Slow-Moving Night Listener a Mediocre Effort

I wasn't engaged by the story or its “mystery,” which seemed fairly humdrum, “Law and Order” style. Once you’re over the disturbing sexual content and, of course, the phallic humor so ubiquitous in homosexual-themed films, it’s still a very mediocre effort.

Tricky Illusionist Plays With Our Expectations

Not all it could be, but it has one big trick up its sleeve — and it’s a doozy. Is it magic, manipulation, or a little of both? If it’s judged to be the former, the film will prove rewarding; if the latter, the film will feel like a cheat.

Wicker Man Thriller Not So Thrilling

This film’s poster shows a little girl with demonic eyes superimposed on a decomposing headshot of Nicolas Cage, made to look as if his face is being eaten by honey. This, like the trailer, tells us we’re going to watch a horror movie. Instead, it’s more of a thriller. But oh, how I wish I could say that I was thrilled.

Invincible Triumphs Over Usual Sports Movie Clichés

Before one assumes that Invincible follows all the sports movie cliches, it doesn't. Instead, the movie is the true story of the rather unlikely NFL career of Vince Papale.

Lady in the Water Not a Typical Shyamalan Splash

Although not quite on par with some of M. Night Shyamalan's earlier work, Lady in the Water is the only one of this director's films that might be appropriate for older children. Not a rigorous workout, it's a nice dip during the arid summer moviegoing season.

Talented Cast Makes Little Miss Sunshine Glow

Much about this independent film is formulaic and clichéd. But brilliant acting by a colorful cast has deservedly won the film high marks from critics.

Despite a Few Distractions, Narnia Wows

Although The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe doesn’t meet the standard of an epic film, it is certainly enjoyable to watch and largely true to original story. Hats off to the film's producers who have shown a movie with Christian themes can reach a high standard of technical and narrative excellence.

Obsession with Meaningless Satirized in The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada gives the 99 percent of us regular folks a humorous, insightful, satirical glimpse into the world of those obsessed by and enslaved to the colossal business of high fashion.

Talladega Nights Takes the Lowbrow Course

Ultimately kind to its simpleminded characters, and all demographics represented. Unfortunately, the movie has decided that you can’t be funny without also being over-the-top vulgar. Too bad, since Talladega could have been one of 2006’s funniest.

Pirates 2 - Dead Man's Chest Contains a Few Jewels

Open up Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, and what do you find? A few pearls of laughter and some gem performances amid the rot of a second film in a planned trilogy that goes on much too long, then makes no effort to provide a satisfying ending.

How to Eat Fried Worms is a Questionable Concoction

How to Eat Fried Worms is not a cinematic delicacy by any means, but neither is it difficult to digest. Like a decent fast-food meal, it’s bound to please kids but leave adults thinking about their next entrée.

Miami Vice Brings Nothing New to the Cop Movie Genre

There is no lack of "spoof-worthy" material in television's Miami Vice. The show's '80s outfits and décor are generally remembered by most with a chuckle. Yet director Michael Mann, who was involved in the creation of the original, has taken his new film in exactly the opposite direction.
