    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.

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

    Evolution devolves to the sight of a colossal alien expelling flatus over Arizona. So that's why this movie stinks. Play that flatulent music, white boy.

    A groaningly awful romantic comedy.

    Hiring this sensitive fantasist (Gondry) to make the superhero saga The Green Hornet is like hiring satirist John Waters to make "Rambo." Hard to think of a more mystifying mismatch of filmmaker and material.

    On the evidence of Palindromes, the most misanthropic, depressing, hopeless film in memory, I'd hazard that for Solondz, childhood is a problem without a solution.

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

    What has Campbell wrought? An intermittently amusing, interminable affair that for sheer ugliness and a scenery-chewing performance by Peter Sarsgaard has a certain Camp appeal.
    • 42 Metascore

    Has to be the sorriest excuse for a reprise since "Highlander — The Final Dimension."

    A high-end version of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" set in the rarefied bistros, boites and brokerages of Yuppie Manhattan in the 1980s.

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

    At 116 minutes, this third installment lumbers along like a serial killer in shackles.

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

    "Zis is not verking! Zee glitter cannot overpower zee artist!" That, in a sentence, sums up what is wrong with this picture.

    Alas, this joyless affair doesn't have a clou.

    Hot Rod never establishes its own personality.

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

    While "Boogie Nights" was a dirge for the death of pleasure (which coincided with the death of the porn-film industry), Wonderland is death warmed over. Literally.

    As a western, American Outlaws is an utter failure. As the basis of a "Mad TV" parody, it is an unintentional hoot.

    The wrestler carries himself with decency and without self-seriousness, the qualities that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a star. Austin deserves better material than this. So do we.

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

    Though Hilton may be a model, if her work in Hottie is any indication, she is no actress.

    Both the sex and the battle sequences here look like football plays drawn by an NFL coach and shot by the wide receiver's mother. Usually, even when I don't like a Stone film I admire its frenzied energy, but the editing here is as lethargic as the compositions are perfunctory.

    A stunt that fails.

    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.

    Nothing wrong with the syrupy romance Here on Earth that a megadose of insulin couldn't fix.

    Mighty Joe Young is a movie only an 8-year-old could love. How cheesy is it? Well, it leaves the ooze of Velveeta in its wake. [25 Dec 1998, p.4]

    The unintentional effect of movies like Bless the Child is that they are enough to make agnostics out of true believers.

    An inert comedy starring Kristen Bell as a workaholic unlucky in love, When in Rome is a rom-bomb.

    An unlikable and excruciatingly unfunny comedy.

    It pains me to tell you, But really, it's true: The Cat in the Hat Is a piece of dog doo.

    Tedious and incoherent thriller.

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

    Rarely has sex on screen been so aggressively anti-erotic.

    Hostage may well be the first action flick cited both for child abuse and audience abuse. In a singularly sadistic and degrading way it has something to offend everyone.

    Aja's stomach-churning remake (produced by Craven) follows the original with frightening fidelity, amping up the barbarity from a nine (on the 1-10 scale) to a 12.

    Sappy script. Cheesy supernaturalism. Tired satire.

    Six guys and a gal who flatline on arrival. Easily the lamest action-adventure fantasy since “Wild Wild West.”

    With its first-person-shooter perspective and gun-andrun narrative, this one’s for the PlayStation crowd. It’s not a movie. It’s an adrenaline pump and purveyor of raw carnage.

    So bad you're nostalgic for "Gigli." So painful you need an epidural. So mindless you'll lose yours wondering, "What were they thinking?"
