Three Kings (1999)
It's gutsy stuff, disturbing but funny and strangely captivating.

Many critics have called Ripley one of the year's best movies, and with good reason.

3
Down to You (2000)
Down to You is bad. Real bad.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4
Even though director Peter Kassovitz tries hard to reproduce the soul-chilling despair of the ghetto, truth eludes Jakob The Liar.

5
McGregor's character is so devoid of interest, it makes one long for the redeeming charm of Jar Jar Binks.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
6
The heist sequence is an almost mellow affair, and the sexual content is likewise unlikely to induce any heart attacks among Newman's age demographic.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7
The richest comedy is in the details and in throwaway bits of dialogue.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
8
A smarter-than -usual action movie.

9
Utilizing state-of-the-art methods in the science of statistics, I have determined there will be virtually no audience for The Replacements.

10
Frequency (2000)
Its own fancifully melodramatic way, Frequency's appeal as a unique little thriller doesn't get lost in the static.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
11
This version of Anna and the King plays it entirely too safe.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
12
[The stars] are navel-gazing bores.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
13
The Bachelor (1999)
The Bachelor is just as dismal a failure -- the anti-date movie of the year.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14
28 Days (2000)
Bullock also covers herself with gratuitous comedy and predictable drama to prevent audiences from seeing the naked truth of addiction.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
15
At its core Any Given Sunday is just another trite, win - one - for - the - Gipper paean to the gridiron.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
Forman ends it all with a hint that Kaufman may still be with us, a narrative cop-out akin to the it-was- all- a-dream denouement. If he is alive, Andy Kaufman may be the only one in the theatre laughing.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17
For all the film's 95-minute length, the content is less substantial than 44 minutes of X-Files.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
18
Beautiful (2000)
The movie's heroine is so tiresome, you can feel her projected image draining your life away.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
Nichols' film is distinctive from his other sex comedies in that it aims lower than the brain.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20
Supernova (2000)
Supernova meekly goes where other sci-fi flicks, such as Alien, have gone before.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
Ultimately, The Flintstones leaves one as cold as marble.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Pitch Black (2000)
If Pitch Black is a likable sci-fi thriller, it's because it has the heart of a cheeseball '70s disaster movie beneath the horror trappings of computer-generated mutant bats and winged demon aliens.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23
Peet emerges as one of the most delightful female characters in the film.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
Hang on to your wallets, mom and dad.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
Director Steve Soderbergh wisely emphasizes Erin's personal growth over the crusade.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
A disservice to those soldiers it would celebrate.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
27
[Danny DeVito] has never been better than he is here.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28
The film fleshes out the jokey premise with rather elaborate character development.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29
Very entertaining.

Hanging Up (2000)
It's particularly disappointing that Keaton demonstrates little of the quirky sensibility of her previous works, either as a director or an actress.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
Though boasting four of the best black comics in the biz, this film by Spike Lee is not going to dethrone Richard Pryor Live as the funniest comedy concert film ever.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
Nurse Betty (2000)
It's Zellweger's movie, and her charm proves to be just the right prescription to balance LaBute's astringent style.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
33
Bringing the cartoon characters into the real world requires a wild imagination. Credit scriptwriter Kenneth Lonergan for having it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
Gossip (1999)
Gossip is just unbelievable.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35
Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel apparently couldn't resist dressing the movie up like a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake with lots of precious, cutesy comic touches.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
Admirably performed.
