Leatherheads

Pleasant and clever, Leatherheads is not built for surprises.

Reviews

Bee Movie

A possible trans-species romance turns instead into a strangely balanced relationship comprised of financial and legal accord -- with a bit of ecological crisis and subsequent alignment to boot.

Reviews

Miss Potter (2006)

Chris Noonan's next-film-after-Babe doesn't engage this alternative realm except as whimsy. Beatrix is eccentric. Her "friends" are cute.

Whether sad, frustrated, or even thinking about losing his temper, Jim is never less than stalwart.

Down With Love (2003)

At its best, Down With Love celebrates this fictional elegance with a corresponding airiness.
