A film that wants to be both simultaneously slick and tender and misses both by a country mile.

2
A soggy comedy.

3
One moment it is clever and fresh, and the next it becomes stupid.

4
Keeping the Faith is too long and uneven.

The Skulls (2000)
To call this movie simply absurd is almost to pay it a complement.

4/4
7
The football scenes are involving, the acting is up to snuff, and there is something about those last days of high school that remains a solid background for even the most familiar of stories.

Delightful songs and good cheer.

The Haunting (1999)
In The Haunting, the moviemakers succeed in something very difficult: creating a haunted house with real personality and terror.

It rocks hard and sweetly, making that past live and sing for us. I loved this movie madly, and so will many of you.

11
Another borderline-absurd scenario.

3.5/4

The movie taps into a vein of Dickensian sentiment, nightmare and idealism, ribaldry and tragedy that give it that part-dark, part-shining fairytale quality that imbues most King tales and all three of Darabont's features.

Running Free (2000)
Until we really know what animals are thinking, it's probably best to leave talking animal stories in the care of comedic filmmakers.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
15
Tarzan (1999)
Entertaining and spectacular!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
Mickey is a limply derivative, disappointingly trivial and hokey fish-out-of-water crime comedy!

The Yards (2000)
A rare and often quite good try at making a thriller with real people and believable contemporary backgrounds.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
A dark comedy in the muckraking mode that starts out murderously well but then begins to unravel -- just like Russ' misbegotten schemes.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20
An odd little ghoul too cleaned up to survive, a bloodless vampire movie that's mostly lifeless as well.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
Contains more laugh-out-loud moments than The Replacements and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps combined.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
Director Risa Bramon Garcia and writer Shana Larsen obviously know their history and geography, and they've nailed the feel of the early '80s in the East Village.

X-Men (2000)

3.5/4

3.5/4
A stirring, emotionally true testament to foolish bravery as well as shameful evidence of the severity with which it is so often punished.

3.5/4
The Limey (1999)
Intoxicatingly well-crafted!

4/4
The Graduate (1967)
28
2.5/4
Dogma (1999)
The result is a mish-mash of tones in which such absurdities as singer Alanis Morissette's appearance as God undercut any emotional responses you might have to the climaxes involving Bartleby and Bethany.

Lake Placid (1999)
An almost mystifyingly bad movie!
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Stepmom (1998)
33
3.5/4
This Wayne Wang-directed movie hands Sarandon one of the richest comic-dramatic opportunities of her career -- while also confirming Portman as one of her own generation's best and brightest.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
34
Entrapment (1999)
A wildly expensive movie full of computers, nonsense and violence, a film where wit, romance, elegance - everything - is sacrificed on the altar of giganticism, cliche and over-the-top action.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35
Bait (2000)
This film wastes a lot of good actors.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

3.5/4
Chicken Run (2000)
37
The Wood (1999)
Awkward performances, unsure directing flaw The Wood.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38
There is in the film a beauty and ambition rare in most current movies.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39
Hanging Up (2000)
This movie is witty, spry, even touching.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
It's a heist without a plan, a crime without a brain, a thriller without a decent script.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
The movie feels like a demonstration reel for toys, action figures and future DisneyQuest installations.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
The Tic Code (1998)
The Tic Code works better as a sociological study than as a gripping drama. And during this summer of our discontent, that may be recommendation enough.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
Another exhilarating, jaw-dropping romp.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44
The movie gives us enticing sights and sounds, brilliant scenes, gifted actors and artists and at least part of one of the all-time great nerve-jangling thriller plots.

4/4
46
Fishburne is able to create such an effective balance between humor and anxiety that the movie survives its familiarities of character and language.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
47
This movie is capable of hitting you with gale force.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48
Life (1999)
Funny, sad, conventional, unpredictable -- just like the real thing!
Posted Jan 1, 2000

It's all pretty dumb, but if you're in the mood for this sort of thing, you won't have a bad time.
