Spotlight Review

Extraordinary

This film demonstrates that you don't need guns to make an exciting thriller. Based on a true story, this is a journalistic procedural following a team of newspaper writers who take on a corrupt system. The outcome is well-known (they won a Pulitzer Prize and launched the global investigation into child abuse by Catholic priests), but the film is still utterly riveting, beautifully written and played to perfection.

In 2001, the Boston Globe's investigative Spotlight team is working to report the biggest stories in the city. So newly arrived senior editor Marty (Liev Schreiber) asks them to find out if there's truth to rumours that the local Catholic Archdiocese is covering up abuse. But he's unaware that the church controls the city, and the Spotlight writers (Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Brian d'Arcy James) quickly encounter heavy resistance from the establishment. As they persistently dig deeper, they realise that the story is exponentially bigger than anyone thought it was. Two lawyers (Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup) prove to be crucial in this process, as the team works to prove that the Cardinal (Len Cariou) has been covering up abuse for decades.

Cleverly, writer Josh Singer and writer-director Tom McCarthy never play this story for its salacious details. Instead, they focus on the people involved, which gives the film a strong sense of what's at stake here and the urgency of getting the story exactly right. It's a rare movie that can maintain this balance, gripping the audience and building suspense without ever tipping over into sensationalism. And the filmmakers bring out some strong emotional resonance in sensitive conversations between the journalists and the victims. All of this is expertly played by actors who stir in personal details without letting their characters' side-stories interfere with the larger narrative. They also resist the temptation to overplay the material, letting the facts of the case provide every gut-punch.

Rachel McAdams Linked To 'True Detective' Season 2 - Should We Be Worried?


Rachel McAdams Elisabeth Moss

Rachel McAdams, the American actress best known for The Notebook, Midnight in Paris and Sherlock Holmes, is being lined up to play the female lead in True Detective 2, reports suggest. The actress, 35, is understood to be in talks to play the no-nonsense Californian sheriff - the role that Elisabeth Moss was rumored to have landed.

According to Variety, the Mad Men actress is still in contention for the part, though it may be that McAdams is edging ahead. As we already knew, Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch are also still in discussions for roles, though with production scheduled to get underway this month - is it time to start assuming the casting process is not running smoothly?

Rachel McAdams' 'The Notebook' Audition Tape Will Give You Shivers


Rachel McAdams Ryan Gosling Nick Cassavetes

Once of the world's best-loved romance movies, The Notebook, has just turned ten, marking a decade since the then little-known actors Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were catapulted into the spotlight with their breath-taking performance and onscreen chemistry.

Adapted from the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, the story charts two lovers who fall in love during the early 1940s. Local country boy Noah Calhoun and heiress Allie Hamilton embark on a romance despite a myriad of issues, including the implications of their different classes and disapproval of Allie's parents.

Gosling's role as Noah was apparently secured fairly early on but director Nick Cassavetes had an extensive hunt for a leading lady to play Allie. In a newly-released audition tape, it's clear to see why Cassavetes and Gosling knew instantly that they wanted the Mean Girls actress for the movie.

Calm Down! Tina Fey Crushes 'Mean Girls' Sequel Rumours, But Reveals A Musical Version


Tina Fey Rachel McAdams Lindsay Lohan Lacey Chabert Amanda Seyfried

Tina Fey has put a stop to all the Mean Girls sequel rumours that have been circulating lately, saying that a follow-up to the oft-quoted 2004 teen hit is out of the question. Fans are largely split between two camps: those who would love to see a sequel with Lindsay Lohan and the original crew, and those who think another film would be laboured, unnecessary and run the risk of damaging the appeal of its predecessor.

Tina Fey
Tina Fey Has Shot Down Rumours Of A 'Mean Girls' Sequel.

Fey and Lohan appeared on Jimmy Fallon's first episode of The Tonight Show last month where they addressed the calls for more Means Girls action. The 30 Rock star said that whilst there was an argument for temporarily reuniting the cast - 19th April will mark the film's 10 year anniversary - there was little chance that any plans would be made for another film.

About Time Review


Weak

Curtis has said he may stop making movies, and on the basis of this film you can kind of see why: he's clearly in a rut. While this romance attempts a bit of magical whimsy, it's the same collection of sassy comedy, romantic drama and sudsy sentimentality that characterised Love Actually and Notting Hill. More troubling is how it presents that same almost offensively slanted view of British society.

The magical element is time travel, as young Tim (Gleeson) learns from his father (Nighy) that the men in his family can flit back along their timelines at will, reliving past events and fixing things where needed. Tim decides this will come in handy as he looks for a wife, and indeed he uses his skill to circle round and round charming American Mary (McAdams) until they fall in love. And over the next several years, as he figures out how to make their life together as amazing as possible, he learns that there are some limitations to this gift.

As always, Curtis gives his characters a fantasy level of wealth that doesn't really make sense. We never see Tim travel back to win the lottery, but there's no other explanation for how he and Mary are able to buy a house in a posh Maida Vale street. And these characters also live in an imagined pocket of London that has no diversity at all, as we never see anyone who isn't white and straight. But then, Tim's idyllic childhood on the Cornish coast isn't exactly believable either, complete with a quirky earth-adoring sister (Wilson) and always-confused uncle (Cordery).

'Passion' Reviews: Brian De Palma, Is That Really You?


Brian De Palma Rachel McAdams Noomi Rapace

Brian De Palma, a man once considered the finest director on the planet having helmed The Untouchables and Scarface, returns this week with Passion - a thriller based on the 2010 French movie Love Crime. 

It stars Rachel McAdams and the ultra-talented Noomi Rapace and follows the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Or at least that's what the promotional bumf says: essentially, McAdams plays a Berlin-based advertising executive who engages in a power struggle with her assistant Isabelle, who attempts to further her career.

Passion - De Palma's first movie since his war movie Redacted in 2007 - was selected to compete for the Golden Lion at the 69th Venice International Film Festival, but it won't win.

'About Time' Premieres In London: Did Critics Enjoy Richard Curtis' Swansong?


Rachel McAdams Domhnall Gleeson Richard Curtis Bill Nighy

When Richard Curtis announced that he was stepping away from filmmaking after three decades of movies, fans of his sweet and touching rom-coms looked forward to the final piece from the romantic comedy maestro who helped bring us Love Actually, both Bridget Jones films, Notting Hill and Four Weddings & A Funeral.

Domhnall Gleeson Rachel McAdams Richard Curtis
Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams & Richard Curtis At Last Night's Premiere.

About Time's premise is straightforward yet intriguing. A young man named Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) finds out from his father (Bill Nighy) that the men in their family have the ability to time travel. Just head somewhere quiet, focus on a dark memory then...pop! Rather than use the skill for earthly good Tim decides his first mission will be to get a girlfriend. The object of his affection, in true Four Weddings/Notting Hill Curtis style is the smiling, confident American to contrast with Tim's bumbling ways (à la Hugh Grant).

Richard Curtis, Director Of Bridget Jones, Notting Hill To Retire From Filmmaking


Richard Curtis Domhnall Gleeson Rachel McAdams Bill Nighy

Richard Curtis, king of the romantic comedy genre, has decided that the soon-to-be-released About Time will most likely be his last. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker, best known for his screenwriting skills for The Boat That Rocked, Love Actually, Notting Hill, and both Bridget Jones films, has told Empire magazine (reported by The Independent) that "[About Time] probably will be the last film I will direct."

Pressed for a reason he's taking a step back, the 56 year-old filmmaker admitted he himself wasn't sure: "I don't know. Just a feeling...just a feeling. It feels like a summing-up to me. We'll see how things turn out."

Undoubtedly the king of British rom-com, Richard Curtis has enjoyed a long and successful career, writing or helming some of the country’s most-loved films.

In addition to his Oscars and Bafta nominations/wins, he can probably add a ‘films played most at Christmas’ award to his illustrious list.

But the time has come, according to Curtis at least, to down tools and enjoy retirement. There will be no more writing/directing for this guy. "I waited a while in order to write About Time.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Richard Curtis, the man behind British romantic-comedy behemoths Notting Hill, Love Actually and Bridget Jones's Diary, is back with his latest foray into the best-loved movie genre.

However, Tim slips up during one of his time warps, discovering that Mary has never met him before and that several months of romance have simply vanished. He must try and win her back for a second time, though his special power comes with dangerous consequences.

Rachel McAdams Hair Hits Headlines As Star Opts For Red Locks


Rachel McAdams

The Canadian actress doesn’t have to do much to get herself in the headlines but this time around, it’s Rachel McAdams’ hair that’s got her noticed. Perhaps she’s opted for a bold new look since splitting with her former partner Michael Sheen because this time, she’s gone for striking red locks that won’t fail to get her noticed by potential new suitors.

She’s not the only actress to have opted for auburn hair recently either; she’s keeping good company with Dianna Agron went with a fiery copper shade recently, too. Similarly, Ariel Winter decided that bright red was the shade for her and also adopted a bold new look. We reckon it’s the Jessica Chastain effect, you know; it seems that half of Hollywood is getting in on the action, with Winter showing off her bright new ‘do on Instagram.

Rachel McAdams, of course, is no stranger to a colourful new barnet. She’s been blonde, pink, brunette… you name it, she’s delved into that dye packet. We reckon the red hair suits her though; we’re wondering how long the 34 year old will keep it before switching again. The recently-split actress certainly seems to be enjoying her new life as a single woman and was recently pictured on a day out at Disneyland with her parents.

Can Oscar Darling Ben Affleck Save Malick's To The Wonder? (Trailer)


Terrence Malick Ben Affleck Rachel McAdams Javier Bardem

Ahead of its full U.S. release, a full theatrical trailer has been released for Terrence Malick's latest movie 'To The Wonder', about a couple from Oklahoma who run into problems after moving to Mont Saint-Michel - an rocky tidal island near Normandy, France.

Marina, played by Olga Kurylenko meets a priest and fellow exile (Javier Bardem) who is struggling with his vocation, while Neil, played by Ben Affleck, renews ties with childhood friend Jane (Rachel McAdams). Let us not beat around the bush here: critics hated Terrence Malick's latest effort and the reclusive filmmaker is probably beginning to divide critics more than even he would like. Tim Robey of the Daily Telegraph said, "The movie wants to explore looming crises of faith, but for Malick fans it's in serious danger of entailing one." Time Out said, "There's a phoniness to the film's people and places that keeps us at a fatal distance from the big ideas with which 'To the Wonder' seeks to engage us." There's a huge problem here. Malick presumably chose Mont Saint-Michel as its considered one of the most mythical and intriguing places on the planet. If it appears phony on-screen then 'To The Wonder' is done for.

Not A Break-Up, Just A Hiccup For Michael Sheen And Rachel McAdams?


Rachel McAdams Michael Sheen

Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams' recent split from their long-distance relationship is thought to be just a 'temporary hiccup'.

The 'Midnight In Paris' stars broke up this week after three years of living hundreds of miles apart. McAdams previously admitted to The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, 'Michael and I never spend more than three weeks apart - we rack up a lot of air miles - but you have to be quite adaptable in this business whether you are in a relationship or not.' And while her adaptability seems to be on the wane, new reports suggest that they are just taking a break. 'It's likely not permanent', a source told E! Online. 'Temporary hiccup.'

Given that Rachel has developed a habit of dating her onscreen lovers in her many romance flicks (Ryan Gosling, for example, who she was engaged to after 'The Notebook'), we were worried that she might've just fallen for a new co-star having recently completed filming for the romantic comedy 'About Time' alongside Domhnall Gleeson. PerezHilton.com suggested a second reunion with Gosling could've been on the cards, though now it seems neither are true. It would be shame not to see them together again especially after Sheen told E! Online at the premiere of 'Midnight in Paris', 'I will be forever grateful that it was where I met Rachel.'

Relationship Over? Rachel McAdams And Michael Sheen Have Reportedly Split


Rachel McAdams Michael Sheen

Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen have split after two years in a relationship together. Us Magazine confirmed the news that 34 year-old Rachel and 44 year-old Michael have decided to call it a day, according to a source. McAdams had previously revealed that although they never spent more than three weeks apart, the very nature of their working lives meant that they had to do a lot of travelling to keep the relationship going.

“Michael and I never spend more than three weeks apart - we rack up a lot of air miles - but you have to be quite adaptable in this business whether you are in a relationship or not,” she had previously told Stella magazine. She also revealed that the key to a strong relationship is communication: “You need to trust each other and be able to talk to each other and be best friends.” The pair met when they both starred in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, though Adams has been keen to stress that they did not get together whilst they were working on the movie: “Michael and I didn't get together while we were filming Midnight in Paris, which I feel strongly about not doing when I'm working. We became quite good friends, which I think is a great way to start.”

Rachel was previously engaged to the actor Ryan Gosling, though they ended their engagement in 2007. Sheen has a daughter Lily (aged 14) from a previous relationship with Kate Beckinsale.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows Trailer


In 1892, the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead; his death is ruled as suicide, according to Scotland Yard detective Inspector Lestrade. But Sherlock Holmes knows that this isn't true: all the evidence suggests that the Crown Prince was murdered, by one Professor Moriarty, whose genius is matched only by Holmes'.

Morning Glory Review


Very Good
A snappy script helps make this rather goofy comedy much more enjoyable than it should be. And it also helps that the film is extremely well-cast, and that it has some pointed things to say.

Becky (McAdams) is an ambitious young TV producer who has always dreamed of working for NBC's Today show. After being sacked from her job at a local New Jersey station, she finds work at low-rated network programme Daybreak. Sparky anchor Colleen (Keaton) gives Becky a run for her money in the energy stakes, and when Becky lands jaded veteran reporter Mike (Ford) as cohost, things start to get messy. Soon her boss (Goldblum) tells her that the show will be cancelled if ratings don't improve drastically. So Becky takes drastic action.

Sherlock Holmes Review


Excellent

Raucous, rough energy infuses this film from start to finish, carrying us along even when the slightly over-egged script starts to feel somewhat slender. And it's the terrific chemistry between Downey and Law that makes the film worth seeing.

In Victorian London, private investigator Sherlock Holmes (Downey) is about to lose his partner John Watson (Law), who's moving out to marry his fiancee (Reilly). But the case they've just finished, involving a series of secret-society murders carried out by Lord Blackwood (Strong), just won't end.
Now Holmes' ex Irene (McAdams) is on the scene as well, and things are getting increasingly freaky with more murders and a conspiracy that could lead to a takeover of the whole government. But Holmes' fierce powers of observation are on the case.

The producers blast new life into fusty cinematic stalwarts with their canny choice of director and stars. In many ways this feels more faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle's stories than the dry, cerebral films we're used to. Downey perfectly combines the character's edgy physicality, brainy powers of deduction and sardonic wit. And he and Law are like an hilarious bickering married couple that has lived together just a little too long.

No one else in the cast quite registers. McAdams and Reilly at least play strong-minded women, while Strong glowers satanically from the shadows and Marsan (as the chief inspector) tuts amusingly. The script is mostly smoke and mirrors, weaving in all manner of Holmes' lore, from the original story details to playful references to previous film incarnations (although Holmes never says "elementary", and he never wears a deerstalker).

And if the script isn't nearly as smart as it thinks it is, at least it contains a few nifty twists, including one of the more enjoyable resolutions in recent blockbuster memory. But what we're here for are the fireworks between Downey and Law, a couple of feisty-sexy women and Ritchie-isms like nasty slo-mo fight sequences, witty editing and suggestive lighting. He also offers plenty of refreshingly abrasive vigour to go with the cool effects and a zingy Hans Zimmer score. Bring on the next case.

The Time Traveler's Wife Review


Excellent
Adapting Audrey Niffenegger's wonderfully complex novel to the screen can't have been easy, but Rubin (Ghost) has written a thoroughly engaging film. The heavy emotional tone makes it feel a bit girly, but it's still a terrific story.Henry (Bana) has time-travelled since the night his mother (Nolden) died in a car crash. He can't control his "trips", although he seems to go to places with an emotional resonance. When he first meets Clare (McAdams), she's in her 30s and has known him since she was 6 (Proulx). As a result of this paradox, their relationship develops very differently for each of them. Eventually they find friends (Livingston and McLean) who are in on Henry's condition. And a doctor (Tobolowsky) who may be able to help.Director Schwentke invests the film with a lush visual style that circles around the characters as they try to make sense of their life together. Subtle effects and clever editing work extremely well, even if Mychael Danna's music is a little too insistently weepy. And while the premise presents Henry's condition as something like epilepsy, the film can hardly help but start feeling like a terminal illness drama, as signs of impending tragedy start to appear.Bana is good in what's essentially a thankless role. The script doesn't offer him much personality beyond earnestness, so Bana plays him as a nice guy just trying to muddle through. Opposite him, McAdams is a wonderful breath of fresh air, really capturing Clare's steely resolve and quiet pain. Livingston and Tobolowsky are also extremely good in far too few scenes.There's definitely the sense that this film is edited down from a richer, more detailed novel. One problem is that Henry's ageing is far too subtle, so we're never quite sure which time he's travelling from (see Christopher Nolan's Memento or, better yet, Following, for how to do this well). And although we notice loose threads and missing scenes, the editors have done a remarkable job of making such a fragmented tale hold together both emotionally and logically.

And in the end, the film compellingly explores the nature of relationships while quietly moving us to all kinds of tears.

Sherlock Holmes Trailer


Arthur Conan Doyle's tales of Sherlock Holmes are known all over the world, both him and his partner Dr. Watson are his most famous characters. In this new film from director Guy Ritchie, a new side to Sherlock Holmes is revealed, one where his fighting skills are just as strong as his celebrated intellect.

State Of Play Review


Good
Big government getting in bed with corrupt private conglomerates. The fresh-faced Congressman hell-bent on bringing said scandal to light. The uncovered infidelity which threatens his power base, and the crumpled investigative journalist who must resolve his personal interest in the story with the legitimate needs of the press and his own corporate bosses. This should be the basis for a crackerjack thriller -- and it actually was when BBC scribe Paul Abbott crafted the six-episode series State of Play back in 2003. As with most successful foreign exports, Hollywood came calling, and now we have the big screen version starring Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, and Helen Mirren. Instead of expanding the suspense, however, this ragtag, routine experience is effective, if perfunctory.

When the research assistant to brash young House member Stephen Collins (Affleck) dies in a mysterious accident, the press has a field day with the politician's possible adultery. Naturally, the Washington Globe and its crack staff, including reporter Cal McCaffrey (Crowe), blogger Della Frye (Rachel McAdams), and editor Cameron Lynne (Mirren), are exploring every angle. But there's a catch. You see, McCaffrey and Collins were college roommates, and they've maintained a strong friendship ever since. They've even shared the affections of the Congressman's current wife Anne (Robin Wright Penn).

The Lucky Ones Review


Terrible
Soldiers returning home from Iraq deserve a proper narrative feature that addresses the physical discomfort, mental anguish, and emotional hardship they encounter while assimilating into the day-to-day routines of normal life.

The Lucky Ones is not that film. It is, instead, a sloppily executed (though decently acted) road trip picture that manages to do one thing consistently, and that's veer off the path of good intentions and crash.

Married Life Review


Good
Married Life, a new film from director Ira Sachs, feels very much like a film from a different era -- a fact that's mostly enjoyable, with a few minor exceptions. Set in the late 1940s, presumably in and around New York City, Married Life tells the story of Harry Allen (Chris Cooper), a wealthy businessman who one day confesses to his old friend Richard (Pierce Brosnan) that he intends to leave his wife and take up with his mistress. Complications arise when Harry decides the only way out of his marriage is to murder his wife, while at the same time his pal Richard goes behind his back and courts the affection of his mistress.

What's pleasurable about this film, and the way the story unfolds, is its elegant simplicity. No more than ten minutes into the movie, Sachs and his co-screenwriter Oren Moverman have skillfully limned each of the main characters' hopes and ambitions and set in motion the levers of conflict that drive the story forward. Harry wants to experience the type of romantic love that has long since vanished, if it ever existed, from his marriage with Pat (Patricia Clarkson), while she, for her part, longs for greater passion and the adolescent thrill of sex. Kay (Rachel McAdams), Harry's mistress, seeks true love for the second time after losing her husband in World War II, and Richard, a womanizing bachelor, hopes to discover the ability to form an emotional connection with a woman.

The Family Stone Review


Weak
The Family Stone wants to be many things. It wants to be funny and touching and warm-hearted, like any good holiday film, but aspiration is not achievement and The Family Stone proves it.

Written and directed by Thomas Bezucha, the story starts with Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney) bringing his uptight girlfriend, Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker), home for Christmas to meet his family. The Stones take an immediate disliking to Meredith -- she's corporate, they're earthy -- forcing her into a downward spiral where she tries ever harder to win their approval. Sort of like Meet the Parents... at Christmastime... without the laughs.

The Hot Chick Review


Bad
I often question the intelligence of production teams behind movies like The Hot Chick. Do well-rounded, educated artists really set out to create such appalling, frail productions? Apparently so, because Tom Brady, the film's director and co-writer, graduated from Harvard University. That's right, the creator of The Hot Chick, one of the most mindless, incompetent films of the year, went to Harvard, one of the most prestigious colleges in America.

Given Mr. Brady's vast achievements of shame, I can't imagine he's listed high in Harvard's list of successful alumni. After all, his artistic mishaps don't end with The Hot Chick; he also inspired a pathetic flop called The Animal that proved just how stupid American filmmakers perceive their audiences. Brady also assumes partial responsibility for the failed television comedy Men Behaving Badly. From a guy who attended Harvard, I expect Emmys and Oscars, not cancellations and Rob Schneider!

Wedding Crashers Review


OK
Good comedies get by on amusing concepts, while great comedies sustain the laughter long after they've delivered their one-line pitch. Wedding Crashers belongs in the former category. It rides its amusing premise like gangbusters for one solid act, but overextends itself the minute it leaves the comfy confines of its smart setup.

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, playing themselves, are John and Jeremy - lifelong friends who spend the wedding season crashing strangers' receptions for the free booze and vulnerable women. They have an angle for every party and work the room like politicians at a fund-raising breakfast. Watching them attack someone else's special day with reckless abandon provides the most fun I've ever had at a wedding, my own not included.

The Notebook Review


Weak
With just four films under Nick Cassavetes's belt, it's almost unfair to compare the director to his trailblazing father. In the case of The Notebook, however, it's unavoidable.

Thanks to papa John (Husbands, Gloria), the name Cassavetes has come to symbolize intrepid, no-apologies filmmaking and the unconventional human interaction within Now, 15 years after the maverick's death, his heir has traveled to the opposite pole, adapting a Nicholas Sparks novel into a standard tearjerker, filling the screen with handfuls of manipulative Hollywood clichés.

Mean Girls Review


Very Good
When I was in high school, I didn't have many friends. Instead, I analyzed the cliques from a distance. I even created a little chart showing where everyone sat in the cafeteria. Seeing a similar map surface about 20 minutes into Mean Girls, I can see the filmmakers and I are starting out on the same page.

Lindsay Lohan stars as new-kid-in-town Cady Heron, fresh from the plains of Africa where her parents have been studying wildlife. When her mother gets a position at Northwestern, it's back to the States where she must attend classes like everyone else. Customary first-day humiliation ensues.

Red Eye Review


Good
Horror director Wes Craven has had his share of hits and misses. His strongest work encompasses the iconic (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and the ironic (Scream). His weakest outings give the genre a bad name (Deadly Friend). Red Eye, his latest effort, shows that while he may not drive your fingernails into the armrest like he used to, he still knows how to grab your attention.

The film begins with Lisa (Rachel McAdams), a driven professional, on her way to board the eponymous flight from Dallas to Miami. When the flight is delayed, she meets Jackson (Cillian Murphy), who, after some clumsy flirting, gains her trust. By apparent coincidence, they end up seated together when the flight finally takes off. Unfortunately, Jackson turns out to be part of a conspiracy to kill a Homeland Security bigwig and Lisa is a key to their plans. Jackson tells her that if she doesn't help, a man is waiting outside her father's house, ready to kill him.

Red Eye Review


OK

Long-time horror maven Wes Craven tries his hand at Hitchcockian suspense in "Red-Eye," and turns in a modest B-movie thriller that's just as invigorating as it is easy to pick apart.

Earning its suspension of disbelief through keen performances and tight storytelling, the movie stars the talented Rachel McAdams ("Wedding Crashers," "Mean Girls") as a balls-in-the-air young manager of a luxury Florida hotel who is taking an overnight flight home from a trip. Standing in line to check in, she meets a handsome, friendly fellow (Cillian Murphy, "28 Days Later," "Batman Begins") and winds up sitting with him on the plane, making slightly awkward, slightly flirtatious small talk that actually keeps the film afloat for a good 20 minutes.

Once their flight is in the air, however, Murphy's charmingly evasive demeanor suddenly turns dark (as do his penetrating blue eyes) as he explains their encounter is no coincidence: A honcho from Homeland Security is about to check into her hotel, and if she doesn't keep quiet and help arrange an assassination, Murphy has a man outside her father's house ready to kill on his command.

Wedding Crashers Review


Good
About 20 minutes before the credits roll in "WeddingCrashers," something goes very wrong. It feels as if a drunken scriptdoctor stumbled into the party, demanded to know where all the clicheshad gone and insisted they be put right back where they belong.

Soon there are interrupted weddings, "I tried to tellyou but couldn't" apologies and an avalanche of other plot machinationsthat come close to ruining what is otherwise the bawdiest, most consistentlyhilarious comedy so far this year.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have an ad-lib-happy, almostHope-and-Crosby-like chemistry as a pair of buddies -- ironically talenteddivorce mediators by profession -- who spend their free time attendingweddings of people they don't know to score with girls they'll never seeagain. Almost the entire first reel of the movie is something akin to afilmmaking miracle -- one long, perfectly-tuned montage sequence of variousethnic weddings that just keeps getting funnier and funnier as it mixestoasts, dances, flirtations, made-up war stories, fake tears, and prettygirls caught up in the romance of the day and jumping our heroes' bones.

Story proper kicks in when the boys dare to crash "theKentucky Derby of weddings" -- the Secretary of State's eldest daughteris getting hitched -- and Wilson lays eyes on the middle daughter (talented,bright-eyed Everygirl knockout Rachel McAdams) as she's quietly snickeringthrough her sister's corny self-written vows.

The Hot Chick Review


Bad

Rob Schneider's new low-brow body-swap romp "The Hot Chick" is such an insipidly sexist so-called comedy that the movie's entire female cast is reduced to jumping up and down, giggling and playing patty-cake while rhyming about the ickiness of sex.

These characters don't have a brain cell to share among them, but Schneider (who plays an idiot too, but what else is new?) and director Tom Brady genuinely expect the audience to identify with these one-dimensional teenage airheads.

More specifically, they expect us to identify with catty queen ditz Jessica (Rachel McAdams), who, through a curse not worth explaining here, wakes up in the short, hairy, burlap-sack body of a scummy, gas-station-robbing low-life (Schneider) just a few days before the prom.

Continue reading: The Hot Chick Review

The Notebook Review


OK

I cannot believe I'm about to recommend a movie as clogged with melodramatic treacle as Nick Cassavetes' adaptation of "The Notebook" -- a self-serious soap opera by novelist Nicholas Sparks, who never met a romantic cliché, dramatic contrivance, transparent plot point or insipid line of dialogue he didn't love like a dog in heat.

Even more outwardly trite than the author's "A Walk to Remember" and "Message In a Bottle," this story is about a beautiful, privileged Southern debutante falling in love with a young, earthy mill worker in the small town where she spends the summer of 1940.

Her high-and-mighty parents object, naturally, and drag her off to Savannah. He writes every day, but her mother intercepts the letters, and the heartbroken Allie (Rachel McAdams, "Mean Girls") doesn't find out until seven years later that the heartbroken Noah (Ryan Gosling, "Murder by Numbers") never stopped thinking about her. They meet again by chance, just as she's about to marry a generically wonderful rich guy (James Marsden) -- whom she really does love, of course. But when she sees Noah...well, you get the idea.

Continue reading: The Notebook Review

Mean Girls Review


OK

The stinging wit of first-time screenwriter Tina Fey -- acerbic co-host of Weekend Update on "Saturday Night Live," and the show's head writer -- gives "Mean Girls" a zest and zing few high school comedies ever muster.

An outwardly stereotypical teen movie about the new girl in school (Lindsay Lohan) being torn between arty out-crowd real friends who initially welcome her and the catty, curvy, callous queen bees of the campus, who covet her knockout looks to bolster their ranks, it's a flick with a surprisingly subversive nature: Cady (Lohan) begins socially canoodling with the elitist "plastics" not because she wants to be popular, but because she wants to help bring them down.

Invited into the "cool" clique by Barbie-doll blonde Regina (Rachel McAdams, "The Hot Chick") and her clingy cohorts (Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried), Cady reports back on their "Heathers"-like cruelty to her outcast pals, Janis the coal-eyed punker chick (Lizzy Caplan) and Damian the big, burly, proudly queeny teddy bear (Daniel Franzese).
