    The best scenes are the ones that Fox shares with Tamala Jones, Wendy Raquel Robinson and the full-figured Monique as her sassy girlfriends. There's a ripe, crackling spontaneity when these women get together.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Takes a long time getting started and doesn't hit its stride until Danny starts coaching a team of fellow cons -- think "Bad News Bears," just nastier.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    An uneasy mixture of tragedy, satire, monster yarn and David Cronenberg creepiness, No Such Thing can't decide what it wants to be or how it needs to get there.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Plays like the cinematic equivalent of a paperback bodice- ripper with embossed type.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    A mean-spirited comedy...that steals the rampaging-psycho-chick formula from ``Fatal Attraction'' and tries to make it funny.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    It's an honest portrayal, but it leaves the audience stranded, without the emotional hook of a character we can care about.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    A pretty lame premise for a movie.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Floats along on the strength of its writing and supporting cast.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Surprisingly tepid and soapy.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Largely and insider's joke.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Gratuitous, yes, but Giannaris has the visual finesse to make it work.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Sweet and insubstantial -- just like the French Christmas cake for which it's named.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    It's like watching a bad update of an Antonioni film.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    A confounding and unsatisfying film.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Has a weirdly divided structure that alternates Irwin's nature segments with clumsy dramatic footage set in the CIA.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    A sexy, mildly entertaining import.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Her direction is weak, her dialogue is cliched, and her acting lacks energy and focus.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Impeccably mounted, nicely scored and beautifully written.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Nossiter's premise is good, and he intrigues us with stylish conceits, but he makes a crucial casting error. Alec ought to be someone we care about.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Campy, overwrought and gleefully cannibalistic in the way it references and regurgitates horror flicks of yore, Scream 3 fulfills its modest ambitions by delivering a glib slasher spoof for the mall crowd.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    The wolf-homosexual analogy is well drawn, but Wolves ultimately feels slight, a tad unfinished -- as if it were conceived as a sketch and hadn't been fleshed out to feature length.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Sentiment, the kind bordering on schmaltz and easy tears, is found in Shower, a well-meaning generational drama.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Light and innocuous.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Even the surprise ending arrives with a thud and makes us wonder why Shyamalan didn't try something new instead of recycling his "Sixth Sense" recipe.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    The dialogue, heavy on sarcasm and puncturing insults, never captures the World War II period but sounds ridiculously anachronistic.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Pure of intention and passably diverting, His Secret Life is light, innocuous and unremarkable.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Lacks insight and finesse, and feels like a boldfaced Rorschach for Smith's own hang-ups.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    Sweet and harmless -- a beach movie in more ways than one -- but it doesn't run awfully deep.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    A superficial diversion.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Guthmann
    A messy, ambitious comedy.
