The action plods, the characterizations are thin and inconsistent, and worst of all the comedy's not very funny.

55/100
However neatly packaged, The Contender is double-dealing baloney.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4
80 minutes of comic mistiming and missed opportunities.

5
Bamboozled (2000)
Unfunny scarcely covers it; Lee's ideas are cherry bombs indiscriminately thrown, and the resulting mess is arduous.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
6
What Lies Beneath is startlingly shallow even for a summer movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7
A perfectly sweet-natured, passable family entertainment.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
8
How did smart people of proven talent make such a lame movie?
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Ronin (1998)
Clunky and contrived!

Soldier (1998)

80/100
Billy Elliot (2000)
Movies that are labeled 'feel-good' often sound as inviting as a Sally Field Oscar acceptance speech, but Billy Elliot, a U.K. import, comes by its sentiment honestly.

It's a real space bomb.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
13
Guided by famed visual-effects supervisor John Dykstra, the folks at Sony Imageworks have created some furry fun.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14
Go (1999)
An adrenaline-fueled joyride!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
15
The Waterboy (1998)
The trailer for 'The Waterboy' contains anything and everything from the film that might captivate an audience-the rest is just chafe.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
Pitch Black (2000)
Decent, suspenseful entertainment.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17
A pretty consistent bungle in the jungle.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
18
Payback (1999)
So generic that it sometimes approaches the self-parody of a Naked Gun movie!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
Best in Show (2000)
The film's bite is as toothsome as its bark.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20
A diaphanous daydream of clichés, predictable developments, strained romance, and frequently embarrassing dialogue.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
It has no subtlety, no shadings, and no suspense, and might as well not have a screenplay.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Wholly predictable and implausible plotting, thin characterizations, and stilted dialogue!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23
A compelling, if somewhat choppy, tragic drama!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
In terms of raw wit and fearless satire, the South Park kids put Mike Myers and Adam Sandler to shame.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
Committed (2000)
Ambiguous enough to let you contemplate the thin line between love and obsession.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
Loser (2000)
Nothing's helped by a hasty ending.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27
Younger, less discriminating viewers (5-year-old boys) will eat it up.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
A sweetly sentimental romance that shrewdly capitalizes on the foolproof allure of its stars.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29
Mystery Men (1999)
A refreshing, oddball summer entertainment with a sharp sense of humor.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
30
End of Days (1999)
Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest vehicle, End of Days, is such a witless, bombastic, by-the-numbers hunk of millennial hooey it made me nostalgic for Commando.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
A supremely, almost effortlessly inventive and hilarious experience.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
Pushing Tin (1999)
A refreshing, funny character-driven treat.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
33
The Muse (1999)
The Muse is sketch-comedy thin and features an overdone comic performance from Sharon Stone, making it Brooks' least satisfying film in quite a while.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
Practical Magic doesn't cast much of a spell!
Posted Jan 1, 2000

70/100
The 6th Day (2000)
File this one somewhere in the upper echelon of Arnold films -- it won't make you forget The Terminator, but it's much more endurable than the likes of Eraser.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
The Insider (1999)
Absolutely riveting.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37
This is a franchise in deep spiritual trouble.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38
A vigorous, romping, hugely entertaining movie!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
Titus (1999)
Titus does no justice to Shakespeare.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
Wonder Boys (2000)
This is certainly the best studio movie of the new year to date, and Douglas might even be remembered at next year's Oscars.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
It's so plot heavy it never finds its nimble comic rhythm.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
A solar bore!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
American Pie (1999)
Irresistibly raunchy!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44
A middling Old West oater that falls flat at least as often as it finds the funny bone.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
45
Paints its characters in strokes so broad just one would cover a barn, and, in the end, indulges in lame, dull digital effects that would put a 5-year-old to sleep.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
46
Before long, the character simply becomes irritating.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
47
As empty as a Don King pay-per-view bout.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48
How many more times are we going to have to sit through that feeble gag about the latex glove and the body cavity search?
Posted Jan 1, 2000
49
Can't match its visual poetry with compelling drama.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
50
The 13th Warrior indulges in enough grubby histrionics and costume-adventure clichés to give you fifth-grade flashbacks.
