    Bummer, dudes. Longtime fans who expect the fun lingo and pizza-gobbling Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of the past may be shocked by director Kevin Munroe's reimagining of the popular kiddie series.

    Bynes is a charmer who adeptly straddles the line between romantic heroine and physical comedienne, while Firth is extremely enjoyable as a befuddled father.

    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.

    Favors light action over character dynamics.

    But for those jonesing for a loosely connected string of comedy sketches, heavy on the scatological humor, this is the fix.

    Katey and Javier's dramatically expedient relationship is nowhere near as interesting as the Cuban Revolution, which is relegated to window dressing.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    A series of outrageous situations and generally manages to walk the thin line between poking fun at racial stereotypes and reinforcing them.

    This is director Luc Besson's first attempt at combining animation with live-action, and while the look of the film is impressive, he should have focused more of his efforts on fleshing out the script that he adapted from two of his own "Arthur" books.

    Basic knowledge of the original series is mandatory, but the more familiar you are, the more glaring this movie's considerable deficiencies will seem.

    It may be nearly 40 years past due, but it was worth the wait.

    DMX delivers a surprisingly solid and convincing performance, but he's easily overshadowed by the very talented Ealy, who makes his secondary character truly memorable.

    Objection! Actors of Julianne Moore and Pierce Brosnan's caliber should not be subjected to playing bland and distasteful characters in mediocre romantic comedies.

    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.

    It's an enjoyable ride.
    • 38 Metascore

    The cast is eclectic and talented, but their roles are two-dimensional and the is-it-or-isn't-it-satirical? tone ensures that their performances never seem properly pitched.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Angel Cohn
    The concept is cute and the movie starts out well, but it devolves into a muddled, overstuffed mess that wears out its welcome around the time the novelty of 3-D effects wears off.

    All the money in the world couldn't have saved actress-turned-filmmaker Troy Beyer's lewd, obnoxious, product placement-laden remake of the sweet and simple romantic comedy "Can't Buy Me Love."
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Alba, constantly sporting off-the-shoulder tops a la "Flashdance," brings no depth of feeling to her character, and her average -- often wooden -- moves make it hard to believe she's a uniquely talented hoofer and sought-after choreographer.

    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.

    Even the inclusion of Simon's classic songs isn't enough to solve all the problems of this comedic misfire.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The bad news is that the racing scenes are repetitive and it takes some serious concentration to figure out which character belongs to what club.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The unique musical ending is worth the wait.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Offers up more of everything: more bloody zombie dogs, more crazy corporate evildoers, more Milla Jovovich unclothed and more over-the-top action scenes.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 34 Metascore

    It's notoriously difficult to balance lighthearted humor with the spookiness a good ghost story requires, but director Rob Minkoff is surprisingly successful, delivering a satisfying mix of laughs and mild scares aimed at a young audience.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Angel Cohn
    Ironically, one of the film's best-developed characters is a mouse: The four-legged "Chizzler" actually has a legitimate story arc with a genuine payoff.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Angel Cohn
    All the conditioner in the world couldn't make it shine.
    • 34 Metascore

    Undeniably entertaining.

    The poorly executed scenes in which Duff's singing voice was clearly post-dubbed and her own lack of emotional range keep the film from rising to whatever potential it may have had.
