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.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Takes Lewis Fans on a Fantastic Trip

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.

Madness Explicitly Depicted in Black Swan

Director Darren Aronofsky likes his darkness. This film about a ballet dancer stretched to the breaking point will further cement his reputation.

A Tricky Point of View in All Good Things

All Good Things recounts a high-profile disappearance case from the early 1980s that was opened again in the early 2000s, but the names have been changed in this telling.

Burlesque Alternates Between Laughable, Spectacular

Burlesque will play better or worse depending on what you like to see in a musical—a well told story or big-screen, razzle-dazzle music numbers. The best musicals have both, the biggest failures neither. Burlesque splits the difference.

Dwayne Johnson is Definitely Furious in Action-Packed Faster

For those who enjoy nothing more than a big, loud, escapist flick with a little takeaway value on a holiday weekend, don't worry. Faster isn't a turkey. If anything, it's the right move forward for the actor formerly known as The Rock.

Love & Other Drugs Never Recovers from an Identity Crisis

Part Love Story, part Up in the Air with a smidge of the satirical spirit of Thank You for Smoking, Love & Other Drugs never quite knows what it is, and the story ultimately suffers for it. Truth be told, bothering to label it "good" is probably too strong of praise.

Tangled Brings Back Some Disney Magic

Disney's update of the Rapunzel story confirms that the studio isn't ready to completely cede its reputation as a maker of solid family-oriented films.

Dreary Deathly Hallows Won't Win New Fans

The best that can be said for this first half of Deathly Hallows is that it's unlikely to displease fans who have committed themselves to reading and seeing the other Harry Potter tales.

The Next Three Days Stretches All Bounds of Believability

Unlike in Conviction, where the protagonist places her hope in the law and becomes her brother's own defense counsel, in The Next Three Days Russell Crowe's character decides to go rogue instead by basically borrowing a page from TV's Prison Break.

Extreme Situation, One-Note Characters Work in Unstoppable

The premise is simple, the execution is competent and the film delivers the requisite amount of crowd-pleasing thrills. And yet, the film feels a little too easy in the depiction of its main characters, who are sketched out with scant information about their motivations.

The Quest for Truth Fuels Fair Game

Based on the memoirs written by Joe Wilson and his CIA agent wife Valerie Plame, Fair Game showcases their side of a controversial story.

Morning Glory is a Mostly Sunny, Satirical Take on TV News

Much like 1987's Broadcast News, there's actually a deeper debate that elevates the light and sunny romantic comedy of Morning Glory into something more substantial, namely the discussion of what's "real" news.

This Generation's Planes, Trains & Automobiles Arrives in Due Date

Much like its R-rated Planes, Trains & Automobiles predecessor that starred Steve Martin and the late John Candy back in 1987, Due Date is also the madcap tale of two guys who would never take a cross-country road trip together, if extenuating circumstances weren't involved.

Boyle Takes You through the Ringer in 127 Hours

Danny Boyle's 127 Hours takes you through the ringer, sure to elicit audible (and collective) gasps, groans and shrieks before concluding in one cathartic exhale of relief and redemption. It's not the kind of movie to engender multiple viewings, but one is enough to sear it into your mind forever.

 
Monsters Stresses Somber Over Scary

Although it could have resulted in a unique hybrid of different styles, Monsters is unique more for its failure to generate any well-earned emotions—or thrills. Better to rent District 9, Cloverfield or The Host, which work much better on their own terms, than to try to make do with this.

Dreamworks' Megamind a Familiar but Funny Trip

It's déjà vu all over again with Megamind, yet another superhero story in which super-villains go to great lengths to undermine the good guys. Think The Incredibles, Despicable Me, Shrek Forever After or… well, we've seen a lot of this sort of story recently.
