Kit Kittredge Not Just for Girls But for Generations

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl is not just a movie for little girls but for generations of girls—not simply to enjoy but to share, to connect through, and possibly even bond in ways they never even considered or thought possible.

 
Absurd Wanted Attempts to Mimic Better Films

To say Wanted is far-fetched, would be the understatement of the year. Much of the film rips off much better action movies like The Matrix and Batman Begins—two films that are infinitely more plausible.

Imaginative Wall·E Connects Dots Between Man and Machine

Pixar has done it again! With an unlikely robotic protagonist, Wall·E's message is all about pure, unadulterated love that looks out for the best interests of each other-and ultimately, mankind at large.

 
Bonneville Road Trip Barely Makes It

As the debut of writer/director Christopher Rowley, Bonneville—but only barely. It’s full of the usual road trip clichés (the road-tripping gals pick up a handsome hitchhiker and one falls in love with a trucker), but it lacks substance.

Get Smart a Truly Hilarious Spy-Spoof Update

Surprisingly, the filmmakers set themselves apart from the typical 1970s “television to film” retread by creating a truly hilarious film, one that updates the spy spoof without the typical comedic contempt.

 
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.

 
Gory Happening Doesn’t Make a Twitch of Sense

Not only are there no tidy (or even quasi-rational) answers to why people are spontaneously killing themselves in M. Night Shyamalan’s latest, but the movie actually gets more confusing—and eye-roll inducing—as the minutes tick on by.

 
The Incredible Hulk Unremarkable Comic Book Fare

Summer action movies are often nothing more than mindless explosions and special effects. Occasionally these popcorn flicks offer something a little deeper. With The Incredible Hulk, clearly the filmmakers are reaching for the latter... with mixed results.

 
Kids and Adults Will Get a Kick Out of Kung Fu Panda

Pursuing your dreams—no matter how big or small—has been a time-honored theme in many a kid’s movie. And the new Jack Black vehicle, Kung Fu Panda, doesn’t stray too far from form.

 
You Don’t Mess with the Zohan Is Good Advice

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan isn’t merely the name of Adam Sandler’s new comedy; it’s also good advice. If you were to try and take this movie on—one predicated on sexual jokes, ethnic stereotypes and ludicrous sight-gags—it would simply beat you down.

More Manolos and Meaninglessness in Sex and the City

In the midst of the meaninglessness, a movie like Sex and the City does manage to offer a powerful reminder. It demonstrates, yet again, how utterly pointless life is—and how difficult relationships are—without a greater purpose for living.

 
Ford Still Has the Indy Flair in Crystal Skull

It’s been 19 years since we’ve last seen Indiana Jones. And in the fourth installment of the popular film franchise, Harrison Ford actually seems rather inspired when he grabs his bullwhip and dons that legendary fedora.

 
Prince Caspian Is the Narnia We've Been Waiting For

In every way that The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tried but failed, Prince Caspian succeeds. What was originally slavish adherence to the source has now become inspired filmmaking—a major step forward that represents the Narnia for which we’ve waited.

 
Speed Racer Has Low Impact Despite Spectacular Effects

Directed by the Wachowski brothers—the duo behind the Matrix trilogy—Speed Racer is another visual wonder, but it’s doubtful its impact on future films will come anywhere close to that of the Matrix films.

 
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.”

 
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.

 
Multiple Dylans Confuse in I’m Not There

Director Todd Haynes seems to be mirroring the confusion about Bob Dylan’s life by making this film so confusing. There is no plot, no chronology, and no thesis—save perhaps that there is no way to ever truly understand this man.

 
Bella a Good Choice for Life-Affirming Entertainment

Bella is fabulous entertainment. You’ll watch, expecting a date movie. In the end, you’ll be smiling—and perhaps even crying—over its moving, life-affirming message of love, hope, reconciliation and redemption.

 
Better Luck Next Time for Iron Man

During a preview screening, squeals upon the first full look at Iron Man were a resounding signal as to what the audience had come to see—not Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. No, this man of steel—"titanium alloy" Stark specifies—is the star of the show.

 
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.
