    On the wildly uneven rollercoaster that is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, the lows far outweigh the highs.

    The real problem is that there isn't enough whimsy in the world to save this unengaging story.

    Ultimately, any sass, sentiment and personality are obliterated in the noisy chaos of the climax, which is a grayish brown blur of flying spaceship parts, whirling turtle shells and shouts of "the beacon!" It's more cacophonous than cinematic, and loses the quirky charm of the cartoon in the avalanche of computer-generated violence.

    What could have been a taut and tense thriller is ankled by the inert characters, clunky screenplay and nonexistent back story.

    What really hampers Miles to Go is its aimless wandering. Many things could be forgiven with some growth or movement in the journey, but ultimately, this one just ends up running in circles.

    The climax is overwrought and cheesy, which doesn't match with the quiet dignity of the Inuit man. He carries a profound and sage warning, but Chloe and Theo just isn't the right dramatic package.

    Despite what the film might want us to believe, if he walks, talks and acts like a selfish, predatory creep, he is, and there's just no sympathizing with him.

    Writer-director Luke Sabis brings some interesting ideas to the well-known genre, exploring the nuances of abuse, spirituality and redemption. Unfortunately, the low-budget execution shows on screen, with a dim and dismal look, and the energy is decidedly lethargic.

    It's a shame that what could have been an intriguing situational thriller devolves into a hateful, arduous drag

    The story on screen comes off as a naive interpretation of the homeless experience as imagined from a place of great privilege.

    Bright spots are found in the supporting cast.... They just are not enough to pull "Dirty Grandpa" out of its ill-conceived and poorly executed gutter.

    The tone is wildly inconsistent, particularly with plucky, lighthearted music accompaniment scoring what is essentially a teen crime spree.
    • 22 Metascore

    The film's musings on artists and muses tries to be deep but gets bogged down in tiresome booze-soaked mind games.

    The Dog Wedding is rather a minor effort, and the amateurish acting of the supporting cast and stilted energy are hard to forgive.

    • 30 Katie Walsh
    No Letting Go has all the subtlety of an after-school special, and the performances feel like they're from a public service announcement about mental illness.
    • 52 Metascore

    It feels at once overwritten and thematically thin, coasting on a cutesy concept before descending into relentless, and therefore meaningless, violence.

    Unfortunately, The Syndrome fails to adequately elucidate the many nuances of this complicated subject.
    • 29 Metascore

    From a storytelling perspective, the obsession with guns in a movie aimed at children is troubling, in poor taste and is lazy writing to boot.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Katie Walsh
    The film manages to be exceedingly dull, perhaps because it's too enamored of its own design, concept and location to bother with a captivating story.

    While its heart is in the right place, Welcome to Happiness is too fixated on its twee peccadilloes to truly succeed.
    • tbd Metascore

    Despite its best efforts to be thought-provoking, the film is dramatically inert, slow and its revelations aren’t all that politically illuminating, relying on coincidence and worn tropes to obfuscate its lack of ingenuity.

    No amount of star power can save the script by Brad Desche.
    • 71 Metascore

    It’s a film that dares you to give it a bad review, simply so it can turn around and call you a bully who picks on the people who try. It invites you to giggle at Florence’s horrible singing and then promptly scolds you for laughing, creating a contradiction that goes unreconciled.

    The cryptic and mysterious story is crammed with overwrought issues — cancer, divorce, fraud, war — which the characters then over-explain.

    There’s enough weirdness for Yoga Hosers to possibly generate some stoner cult appeal, but it’s shoddily slapped together, with a clearly first-draft script, terrible editing (by Smith the elder) and continuity errors.

    • 30 Katie Walsh
    The film is more mood and aesthetic than anything else, and it nails the fictionalized, aspirational high school look — down to the actors who appear to be in their mid-to-late 20s playing 18-year-olds.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Katie Walsh
    The ambitious but unwieldy screenplay suffers from a lack of cohesion and loses control of the nonlinear memories and fantasies of seven people, with some of the characters’ motivations also lost in the shuffle.

    • 30 Katie Walsh
    The obvious exposition, tortured dialogue and shoddy special effects just make you wish you were watching something else.

    Jack’s Apocalypse is unable to convey any realistic stakes or authenticity in its story line.
    • 38 Metascore

    It's clear that Roth was trying to say something about the brave new world of social media-enabled social justice, and public shame as a tool for change, but the message is garbled. That it comes wrapped in a horror package that just isn't truly scary or suspenseful is the real shame though.
