    This is an egotistical endeavor from the daughter of horror director Dario Argento (a producer here), but her raw performance and utter fearlessness make it strangely magnetic.

    The central narrative is ultimately too one-dimensional to sustain interest.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.

    Although deft editing provides neat segues, "Safety" suffers from a case of too many dramas, too little time. Characters are given no chance to develop and, too often, their behavior turns on a dime, hurtling off into a parallel universe of extreme acts.

    A leisurely, scene-setting start, peppered with authentic banter and winning localized humor, fleshes out the characters in Manito so well you feel as if you live alongside them.

    Can that achingly abstract thing called love be captured in a beaker or dissected like a frog splayed on a slab? That's the belabored premise of this dorky, clinically structured romance cooked up in the Sundance Institute's screenwriter and filmmaker labs.

    Uber-hip technique triumphs over substance in Reconstruction.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Harmless, if slightly hyperactive, fun.

    Often so silly, it's surreal.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Only really little tykes will find the surplus of pratfalls and poo and fart jokes a hoot.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    In place of elaborate sets, clever filmmaking gives the impression of a central London emptied of people and cars, to eerie effect - and this opening reel is nothing short of magnificent.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A good-looking, if imperfectly plotted, coming-of-age feature -- that doesn't quite manage to sidestep the clichéd sport-as-metaphor-for-life trap.

    Simultaneously funny and frightening, Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 satirical masterpiece. [25 Apr 2004, p.3]

    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    At once, a joyful celebration of female friendship and an unusually honest look at newly responsible young women wistfully saying goodbye to the dreams of their youth.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Any one episode of "The Sopranos" would send this ill-conceived folly to sleep with the fishes.
    • 82 Metascore

    Kosashvili's clear-eyed approach to the cultural tradition of arranged marriage balances respect and scorn, and he reconciles the comedy and tragedy inherent in Zaza's tug-of-love with finesse.

    Ryan spends much of the grubby-looking boxing drama Against the Ropes with her face screwed up in distaste, as if a dirty sock is being waved under her nose. Perhaps it's because the movie she's in stinks.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 12 Megan Lehmann
    Kicks off as a cheap piece of retro schlock and quickly devolves into a putrid bloodbath with a thin narrative made utterly indecipherable by the first-time director's clueless approach to filmmaking.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It's mostly a political thriller, contingent on a love story. It's kind of noirish, subtly humorous and intermittently confusing.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Megan Lehmann
    There's little action in this snail-paced bore, you'll need a high-powered magnifying glass to spot the comedy and the "buddies" have about as much chemistry as a pair of wet socks.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It's a chaste "Austin Powers," a less ridiculous "Casino Royale," a more subtle "Spy Hard" — in other words, yet another James Bond parody.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Some solid performances and pretty scenery don't do much to conceal that there's a whole heap of nothing at the core of this slight coming-of-age/coming-out tale.

    Elf
    Ferrell's manic, overgrown-kid energy sweeps all before it, announcing him - after his standout turn in "Old School" - as a major leading-man talent who can charm as well as amuse.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    This slow-moving Swedish film offers not even a hint of joy, preferring to focus on the humiliation of Martin as he defecates in bed and urinates on the plants at his own birthday party.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A weird hybrid of cloning thriller and futuristic love story, with hints of "The Godfather" and "Ice Castles" - and it wears its disjointed nature like a badge of honor.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 12 Megan Lehmann
    A confusing mishmash.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It actually works as a sometimes funny, occasionally scandalous, but mostly involving narrative.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    One of the year's most engaging films.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    It's a simple-minded celebration of speed that pretends to be nothing else, even throwing in the occasional wink to acknowledge its own silliness.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 12 Megan Lehmann
    Unfathomable balderdash.
