Women here and abroad are going to laugh with her, cry with her, steam with her, frost with her and totally identify after this gloriously full, heartfelt, generous performance.

Kingdom Come (2001)
There's not much this gifted cast can do with the Bottrell-Jones script.

Has substance to match its sparkle, sassiness and, yes, volleys of girlish squealing.

Me You Them (2001)
The big screen hasn't shown us a more earthy, commanding woman since Italy's iconic Anna Magnani made her stand.

No matter how average the script, the direction or the company, any movie that stars Freeman is worth two hours and nearly 10 bucks.

An uncommonly delightful comedy for the family audience.

You leave not only engaged with the three main characters, but also wondering about their fate, hoping for the best.

Blow (2001)
There's a been there, done that quality to this picture for anyone who saw the far nervier, more flamboyant Scarface -- not to mention the far grittier, urgent Traffic.

Tomcats (2001)
An inept, gross variation on Farrelly brothers' themes.

The smartest cinematic take on he/she in memory.

The Brothers (2001)
Smart, earthy and, in its own way, tender, The Brothers packs a powerfully entertaining punch.

2/4
Though far less polished (and pricey) than the average studio movie, an independent film such as Too Much Sleep easily makes up in pith and becoming modesty what it lacks in flash.

Say It Isn't So attempts a copycat offensive in distractingly hurky-jerky style; the script moves in fits and starts and the cutting doesn't smooth things out a bit.

Although it is not without flaw, Enemy at the Gates makes its point in compelling fashion.

Exit Wounds (2001)
Swift, tricky cutting helps to some degree but there's no denying that the big guy seems sluggish and weary.

The new film confirms that Lemmons and Jackson are a movie team made in heaven.

3/4
It has highly appealing stars, plenty of pep, a delicately pointed sense of humor about everything from movie geeks to social climbers.

15 Minutes (2001)
De Niro and rising star Edward Burns have just enough knowing, gritty give-and-take in 15 Minutes to make you hungry for more.

The Mexican (2001)
At a time when action and effects dominate the movies, it's plain refreshing to run into a picture that rolls around playfully in the language.

See Spot Run (2001)
See Spot Run is so guileless and good-natured that you may just find yourself enjoying it almost half as much as the child who brought you along to the movie.

Last Resort (2001)
There's no denying that Last Resort is motivated by heart and solidly humane, altruistic intentions. The romantic glaze on the heartfelt core of the film, however, suggests commercial longings -- and naivete.

Monkeybone (2001)
The showy visuals rest on nothing firmer than a marshmallow bed of chaos and confusion.

A guilty pleasure for more than a few ticket buyers who rarely get a chance to indulge their weakness for this sort of story.

By midpoint in the movie, you feel somewhat left out of the central joke. You feel as if the characters are in on the fun of the payoff, but not the audience.

Hannibal (2001)
It fails to create the deeply threatening vacuum that is the original's claim to enduring fame and resonance.

The main reason to see Before Night Falls is Bardem, one of the few modern actors with real animal appeal and the guts to show it.

Even 12-year-old girls will see it as the defensive and moronic excuse for a comedy about modern sexual politics that it is.
