    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    For the most part, it's both sitcomishly predictable and cloying in its attempts to be poignant.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Fake-sounding dialogue, some over-deliberate performances and five amazingly trite linked stories.
    • New York Post
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    A campy docu-drama about the secretly gay world of 1950's muscle magazines.
    • New York Post
    • 21 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Unfortunately, this version of the familiar formula lacks the inspiration, genuine wit and raunchy charm of 1998's outrageous "There's Something About Mary."
    • New York Post
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    An awkward hybrid of genres that just doesn't work.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    In any case, the presence of O'Hara, Kline, Ramis, Black, Tomlin and John Lithgow (who plays Shaun's father) serve mainly to underline the feebleness of the screenplay and the slackness of the direction.

    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Every good joke in the movie is to be found in those trailers.
    • New York Post
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    A slow, self-consciously low-key, very dull film that strains for eeriness with long silences and affectless performances.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Heavy-handed, predictable and almost completely unbelievable.
    • New York Post
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    A particularly gross exploitation of the Holocaust for financial gain.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Essentially a downscale TV movie about spousal and child abuse.
    • New York Post
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Even a hardened voyeur would require the patience of Job to get through this interminable, shapeless documentary about the swinging subculture.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    A misguided exercise - a crude merger of "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Schindler's List" that somehow reminds you of "Hogan's Heroes."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    A misfiring black comedy oddly reminiscent of all those bad 1990s movies about strippers getting killed at bachelor parties.
    • New York Post
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    It's a thinly disguised lecture about intolerance, spotted with historical inaccuracies and groaning with dialogue so dreadful that it makes a fine cast look ridiculous again and again.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    It's unfortunate that the people DuBowski profiles tend to be self-indulgent or otherwise unappealing. It's still more unfortunate that the film focuses more on relatively easy issues of acceptance.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Best watched while doing a crossword or reading the paper.
    • New York Post
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    This movie, cynically and patronizingly aimed at Seagal's predominantly "urban" audience, is sad, tedious proof that even violent exploitation isn't what it used to be.
    • New York Post
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Mostly an unfunny, rather dull affair.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 38 Jonathan Foreman
    Helplessly clichéd, predictable and unaware of its own lameness, it could easily become a camp classic on the order of "Grease 2" and "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    The film is only 91 minutes long, but it seemed to stretch out for days.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    It features well-below-par writing, acting, direction, special effects and music, while oozing a nauseating New Age sentimentality that undermines any tension in the underlying story.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A surprisingly nasty fable about a particularly silly, very English brand of animal-rights extremism.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Resembles a period version of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" - played dead straight.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A crass, mechanical attempt at a thriller that should have gone straight to video.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    This oddly scrambled new version eventually falls apart so badly you feel embarrassed for the people who made it.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    An almost chuckle-free mess, so amateurish and lame that the cast often has that embarrassed look you see on dogs given ridiculous haircuts.
    • New York Post
    • 67 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Self-righteous, economically illiterate and sometimes flatly dishonest.
    • New York Post
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A deep disappointment to fans of sci-fi and the once great John Carpenter.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    In the end, it is inadequate, juiceless storytelling that deprives Titan A.E. of any dramatic force.
