Son-In-law (1993)

Son-in-Law's only real surprise is that it's so much better than it has to be. Of course, you have to be expecting the worst in order to be pleasantly surprised. And the surprise is not really ...

Sonatine (1993, 94 min., R)

In a traditional gangster movie, the phrase, “This means all-out war” triggers a very specific set of expectations about what's to follow. But Japanese director Takeshi “Beat” Kitano doesn't truck with conventional wiseguy dramas. So, while ...

Songcatcher (2000, 105 min., PG-13)

The Appalachian music that propels Songcatcher sounds sweet as honey, but the non-musical aspects of this independent film smell an awful lot like pork product. Songcatcher is as hammy as they come, its characters laden with ...

Sorority Boys (2002, 94 min., R)

The filmmakers would have us believe that their new cross-dressing comedy Sorority Boys is Some Like It Hot by way of Animal House. The truth is something more like Bosom Buddies by way of American Pie. ...

Things go badly when these sorority sisters try to cover up a prank gone wrong and a serial killer enters the fray.

Soul Food (1997, 115 min., R)

Soul Food is another way of saying: Family values, African-American style. The film is a warm and comic melodrama about family ties and the tribulations of sticking together. When family matriarch and fount of perpetual wisdom ...

Soul in the Hole (1997, 90 min., NR)

Though it's often used in connection with teams like Tom Penders' Texas Runnin' Horns, the term “playground basketball” doesn't necessarily refer to chaotic, brick-heaving, clearout-and-chuck trashball. In fact, when a great passer like New York playground ...

Soul Survivors (2001, 85 min., PG-13)

If you're like me, you probably caught the trailer for Soul Survivors almost a year ago when it first (and only) popped up in theatre preview reels. Shot roughly two years back, Steve Carpenter's teen-lite riff ...

Sound and Fury (2000, 80 min., NR)

The sound of fury can be remarkably quiet. In the new documentary Sound and Fury, which debuted at Sundance, it's the sound of hands flying in impassioned, ASL-signed debate. The furor here is over the cochlear ...

Sound of My Voice (2012, 84 min., R)

This festival favorite marks an impressive film debut for its director and star, but its sum total is less satisfying than its parts.

Sound of Noise (2010, 102 min., R)

Unique to a fault, this Swedish film is a daft police procedural and an absurdist comedy about musical terrorists.

A Sound of Thunder (2005, 102 min., PG-13)
