Special To The TimesNew releases: "Stuart Little 2" (PG)--Stuart Little has a death-defying adventure and his first romance in this handsomely wrought sequel, a neat blend of live action and computer animation, based again on characters from E.B. White's classic. Tots and...

Times Staff WriterEarly on in Stephen Fry's riotous "Bright Young Things," an angel on the deck of a steamship vomits on a young man's head. The young man is Adam Symes (Stephen Campbell Moore), a penniless but well-connected novelist whose fortunes flip like flapjacks,...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday June 9, 2000 Writing musical theater was not an option for William Shakespeare, but Kenneth Branagh hasn't let that trouble him. He's turned Shakespeare's "Love's Labour's Lost" into a 1930s-style romantic musical comedy, garnished with retro...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 7, 2000 Even in an age of relentless branding, calling a new family fantasy "Disney's The Kid" is a bit unnerving. Was there a worry about confusing eager crowds who might be expecting a re-release of the classic 1921 Charlie Chaplin-...

Nominations for the 2003 Independent Spirit Awards were announced Wednesday with "Lovely and Amazing," Nicole Holofocener's bittersweet comedy about mothers, daughters and sisters, leading the way with six nominations, while Todd Haynes' lush 1950s...
Nicole Holofcener's sharp and delicate observations of relationships are the antithesis to that so-synthetic-it-causes-skin-rash stuff out of which most movies about women are spun. In those films-usually tagged with the condescending term "chick flick"-...
Times Staff WriterSEE CORRECTION APPENDED "Lovely & Amazing" is all but indescribable, and what a good thing that is. Like the best of personal, independent cinema--terms that too often provide cover for a multitude of sins--it is both marvelously observed and...
Times Staff WriterThe proverb goes, "Laughing bride, weeping wife. Weeping bride, laughing wife." Whatever. The lackluster "A Foreign Affair," about two American brothers from the heartland who head to Russia on a romance tour to find a wife — not for love, mind...
