The Farrellys deliver something you would never expect from them: blandness.

Sin City (2005)
You know you've gone beyond run-of-the-mill movie violence when you need to use the plural for 'castrations.'

Beauty Shop (2005)
Without a real story, even a personality as indomitable as Queen Latifah can carry a movie only so far.

Guess Who (2005)
Defying the sitcom flippancy imposed upon it, Guess Who lurches into moments of relevance.

A bigger, gaudier mess than the first movie.

The comic version of Melinda's story is only mildly less somber than the tragic version.

Director Michael Schorr finds quiet, unforced hilarity in Schultze's awkward transition to nonconformity.

Pushes the least interesting relationships to the front and shoves the most interesting ones too the back.

This vehicle was designed with Allen in the driver's seat and she roars with it, giving a performance as hilarious as often as it is bitter and tragic.

Ice Princess (2005)
Deals with a surprising number of complexities for a G-rated film. Even if doesn't address all of them satisfactorily, the attempt lifts the film's scores for artistic merit.

The Ring Two (2005)
Although thoroughly mediocre, The Ring Two does make sense of the first movie.

1.5/4
Hostage (2005)
The 7-year-old is far and away the smartest character, which is one sign Hostage is an implosion waiting to happen.

Robots (2005)
A blast of fun for the whole family, Robots is a clean and precision-tuned entertainment machine.

The Jacket (2005)
The Jacket relies more on strong acting and humanist philosophy than on the desire to shock that doomed The Butterfly Effect.

Lost Horizon strangely remade as a modern Western, but at least it's not a musical.

4/5
Yes, the celebrity cameos distract, but the film focuses more on Jesus' message than the overated King of Kings If you've never seen it in widescreen, you are missing a revelation.

Godspell (1973)
Calling this the "Sesame Street" version of the Gospel would be an insult to "Sesame Street."

Uncle Nino (2003)
A superior cast and fine, believable performances lift this above an original production you would find on PAX TV.

Pooh's Heffalump Movie exists to introduce a new character that can be sold as a stuffed animal at Disney Stores.

Hitch (2005)
Hitch is one of those movies - common in the 1930s but rare today - where we envy how the stars speak so urbanely in everyday conversation

If Ed Wood had the opportunity to fall under MTV's influence, Plan Nine From Outer Space would have looked like Alone in the Dark.

It's telling that we don't find Messing's character worthy of a male prostitute's love.

Elektra (2005)
Call me squeamish, but this is my problem with Elektra, the Punisher and similar characters: Killers make lousy heroes.

With so much going on in every frame, Appleseed is one of those anime projects that shouts you to sleep.

Snatch (2001)
Fortunately, the drop in entertainment value from one Ritchie film to the next isn't as steep as the drop in originality.
