

Highlander - Endgame (2000)

Lucky Numbers (2000)

"A black comedy really works only if everybody is equally heartless... But Travolta seems determined to play a hero, and the movie gets knocked off balance."

The Hurricane (1999)

"Holding it all together is Washington's ferocious, bare-knuckle performance as Rubin Carter."

Men of Honor (2000)

"That much of it really happened doesn't matter; right here, on screen, it doesn't convince."

Magnolia (1999)

"Magnolia is real, full-tilt filmmaking, seducing our souls and nervous systems with a sensory, kinesthetic rush."

Ready to Rumble (2000)

"There are just endless gags aimed at 11-year-old boys."

Whipped (1999)

"Cohen's direction is as crude and cramped as his thinking. Imagine a cheesy community theater devoted to dramatizing bathroom graffiti."

Autumn in New York (2000)

"There's nothing magical about the romance in Autumn in New York, and nothing even very tragic about its love affair."

Girl, Interrupted (1999)

Digimon - The Movie (2000)

"The movie doesn't even try for coherence. Each of its three distinct episodes is barely comprehensible in itself."

Gossip (1999)

"Gossip suits its title. It's exaggerated, untrustworthy and annoyingly hard to ignore."

Center Stage (2000)

"The movie is quick and discreetly sexy and definitely goopy."

Love and Basketball (2000)

"Gina Prince-Bythewood's debut movie makes up in heart and spirit for its shortfalls in originality."

Love Stinks (1999)

"In the last 10 minutes, the film even flickers to real life. But that doesn't make up for the more than 80 minutes that's gone before."
