    A Bigger Splash? More like a small trickle.

    Manages to waste the talents of its strong supporting cast, which includes Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Malcolm McDowell and Stanley Tucci.

    On its own terms and against all odds, "Outrage" is adequately entertaining, with more than enough cringe-inducing violence and cruel humor to please the average American moviegoer. But true Kitano fans will find its title sadly ironic.

    Episodically structured and lethargically paced, the new film attempts to convince us that there's something incredibly charming about an old guy who makes a habit of ogling young women. Actually, the whole scenario is pretty creepy.

    An inconsequential mess.

    Laggies is the kind of indie film that gives the genre a bad name.

    9
    Although it has a great look and offers a few thrills, the animated film 9 is one of this year's biggest disappointments.

    As a melodrama, Brothers is passable entertainment. But the film squanders the opportunity to meaningfully portray the impact of war on American lives.

    There’s a sharp comedy to be made about America’s misadventures in Afghanistan. This isn’t it.

    It doesn’t help that the characters caught up in this fact-based melodrama aren’t particularly engaging. Or that Téchiné doesn’t seem to have much of a feel for the material.

    Genius, like most films about the literary life, has trouble dramatizing what’s involved and making us care.

    This is the kind of film that makes moviegoers long for good, old-fashioned storytelling.

    Strives to be entertaining, but for much of its run time it is so emotionally uninvolving that even the smallest children might find themselves bored.
    • 52 Metascore

    A documentary that clearly aspires to the highest standards of cinematic muckraking but makes for a frustrating experience.

    McAvoy and Fassbender appealingly reprise their frenemy chemistry. But Lawrence has little to do but look perplexed.

    Saint Laurent was a truly mythic figure. It’s a shame that Bonello’s film doesn’t do him justice.

    A foul-mouthed comedy, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. "Bad Santa" (2003) also had plenty of crude language and lewd behavior. The difference is, "Bad Santa" was extremely funny.

    Offbeat and unpredictable, Demolition takes a wrecking ball to audience expectations.

    Struggles heroically, but unsuccessfully, to strike a balance between whimsy and pathos.

    One Day fails to make us care about the young couple at its center.

    Admission is one film you may not want to get into.

    Would have benefited from the kind of objectivity that Bass -- as Sar's well-heeled sponsor -- was hardly in a position to deliver.

    If you’re interested in Williams and his music, this film is better than nothing — but not by much.

    In a small role as a self-absorbed film producer, Mark Wahlberg is touchingly effective.

    Third Person doesn’t lack for ambition, and it’s nice to see Neeson in the kind of role that he excelled at before he morphed into an action star.
    • 37 Metascore

    A would-be light thriller that's so deficient in the genre's essentials - such as witty dialogue, intriguing characters and surprising yet credible plot turns - that you're embarrassed for everyone involved.

    The comedy is so lame that the whole enterprise comes across as depressing.

    After watching Post Grad, you may wonder whether Hollywood will ever stop making generic comedies with zero tolerance for originality.

    In Hollywood, it’s all about the concept, and some studio executive must have thought it would be fun to watch Adams slogging around in the Irish mud. Unfortunately, there’s no accounting for taste.

    In a way, Stonewall is proof that the gay community has fully made the transition to the mainstream. It’s now subject to the kind of Hollywood nonsense that was previously reserved for heterosexuals.
