The mood here is unfocused, relying on the coarseness of the Farrelly brothers as well as the forced sincerity of a Brady Bunch episode.

2
Clever, but executed with a disappointing lack of cinematic flair.

Faithless (2001)
4
The Pledge (2001)
A massively pretentious, overdirected and overacted adaptation.
Posted Jan 19, 2001
5
The Gift (2000)
A well-told murder mystery.
Posted Jan 18, 2001
6
Snatch (2001)
7
Antitrust (2001)
Director Peter Howitt ... doesn't bring any perceptible style to the table.
Posted Jan 12, 2001
8
Thomas Carter's direction is flavorless.

Double Take (2001)
The blame for this bomb falls squarely on writer-director George Gallo, who provides suitable urban dialogue for his characters but fails to pen a logical script.
Posted Jan 11, 2001
10
Traffic (2000)
The director's usual superb sense of place ... lends substance and credibility to the proceedings.

Vatel (2000)
The dialogue (polished by Tom Stoppard, no less) strains for a wit it never achieves.
Posted Dec 24, 2000
12
Malena (2000)
Tells a hard and true, though nostalgic, story.
Posted Dec 24, 2000
13
Doesn't have much of an emotional, or even physical center, cursed as it is with a storyline that wanders as aimlessly as its characters.
Posted Dec 24, 2000
14
Some of the banter between the two leads is lightly entertaining, though none of the humor is sharp enough to relate to the tragic setting in any meaningful way.
Posted Dec 22, 2000
15
Donaldson shrewdly resists the faux-documentary clichés of hand-held camerawork and characters who directly address the audience; instead, he allows the impression of reality to flow organically from the performers and situations.
Posted Dec 22, 2000
16
A competent, highly functional heart-warmer.
Posted Dec 22, 2000
17
Cast Away (2000)
On those rare occasions when Hollywood tries, it can still produce great films.
Posted Dec 22, 2000
18
Has some very funny moments but doesn't hit the mark, largely because its notions of Hollywood seem either dated or false.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
19
A loose, sloppy affair that feels like it was written in one day before lunch.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
20
It's time for a career makeover for Bullock, who keeps squandering her girl-next-door likeability on trivial projects like this one.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
21
A real contempt hovers just below Ratner's superficially sympathetic presentation of suburban family life.
Posted Dec 21, 2000
22
Predictable jokes can be funny, but Dude has a habit of repeating them over and over until the humor has been bled dry.
Posted Dec 18, 2000
23
Pollock (2000)
It's a well-told, well-mounted movie, though not one that challenges the standard diagnosis of the creative personality.
Posted Dec 15, 2000
24
Chocolat (2000)
The picture feels awfully forced and stingy in its pleasures.
Posted Dec 15, 2000
25
26
A broad, disjointed farce that should alienate both genders equally.
Posted Dec 14, 2000
27
28
An excessive reliance on digital imagery undermines the impact of this linear action film.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
29
Crouching Tiger is a fine introduction to the genre for newcomers, though specialists might find it thin in comparison to the real thing.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
30
An insult, whether you're familiar with the game or not.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
31
Beloved (1998)
This is a good, if not great, film!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
Held Up (2000)
33
The performances distanced and uncharismatic.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

35
Life (1999)
Hilarious!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
Red Planet (2000)
Most successful is a rogue navigational robot named AMEE, who gives a performance far more nuanced than any of the carbon-based performers.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

8/10
38
The story has been so abbreviated and riddled with songs that there's no sense of climax.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
Little Nicky (2000)
A motley collection of mistimed gags.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
The young actors playing Frank at various ages (Joe Breen, Ciaran Owens, Michael Legge) are all excellent.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
Warm, thoughtful entertainment.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
A trashy-but-fun film in the spirit of last year's Wild Things.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
Christian Bale is impressively impersonal.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44
The only thing you won't see through the sparkling smiles of the fresh-faced, beautiful cast is an original thought or message.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
45
Schlesinger, a filmmaker of broad strokes, can't bring off the difficult transition from bantering comedy to tear-jerking melodrama.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
46
Running Free (2000)
47
Disjointed, uneven, unfocused, and hazy!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48
Chill Factor (1999)
Ulrich and Gooding just don't click as comic antagonists / buddies.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
49
Charming as it is, the film is too thin to justify carfare and ticket money.
