      Casanova (2005) Casanova is a silly film. Half Carry On, half Shakespearean comedy, everyone in it is perfectly nice and should reassemble to make a great Twelfth Night. - Daily Telegraph (UK)

      Shopgirl (2005) Steve Martin's script sneers at the vanity of fake LA girls and their plastic surgery. He is in no position to sneer. - Daily Telegraph (UK)

      Proof (2005) It's that breed of verbal swordplay that so impresses on stage while seeming so redundant and brittle on screen. - Daily Telegraph (UK)
