    Numbskull entertainment.

    A half-baked disappointment...never flies, never comes close to meeting its own expectations.

    The schmaltz is relentless in The Legend of 1900, the newest film from "Cinema Paradiso'' director Giuseppe Tornatore. It comes in waves, it leeches onto every surface and it turns decent actors into sticky-sweet fuzzballs.

    It's a bitter pill to swallow, featuring a quartet of unsympathetic characters and an unrelenting air of misanthropy.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    A wildly implausible thriller.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    This is trash on a big budget, but trash nonetheless.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Hollywood hit-making at its efficient, formulaic worst.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Isn't some sober history lesson that bogs down in long speeches and tedious facts. It's about style, it's about fashion, it's about rock 'n' roll busting out in medieval France.

    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Never comes alive.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    In concept alone, Ravenous is anything but appetizing, but in execution it's worse than you'd imagine.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    A self-indulgent mess.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    They try to make Beverly adorable, and the movie comes off strained and dishonest as a result.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Numbing.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Alan Bates and Charlotte Rampling are the brave stars of this pretty but sterile adaptation of the Anton Chekhov stage classic.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Despite its technical defects and negligent production values, The Flip Side will probably appeal to a Filipino-American audience.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Numbskull cinema scrapes new depths.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Dredges up every cliche about druggy, obnoxious dreamers on the fringes of Hollywood and assumes that said cliches have the power to shock and surprise.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    This is a sloppy hash of a movie, poorly directed and plotted in a way that looks as if it were improvised on the spot.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Knows its audience and doesn't stint on the flatulence jokes, poop jokes, leg-humping dogs and moments of homo-panic.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    A glossy piece of trash.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    This is the downside of Roberts' giant success and her dazzling ability to charm: Every time she goes plain, as she did in the little-seen "Mary Reilly" and "Michael Collins," our princess simply fizzles.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    It isn't simple bad taste that Formula 51 deals in, but a total vacuum of feeling.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    The movie is stiff and schmaltzy and clumsily directed.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Loach and screenwriter Paul Laverty draw everything in simplistic, overstated terms. The good guys are pure and spunky, the bad guys bellicose and one-dimensional, the conflicts stripped of nuance.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Cynical to an extreme, it doesn't illustrate its points but blasts them at us -- in italics, boldface and capital letters.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Self-serious, pointless and silly.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Might be a blast of ridiculous fun -- the way truly bad movies tend to be -- if it weren't so noxious and reprehensible.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Cheesy.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    Feels so moldy and out of date.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Edward Guthmann
    In a movie as hackneyed and as dull as Evolution, the small favors of Duchovny's performance stand out.
