Bratz: The Movie (2007)

"How do our flighty young heroines fight back? By shopping, of course. There is no problem, it seems, a new tube top and mini-skirt can't fix." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Zoom (2006)

"Call this one Galaxy Quest -- another movie in which Tim Allen plays an arrogant jerk who learns lessons about teamwork and friendship -- without the humor, charm, or wit." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Copying Beethoven, (Klang der Stille) (2006)

"Stuck between Kruger's blankness and Harris's overemoting, the film never finds a balance." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Material Girls (2006)

"An insipid mess not worthy of the tweens who flock to such flicks." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Daddy Day Camp (2007)

"It all comes down to the "Olympiad," a battle of idiotic proportions between the two camps, and if you can't guess what happens next, this just may be the movie for you." ‐ Boston Phoenix

The Holiday (2006)

"A reminder to all producers: alluding to iconic romantic comedies in a bid for legitimacy can be a dangerous game, even when you have appealing stars." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Good Luck Chuck (2007)

"The only plausible scenario in this movie is the idea that a woman would be so annoyed by Dane Cook, she'd be willing to put a curse on him." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Enchanted (2007)

"It rides on the charm of its actors, particularly Amy Adams as the hapless, homicidally upbeat princess and James Marsden as her would-be prince charming." ‐ Boston Phoenix

"Only the youngest will find this mess amusing." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Serenity (2005)

"The entire cast from the series appears in the film, and at least a few seem poised for breakout status, especially Nathan Fillion." ‐ Boston Phoenix

"The most fascinating thing about this movie is why they thought anyone would want to see it." ‐ Boston Phoenix

In Good Company (2004)

"Although he won his spurs with American Pie, Weitz's style here is more like a soufflé: light, classy, short on substance." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Surviving Christmas (2004)

"Survive this movie and Christmas will be a breeze." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Shall We Dance (2004)

"Shall We Dance? gives us characters whose lives are transformed by the beauty and joy of dancing without ever showing us how." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 19, 2004

The Cookout (2004)

"Director Lance Rivera raises some legitimate questions about moving up versus selling out and the commodification of professional athletes, but he couldn't care less about answering them." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Sep 11, 2004

The Notebook (2004)

"This film tries to evoke the 1940s but never quite finds the right tone, coming off instead like a big costume party." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Jul 3, 2004

Garfield - The Movie (2004)

"It's not much of a story, and director Peter Hewitt seems content to flesh it out with bland staging and characterizations." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Jun 12, 2004

The Triplets of Belleville (2003)

"Virtually dialogue free, Les triplettes is full of funny and bizarre images, often in the same frame." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Jan 27, 2004

The Barbarian Invasions (Les Invasions barbares) (2003)

"Touching on the themes that affect us all in the twilight of one man's life, Arcand has created a moving portrait of the world we live in and his struggle against it." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Peter Pan (2003)

"Pirates, mermaids, and Indians might seem like kid stuff, but Hogan makes his characters real people." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Dec 27, 2003

Brother Bear (2003)

"Disney's latest animated film is, if not exactly a return to form, a return to the spirit of The Lion King." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Nov 1, 2003

My Boss's Daughter (2003)

"It could have been worse, but not much. Long-delayed and much feared, My Boss's Daughter is at times painfully unfunny." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Sep 13, 2003

Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

"Their final showdown will probably please fans, but everyone else will be wondering whether those 10 years couldn't have been more profitably spent." ‐ Boston Phoenix
Posted Sep 13, 2003

The Good Girl (2002)

"The uniformly terrific, but that can't save The Good Girl from sinking into a funk." ‐ Boston Phoenix

Stuart Little 2 (2002)

"The film looks great, full of bright, primary colors that complement the slightly unreal world they depict." ‐ Boston Phoenix
