TIMES STAFF WRITERWednesday November 22, 2000 "102 Dalmatians" is 101 too many, but that's not likely to deter anyone who enjoyed the 1996 "101 Dalmatians," which in turn was a lavish live-action remake of Disney's much-loved 1961 animated classic. Still, you can't...

Times Film CriticThis is turning into Eddie Murphy's creature feature summer, but if you had to pick between the actor playing an animal or simply talking to them, "Dr. Dolittle 2" is not the film to choose. Yet even if it wasn't burdened with an addiction to...
Times Staff WriterThe movie version of "Scooby-Doo" has been hanging like a threat over the happy childhood memories of my funky '70s TV-watching habits. Like so much other pop-culture--"Star Wars," "Josie and the Pussycats," "Rocky & Bullwinkle"--would the cool crime...
Times Staff Writer"Are We There Yet?" gets nowhere. Its star Ice Cube remains characteristically amiable, but this thuddingly miscalculated comedy is way beneath him. The filmmakers clearly intend a family comedy about the lengths to which a guy who doesn't like kids will...

Eddie Murphy has another huge-grinning triumph playing the title role in "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps." And so do the seven other Eddie Murphys, all acting up a storm alongside him in this wild multiple-role showcase. Reprising his juicy, lovable...
Even if you hate Barney the Dinosaur and similar kiddie-TV vacuities to distraction, you'll probably have problems with "Death to Smoochy," a dark comedy that blows up like an exploding cigar, leaving nothing much behind but smoke, noise and a bad taste....
The success of period pieces usually depends on the fortuitous merging of key elements, ranging from the right director working with an intelligent script, to actors who are suitable not just for their individual roles, but also the distinctive tone of...
Angelina Jolie has the kind of insolent glow most of the classic bad-girl screen beauties had: Dietrich, Monroe, Bardot. But in a way, Jolie is also the James Dean of modern young female movie stars: explosive and innocent, vulnerable and scary, defiantly...
Times Staff WriterYou could call "Ice Age" "'Shrek' With Frostbite" or "'Monsters, Inc.' on Ice," and you wouldn't be far off. That's how closely this new computer-animated film duplicates and combines the plots of its predecessors. No, this tale of interspecies...
Chicago Tribune Movie Critic2-1/2 stars (out of 4) In New York City, life can be awful and work can be hell. But renting can be worse, as director Danny DeVito and stars Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore try to show in "Duplex." Can the agony of apartment-finding in today's greed-...
Chicago Tribune Staff Writer1 star (out of 4) When critics say a film is "cartoony," it's often an insult. The term has become shorthand for poorly plotted movies populated by two-dimensional characters and pumped full of superficial action and bright colors. On all counts,...
