    The movie starts out cleverly enough but grows insipid as the girls' antics become more predictable.

    Squanders the opportunity to give us a telling glimpse of the woman behind the ruff. Instead, the costume drama is all gilt and opulence.

    Madonna's directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom, feels more like a collection of scenes than a fully drawn film.

    Love Happens is an oddly upbeat title for a movie that is surprisingly sad.

    The bone-crunchingly violent film has luridly entertaining moments. But by its resolution, this sleazy Southern Gothic nightmare has simply gone off the rails.

    The new Wuthering Heightsis all gloomy moors and muck, but not much convincing passion.

    Lovelace is a lackluster, skin-deep biopic.

    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Running With Scissors lacks the edge of Augusten Burroughs' best-selling memoir. The result is an inconsistent tragicomedy that attempts to be cut from the same darkly humorous cloth as "American Beauty," but fails.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Starts out with promise but staggers under the weight of trying to take on too much. The tone is murky: The story attempts to blend adolescent angst with fantasy adventure, and the result is rather clunky.

    Despite a terrific cast, Jack Reacher comes up empty-handed.

    If you've seen "Mean Girls" or "Easy A," you've seen a far better version of The DUFF.

    How Do You Know must have started with a good idea that got lost in the translation from concept to screen.

    We'd all like to live in an Italian movie. So says a character in Nine, and it's probably the best line in this musical misfire.

    Because Sarandon is such a good actress, she makes the movie watchable, and there are a couple of laughs to be had.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    As a chronicle of the collapse of a marriage, the film is choppy, contrived and cloying.

    There's virtually nothing new in the dull Paranormal Activity 4 except for a modification in the method of documenting the spooky shenanigans.

    • 50 Claudia Puig
    For those in the audience, it's best to just sit back, drink in its virtual dazzle and not ask questions. The story is beside the point in this sleek-looking reboot. It's all about the whiz-bang special effects and the return of Jeff Bridges - always the coolest guy in any space, cyber or otherwise.

    Despite gripping chase sequences and a few awe-inspiring fiery explosions, gaping holes in the convoluted plot make Shooter heavier on style than substance.

    What makes it slightly better than the others is an affable, low-key chemistry between James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan as star-crossed lovers.

    The very rich are different from you and me. And much worse. That's basically the message of the disappointingly banal Nanny Diaries, a film that is even more lightweight and clichéd than the fluff that was the best-selling book.

    It's good to see Polley back on screen, after her successful turn behind the camera directing 2006's "Away From Her." She brings a measure of intelligence to the one-dimensional role.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Diverting enough if you want to see plenty of fast-paced action sequences, some heart-stopping chase scenes and plenty of things blow up.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    The movie is sure to appeal to fans of the show. But when quality family films, such as "Holes" and "Bend It Like Beckham," are also in theaters, why waste your time on this drivel? The answer, of course, is the kids will insist on it.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Considering the controversy and chaos Sony Pictures Studios is undergoing because of it, The Interview fails to live up to the hype, floundering as a rowdy comedy as it grows duller by the minute.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    So stunningly photographed that the blood that spurts early and often in this grisly period piece is extra-vivid red. But that hardly makes the Prohibition-era story of a trio of bootlegging brothers feel authentic.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Though the blending of archival footage into a faux documentary is occasionally clever, ultimately it's banal and unconvincing.
    • 47 Metascore

    Just be the most wildly derivative animated movie in ages.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Though the premise is clever -- everything comes to life at night in New York City's Natural History Museum -- this movie doesn't make the best comic use of the concept.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Plausibility aside, the key to making the scenario work is comedy. Much can be forgiven if it delivers enough laughs. That's the main problem here. It's short on clever humor and big on convention and formula.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    A ceramic gnome by any other name is still a kitschy little figure.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    One thing it doesn't do is offer a revealing look at the mercurial entrepreneur. The movie that bears his name settles on a blandly superficial treatment of a deeply complex man.

    After "Monsters, Inc.," this movie may be a bit of a letdown, but there are some scenes that will delight elementary-school-age children and older preschoolers -- notably the gross-out moments.

    Not so admirably, the film feels at times like a giant commercial for Universal Studios.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Slight and only sporadically amusing.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    The potency of the acting is also undercut by leaden pacing and a sense of claustrophobia.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Forced, formulaic and never believable. It's a particularly unholy combination.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    It's a 2 1/2-hour slog, with tonal inconsistencies and monotonous, drawn-out action sequences. Scenes alternate between frenetic and tedious.
    • 52 Metascore

    The predictable story feels as if it were written by a computer program labeled "sequel."
    • 19 Metascore

    You'll be checking your watch a lot during Timeline. Though most of the cast is strong and the movie has moments of suspense, ultimately the mystery in this action thriller is so far-fetched it's ludicrous.
    • 49 Metascore

    Rio 2 teems with colorful animated splendor and elaborate musical numbers, but its rambling, hectic, if good-hearted, story is for the birds.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    It would be nice to be able to report that Kinky Boots is a kick in the pants. But this conventional, manipulative British import feels like a re-soled pair of shoes that unquestionably have seen their day.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Freedom Writers is an earnest, well-meaning attempt at inspirational teen drama. It has some moving scenes and honest observations, based on a school in Long Beach, Calif., but the movie sinks under the weight of formula and stereotypes.
    • 32 Metascore

    There is undoubtedly a good movie in the varied experiences of American newcomers. But it would need to involve sagas more urgent and more original.

    Enraptured by bathroom humor that doesn't even reach sophomoric standards. It's more on the level of preschool.

    Though not nearly as raucously funny as the leads in "Wedding Crashers," Nick and Shawn resemble junior versions of the one-track-minded womanizers played by Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

    With the lackluster quality of its characters — aircraft, a smattering of trucks, RVs and motorcycles — the movie makes Pixar's Cars and its sequel look like masterpieces.

    It's about as uncomfortable as sitting through an interminable counseling session - involving two people you hardly know and don't much care about.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Has some funny moments, silly mispronunciations and comical socio-political references. But it suffers from being the second animated movie this year to feature a dastardly villain for a hero.

    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Makes its point ham-fistedly and then devolves into a blood-spattered slasher movie. It also unashamedly cribs from more disturbing films like "Straw Dogs," "Funny Games" and "A Clockwork Orange."
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    The best thing about Black Snake Moan, a song title, is the blues soundtrack. The movie is an absurdly jarring collection of archetypal characters in miserable circumstances with a resolution that feels forced and tacked on.
    • 45 Metascore

    While the sound design and spooky minimalist music add suspense, and CGI effects are duly sinister, a climactic strobe effect is more annoying than frightening.

    Glimmers of a fascinating and lively period film surface and fade in the first half-hour of The Immigrant. What predominates is a dully morose, overheated and implausible story.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    As it is, this uneven movie is more a compilation of contemporary images and concerns peppered with derivative raucous scenarios, à la Judd Apatow movies, than an involving romantic comedy.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Though the project, based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel "A Princess of Mars," is ambitious, it's also bloated, dreary and humorless.

    Yet another foray into unnecessary 3-D, is a rehashed mishmash of Jonathan Swift's 18th-century classic. Mostly, it's a vehicle for Jack Black's zany humor.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Intermittently funny. But the movie's first 20 minutes is devoted to tediously showing how his career has taken off around the world. That might be fine if this were a documentary, or if it were done more artfully, and with humor — since we go into the movie expecting a 75-minute laugh-fest.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    Despite its ultra-formulaic premise and juvenile sense of humor, there are a few laughs, and the movie's heart is generally in the right place, with the notable exception of racist characterizations of an Arab prince and Japanese businessmen.

    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.

    It's nowhere near as funny or incisive as the South Park movies, and it has a much crazier style. Imagine Abraham Lincoln chatting up a giant milkshake and discussing slavery, and you get the picture.

    The film is likable, with some funny moments and recognizable human conflicts. But the origin of the women's friendship is not explained, and the nature of Olivia's problems is not examined or taken very seriously, making her seem inexplicably lost and shallow.

    Deep within Law Abiding Citizen lurks a thought-provoking movie. But most of what we see on the screen is implausible, superficial and only marginally involving.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Claudia Puig
    It's hard to sustain that cheeky meta humor, and the film seems to just give in and join its slasher brethren, devolving into a string of gruesome, but unoriginal, slayings.

    The film simply doesn't come together fluidly. Smaller parts aren't on par with the lead role, and special effects are overdone and cheesy. At times, the essence of Shakespeare's poetry is drowned out.

    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.

    It doesn't help that the performances are bland (particularly those of Christensen and Bilson) and that what comes out of their mouths is uninspired. Short on imagination and anchored by a wan hero, Jumper is a flight of fancy that never fully takes off.

    Quvenzhané Wallis is adorably plucky as the lead in Annie. She and Jamie Foxx as the newfangled Daddy Warbucks character have an appealing chemistry and their songs together are the best moments in the movie. But the rest of Annie is banal, shallow and markedly cynical.
