The most gut-bustingly funny movie so far this year.

2.5/4
Uniformly excellent performances keep this destabilizing tale ticking, yet one can't help wishing Hollywood had combined this cast and these timely themes with a little bit of imagination to come up with something fresh.

The Village (2004)
The Village pours on creepy atmosphere, but this dud is too intent on delivering its liberal 'message' to actually deliver the kinds of scares it promises in the terrific trailer.

So terrifically entertaining, it would be a shame if it didn't inspire a companion piece on New York.

Garden State (2004)
Braff proves himself a master of modulation, keeping a sure grip as the film's tone shifts like quicksand from humor to pathos and back.

She Hate Me (2004)
May not be subtle or disciplined, but it is funny as hell.

There are a few effective scenes ... but not enough to keep Ju-on on the fright track.

3/4
Brims with energy, carefully drawn characters and fine acting, and sad-eyed Deborah Ten Brink, as Manu's daughter, is a scene-stealer.

Deb Ellis and Dennis Mueller's tight and deceptively low-key documentary lets the subject eloquently speak for himself.

Nola (2003)
A dubious script that detonates into a full-blown disaster midway through.

A cheaply made, occasionally repetitive, but passionately argued documentary.

1.5/4
A peculiarly bloodless variation on Jules and Jim suffused with the kind of pretentious gentility that some critics will mistake for seriousness.

A classy if over-caffeinated sequel.

Catwoman (2004)

3.5/4
By ensuring that the focus remains on the captivating Moreno, Marston gives life to a pawn in an ugly game.

Flavors (2003)
There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some.

Freestyle (2000)
A solid documentary that examines the art's roots, from ad-libs by black preachers to 'toasts' delivered by Jamaican immigrants over instrumental tracks in the '70s South Bronx.

A clever and big- hearted gay screwball comedy.

I, Robot (2004)
Surprisingly smart, cool-looking, nicely paced and well-acted.

1.5/4
An instantly forgettable wisp of marshmallow that revisits the same teen-crush cliches that have surely been in play since the days of the classic fairy tale it ransacks for inspiration.

1.5/4
Frank is a worthy subject, but this treatment amounts to not much more than a somewhat extraneous sidebar to last month's The Hunting of the President.

Shot for practically nothing by first-time director David Barker, it delivers more bang for its minimal bucks than many a Hollywood blockbuster does for its multimillions.

An astonishingly intimate look at the disconnect between the hard-partying image that earned the band the nickname Alcohollica and the behind-the-scenes reality.

Sleepover (2004)
If ever a movie could be charged with imperiling the morals of a minor, it's probably Sleepover.

Ferrell is funny spouting his weird stream-of-consciousness rants, but too often the plot leaves him hanging and he resorts to just Yelling Really Loud.

De-Lovely (2004)
De-Lovely twinkles and glows, but all the surface razzle-dazzle fails to mask the emptiness at its core.

Credit the disarming cast, especially Oshri Cohen as the boy and Arie Ellias as his eccentric grandfather. They help turn what could be a standard comedy into a life-affirming, enjoyable one.

The Clearing (2004)
It all adds up to an acute character study -- but as a thriller, it's too cerebral to quicken the pulse.

Watching this film from veteran commercial director and cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg is like being subjected to an endless ad for Coke or insurance.

4/4
It tells of a love affair so heady it generates goose bumps, yet the story unfolds with such unfailing honesty that its characters become people we know, their actions and words a reflection of our own experiences.

Contains little that is particularly new or compelling, save an emotional interview with Whitewater principal Susan McDougal.
