    The unique musical ending is worth the wait.

    • 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.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Swings wildly between heartstring-tugging melodrama, testosterone-fueled action and buddy comedy.
    • 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    But while the material is interesting, it's not substantial enough to sustain a feature-length treatment.

    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.

    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Braff and Bateman have a good, darkly comic chemistry, but there aren't nearly enough moments like the brutally funny, "Murderball"-style wheelchair basketball game to sustain the entire film.

    Most of the occasional chuckles are provided by the spunky York, who really gives Diesel a run for his money.
    • 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Despite the sluggish opening, Kutcher and Bernie Mac ensure that this predictably plotted comedy of preposterous misunderstandings is occasionally quite funny.
    • 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.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Favors light action over character dynamics.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Filled with tremendous stunts and well-shot racing sequences, director Steve Boyum's loud, down-and-dirty ride through the world of Supercross motorcycle racing comes to a screeching halt for its many pit stops for Hollywood clichés.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Combining an interracial friendship with an age-old love story is certainly a worthy idea, but this poorly executed film is riddled with every cliché in the book and then some.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The story is a bit predictable and the characters given to restating the obvious (presumably for the benefit of very young viewers), but overall this third Pokemon sequel is surprisingly entertaining.
    • 52 Metascore

    For all the bad press Ishtar received, it does have a certain odd charm... The biggest problem is that any attempted subtlety is swamped by May's bid to turn the film into an epic adventure story.
    • 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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The characters are mostly flat and unoriginal -- - but Pfeiffer delivers a wonderfully villainous voice performance.
    • 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.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The slim story gets swamped by the stunning visuals.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    This heist flick is far more likely to drive audiences away than catch and keep anyone's interest in the title kid -- or more accurately, kids.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    While the hand-drawn animation is visually appealing, the story is completely predictable and Phil Collins's music lacks the impact of his Oscar-winning "Tarzan" tunes.
    • 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
    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.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The cliched plot and unconvincing action sequences -- don't blend well with the comic scenes and make the film look painfully cheap.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Given that most fans are very young, ignoring a key aspect of the Pokemon mythos is bound to confuse and disappoint them.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
