“..time has not been kind to the thin charms of this Shrek wannabe..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 4

“..this wasn't just a comically fractured fairy tale, but one with a compellingly fractured narrative as well..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..there's nothing especially noteworthy about Hoodwinked Too! in its 3-D iteration..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..seems designed to be forgettable - the type of throwaway kid-friendly movie that comes out a month or two before expectations start to rise in the summer..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..s all-sugar rush, its potential to charm adults and their young charges routinely drowned out by a bigger/faster/jokier ethos..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..one of the most obnoxious and least necessary animated films of the century thus far..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..more peevish than plucky..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1 of 4

“..is that rarity - a film in which practically nothing works..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
1 of 4

“..is memorable for being one of the most obnoxious animated movies of recent years..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..has prettier colors, a beefed-up voice cast, and if the plot's no more original than in the first film, at least there are more gags..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..feels as computer-generated as its creepy, talking-ceramic-toy style of animation..”
by Michelle Orange [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..despite cosmetic surgery, this 3-D sequel reprises the original's formulaic failings: infantile humor, unrelenting wisecracks and popcult references, and flat characters who don't engage one's eyes or interest..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2.5 of 4

“..are irreverent, fast, funky and funny..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

AFTER THE BALL :

“.."After the Ball" is a winning if predictable fable..”
by Tom Keogh [Seattle Times]

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

ADULT BEGINNERS :

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
