86% Trading Places (1983) Landis' direction is deft, but the sparkling performances are the real draw not only by Murphy and Aykroyd but also by Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy as the meddling oldsters, Denholm Elliott as the gentlemanly servant and Jamie Lee Curtis.‐ Associated Press

71% Pink Floyd - The Wall (1982) It's a pretty grim portrait, but even worse it is often repetitive and boring. There are probably enough powerful segments for half a dozen or so outstanding rock videos but not a full-length feature.‐ Associated Press

33% The Man Who Loved Women (1983) The warmth that might have made this film work never materializes and slickness is no substitute.‐ Associated Press

No Score Yet Puberty Blues (1981) Puberty Blues stands out... on several counts. For one thing, it focuses on girls. For another, its handling of sexual initiation is realistic in welcome contrast to the raunchy comedy-glamour-fantasy treatment sex is given in other summer offerings.‐ Associated Press

No Score Yet Some Kind of Hero (1982) It may not sound like much of a howler, but with Pryor's talent and Michael Pressman's able directing, there are plenty of laughs and some touching moments as well --most of them in the first half.‐ Associated Press

21% Give My Regards to Broad Street (1984) Give My Regards To Broad Street... has two main things going for it: The ever-charming McCartney presence and McCartney s music, old and new But even together, they are not enough to carry a full length feature.‐ Associated Press

62% Cat People (1982) Cat People, director Paul Schrader's remake of a 1942 B-movie, combines explicit sex, graphic violence, special effects and the supernatural and somehow falls flat.‐ Associated Press

No Score Yet Starstruck (1982) Starstruck, the latest effort by Australian director Gillian Armstrong... is a new wave rock musical-fairy tale aimed at the teen audience but likely to elicit a chuckle or two from whatever members of the older crowd it manages to attract.‐ Associated Press

95% This Is Spinal Tap (1984) Reiner, with McKean, Guest and Harry Shearer, have done a great job in creating and portraying characters that are dimwitted, cliched and yet oddly endearing.‐ Associated Press
