Beer League (2006)

"The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable." ‐Newsday

Reinas (Queens) (2006)

"[A] frothy, occasionally charming romantic comedy." ‐Newsday

Invincible (2006)

"Unlike most 'feel-good' films in this genre, Invincible isn't blatantly manipulative, and works so well because it is, in fact, understated." ‐Newsday

Material Girls (2006)

"Madonna's anthem was only good-naturedly arrogant, but the SoCal twins, like the film's script, are arrogant, ghastly immature and offensive to any audience that isn't all of the above." ‐Newsday

Lunacy (2006)

"A bad dream leads to constant conscious nightmares in this wacky, surreal creepshow from over-the-edge Czech filmmaker Jan Svankmajer." ‐Newsday

Conversations With Other Women (2006)

"By fade out, the movie has run out of air: the quick, clever dialogue flattens out and it becomes contrived." ‐Newsday

Accepted (2006)

"More disconcerting is the idea put forward that self-indulgence is a substitute for structured education, or, more to the point, that it's a substitute for life." ‐Newsday

Zoom (2006)

"The director of Zoom is Peter Hewitt, who also directed Garfield. Nothing more to say about that." ‐Newsday

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)

"A whole bunch of great racing footage would've ratcheted up Nights a notch or two -- see Cars for inspiration -- but even the track scenes are ... well, pedestrian." ‐Newsday

1/4 85%

The Descent (2006)

"The Descent doesn't need to exist: a script that goes beyond outlandish. Actors who'd flunk out of Make Believe 101. Blind creatures that see things. Did we mention continuity?" ‐Newsday

The Ant Bully (2006)

"Luc's transformation from ant destructor to ant protector illustrates a lesson told many times before, but rarely with such down-to-earth charm." ‐Newsday

2.5/4 18%

Shadowboxer (2005)

"Billed as film noir, but because it lacks any subtlety and accentuates gratuitous violence that is more in-your-face than it is implied, the movie is about as noir-ish as Rocky." ‐Newsday

Monster House (2006)

"When the fat lady finally sings -- the filmmakers turn up the volume and the visuals explode. It's these sensations, and not necessarily the content, that might overwhelm some youngsters." ‐Newsday

The Oh in Ohio (2006)

"Eventually, the oh's becomes 'zzzzzz's.'" ‐Newsday

Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos (2006)

"Told in a breezy, fast-cut style, and backed by a boisterous soundtrack that ranges from Puccini to James Brown, Lifetime focuses on the players -- on the field and off -- that made the Cosmos such a super, if short-lived, team." ‐Newsday

Strangers with Candy (2005)

"Quickly, no taste leads to bad taste, and dumb leads to dumber." ‐Newsday

The Road To Guantanamo (2006)

"Reality and make-believe get more than mixed: They get muddled." ‐Newsday

Click (2006)

"Walken is so adept and natural as Sandler's guiding light -- and his tormentor -- that he seems to be ad-libbing. It's an artful, endearing performance." ‐Newsday

Lower City (Cidade Baixa) (2006)

"The film is gritty and graphic, with 'artsy' takes where the camera holds on a motionless actor. But art it isn't." ‐Newsday

The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green (2006)

"There's so much ill-conceived fluff floating about the 'elusive true love' themes that by the finish, Ethan Green hasn't as much substance as a good Looney Tunes." ‐Newsday

2.5/4 86%

Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul (2006)

"It's a tasty sonic apertif to an unfamiliar world, and likely to inspire more than a few folks to make a beeline for the world music browser at the music store." ‐Newsday
