  • Fans of Pine's eyebrows will enjoy all the bushy furrowing, but otherwise, there are more important things to cry about. Full Review

  • The performances, especially Ms. Banks's Frankie and Ms. Pfeiffer's Lillian, partly compensate for the holes in a story whose timing is hard to swallow. Full Review

  • I like smart movies about smart people, and enjoy it when most of the facts are on the table and we can contemplate them together. Full Review

  • Alex Kurtzman's debut feature can emotionally manipulate you before the narrative house of cards collapses and things go from sweet-and-sour to full-on NutraSweet. Full Review
