Critics punish The Girl Next Door, but some will remember The Alamo. Ella Enchanted fails to enchant, The Whole Ten Yards doesn't measure up, and Johnson Family Vacation gets lost. Plus: Good Bye Lenin! And more reviews of Dogville and Home on the Range.
Critics continue to throw punches over The Passion of The Christ. Christian film critics find Hidalgo ho-hum, take The Reckoning seriously, debate Starsky and Hutch, shoot Club Dread dead, and hang ABC's TV movie Judas.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ties the Oscar record. The Passion of The Christ, a "loser" with critics, is a box office blockbuster. Meanwhile, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights is dirty and dumb, Twisted is torture, Eurotrip is trash, and Clifford's Big Movie charms the kids.
The reviews are finally in for The Passion of The Christ. Plus, Oscar speculation, and reviews of The Return, Touching the Void, My Architect, Welcome to Mooseport, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Against the Ropes, and more.
