Nicholas Nickleby Review


Good
Poor Charles Dickens. He has the good fortune to be remembered by the entire world. What high school student hasn't been forced to suffer through Great Expectations? Nowadays, one of his books (and he didn't really write that many) is turned into a movie or a mini-series every year. (2001 saw four Dickens recreations on film or TV.)

2002 will earn but a single Dickens adaptation, a motion picture of Nicholas Nickleby, perhaps Dickens' least-read work and one of his most wandering (the novel being more than 800 pages long).

Titan A.E. Review


Weak
Good Will Hunting goes to space in Titan A.E., an ill-conceived and overambitious animation blowout (courtesy of 20th Century Fox) that makes recent Disney fare look like thinking men's movies.

Matt Damon's voice stars as Cale, an eager-beaver twentysomething in the year 3028 who would be just like any other next-millennium Gen X-er if not for one thing: A race of evil beings called the Drej -- made of pure energy, natch -- have blown up the earth.

Trixie Review


OK
It's a damn shame when a bad movie happens to a great actor. It's even worse when you try to enjoy their performance in the film while being distracted by a terrible wasteland of a script. Such is the sad case of Alan Rudolph's latest "screwball noir" farce, Trixie, a misguided attempt at expanding the noir genre by giving it a comedic twist.

Everything seemed to be in place to make a good film out of Trixie, starting with a great cast of Nick Nolte, Will Patton, Dermot Mulrooney, newcomer Brittany Murphy, Nathan Lane, and the wonderfully versatile actress Emily Watson. The story follows a misunderstood girl named Trixie, who has an annoying habit of mixing up her metaphors - with such memorable lines as "life is no bed of gravy" and "it's like looking through a needle for a haystack." Trixie holds dead-end jobs as a security guard for low-rent department stores but yearns for something better in her life. Don't we all. Eventually she takes a job at a casino resort as an undercover cop and gets involved in a tangled mess of a political sex scandal/murder mystery. Don't you just hate when that happens?!

Teacher's Pet Review


Excellent
I have a hard time deciding whether or not I like Nathan Lane. Since he starred in The Birdcage almost a decade ago, he seems to have adopted an overblown, theatrical presence to whatever role he's playing. Call it Al Pacino Syndrome: when a talented actor finds success with a certain type of performance and then refuses to evolve regardless of the script.

That unwavering acting style can prove beneficial from time to time. Pacino's bellicose antics served him well in Michael Mann's overrated journalism epic The Insider and Lane's motivational speaker/Broadway crooner delivery proves to be a perfect fit in Disney's Teacher's Pet, an animated TV series that comes to the big screen with humor, heart and songs aplenty.

The Lion King 1 1/2 Review


Bad
In typical Disney, fashion, a major hit is followed by a direct-to-video quickie release. Only here's the catch: The Lion King already had a Lion King 2. Figuring the whole Simba storyline was tapped out, Disney goes back to the well with a third film following the lovable supporting creatures, Timon (voiced by Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella).

Why "1 1/2 " instead of a "3"? Because, quite literally, there's no sequel here at all. In fact, there's virtually no new material at all, and those expecting more of the same should steel themselves for exactly that: more of the same.

Win A Date With Tad Hamilton! Review


Extraordinary
Editor's Note: It is the policy of this website to never bestow more than three stars on any film with the word "Tad" in the title, but in the spirit of experimentation, we present this review from a smitten Pete Croatto anyway.

I always groan when I read articles in movie magazines and websites touting some nubile, perky, twentysomething starlet as "the next big thing." Typically, I'm a little hesitant to believe that, because all the designation usually means is that said actress will launch millions of erections. It also gives the false impression that Kirsten Dunst, Natalie Portman, and Reese Witherspoon are all vying for the female lead in The Gin Game.

Win A Date With Tad Hamilton! Review


Good

Let me begin this review by telling you what "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!" is not, because it's not what it looks like.

"Win a Date" is not one of those insipid romantic comedies in which the girl is in love with a jerk but is too dumb to realize it, and the shy guy who's been in love with her from afar all his life has to drum up the chivalrous courage to stop her from doing something foolish, like getting married.

It's not a movie that will make teenage girls swoon while their dates roll their eyes, and director Robert Luketic lets you know it right out of the gate by mocking that very style of movie. It's not a facile comedy that half-heartedly recycles old plots for a target audience that doesn't know any better.

Titan Ae Review


OK

Save its ambitious, eye-popping computer-generated space battle effects, 20th Century Fox's second run at Disney's animation crown is little more than another threadbare cartoon orphan story ("Dinosaur," "Anastasia," "The Lion King," etc.) dressed up in wannabe-anime style and targeted at 11-year-old boys with a toy-friendly, sci-fi storyline and a bad, bad, bad guitar rock soundtrack.

Taking place in a distant future when the Earth has been destroyed and the remnants of mankind are adrift in the galaxy, "Titan AE" follows handsome, cocky, cusp-of-manhood Cale (voice of Matt Damon), the son of a valiant military martyr in our planet's brief defense against a race of energy beings called the Drej.

The Drej blew up Earth with their giant crystalline space ship in an expensive-looking CGI sequence when Cale was just a boy, and now they're hunting what's left of humanity as we flee through the stars. What, exactly, the Drej have against us, the movie doesn't bother to explain. The fact that they look like a lava lamp versions the Terminator's skeleton signals they're bad news, so who needs to bother with, you know, motive?

Trixie Review


Weak

Undeniably an ardently independent filmmaker with unique and eccentric vision, Alan Rudolph has made some peculiarly fascinating movies.

"Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" radiated with atmospheric, addled Algonquin Roundtable intellectualism. "Afterglow" made the threadbare theme of marital infidelity almost hypnotically riveting.

Even when he goes down in flames, like he did with last year's "Breakfast of Champions" adaptation, he does it so spectacularly that it's almost impossible to look away.

Nicholas Nickleby Review


Weak

You deserve a grain-of-salt warning before reading this review: Your friendly film critic really can't abide Charles Dickens, and "Nicholas Nickleby" is especially exemplary of everything that irks me about his work.

The characters in this tale of 19th Century woe are largely one-dimensional -- implausibly sweet and naive or absurdly ruthless and cruel without reason -- and they invite second-guessing to a distracting degree.

Nineteen years old and suddenly the head of his family after his father's death, the title character (played by the over-earnest Charlie Hunnam) reluctantly moves with his mother and sister from the quiet country cottage they can no longer afford to dirty, polluted, noisy, heartless London, seeking the help of Nicholas's rich, odious uncle (Christopher Plummer), who doesn't see why he should be burdened with helping his brother's family.

Stuart Little 2 Review


OK

A significant improvement over its plotless, meandering predecessor, "Stuart Little 2" is fun-loving, low calorie, big-city adventure for the seamlessly computer-animated talking mouse with the effervescent voice of Michael J. Fox.

In this sequel the fuzzy, Lilliputian adopted son of the Little clan -- which includes Stuart's human brother (Jonathan Lipnicki) and his silly, sacchariney, storybook-perfect parents (Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis) -- brings home a spirited sweetheart of a canary named Margalo (Melanie Griffith's voice) after rescuing her from a falcon.

When she later disappears -- along with Mrs. Little's wedding ring -- naive, good-hearted Stuart is convinced the falcon has snatched her away and sets out on a rescue mission, dragging along a very reluctant Snowball, the Littles' pampered house cat with the Vaudevillian voice of Nathan Lane.
