REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  2 of 5 [Rate It]

“..what you hope for is not even close to what you get, and in this case we are left with a heartbreaking disappointment of a film..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..unshowy, imparting period flavor without overwhelming what is, ultimately, an underwhelming film..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2 of 5

“..this is one of those movies that never feels grounded in reality. You never sense any chemistry between the leads..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..the film doesn't end with a happily-ever-after fadeout but a tougher, emotionally satisfying resolution..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
0.5 of 4

“..like hell. The movie feels like a life sentence..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..it's the feel-bad film of the summer and an almost perfect example of how not to turn a book into a movie..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
Review rate : C-

“..in One Day, the words - many of them taken directly from the book - are never convincing..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 4

“..a frustrating film, never light enough on its feet to be cute, never heartfelt enough to achieve "You had me at 'Hello'"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..a beautiful movie, but beautiful in a way that life often is, not movies. Nothing is sudden or easy, either for the characters or for the audience, and there are no thunderbolts from the blue..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
