    There are moments, too, where the forced hipness falls aside and the two lead characters just plain relate, realistically and maturely, with a seasoned playfulness that is truly charming.

    It's not that What a Girl Wants is dreadful; it's merely slapdash, wildly inconsistent in tone and style, and mind-numbingly predictable in character and plot.

    Ultimately, this film is only scary if you're afraid of artfully self-conscious, grainy cinematography.

    So, how's the food? The camera never even goes up close. That's the kind of restaurant documentary this is.

    Muniz has better secret-agent toys to play with, funnier lines and sidekicks helping him out, and a bit more discerning director in Kevin Allen ("The Big Tease").

    Choppy, cheesy historical war epic really has only a couple of things going for it, and its biggest asset remains the heroic popular legend that inspired its making.

    Highly unoriginal tale.

    Ultimately undercut by its fictional elements and its flat characters.

    For a movie about serial killings and media sensationalism, Cronicas sure is wimpy.

    Isn't so much awful as it is self-conscious, overdone, shallow, and just not up to the level of its star.

    Coming and going through the wall's checkpoints is a tiresome and undignified process that makes US airport security look like a cocktail reception.

    This nostalgic licorice whip of a movie assumes there's still an audience for a straight-faced, family-friendly salute to the 1970s heyday of competitive roller disco.

    Keep your big-budget horror movie expectations locked away in a separate crawl space, because this grainy feature debut from writer-director Ti West demands that you buy into the silliness, and the cheese.

    Redmon's film is a welcome reminder that everything comes from somewhere and responsible people should at least pause to examine the label. For one thing, that's how bigger and better documentaries get made.

    A so-so documentary about another fascinating, underreported piece of Harlem history.

    Everyone's Hero is sincere and heartwarming; sometimes it's funny.

    As cartoon rip-offs go, Open Season can be surprisingly entertaining, in a made-for-6-year-olds kind of way.

    To those filmgoers who wouldn't know Rat Fink from Barton Fink, this reviewer's advice is: Pass. The latest counterculture tribute by Mann, director of 1988's "Comic Book Confidential" and 1999's "Grass," is as proudly silly as it is informative, and it can't help that a critical amount of brand coolness gets lost in the translation.

    Doesn't deliver on a lot of fronts. But then again it gives us full-on Faithfull, who manages to bare herself completely without ever actually getting undressed.

    Fails to drum up much excitement.

    It's mostly flat, despite being presented in 3-D, and the writing is so unimaginative that at one point a character yells out "yabba dabba doo!"

    The best thing about Saint John of Las Vegas is that it makes you really appreciate guys like David Lynch and Joel and Ethan Coen.

    Unfortunately for Tatum and Seyfried, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams did a far more convincing version of this same basic dance in “The Notebook.’’

    It’s cute and clever to a point -- especially if you don’t know much about the film’s premise going in -- but then the cleverness runs on like the one-note punch line of an interminable “Saturday Night Live’’ sketch, sponsored by Audi.

    To see this final installment is to know: It’s time.

    Ramona and Beezus the movie, should not be confused with "Beezus and Ramona'' the book.

    Kevin James's latest comedy doesn't promise any bing or bang, only boom. Take it at its word.

    For all the controversy surrounding Buffalo Soldiers, you'd think the film would at least be interesting.

    Falls flat on two fronts: It's neither deep and interesting enough to be a brainteaser nor sufficiently thrilling to count as a mindless diversion.

    Dukakis gets off some of the film's best lines and keeps the worst from sinking the whole affair; Polley's role is limited, but her character's audition for a feminine hygiene commercial is by far the best thing here.
