    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Delivers 90 minutes of riotously funny raunch; unfortunately, its running time is closer to two hours.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    It's enjoyable and profoundly unlikely to make a lasting impression on anyone.
    • 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
    The only bright spots are Cavanagh's easy charm about him and Cumming's performance as Grody -- he's much more believable as a straight man than Graham is as a gay woman.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    A barrage of pop-culture jokes, time-travel high jinks and plucky orphans that's as confusing as it sounds, and riddled with plot holes to boot.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The original Carly Simon songs are well performed, but their soothing lullaby qualities may cause those with short attention spans to nod off.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Undeniably entertaining.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Hudson and Wilson share a natural and easy chemistry that helps compensate for the Cuban-mobster subplot.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Unfortunately, the emotionally resonant moments between Murphy and Fanning are few and far between; the rest of the film relies on goofy physical comedy -- Murphy takes more pratfalls that any young woman should have to.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Should have been pared down into an episode of the series.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Fraser's goofiness matches that of the animated characters and he cheerfully pokes fun at his celebrity persona, while Elfman is oddly appealing as a strong woman who must seek help from a wascally wabbit.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The film founders during a series of uncomfortable scenes involving Biggs and DeVito, whose performance verges on painful caricature, but Ricci is adorable and delivers Allen's sharp dialogue with real flare.
    • 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 bizarrely entertaining relationship that blossoms between Sciorra and Piven is far more amusing and convincing, which only underscores the lack of chemistry between the dewy leads.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The charismatic Mac has stepped into leading man roles with surprising ease, but Bassett -- a fine actress in all respects -- is clearly struggling with the film's broad comedy.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Keaton and Holmes have some sweet father-daughter moments and the supporting cast gives its all.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Here the message -- it's not nice to ridicule, mistreat or ignore people just because they're different -- verges on the oppressive; more of the Farrellys' trademark over-the-top comedy would have lightened the load.
    • 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.
    • 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."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Scene-stealing cameos by Matt Damon and Lucy Lawless and the very catchy pop song that becomes a leitmotif for Scotty's pain are among its less-raunchy (comparatively speaking) highlights.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The frat brothers have some surprisingly touching moments, and their diverse but perfectly matched personalities generate a fairly steady stream of laugh-out-loud moments.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    A pretty little package whose perfect, fairy-tale ending is just a little too neat, the film's colorful wrapping includes veteran actress Carol Kane's bizarre but enjoyable performance as the school's uptight drama teacher.
    • 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.
