    Whichever side of the aisle you inhabit, you will leave The Iron Lady feeling disgusted; you will also feel cheated - of information, insight or even an identifiable point of view.

    Cocaine Cowboys is a tabloid headline, a movie as oppressive and inarticulate as the lives it represents.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A limp urban comedy not nearly as whimsical as its title.
    • 34 Metascore

    Though the film's final, disturbing image forces race to the forefront and belatedly raises wider issues of persecution, its most controversial suggestion is not that Jesus might have been black but that he might have been a really terrible actor.

    A Rubik’s Cube of shifting sexual orientation and elaborate sex fantasies, “Sloppy Seconds” gathers all the accouterments of soft pornography -- cheesy music, low-rent acting and attractively framed genitals -- into a plot of stunning imbecility.

    National Lampoon’s Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj harnesses smut and silliness to an oddly innocent tale of true love.
    • 43 Metascore

    A limp sci-fi comedy with fewer laughs than a meeting of Abductees Anonymous.

    This dissociation leaves the supporting cast to its own devices, with no one suffering more than the appealing Eva Mendes as Johnny's true love, Roxanne. If Ms. Mendes ever finds a director willing to allow her to perform with her shirts fully buttoned, there will be no stopping her.

    A tiresome blend of overacting and underwriting, The Salon moves from one predictable conversation to another -- the lack of available black men, the wondrousness of Bill Clinton -- without originality or comic rhythm.
    • 44 Metascore

    Rehashing characters and plots from the "Law & Order" playbook, the director, Rafal Zielinski, supplements his material with religious iconography and more gauzy close-ups than a Barbra Streisand marathon.

    Sweetness and whimsy fill the screen to capacity in I'm Reed Fish, a rural coming-of-age tale that's so laid-back that its cast is almost horizontal.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The movie has been thoroughly eclipsed by "Captivity" the marketing.

    Arriving as inevitably as puberty, Bratz introduces the swollen-headed, fashion-addicted dolls of the title to a live-action movie.

    Underdog may have been originally created to sell cereal for General Mills, but this latest incarnation couldn't sell Frisbees at a dog park.

    Luridly earnest and laughably immoral, Illegal Tender is an old genre movie with a new look. Call it Hispanixploitation.

    The writer and director, Joby Harold, claims to have been inspired to write the film while suffering from a particularly painful kidney stone. Watching it may be for some a comparable experience.

    The film version is now being granted a limited release. Exactly how limited will depend on your tolerance for tasteless behavior, extravagant overacting and a decibel level to rival the unveiling of Oprah’s Favorite Things.

    A poker-faced puzzle whose biggest shock is the absence of Sarah Michelle Gellar.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The movie speeds up and slows down as though controlled by a director in the grip of competing medications. For those who make it to the final beatdown, however, the only pill worth taking is the one that makes you forget.

    Harnessing mostly fine actors to a wholly asinine script, the directors, Melisa Wallack and Bernie Goldmann, have created a movie as spineless and dithering as its benighted namesake.

    Expelled is an unprincipled propaganda piece that insults believers and nonbelievers alike.
    • 49 Metascore

    A dreary, interminable drama written and directed by Eva Aridjis, is exactly one-third of a good movie. That third is Frank Wood's beautifully modulated and modest central performance.
    • 33 Metascore

    All in all, this is a movie best enjoyed with a snoot full and a morbid disposition.
    • 39 Metascore

    The movie's amoral momentum is fatally slowed by an acronym-heavy script and flimsy characterizations that offer fine actors -- including Rip Torn as Tom's contemptuous father and Naomie Harris as his missed opportunity -- little to play.
    • 26 Metascore

    Features annoying characters navigating unbelievable situations.

    Soured by its enervated star and uninspired writing, the movie offers only tiny moments of joy, like a hailstorm of gumballs that's unexpectedly magical.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Gives you the creeps, the giggles and the groans in almost equal measure.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Suffers from abusive close-ups, repetitive fight sequences and uninspired demon design.

    There used to be entertainment in the dodging and wit in the scripts; now there’s 3-D.

    According to the press notes, pandorum means “Orbital Dysfunctional Syndrome”; whatever that is, by the end of the movie I was convinced I had caught it.
