Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/4 74% Swimming (2000) Building slowly and subtly, the film, sporting a breezy spontaneity and realistically drawn characterizations, develops into a significant character study that is both moving and wise.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jul 26, 2002
3.5/4 89% Almost Famous (2000) The ... probably most important factor behind Almost Famous' genius is the wealth of magical movie moments with which Cameron dots his labor of love.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 90% Show Me Love (1999) Successfully captures the frenzied angst and boredom of youth, as well as the powerful, unbridled emotions of first love.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 68% Charlie's Angels (2000) This Angels clearly rocks.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 22% Coyote Ugly (2000) A homogenized and humdrum cinematic.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 88% American Beauty (1999) Though the film is outrageously entertaining, its relentless struggle to find social relevance becomes so heavy-handed that it leaves you feeling sucker-punched.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 57% Never Been Kissed (1999) This is a film that doesn't worry about being bad, doesn't even try for passable. Why bother?‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 74% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) Kubrick fans would do wisely to sit back, take a deep breath, and just appreciate Eyes Wide Shut for what the film is -- a departed master's final gift. We will never see the likes of it again.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1.5/4 24% Loser (2000) The flick is hollow.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1/4 13% Whipped (1999) A 90-minute blab session between a bunch of horny dudes that could easily have been called In the Company of Idiots.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 84% Meet the Parents (2000) The real comic bite comes from the combustible energy between the two lead actors.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 26% Julien Donkey-Boy (1999) Donkey-Boy exists in an uneasy space between documentary, improvisation, and fictional narrative, and often makes one suspect that Korine may be exploiting his oddball cast.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 26% Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000) It's depressing that films like The Klumps pass for seasoned comedy in the beginning of the 21st century.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 83% The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) A quietly disturbing, visually dazzling anomaly.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 70% Dick (1999) The thing Dick resembles most is a wildly uneven Saturday Night Live skit.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 31% 28 Days (2000) Betty Thomas' amiable little rehab romantic dramedy 28 Days may aspire to be more, but it's clearly another member of this disingenuous movie family.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
.5/4 20% Autumn in New York (2000) I couldn't help rooting for Charlotte's tumor.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 28% Gossip (1999) Gossip is truly brainless, over-the-top Hollywood fun.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 20% The Crew (2000) In a summer filled with crappy gross-out comedies, The Crew is a pleasant and amusing alternative.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 30% Big Momma's House (2000) An infectious, good-hearted bag of fun.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 86% The Original Kings of Comedy (2000) Little of the material feels distinctive, fresh, or insightful -- let alone edgy.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 53% Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) The problems with Grinch stem from the lackluster script.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 42% What Planet Are You From? (2000) This loony battle of the sexes flick offers a generous supply of laughs for fans of broad humor and actor/screenwriter Garry Shandling.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 53% Scary Movie (2000) When it comes to pushing the envelope in comedy, the Farrelly brothers have nothing on those badass Wayans.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1.5/4 11% Boys and Girls (2000) Boys and Girls is a nondescript nothing of a film.‐ Reel.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
