    The film is more of an exercise in pandering and propaganda -- give your baby up for adoption, you selfish pig! -- than the heartfelt drama it aims to be.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    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.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    It has virtually nothing in common with the charming book written by the Gilbreths about their turn-of-the-century family and everything to do with making money on DVD rentals.
    • 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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Amateurishness -- the camera angles sometimes chop off the top of Reiser's head -- aside, The Thing About My Folks is also weirdly dated, especially with regard to technology.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Derivative and self-important, Third Person is a concept and not much more, precisely the sort of film that makes you wonder why anybody would bother to see it at all.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    A tired and unnecessary sequel.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    This is 40 is crude and dull, with a supporting cast that reminds you how utterly uninteresting the main characters are.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Nothing wrong with a movie having a point of view, but watching people spout jargon or exposition doesn't really make for riveting entertainment.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Explicitly invites us to mock its artificiality and giggly cluelessness, but beyond its attractive shell the film rings hollow. These days, even a comedy has got to have a heart.
    • 45 Metascore

    James and Riley might make an interesting Elizabeth and Darcy in a traditional Pride and Prejudice, but this version? It’s dead on arrival.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Loaded with so much drama that the story sinks into a grim, sloppy soap-opera mix.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Mostly, though, The Big Bounce isn't offensive, or even terrible. It's just lazy, relying on numb moviegoers to fork over cash thinking they'll see the next "Get Shorty" or "Out of Sight."
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The film is supposed to be about tolerance, but the only acceptance comes in terms of how the islanders accept the Mormon teachings. Somehow, that doesn't quite feel divine.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The cinematic equivalent of herpes, Sex Tape is an uncomfortable embarrassment to raunchy comedies everywhere. Fortunately, no medication is required after being exposed to it: The effects are not permanent, only painful.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Even the most ardent fans of Braff’s first feature film, the charming Garden State, will struggle to warm up to this self-indulgent, uninvolving drama about an immature, almost-middle-aged guy trying to find himself with questions he should have had answers to long ago.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Tiresome romantic comedy that reinforces every imaginable gay stereotype.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Excruciatingly unamusing.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Sluggish, uninspired drama.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    They pull it off, but even if you believe in Santa, you'll never believe that this is any sort of holiday classic.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Slow-witted, clumsy and almost pathologically reliant on crude name-calling for laughs - Horrible Bosses represents the lowest end of the comedy spectrum.
    • 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.
    • Miami Herald
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    It never comes close to touching the audience's heart.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    This shameless cheerleader of a documentary is the sort of propaganda you might expect in a Republican campaign ad or perhaps featured at a small theater located somewhere in Fantasyland.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    A romantic comedy need not be original to work. It just needs, you know, romance. Something to swoon over. What Two Weeks Notice provides, however, is a lot more messy.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Unimaginative, exasperating film, hopefully but fruitlessly recycled after the success of 2002's ebullient Whale Rider.
    • 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.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The dancing, while reasonably entertaining, isn't anything you haven't seen before on MTV or BET, although the soundtrack might be a worthwhile investment for hip-hop fans.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    If the Giorgios were more interesting, perhaps Brooklyn Lobster would feel less sluggish. But as it is, the crustaceans' unhappy destinies are more compelling than the colorless lives of their captors.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The best story here is the one about how Stolen Summer made it to the screen; that's more compelling than anything that happens in Pete's world.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    No rose-colored memories can improve this tedious interpretation of the famous girl detective's adventures. Nancy Drew falls somewhere between "The Haunted Mansion" and the live-action "Scooby Doo" movies in terms of quality but is more irritating than either.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The arsenal is empty, and there’s nowhere for The Truth About Emanuel to go except — unfortunately — downhill.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    Sometimes I suspect there is secret high-stakes contest in Hollywood among filmmakers to try and come up with a movie without a single original idea. If so, Life As We Know It is a contender.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    There's plenty of action, but it's all the same.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    With its unfathomably stupid plot, half-hearted laughs and slow-witted action, can only be considered a waste of time. Especially yours.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    The actors are their usual reliable selves; you can't really blame them for the unlikely mess Levity becomes.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    A by-the-numbers sports drama with a death grip on clichés and acting every bit as flat as the mat, seems unlikely to draw much of a crowd.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Connie Ogle
    There's no real reason to see this movie. It's exhausting and pointless and not amusing enough to make up for its failings. You can do better. The filmmakers could have done better. Honestly, you're better off staying home and making hummus.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Shameless in its desperate grab at the heartstrings.
    • 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.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    An invasion of the body snatchers is preferable to realizing that the true horror perpetrated here is not on the characters but on the audience.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Watching Wilson and Hudson toil thanklessly through this mess is more laborious than writing the Great American Novel. And a lot less lucrative.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    But if My Date With Drew is what passes for filmmaking these days, the movie industry is in more trouble than we thought.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    The Last Song, yet another maudlin remake of a Nicholas Sparks bestseller.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Dismal.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    If you're going to be offensive, by all means be offensive. Be tasteless! Be "There's Something About Mary." But at least stick to your guns, and don't wuss out when it counts.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    One of those blessedly rare films based on a self-help book, is remarkable in one sense: It prevents "The Lake House" and its magical mailbox from being the most ridiculous concept on screen this summer.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Limps along, spinning not a silken web but an extremely derivative, tattered one not likely to snare anybody's interest.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    If only someone had recognized the inherent vileness of the premise, we might not have been subjected to this hideous Rumor at all.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    This noisy, formulaic film turns out to be immediately forgettable, except for the parts that are so ridiculous they leave you shaking your head in wonder hours later.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Could there be a more inappropriate time to release a cheesy horror movie about evildoing in Louisiana.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    An annoying, tedious little film.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Paced at the speed at which Arctic ice melts, The Dust Factory is a sluggish, heavy-handed fable overloaded with talk of paradise and the man in the moon.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Embarrassingly shoddy film.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    The movie is less painful than having your kidneys removed, but Turistas doesn't offer a trip entertaining enough to take.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    The new Total Recall fails on the most basic levels: Its characters are dull, and its action is duller.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    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.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Like its eponymous subject, it succeeds only in being shallow and crass and not very much fun to be around.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Yes, it's every bit as brainless as the trailers suggest.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    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.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    The film does provide some nice shots of Venice and offers one solid reason to display a little patriotic fervor: We do have the freedom to avoid such rote, shallow dullness.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Much like the play within it, Hamlet 2 is lousy. The main difference is that the play is SUPPOSED to be awful. The movie about the play is supposed to be funny.
    • 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.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Exhausts you with its derivative stupidity, leaving you weak and bored and weary of comedy that's not funny, action that's not exciting, dialogue that's not clever. It's not even an adequate rip-off of the TV show.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Don't waste your money.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    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.
    • 29 Metascore

    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.
    • 33 Metascore

    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.
    • 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.
    • 24 Metascore

    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.
    • 38 Metascore

    The comedy is slapstick, the colors Day Glo, the outcome inevitable.

    The Back-up Plan is about as much fun as 36 hours of labor, only you don't get to go home with a baby at the end. Instead, you leave with a throbbing headache and a lot of questions about why anybody still thinks Jennifer Lopez can anchor a movie.

    You don't believe Celeste for a minute when she tells a new guy that she needs to be alone for awhile. You know he's coming back in short order to provide the happy ending. Here's hoping she doesn't want him to get a job, too.

    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.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    A devastating lack of romantic connection between its two stars. Lopez had more chemistry with "Enough" co-star Billy Campbell, and for most of that film they were beating the hell out of each other.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Connie Ogle
    Charmless and grating and immediately forgettable.
    • 25 Metascore

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    There are not enough synonyms for ''bad'' to describe the pretension and utter banality of the masturbatory The Brown Bunny, a film so exhaustively awful even its creator Vincent Gallo once disavowed it.

    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.
