    Hark! A Christian thriller about the Last Days that doesn't (totally) suck. That's got to be a sign of the times.

    It's a yabba-dabba-delight.
    • 38 Metascore

    Plenty of the tasteless gags don't fly, and for every celebrity cameo that works (a hilariously heavenly Reese Witherspoon), there are two or three that crash and burn.

    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.

    It's Norton's movie, really, and he shines both as cocky Jack and as cerebral-palsied Brian.

    Quite handsomely produced, and there's a definite swashbuckling verve to it. Most of the characters have been contemporized, but the actors are engaging.

    Almost nothing happens for most of the movie.

    The movie's most glaring flaw is that the brothers and their screenwriters, Terry Hayes and Rafael Yglesias, don't manage to preserve the secret of the Ripper's identity for nearly as long as they intend to.

    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.

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

    The watchability of Extreme Days can be mostly chalked up to Hannah's playful impulses -- and his cast's infectious camaraderie.

    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.

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

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

    If Parker had aimed more at capturing the author's unique voice, and worried less about getting the details right, his movie might have been extraordinary as well.

    Oh-so-tiresomely familiar.

    Given a decent script, they might make a fun summer movie. Given the script for Shanghai Noon, they've come up with a middling Old West oater that falls flat at least as often as it finds the funny bone.

    Whenever Voight steps to the forefront, A Dog of Flanders is poochy-keen; alas, the rest of the time it's doggedly dull.

    It's a lock to pile up the honors during Hollywood's annual awards season next spring (at the Golden Raspberries and the MTV Movie Awards).
    • 30 Metascore

    To paraphrase the movie's too-knowing tag line: It's not very funny. But when the lights go out -- it's still not very funny.

    As romantic comedies go, this is definitely not one you'd take to the altar, but you might enjoy having a cup of coffee with it.

    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.

    With the dependably compelling Freeman present, even its worst moments are not unwatchable.

    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.

    A full-throated shout-out to the lowest common denominator.

    A movie interesting enough in its conception to appeal to adults winds up being best suited to preadolescent sensibilities.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 41 Cody Clark
    The characters and their dilemmas are never convincing.

    The satisfaction of watching it essentially boils down to seeing whether or not Reeves can pull it off.

    The worst thing about The Animal -- is how frequently it becomes boring.
    • 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.
