DOUBT

Plenty of DOUBT about who is telling the truth in this well acted drama. Streep & Hoffman act shine in what is essentially a play on film. But it is their great Acting that drives this film to its shattering conclusion. Unlike many of last year's over the top movies, less is more here, and it works. — Stormy Curry

THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKY’S: THE MUSICAL

Bawdy and off-color in the most wholesome way, the Broadway-bound musical THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKYS wants nothing more than to keep you entertained. Its subject matter is joy and laughter, with no trace of the angst-ridden or bittersweet. Clever, at times inspired songs and ingenious sets add heft to this bright and bouncy production, marred only by dancing that seemed a bit under-rehearsed. — Jeff Schultz

THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKY’S

With the new musical now playing, it's time to revisit the 1968 movie version of THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKYS, an amiable if sloppy evocation of the burlesque era, whose plot bears little relation to the stage incarnation. The biggest problem: it’s far too tame for its setting. Burlesque is about dick jokes and titty jiggles. This flick isn’t even mildly risque. — Jeff Schultz
