    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.

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

    Proves an absolute chore to sit through.

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

    It's like an amateur theater production. Reiner rushes through the setup in such a mad dash that it feels like a cartoon.

    There is something distinctly self-satisfied about Amy's Orgasm that rubs the viewer the wrong way. The film should come with a warning label: Vanity project ahead!

    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.

    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.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 20 Jean Oppenheimer
    Awful narration almost ruins the ghostly, gorgeous Running Free.
    • 55 Metascore

    The predominantly amateur cast is painful to watch, so stilted and unconvincing are the performances. Poor Roth has nobody to play against and flounders in trying to keep the ship upright. Herzog aims for a kind of operatic sweep that he fails to achieve.

    Numbingly feeble -- The dialogue is witless, the situations are lame, the humor juvenile and the chemistry between the stars nonexistent.

    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.
