1/5 Grown Ups (2010) Richard Roeper Come on Sandler, you've got all the money in the world. Challenge yourself instead of headlining crap like this. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2010
4.5/5 Please Give (2010) Richard Roeper One of the best movies of the year so far. An insightful, darkly funny and multi-layered character study about class and family. EDIT

Tropic Thunder (2008) Richard Roeper Some of it is very funny, some of it is too broad. EDIT
Posted Aug 18, 2008
The Rocker (2008) Richard Roeper It is a goofy and amusing late summer film with more than enough laughs to recommend it. EDIT
Posted Aug 18, 2008

Posted Aug 18, 2008

Posted Aug 18, 2008
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) Richard Roeper Penelope Cruz deserves a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her fiery, crazy, sexy work in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2008
Hell Ride (2008) Richard Roeper Maybe only once every six months am I in the mood for jokey sadism, but this struck me as the right picture for the right time. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2008
Pineapple Express (2008) Richard Roeper Watching Pineapple Express is like sitting dead sober in a room with a bunch of stoned people who are laughing uproariously. They're having a great time. You're not. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2008
Elegy (2008) Richard Roeper Wonderful writing, good performances, beautiful photography, and a lot of food for thought. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2008
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008) Richard Roeper You believe these four are friends now and will probably be friends when they're little old ladies. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2008
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) Richard Roeper I was never a fan of the first two, but those are masterpieces compared to this clunk 'o junk. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2008
Sixty Six (2006) Richard Roeper I think it's a very heartfelt story, but we get the same thing over and over again. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2008
Swing Vote (2008) Richard Roeper Not a bad movie, probably OK to rent on DVD, but I'm saying don't rush to the theaters. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2008
Frozen River (2008) Richard Roeper What a beautiful and impressive job by first-time writer-director Courtney Hunt. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2008
CSNY: Deja Vu (2008) Richard Roeper It is a good, strong documentary. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2008
Boy A (2007) Richard Roeper Bleak but expertly rendered. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2008
Step Brothers (2008) Richard Roeper Don't watch it on an airplane, don't check it out on cable, don't walk past the bargain basement bin where it's been sold. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2008
Brideshead Revisited (2008) Richard Roeper Yes, it's a compressed version, but I found it very enjoyable. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2008
The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008) Richard Roeper The movie gets into some pretty freaky territory in the third act, but for this casual fan of the series, it's a strong effort featuring some great characters. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2008
American Teen (2008) Richard Roeper Compared to the contrived junk we see on MTV masquerading as a reality series, I think this is very authentic. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2008
Mamma Mia! (2008) Richard Roeper A lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2008
Space Chimps (2008) Richard Roeper I have to admit, there's a sort of dopey, cute, harmless charm to this movie. It actually doesn't stink. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2008
Tell No One (2006) Richard Roeper I think it's one of the best movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2008
Transsiberian (2008) Richard Roeper I'm not saying it's that good, but it's a solid if sometimes messy and confusing crime story. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2008
Hancock (2008) Richard Roeper It's definitely a mish-mash, but really good performances. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2008
Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) Richard Roeper Very good stuff. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2008
The Wackness (2008) Richard Roeper A minor triumph. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2008
Meet Dave (2008) Richard Roeper Even in C-movie junk like this, Murphy manages to wring a few laughs out of the material. But the humor is so broad it barely fits onto the screen. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2008
Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired (2008) Richard Roeper This is more about the culture of celebrity, the sensationalism, a power hungry, media-hungry judge, and all the things that have happened since then. And as such, it's a very good documentary. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2008
The Dark Knight (2008) Richard Roeper This is a rich, complex, visually thrilling piece of pop entertainment, as strong as any superhero epic we've ever seen. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2008
Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) Richard Roeper It's just a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2008

Posted Jun 30, 2008
Encounters at the End of the World (2007) Richard Roeper It's one of the best documentaries of the year, no doubt about it. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2008
Finding Amanda (2008) Richard Roeper Broderick's sunny spin on the deeply flawed Taylor is interesting but eventually defies belief. In the third act, Finding Amanda loses steam altogether. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2008
Get Smart (2008) Richard Roeper One of the more pleasant surprises of the year. EDIT
Posted Jun 23, 2008
Mongol (2007) Richard Roeper The action sequences here are first-rate, the performances are uniformly excellent, the cinematography as good as I've seen in any film this year. EDIT
Posted Jun 23, 2008

Posted Jun 23, 2008

Posted Jun 23, 2008
The Incredible Hulk (2008) Richard Roeper It's really well done. It's a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2008
The Happening (2008) Richard Roeper It almost dares you to roll your eyes or laugh at certain scenes that are supposed to be deadly serious. But, you know what, I appreciated this creatively offbeat, daring sci-fi mind-trip. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2008
The Promotion (2008) Richard Roeper This is one of the more original movies of the year, and it's the rare film that's primarily about the workplace. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2008
You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) Richard Roeper I'm all for politically incorrect humor, but there has to be humor in the political incorrectness, and I didn't get it here. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2008
Baghead (2008) Richard Roeper It's very funny, it's smart, and it could be really scary. And it really has some nice performances as well. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2008
The Foot Fist Way (2006) Richard Roeper I'm told people at Sundance a couple of years ago loved this movie. I don't know, maybe the altitude got to them. EDIT
Posted Jun 2, 2008
Sex and the City (2008) Richard Roeper Why get the band back together if you're not going to add some new songs to the greatest hits? EDIT
Posted Jun 2, 2008
Savage Grace (2007) Richard Roeper I think the director has some talent, but it's kind of a nothing tale. EDIT
Posted Jun 2, 2008
Kung Fu Panda (2008) Richard Roeper I had a great time. EDIT
