1/5 45% Web Therapy: Season 1 (TV, 2011) " It's not just that Kudrow has failed to find a vehicle for her comedic talents since Friends; it's that the two-dimensional, often insufferable characters she's created are largely to blame for the failure of those projects in the first place. " — Slant Magazine

2/4 86% I.O.U.S.A. (2008) " It's too bad Creadon breezes through potential solutions to the problem and ends his film with what basically amounts to a Rock the Vote ad." — Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 20, 2008

3/4 74% Kurt Cobain About a Son (2007) " AJ Schnack's Kurt Cobain: About a Son is as gripping and revealing as Gus Van Sant's Last Days was hollow and pointless." — Slant Magazine

2.5/4 26% Along Came Polly (2004) " Not since that famous tussle with Cameron Diaz's dog in There's Something About Mary has Stiller connected so agreeably with a costar." — Slant Magazine
Posted Jan 12, 2004
2/4 40% Anything Else (2003) " Anything Else simply dresses its young stars up like over-the-hill geeks and stuffs their mouths with ten-dollar words." — Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 15, 2003
3/4 81% Thirteen (2003) " And just as it did with Kids, the media will (and already has) trumpet warnings from the mountaintops that the film should be taken as a wake-up call to parents." — Slant Magazine

Posted Apr 14, 2002
26% The Sweetest Thing (2002) " Christina and Courtney's antics are straight out of "Three's Company," only Chrissy is not as dumb and Janet is a whore." — Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 10, 2002
72% Romeo + Juliet (1996) " Purists may scoff, but the film is faithful to the Bard and its makers are thoroughly cognizant of the famous story's layers." — Slant Magazine
Posted Mar 29, 2002
84% Safe (1995) " Todd Haynes' enviro-disease masterpiece Safe might just be the most terrifying film of the last decade." — Slant Magazine
