The Incredible Hulk Unremarkable Comic Book Fare

Summer action movies are often nothing more than mindless explosions and special effects. Occasionally these popcorn flicks offer something a little deeper. With The Incredible Hulk, clearly the filmmakers are reaching for the latter... with mixed results.

Lee Strobel: Casing for the Faith

Atheist-turned-author Lee Strobel hopes to help Christians communicate their beliefs to others by using his new DVD, The Case for Faith: The Film, which distills the teaching from his best-selling book into a 79-minute visual format.

Ford Still Has the Indy Flair in Crystal Skull

It’s been 19 years since we’ve last seen Indiana Jones. And in the fourth installment of the popular film franchise, Harrison Ford actually seems rather inspired when he grabs his bullwhip and dons that legendary fedora.

Kids Can Learn a Lot from Pirates Who Don't Do Anything

What’s a compelling way to convey to kids that they are children of a soon-returning king and potential heroes despite their fear and weakness? Try taking them to see VeggieTales’ latest, The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan Is Good Advice

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan isn’t merely the name of Adam Sandler’s new comedy; it’s also good advice. If you were to try and take this movie on—one predicated on sexual jokes, ethnic stereotypes and ludicrous sight-gags—it would simply beat you down.

Gory Happening Doesn’t Make a Twitch of Sense

Not only are there no tidy (or even quasi-rational) answers to why people are spontaneously killing themselves in M. Night Shyamalan’s latest, but the movie actually gets more confusing—and eye-roll inducing—as the minutes tick on by.

Better Luck Next Time for Iron Man

During a preview screening, squeals upon the first full look at Iron Man were a resounding signal as to what the audience had come to see—not Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. No, this man of steel—"titanium alloy" Stark specifies—is the star of the show.

More Manolos and Meaninglessness in Sex and the City

In the midst of the meaninglessness, a movie like Sex and the City does manage to offer a powerful reminder. It demonstrates, yet again, how utterly pointless life is—and how difficult relationships are—without a greater purpose for living.

Zellweger, Clooney Make an Affable Team in Leatherheads

Taking its cues from fast-talking screwball comedies of years past, Leatherheads is a sports-themed battle of the sexes that largely succeeds because of the chemistry of its leads—George Clooney and Renée Zellweger.

Senior Citizens Still Rock in Young @ Heart

You’ve probably seen this band before. No, it’s not the Ramones—although they do a rousing chorus of “I Want to Be Sedated.” They’re the “Young @ Heart” chorus—a group of septa- and octogenarians who perform rock tunes.

Speed Racer Has Low Impact Despite Spectacular Effects

Directed by the Wachowski brothers—the duo behind the Matrix trilogy—Speed Racer is another visual wonder, but it’s doubtful its impact on future films will come anywhere close to that of the Matrix films.

Made of Honor Glamorizes Sex without Commitment

Made of Honor is basically the equivalent of 1997’s My Best Friend’s Wedding. But instead of Julia Roberts doing all the scheming, we’ve got Patrick Dempsey as the single guy who doesn’t realize what he’s got until it’s (almost) gone.

The Love Guru Falls Far Short of Enlightenment

Be warned: The Love Guru is far worse than you think. In fact, the only “comedy” that slightly edges it out in terms of truly lowbrow, adolescent boy humor was the recent barely-seen stoner flick, Strange Wilderness.

Somber Snow Angels Struggles with Tone

While director David Gordon Green’s Snow Angels raises interesting questions about the nature of Christian faith and belief, the film is ultimately too grim, not to mention too explicit in its violence and implied teen sexuality.

88 Minutes Stops Short of Satisfaction

88 Minutes doesn’t offer much to recommend. Like the Diane Lane thriller Untraceable from earlier this year, it’s a mediocre, at times distasteful thriller that isn’t its lead actor’s finest hour. But like that film, the presence of the star makes the film better than it might have been otherwise.

Big Laughs but Troubling Morality in Baby Mama

Former Saturday Night Live star and screenwriter (of Mean Girls) Tina Fey has perfected the role of a successful working woman who longs for a baby in her role as Liz Lemon on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock. Now Fey finds similar success with Baby Mama.

What Happens in Vegas Should've Stayed in Vegas

With a threadbare plot straight out of a sitcom, What Happens in Vegas is not only the worst commercial for Sin City in a while, but the comedy is so insipid and low-brow you would’ve thought the script was penned by a junior-high boy.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for Finding True Love

As a romance, the main message is that finding love is what matters most in life. It’s a “chick flick,” to be sure, but one that will be appreciated by that audience—especially those of a certain age.

Faith Plays a Part in The Life Before Her Eyes

The Life Before Her Eyes suggests potent themes, but settles for a surface resolution that feels like a gimmick. In the end, it is reduced to a third-rate M. Night Shyamalan twist rather than rising to the largely unexplored Bergman-esque spiritual drama at its core.
