Delta Farce (2007)
A romantic flicker between the dumpy Larry and a pretty local senorita defies all logic -- even in a movie this illogical.

3/4
That they've assembled a first-rate cast made up of veteran character actors and contemporary comedy stars to pursue this agenda makes The Wendell Baker Story all the more effective.

3/4
The results are uneven, but with each segment focused on a different arrondissement and only about five minutes in length, one does not have to linger in any neighborhood -- good or bad -- for very long before its time to move on.

Zoo (2007)
Zoo, with its idiosyncratic subject matter, may not be the easiest sell in the world, but anyone interested in provocative, challenging, and unexpected fare owes it to themselves to check it out.

Why would anyone want to spend time with these characters in the first place?

It alternates between bleak cynicism and a genuinely romantic sensibility, and this unusual combination makes the movie a great vehicle for Keaton and Valletta, and a compelling drama for the audience.

4/4
Like John Cassavetes and Martin Scorsese, Jaglom knows how to push a scene into realms of such emotional nakedness that the viewer starts to feel like a voyeur looking in on relationships that are none of his or her business.

Even Money (2006)
Robert Tannen's first-produced screenplay certainly doesn't lack for story -- or clichés, for that matter. Nor does Tannen skimp on trite, predictable plot twists, or well-worn, stock characters in his pedestrian script.

Though there's little original about Brooklyn Rules, it's an engaging tale of lifelong friends navigating the 'hood, dodging crime, and finding their places in the real world.

Once (2007)
Forget the generic title, Once is an utterly beguiling, pitch perfect romantic musical that speaks volumes about love, passion, creativity, and hope.

The narrative momentum and comic energy begin to flag right about the point Shrek and his sidekicks begin their quest for Artie, who's an exceedingly bland addition to the cast of characters.

The longing is palpable, for love and for just companionship. In this languorous world, the drama's title speaks volumes. No one wants to sleep alone.

Blind Dating (2007)
The fact that Blind Dating provides a relationship between two characters whom the audience desperately wants to see wind up together is ultimately all that matters.

The doc does a fine job conveying the magic of the Broadway experience, along with the particular heart and soul of those who work there.

2/4
A brain-dead action movie. 28 Days Later director Danny Boyle and that movie's screenwriter Alex Garland serve as executive producers this time around and they should be ashamed of themselves for so blatantly selling out their original vision.

The Ex (2007)
If Braff really wants a movie career, he is going to have to do better than this mediocrity. Why should anyone pay to see this when they can catch his act on TV for free?

Georgia Rule (2007)
Frankly, it's a wonder that stars Jane Fonda and Felicity Huffman didn't belly up to the bar alongside Lohan, once they read Mark Andrus' screenplay, an atonal, ersatz mix of garden-variety family dysfunction and rank 'chick flick' clichés.

This is one off-the-wall sex comedy. It is even occasionally actually funny in its offbeat fashion, but it is essentially stupid and the forays into sexual violence are downright ugly.

Lucky You (2007)
Normally appealing actors Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore generate zero sparks as the unlikely couple, whose low-wattage romance apparently bores Hanson as much as it does the viewer, for he devotes far more screen time to poker than their relationship.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)
This is the stuff of Douglas Sirk, not comic books, and while that is bound to strike some fans as just plain wrong, it is a refreshing new take on an old story.

Civic Duty (2006)
A provocative, unsettling tale about a powerful nation on the defensive.

Waitress (2007)
Waitress runs on a bit, but with its strong acting, poignant moments, and fair share of laughs, it has the potential to become a modest hit.

Wind Chill (2007)
Wind Chill suffers from an underdeveloped screenplay, which feels like a first draft, erroneously deemed ready for production.

Compressing Obree's story into an hour and a half makes it seem less astonishing than it actually is -- the triumphs seem too easily won, and the problems too quickly resolved.

[Goyer's] reliance on pointless montage sequences to push the dawdling narrative forward reduce an eerily intriguing idea for a character-driven supernatural thriller to just another mopey wallow in teen angst.

This cruddy-looking, Rip Van Winkle-esque slough through 1980s-era pop culture detritus joins an already crowded field of contenders for Razzie recognition at year's end.

Snow Cake (2006)
If anyone ever had any doubt that great actors can elevate a movie, they need look no further than Snow Cake for the proof that they can.

the bottom line is that Kazi and his cohorts would be even better served by a film that was more than only intermittently involving, and The Hip Hop Project is not that film.

Diggers (2007)
Though nothing too earth-shaking happens, the movie is filled with a slew of compelling scenes, strongly performed under director Katherine Dieckmann's discerning eye.

As for the singing, it's pleasant but unctuous and, frankly, made me squirm.

The title is not just a description of the competitors; it is also a warning, as in catch this at the multiplex and know that you are condemning yourself to 112 minutes of pure punishment.

Jindabyne (2006)
Only the third feature film Lawrence has directed since the surreal black comedy cult favorite Bliss (1985), Jindabyne marks yet another triumph for the director.

The Valet (2007)
I think it's safe to say the time may have passed for Francis Veber's particular brand of French farce, especially if he's going to keep cranking out stuff as tiring and contrived as The Valet.

Educational, but it's also an enjoyably goofy comedy that will appeal to fans of Mad TV and Saturday Night Live.

Stephanie Daley ultimately stays with you is chiefly due to Tamblyn, late of television's Joan of Arcadia. She gives a penetrating, stunningly unaffected performance that should be remembered, come award season.

Vacancy (2007)
It wants to be Hostel for nice, respectable folks, an objective that ultimately seems to be rather pointless in spite of the obvious talent behind and in front of the camera.

Hair High (2004)
It's a wickedly fine ensemble and Plympton gives everyone free rein, which is no surprise from the creator of this irreverent, freewheeling delight.

Their amorality isn't presented in a conventional manner; it's depicted in an unremarkable, matter-of-fact style that makes it all the more realistic -- and all the more unsettling.

[Creators] Willis and Maiellaro simply do not have enough material to fill a movie that clocks in at 86 minutes. Too much humor falls flat and there are too many stretches where not much happens at all.
