  • Reaches breathtaking lows of incoherence, sexism, racial stereotyping, and -- did I say incoherence? show more

  • If physical appearance creates its own class system (in high school and beyond), then Qualls is perfect for this proselytizing role. He has that rarest of movie-star faces -- one that over comes the tyranny of beauty. show more

  • The New Guy doesn't have a new idea in its head, but it trods over the old ground with such wit and heart that its lack of originality can be overlooked, if not entirely forgiven. show more
