Everybody's Fine Review


OK
Cloying sentimentality threatens to overwhelm this quiet character study about a widower trying to reconnect with his children. Despite the solid acting and wrenching drama, this over-slick film never connects emotionally.

But none of their lives are quite what he's been led to expect.

Shooting Fish Review


Excellent
Sweet and entertaining romantic comedy/con man story about two orphans who bilk everyone in London for two million pounds, and, of course, find a little love along the way. Fun and light-hearted, though it could've been reallllly grim.

Waking Ned Devine Review


Very Good
With more naked Irishman than any other film this year, Waking Ned Devine is a pleasant and breezy comedy about a tiny Irish village and its one Lotto-winning resident, who dies after the shock of winning. A scheme is cooked up to collect the winnings in his stead. Happy comedy. Light on the finish, though.
