Director David Mirkin, whose Romy and Michele's High School Reunion was similarly afflicted, never gets the timing right and allows the story to drag with little internal logic.

The story hits and misses for more than two hours following its opening artillery bloodbath.

See Spot Run (2001)
Feebly mixes gangster spoof, buddy flick, Home Alone horseplay, animal adventure and wan romance, reeks worse than lead David Arquette after he slips in doggie doo.

1.5/4
It nearly qualifies as a guilty pleasure. But blame Keanu Reeves for ruining its chances for so- bad- it's- good status.

Hannibal (2001)
Hannibal won't even be a footnote when the year's best movies are grabbing the ink in December.

It feels like a movie some other actress rejected -- you can almost see Sandra Bullock using the screenplay manuscript as a coffee coaster.

Snatch (2001)
Snatch will likely grab those who like their movies fast, furious and fun.

The Pledge (2001)
Just when you're about to lose patience, something honest or credible happens.

This skin-deep MTV Films production is more about promoting soundtrack sales than social causes.

Traffic (2000)
Stephen Gaghan's script mines nearly 2 1/2 hours of consistently credible drama from four interlocked stories.

Bruce Greenwood is exceptional as JFK -- quite a surprise after his smarmy villainous turns in Double Jeopardy and Rules of Engagement.

The story is schematic and the hero/villain matchup a little too obvious, but never underestimate the charisma of Connery.

Cast Away (2000)

As a FedEx troubleshooter who survives a plane crash, Hanks performs a bravura solo spin.

Calling Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon a religious experience may be overstating the case a bit, but Ang Lee's rhapsodically romantic martial arts enthraller certainly redeems a slew of sins in this lackluster movie year.

2.5/4
The visuals are stunning, but that's not enough. They can't make up for this predictable story populated by cardboard-cutout characters. The film needs more rescuing than that.

Hollow Man (2000)
Ultimately the title is most revealing. It's hollow, man.

3.5/4
Depp is as good here as he was in Ed Wood and Donnie Brasco, which means the movie has a lot more going for it than special effects, as sizzling as they are.

The script trips all over itself to be hip and flip before it takes a desperate dip into utter conventionality: dull car chases, explosions, inept slapstick.

2.5/4
Reiner benefits from divine intervention from no less than Miss M herself. Bette Midler flings the usual zingers with fang-baring zeal in a part that plays to her brassy strengths.

Eve's Bayou (1996)
Smollett, however, is a find with a smile that illuminates the screen -- the dominant performer in a uniformly well-acted film.

Soul Food (1997)
An attractive cast and lingering shots of artery-busting delights that amount to pigout pornography.

There's a lack of dramatic focus, and the leads fail to evince any particular chemistry.

The movie is good fun, boasting a dozen vivid characters and two that moviegoers will take to heart.

Gattaca (1997)
If smart sci-fi is your vial of tea, Gattaca won't disappoint.

The same sick story. Even the small touches seem stale.

1.5/4
Mowing the lawn might be more involving than watching this subpar sci-fi sequel, which manages to be complicated and witless at the same time.
