Son of the Mask (2005)

"While the bright colors and occasional chuckles might amuse the younger set, this film will seem tediously long to the adult audiences who may even be outraged at the way they've blatantly and badly ripped off the Tex Avery style and plots." Premiere Magazine

Because of Winn-Dixie (2005)

"This simple coming-of-age tale tends to drift away on tangential story lines, but should still warm the hearts of audiences of all ages." ‐TV Guide

Son of the Mask (2005)

"Guterman is settling into a niche that blends live action with computer-animated effects, but all those high-tech hijinks are wasted with a sub-par plot line and idiotic action." ‐TV Guide

Fat Albert (2004)

"Fond, nostalgic memories of the '70s cartoon Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids will be instantly erased when the infectious theme song ends and this live-action feature's utterly preposterous story line begins." ‐TV Guide

Christmas With the Kranks (2004)

"Director Joe Roth misses an opportunity for true satire by making the neighbors such insanely over-the-top caricatures that the Kranks seem paragons of normality and perspective." ‐TV Guide

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie (2004)

"It isn't as consistently funny as some of the 11-minute TV episodes, but fans should be sufficiently absorbed that they'll be able to ignore the fact that it's a little waterlogged." ‐TV Guide

Noel (2004)

"The all-star cast do their best, but the individual stories are so truncated that they can't do much in the way of giving their characters real emotional depth." ‐TV Guide

Surviving Christmas (2004)

"Watching this holiday dud is like opening a fantastic Christmas present -- a gift that is exactly what you wanted and that, shortly thereafter, unravels, breaks, or otherwise falls apart." Premiere Magazine

Surviving Christmas (2004)

"Just like many real-life holiday get-togethers with the family, this comedy starts out pleasantly enough but degenerates into awkwardness and furtive watch-checking to see how much longer you have to suffer before you can leave." ‐TV Guide

Shall We Dance (2004)

"It's a surprisingly acceptable variation on a theme." ‐TV Guide

Hair Show (2004)

"What this rehash desperately needs is some real style, but even an industrial-strength can of hair spray can't keep it from coming undone." ‐TV Guide

Stage Beauty (2004)

"Crudup slips into the skin of the conflicted, bisexual Kynaston with astonishing ease and gives real emotional resonance to travails that could, frankly, seem more than a little frivolous." ‐TV Guide

Friday Night Lights (2004)

"Director Berg uses a smart blend of constantly moving camera and gritty film stock to give the film a documentary feel that's both engaging and perfectly suited to this story." ‐TV Guide

Raise Your Voice (2004)

"To be fair, the normally likeable Duff gives an adequate performance, but the poorly executed scenes in which Duff's singing voice was clearly post-dubbed and her own lack of emotional range keep the film from rising to whatever potential it may have had." ‐TV Guide

Ladder 49 (2004)

"Though handsomely mounted and efficiently staged, this mass of firefighter cliches swings wildly between heartstring-tugging melodrama, testosterone-fueled action and buddy comedy, weighed down by too many predictable twists and storytelling contrivances." ‐TV Guide

Wimbledon (2004)

"Features some delightful back-and-forth banter and kinetic tennis scenes that go a long way toward compensating for the formulaic plot line." ‐TV Guide

Evergreen (2004)

"While the film has striking moments, it feels padded with events that seem freighted with narrative weight but end up not mattering at all to the story." ‐TV Guide

Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

"Offers up more of everything: more bloody zombie dogs, more crazy corporate evildoers, more Milla Jovovich unclothed and more over-the-top action scenes." ‐TV Guide

The Cookout (2004)

"It took a village of screenwriters and story creators ... to cram just about every imaginable stereotype about African-Americans and white people ever conceived into this short, unappetizing comedy." ‐TV Guide

Without a Paddle (2004)

"For a while this buddy comedy sails along smoothly on elements borrowed from The Goonies, Deliverance and Road Trip, but the relentlessly unimaginative script eventually leaves it becalmed." ‐TV Guide

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004)

"The outlandish premise and greasy title may be a little hard to swallow, but Danny Leiner's proudly moronic film embraces its boneheadedness so cheerfully that its lowbrow charms are nearly irresistible." ‐TV Guide

National Geographic: Forces of Nature (2004)

"While occasionally dry and over-reliant on computer-generated visualizations of the Earth's core and tectonic plates, this documentary's impressive footage of natural disasters is nothing short of amazing." ‐TV Guide

Before Sunset (2004)

"This sweet film is a genuine treat, even if there's little plot, no antic mayhem and its 90-minute running time is mostly consumed by nonstop, sometimes pretentious dialogue as Celine and Jesse meander together through pretty Paris neighborhoods." ‐TV Guide

The Notebook (2004)

"Cassavetes' film is unusually well-acted and lovely to look at, but his wholehearted embrace of saccharine melodrama and tendency to let scenes ramble on long after their point has been expressed makes for some slow going." ‐TV Guide

Two Brothers (2004)

Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story (2004)

"Stiller doesn't know when to stop; his thoroughly repellent character, whose relationship with pizza makes American Pie's pastry lover seem wholesome, verges on the unwatchable." ‐TV Guide

Garfield - The Movie (2004)

"The CGI is well-done, but Garfield's presence among the otherwise live cast is a constant distraction." ‐TV Guide

Raising Helen (2004)

"The adorable Hudson's onscreen transformation from party girl to supermom seems forced, and Marshall's efforts to pass her off as the next Julia Roberts-style every girl are irritating." ‐TV Guide

Stateside (2004)

Mean Girls (2004)

Laws of Attraction (2004)

"Actors of Julianne Moore and Pierce Brosnan's caliber should not be subjected to playing bland and distasteful characters in mediocre romantic comedies, especially when they actually share some onscreen chemistry." ‐TV Guide

13 Going on 30 (2004)

"This sprightly coming-of-age-too-soon comedy rises above its derivative concept by virtue of a well-cast ensemble and Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa's quick-witted screenplay." ‐TV Guide
