No Score Yet Book of Pooh: Stories from the Heart (2001) Creator and director Mitchell Kriegman, the inspiration behind the award-winning Bear in the Big Blue House, doesn't stray far from the original sentiments that have made Pooh and the gang such beloved characters.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Passion and Prejudice (2001) Passion and Prejudice is a confounding blend of soap opera that begins as a lusty version of Pygmalion and degenerates into a poor man's Fatal Attraction.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Take a Girl Like You (2000) Screenwriter Andrew Davies, a Masterpiece Theatre veteran, takes this supposed anger and turns it into a mostly good-natured story.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Anne Frank (2001) Director Robert Dornhelm carefully paces the story to convey the heartbreak as the layers of Anne's former life are stripped away by oppression. ‐ Variety

No Score Yet Like Mother, Like Son: The Strange Story of Sante and Kenny Kimes (2001) Arthur Allan Seidelman provides an unremarkable account of a story that at best should have been played out as a small-screen version of The Grifters or at least a campy Sunday night diversion. The telepic doesn't come close to either option.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Snap Decision (2001) Actually, this Lifetime original represents a new breed of chick flick: it's smart, it's relevant and it plays to both maternal and feminist sensibilities.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Jett Jackson: The Movie (2001) Director Shawn Levy does a nice job of providing the action with a minimum amount of aggression, an approach most impressively executed in an imaginative, meticulously choreographed playground fight sequence.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Beer Money (2001) Writer Rich Wilkes' script aims for bad taste and hits the target somewhere below straight-to-video and just above unwatchable. ‐ Variety

No Score Yet Gormenghast (2000) Considering this is the first adaptation of Peake's work, and given the magnitude of the production, it will most likely remain the definitive version.‐ Variety

No Score Yet A Flea Market Documentary (2001) A good mix of atmosphere, nostalgia and whimsy, the program is entertaining, though not especially educational. ‐ Variety

90% Scott Turow's Innocent (2011) The Turow adaptation offers a tantalizing plot, picking up 20 years after the whodunit shocker ending of Presumed Innocent, as the recriminations of past events have caught up with everyone involved. ‐ Variety

No Score Yet Attila (2001) The film would serve as an entertaining educational tool if it weren't for excessive blood and a generous amount of exposed skin.‐ Variety

100% Conspiracy (2001) Conspiracy stands on its own as a fly-on-the-wall glimpse of a disturbing piece of history.‐ Variety
