C 67% The Company Men (2011) eteran TV producer John Wells filters the economic disaster through the eyes of the laid-off, but not even Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones can save this uneven movie.‐ E! Online

B- 24% The Dilemma (2011) Those expecting a trademark Vince Vaughn Wedding Crashers-style laughfest will be disappointed-and those who hate Vince Vaughn Wedding Crashers-style laughfests will be surprisingly impressed.‐ E! Online

B- 10% Little Fockers (2010) The personalities are exuberant, the situations humorous, the slapstick worth a chuckle or two.‐ E! Online

B 32% For Colored Girls (2010) A veritable who's-who of A-list African-American actresses (Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg) populates For Colored Girls, and their performances keep this highly theatrical script from suffocating the big screen.‐ E! Online

C+ 34% Lottery Ticket (2010) It doesn't work all the time, but it's definitely a worthy attempt.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2010
C 36% Eat Pray Love (2010) Most of what made the book connect with so many is entirely missing here.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2010
A- 78% The Other Guys (2010) Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg milk dry their default movie personas, but it's all part of the joke -- and what a great joke it is.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2010
B- 27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) A well-crafted tearjerker with a grown-up performance from Zac Efron. If you don't mind risking dehydration, it's the movie for you.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2010
B+ 70% Ramona and Beezus (2010) Relative unknown Joey King, as Ramona, is on the right side of precocious, using her adorableness in carefully measured doses. She easily carries the movie.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2010
A 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) Another sentimental journey with some old friends, new scene-stealers and a powerful, heartfelt mix of sugar and spice.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2010
C 65% The Karate Kid (2010) Like a kung-fu master poised on one leg, a movie must have balance -- between action and emotion, heart and head, fast and slow. This rebooted Kid wobbles, flails, and ultimately stumbles in a futile attempt to top the original.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2010
C- 9% Marmaduke (2010) A lame, worn-out story wrapped in a pelt of fluffy dog fur.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2010
C+ 15% Sex and the City 2 (2010) Sex and the City 2 has very little sex, and not a lot of city. Bad move.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 27, 2010
C+ 41% Letters to Juliet (2010) It's almost like the movie is afraid of what it should be -- a young, frisky love story that should be exuberant and carefree, even if it means risking making a fool of itself. What's love, after all, if it doesn't do exactly that?‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 13, 2010
B- 41% Death at a Funeral (2010) It's no comedy masterpiece, but this story of a funeral where everything goes wrong has a brash, outlandish tone grounded by an outstanding cast.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2010
D+ 13% The Bounty Hunter (2010) Despite several attempts at jokes and the stars' tremendous efforts to pull funny faces, the script fails miserably to entertain; most of the dialogue is tiresome bickering between our two leads.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2010
B 75% Greenberg (2010) The clashes between Roger and his old friends and bandmates shine a light on the fact that you either have to accept your lost dreams, or fight for them all over again, no matter how much your knees ache or your joints creak.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2010
D+ 17% When in Rome (2010) The forced misunderstandings, clumsy attempts at comedy, and late-third-act turnarounds are so absolutely rote and graceless that not even the charm of the poor actors consigned to this eye-roller can lift the movie out of its grave.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2010
B+ 76% Invictus (2009) Absorbing, often electric with the energy of the playing field, Invictus is packed with feel-good "teachable moments" without the sugary aftertaste.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2009
A 84% The Princess and the Frog (2009) Funny, inspiring and gorgeously rendered, The Princess and the Frog is an instant classic.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Nov 25, 2009
C 21% Planet 51 (2009) Starring bright animation and the voices of Justin Long and Dawyne Johnson, Planet 51 follows a hilarious concept with weak execution and way too many references to better films.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2009
B+ 61% Pirate Radio (The Boat That Rocked) (2009) Practical jokes, general buffoonery and sexual misadventures abound, and a sentimental "who's your daddy" subplot involving Carl barely registers amidst the guffaws. War? Recession? Unemployment? Forget all that in this buoyant flick.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2009
A 91% Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009) Precious is an exhausting but worthwhile ride, a movie that shines a light on the dark side of humanity and the opportunity to rise above it.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2009
C- 10% Bride Wars (2009) Bride Wars could have been a clever, incisive satire of the bloated and maddening wedding industry; unfortunately it takes an old-fashioned stance far out of place in this modern world.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2009
C 67% Revolutionary Road (2008) We understand -- immediately, like in the second or third scene, thank you -- that they are tragically suppressed; why should we care?‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2008
B 25% Bedtime Stories (2008) Leading man Sandler has done street-smart goofball a million times over, but the guy also knows how to play emotion.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2008
C- 27% Seven Pounds (2008) No comic relief, no bursts of spontaneity -- everything seems calculated and overthought, muddling the message.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2008
C+ 25% Four Christmases (2008) The movie tries to be a feel-good holiday movie, but it's too vulgar to take the whole family to and too silly to charm sophisticates.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Nov 25, 2008
B 64% Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) Unlike most sequels, Madagascar 2 is actually funnier -- and better -- than the original.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2008
B 35% Pride and Glory (2008) A gritty aesthetic and clearheaded storytelling elevate this conventional plot into an engrossing drama.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2008
A 74% Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008) Handheld camerawork, long close-ups and two leads who act with fearless transparency lend a welcome intimacy to this sweet adventure.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2008
C+ 61% The Duchess (2008) Sadly, we see more of [Knightley's] boudoir than her brain, the main downfall of this no-expense-spared lavish period piece.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2008
C- 38% Swing Vote (2008) Like so many presidential candidates, Swing Vote falls victim to unfulfilled promises, wasted opportunities and smug self-satisfaction.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2008
B 55% Step Brothers (2008) Somewhere between unashamed vulgarity and juvenile sweetness lies this surprisingly touching tale about two man-children.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2008
C 54% Mamma Mia! (2008) Mamma Mia! lacks even one big fantastic set piece; visually, each musical number is chopped up into tiny little bits.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2008
B 27% What Happens in Vegas (2008) What Happens In Vegas is about as silly and pleasant as it needs to be, no more, no less.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 8, 2008
C+ 14% Made of Honor (2008) The tension between the leads is almost lost in the white noise of vindictive bridesmaids, fussy future in-laws and one too many dirty sex jokes, leading right up to the oh-so-predictable grand finale.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 1, 2008
b- 74% Son of Rambow (2007) Full of quirk, slapstick and dry British humor, Son of Rambow is a delight, but too often forgets to stay true to its heart.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 1, 2008
A- 64% Baby Mama (2008) It's a perfectly bred combination of razor-sharp satire and female buddy comedy.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2008
B+ 85% Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) Congrats, Jason Segel, the latest lucky graduate of the Judd Apatow School of Movie Stardom.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2008
B+ 88% Young@Heart (2007) Music can move you, no matter what style, no matter who performs. That's the most poignant lesson of Young@Heart.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2008
C+ 51% Nim's Island (2008) This supposed adventure movie could use a little more wind in its sails.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2008
B 64% Stop-Loss (2008) About as unpopular as the war in Iraq are movies about the war in Iraq, but no matter: Director Kimberly Peirce emerges victorious with a brave, probing look at the inner lives of soldiers.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2008
C 73% Under the Same Moon (2008) Whatever you feel about illegal immigration, those affected certainly deserve to have their stories heard, and they definitely deserve less mawkish and by-the-book stories than this.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2008
c- 22% Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins (2008) Nothing, not even the voice of Darth Vadar himself, can save this family comedy from a too-silly script.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2008
A- 66% How She Move (2008) Along with the dancing, the earnest performances and handheld cinematography imbue the film with the feeling of a carefully planned documentary.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2008
C 13% First Sunday (2008) If there's a God, First Sunday will be the last of its kind for Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan, who deserve better than this wannabe screwball comedy about small-time crooks knocking over a church.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2008
B+ 79% The Great Debaters (2007) Instead of exploiting this cruel reality, Washington's camera records both scenes of joy and scenes of tragedy with equal composure, never milking for effect.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2008
B 35% National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) When you can tell the cast is having fun, it's kind of hard not to yourself.‐ E! Online
