Boys and Girls (2000)

As its title promises, Robert Iscove's romantic comedy features a number of boys and girls. Or rather, it features a number of character sketches standing in as boys and girls, rendered by actors whom you'd expect to be more careful about selecting projects.


The Business of Strangers (2001)

The Business of Strangers' basic premise -- the meanness of the business of strangers -- is worn-out.


Brother (2001)

With 'Brother', his first English language film, Takeshi Kitano again examines the violent intimacy of the yakuza 'brotherhood.'"


Blow (2001)

'Blow' is all about how reality and money get mixed up.


Best in Show (2000)

The question I am left with, in relation to all these other characters, is what, if anything, are they satirizing?"


The Best Man (1999)

Someone I know organized an opening weekend group to go see The Best Man. As he reasons in the invitation he sent out to several friends, Hollywood pays attention to opening weekend box office receipts, and he'd like to ensure that this film's receipts make an impression on the powers that be. You don't see this kind of effort made for just any movie.


Black Hawk Down (2001)

An action movie dressed up like an art film, 'Black Hawk Down' is not about betrayal or anger, but heroism and patriotic fervor.


The Beach (2000)

Leo's much anticipated follow up to the record smashing Titanic has finally arrived, and it is, perhaps not so surprisingly, considering the hype to be lived up to -- an unmitigated flop.


Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)

We stop short of congratulating Bridget Jones with a hearty 'you've come a long way, baby.' After all, 'Bridget Jones's Diary', like 'Pride and Prejudice', is preoccupied with marriage.
