    A wide-eyed, action-adventure throwback to the era of Disney's magnificent adaptation of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

    An outrageously silly movie that makes me laugh.

    Feels like it was pulled out of the freezer and hastily microwaved about 10 minutes before you arrived at the theater.

    Has its share of small pleasures.

    The result is a feast for the eyes but frequently a famine for the frontal lobes, a movie of towering imagination and middling rewards.

    Something of a featherweight, but it's also a positively divine comedy.

    Spacey and Bridges -- generally provide exactly the level of investment required for their characters to be convincing. Neither one showboats, and both make good use of the dry humor in Leavitt's script.

    Murphy's second outing as the M.D. who talks to the animals is surprisingly engaging.

    The characters and their dilemmas are never convincing.

    If you're in the mood for a helping of lite cheesecake, you ought to find plenty of reason to shake your pom-poms.

    The actors playing the team members have stereotypical roles, but these kids have got game.

    Folks who are desperate to ogle Hewitt and Weaver probably can't be warned off this turkey.

    Without full-bodied characters to play, Smith and Damon are left to get by on their native charm -- something both have in considerable quantity, thankfully.
    • 46 Metascore

    As its plot is entirely negligible, whether or not you enjoy One Night at McCool's probably depends on how funny you think the performances are.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 33 Cody Clark
    An empty reminder that Martin Lawrence can be pretty funny, in a spastic, loose-limbed way -- maybe next time he'll get a worthwhile script.

    Every time the movie seems poised to veer into watchability, however, Turteltaub is there, like a beat cop for the Fun Police, reminding us to laugh, sigh, or tear up.
    • 44 Metascore

    What comes before and after the sound and fury of the bombing raid are reams of banal dialogue.

    The worst thing about The Animal -- is how frequently it becomes boring.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 82 Cody Clark
    The plot that propels them (Pitt, Roberts) along separate story lines is both unusually character-driven and a hoot.
    • 43 Metascore

    Pie 2 has neither undercurrent, and hence what was passably cute the first time seems much more puerile and shrill here.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Cody Clark
    It's good enough, smart enough, and people will like it. It's also a high-concept cop-out, a convention-strangled genre movie that never zigs when your every instinct is screaming that it's about to zag.

    A warm, glossy holiday fable that hits some surprisingly sweet notes.

    The ending is so absurd, in fact, that it feels like it was improvised by a committee of 6-year-olds. If the raptors truly were intelligent, they'd have eaten the final reel.

    This saga of one robot's determined quest to become human is so coldly calculated it could give you frostbite.

    With the dependably compelling Freeman present, even its worst moments are not unwatchable.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 67 Cody Clark
    Mad About Mambo's steps may be as familiar as the hokeypokey, but there's just enough gusto in the execution to make it a guilty pleasure.
    • 40 Metascore

    I'd write it all off as something that is, after all, intended for young viewers -- but then I'd be insulting their intelligence as cruelly as the movie does.

    A movie interesting enough in its conception to appeal to adults winds up being best suited to preadolescent sensibilities.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 11 Cody Clark
    It has no subtlety, no shadings, and no suspense, and might as well not have a screenplay.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Cody Clark
    The movie is more or less competent for being what it is. Of course, I could say the same of most brick walls -- but I'd hardly recommend that you pay eight bucks to sit in front of one for two hours.
