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.

 
Scoop Sags Under Weight of Allen's Self-Serving Script

It’s somewhat surprising to discover that Allen has followed the triumph of "Match Point" with yet another light, dialogue-heavy comedy that runs out of gas long before it reaches the finish line. It’s essentially two people talking, then three people talking — but it’s only fitfully amusing.

 
 
Not Even Owen Wilson Can Save "Dupree" From Being a Dud

You, Me and Dupree

 
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.

 
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.

Superman Returns Stays Earthbound

Superman Returns is the answer to many Christians' prayers — a major studio franchise, reinvented and re-imagined to appeal to Christian audiences. So it's worth asking: I s this it? Is this what we've wanted, what we've hoped for?

 
 
Click Desperately Needs an "Off" Button

Click is a comedy about a universal remote control purchased at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Isn't that hilarious? That tells you all you need to know about this abysmal excuse for a film, but if you need more information, read on.

 
Stretchy Pants Save the Day In Very Funny Nacho Libre

Who knew that a friar, moonlighting as a wrestler in unflattering stretchy pants and a homemade cape, could help save a mostly unfunny summer at the movies?

Leaden Lake House Lacks Charm, Central Plot

The trouble with The Lake House isn't the lack of an intriguing premise, a talented cast or picturesque scenery. It's the fact that the story plods along at a painfully slow pace, without even a hint of that romantic spark we’re supposed to be all excited about between the lead characters.

 
 
 
The Break-Up Clocks in at 100 Minutes Too Long

If it wasn't for the few minutes here and there of comedic chemistry of Swingers co-stars Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau or a hilarious impromptu rendition of Yes' "Owner of a Lonely Heart," The Break-Up wouldn’t have been funny at all.

 
"Last" X-Men Stands Strong

Colorful Characters Give Over the Hedge Comic Warmth

Once in a while a good “family movie” arrives on the scene providing clean family entertainment for kids without torturing the adults. With its fun characters, Over the Hedge fits this bill, even though measured against Pixar soon-to-be classics like The Incredibles and Finding Nemo, comes up wanting.

 
Your Heart Will Go On Despite Disaster in Poseidon

Even though it’s common knowledge that “Poseidon” is a remake of the early-70s film “The Poseidon Adventure,” it’s difficult not to compare this ship-sinking adventure to that other disaster classic which won all the Oscars.

 
Warped Worldview Proves Problematic for Just My Luck

A city girl with a charmed life meets a bumbling guy who can’t get his act together, and a chance kiss causes them to swap fortunes. The premise is fresh, lending itself to lots of great gags, but it also makes for a lot of worldview issues for Christian moviegoers.
