Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2002
34% A Rumor of Angels (2000) The actors don't inhabit their roles -- they're trapped by them, forced to change behavior in bizarre unjustified fashion and spout dialog that consists mostly of platitudes.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2002

Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2002

Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2002
67% Ali (2001) Ali does the unthinkable: making its complex and dynamic subject smaller than life.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2001

Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2001

Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2001

Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2001
50% Shallow Hal (2001) Lives up to its title, an inch wide and an inch deep.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2001
24% Domestic Disturbance (2001) A small and fuzzy blip in an already very bad film year, as nondescript and uninvolving as its title.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2001
41% K-PAX (2001) K-PAX suggests that perhaps the answers we find or conclusions we reach are less important than the questions we ask.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2001
52% The Last Castle (2001) The Last Castle takes [a] timeworn premise and steers it down a ludicrous and obvious path to a conclusion that will have most audience members rolling their eyes in disbelief rather than cheering.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2001
64% Zoolander (2001) This isn't a film so much as a smirk of a home movie that somehow got green-lighted as a film project and then ran wildly amuck.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2001
90% The Producers (1968) More than thirty years after its initial release, it's still outrageous as ever and one of the funniest films ever made.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2001

Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2001
93% Apocalypse Now Redux (2001) Those who loved the original Apocalypse Now will find more to admire. Those who found the original self-indulgent and pompous may now find it even more so.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2001
53% Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) An interminable oral sex and flatulence joke masquerading as a movie.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2001
55% Osmosis Jones (2001) Don't expect the usual Farrelly broad brush and grade-school animal humor, but instead prepare for acerbic wit and sly asides delivered in rapid fashion.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2001
82% The Deep End (2001) A spare and stylish thriller that intrigues with intelligence rather than cheap shocks.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2001
32% America's Sweethearts (2001) Wide parched vistas of monotony separate scrabbly oases of amusement and the payoff for a gag almost never matches the time devoted to its setup.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2001
51% Kiss of the Dragon (2001) The action as presented is strictly rote and much more bloody than balletic.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2001

Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2001

Read More | Posted May 18, 2001
88% Shrek (2001) The total package is magical to behold, clever and hugely entertaining for all ages.‐
Read More | Posted May 18, 2001

Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2001
96% The Dish (2001) A quietly moving film that delights in small things.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2001
43% Someone Like You (2001) An original take on the quirks of relationships.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2001
9% Say It Isn't So (2001) The jokes are sparsely sown and what happens between them is duller than C-SPAN during a filibuster.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2001
69% A Thousand Clowns (1965) Timeless is an adjective that's tossed around too frequently, but A Thousand Clowns more than qualifies.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2001
19% Monkeybone (2001) A disjointed and frustrating mess.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2001
15% Sweet November (2001) Patently false and manipulative.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2001
68% U-571 (2000) Even a large dose of modern Dolby sound effects and digitized pyrotechnics can't mask a plot and acting that are both decidedly sub-standard.‐
