    Cassavetes' film is unusually well-acted and lovely to look at, but his wholehearted embrace of saccharine melodrama and tendency to let scenes ramble on long after their point has been expressed makes for some slow going.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Though positioned as a female buddy comedy, this uneven and overly busy comedy is more focused on the romantic travails of Vardalos and Duchovny, who's very nearly a carbon copy of her love interest in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Although superficially an odd couple, the outspoken Barr and the restrained Dench work together surprisingly well and a steady stream of jokes aimed at both adults and kids keeps this genial entertainment galloping along at a brisk pace.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Only Lynch's over-the-top network executive stands out in this otherwise bland film that tries for satire but neglects to be funny.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Keaton and Holmes have some sweet father-daughter moments and the supporting cast gives its all.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    But for those jonesing for a loosely connected string of comedy sketches, heavy on the scatological humor, this is the fix.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Brian Robbins (Varsity Blues) actually has a clear sense of the way 21st-century teenagers behave, and his sleek style keeps the film moving briskly.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The film makes no real impression; it's amiable, occasionally funny and indistinguishable from dozens of other romantic comedies just like it.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    It's enjoyable and profoundly unlikely to make a lasting impression on anyone.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The supporting cast's comic abilities smooth over many -- if not all -- of the movie's flaws.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Fans may be disappointed that some of the show's secondary characters, like Lizzie's pal Miranda, are AWOL from this Prince and the Pauper-style escapade, and some of the scenes involving Gellman are disappointingly flat.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The young stars have considerable natural chemistry and do their best to make the rehashed material approachable and entertaining while maintaining their kid-friendly images.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    While the film has striking moments, it feels padded with events that seem freighted with narrative weight but end up not mattering at all to the story.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Its real liability is on the special effects front: The sub-par digital effects — particularly in the scenes featuring poisonous lizards — detract noticeably from the overall atmosphere.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The pre-credits sequence, featuring a variety of old-school snack treats performing a speed-metal number about courteous movie-theater behavior, is flat-out hilarious and deserves to be played before all R-rated films.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Swings wildly between heartstring-tugging melodrama, testosterone-fueled action and buddy comedy.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Delivers 90 minutes of riotously funny raunch; unfortunately, its running time is closer to two hours.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Most of the occasional chuckles are provided by the spunky York, who really gives Diesel a run for his money.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    For most of the film, Cedric seems to be holding back, though his relationship with genuinely charming rapper-turned-actor (Lil') Bow Wow offers up a few funny moments.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The film's utterly predictable dialogue and plot developments will leave most viewers cold. Ice-struck preteens are, of course, the exceptions.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Only those who really love the Bug will be willing to put up with the loose plot and over-the-top action scenes.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Freighted with far more serious issues than most movies of its kind but neglects or glosses over most of them.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The kids, especially the Breslin siblings, are cute. Cusack is underused, but makes her annoying, potpourri-loving suburban mom seem sympathetic. And Corbett is well-cast as an eminently suitable, if slightly dull, life mate for the newly grown-up Helen.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The CGI is well-done, but Garfield's presence among the otherwise live cast is a constant distraction.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Bart the Bear shows more versatility in his gender-bending role than Lillard, who trots out his old, tired slacker shtick.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    While Aiken couldn't be cuter or more-well suited for his earnest role, the script is utterly predictable and often falls into the saccharine trap. The pooches add a little life to this otherwise lackluster effort.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The filmmakers seem to have meant to offer up a spiritual message about community and faith, but it's muddled and hard to find with romance, comedy and phenomenal gospel performances all fighting for the spotlight.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Ultimately Stokes remains true to his music video roots and relies on the film's flashy voltage dance scenes and frenetic pacing to keep viewers' attention from wandering.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Just like many real-life holiday get-togethers with the family, this comedy starts out pleasantly enough but degenerates into awkwardness and furtive watch-checking to see how much longer you have to suffer before you can leave.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Good-natured but overstuffed sequel.
