    That the film doesn't rise above the formulaic is a particular disappointment as these stunningly brave Rescue Swimmers deserve a film as daring as they are.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 James Greenberg
    The film and the controversy should generate interest at the boxoffice, but it's more a story about media manipulation and parental responsibility than art.
    • 66 Metascore

    For all of its access and exposure, American Teen seems skin-deep. It's well shot, with good production values and lots of cool music. But it's fun and facile in much the same way reality TV is.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 James Greenberg
    Even if it's a one-joke movie that runs out of steam, director Scott Sanders manages to keep the gag going for 90 minutes.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 James Greenberg
    More atmospheric than compelling.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 James Greenberg
    Great material, but the film never catches fire.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 James Greenberg
    What starts out seeming like a poor man's Woody Allen morphs into something closer to an American version of "Scenes From a Marriage."
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 James Greenberg
    Alternately compelling and dramatically limp, the film scores points for exploring unfamiliar territory but lacks the emotional depth to make some very strange behavior believable.

    Their heart is in the right place, and their tale is colorful, complete with Indian dancers in ceremonial costumes dancing on a street corner.

    Designed to make you laugh and squirm, Lovers of Hate does more of the latter.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 James Greenberg
    Cleverly put together by writer-director Matthew Bate, the film takes a bizarre, cult folktale and turns it into a picture that is more provocative than entertaining.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 James Greenberg
    More dumb than funny.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 James Greenberg
    For much of the way, the film just feels like it's pressing too hard to make an impression.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 James Greenberg
    It comes off as an unpleasant, unrealistic morality tale. Loaded with music and pretty bodies, the film has a chance to lasso a young, indiscriminate audience of Kutcher fans.
