Save your money and your time! This is one of those comedies that might have been funnier had it been released at a different time. But when our nation is looking to our president for wartime leadership and wisdom, it seems almost disrespectful and sort of a slap-in-the-face to have a movie that mocks the whole system.

Mike Myers and Candice Bergen end up stealing the show and get the most laughs in this romantic comedy. But there are still some priceless moments from Gwyneth Paltrow as Donna, who dreams of becoming an international flight attendant and is willing to do whatever it takes to get there.

I see sequel written all over this movie and deservedly so! It's fun to watch with an interesting plot, great character portrayals, lots of action, incredible special effects and gadgets and fun nods to the adults by sneaking in references to Dr. Strangelove, Star Wars, Barbarella, Moonraker and Goldfinger.

Kevin Spacey is brilliant in this interesting murder mystery that relies on a surprise ending with a shocking twist. It makes it worth wading through the anti-death penalty propaganda and lengthy fact-building beginning (it's still only 130 minutes but feels longer).

Even though I enjoyed Steve Zahn (and the restrained look he wore on his face through most of the movie) and Bill Duke in this predictable action/comedy, Martin Lawrence's performance was so--well--typical Lawrence. And it sort of ruined the movie for me.
