The Animal Another dumb comedy. Rob Schneider's behavior turns comically beastly after a mad scientist implants him with animal organs. (PG-13)

Bride of the Wind Handsome but stiff biopic about Alma Mahler (1879-1964), a Viennese beauty whose big-name husbands included composer Gustav Mahler, architect Walter Gropius and writer Franz Werfel. Painter Oskar Kokocshka was a lover. Sarah Wynter portrays Alma as a privileged brat. (R)

Bridget Jones's Diary Renée Zellweger must choose between two beaux in a swell romantic comedy. (R)

Moulin Rouge It's easy to admire director Baz Luhrmann's vision and audacity in this musical set in Paris in 1899, but his frenetic editing leaves a viewer exhausted. (PG-13)

Pearl Harbor Boring and bloated. (PG-13)

Shrek The season's best movie so far. Offers animated laughs galore. (PG)
