"SEX AND THE CITY has always been about the bond among women. At its best, the movie shows why that bond sticks."Rolling Stone "For a film that delights in indulging in frivolity at every possible turn, it examines subjects that most movies don't dare graze for their terrifying seriousness. And when it does, the movie handles them with surprising grace, wit and maturity."Los Angeles Times "It gives you everything you ever loved about the series, and blows it out into super-size cinematic proportions. The drama is more dramatic, the stakes are higher, and the relationships more intense."Premiere 3 stars out of 4 -- "It's an unabashed guilty pleasure that goes down as smoothly as a chilled cosmo."USA Today "THE MOVIE replicates everything that's great about the TV show, in particular its breathless flitting between relationship realities and romantic wish-fulfillment."Empire10.27751

"[T]he most potent dimension of THE U.S. VS. JOHN LENNON is the way it captures the contradictory romanticism of Lennon the radical." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly "When it concentrates on the particulars of Lennon's activism and on Nixon's apparent obsession with him, the film offers its clearest window on the past."New York Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "The film is loaded with testimony and talking heads....Lennon's spirit, like his music, shines through this movie like a beacon. Powerful stuff."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] engaging documentary....The film also serves as a gripping trawl through Lennon's later life in music."Total Film "[The interviews] are woven together with neat rostrum camerawork and a pulsating soundtrack. Yoko heads an impressive cast of interviewees..."Sight and Sound "[T]he massive cast of interviewees and a certain relevance to the current political climate make it much more than a nostalgic stroll down Penny Lane."Film Comment 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his entertaining and involving pop culture history lesson is hugely enjoyable stuff."Ultimate DVD7.374811

3 stars out of 5 -- "Morgan clearly has a deep affection for the source material and its protagonist while, as clough, Sheen hits screamers into the back of the net pretty much every time he's on screen."Total Film "Sheen's typically scrupulous channeling of Clough gets the tics and mannerisms right, but also carves a moving portrait of a braggart suddenly out of his depth....Period styling throughout is on the money..."Variety "[The film] has an authentic aroma of English football in the Seventies....Michael Sheen nails his charismatic swagger; Colm Meaney is especially good as the mirthless Revie..."Film Comment "[T]his is historical fiction that continues Morgan's intriguing inquiry into the uses and abuses of power and how personalities get distorted by a taste of fame or success."Hollywood Reporter 3 stars out of 4 -- "Well-made, with a seamless interweaving of archival footage, THE DAMNED UNITED is a straightforward character study. What vaults the film above the standard sports movie is the stellar performance by Michael Sheen."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It skillfully uses some archival footage, which evokes the pitch of feeling during a match."Chicago Sun-Times "THE DAMNED UNITED shares with THE QUEEN and FROST/NIXON not only a writer and a star, but also a precise and satisfying sense of proportion."New York Times "It's no accident that Sheen displays some of the same incisive understanding of human inconsistency and political strategy that he demonstrated in THE QUEEN and FROST/NIXON: Peter Morgan wrote all three screenplays..."Entertainment Weekly "It's more than a detailed account of one man's petty vindictiveness in a bygone era. It's about how our hatred can consume us so deeply that we lose sight of everything."Washington Post0.3421391
