Skillful, tight editing reveals the volatile patterns of behavior, shifting suddenly from fights to confessions, dancing to despair, yet in the end the girls are always fiercely supportive of each other.

A rousing documentary on the street children of Cairo, These Girls is an agonizing and uplifting depiction of street survival at its most daunting.

You can't make a movie about the Boogey Man without showing him at least once.

Can a yarn without credibility, can a comedy without laughs, can characters without a centre, can direction without discernment, add up to a movie?

This summer-fling comedy turns out to be as generic as its title suggests.
