    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Here is the horror-action genre at its silliest and most uninspired.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Billed as a comedy, this low-wattage sitcom is both ill-tempered and mean-spirited.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    This highly sanitized, heavily costumed, dramatically inert nonsense makes last year's dreadful golf biopic "Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius" look like a masterpiece.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Witless, terminally irritating remake.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    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.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Most obvious crime is first-degree dullness, giving us a thriller without thrills and a mystery devoid of urgent questions.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Marsh's flat-footed recitation of Believe It or Not crimes grows tedious, and his condescension to present-day citizens of the town (implying they're as grotesque and doomed as ever) rings false.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    The pseudo-mystical nonsense in Brian Helgeland's supernatural thriller far outweighs its scare factor.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Consistently fails to deliver the charm it presumes to have.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Moviegoers might have preferred a little more care with the characters. As it is, Alma comes off not as a courageous trailblazer but as an indiscriminate adventuress.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    The moviemakers have eliminated the finer points of the novel in favor of broad strokes. Very broad strokes.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    In the little war between charm and belligerence that is the real centerpiece of Lost and Found, romantic comedy takes a beating.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    As witch movies go -- even lighthearted, supposedly comic witch movies -- Practical Magic is conspicuously lacking in supernatural phenomena.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Get out your hankies and weep for the heart-tugging disaster Message in a Bottle.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    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.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Merely labeling National Lampoon's Van Wilder "sophomoric" or "vulgar" doesn't do justice to the perpetrators' dedication.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    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.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Every situation, every bit of dialogue, comes straight out of the Big Book of Movie Clichés.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    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.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    D is for Dreadful. And Duchovny.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    There's little evidence to suggest Schneebaum was one of the great explorers of the 20th century, or even that he was particularly curious.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    Anyone who expects a little drama with their screen sex will have to go elsewhere.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    Loquacious and dreary piece of business.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    It's a paint-by-numbers job of the worst sort, stuffed with more tired old baseball baloney than Harry Caray and about as dramatic as shagging flies in St. Pete.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    Say what you want about Hollywood losing its way in recent years, there's something beautiful about moviemakers who paint themselves into corners this tight.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    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.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Bill Gallo
    Runs two hours and 20 minutes and plays like 10 days in the county jail.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 10 Bill Gallo
    In short, let nothing deter you from staying home.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 10 Bill Gallo
    With malice for all, Drop Dead Gorgeous isn't likely to win any popularity contests.
