2/4 Kicking & Screaming (2005) Austin O'Connor As the coffee-fueled Phil lurches further and further over the edge of soccer coach impropriety, you can sense Ferrell struggling to break through the lame script EDIT

3/4 Hitch (2005) Austin O'Connor James comes crashing nervously into the movie like a fat guy who went through the wrong door and ended up on the fashion show catwalk. He's perfect. EDIT

2/4 Be Cool (2005) Austin O'Connor There's some fun to be had here, but measured against Get Shorty, the movie doesn't fare so well. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2005
3/4 The Upside of Anger (2005) Austin O'Connor though it's easy to poke fun at Costner, here is a movie that, for the first time in a long time, allows him to display his goofy affability. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2005
3/4 Guess Who (2005) Austin O'Connor the movie is little more than an interracial riff on Meet the Parents, but it's consistently funny, and it's enough of a riff to make it feel fresh. EDIT

Posted May 6, 2005
3.5/4 Kingdom of Heaven (2005) Austin O'Connor The Crusades may seem like a strange source for such an entertaining summer blockbuster, but it's refreshing to see Scott going for something a bit more meaningful. EDIT

2/4 White Noise (2005) Austin O'Connor For [Keaton], a forgettable flick like this one is like a rehab stint in A ball for a big league pitcher EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2005
3.5/4 The Aviator (2004) Austin O'Connor [A]n empathetic, supremely entertaining portrait of a tortured man; DiCaprio's is one of the best screen performances in many a moon. EDIT

Posted Nov 17, 2004
4/4 Finding Neverland (2004) Austin O'Connor There's a simple word to describe Finding Neverland, but it's one that too few movies can qualify for these caustic days: lovely. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2004
2/4 Shark Tale (2004) Austin O'Connor Not even the eye candy animation is all that great. The film has a flat look that matches it comedic tone. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2004
3/4 Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004) Austin O'Connor [A]mazing to look at but not as much fun as it should be to watch. EDIT

2.5/4 Mr. 3000 (2004) Austin O'Connor Bernie Mac is effortlessly funny and constantly likable, even when he's acting like a jerk, and that's what saves Mr. 3000 from the scrap heap of broken baseball movie dreams. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2004
2/4 Cellular (2004) Austin O'Connor It isn't terrible, even if there are too many moments that rely on the central characters being either extremely stupid or unforgivably forgetful. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2004
1.5/4 Without a Paddle (2004) Austin O'Connor wholly undignified. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2004
2.5/4 Collateral (2004) Austin O'Connor [Mann] has unimpeachable visual flair ... spinning through camera angles to aptly demonstrate the disconnected, disjointed feel of L.A. EDIT

3/4 I, Robot (2004) Austin O'Connor [E]nough breathtaking visuals to make you forgive the movie its plot holes and its tendency to lapse into product placement parody. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2004

4/4 Before Sunset (2004) Austin O'Connor Emotionally, it's a high-wire act as dazzling as any of the CGI effects that pack all those big budget blockbusters. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2004
3/4 De-Lovely (2004) Austin O'Connor Director Irwin Winkler and screenwriter Jay Cocks know that Porter's songs are his story, and so they take care to weave his tunes seamlessly into their movie's structure. EDIT

Posted Jun 29, 2004
3/4 The Notebook (2004) Austin O'Connor The movie believes that Alzheimer's can take away everything but love. I don't know if that's true, but I don't see any harm in believing it is. EDIT

3/4 Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Austin O'Connor What's startling about the controversy that surrounds the movie's release is how little of its information and how few of its allegations against Bush are new. EDIT
