    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    A pretty woeful affair...a sitcom disguised as a movie.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Allen, who's a natural charmer, seems to be at half-strength here.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Doesn't anyone get sick of this same old routine?
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    A longwinded, predictable scenario.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Even by its own please-the-mob standards, this movie is lacking.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    The movie automatically pegs itself for the straight-to-video sci-fi rental shelf.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    The actual movie is the cinematic equivalent of cheap Chinese egg rolls: all flour and cabbage shreds, maybe half a nibble of pork.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    The only reason to watch this movie is for stargazing, nice shots of the sea and to revel in a world where false promises, lies and empty posturing are actively encouraged.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Dramatically lackluster.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Head-scratchingly ordinary, given Schwarzenegger's need to prove he's still a virile (i.e., non-aging) action hero.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    It's about as deep as electronic white noise.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    A second-rate romantic comedy.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Dull, plodding comedy.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Dramatically and conceptually, the movie sits there, flat, naked and trying too hard with too little.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    This saved-by-an-angel story is redeemed mostly by Smith's comic instincts.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Its heart is vaguely in the right place.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    All fire-and-brimstone bunk, a tired compendium of involuntary crucifixions, grim messages carved into human flesh, fly buzzings, ominous choral chants on the soundtrack and at least one head twisting.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    A cold, protracted and unemotional affair.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Stumbles and screeches on for an interminable two hours.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    It's difficult to concentrate on the story. Not that there's much to concentrate on anyway.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Surprisingly uninvolving, the least effective of Neufeld's Clancy-based movies. Surely he was not looking for this kind of film: one that bombs literally and figuratively.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Roll past this casino.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Although it contains many visually compelling passages and some provocative moments, the movie is strangely banal and simplistic.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Well, it could have been good. But this goofy homage to Kiss fans gets dry mouth pretty fast.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    But by the end of the movie -- which seems to last longer than the Crusades -- all the good stuff has dissipated.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    All dancing and hugging and no good.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    The kid chews up the scenery like a baby T-Rex, egged on, no doubt, by director Agresti.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    No darn good.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Just a few guilty laughs, a predictable resolution and repeated close-ups of that dog jerking its head to one side, doing the cute thing.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Desson Thomson
    Suffers from melodramatic overkill.
