    The set-up is tediously slow, while the later murders are packed so tightly it's like watching a blender on high speed.

    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.

    Not a movie, just one gigantic commercial for Hasbro.
    • 24 Metascore

    With artifice as layered as the tiers of a marzipan cake, this resembles nothing so much as a stale Rock Hudson-Doris Day comedy.

    Pretentious and dull, this Uruguayan exercise in magical realism takes place during the annual carnival in Montevideo.
    • 60 Metascore

    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.

    Even likable star Zach Braff can't salvage this clunker.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    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.

    Cowriters Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (Gladiator) saddle Neeson with indigestible dialogue and preposterous situations.
    • 35 Metascore

    The story unfolds briskly in the polished mode of a classic horror movie, then tanks after a plot twist at the midpoint alters the mood and slows the pace. Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father) directed an ill-conceived screenplay that could have worked only as camp.

    Josh Duhamel plays the smitten sports reporter who helps her mount her big art show, "Pain"--a fitting title, given the agony induced by this godawful comedy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Overblown and stupefyingly dull.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Bob DeRosa and Ted Griffin wrote the script, whose plummeting one-liners leave no actor unscathed.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    As usual, Cage alternates between leaden line readings and thunderous outbursts, making his accomplished costars Ulrich Thomsen and Stephen Campbell Moore look even better.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    The dialogue is often grating, and some of the situations are distastefully cute, although John Carroll Lynch (Fargo) has a strong supporting turn as a grief workshop client.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Too low-key and amiable to match the lubriciousness Jim Carrey brought to the original.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    The resulting mix of hagiography and war epic is so muddled that characters keep addressing each other by their first names, the better to tell them apart.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Throughout most of her career Diane Keaton has shown sound instincts, so it's a mystery why she failed to sniff this false, brittle comedy out as a waste of her gifts.
    • 72 Metascore

    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.
    • 27 Metascore

    In middle age Jackie Chan can't keep coasting on boyish charm, as evidenced by this dreadful family comedy that does him no favors with its opening title sequence.
    • 23 Metascore

    A more helpful title for this date movie would have been Couples, Retreat!
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    This Mike Myers vehicle exemplifies American comedy's continuing slide into infantilism.
    • 29 Metascore

    "Soppy" doesn't begin to describe this 2004 drama by Quentin Lee.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Andrea Gronvall
    Grating romantic comedy.
