How She Does It

Sarah Jessica Parker stars as a woman who has it all.
STEVE STEWARD
In our post-Oprah era, the overachieving mother who balances a high-profile job with keeping a perfect house and happy marriage should make for a fairly interesting film, one in which the compulsions to get everything 100 perce...


Super: Frank’s Last Shot

This movie is not Kick-Ass. It’s an intriguing, flawed latecomer.
KRISTIAN LIN
It’s a chestnut, but it does bear repeating: Sometimes getting there first matters most. The comic-book satire Super reaches us about a year after Kick-Ass did, and it definitely comes off looking late to the superhero costum...

I wish the Sex and the City movie had been a musical, with our four favorite fashion plates addressing their relationship problems by bursting into song and dance.



Ex Games

A Segel takes flight in Hawaii when he tries Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Kristian Lin
Last year, Hot Fuzz came out in the third week of April and turned out to be the funniest comedy of 2007.


Carter’s Malaise

A first-time filmmaker can’t spin a good story In the Land of Women.
Kristian Lin
I have a hard time looking at Meg Ryan right now. There are a few shots in her latest film, In the Land of Women, where she looks recognizably like the same actress who starred in Sleepless in Seattle.
