    Although The Other Woman nibbles around the edges of revealing truths about relationships, it leaves most of that potential behind, instead pursuing easy, exhausted cliches about zip-less marriages, upper class suburban drudgery, cynical careerism and dumb-but-sweet blondes.

    One of the weaknesses of The Sitter is that Hill doesn't develop much comic chemistry with the children.

    Tammy is a bummer, not least because McCarthy’s fans know she’s better than this.

    Director Scott Hicks lavishes good taste and sunsets on a story that - devoid of genuine tension, conflict or combustible chemistry between its two stars - just prettily sits there.

    A retread of material already thoroughly plumbed by Martin Scorsese.

    The November Man turns out to be the classic August movie: a triumph of competence over imagination and schlock over taste. Its highest value lies in reminding filmgoers that fall can’t come too soon.

    Reiner assembles a square meal of rom-com pleasure points, but it’s bland, by-the-numbers and not particularly memorable.

    So cheesy and cheap that it almost attains high camp.

    Most of the humor in The Pink Panther derives from Martin's silly French accent, especially when he tries to pronounce the word "hamburger." But zat joke, she ees not funny. And The Pink Panther ees, how you say, ze real dog.

    As is true with so much of Haggis’s work, Third Person suffers from an airless, too-neat lack of connection with organic life.

    As Crossing Over makes its patronizing points, by way of two-dimensional characters and billboarded plot points, it recalls other, better movies that dealt with the same subjects far more deftly.

    Just another tepid entry into this year's Death-as-Turn-On Sweepstakes.

    An unsurprising, undistinguished piece of post-summer, pre-holiday detritus.
    • 38 Metascore

    Visually undistinguished, narratively inert, populated by a cast of charmless child actors, "Sharkboy and Lavagirl," with any luck will fade quickly from theaters, memories and Rodriguez's own Things to Do Today list.

    Adore at its core is a bore, nothing more.

    Whether or not it's crucial for the gay community to have its own "Porky's" is a question for the ages; but please, not Another Gay Movie.

    Don’t expect to see a great film, or even a very good one. Whether you discover a meaningful channel with which to continue your walk with the film’s protagonist, however, is strictly between you and your god.

    This mishmash of styles, genres and tonal shifts makes for a dizzying pastiche best described in terms of the many movies it references throughout its nearly 2 1/2-hour running time, from “Little Big Man,” Buster Keaton’s “The General” and the Monument Valley-set canon of John Ford to “Dead Man,” “Rango” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

    The movie winds up a casualty of schmaltzy, patronizing sentiment on the one hand and overweening ambition on the other.

    Fanaro's script never really hones in on the concept's potential.
    • Baltimore Sun

    A film that, in attempting to ridicule the Bush administration, finally just settles for being ridiculous itself.

    It evokes a warmed-over Fox TV special.
    • 37 Metascore

    A grisly, depraved and wholly uninvolving exercise in empty mannerism.

    The most objectionable thing about Only God Forgives isn’t that it’s shocking or immoral, but that it’s so finally, fatally dull.

    If you're looking for some good family interspecies entertainment, take the little ones to see "Stuart Little 2" again; in the meantime, you might want to crawl into your cave and sleep through this one.

    Never makes the Jordans' tribulations feel like anything more than yuppie angst.

    Chances are, after they've passed the two-hour mark, viewers will share the same collective, if unspoken, wish: Go, Speed Racer. Go.

    Conceived and directed by Madonna, W.E. is a gorgeous mess.

    Why -- when there are so many funnier, smarter, more gifted performers who can't get arrested in Hollywood -- why, for the love of all that's good and holy, does Martin Lawrence get to keep making movies?
    • 36 Metascore

    A boilerplate melodrama whose good guys and bad guys are so baldly drawn they could have been conceived by Friz Freleng.
