    It takes more than an awkward title attempting to sound cool to overcome its mundane plot and silly dialogue.

    Been-there-seen-that wannabe laughfest.

    All cinematic creativity seems to have focused on devising the most repellent ways to maim and murder.

    This implausible action thriller also stars Julianne Moore as an FBI agent who sees Cage's two-bit Vegas act and decides he can single-handedly save the world.

    The pirate ship has hit foul waters, and even the sharp wit and charm of everyone's favorite buccaneer can't save it.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Far-fetched, flimsy and uninvolving.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    It's an almighty, humorless bore.

    Director Steve Buscemi is not to be faulted for his filmmaking or acting skills, but as co-writer he could have done better than the false-sounding dialogue.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    A movie that gives marriage, homosexuality, friendship, firefighters, children and nearly everything else a bad name.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    A silly movie that's essentially a series of clichés strung together into a semblance of a movie.

    If you've been lobotomized or have the mental age of a kindergartener, Mr. Bean's Holiday is viable comic entertainment.

    Balls of Fury makes "Dodgeball" look like high art. It'll be tough to crack a smile, let alone laugh, during this uninspired and sophomoric satire of sports movies.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    It's so unfunny it almost stings.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    The movie is devoid of laughs, except for a mildly funny segment when one of the chipmunks inhales helium. And since this is aimed at the under-10 set, it includes the requisite flatulence joke and a spit take or two.

    The entire undertaking feels like a waste of time and talent.

    Farrell is quite good, though it's hard to buy the Scottish McGregor and the Irish Farrell as brothers. But mostly, the film feels rudderless, almost as if it's been directed on autopilot.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    A misguided attempt at comedy that needs to go last on anyone's list of movie options.

    Veggie Tales is a faith-based franchise that uses a blend of a religious/moral message and humor to teach about honesty and forgiveness. But Pirates lacks the humor of the videos and "A Veggie Tales Movie."

    A wan version of the same old tired serial killer story, despite its updated milieu -- cyberspace.
    • 29 Metascore

    The jewels in the buried treasure, once sighted, look fake. But the bigger problem is how artificial the whole story feels.

    Within a few minutes into the ponderous prehistoric pseudo-epic that is 10,000 B.C., you find yourself longing for George of the Jungle to crash into a tree or the Geico cavemen to amble up and put an end to the droning seriousness of this tedious tale.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Wastes a moderately intriguing premise by filling it with laughably clichéd dialogue, one-dimensional characters and implausible turns of events.

    While he gets points for addressing the debate, the way in which Stein goes about it undermines his efforts to be even-handed and intellectually rigorous.

    Yes, it's a candy-colored Day-Glo world, but there's a liveliness missing from this lead-footed Speed Racer.

    Shyamalan isn't drawing the caliber of performances from his actors as he used to. Who can forget Haley Joel Osment's haunting portrayal in The Sixth Sense or that of Toni Collette, who played his mother, or Bruce Willis in arguably his best role?

    If only the movie had heeded its own advice and tried to be different from the standard formula.

    Don't expect the seventh Star Wars film here. Star Wars: The Clone Wars is more like a long Saturday morning cartoon.

    If you're a Rainn Wilson fan, catch a rerun of "The Office."
    • 27 Metascore

    Defanged and drippy, the remake of 1939's The Women seems to have been made for the dullard granddaughters of the sassy, sharp society matrons in George Cukor's campy original.

    It's déjà vu all over again. There isn't much more to say about "We Own the Night 2." Oops, make that Pride and Glory.
