So utterly inconsequential it fades from memory long before it's even over.

This is the sort of movie that panders to teens ... while it ineffectually lectures them about the need to bear down on the books.

A documentary with a terrific name but a blurry premise.

Latter Days (2004)
Cox, who wrote Sweet Home Alabama, again trades heavily in stereotype and coincidence for his directing debut.

An enjoyably spare and fast- moving French thriller.

Every bit as cliched, amateurish and feeble as its predecessors.

Made-Up (2004)
The well-intentioned but wobbly directing debut of character actor Tony Shalhoub tries to be many things -- romantic comedy, mockumentary, a satire on beauty and aging -- but ends up succeeding at none.

One of the best climbing movies ever made, doing justice to a sport that has not been well served by the cinema.

1.5/4
An over-the-top supernatural thriller so ridiculous it's unintentionally funnier than some of his recent comedies like My Boss's Daughter.

2/4
A cast of sparkly young actors and the odd blip of genuine sweetness help sugarcoat tonal inconsistencies, the bluntness of the satire and the utter implausibility of the plot.

Crimson Gold (2004)
It offers a rare glimpse into the lives of the Iranian wealthy. And it does so in the service of a surprisingly bleak, radically class-conscious vision of Iranian life.

Cuba: Island of Music is enjoyable as a primer in Afrocentric music and dance. As a political statement, however, it's pretty much of a dud.

Bedtime Story seems a more appropriate name for the snoozy and unconvincing Australian drama.

Recycles gags from various, more successful gross-out and romantic comedies, but without any zest or imagination.

An entertaining treat that proves there's plenty of life left in traditional 2-D animation.

Torque (2004)
A full-throttle video-game ride for the MTV set.

The finished product looks like it was thrown together during a lunch break -- by a drunk person.

A feather-light, doggedly formulaic romantic comedy that's almost instantly forgettable despite the sunny presence of teen queen Mandy Moore.

Monster (2004)
Jenkins doesn't stint on the sickening reality of Wuornos' abhorrent behavior -- it's Theron's complex, deeply felt depiction of a thoroughly messed-up soul that forces us to look beyond the monstrous nature of her acts.

The Company (2003)
Altman presents a fly-on-the-wall insight into the lives of a group of people whose public face is one of unadulterated grace and beauty - but whose private existence is as disorderly as anyone's.

A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.

1.5/4
All you need to know about the slapdash, bogus kiddie flick Cheaper by the Dozen can be summed up by the fact that Ashton Kutcher, making a glorified cameo as a narcissistic model-slash- actor, is the best thing in it.

Paycheck (2003)
Unlike Woo's Face/Off or Broken Arrow, there are no stunts, special effects or kinetic moments in Paycheck that really blow you away.

3.5/4
An exquisitely crafted Civil War epic that combines the epic romantic sweep of Gone With the Wind with a more intimate voice that speaks eloquently to the war-weary nation of today.

Despite its more tendentious moments and sometimes irritating slickness, Fog of War is every bit as fascinating and unnerving as its subject.

Calendar Girls may be boomer-baiting formula, but this ingratiating, big-hearted holiday treat is as British as plum pudding -- and the closest thing on the market to the famous Ealing comedies.

Sanctimonious, relentlessly predictable and willfully ignorant of the period it's set in.

AKA (2002)
Watching three frames at once is disconcerting at first, but eventually the experience gives the film a high-tech boost.

It would be hard to overpraise Johansson -- who could hardly look more perfect for the part -- for her extraordinary ability to convey so much emotion with so few words.

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.
