    Whenever we're not at the ballpark, the film falls back on teenage relationship clichés. That's most of what's wrong with it, actually.

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

    Pie 2 has neither undercurrent, and hence what was passably cute the first time seems much more puerile and shrill here.

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

    Swordfish is exactly the kind of nominally high-octane actioner that breeds legions of apologists who will encourage you to "check your brain at the door" before seeing it.

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

    Whenever the movie's not in the midst of a cinematic spoof it loses considerable steam.

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

    Whatever the amount on Roth's paycheck was, it's the only truly charmed sum Lucky Numbers has to offer.

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

    None of the movie's abundant humor is better than faintly amusing.

    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.

    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.

    Gamer geeks, I speak your language! And I warn you: Flee! Or, at the very least, crank down any expectations you harbor -- a few notches below "zero" should do it -- before buying a ticket.

    Has its share of small pleasures.

    Even if the antic futility of attempting to get an entire shtetl to pull together in the face of genocide is your idea of a day at the races, don't laugh too hard -- the out-of-nowhere ending will make you choke on every chuckle.

    Beautiful it ain't, but it is kind of cute.

    If Company Man were a wreck on the interstate, it would involve multiple cars and at least one jackknifed tanker truck, and traffic would be backed up for miles as passing motorists slow to gawk.

    An early scene inside a theater seems intended to wink at Sin's critics: "Disgusting! Cheap melodrama," a lady sniffs during intermission. It's a neatly reflexive acknowledgement of what we ourselves are watching, but even at that, our filmmaker is praising himself too extravagantly by half.

    As though fatalistically compelled, all three leads self-destruct: Li is as flat, colorless, and stiff as a panel of Sheetrock, Karyo plays his every syllable in overdrive, and Fonda seems trapped in the midst of a failed screen test for Pretty Woman II.

    If you can overlook its condescending wholesomeness and static, visually drab, endlessly repetitious animation, then you have a more forgiving soul than I do.

    So wretched that it practically defies description.

    Once the action starts to kick in, Megiddo morphs, minute by minute and scene by scene, into a Mystery Science Theater smorgasbord.

    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.

    It's a gleefully unfettered gross-a-thon first --also second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth -- and a movie perhaps seventh.

    If you're desperate for a James Bond fix, skip the movie and blow your 007 bucks on a copy of the soundtrack.

    Thinking (logically or otherwise) about this movie is a waste of your brain cells.

    It has no subtlety, no shadings, and no suspense, and might as well not have a screenplay.
