48% The First Wives Club (1996) Starting over the top and wildly working its way upwards, The First Wives' Club eschews subtlety at all costs and is dogged by a number of out of place syrupy songs on the soundtrack.‐ Irish Times

59% Deep Blue Sea (1999) The capable cast can do nothing with their cliche-type roles, leaving me, for one, rooting for the sharks - which, though mostly animatronic, are rather more convincing than the movie's human creations.‐ Irish Times
