    • 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.

    • 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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Be warned: The end credits contain a particularly nauseating image you'll wish you could delete from memory.
    • 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.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The slim story gets swamped by the stunning visuals.
    • 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.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Even the inclusion of Simon's classic songs isn't enough to solve all the problems of this comedic misfire.
    • 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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    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.
    • 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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The characters are mostly flat and unoriginal -- - but Pfeiffer delivers a wonderfully villainous voice performance.
