    The "Golden Girls" with gats.

    Looking for plausibility in a farce is like looking for a million dollars in a box of breakfast cereal, but elements of real life can make a comedy resonate instead of thud. Little Black Book does the latter.

    Michael Lembeck directs with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, pounding every joke and cliche until they are flat, flat, flat.

    Proves a theory first advanced in the movie "Repo Man": The more you drive, the stupider you get.

    Those who want something more substantial from a movie than a vid-game script with centerfold appeal will not find it in this noisy, bone-crushing survivalist flick inspired by the Game Cube diversion.
    • 35 Metascore

    The execution is so dumbed-down, so dumbfounding, that sophisticated moviegoers might confuse it for outtakes from "Spy Kids 2" and "XXX."
    • 34 Metascore

    Tedious, ludicrous and harmless glimpse of the dawn of civilization.

    Ice Cube possesses real screen presence, and it's a shame to see him squander his talents here. He and Epps made me laugh in "Next Friday." They made me squirm here.

    I would have told you that its title refers to recreational vehicle. Having seen it, I now know the initials stand for reeking vulgarity.

    Plays like "Sixteen Candles" meets "Beetlejuice." Yet for all the film's frantic pace, this plot plods, even for 'tweens at whom this suburban-girls-take-Manhattan fantasy is obviously targeted.

    Judah Friedlander and Lindsay Lohan are striking, respectively, as a Lennon paparazzo and a fan creeped out by Chapman.

    It's hard to say with certainty whether it's insufficient plot or insufficient interpretation that's responsible for Travolta's waxwork performance.

    Sappy script. Cheesy supernaturalism. Tired satire.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Carrie Rickey
    An abhorrent cyberthriller starring a compelling Diane Lane.

    As an account of how for-profit big business literally rips a consumer's heart out, Repo Men is too graphic for me.
    • 31 Metascore

    Perfect Stranger is the Egg MacGuffin of whodunits, a cheesy affair that casts so many baited lures that they tangle each other and don't hook you.

    Monster-in-Law, where Bridezilla meets Godzilla, is a comedy so anemic, so toxic, that even Dracula wouldn't bite.
    • 31 Metascore

    This film about a career gal's date with fate careers out of control.
    • 30 Metascore

    It may not be the worst war epic ever made - that probably would be "Battlefield Earth" -- but it's darn close to being an unqualified disaster of that magnitude.

    Six guys and a gal who flatline on arrival. Easily the lamest action-adventure fantasy since “Wild Wild West.”
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Carrie Rickey
    This so-called comedy is a frayed string of anxious jokes about whether male bonding is manly or sissy.

    Apart from Williams' presence, director Christopher Erskin's feature debut isn't worth the price of submission. It's not a road trip; it's a road trap.

    So stupid, so stupefying, so stupendously bad.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer

    No doubt conceived as an underwater version of "National Treasure," Andy Tennant's film plays like a Three Stooges movie with scuba gear.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Carrie Rickey
    An unlikable and excruciatingly unfunny comedy.

    The film's one realistic performance is that of Dakota Fanning as Lucy, whose child's shame, fear and resourcefulness ground the movie in recognizable behavior. She breathes air into this suffocating enterprise.

    Happily N'Ever After carjacks "Cinderella" and puts her wicked stepmother behind the wheel.

    Screenwriters Nicole Eastman and the "Blonde" team of Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith provide dialogue that has the propriety of the locker room.

    If Sweet November were a puppy, it would have rabies.

    Here is a movie with everything going for it and nothing working.
