    Steeped in pitch-perfect nostalgia and propelled by equal doses of comedy and tragedy.

    But the blame for the stultifying Mooseport lies squarely on the shoulders of the screenwriters and anyone else who assumed the limited Romano could carry such a dated, lousy film. The results are in: He can't do it, at least not without a lot more help.

    An incredibly lazy movie -- but not an unbearable one, thanks to Aaron Eckhart's charm.

    The Last Song, yet another maudlin remake of a Nicholas Sparks bestseller.
    • 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.

    Dismal.

    It's just awful. Pointless, lazy, derivative and paralyzingly dull.

    The less said about Simpson's performance the better. From the neck down she fulfills all the requirements, but, honestly, I think General Lee might do a better job with the dialogue.

    The film is probably not evil incarnate, but it's so irritating you wish it -- and just about everyone in it -- would just shut up and get out of your room.
    • 33 Metascore

    Rich in cliché and brimming with the sort of potent idiocy that can only be found in January-release romantic comedies, Leap Year manages to do every possible thing wrong.
    • 32 Metascore

    It's an hour longer than the average sitcom, but The Wedding Date isn't much different from what you see crammed into any TV comedy lineup, minus the laugh track.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    It's an extremely raunchy hybrid of "Bridget Jones's Diary."
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Paranoia has a promising foundation — betrayal, danger and corporate espionage are solid building blocks of suspense. But the movie turns out to be more exasperating than exciting.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    An apocalyptic Bob Dylan song made cinematic, with all the vision and poetry dissipating in the transfer. It's as if the filmmakers listened to "Desolation Row" just one time too many.

    Watching Wilson and Hudson toil thanklessly through this mess is more laborious than writing the Great American Novel. And a lot less lucrative.
    • 32 Metascore

    A lot like getting socks for Christmas: Better than finding coal in your stocking but not exactly as thrilling as unwrapping a big-screen HDTV.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Blended isn’t Sandler’s funniest movie or his best, but it is a big step up from the dregs he’s been churning out, a messy, shaggy dog of a comedy that you can’t help but like even as it sheds all over your house.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Just one more in the plague of weak Cinderella stories released in the past year. It's too sugary to be good for you, but in the end, its over-the-top sweetness won't kill you.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    There's no real artistry to this: It's as though Parker has just seen "Seven" and suffered some sort of David Fincher flashback.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Unfortunately there’s far too little magic in this clumsy attempt to marry fantasy and realism; the film doesn’t have the grace or imagination to bridge the gaps between the two.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    It's not quite true to say that death is preferable to sitting through Over HerDead Body, but it's a safe bet that if you struggle through this witless romantic comedy the lure of being six feet under will cross your mind.

    Don't expect perfection, and you'll emerge from this goofy movie all in one piece, with reasonably entertained kids and a milder headache.

    The idea, I suppose, is that love connects us all, even when it goes wrong. Fortunately, even love doesn't usually go quite so badly as this movie does.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    It is a grim and monotonous affair despite the overkill of bad guys -- a trio of evil spirits plus a bonus serial killer -- mixed with a few cheap shocks futilely intended to make the audience jump.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The guys are more amusing than not, and they display the easy chemistry of real-life pals.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Better than you might expect despite its awkward, slow beginning, drawing you in gradually and paying off in surprisingly effective and bittersweet ways.

    The germ of a better film lies in that joke, but Schaeffer doesn't quite dig it out. Instead, we get painfully unfunny scenes that make us think that when it comes to writing comedy, Schaeffer should stick to his own rule: never again.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Shameless in its desperate grab at the heartstrings.
    • 29 Metascore

    Premonition is actually more daring than you might expect. Not bold enough to be memorable, maybe, but just enough to keep you from falling asleep in front of the TV.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The ghastly first half of this romantic comedy -- is as close to unwatchable as any moment in "Bride Wars." The fact that it stars Renée Zellweger just makes it harder to bear.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Fool's Gold isn't so much a film as an opportunity to pay homage to Matthew McConaughey's impressive physique.

    According to legend, a silver bullet can kill a werewolf. Too bad it can't slay bad writing, without which the ill-conceived Red Riding Hood would not exist.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Just My Luck is way too long for such a slight premise, and Lohan, so appealing in Mean Girls, is years too young for the part.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    There's only one excuse for the sentimental and ham-handed I Am Sam, and it's not to tout the rights of the mentally disabled.

    Nobel Son is not good. Nor is it bad. It exists, instead, somewhere in the middle ground of interesting enough to hold one's attention without actually providing any fresh, sensible or nonderivative developments.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    The sloppy charms of Just Married don't exactly break new ground, but they don't make you want to swear off romantic comedy forever, and in these "Maid in Manhattan" days that's saying something.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Embarrassingly shoddy film.

    Frothy as it is, SATC2 is best when it's about the women, not the wardrobe.

    Young girls are the only ones likely to enjoy this vapid road-trip movie.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    There is humor in the familiar just waiting to be rehashed for new generations, and A Guy Thing surely isn't the last stupid leave-'em-at-the-altar film we're likely to see.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Silly, tedious, inept disaster.
    • 27 Metascore

    Wild Hogs is a paint-by-numbers comedy, borrowing most of its broad strokes from sitcoms, and not clever ones like "The Office" and 3"0 Rock," either.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Twisted is a movie so derivative it's hard to pinpoint exactly how many other thrillers it poaches from.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    The search for true love is the backbone of romantic comedy as well as the lifeblood of match.com, but this film's clumsy, completely inauthentic portrayal of it is handled in a shockingly tedious fashion.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    Amusing at times but never more than a modest diversion, lacking the cleverness and imagination required to turn it into more than a one-joke movie.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Filmmaker Christopher Cain has turned a national tragedy into a teen romance, and not in a grand, entertaining, "Titanic" way.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    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.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    The sort of entertainment that makes you happy to be grown up and able to avoid the current onslaught of trite, lazy, unimaginative films aimed at tween-agers.
    • 25 Metascore

    Tale is anything but spellbinding.

    Could there be a more inappropriate time to release a cheesy horror movie about evildoing in Louisiana.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    It's a cannibalization of "Sleeping With the Enemy," a not-so-good Julia Roberts film, with a ridiculous female-empowerment subtext and a relentlessly stupid script that goes nowhere you can't predict before the opening credits roll.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Surprisingly sweet and, dare we say it, old-fashioned, with an engaging sense of humor that's a definite improvement on lame, lowbrow efforts such as "Little Nicky."
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    An insipid comedy in which the women are shallow, acquisitive, backstabbing, selfish harridans.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Insulting to anyone with a healthy sense of humor and the simple desire to laugh.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    A cheesy horror film can offer a vicarious cheap thrill or two. Darkness Falls offers only a test of the patience, not even providing much chance to laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of its villain.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Yes, it's every bit as brainless as the trailers suggest.
    • 22 Metascore

    New Year's Eve is not unbearable. It's not bad, but it's not good, either. It delivers exactly what you expect: pretty faces, shallow romance and a mythical fanaticism about an event in a friendly Manhattan unblemished by hyper-vigilant security measures, obnoxious drunks or New York Jets fans.
    • 22 Metascore

    They pull it off, but even if you believe in Santa, you'll never believe that this is any sort of holiday classic.

    In the end, Bratz celebrates something even more important than good grades or good friends: the vital acquisition of totally awesome shoes. Fitting for a movie that exists only to separate you from your paycheck.

    Here's what is bad: this movie.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Charmless and grating and immediately forgettable.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    It’s bad enough to make you look askance at Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, and Maya Rudolph, all of whom deserve a chance to do something funny other than pose as wives exuding various degrees of sexiness.

    Sometimes it seems as though Hollywood can't make a decent action movie anymore. Now that's a thought to make you go ballistic.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Downright terrible: impossible to enjoy, impossible to believe.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Not that the film is so horrendously offensive -- it's almost, and I hesitate to say this, too stupid to provoke insult -- but it's juvenile enough to suck a few IQ points out of any audience member with a brain cell.
    • 17 Metascore

    Insulting, witless comedy.
    • 14 Metascore

    Plentiful helpings of dreadful acting, confusing action cinematography, choppy editing and embarrassing dialogue, with the added bonus of a plot almost as dumb as that of the original film.

    You should know right up front that even if you realize you're being manipulated you are probably going to weep anyway.
    • 13 Metascore

    A tired and unnecessary sequel.

    The most astounding thing about this abysmal comedy -- aside from the fact the studio actually allowed critics within a mile of it -- is that it's so ghastly it is beneath even the meager dignity of Paris Hilton.
