Top Five

Current movies recommended by the Times.

1. Legally Blonde _ Want to see a star rising? Check out Reese Witherspoon's perfectly measured performance in a comedy that would be nothing without her.

2. The Score _ The cast is all you need to know: Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando, Angela Bassett, Edward Norton. This isn't a movie; it's a hall of acting fame.

3. America's Sweethearts _ If it's summer, it's time for a Julia Roberts romantic comedy. She's the publicist coming between married movie stars (John Cusack, Catherine Zeta-Jones).

4. Moulin Rouge _ You'll love and hate Baz Luhrmann's film, sometimes during the same scene. Gaudy, bawdy and always kinetic, even when the material gets stale.

5. A.I. Artificial Intelligence _ Steven Spielberg's version of Stanley Kubrick's vision isn't perfect, but it's a worthwhile event for cinephiles. Great performance by Haley Joel Osment as a robotic Pinocchio.
