Its status as a minor-league player doesn’t diminish its capacity to entertain (doing a better job at that than some of the higher-profile alternatives).

Despite the faint whiff of sanctimoniousness that occasionally emanates from this well-meaning motion picture, "Saint Judy" generally holds its own as a solid courtroom drama.

Esoteric qualities don’t merit an unqualified recommendation for a production more apt to deliver frustration than gratification.

Intended to be a feel-good extravaganza – one that sweeps aside considerations of logic and intelligence in a tide of exuberance that crests with an emotional high.

A fresh and breezy way to steer the superhero genre and a testimony to the main character’s appeal and versatility.

Mad scientists overwhelmed by hubris are nothing new but no iteration of the story has been told in quite this way.

The cliche "it's so bad, it's good" doesn't apply here. "The Star Wars Holiday Special" isn't enjoyable on any level, campy or otherwise. It's just ugly, painful, and boring.

Deserves the derision and disdain it will receive from mainstream movie-goers nationwide.

Even the most hard-hearted viewer is likely to have an emotional reaction; this is as much a testimony to the way Cooper tells the tale as to the story itself.
