24% The Odd Couple II (1998) Unfortunately--no offense, now--this is mainly a case of the Old Couple, given the mediocre direction of Howard Deutch and, mostly, the surprisingly bland script by Neil Simon. - Film Journal International EDIT

No Score Yet Nick and Jane (1996) Not much of the humor works at all, and there aren't many sparks generated by the putative, last-reel lovers Wheeler-Nicholson and McCaffrey. - Film Journal International EDIT

25% Little Boy Blue (1998) Boston has written some excellent characters, and under Antonio Tibaldi's astute direction, the actors are uniformly superlative, right down to the walk-ons. - Film Journal International EDIT

86% Wild Man Blues (1998) Whatever one thinks about Woody Allen, you'll probably find it in here, except why Americans don't much turn out to see his movies. - Film Journal International EDIT

26% U.S. Marshals (1997) It suffers, too, from what plagues the big, brawny action engines: The mechanics of the generic thrills and spills override the logic of the narrative. - Film Journal International EDIT

41% Mr. Nice Guy (Yat goh hiu yan) (1997) Even in an 'off' picture like Mr. Nice Guy, it is impossible not to like [Chan]; he's so open and good-natured and takes pride in what he does. - Film Journal International EDIT

50% Ayn Rand: A Sense of Life (1998) Gains little visually from big-screen exposure. - Film Journal International EDIT

9% Species II (1998) Species II may be notable only in that it is an extreme, sadly robust example of the troubling trend of modern horror films to give sex a bad name. - Film Journal International EDIT

36% I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) A scream but no Scream, I Know is a clean, efficient horror picture out at the perfect box-office time. - Film Journal International EDIT

41% Bean (1997) Not only do we not care about Bean, we want him to just go away and not bother us anymore. - Film Journal International EDIT

23% Patch Adams (1998) Director Tom Shadyac and screenwriter Steve Oedekerk have sleekly outfitted a sudsy feel-good formula into an entertaining holiday comic tear-gusher. - Film Journal International EDIT

43% Dr. Dolittle (1998) The writers have sausaged the story (really just a situation) into simple and simplistic sitcom formula, which delivers some laughs. - Film Journal International EDIT

54% What Dreams May Come (1998) The problem here is pretty much everything. - Film Journal International EDIT

66% Funny Games (1998) Remarkably well-directed and played, the crisp images perfectly framed by cinematographer Jürgen Jürges for maximum effect. - Film Journal International EDIT

37% Great Expectations (1998) If this movie were a sandwich, it'd be ham on white bread. - Film Journal International EDIT
