    Mademoiselle C should please fashion devotees while leaving everyone else scratching their heads.

    While it features some pungently observational moments, Below Dreams is ultimately too diffuse and disjointed to have the desired impact.
    • 45 Metascore

    Representing a sort of equal opportunity religious variation on an all-too-familiar theme, The Possession is a Jewish-themed "Exorcist" that, if nothing else, should discourage the practice of buying antique wooden boxes at flea markets.

    Never manages to rise above its thin premise, with its claustrophobic setting smacking more of stage than screen.

    Attempting to be this generation's "Risky Business," The Babysitters is the sort of ribald morality tale that manages to feel sleazy and decorous at the same time.

    Mild in both humor and impact, this well-cast comedy should provide welcome diversion during the holidays for audiences looking for a somewhat lighter experience than the crucifixion of Christ or the massacre at the Alamo.
    • 27 Metascore

    Not even the estimable comic chops of Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker can lift it above the level of ordinary.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Berenger uses his weathered visage and trademark intensity to good effect, but his efforts are undercut by the overwhelmingly cliched script.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Unfortunately, this feature, originally made for Italian television, doesn't quite do justice to its stirring subject.

    Despite the storyline's inherent drama, the meandering Freetown, much like the characters it depicts, takes far too long to get to its destination.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    The film is elevated by the quality of the performances, with Breslin and Henley movingly affecting as the closely bound sisters and Sorvino convincingly conveying her character’s inability to function.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Actually offers some decent scares before descending into typical horror film bombast.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Desert Dancer too often lapses into generic cinematic clichés, failing to live up to the dramatic potential of its subject matter.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    A confusing blend of noir mystery and screwball comedy, Testosterone never manages to reconcile its conflicting tones and ultimately lacks the wit necessary to fuel its outlandish plotting.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    A Small Section of the World ably fulfills its mission of delivering its inspirational tale, but still seems mainly suitable for a corporate meeting.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    As bland and forgettable as its title.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Reveals a definite been-there, done-that feeling.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Subject matter this powerfully charged shouldn't feel like a study aid.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Sub-par video camerawork and editing make the film a trying and tedious experience, despite the engaging personality and impressive physicality of its star.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    If viewers have any remaining doubts as to whether or not the dams are a good idea, the gorgeous shots of the threatened landscapes are bound to erase them.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Ultimately, the sex scenes seem of far more interest to the filmmakers than the narrative or characterizations, which are rendered in frustratingly vague and often deliberately confusing fashion.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    The fairly routine plot is made somewhat more interesting by the infusion of issues regarding morality and faith, but ultimately Three, for all its philosophizing, is little more than a standard serial-killer movie with pretensions.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    The gorgeous physicality is more impressive than the sketchy storyline of this dance-centric drama.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Despite Meat Loaf’s hammily entertaining turn as the desperate owner of a musical theater summer camp, the film fails to live up to its obvious inspirations.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Remakes of '80s-era cult-favorite horror flicks seem to be all the rage these days. But they have to be better than this formulaic effort to replace the already not-so-great originals.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    The film lacks the originality or wit to differentiate it from the countless other indie romantic comedies littering our screens.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Boasts an uncommon stylization and some first-rate comic performances. But its provocative setup is undercut by its lengthy depiction of an all-too-familiar game of cat and mouse between the culprits and a dogged detective.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    The sort of quirky independent comedy that strives for hipness but ultimately just feels contrived and derivative.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Modest comedy-drama.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Frank Scheck
    Although it has a visceral intensity, this teen-centered prison movie doesn't avoid the familiar tropes of its genre.
