Because I Said So (2007)

"Diane Keaton's dizzy iconoclast shtick was kind of cute, rather endearing, and even a little feminist 30 years ago. Now it's just nails-on-a-chalkboard obnoxious." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Dixie Chicks - Shut Up and Sing (2006)

"The film as a whole is less a political document than it is a sensitively detailed backstage portrait of a unique musical phenomenon." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Cocaine Cowboys (2006)

"Aiming for encyclopedic coverage of the drug epidemic and its effect on the city, Corben packs much too much into one movie." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Sleeping Dogs Lie (2006)

"The story of a woman who confides in her fiancĂ© that she once gave her dog a blow job, Dogs had the potential to be a raunchfest, but Goldthwait's take is much more affecting." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Jesus Camp (2006)

"Evangelism's views on science and politics are so polarizing that almost any viewer, whether Orthodox, agnostic, or atheist, is bound to have an elemental reaction from the first shot of six-year-olds weeping in religious ecstasy." ‐ Premiere Magazine

The Ground Truth (2006)

"This film, a raw howl of outrage and pain, is proudly one-sided, allowing a generation of wounded men and women to scream their betrayal." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Monster House (2006)

"Monster House is crammed to the rafters with the kind of satisfying horror-lite scares that make it a perfect midsummer diversion." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Superman Returns (2006)

"This Superman is like nothing you've ever seen before, but it tickles something primitive and comforting at the back of the mind. Gorgeously detailed and meticulously realized, it's a homecoming of a movie." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Civic Duty (2006)

Akeelah and the Bee (2006)

"A lovely, touching story, Akeelah might be too pretty to be believable, but it's transporting nonetheless." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

"Even though Goblet of Fire clocks in at a robust 157 minutes, Newell handles the massive story with seeming ease, keeping the pace taut and intensifying the pervasive menace that lurked more subtly in the previous films." ‐ Premiere Magazine

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005)

"Sisterhood inhabits a tricky slot -- the subject matter is a little mature for tween audiences, and too glossed over for adults -- but succeeds, due entirely to charismatic Tamblyn and devastating Ferrera." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004)

"[Zellweger's] never allowed to be quite as human, quite as pained. She's only allowed to be ridiculous." ‐ Premiere Magazine

A Home at the End of the World (2004)

"Mayer, a theater director making his film debut, has a sure hand with the finely calibrated emotions of his ensemble, and the intricately knotted chain of love, dependence, and dissatisfaction that twines them together." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

"An adaptation worthy of Rowling's marvelous creation-a chapter that spins the story to ever more thrillingly dark, treacherous heights." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Troy (2004)

"Recalls an age when Hollywood not only gambled on but flourished with grandiose epics and casts of thousands, and brings megawatt star power to what is, at root, a brilliantly told story." ‐ Premiere Magazine

New York Minute (2004)

"Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have many millions of dollars... But in New York Minute, despite a lavish budget and one of the most expensive movie sets in the world -- the island of Manhattan -- they can't buy love, talent, or a decent script." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Hellboy (2004)

"Thanks to the singular vision of director Guillermo del Toro and Mike Mignola's gloriously dark source material, Hellboy is a wicked trip into the fantastic." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Hidalgo (2004)

"The visual effects are almost seamlessly integrated and very effective, especially in the claustrophobic brutality of the dust storm sequence. It's brief, but terrifying." ‐ Premiere Magazine

Cheaper by the Dozen (2003)

"A combination of clever writing, top-notch comedic leads, winning performances from the youngest Bakers, and a genuine affection for old-fashioned (read: big and loud) families elevates Cheaper above the dreaded kid-movie dreck." ‐ Premiere Magazine
