The Other Woman

A generic message movie that wastes good talent


Drama

Rod Lott
Don Roos’ “The Other Woman” starts on a real high note: a photo montage of a most adorable newborn baby, set to tune of The Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??”

One Day


Drama

Phil Bacharach
“One Day” turns on a gimmick, chronicling the tumultuous, on-again/ off-again romance of two people by dropping in on them the same date — July 15 — each year. It’s a clever device, if not enough to disguise the fact that otherwise, this tearjerker is as old-fashioned as they come.

The Descendants

Say ‘aloha’ to a smart film about a fractured family.


Drama

Rod Lott
Once the Oscar contender to beat — until The Artist swooped in and did just that — The Descendants is the oddest kind of road movie: one in which the roads don’t exist at all. The travels undertaken by George Clooney’s harried, married Matt King character in this dramedy are done so mostly via plane, as he criss-crosses three of Hawaii’s eight islands in search of a stranger he doesn’t want to face, but stalks with great determination nonetheless.
