  • Bad Grandpa (R)

    A foot-long scrotum hanging out of an old man's briefs turns out to be the enduring image from this anemic bad-taste comedy, starring Johnny Knoxville in octogenarian disguise and directed by Jackass veteran Jeff Tremaine. more...
  • Bad Santa (R)

    After the remarkable one-two punch of Crumb and Ghost World, Terry Zwigoff eases into the mainstream with this R-rated holiday comedy (2003) about an alcoholic thief (Billy Bob Thornton) working as a department store Santa. more...
  • Bad Santa 2
  • Bad Santa 2 (R)

    Terry Zwigoff's Bad Santa (2003) was breathtaking in its ugliness, a bucket of green diarrhea flung across the virgin snow; its hateful hero (Billy Bob Thornton), a department-store Santa given to wine, women, and larceny, was supposedly redeemed by his fatherly regard for an adoring, misfit child (Brett Kelly), but I never really bought it. more...
  • Bad Teacher (R)

    Cameron Diaz stars as a booze-slamming, pot-smoking, gold-digging middle school teacher in the Chicago public school system. more...

  • Bad Words (R)

    A 40-year-old troublemaker (Jason Bateman) takes advantage of a legal loophole to enter a nationwide spelling bee, dragging along a freaky journalist who's writing a magazine story about him (Kathryn Hahn) and doing his best to corrupt a lonely Indian-American tyke (Rohan Chand) who's entered in the competition. more...

  • Before I Go to Sleep (R)

    Afflicted with a form of amnesia that exists only in the movies, a middle-aged woman (Nicole Kidman) loses her memory each night and wakes up thinking she's still in her mid-20s. more...
  • Before Midnight (R)

    The young lovers of Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004) return, but now they're middle-aged parents; in fact, this third installment in the beloved indie series opens with a near parody of its endless walk-and-talks in which the characters (Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke) drive through the Greek countryside hoping their two little girls in the backseat won't wake up. more...
  • Begin Again
  • Begin Again (R)

    John Carney's cult favorite Once (2006) took a thin love story and filled it out with magical scenes of musical improvisation and discovery; this follow-up works the same way, its soft-rock bonhomie prevailing over a story that often registers as trite or naive. more...
  • Being Flynn (R)

    If you can tolerate the studied ethereality of Paul Dano, you may consider this tale of dashed dreams a real return to form for writer-director Paul Weitz (About a Boy). more...

  • Bel Ami (R)

    This forgettable adaptation of the Guy de Maupassant novel has one clever idea going for it: the vain, social-climbing antihero is played by Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson, whose instant celebrity mirrors that of the character. more...
