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

Hitch (2005)
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.

Constantine (2005)
It just so happens that I always had a theory on how to visit hell, too: Sit in a chair and watch a Keanu Reeves movie.

Be Cool (2005)
There's some fun to be had here, but measured against Get Shorty, the movie doesn't fare so well.

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.

Guess Who (2005)
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.

As for female characters, in the xXx franchise, there are only two types of women: the ones with big breasts, and the ones with even bigger breasts.

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.

No doubt there have been more intriguing tales played out in its halls than the passable whodunit the movie provides, but this one does have its moments

The Aviator (2004)
[A]n empathetic, supremely entertaining portrait of a tortured man; DiCaprio's is one of the best screen performances in many a moon.

Stiller - by starring in Meet the Fockers, one of the year's final releases - pulls into a buzzer-beating tie with Jude Law as the most-overexposed actor of the movie year.

There's a simple word to describe Finding Neverland, but it's one that too few movies can qualify for these caustic days: lovely.

Not even the eye candy animation is all that great. The film has a flat look that matches it comedic tone.

Mr. 3000 (2004)
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.

Cellular (2004)
It isn't terrible, even if there are too many moments that rely on the central characters being either extremely stupid or unforgivably forgetful.

[Mann] has unimpeachable visual flair ... spinning through camera angles to aptly demonstrate the disconnected, disjointed feel of L.A.

Sleepover (2004)
Unless you're an extremely undiscriminating 14-year-old girl, sleeping through Sleepover is the only way to escape unscathed.

Emotionally, it's a high-wire act as dazzling as any of the CGI effects that pack all those big budget blockbusters.

De-Lovely (2004)
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.

The Notebook (2004)
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.

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.
