    The original Carly Simon songs are well performed, but their soothing lullaby qualities may cause those with short attention spans to nod off.
    • 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.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Undeniably entertaining.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Should have been pared down into an episode of the series.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Katey and Javier's dramatically expedient relationship is nowhere near as interesting as the Cuban Revolution, which is relegated to window dressing.
    • 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.
    • 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."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    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.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The supporting cast's comic abilities smooth over many -- if not all -- of the movie's flaws.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Swings wildly between heartstring-tugging melodrama, testosterone-fueled action and buddy comedy.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Enjoyable and funny enough.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    But while the material is interesting, it's not substantial enough to sustain a feature-length treatment.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Readers hate to see their favorites messed with by filmmakers, and though devotees will notice changes from Brashares' novel -- some slight and some more substantial -- the film remains true to the book's spirit, and the deviations shouldn't alienate them.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    This cream puff of a romantic comedy is sweet enough, but lack of substance makes it deeply unsatisfying.
    • 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.
