2.5/4
Pumpkin (2002)
The results are perversely watchable, as much for the movie's evasions as the controversial issues with which it toys. Often, it just seems carelessly smug.

Smart, serious and deftly composed.

2.5/4
Instead of the fresh comic concept of the 1996 blockbuster, we have a calculated piece of product: a lightweight, occasionally laboured copycat skewed to a younger children's demographic to move the action figures and video sales.

3/4
At a time when half the so-called real movies are little more than live-action cartoons, it's refreshing to see a cartoon that knows what it is, and knows the form's history.

Hey Arnold! is now stretched to barely feature length, with a little more attention paid to the animation. Still, the updated Dickensian sensibility of writer Craig Bartlett's story is appealing.

Mr. Deeds (2002)

3/4
A new variation on the Disney animated flick, one that reflects less a corporate formula than a particular animator's iconoclastic taste.

Big Bad Love (2001)
The movie is obviously a labour of love so Howard appears to have had free rein to be as pretentious as he wanted.

Cherish (2002)
One of those American independent comedies that suffers from a serious case of the lonely-girl cutes.

Juwanna Mann (2002)

3/4
As an entertainment, the movie keeps you diverted and best of all, it lightens your wallet without leaving a sting.

Scooby-Doo (2002)
A frenetic, cluttered $100-million worth of haphazard plotting, fart jokes, computer-generated monsters and visual chaos.

Liman adds some brash, and occasionally subtle, touches to the spy-on-the-run formula, without ever quite managing to transcend the cliches.

Bad Company (2002)
Though it has some pop and plenty of corn, Bad Company is one of those wise-cracking, buddy-pic, ticking-nuke-bomb kind of summer action comedies that makes you feel hungry for less.

Blatant promotion aside, the chronicles of Dogtown make for fascinating insider cultural history.

Enigma (2002)
The combined talents of Apted, Stoppard and the stellar cast make Enigma a puzzle worth solving.

Cedar takes a very open-minded approach to this sensitive material, showing impressive control, both visually and in the writing.

A mildly enjoyable if toothless adaptation of a much better book.

A film that's lovely to hear, though not much to look at.

2.5/4
A live-action version that's as funny and savvy as the original, even if one leaves the theatre exhausted by its barrage of pop-culture references, and perhaps disappointed by its softness as satire.

Baran (2002)
Though the pathos of this fable-like love story feels overcalculated, Majidi succeeds in playing the classical Dickensian balance, with the sentimental hook justified by the social sweep of the narrative.
