Windtalkers (2002)
The code talkers deserved better than a hollow tribute.

Affleck merely creates an outline for a role he still needs to grow into, a role that Ford effortlessly filled with authority.

Just watch Bettany strut his stuff. You'll know a star when you see one.

Coppola has made a film of intoxicating atmosphere and little else.

Enough (2002)
You expect more from director Michael Apted (Enigma) and screenwriter Nicholas Kazan (Reversal of Fortune) than this cliche pileup.

4/5
It takes a while for this oddball film -- a mosaic of stories in the style of Magnolia -- to take hold, but when it does, it grabs you hard.

A striking tale of intrigue set during the French Revolution.

3.5/5
Parker pushes a bit -- who knew Earnest had a love duet sung by Algy and Jack? -- but he proves this vintage bubbly hasn't lost its fizz.

Funny but perilously slight.

Unfaithful (2002)
This seductive tease of a thriller gets the job done. It's a scorcher.

Insomnia (2002)

4.5/5
Like Vardalos and Corbett, who play their roles with vibrant charm, the film, directed by Joel Zwick, is heartfelt and hilarious in ways you can't fake.

Enigma (2002)
Jagger, Stoppard and director Michael Apted ... deliver a riveting and surprisingly romantic ride.

[D'Onofrio is] the fire in the belly of this cool groove of a movie.

The Rookie (2002)

2/5
Bullock ... seems to have nothing deeper in mind than doing a sappy big-screen version of TV's CSI.

3/5
Despite slick production values and director Roger Michell's tick-tock pacing, the final effect is like having two guys yelling in your face for two hours.

Big Trouble (2002)
The big problem with Big Trouble, despite a fine cast and director, is that the damn thing isn't funny.

4.5/5
Elegant, funny and unexpectedly touching, this whodunit about a murder aboard the yacht of William Randolph Hearst represents a bracing comeback for Peter Bogdanovich.

Human Nature (2002)
The movie lacks the energizing force that Jonze, a producer on this film, gave Malkovich.
Posted Mar 28, 2002

Plodding, peevish and gimmicky.

3/5
Peploe's smarts and the deft performances can't compensate for the fact that what we're watching, however charming, is a fancifully costumed theater piece that cuts off the oxygen needed to make a play breathe onscreen.

2/5
DeVito, who appears as Smoochy's devious agent, errs by pitching the performances too high, making the film feel tight and claustrophobic.

The tenderness of the piece is still intact.

2/5
Director Elie Chouraqui, who co-wrote the script, catches the chaotic horror of war, but why bother if you're going to subjugate truth to the tear-jerking demands of soap opera?

4/5
Watching Haneke's film is, aptly enough, a challenge and a punishment. But watching Huppert, a great actress tearing into a landmark role, is riveting.

[A] painfully flat gross-out comedy ...

Showtime (2002)
De Niro looks bored, Murphy recycles Murphy, and you mentally add Showtime to the pile of Hollywood dreck that represents nothing more than the art of the deal.

Every once in a while, a movie comes out of nowhere to kick up your spirits.

Lehmann, far from the glory days of Heathers, has made a movie about a hard-on, in which he relentlessly pounds a flaccid premise.

3.5/5
Has an impact that transcends politics and some dramatic overreaching by writer-director Randall Wallace.

Crossroads (2002)
If you're not the target demographic ... this movie is one long chick-flick slog.

Dragonfly (2002)
Shadyac, who belongs with the damned for perpetrating Patch Adams, trots out every ghost trick from The Sixth Sense to The Mothman Prophecies.

Last Orders (2002)
A funny and touching film that is gorgeously acted by a British cast to rival Gosford Park's.

Stolen Summer would hardly be worth comment were it not for the story of how the film got made.

Hart's War (2002)
Director Gregory Hoblit (Primal Fear) is merely arranging cliches in new patterns until the surprise ending blows enough pro-military fervor up the audience's ass to make Colin Powell call a halt.

Walken is so funny, he almost makes you forget this flick is one joke stretched thinner than Calista Flockhart.
