  • Sky High

    It’s no Incredibles, but this superheroes-in-puberty comedy has a decent amount of clever ideas to balance out its uninspired look and a few dud performances. When Sky High finally settles into its teen-angst groove, it actually becomes kind of engaging. Sort of like Pretty in Pink with superpowers.

    Jamie Foxx may have an Oscar under his belt, but he still plays second banana to the dopey Josh Lucas in this high-tech action thriller. Director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious, xXx) pulls off a few impressive action scenes, but Stealth’s grim mood and Lucas’ dull lead performance eventually sink the film.

  • Must Love Dogs

    Diane Lane has a knack for making bland romances sparkle. While her sweetness is deceptively comforting, the portrayal of love after divorce here is ultimately shallow and high-glossed. Lane and John Cusack play a couple of divorcees egged on by friends and loved ones to rejoin the dating scene, via the Internet. Lane and Cusak manage some truly funny scenes, but there are too many moments that seemed canned for primetime TV.
