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.

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.

Formulaic Prom Night Provides More Laughs Than Terror

If you’re squeamish about blood, there’s little to worry about there in Prom Night, a remake of the campy 1980 horror flick by the same name. For anyone who has actually seen the original, there’s surprisingly little resemblance.

You Wouldn’t Think Smart People Could Be So Dumb

With the success of quirky, independent comedies like Little Miss Sunshine and Juno, expect to see more movies like Smart People. Unfortunately, it doesn’t hold a candle to either of these recent screen gems.

No Clear Answers Found in The Counterfeiters

Based on Adolf Burger’s wartime memoir, The Devil’s Workshop, The Counterfeiters wisely keeps its focus on the far more nuanced character of Salomon “Sally” Sorowitsch—an unlikely protagonist who insists that to survive, you must adapt.

A Hero Lies within on Nim’s Island

Likely targeting kids five through twelve, the latest Walden Media film is a family-friendly, take-me-away adventure with a good message about finding heroism from within.

Surfwise Looks at the “First Family of Surfing”

Directed by Doug Pray, Surfwise is a bizarre and shocking, yet strangely fascinating documentary, about a narcissistic, controlling and charismatic man and the ongoing effects on his large family, dubbed “the first family of surfing.”

Effective 21 a Cautionary Tale of Greed, Gambling

Winning big isn’t that easy, unless you happen to be a math whiz with a knack for counting cards. Based on the true story of MIT students who actually managed to beat the Vegas system, 21 is a slickly crafted cautionary tale of greed and gambling.

It's a Waste of Time to Meet Bill

Meet Bill appears to be somewhat aimed at kids, but its content makes it only appropriate for adults. For those and many other reasons, it should have simply been left in pre-production purgatory. In other words, don’t meet Bill.

Another Heist Movie, Another Bank Job

Loosely based on the 1971 bank robbery at Lloyd's Bank in Marylebone, London, The Bank Job is directed by Australian Roger Donaldson. It's a heist movie, pure and simple, with some throwbacks to the '70s.

College Road Trip Well Worth the Ride

It is a rare and beautiful thing when a movie can truly capture the imagination of audiences ages three to seventy-three, but Disney’s new College Road Trip manages to do just that.

Charming Actors Save Penelope by a Nose

What ultimately lifts Penelope from been-there-seen-that, “believing in yourself” status are the charming performances from leads Christina Ricci, James McAvoy—and even Penelope’s hideously superficial mother, played by Catherine O’Hara.

Disappointing Stop-Loss the Latest Iraq War Drama

Stop-Loss, the latest in a growing line of disappointing dramas about the Iraq war, centers around the flight of an AWOL soldier. On the day he thinks he’s returning full-time to civilian life, he’s told instead to head back to Iraq.
