If nothing else, What Lies Beneath is a fine showcase for Pfeiffer.

Sun Tzu said, 'Be subtle! Be subtle! And use your spies for every kind of business!' And 'ponder and deliberate before you make a move.' Alas, Sun Tzu didn't have script approval on this mess.

Duets (2000)
Watching Duets, you sense the small-screen calculations in John Byrum's script.

This movie is a blunt object -- blunt, but not particularly effective.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
6
Scary Movie (2000)
Now that's funny.

7
American Pie (1999)
A sloppy mess!

Any parent who sits through the cartoon short featuring the nonverbal cuddly Pikachu that begins this movie deserves a purple heart.

The Insider (1999)
Genuinely moving.

Lighter and less compelling than Altman's best efforts, the new one produces a low-level, but still enjoyable, buzz.

Gladiator (2000)
12
Despite my reservations about Spacey's performance, the film is generally very well acted.

Seems to have been made by people with nothing in particular to prove.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
15
Loser (2000)
Funny cameos by Andy Dick, David Spade, Steven Wright, Andrea Martin, Colleen Camp and, as Paul's dad, Dan Aykroyd.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
Play It to the Bone is wildly uneven, but the good parts outweigh the bad.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17
Even though the animation is still sharp, the writing is flat.

My baseline for boredom had been standing in line to renew my automobile registration. But now, thanks to this Pokemon film, I have a brand-new baseline.

Joan Cusack practically steals the show!

Next Friday (2000)
Cube walks through this picture in an unconnected, unfunny daze, torching what is obviously a great talent in pursuit of cheap laughs and big box office.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
Although the current production runs three hours, I wasn't really bored at any point.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Almost everyone here seems at least a little cartoonlike.

23
The Patriot (2000)

Emmerich choreographs the action with breathtaking precision.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
The Haunting (1999)
Shockingly short on suggestiveness and restraint.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
Bowfinger (1999)
What Murphy is doing here, in fact, is so focused and inventive, I don't quite know what to call it. Comedy nouveau, perhaps?
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
Snow Day (2000)
Kid comedy's light, fluffy, not very deep.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27
Although the material is utterly conventional, the film does have a lot going for it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
[McG] is in way over his head.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29
Saving Grace (2000)
The cast has a lot of charm.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

The Road to El Dorado is boderline entertaining.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
True to the smart-and-zany, shamelessly punning spirit of Jay Ward's hilarious characters.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

4/5
33
Lost Souls (2000)
Kaminski and Gardner spend so much time dealing with Good and Evil that they seem to forget all about the far more important distinction between Good and Lousy.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
My Dog Skip (2000)
Taps into just enough of that connection between humans and dogs to make even jaded cat-lovers a little moist in the eyes.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35
[Li] shows no screen presence here.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
Nurse Betty (2000)
Its premise, I'll admit, is a lot to ask moviegoers to swallow. But if you can go along with its tall-tale spirit, you can't help but be amazed at how ingeniously the filmmakers work out the ramifications of Betty's delusion.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37
It isn't a very good movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38
Not even the reassuring familiarity of the Waters stock company (including Mink Stole, Ricki Lake and, pointedly in this case, Patty Hearst) is enough to fully redeem this effort.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
The Watcher (2000)
Has 'direct to video' stamped all over it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
This oddly heavy-spirited movie version is clearly two sizes too big.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
The Skulls (2000)
The Skulls could have been called The Numbskulls.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
It may be the clearest and most accurate cinematic expression of what it means to be black and American in the first year of the new millennium.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
Hanging Up (2000)
The final scene shows the sisters laughing together, preparing a Thanksgiving feast and playfully throwing flour at each other. I felt like throwing something too, but I didn't have any tomatoes.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Mickey Blue Eyes has a lot to recommend it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
45
Watching Where the Heart Is, in fact, is a little like listening to the town gossip run her mouth about everyone she knows.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
46
Reindeer Games is the sort of movie in which nothing is quite what it seems.

Gizmos and villains are delightful!

You don't have to be a conservative to feel pushed around by Lurie. All you have to be is a moviegoer who wants a little room to think for him- or herself.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

After the melodrama kicks in, the film turns disastrously sappy.
