Deuce Bigalow - Male Gigolo (1999)
Insanely funny!
 The film has no energy, no laughs, no purpose.
  (Shawn Levy, Portland Oregonian)
 Makes There's Something About Mary look like Masterpiece Theatre.
  (Kendall Morgan, Dallas Morning News)
 Stupid and horrible.
  (Bruce Kirkland, Toronto Sun)
 American Gigolo remade for laughs, by and for cretins. It's an ugly, crude, dismally unfunny redneck comedy. The movie sneers at the blind, people with prosthetic limbs, fat people - you name the disability, it's probably in there somewhere. Regrettably, the 15 certificate is unlikely to prevent it from reaching its target audience of 13 year-old boys who may conceivably warm to its cavalcade of would-be gags about used condoms, flatulence and attacks of diarrhoea.

The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)
A terrific science fiction epic! Riddick is here to stay!
 A noisy, chaotic, over-serious mess.
  (Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall)
 A monotonous series of hard-to-follow brawls in dark caves and corridors.
 (Edward Porter, Sunday Times)
 All hardware, indifferent special effects, bone-crunching video-game violence and mythic pomposity.
  (Philip French, Observer)
 (Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
We Were Soldiers (2002)
Truly a Must-see!
Maid in Manhattan (2002)
The ideal and perfect movie for the holidays!!
National Security (2003)
A comedy not to be missed.
Twisted (2004)
Stylish, with a shocking ending! Twisted keeps you guessing!
Leatherheads (2008)
Funny! A winner!
