2/4
Overripe dialogue and a fevered score fail to inject any real tension, and the accentless English spoken throughout a film set entirely in France is ludicrous and jarring.

A sexed-up Afterschool Special pretty much guaranteed to render audiences comatose.

Stuck on You (2003)
While the belly laughs are few, there are numerous chuckles and it's quite watchable, thanks to solid performances by Damon and Kinnear.

Power Trip (2003)
The entire dispute is bizarre, and Devlin taps into that. His approach is light-hearted but never flip, balancing the company's plight and the public's ire.

Big Fish (2003)
There are quirks aplenty in Big Fish, but spirited performances from a talented cast, led by a standout Finney as the slippery-fish raconteur, help domesticate the wall-to-wall weirdness.

Coming-of-age movies are usually pretty dismal, so it's refreshing to discover Monsieur Ibrahim, one that's worth recommending.

Honey (2003)
Its by-the- numbers plot is depressingly familiar, and each line of dialogue is so predictable that the script could have been generated by a computer.

2.5/4
A rough-hewn, modest little road movie of sorts, elevated by a trio of compelling performances and a desire to take the narrative road less traveled.

Samir's presentation is uninspired and too long. It's outdated, too.

Perry, a longtime filmmaker, should have given the doc more urgency and punch.

Some of the afflictions are so disturbing, you might have to turn your eyes from the children. Susan Tom doesn't have that option. And 11 children are all the better for it.

A fiendishly clever movie from promising young Hungarian director Gyorgy Palfi.

In America (2003)
It's a wistful yet penetrating film, shot through with magic realism and life-affirming humor, that gets you deep down where you live.

The Cooler (2003)
The best thing Baldwin has done in years, and a triumph of low-budget storytelling by a director to watch.

Director Trapero drives home his message -- the thin line between crooks and cops -- without hitting viewers over the head or seeming to point fingers.

The advertising slogan for The Haunted Mansion warns, 'Check your pulse at the door' -- pretty cheeky for a movie that flatlines for almost all of its 98 minutes.

Timeline (2003)
This is not just a 'B-movie' -- it's a B-movie that fails to entertain on any level.

The Missing (2003)

El Leyton (2003)
El Leyton never rises above the level of a soap opera, although the steamy sex and Lo's abundant nudity might make it worthwhile for some viewers.

21 Grams (2003)
The title refers to the weight -- perhaps the soul -- the body is said to lose at the precise moment of death. But 21 Grams has no shortage of soul, wit or intelligence.

Rosemary Rodriguez makes a worthy debut with this troubling tale of a young druggie struggling to survive on the streets of the East Village.

It took a committee of directors and scriptwriters to assemble this oafish farce, brimming with creaky jokes, frenzied overacting and 'madcap' moments such as an ineptly staged pie-in- the-face bar brawl.

Even at an embarrassingly short 82 minutes, Cat is stuffed with inane filler.

Proof that Hollywood can make a smart $150 million movie that doesn't insult the audience's intelligence.

Tupac: Resurrection gives us a little bit of both but, more than that, leaves us with the impression that Tupac Shakur had a lot more left to say.

This is a micro-budgeted tribute to Hollywood musicals of the '40s and '50s that's all the more endearing for its flaws.

2.5/4
A runaway train of pratfalls (for the kids) and in-jokes (for the adults), spiked with scores of cameos from Looney Tunes staples such as Marvin the Martian, Foghorn Leghorn, Tweety Bird, Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzalez.

Ultimately has a somewhat unfinished quality that complements the movie's themes -- and Hall's haunting performance.

My Architect (2004)
An immensely enjoyable portrait of a strange-looking, non-comforming genius who loved women as much as designing masterpieces but was never able to commit to them.

The powerfully understated charmer, The Station Agent, is nothing more - and nothing less -- than the quiet study of a gently unfurling friendship between three misfits.

Martin & Orloff might have worked as a 10-minute sketch, but Lawrence Blume's low-budget feature quickly wears thin.
