Arlington Road, although erring with a bit of didacticism, is more than a little chilling.

Joan Cusack consistently steals the movie's heat and light!

Bounce (2000)
An entirely predictable, altogether bland addition to the resume of filmmaker Don Roos.

4
An unpretentious, underhyped treat.

5
An inspirational, pleasantly diverting but markedly familiar family movie.

This is a movie that knows its audience.

Great fun.

Boasts comic punch.

Center Stage (2000)
Unless you really have an affection for dance, you'll likely find yourself easily distracted during the soap-operatic nature of the petty infighting between students, their parents and mentors.

The Haunting (1999)
Most of the blame for this butchery goes to De Bont, who shows less interest in relating a simple haunted-house story than in engineering a theme-park ride of pure overkill.

The four men offer some laugh-out-loud observations.

This puffed-up project begins to deflate after about 10 minutes.

13
Bowfinger (1999)
With Murphy at the top of his game, we can largely ignore the periodic dips in Martin's otherwise entertaining script.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14
Jolie here emerges as a bland, practically sexless ingenue.

Snow Day (2000)
16
My Dog Skip (2000)
A pleasant, entertaining yarn.

17
Mumford (1999)
Veteran writer-director Lawrence Kasdan knows his film history.

4/5
It's a nerve-splitting assault on our senses and sensibilities, one that's limited only by the self-imposed restrictions of its chosen format, never the talent of its creators.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
Well-acted and well-assembled.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

In taking cheap shots at those of us who don't live in Manhattan, Williams and company undermine the real strengths of their movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
Nurse Betty (2000)
Nurse Betty doesn't have the narrative credibility of the average soap.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Dinosaur (2000)
Groundbreaking!
Posted Jan 1, 2000

You can almost feel yourself being drawn in, tricked and tossed out of every plot device. It's flawed, but gosh it's fun.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
Ephron and Resnick seem to have lost their way home, allowing the story to unfold rather aimlessly after a reasonably sound set-up.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
Gossip (1999)
A rather overstated, illogical Generation Y thriller.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
Hardly a landmark in the annals of pigskin cinema. But for sports fans seeking relief from a lackluster summer of baseball, even this sloppy exercise can evoke a needed chuckle or two.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27
X-Men (2000)
It's a realm worth visiting.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
The Crew (2000)
Basically a TV movie-of-the-week that's been dressed up with big names.

Next Friday (2000)
An altered state on the part of a viewer is about the only way for this film to be considered the laugh riot of the year.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
Routine and predictable.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
Suffers from a somewhat scattershot plot and a markedly uneven tone that may render it too frightening for the pre-kindergarten set yet too bland for older audiences.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
33
Rupert Everett is right on target as the sneering, scowling Scolex!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
Woman on Top (2000)
Torres often strains to match the kookiness and kink that come so naturally to Almodóvar and his ilk.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

4/5
36
The Watcher (2000)
Perhaps because of his shaggy-slacker demeanor, Reeves inspires another reaction altogether: snickering.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37
Dogma (1999)
38
As if we hadn't suffered enough at the hands of last winter's (forgotten but not forgiven) End of Days, here comes Bless the Child.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
Stepmom (1998)
The movie's patronizing smugness, an often ham-handed script credited to five different screenwriters and at least one major performance that's not quite in sync, seem to hamper all the good intentions.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Love Stinks (1999)
Witless romantic comedy with hooks and lines that are all stinkers.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
Dick (1999)
A mean little motion picture. Count me in!
