    The script is so pre-determined it seems generated by a computer program, not human beings.

    The girls who adore the likable Everygirl Bynes will find a lot to enjoy about the film, especially the boys who look as though they just were lounging around the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog.

    Its frights are not that chilling or original, its secrets more run-of-the-mill than astounding.
    • 60 Metascore

    Entertaining in spite of itself.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    A tepid sort of romantic comedy, with lengthy stretches during which nothing much happens punctuated by bouts of paralyzing boredom or, on rare occasions, random but fleeting hilarity.

    17 Girls is allegedly inspired by true events, but this diffident, dreamy film is so insubstantial it's hard to believe there's a speck of reality to be found in it.

    In the thriller Into the Blue, the Bahamian waters dazzle the eye. They are breathtaking and welcoming, possessing mysterious depths. The same cannot be said for the film's stars, Paul Walker and Jessica Alba, who are every bit as gorgeous as the scenery but not quite so profound.

    Twisted is a movie so derivative it's hard to pinpoint exactly how many other thrillers it poaches from.

    Gridiron Gang is not imaginative, but neither is it painful to watch.
    • 54 Metascore

    The racing itself is entertaining enough, though it's not so mesmerizing as the shorter, more focused competition in the far-superior "Seabiscuit."
    • 40 Metascore

    It's the cinematic equivalent of Bon Jovi's You Give Love a Bad Name: You know in your heart it's a crappy song, and every wince-inducing line is an affront to your intelligence, but hey, it's on the radio, so you turn up the volume and sing along anyway.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    A competent but utterly unnecessary retelling of the story.

    For all its pretension and artiness, Blindness is more like M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening" (which at least had the decency to be fast-paced and short), right down to its upbeat and inane conclusion.

    The Great Debaters keeps things on the surface and pushes the obvious buttons, hoping you won't notice its distinct lack of depth.
    • 54 Metascore

    Observe and Report conveys an essential truth about Rogen: Like every other actor on the planet, he needs good material to do good work.
    • 38 Metascore

    Trailers make it seem as though Radio is all about football, but it's not, and once the film leaves the fall sport behind it wanders around in no particular direction until it reaches an abrupt, poorly executed ending.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    What we're left with is an unfocused, rambling concept that lumbers off the ground but never really soars to the level of lunacy it could, especially at the afterthought of an ending, which is nonsensical at best.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    There’s potential here, a decent story and a cast well-stocked with grownup cinematic luminaries. But this supernatural Gothic romance is a prisoner of its own demons, which include sketchy Southern accents, tacky and tired stereotypes and faux homespun dialogue in the wrong mouths.

    You won't necessarily applaud The Notebook's excesses, but its final moments of grace will leave you in a sodden heap on the theater floor.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The film is weighted down by a dour sensibility at odds with the book's insouciant charm.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    A well-acted, well-crafted but excruciatingly tepid romantic film about a subject that will attract poetry lovers and yet test even their considerable patience.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The idea of cracking a secret message from the enemy during war is thrilling; making the process interesting to watch is more problematic.
    • 37 Metascore

    As a film, though, Gimme Shelter is unremarkable, a predictable story of redemption that happens awfully fast, to a girl who only seems to be in peril briefly — and has a rich dad to bail her out.
    • 33 Metascore

    The good news is the updated version is scarier than the original, thanks to snazzier special effects, a shorter running time, moody lighting, a few solid jolts and one icky moment involving a bratty babysitter and a closet. The bad news is the film rehashes every horror movie cliché you can imagine.

    You should know right up front that even if you realize you're being manipulated you are probably going to weep anyway.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Neither scary nor thrilling, although it's reasonably entertaining despite an abundance of haunted-house clichés, the usual inexplicable scary-movie behavior and an almost-naked John Hurt.
    • 25 Metascore

    The fact that License to Wed isn't as unbearable as its trailers make it look doesn't mean it's good. It's not. It's just another mediocre addition -- worse than the best sitcoms, better than the worst.

    If Magic Mike XXL is bulging with anything, it’s inane conversation.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The film relies a bit too much on the humor of older women flipping each other off and mouthing obscenities, although it is hilarious to see the usually proper Smith frantically chopping up a roofie to slip into Sidda's drink.

    It's fitting. Valentin and Jane may be awakening from life's slumber, but mostly they're just putting us to sleep.
