    The film is only 91 minutes long, but it seemed to stretch out for days.

    A lobotomized attempt to make a no-budget John Waters movie, Men Cry Bullets is a painful reminder of just how bad indie cinema can be - especially when it plays with gender roles. It's desperately unfunny and dreadfully acted, written and directed.

    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A smarmy, smirky but ultimately boring film.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Occasionally amusing, extremely gross, but mostly tedious.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A surprisingly nasty fable about a particularly silly, very English brand of animal-rights extremism.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    An example of lazy, dumb and couldn't-care-less hack movie making.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Even the lovemaking scenes between two of Hollywood's most attractive stars -- often shot from above, like Cinemax soft porn -- are so unerotic, they make your skin crawl.

    Isn't really a movie: It's a grab bag of mobster clichés lifted without finesse from "A Bronx Tale," "GoodFellas" and at least a score of lesser Mafia flicks.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    This oddly scrambled new version eventually falls apart so badly you feel embarrassed for the people who made it.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    It's all so insincere, you can almost imagine the filmmakers rubbing their hands together at the prospect of ripping off the public.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    The screenplay is packed with so many hilariously bad lines (it's hard to believe that writer-director Helgeland won an Oscar for co-writing "L.A. Confidential") that the movie would be perfect material for a resurrected version of the TV spoof "Mystery Science Theater."

    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    As lifeless and unfunny as a corpse on a slab.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A pathetically inane and unimaginative cross between "XXX" and "Vertical Limit," it could only harm the careers of everyone involved in its making - including top British stage actors Rufus Sewell and Rupert Graves.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    This crude, deeply dishonest documentary does no such thing. David Russell's fictional "Three Kings" does a much better job.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    The characters are tired stereotypes, the sentimentality nauseating and the situation comedy way below the standards of the very worst WB or UPN shows.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Unfortunately, Scorpion King has none of the qualities -- epic sweep, relative originality and heartfelt bloodthirstiness -- that made "Conan" so trashily entertaining.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Mostly ludicrous, but occasionally effective.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Looks and feels like a bad imitation of "Trainspotting" without any of that film's wit or charm.
    • 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.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A deep disappointment to fans of sci-fi and the once great John Carpenter.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    During an endless, maudlin last act, it becomes more and more difficult not to laugh -- or barf -- as the protagonists tearfully come to terms with their issues.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    The result is inept, tedious kitsch that even at its best feels like John Waters minus the joie de vivre.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Relentlessly stupid.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    An example of Hollywood schlock from the team of Joel Schumacher (director) and Jerry Bruckheimer (producer) that lacks the faintest trace of imagination or genuine feeling.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    You have to sit through 90 minutes that feel like three hours.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    The "Jurassic Park" movie franchise does not evolve. Quite the opposite: It degenerates at great speed.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Embarrassingly bad - the kind of slapdash exercise that gives even Hollywood formula a bad name, while doing little justice to the sport.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    Resembles a period version of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" - played dead straight.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    A criminally slow, all-but-laughless blaxploitation comedy.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Jonathan Foreman
    It's a film that reeks of stupidity and cynicism, one that makes you feel soiled just to have sat through it.
