The Rewrite

BBB (out of 5) Hugh Grant plays an Oscar winning screenwriter whose career has seen better days; he hasn’t had a hit since his breakthrough film and now his agent can’t get him arrested in Hollywood, so he agrees to a teaching job on the east coast that will at least tide him over until he … More The Rewrite

All About Steve

B (out of 5) A film that was released to an immediate reputation as a stinker, and sadly it is well deserved. Sandra Bullock gives an execrably bad, not to mention confusing performance as a quirky crossword puzzle writer who seems to be happy living her lonely life in her parents’ house, single and constantly rambling … More All About Steve

Head Over Heels

BB.5 (out of 5) Billed more as a romantic comedy than anything else, this one only works if you go see it to laugh with the four women playing the Greek chorus of supermodels. They help their new roommate (Monica Potter) get the guy of her dreams (Freddie Prinze Jr., whatever) whom she keeps watching … More Head Over Heels

BB (out of 5) Dull, uneventful murder mystery directed by Alan Rudolph.  Emily Watson is so cute it hurts as the titular heroine, a tongue-twisted innocent who wants to graduate from store detective (or ‘defective’ as she keeps saying) to full-fledged P.I. She sees her chance to prove herself when a mysterious murder connected with a … More Trixie

Spider-Man 2

BBBB.5 (out of 5) It’s been two years since Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) was bitten by a radioactive spider and turned into the Manhattan superhero Spider-Man, and he’s still spinning webs across town keeping people safe from harm. No matter how well Spider-Man does at stopping crime, Peter Parker himself is having a hard time keeping … More Spider-Man 2

Heartbreakers

BB.5 (out of 5) Disappointing comedy that should have been better considering the talent involved. Sigourney Weaver is eye-popping as a con artist who, between jobs taking men for all they’re worth, has a pretty big problem to deal with: her daughter (Jennifer Love Hewitt).  Mom has taught daughter dearest the grift, but little Lolita wants … More Heartbreakers
