SteveRhodes wrote a review of Frida. Julie Taymor's FRIDA is a solidly entertaining biopic that's as easy to admire as a Grant Wood painting, which is surprising since the movie tells the story of controversial Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. At its worst it's like a paint-by-numbers picture, but at its best, it sizzles with great Mexican... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of For Love of the Game. Supposedly, just before you die, your entire life flashes before your eyes. Something similar happens to aging baseball pitcher Billy Chapel (Kevin Costner) in the aptly named, FOR LOVE OF THE GAME. Throwing what may well be his last game, his entire life flashes by him as he struggles with over-... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Godsend. To paraphrase Joyce Kilmer's famous poem, boys are made by fools like me, but only Dr. Wells can make a copy. GODSEND, a science fiction horror movie with a single idea (cloning), is directed lamely by Nick Hamm, whose last film was the equally inept THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU (internationally titled ... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of High Crimes. HIGH CRIMES, which reunites KISS THE GIRLS's Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, is an entertaining mystery and thriller by director Carl Franklin (ONE FALSE MOVE). Set during a military trial that sometimes resembles a kangaroo court, the story is filled with devilish machinations and partially ... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Mulan. MULAN, which we saw being developed in Disney's Florida studios, is the first Disney animated movie produced on the East Coast. The animators we talked with said that they relished the creative freedom that being so far removed from corporate headquarters afforded them. And, as in any skunkworks, ... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Beautiful. BEAUTIFUL isn't. A lifeless, mean-spirited film, it arrives DOA at your local theater today. Advertised as a comedy, the picture, thanks to Sally's Field's inept direction and Jon Bernstein's dull script, is, instead, a depressing drama. With beauty pageants as its subject, BEAUTIFUL should have ... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Bats. In Louis Morneau's BATS, these unnecessarily maligned creatures are noshing on the residents of Gallop, Texas -- not that you'll care. A direct rip-off of THE BIRDS, although without any of its suspense and with no improvements in the special effects over Hitchcock's 1963 classic, this cheap-looking... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Casa de los babys. John Sayles's CASA DE LOS BABYS is a preachy story about six neurotic, American women: Skipper (Daryl Hannah), Nan (Marcia Gay Harden), Gayle (Mary Steenburgen), Leslie (Lili Taylor), Jennifer (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Eileen (Susan Lynch). They are all getting cranky, having spent a couple of months ... more

CARANDIRU, by director Hector Babenco (THE KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN and IRONWEED), is a harrowing movie, based on a true story, set and filmed in a real Brazilian prison.

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Empire. "For everybody -- everybody! -- money is what life is all about," Vic Rosa (John Leguizamo) lectures us in voice-over in one of his many pedantic sermons.

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Crazy/Beautiful. Sometimes acceptance isn't a good idea. Congressman Tom Oakley (Bruce Davison) has learned to "accept" (read "give up on") his messed-up, 17-year-old daughter Nicole, even though he admits that she's destructive, volatile and angry. As the almost always wasted Nicole, Kirsten Dunst turns in a gut-... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Crash. CRASH, a movie set ironically during the Christmas season, would have much more aptly been called RACE, as its large and talented cast chews up the scenery, packing every sentence with some racial insult. A funny and sometimes downright hilarious movie, RACE, I mean CRASH, is directed and co-written... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of Beauty Shop. No matter how many jokes about big booties BEAUTY SHOP tosses at us, it's nothing more than BARBER SHOP LITE. As the story starts, Gina Norris (Queen Latifah) is the best stylist in a very upscale cuttery run by the flamboyant Jorge Christophe. With long curly hair and a really cheesy accent, ... more

SteveRhodes wrote a review of I Heart Huckabees. Painfully unfunny, I HEART HUCKABEES is a ridiculous mess of a movie by David O. Russell.
