    Overblown and stupefyingly dull.

    Absolutely nothing funny happens during their drive to Georgetown for an interview, even with Donny Osmond along for the ride.

    The movie not only indicts the country's embrace of capitalism by showing how low people will sink to make money, it also denigrates the agrarian class--once celebrated as heroic under Mao--by portraying its members as illiterate barbarians concerned only with continuing their family lines.

    The kids are impressively plucky, but Weihenmayer comes off as an egomaniac, arguing with his team and endangering the youngsters' lives. Lucy Walker directed this cloying and manipulative 2006 documentary.

    Al Pacino chews up so much scenery it's surprising there's any left by the end of this fetid thriller.

    Andy and Larry Wachowski barrel through this adaptation of the 60s animated series, hoping perhaps that no one will notice the story is as flat as roadkill.

    Wahlberg turns in one of his worst performances ever, but then he's saddled with preposterous scenes.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    This Mike Myers vehicle exemplifies American comedy's continuing slide into infantilism.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    For a movie about the undead, this lacks any supernatural chills, and by the time its obligatory final showdown arrives, it seems as hollow as the terra cotta soldiers brought to life by CGI.

    Paul Bartel's "Death Race 2000" is a beloved camp item, but this slick, loud, violent remake is pitched at the video game crowd.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    The little heroes and their families are surprisingly ugly, with faces resembling skulls, and the colors are so faded and muddy the movie feels tired and bungled.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Ryan, barely refining her "When Harry Met Sally" persona, is a dud; Annette Bening, playing the best friend who sells her out to a tabloid, is better in the scenes she doesn't share with her.

    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    With artifice as layered as the tiers of a marzipan cake, this resembles nothing so much as a stale Rock Hudson-Doris Day comedy.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    To call this Kevin James comedy fatuous might be misinterpreted as an attack on the star's girth--so how about inane, tepid, lazy, puerile, phony, and unfunny?
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Costars John Cleese, Jean Reno, Alfred Molina, Andy Garcia, and Jeremy Irons look either bored or desperate, gasping for laughs in an airless screenplay.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Too slavish in its devotion to 50s sci-fi conventions to work as parody or camp, this indie comedy by "The X-Files" alumnus R.W. Goodwin sinks under the weight of its homage.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Director Paul Morrison forfeits any meaningful statement about art for a pedestrian coming-out story, based in part on Dali's unreliable, self-aggrandizing memoirs.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    The high school is so sanitized that there are no drugs, cutthroat competition, or--inconceivably for a theatrical milieu--no gay students.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Allen Coulter (Hollywoodland) directed this morose and sluggish drama, which gets more mileage from Pattinson's anguished profile than from Will Fetters's thunderously overwritten screenplay.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Inexplicably, Butler continues to get work in romantic comedies despite his limited range and boorish persona.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Loosely adapted from Alex Flinn's young-adult novel, this "Beauty and the Beast" update is a pallid, formulaic teen romance that might have benefited from a little snark.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Bob DeRosa and Ted Griffin wrote the script, whose plummeting one-liners leave no actor unscathed.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    With its hypnotic pacing, blatantly nonsynchronous sound, clunky robot costumes, and graphic but unconvincing violence, the movie falls flatly between camp and art-house pretension.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Even likable star Zach Braff can't salvage this clunker.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Pretentious and dull, this Uruguayan exercise in magical realism takes place during the annual carnival in Montevideo.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    It's not scary because not one second is believable.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    This bloated 2006 historical epic flatlines early and never regains a pulse.
    • 69 Metascore

    Although their love is undeniably a blessing, I was disconcerted watching the elderly couple smile and chuckle today as they recall their daily letters and secret meetings in the midst of such wide-scale death.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Cringe-inducing when it's not cliched, this brassy, vulgar 2008 comedy from Australia mines mental disabilities for laughs.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Years on the Hannah Montana TV series have not adequately prepared Miley Cyrus for screen acting.
