Loser (2000)
Loser's script is frustratingly inconsistent.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2
The Klumps are relegated to the sidelines, gross caricatures meant to distract us from the movie's disjointed, inane plot line.

3
If you truly love Theodor Seuss Geisel and wish to honor his memory, stick with the book and the cartoon.

4
Wonderland (2000)
A lot of offhand wit and wisdom here.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
5
The 6th Day (2000)
An unlikely and entirely welcome blend of humor, action, moral debate, and social satire.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
6
The Insider (1999)
Oscar-worthy.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7
The ludicrous casting of Hoffman is just the fatal bit of kindling on this Joan's fire.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
8
It may have been the perfect storm, but this is the imperfect movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
9
Titus (1999)
The film looks and sounds gorgeous.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
10
Chadha and Berges' script gushes with humanity, but (wipe sweat from brow here) doesn't devolve into excessively sentimental junk.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
11
An uneven, ultimately unsatisfying attempt to transfer the groundbreaking and boomer-beloved 60s TV exploits of Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose to the big screen.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
12
A very good summer movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
13
It's the first Steven Soderbergh film to smack of work for hire.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14
15
A disaster on every level.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
A banal sitcom masquerading as religious deepthink dolled up as boy-meets-goy love story.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17
A very good kids' movie from a grown-up standpoint -- it has a coherent plot, a good pace and well-defined characters, and a funny monster-movie spoof at the finale.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
18
Timecode (2000)
Simply for its technical freshness, Time Code is eminently watchable.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
Gladiator (2000)
20
Almost everything that happens on-screen lacks emotional impact.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
The Patriot (2000)
See this movie, then go home, raise the flag, set off some fireworks, and char some meat.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Hilarity should ensue, but it doesn't.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23
The animators' talents and diligence have been corrupted on every front.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
There will always be Beatles revivals, but we're way overdue for a major Richard Lester revival.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
A fresh, intimate, gloriously unpolished performance film which measures up to the classics of the genre.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
Nurse Betty (2000)
Resonates upon the American condition, deliciously detailing the whimsy, violence, intolerance, and shallow fantasies that fuel this nation. Oh yeah, and it's funny.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27
Dazed and confused.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
A collection of enthusiastic episodes trussed up with tone-deaf padding.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29
[Von Trier's] work starts to feel bloated, self-important, and boring.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
30
Surely there's a way to put such familiar material up on the screen without lapsing into clich├ęs; but Craven doesn't find it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
If The Usual Suspects is all plot, a winding road map on the printed page, then The Way of the Gun takes place between the lines.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
It never quite gets going.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
33
The Tigger Movie seems pretty cheesy.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
Center Stage (2000)
The script, by Carol Heikkinen, contains enough characters and subplots that the movie always feels as if it is going somewhere.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35
To say that Book of Shadows is interesting may be damning with faint praise, but that really is the best word for it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
Bamboozled (2000)
As the movie progresses, it gradually begins to lose focus.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37
Snow Day (2000)
Parents expecting the generally smarter fare of previous Nickelodeon efforts like Harriet the Spy and Rugrats may be disappointed.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38
Hamlet (2000)
Might work if Almereyda were playing it strictly for laughs. But for the most part he's serious, and the result is likely to satisfy no one.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
Adam Resnick's script is flat, failing to provide a sense of escalating tension or much humor, and relying primarily on endless profanity for cheap laughs.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
Ninety percent of this thriller is absolutely terrific; but the 10 percent that fails is so troubling that it threatens to undermine all that is wonderful in the rest.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
Romeo Must Die may not have the best script in the world, but it brings Jet Li to the big screen in a way that all action junkies, not just the video-store geeks, will appreciate.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
A movie so 'scary' it borders on being silly.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
Woman on Top (2000)
Everything might come together, too, were it not for terrible writing, marginal acting, some bewildering lapses of logic, and a fatal smugness.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44
Dinosaur (2000)
Tougher-minded children among us may find it hard to sit, without embarrassment, through this bizarre mixture of paleontology, preposterous anthropomorphism, and fuzzy-headed New Age myth-making.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
45
Soft Fruit (1999)
It has its own oddball virtues.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
46
A few mildly amusing moments, but they can't compensate for the annoying obtuseness of the rest.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
47
It's Portman's film to make or break ... and she's basically a good choice.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48
Bring It On (2000)
The film is infectious, like one of its many original titles, Cheer Fever. It grows on you.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
49
Cecil B. Demented is essential viewing.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

The director ladles on winking ironies and surprise chuckles.
