“Four Brothers” is meant to leave the audience with a sense of “justice wins” or a “brothers who stick together can do anything” uplifting sort of feeling when it is over. But instead, this particular reviewer (who really likes action films) walked away from the theater feeling only jangled and uncomfortable.

This is a great movie for parents to see with their kids because both sides will be reminded about what it takes to walk in the other person's shoes for a while. Lindsay Lohan does an impressive job of trying to act mature beyond her years and Jamie Lee Curtis' character had to be the most fun to play in her career.

When I watched Nicole Kidman's Oscar-winning turn in The Hours back in 2002, I'd officially witnessed the most vacant, depressing and seemingly never-ending flick for which I ever shelled out eight bucks. Now, minus the money spent for admission, I've seen a movie that doesn't rank far behind.

This isn't a musical that's as "hip" as "Grease" or as "cool" as the old beach party movies from the '60s but then again, this isn't your typical musical. This movie is really a perfect example of a new era of Hollywood capitalism and a brilliant marketing strategy.

A fascinating moment in history comes to life in Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon, an adaptation of Peter Morgan's stage play. Starring Frank Langella as Richard Nixon and Michael Sheen as interviewer David Frost, the film stands out as a retelling of a landmark TV interview.

With its scattershot approach, "Fun With Dick and Jane," Jim Carrey’s latest comedy, yields uneven and disappointing results. Surprisingly unfunny at times, the film is, at its best, mildly amusing, but its own sense of moral righteousness comes across as mean-spirited.
