    The plot is as riddled with holes as Matilda's victims, making her sudden appearances more distracting than distressing.

    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The unhappy dead populate Geoffrey Sax's third-rate thriller White Noise like a pre-Christmas crowd at a suburban mall. This is a shame, since they are neither scary nor sad, and less likely to haunt an audience than simply bore them to death.

    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Oddly enough, though, only the finale is predictable in a movie that appears to have been edited in an early-model blender. Not a single scene connects smoothly with the next.

    It's interesting in the same way the early, rejection episodes of "American Idol" are oddly compelling. But, of course, you can watch those for free.

    Cusack is excellent as Joan, the only woman in the film who values a girl's brains over her body, so it's a shame Fywell treats her with amused scorn.

    With little plot and a stifling set, the ­movie needs stronger performances than its leads can offer.

    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Hartley's satire of consumer-driven sexuality is undermined by the straight-faced decision to cast affectless model Tatiana Abracos as the heroine.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The sort of slick-looking indie that plays well at film festivals, this heavy-handed boxing drama is really just a flyweight bulked up on cliches and false sentimentality.

    This tale of disaffected sexual depravity is practically a parody of the worst of French filmmaking.

    You don't have to rise very high to get above the level of these gags.

    Unfortunately, while director Steve Boyum is a successful stunt man and off-road biker, his skills do not extend to the relatively passive arena of filmmaking. Somehow, he even makes much of the action static.

    Burns doesn't even bother to disguise his New York accent, any more than he does his boredom.

    It's an ugly affair overall, but at least you can say you've never seen such beautiful shirts.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The film does deserve credit for juggling difficult racial and class issues - but with a wacky score, cute puppies and silly side stories also jockeying for space, Bamford's best intentions tumble to a heap long before the movie ends.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    There are moments of amusing melodrama, but for the most part, the action is too preposterous to take seriously, and too serious to be very much fun.

    And though Samantha is written as a sly spoof of Ashlee Simpson, Faris frantically overplays her. She might have taken a tip from Smart, a lovely, understated actress who wastes too much time in lousy films.

    Arnold's heart is in the right place, but somebody needs to save him from himself - and soon.

    A few relevant themes do bubble up from this visually intriguing swamp of self-indulgence, but Arquette's pseudo-philosopher seems to speak for Almereyda when he says, "If there was a point, there wouldn't be a story."
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The result feels as if she (Trish Doolan) gathered all her friends, turned on her camera and let them loose. Which is perfectly fine, if you don't expect anyone to pay to watch the finished product.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A mediocre little thriller that might have promised cheap fun on Blockbuster's direct-to-DVD shelf is instead destined to die a quick death on the big screen.

    There's a fascinating and terrifying story to be told about Elizabeth Bathory, the dramatically depraved 17th century sadist known as the Blood Countess.....This ain't it.

    A muddle of good intentions and bad direction, this amateurish road movie follows a young Brit across Europe as he reconnects with his Jewish roots.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    An exhausting combination of generic thriller, political tract and sentimental weepie.

    In a town as status-conscious as Hollywood, the embarrassment of two "Garfield" movies on your résumé must sting like the Dickens.

    Dramatically miscalculated satire.

    If he earns no other accolades for his directorial debut - a distinct likelihood - Lee Daniels deserves some kind of award just for assembling the most bizarrely random cast of this young century.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A bizarrely off-key animated comedy.
    • 36 Metascore

    As irritating as an ideological college student, this earnest debut from Zak Tucker is determined to teach us a lesson about right and wrong.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A superficial tween comedy that mocks celebutantes like the Olsen twins while simultaneously pushing stars Hilary and Haylie Duff as their replacements.

    After languishing unseen for years, Laurent Firode's long-delayed comedy is finally getting its day in the sun. Too bad there's such a heavy shadow hanging over it.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The movie is hindered by its weak script, but there's also a bigger problem to overcome: If we want to laugh at superficial celebrities, we already have plenty to choose from in real life.
    • 19 Metascore

    Profoundly mediocre supernatural thriller.

    Like a mango rotting in the sun, Frank Flowers' squishy Caribbean thriller has been sitting on the shelf long enough to attract suspicion. Bite into it at your own risk.

    Just another trip down a very dusty road.

    Writer-director Claudia Myers' clunky debut feature makes the case that first-timers should probably focus on either writing or directing.

    A murky swamp of a movie, Terry Gilliam's defiantly surreal Tideland finds every good idea drowning in an excess of indulgence.

    One of Walsch's precepts is that you should never make a living doing something you hate. If I'd known that, I might not have felt obliged to sit through every excruciating minute of this sanctimonious infomercial.
    • 38 Metascore

    Since Adam Sussman's script is as lazy as Asif Kapadia's direction is disjointed, nothing ever makes sense, even after the anticlimatic explanation is revealed.

    Ever been on a blind date that you knew would be dismal from the start? Well, this is the movie version of that date, stretched out over the slowest two hours imaginable.

    Broderick is uptight; DeVito is obnoxious; and, somewhere, Nathan Lane is thanking his lucky stars he didn't get roped into this dreck.

    Where the first film was a seminal forerunner of early stalker classics like "Halloween," this version feels as stale as old gingerbread.

    How do films this stale and generic continue to get made, let alone with topflight talent? Cedric has been stealing scenes from bigger names for nearly a decade; he deserves better than a few amusingly-improvised minutes at the end of his own movie. And so do we.

    Subtlety has never been Perry's strength, but his previous films balanced the sermonizing with good humor and sincerity. Perhaps next time, he'll ease up on the lectures, and bring back the love.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Elizabeth Weitzman
    We never get a sensible explanation for Linda's bizarre double life, or uncover any reason - any reason at all - why Bullock would pick this lazy, patchwork script out of all the ones she surely receives every year.

    Goldberger's stubbornly insular script - adapted from a novel by Harry Crews - might have fared better on stage, where the story would feel more contained than suffocating. But by the time you crawl across this finish line, you'll know just how those sluggish the birdsfeel.

    If there's a lesson to be found in this shameless vanity project, it's that money can buy anything. Even a movie.

    The best that can be said about the big-screen Bratz is that they are not nearly as appalling as their toy-shelf twins.

    In fairness, the new movie from the Lorne Michaels machine does have its amusing moments. It's just most of them can also be found in "Napoleon," "Talladega Nights," "Eagle vs. Shark," and any installment of "Jackass."

    It would be nice to say this predictable fantasy has such a big heart, we can forgive its excesses. But director Kirsten Sheridan overplays nearly every already-corny scene, and there is no chemistry between Russell and Rhys Meyers, who appear to be passing through on their way to better projects.

    Southland Tales does have enough energy and audacity to suggest significant potential. But was it ready for public consumption? The answer is no. It's as simple as that.
