The Wedding Date (2005)

"Glides along with the unself-conscious assurance of a deodorant commercial, confident that the presence of attractive actors in gowns and tuxes will sanction any idiocy." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Beyond the Sea (2004)

"Beyond the Sea is a mishmash that's interesting only as a document of Spacey's obsessions." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Finding Neverland (2004)

"[Finding Neverland] turns Barrie's life into an exercise in tepid sentimentality that will bore children and move only the more lachrymose of their minders." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Surviving Christmas (2004)

"With the release of this wretched film, star Ben Affleck takes one more ragged step in what seems his death march from leading man to celebrity game show guest." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Shall We Dance (2004)

"[Gere's] need to telegraph sappy good-heartedness with every shot drains away all trace of eroticism." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The Forgotten (2004)

"Screenwriter Gerald Di Pegoto...[is] like a child caught in a fib, trying to wriggle out of his predicament by cooking up ever more extravagant fantasies." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The Butterfly Effect (2004)

"Cool theories...don't necessarily guarantee good stories...[even if Ashton Kutcher] is repeatedly punk'd by the space-time continuum." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The Young Black Stallion (2003)

"If you are able to read this review, you are probably too old to get much pleasure out of Young Black Stallion." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Hellboy (2004)

"Hellboy sometimes pumps new life into the shopworn conventions on which it is based, but never entirely manages to transcend its pulpy origins." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The Company (2003)

"[Altman] fondly documents the ins and outs of this notoriously exotic gang of artists as if he were an amateur anthropologist smitten by an eccentric tribe." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Something's Gotta Give (2003)

"Nancy Meyers squanders the abundant talents at her disposal on a film whose look and vision seem to have been borrowed from commercials for cholesterol medications." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Once upon a Time in Mexico (2003)

"A splendid cast and spectacular orgies of carnage combine to produce a surprisingly creaky, labored, and boring movie." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Taking Lives (2004)

"When, at length, the promised climax does arrive, it will leave you gasping in astonishment, provided that you have never been to the movies before." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Shattered Glass (2003)

"Screenwriter and first-time director Billy Ray turns the story of Glass' self-destruction into a gripping psychological thriller." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The Day After Tomorrow (2004)

"The patched-together human side of the story doesn't stand a chance against the special effects, which are frequently fun to look at." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Mickey (2004)

"Mickey manages to suck the poetry and camaraderie out of the baseball-movie formula, and what's left over is a mean-spirited hunger for victory at all costs." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)

"If we want to judge Anchorman by its own standards, we can observe that nothing in the movie lives up to, say, Toonces the driving cat." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

"The original movie had a vision - quirky, unnerving, enduring - but the version now in theaters just has a market niche." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Collateral (2004)

"We're supposed to be fascinated by what makes Cruise's Vincent tick, but he turns out to be just a heavily armed gasbag." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Suspect Zero (2004)

"Merhige treats the laughable plot as if it were high existential drama. He smothers what might have been a solid B picture in relentless art-house pretension." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Cellular (2004)

"A slick, unpretentious little film that's content with glowering villains, winsome protagonists and plot twists that provoke the occasional mild gasp." Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
