The Invention of Lying (2009)

"The tone remains the same throughout, though, good spirited and high minded without pretensions. It remains funny -- but forsakes its potential to be a truly original comedy start-to-finish." ‐ E! Online

Bruno (2009)

"Sacha Baron Cohen uses his guerilla tactics to 'expose' the vanity and vacuity of Hollywood and the American South. His high-wire humor can be very funny, but here the groans often drown out the giggles." ‐ E! Online

Public Enemies (2009)

"Public Enemies grinds to nothing more than a watered-down escape caper, a chase without context or meaning." ‐ E! Online

Away We Go (2009)

"Krasinki is able to anchor the movie with a limber, melancholy performance -- and doesn't draw too heavily from his overflowing reservoir of nice-guy charm." ‐ E! Online

Land of the Lost (2009)

"Will Ferrell justifies his outsized fame in this surprisingly bizarre and dirty adaptation of the campy '70s TV time-travel classic." ‐ E! Online

The Hangover (2009)

"It has a couple of stand-out characters in Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, and enough T-shirt-worthy catchphrases to keep the chuckles coming." ‐ E! Online

Angels & Demons (2009)

"This diligent yet dull religious caper only adds to the long list of Tom Hanks throwaway features, movies best enjoyed on airplanes." ‐ E! Online

The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009)

"Conor has the flamboyant confidence of a matador, but McConaughey draws out the right amount of sleaze and tenderness to transform Conor from a bullfighter to a rodeo clown." ‐ E! Online

Obsessed (2009)

"The immaculate BeyoncĂ© Knowles and devastatingly handsome Idris Elba attack their silly parts with a ferocity the gives this dumpy little movie the spark it needs to be compelling." ‐ E! Online

17 Again (2009)

"Afraid that pubescent shrieking and swooning will drown out critical plot points of this zany body-swap flick? No worries! 17 Again is essentially a flipbook of Zac Efron pictures with some sound thrown over it." ‐ E! Online

Observe and Report (2009)

"Unsure if it's supposed to make you love or loathe all the ugly behavior and cheap gags, Observe and Report will make you squirm for all the wrong reasons." ‐ E! Online

I Love You, Man (2009)

"This comedy of manners, about the anxieties of modern male friendship, gets the balance of smarts and raunch exactly right. Plus, costars Paul Rudd and Jason Segel could not be more likeable, funny and on their game." ‐ E! Online

Sunshine Cleaning (2009)

"The tenderhearted performances -- from Amy Adams and Emily Blunt -- and glowing characters in Sunshine Cleaning never get a chance to burst through a foggy plot about sisters scrubbing up after grisly crime scenes." ‐ E! Online

Madea Goes to Jail (2009)

"The movie's titular matron (Perry in drag) is actually a diversion from the film's cornball melodrama, and will likely inspire jeers, instead of applause, even from his most dedicated fans." ‐ E! Online

Eleven Minutes (2008)

Gone Baby Gone (2007)

"Pulp meets poetry on the Boston rooftops in Ben Affleck's directorial debut. This absorbing and complex neighborhood-noir, about a private eye on the trail of a missing girl, is easily one of the best movies of the year." ‐ E! Online

The Heartbreak Kid (2007)

"It's heartbreaking enough to witness a shallow remake of a treasured classic, but it's equally depressing to watch comedy masters Ben Stiller and the Farrelly brothers go so completely off their game." ‐ E! Online

Illegal Tender (2007)

A Mighty Heart (2007)
