    So many stars means so little room for character and plot.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Transcends its video-box-shelf-filler pedigree only when it's actually indulging in guy stuff, mostly of the frat-boy, beer-commercial variety.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    In lieu of developing a plot, the brothers opt to cram their cache of forced quirks and hit-or-miss sketches into a framework of predictabilities.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    The rather sad performances boast more clams than a Pismo beach party.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Glitter is, if nothing else, comfortable with what it is, namely earnestly made, wholehearted schlock.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Paymer is the key to this mild-mannered comedy built on easy setups and borscht-belt one-liners.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Nothing, in fact, really fits together, most notably the partnership of Ford and Hartnett: Looking weathered yet professional, Ford carries what he can, but pretty and sullen Hartnett barely comes to life, leaving his partner stranded, and straining.

    Assante, restrained and thoughtful, reveals Vinnie's midlife bewilderment as much as his bred-in machismo. His performance is too delicate, though, to stand up to the rigidly formulaic schemes
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    The young filmmaker clearly needs to experience a bit more of la vraie vie before his own observations can take in more than the clumsy romantic feints and parries of early adulthood.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    How much can one girl grapple with over the course of an hour and a half?
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    You can't see the movie for the footage, so thick is it with digital tricks and furious action.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Sarkissian's script is both overwrought and undercooked, crammed with floridly senseless speeches.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Voice-overs and commentaries are piled on top of contrived intimate moments until, despite some easygoing performances, the movie -- the actual movie -- is a blur of undercooked motivations and halfhearted improv.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    It's perhaps Greendale's greatest flaw that, rather than stirring the blood, its heartfelt call to arms comes off as a sentimental, even trite, notion from an increasingly distant past.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    The flashes of warm, human talent that pulse periodically from the ensemble -- Byrne and Foxx, particularly -- only make their presence in this terrifically bad movie all the more baffling.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    If there's any reason to watch this otherwise inept romance, it's to witness the late Nell Carter nail a Louis Jordan tune, and to see master comic Jonathan Winters downplay his more manic tendencies and effortlessly spin gold from straw.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    The lack of cohesion and conviction is disconcerting, and it allows the movie to veer dangerously close to exploitation. Its subjects -- and its viewers -- deserve more.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 40 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Might make a fun Lifetime TV movie -- if it weren't quite so morose.
