7/10 77% Seabiscuit (2003) It's a fine tale, but if they had just let Seabiscuit run unchecked, it could have been a great one.‐ Citysearch

3/10 28% How to Deal (2003) Any melodrama that introduces both teen pregnancy and a 17-year-old's funeral within the first act would seem to have nowhere to go but up, yet this joyless exercise just wallows in empty navel-gazing.‐ Citysearch

8/10 73% Together (He ni zai yi qi) (2003) This tale of art vs. commerce is easily the most embraceable -- yet heartwrenching -- of the films made by the Oscar-nominated director of Farewell, My Concubine.‐ Citysearch

6/10 68% Laurel Canyon (2003) The chemistry between McDormand, Ian and goody-two-shoes Alex is soggy rather than sexy.‐ Citysearch

6/10 19% The Life of David Gale (2003) As the mystery unravels, the movie builds to such a ludicrous crescendo, you'll wish Keyser Soze did it.‐ Citysearch

8/10 40% Maid in Manhattan (2002) Natasha Richardson has a droll turn as a blowsy socialite competing for Fiennes' attention, but Fiennes himself is inexplicably frosty. Yet it hardly matters -- there's already enough pixie dust to make this glass-slipper fantasy fly.‐ Citysearch

5/10 12% Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002) Potty-mouthed enough for PG-13, yet not as hilariously raunchy as South Park, this strangely schizo cartoon seems suited neither to kids or adults.‐ Citysearch

7/10 92% Talk to Her (2002) Wise and darkly witty, Talk to Her is often humorous, but not always comforting.‐ Citysearch

8/10 55% The Santa Clause 2 (2002) Any holiday movie that pokes fun at Charlie Sheen rebounding to the naughty list ('I thought he cleaned up his act!' Allen exclaims) deserves a little yuletide cheer.‐ Citysearch

7/10 41% The Four Feathers (2002) Although the story dates back to A.E.W. Mason's 1865 novel, Kapur does a stellar job of adapting it to reflect current events.‐ Citysearch
