    The dashing Jackman plays his part well enough, but the script doesn't provide sufficient "Indiana Jones"-style bons mots to win us over.

    Not even Bill Murray could save Garfield. Perhaps the comedian -- so pitch-perfect as the sardonic actor in "Lost in Translation" -- got too deeply into character.

    Performances, plot and pacing are as mechanical as the hard-wired cast.

    Fun at times and tedious at others, it's an action-adventure fantasy aimed particularly at gadget-loving boys.

    Hunter is far too talented to waste her time with such mediocre material, as is co-star Kathy Bates, who plays Kippie Kann, an overbearing talk-show host.

    Thackeray said that he wanted "to leave everybody dissatisfied and unhappy at the end of the story." Nair may have had other intentions, but by film's end, audiences are bound to be left dissatisfied with the choppy and confusing storytelling style and unhappy about the missed opportunity.

    Mr. 3000 isn't nearly as fun as an afternoon of America's Pastime.

    Worse, the story is so thin and clichéd, it seems as if a computer wrote the screenplay and a robot directed it.

    This follow-up seems so similar to the 1953 Disney classic that it makes one long for a geriatric Peter.

    Her (Garner) grace and mystical abilities make for a lonely burden, and we are supposed to feel her pain. Instead, we feel our own for having to sit through this silly movie.

    The film clocks in at under two hours, but the last 20 minutes feel like 40.

    Bewitched does have a few laughs, thanks to Ferrell's antics. And some of the wittiest contemporary comedians are on board, notably "The Office's" Steve Carell and "The Daily Show's" Stephen Colbert, but they are underused.

    Yes
    Yes is more of a maybe. Or even a hmmm.

    There's nothing terribly fantastic about this ho-hum futuristic foray.

    This frenzied fiesta of firepower is about cloning people for spare parts, but the movie is a clone itself. Possessing no new ideas, it reworks and borrows from such films as "Blade Runner," "The Matrix" and "Logan's Run."

    Amazingly, amidst the smutty silliness, there are some laughs.

    This B-list thriller portrays air crews as inept, at best, and callous and cruel at worst.

    It may sound like a Peter Pan spinoff, and Dear Wendy does involve lost boys in a stagey setting, but the film is closer to "A Clockwork Orange" than a tale of lasting youth.

    The dialogue, delivered mostly in Southern accents, is intended to be funny and fresh, but much of this Western-influenced sci-fi adventure story feels reheated.

    Though it's no fiasco -- there's nothing mythic about its disjointed story -- it is a failure.

    Movie stardom is seductive, but 50 Cent and his fans will be best served if he sticks to to his day job.

    Murphy's breathy, high voice as Kitten feels forced, but not nearly as much as the film's efforts to be both whimsical and weighty.

    Ice Harvest's plot sounds like an antidote to the season's holiday sweetness. And it's being touted as this year's Bad Santa. But the only similarities are the holiday season, the criminal milieu and Thornton.

    It's made expressly for fans of unmitigated gore.

    Slogs pokily along and never quite picks up speed.

    There's really not much fun to be had with Dick and Jane - or anyone else in this anemic comedy.
    • 35 Metascore

    The story, though initially intriguing, is dicey. A seminal social satire has been spun off into a passionless romance and a wan comedy.

    Firewall might be worth renting on an inclement weekend when the pickings are slim. It does have some tense moments - even if some of the technical plot points don't quite scan. But, overall, it just feels like a rehash.

    The film's mythology is a bit dodgy, and the dialogue is standard issue, but the over-the-top action sequences are occasionally fun, if gory. Ultimately, it's a formulaic, predictable take on a Hollywood staple: the vampire horror film.

    Willis' performance mystifies, while Mos Def's mesmerizes.
