The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)

"The characters are over 30 so the humour and situations are far less juvenile than in abominations like Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo or any number of Will Ferrell slapstick comedies." ‐Jam! Movies

Supercross (2005)

"As impressive as the actual race footage is the plot and characters are so underdeveloped that director Steve Boyum is unable to create very much tension." ‐Jam! Movies

Monster-in-Law (2005)

"Granted, Monster-in-Law is meant to be a laugh-fest, but it stoops very low and is too unkind to its actors in its pursuit of laughs." ‐Jam! Movies

Jiminy Glick in Lalawood (2005)

Crash (2004)

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)

xXx: State of the Union (2005)

Sin City (2005)

Robots (2005)

Hide and Seek (2005)

"It's a genuine scare-fest that will have you squirming in your seat and even screaming aloud. Hide and Seek is the best little psychological thriller in a long while." ‐Jam! Movies

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004)

"There is a charming 90-minute comedy somewhere in Life Aquatic, but the extra 30 or so minutes in this version point out just how self-indulgent Anderson is becoming." ‐Jam! Movies

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004)

Blade: Trinity (2004)
