    Proves an absolute chore to sit through.

    The Dying Gaul becomes so overwrought in the last act that it ends up as pure histrionics.
    • 50 Metascore

    The picture's biggest problem is that no one is sympathetic.

    That this mess should come from the hand of Istvan Szabo, the brilliant Hungarian director of "Mephisto" and "Colonel Redl," is the real shocker.

    The fact that Romance was written and directed by a woman doesn't make the film any better; it simply makes it objectionable on other grounds.

    Awful narration almost ruins the ghostly, gorgeous Running Free.

    A wobbly Basinger and a feeble screenplay doom I Dreamed of Africa.

    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Jean Oppenheimer
    Doesn't work as comedy or drama or anything in between.

    Meet Joe Black takes an interesting idea--Death assumes human form and comes to earth to learn about human existence--and reduces it to a flat, uninspired, interminably slow movie.

    The first Baby Geniuses, released in 1999, was one of the most inane, humorless, ill-conceived, poorly acted comedies of the year. As difficult as it is to imagine, the sequel is even worse, earning an F.
