Below are reviews of selected Florida Film Festival movies by Sentinel Movie Critic Roger Moore. The films are listed alphabetically.

Alien Trespass -- 2 of 5 stars

a monster movie that tries to recreate the slick, silly B-movies of the Eisenhower era

American Swing: 4 of 5 stars

The Answer Man -- 4 of 5 stars

John Hindman variation on As Good as It Gets.

to dream past 50, to keep rocking when they're "too old to rock'n roll, but too young to die" is the feel-good message of Sacha Gervais' cute if predictable documentary

Art & Copy -- 2 of 5 stars

Doug Pray packs his overlong and repetitive film with self-celebratory ad folks trotting out their greatest hit
