The Show (1995)
A must for fans and anyone wondering about these supposed corrupters of youth.

Nixon (1995)
Joan Allen goes beyond her chilling physical resemblance to Pat Nixon toward serious Oscar worthiness.

It's a glam-o-rama party until the trio hits the road. Suddenly, Wong Foo is all cross-dressed with no place to go -- but down.

For novelty value, you can do worse than seeing Sean Penn in a rare chance to don evening-wear on screen, but this isn't a sight to sustain a two-hour haul.

Return to Me (2000)
There is a satisfying, old-fashioned Moonstruck sensibility at work.

1.5/4

Harking back to wince-inducing sequels like The Sting II and Texasville, this DOA boo-boo needlessly expands upon Terms of Endearment.

Pretentious and show-offy, the noirish drama fairly reeks of film-student overkill.

2.5/4
Though the film exhibits a vaguely nostalgic tone, it's hardly sugar-coated, displaying an increasingly discernible edge to its portrayal of racist realities.

An Aladdin rip-off burdened by songs so dreadful that even Academy voters will refuse to nominate them.

Dinosaur (2000)
Once you get over the 'ooh-ah' factor and tuck into the ultraformulaic tale, Dinosaur is a dino-snore.

Crimson Tide (1995)
Crimson Tide is pop-action naval gazing at its finest.

1.5/4
The movie is so uninvolving that it inspires renewed respect for Broken Arrow, which was equally stupid but excitingly filmed.

Exasperatingly overstuffed, the movie finally proves disarming (to a point) on spectacle alone.

though Penn doesn't always seem to know where he's going, his movie doesn't altogether miss its destination.

Sabrina (1995)
Sydney Pollack miraculously almost pulls off his updated homage simply by choosing well and popping enough champagne corks to make us believe the wealthy are still glamorous despite Donald Trump.

Shanghai Triad concludes the sublime seven-movie collaboration of Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou and actress Gong Li with a bang worthy of the most jubilant New Year's Eve.

The story has all the thickness of a well-trimmed green, but it's a decent excuse for some heady sight gags.

2.5/4
Ben Stiller can't distill the darkness, slapstick and fantasy into a consistent directorial tone, but the leads' expert give-and-take make the movie far from unbearable.

The Net (1995)
Reminiscent of a slew of films, including The Pelican Brief and The Fugitive, The Net -- ploddingly directed by Irwin Winkler -- is frustratingly average in almost every other respect.

Pandas are many things. Adorable fuzzballs. Voracious eaters. Vanishing species. But, as actors, they are black and white and dull all over, which The Amazing Panda Adventure demonstrates all too well.

Jade (1995)

This is the second high-profile Joe Eszterhas script in three weeks, and were it not sleazy enough to make his Showgirls howlerama pass for fun, you could debate whether he or Mark Fuhrman has had a worse fall season.

Broderick is such an engaging actor that it's depressing to see him here.

Sgt. Bilko (1996)
Director Jonathan Lynn has had his hits (My Cousin Vinny) and stinkeroos (Greedy). This falls in between.

The Fan (1996)

An awful but watchable baseball movie until it degenerates into an all-out howler.

Rob Reiner's self-congratulatory Ghosts of Mississippi portrays Medgar Evers' slaying from the viewpoint of a white guy and can't even do a capable job of that.

28 Days (2000)
Many of these 28 days are as pat and superficial as anything in a routine TV movie, making a frustratingly uneven film.

Invest some patience and you'll be richly rewarded with rolling frontier vistas, butterscotch sunsets and a sweet, melancholy romance that will sneak up on you and grab your heart.

Fear (1996)
For a while, the cast is appealing enough, and the design is House Beautiful enough, to camouflage the Fatal flaws that turn the second half into an overblown, predictable snicker-fest.

There's nothing like a protracted action drama in which anti-terrorist commandos slink around the bowels of an airborne 747 and talk about what they hope to accomplish upstairs in the final shootout.

Traveller (1997)
Like Paper Moon, this mostly easygoing comedy-drama has its charms, despite promoting a dubious morality that finds amusement in ripped-off victims.
