3/5 57% From Hell (2001) Great atmosphere, thin mystery. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT

52% The Last Castle (2001) Polished prison-flick popcorn. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2001
1/5 10% Megiddo: The Omega Code 2 (2001) Once the action starts to kick in, Megiddo morphs, minute by minute and scene by scene, into a Mystery Science Theater smorgasbord. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT

3/5 43% Extreme Days (2001) Silly but worth the ride. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT

29% Max Keeble's Big Move (2001) If there's no way to avoid seeing Keeble's Big Move, take along a book, ideally a hefty one. With the proper arm speed and angle of release, you can probably nail the projectionist. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT

49% Hearts in Atlantis (2001) Too formulaic and discursive to engage our emotions. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2001
39% Hardball (2001) Strikes out looking. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2001
2/5 43% Two Can Play That Game (2001) A feature-length movie demands a story, and this one barely has the substance of an anecdote. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2001
11% The Musketeer (2001) In its fast-food way, this is an acceptable addition to the all-for-one canon. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2001
1/5 21% John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars (2001) Someday we're all going to look back on this one and l-a-a-a-augh. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2001
8% Summer Catch (2001) ...one more strikeout in a movie that's loaded with them. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2001
45% The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001) A marvelously witty period comedy, consisting in equal measures of lighthearted spoofery and fond homage. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2001
43% Rat Race (2001) Zucker and Breckman get more than enough humor out of sharp set pieces and smartly scripted character clashes to sprint all the way to the finish line. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2001
52% American Pie 2 (2001) What was passably cute the first time seems much more puerile and shrill here. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2001
12% Original Sin (2001) The script rambles between airy pomposities ... and atrocious ribaldries. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2001
50% Jurassic Park III (2001) A sturdy, watchable, Saturday-afternoon-serial throwback that teems with cool creatures. But it's too prefab to really deliver on the promise of 'intense sci-fi terror' written into the movie's MPAA rating description. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2001
73% The Score (2001) Like a diet cola, The Score has fizz, but very little savor and no calories to speak of. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2001
45% Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) Has the capacity to inspire awe, but it's still a rough draft. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2001
51% Kiss of the Dragon (2001) You, the average taxpaying citizen, need to see this movie like Bill Gates needs to win the lottery. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2001
15% Scary Movie 2 (2001) The gags are fresh (so to speak), but the tone and execution are oh-so-exactly the same -- as McSequels go, this one's a pièce de résistance of satisfied expectations. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2001
63% Crazy/Beautiful (2001) A teenage movie that trusts its audience -- it sounds crazy, but it's actually quite beautiful. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2001
42% Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001) For an enterprise so soullessly commercial on its face, Murphy's second outing as the M.D. who talks to the animals is surprisingly engaging. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2001
49% Atlantis - The Lost Empire (2001) It has a sense of wonder. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2001
26% Swordfish (2001) The story is mostly about what happens to various objects (plate glass windows, SUVs, senators) when they are riddled with bullets or detonated by explosives. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2001
30% The Animal (2001) Frequently it becomes boring. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2001
25% Pearl Harbor (2001) After the first few minutes, it's just fireworks and bodies in motion. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted May 24, 2001
88% Shrek (2001) Shrek's self-reflexive silliness is in nearly perfect counterpoint to its giddy spirit of adventure, friendship, and romance. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted May 17, 2001
59% The Low Down (2001) Has an aura of honest observation that engages even when almost nothing is happening on-screen. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted May 3, 2001
33% One Night at McCool's (2001) Proceeds from a premise that's as simplistic as a seventh-grade gym class joke. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2001
96% With a Friend like Harry... (2001) Rises instantly above its genre merely by taking the time to develop its characters and scenario. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2001
71% Brigham City (2001) Moviegoers of any (or no) religious persuasion can share in the simple satisfaction of [Dutcher's] tense, well-spun murder mystery. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2001
11% Freddy Got Fingered (2001) Too often, scenes crop up that have nothing to do with anything beyond Green's consuming need to be as outrageous as he can be. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2001
11% Joe Dirt (2001) To see it is to sit through scene after scene like the one in which a hulking oil rigger spattered with crude takes a leak on some smoldering ashes for no reason at all. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2001
28% Kingdom Come (2001) It's all too easy to see through the movie to its plot gears, and all too evident where the grinding of those gears is taking us. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2001
31% Along Came a Spider (2001) On some level, nearly every thriller asks viewers to suspend their disbelief. Along Came a Spider expects you to kick yours in the nuts, break both its legs, and not make hospital visits. You can't even send flowers. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2001
53% Heartbreakers (2001) Fatally bogged down by a ridiculous caring parent scenario. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2001
32% Exit Wounds (2001) In fairness, the movie is more or less competent for being what it is. Of course, I could say the same of most brick walls -- but I'd hardly recommend that you pay eight bucks to sit in front of one for two hours. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2001
14% Company Man (2001) The rapid-fire gags are relentlessly cute and announce themselves with all the subtlety of a pounding headache. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2001
61% When Brendan Met Trudy (2001) Doyle and director Kieron J. Walsh have such a fine old time with all this winky-wink business that they seem to only sporadically recall the plight of star-crossed lovers Brendan ... and Trudy. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2001
82/100 55% The Mexican (2001) J.H. Wyman's clever script takes chances and includes some truly satisfying payoffs. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2001
4/100 9% Valentine (2001) Even by the thoroughly undemanding standards of its burned-out genre, Valentine is vacuous, tedious, and perfunctory. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2001
66/100 16% Left Behind: The Movie (2001) Solid, unexceptional mix of thrills and human drama. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2001
51/100 10% Head over Heels (2001) The screwball comedy in general misses as often as it hits. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2001
77/100 28% Sugar & Spice (2001) A surprising amount of the humor stems from well-drawn caricatures and cleverly seeded payoffs. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2001
78/100 57% The Gift (2000) An acceptably suspenseful, watchable Southern Gothic whodunit. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2001
71/100 53% Save the Last Dance (2001) Stiles and Thomas are engaging young performers. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2001
17% Dracula 2000 (2000) Even true believers will have a hard time sinking their fangs into this thoroughly perfunctory affair. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2000
53% The Family Man (2000) A warm, glossy holiday fable that hits some surprisingly sweet notes. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2000
87/100 74% Finding Forrester (2000) Like its protagonist, Finding Forrester got game. - Mr. Showbiz EDIT
