REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
2.5 of 5

“..this is a lot smarter and funnier than the considerably paler multi-character-spanning romantic comedy stinkers Garry Marshall has been churning out lately..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2 of 5

“..the laughs are too infrequent and lazy to do the cast justice..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
Review rate : B-

“..the cookie-cutter behavioral tics are funny in an overly broad way, even if the dialogue is basically stand-up patter turned into glib, fast conversation..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 5

“..the actors offer gentle twists that take away some of the sting..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..story and collaborators succeed in making a courtship comedy that will entertain women and amuse men..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]

by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
3 of 5

“..relaxed yet lively..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..once the movie starts, it feels like an ad for the book..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..often hits its amusing marks, but with a weighty running time of two hours, it often feels more like a lecture than an intended romp..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..keeping the audience laughing - and caring - from start to finish..”
by Jennie Punter [Globe and Mail]
“..is watching a few talented performers make do with the worst..”
by Mellisa Anderson [Village Voice]

by Bob Mondello [NPR]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
