    A lovely soundtrack by Irish balladeers the Saw Doctors can't make up for the rest of this belabored labor of love.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    Collapsed into the black hole of its own mythology.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    The latest offender in the odd "let's see what the cute and funny mentally ill can teach us" genre, this mystery/domestic drama commits all the usual sins and clichés.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Frank Lovece
    The film's one saving grace is 18-year-old Ellen Muth, who gives one of the screen's most natural, non-Hollywood portrayals of a child.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    Inconsistency of tone and internal logic plagues the film throughout.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    It's a classic fantasy scenario, overflowing with creative possibilities, but Carrey's Nolan isn't charmingly misguided or comically loathsome enough to deserve the lesson; he's just a big, inconsequential crybaby.

    The annoying Reg Rogers, on the other hand, who plays Little Caesar creator Raoul Berman, delivers his lines like a stoned Pee-wee Herman, and the scene in which Billy Crystal mutters and drools in a restaurant is just disturbing for anyone who admired his work in the past.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    So bewildering it's almost entertaining, this comedy of fiftysomethings and their extramarital affairs is one of those films you can actually see flailing for life.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Frank Lovece
    That rare, unfortunate thing, a total misfire of a movie.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    Sexist, plot-hole-riddled movie equates women with cows and men with bulls.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    This one makes De Niro's recent film "15 Minutes" look like "Network." Even worse, aside from a few scenes with Shatner, it just isn't funny.
    • 27 Metascore

    If you try to imagine a breezy Cary Grant movie in which Grant makes penis and fart jokes, you'll have some idea just how wretched it is.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Frank Lovece
    Stiffly animated and featuring uninspired songs.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 30 Frank Lovece
    Even the snowboarding scenes that might have been the visceral heart of this thing are cut in such a way that we never get more than a few seconds of full-frame athletic skill; despite the real-life snowboarders doing the stunt work (including Rob "Sluggo" Boyce, Tara Dakides and Javas Lehn), it all looks like editing-room cheats.
