The latest reviews from the Guardian Unlimited are listed here. 

Minor Mishaps
Philip French: The characters are a little tiresome, but not dislikable, and the events predictable, tending to contradict Tolstoy's dictum about unhappy families
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Philip French:'s a poorly drilled parade of clichés familiar from pictures about force-of-life immigrants running ethnic restaurants
New Guy
Philip French: ...incoherent and entirely unfunny
Road to Perdition
Philip French: This is all familiar stuff... But Mendes and the veteran cinematographer Conrad Hall, who has a special eye for the infinite sadness of the America landscape, make it all new, if self-consciously so
Philip French: A tapestry of loose ends, the movie is, in effect, a teenage reworking of Fatal Attraction with the added frisson that Christensen, the crazed femme fatale, played Michael Douglas's wayward daughter in Traffic
