NEW YORK – "Laws of Attraction," "Mean Girls," "Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius," "Envy" and "Godsend" hit theaters this weekend in today's Foxlight.
Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore play dueling lawyers in "Laws of Attraction," (search) and some are calling them the new Hepburn and Tracy. That's a bigger stretch than Louie Anderson's ski pants. They're much better than the material -- a script so lame they should hire each other and sue.
Next, the New York Post knows harsh, and they say "Mean Girls" (search) isn't mean enough. Just two stars for the Lindsay Lohan teen comedy. Others call it the new "Heathers" from "Saturday Night Live" news babe Tina Fey.
How do you follow up playing Christ? "The Passion of the Christ" (search) star Jim Caviezel is the legendary duffer in "Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius." He sure looks a lot happier with these woods.
Jack Black and Ben Stiller deserve better from director Barry Levinson in "Envy." That's the consensus from nearly every review that says you can save your green on this one. Black invents something you spray on dog poo to make it disappear. Critics wanted a can of the stuff to spray at the screen.
Finally, New York Times says "Godsend" (search) "Will leave you wondering how they managed to squander such a sensational premise."
That creepy premise is this: If your child died, would you clone it? Dr. Robert De Niro thinks it's a good idea for parents Greg Kinnear and Rebecca Rojimn-Stamos. They should have gotten a second opinion.
