3.5/5
The result is the best slice of Pie yet: a savvy sequel that's flat-out hilarious raunchy fun.

3.5/5
The way Jacobsen tilts the scales between laughing at normality and laughing at perceived abnormality makes this a comedy feel like it's in a universal language.

Bully (2012)
Graceful cinematography captures the loneliness and isolation of these kids with understatement, even when the director succumbs to twinkling piano that pulls a tad too hard on the heartstrings.

I Wish (2012)
A coming of age story in which the children better the world for the adults, Kore-Eda's heart is in the right place.

4/5
Already buoyed by festival buzz, it's sure to be received with enthusiasm by genre devotees, and word of mouth has the potential to turn it into a bona fide box office sleeper.

Bernie (2012)
Bernie is poised to be a tough sell for Millennium Entertainment, its mild star power likely incapable of offsetting a garish premise and mixed reviews.

As action, as allegory, as cinema, The Hunger Games is the best American science-fiction film since The Matrix.

John Carter (2012)
It's got the schmaltz and grandeur of the 80s Clash of the Titans but little of the warm wonder that made that spectacle such an addiction.

Jonah Hill is masterful at delivering an absurd story with so much sweetness, the nonsense ceases to get in the way.

It should draw upscale adult audiences looking for a sophisticated romp to rescue them from the spring cinema doldrums.

A shrewdly understated satire of feel-good dramas disguised as gross-out inside jokes, Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie should alternately leave some viewers in stitches while making others quickly leave the theater.

Gone (2012)
With a title that's even more generic than the film's aesthetic, Gone will struggle to draw audiences. By next weekend, it'll be...wait for it... Not there, anymore.

1.5/5
Tyler Perry has finally achieved an odd kind of equality that heretofore eluded him: he's now just as mediocre and middle of the road as any other reliable hitmaker in Hollywood.

Act of Valor (2012)

3/5
Wanderlust (2012)
But while Role Models mined riches even in the well-plowed comedic soil of cretins befriending kids, Wanderlust's equally musty city-vs-country culture clash plot finds only flecks of hilarity in mostly bland-to-bold mediocrity.

Seek this one out though, because it's too unique and too defiantly strange to survive for long in today's Darwinian and consumerist exhibition environment.

But just as the men in this film vacillate between horrible and endearing, you'll find yourself (whether male or female) being lost and won back by the film's charms, chiefly its cast.

Here, Leth makes Worthington's ledge a constantly frightening gimmick and the pacing between scenes is so effective, you'd be on the edge of your seat if the film didn't constantly make you feel for the back of your chair.

Undefeated (2012)
Awards recognition should only boost the coffers of a doc that features echoes of the popular, based-on-a-true-story gridiron movies The Blind Side and Friday Night Lights.

This movie will not find an audience. It's got likable stars, a reliable commercial genre and a decent supporting cast, but nobody will turn out to see it, even if it was a labor of love.

Chico & Rita (2012)
Its failings aside, Chico & Rita is a work of warmth and affection, a colorful evocation of a time and a musical environment redolent of artistic sophistication and the prospects of post-war recovery.

Pina (2011)
Sans 3D, Pina becomes a more unified work of undisputed merits, a passionate, fitting tribute from one of Europe's preeminent filmmakers and documentarians.

The Dish and Spoon poses the possibility that, from a different proximity, the MPG is a volatile beast and far more than the promise of your fantasies can actually tolerate.
