    Late Marriage's stiffness is unlikely to demonstrate the emotional clout to sweep U.S. viewers off their feet.
    • 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.

    For most U.S. audiences, Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, an Academy Award nominee for best foreign language film, is going to feel more like a history lesson than a movie.

    As it spins along at a reasonably good clip - no one is going to mistake it for the slicker, more action-packed "Salt" - The Double unravels its secrets, which prove to be its undoing.

    If you're making a movie that purports to be about real love, at the very least, you have to make the audience care whether the lovers work out their problems.

    One of the problems with Rampart is that we've seen guys like Dave in movies and on TV for years now. The bad cop psyche has been delved into pretty deeply on all fronts, most notably in FX's brilliant series "The Shield."

    What The Bank Job ends up stealing is all your precious time.

    Unfortunately Miracle is long on cliché and short on originality.
    • 67 Metascore

    Watching A Late Quartet feels more like sitting through a Classical Music 101 lecture than entertainment.
    • 66 Metascore

    A slightly dull film by photographer Sam Jones.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The film isn’t overlong. But it tries to fit so many themes into its brief running time — that it merely touches on most conflicts instead of exploring them in depth or with any delicacy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The Great Debaters keeps things on the surface and pushes the obvious buttons, hoping you won't notice its distinct lack of depth.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The film hardly aims to be serious entertainment, and, to its credit, it's never uninteresting visually.
    • 64 Metascore

    The idea of cracking a secret message from the enemy during war is thrilling; making the process interesting to watch is more problematic.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Soon settles down into a drizzle of steady mediocrity, never living up to all the frenzy of those first few moments.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Freedom Writers is prone to throwing in unnecessary plot developments, so it never quite succeeds as anything more than "Dangerous Minds" Redux.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Comes off curiously flat.

    Shakespeare's rich language does not fit soundly inside every mouth.
    • 63 Metascore

    The film's opening credits are terrific, and the first 10 or 15 minutes -- in which Ford and Arthur speedily load up on beer at the local pub -- are absorbing and funny. It's such a promising start that it's doubly deflating to realize that once they land on Zaphod's spaceship, the humor vaporizes.

    Chéri never fulfills its emotional promise.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Feels more like a lecture you've already heard than a galvanizing call to action.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The film is weighted down by a dour sensibility at odds with the book's insouciant charm.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Ends up as colorless as Reeves' first Superman suit.
    • 62 Metascore

    The uneven Goldmember seems to take a big step toward the extremely juvenile, with more scatological and fewer sex jokes
    • 62 Metascore

    The only positive thing about the aimless film The Yellow Handkerchief is the idea that William Hurt may be ready for his Jeff Bridges moment.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Neurotic New Yorkers, messed up relationships, inept analysts, infidelity -- Ira & Abby has them all, and it's anything but refreshing to trudge through this well-worn territory again.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    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.

    If Magic Mike XXL is bulging with anything, it’s inane conversation.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    What's missing most in the film, though, is a palpable sense of tension.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Put in such an uncomfortable position, the audience needs something to fall back on, like chemistry between its stars. Here that's half-hearted at best.
