While The Rite’s conclusion is somewhat gratifying, the supernatural thriller botches enough spiritual points along the way to make one wonder about its intentions.

Costner Enlivens Routine Company Men

Writer/Director John Wells tackles economic downturn head-on in The Company Men, a well-performed but curiously unaffecting tale of corporate callousness and career retrenchment.

Sex Without Consequences in No Strings Attached

Playing out like When Harry Met Sally in reverse, No Strings Attached examines modern sexual mores by posing the following question: Can men and women just sleep together on a regular basis without the pesky inconvenience of falling in love getting in the way?

Green Hornet Shakes Up the Superhero Genre

The Green Hornet is like the goofy twin to The Dark Knight. Both have billionaire protagonists who don masks, drive cool cars, and are in the pursuit of justice—except one is the brooding Christian Bale while the other is the guy from Knocked Up.

 
Comedy or Not a Comedy? That's The Dilemma

Beyond the buddy-comedy dynamic of Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, The Dilemma is a rather serious story about romantic commitment, and the harsh realities of a crumbling marriage where intimacy between husband and wife is a fading memory.

Clichés Hamper Country Strong

If the movie industry thinks Country Strong is going to resonate with the same sizable audience that turned out for The Blind Side in 2009, it needs to think again.

Alejandro Gonzales Innaritu's film starring Javier Bardem is a dark film about mortality and the struggle to exist in a harsh world.

Don't Bother Booking a Trip for Gulliver's Travels

Based very loosely on the classic novel, Gulliver's Travels borrows from Jack Black's rather limited supply of potty humor shenanigans and hopes that'll suffice.

The King's Speech is Quietly Triumphant

In The King's Speech, there’s far more than meets the eye in this multi-layered story of a man who's reluctant to become King because of a humiliating speech impediment.

Grief Movingly Portrayed in Rabbit Hole

Not only is it an honest portrayal of how people respond to grief so differently, but it also serves as an important reminder that pat answers aren't always the best medicine.

True Grit Has Plenty of Fighting Spirit

Thanks to a whip-smart script by those ever-inventive Coen brothers, True Grit has plenty of substance and style, a formidable combination for any film, let alone a remake.

Little Fockers Wallows in Below-the-Belt Humor

The third—and, let's hope, final—chapter in the series about Greg and Pam Focker fails to bring on the humor with one of the lowest laughs-to-attempted-jokes ratios in recent memory.

Something of Substance Revealed in Somewhere

Sofia Coppola's Somewhere takes a long time to get anywhere. But don't be surprised if, weeks later, you find yourself thinking about the film and its depiction of a wayward soul.

The Fighter Doesn't Deliver a Knockout Punch

The cobbled-together story is weighed down by far too much family drama and not enough of the protagonist's journey against the ropes. Good, but not great.

No Question, How Do You Know Disappoints

Rom-coms of the past few years have been particularly stale, as if all churned out by the same studio assembly line. How Do You Know is no different, as indistinguishable as them all.

 
Yogi Bear Isn't Smarter Than Your Average Movie

Yogi Bear is anything but a pic-a-nic to sit through. In fact, while Yogi has always proclaimed he's "smarter than the average bear," the same doesn't exactly apply to the film's screenplay.

TRON: Legacy Takes Itself Too Seriously

TRON: Legacy brings back Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn. However, the new film is dreary enough to make one wonder why so much effort was put into revisiting this virtual world in the first place.

After the megahit The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, it's safe to say that The Voyage of the Dawn Treader should recover any fans who didn't respond to Prince Caspian.

Not Worth Visiting The Tourist

Considering what might have been expected of a big-budget romance featuring two top stars, The Tourist is rather slight. The lead characters' banter starts with promise, but the film shortchanges the romance as it struggles to incorporate its espionage and gangster storylines.
