A Faulty Sense of Empowerment Fuels The Women

If it wasn’t for the success of the recent Sex and the City on the big screen, chances are The Women, a remake of the 1939 classic that’s been in the works for over a decade, probably wouldn’t be playing at a theater near you as we speak.

Mamma Mia! Makes Lively ABBA Tunes Seem Dull

Before watching the screen version of Mamma Mia!, I couldn’t imagine any way to make the music from ABBA seem boring. Yet suffering through Meryl Streep’s and Pierce Brosnan’s failed attempts to deliver these upbeat standards has changed my mind.

Aimless Mummy 3 Never Comes to Life

For the Mummy series, the third time offers no charm. Neither darkly compelling nor thoughtfully entertaining, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is an also-ran.

Petit’s Mission Accomplished in Man on Wire

Man on Wire is a fascinating documentary sure to interest anyone who enjoys heist movies and thrillers. Director James Marsh skillfully mixes archival news footage with personal videos, along with some situations that were recreated for the film.

Children's Favorite Adapted in Horton Hears a Who

Based on the charming Dr. Seuss book from 1954, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! is a fun movie for all ages. The animation feels just like the book, and the screenwriting (with all of those in-between lines and side stories) is clever.

Prince Caspian Is the Narnia We've Been Waiting For

In every way that The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tried but failed, Prince Caspian succeeds. What was originally slavish adherence to the source has now become inspired filmmaking—a major step forward that represents the Narnia for which we’ve waited.

X-Files May Work for Fans, but not Newcomers

The sight of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson assuming well worn roles will be enough for true fans of the series. But those who are new to the franchise may find themselves wondering whatever drew people to The X-Files to begin with.

Absurd Wanted Attempts to Mimic Better Films

To say Wanted is far-fetched, would be the understatement of the year. Much of the film rips off much better action movies like The Matrix and Batman Begins—two films that are infinitely more plausible.

More of the Same for Ferrell and Reilly in Step Brothers

If you are a Will Ferrell fan who can overlook the film’s flaws and ignore the non-stop coarseness, there may be some laughs in Step Brothers for you. If not, the trashiness greatly overshadows the funny.

Will Smith Can't Save Hancock

Will Smith’s latest certainly isn’t boring or lacking energy. If anything, it overcompensates. But all the bells and whistles eventually can’t distract from the fact that Hancock completely falls off the rails halfway through.

Space Chimps Isn't Out of This World

In Space Chimps, not only is the low-grade CG on par with most Saturday morning cartoons, but the lack of vitality and movement in the characters themselves stands in the way of any sort of human connection.

There’s Not Much Incentive to Meet Dave

The nicest thing anyone can say about Meet Dave is that thankfully, it’s not as bad as Norbit. Once again, Eddie Murphy tries potentially family-friendly fare and this time ends up not quite a total bomb—but close.

Three Years Later, the Traveling Pants Still Fit

Proving that popular books can be beautifully adapted for the big screen, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 has all the verve and spunk of the original as the four friends are now wrestling with being college-age girls.

Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy II Not Quite Golden

Fans of Director Guillermo del Toro’s other films will detect a certain sameness to some of the creatures shown in Hellboy II. It also lags a little with special effects taking prominence over story and character development.

Kids and Adults Will Get a Kick Out of Kung Fu Panda

Pursuing your dreams—no matter how big or small—has been a time-honored theme in many a kid’s movie. And the new Jack Black vehicle, Kung Fu Panda, doesn’t stray too far from form.

Get Smart a Truly Hilarious Spy-Spoof Update

Surprisingly, the filmmakers set themselves apart from the typical 1970s “television to film” retread by creating a truly hilarious film, one that updates the spy spoof without the typical comedic contempt.

It's a Bumpy Journey to the Center of the Earth

Films that appeal to the family are so rare that whenever one comes along that doesn’t impress as much as it should, it’s tough to break the news. Walden Media's Journey to the Center of the Earth is such a film.
