  • Michael Douglas digs deep and delivers one of his best performances in Wonder Boys -- a comic dazzler of roguish wit and touching gravity that is driven by characters, not jokes.

  • Lovely performances from McDormand, Downey and Richard Knox, who looks uncommonly like Little Richard, as a bar owner named Vernon Hardapple. show more

  • This is certainly the best studio movie of the new year to date, and Douglas might even be remembered at next year's Oscars. show more
