    Too much attention to art-deco detail, a meandering story that hesitates whenever it wants to touch an emotional chord, then squanders the opportunity with an eccentric line-reading or an extravagant camera angle.

    This highly sanitized, heavily costumed, dramatically inert nonsense makes last year's dreadful golf biopic "Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius" look like a masterpiece.

    In short, let nothing deter you from staying home.

    As witch movies go -- even lighthearted, supposedly comic witch movies -- Practical Magic is conspicuously lacking in supernatural phenomena.

    Means to be heavy in terms of psychology, provocation and the examination of emotion, but it sinks like a stone the minute it hits the surface.

    Connie and Carla doesn't just do violence to the memory of Wilder's brilliant sex farce (Some Like It Hot); it's so clumsy, it might give cross-dressing itself a bad name.

    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Consistently fails to deliver the charm it presumes to have.

    Runs two hours and 20 minutes and plays like 10 days in the county jail.

    Get out your hankies and weep for the heart-tugging disaster Message in a Bottle.

    The witless inanity of After the Sunset is so numbing that the sole reason for any living creature to sit through it--man, woman or household pet--is to marvel at the speed and variety of actress Salma Hayek's costume changes.

    Witless, terminally irritating remake.

    Ryan never quite convinces us she's seen the inside of a fight gym, much less that she's worthy to be Rocky in a miniskirt. On the other hand, her director here was not Campion but actor Charles S. Dutton, whose behind-the-camera skills, developed via cable TV, tend toward the cartoonish.

    D is for Dreadful. And Duchovny.

    Billed as a comedy, this low-wattage sitcom is both ill-tempered and mean-spirited.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Every situation, every bit of dialogue, comes straight out of the Big Book of Movie Clichés.

    The pseudo-mystical nonsense in Brian Helgeland's supernatural thriller far outweighs its scare factor.
    • 19 Metascore

    In the little war between charm and belligerence that is the real centerpiece of Lost and Found, romantic comedy takes a beating.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Here is the horror-action genre at its silliest and most uninspired.
