    A fascinatingly obtuse puzzle box that manages to be gripping even after it stops making sense.

    • 50 Ken Fox
    The boys' laddish catchphrase -- "Shut up!" -- is particularly irritating, especially since they never do.

    The downside is that many of these characters are hastily sketched and their stories unsatisfactorily developed.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    Clearly, it's not for everyone. Extra points for a great electronic soundtrack, striking widescreen cinematography and an unapologetically freaky attitude.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    The result is a confused mess of mixed signals that substitutes a brutal climax for any kind of satisfactory resolution. Parents should be warned about the frequent gunfire and a grisly death by hanging.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    The film's rather shallow treatment of his art only reinforces the long-held opinion that Hockney is more a brilliant visual stylist than an artist of any great depth.

    • 50 Ken Fox
    Falk is as good as ever and the rest give it their all; you couldn't ask for a better cast, just better material.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    The film basically follows Moore and Slater's book, but without the details that reveal the strange complexity of the Bush-Rove symbiosis.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    Heartfelt but only intermittently interesting documentary.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    Stylized to the point of poetry.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Routine thriller.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    And if you can't figure out who [the bad guy] is the minute he first appears, you've either seen too few movies with mind-numbingly predictable plots or you've seen far too many.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Levinson, who has directed enough films to know better, should recognize a stinker of a script when he smells one: Instead clever laughs he serves up sloppy schtick, dead spots filled with lame ad-libbing and Walken crooning "The Happy Wanderer."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The mystery is terribly plotted and the satirical elements are limited and not very funny.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Nicely shot around New York City, this dodgy mixture of cutesy romance, dark satire and murder mystery uses the same central conceit as Neil LaBute's "Nurse Betty."
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The film is content to relentlessly scream "Boo!" behind the audience's back rather than provide any real thrills.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The story's rhythm is so bogged down in unnecessary characterization that the film can hardly breathe.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    While butching up their hero, Moreton and cowriter Dennis Hensley left out one key ingredient: charisma -- for all his macho swagger, the guy's unbearable.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    However stale the material, Lawrence's delivery remains perfect; his great gift is that he can actually trick you into thinking some of this worn-out, pandering palaver is actually funny.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    This poky and indifferently plotted film isn't much of mystery.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The always charming Deschanel manages to rise above most of the film's logy pretensions, but the usually excellent Clarkson isn't so lucky.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Not even Drew Barrymore's million-dollar smile can save this humiliating comedy.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    A few funny bits float the film for a while -- it's always nice to see Peters onscreen, no matter what she's doing -- but it's really as showcase for Marcus, who also wrote the script.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Long takes do not a masterpiece make, and the suspicion that the whole thing is a lark is only bolstered by Damon and Affleck's inability to contain their giggles.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Good intentions can't compensate for crude technique or lack of insight, but Israeli director Dan Wolman's deserves credit for broaching a serious subject.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's neither romantic nor particularly funny.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's even louder and dumber than the first XXX, but if watching things fall down and go boom in a very big way makes you cheer, you're in luck.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    As contrived and pretentious as its title.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    With all the glossy sex, you'd be forgiven for thinking Zalman King was directing, except that even King knows you don't need such a ludicrously complicated plot to show pretty people having sex. Each character is so burdened with gratuitous back story that it's exhausting trying to separate the grain from the chaff, until you realize none of it matters at all.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Once LL Cool J, easily the film's most magnetic presence, is out of the game, the whole thing falls apart in a hazy, confusing mess.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Lame and inane, but a huge hit in Spain.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Davis not only wrote and directed the film but edited it as well, all of which is no mean feat. Too bad she couldn't have lent some of her own gumption and self-assurance to her pathetic heroine.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Yes, it's really silly, and no, you won't remember a thing about it the second it's over, but adults looking for fast moving, non-violent fun that kids might actually enjoy could do a lot worse.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Purely literary stuff that's always the first to go whenever a book is adapted for the screen. Unfortunately, as this thin and entirely ill-conceived adaptation from director Neil LaBute demonstrates, that stuff happens to be the lifeblood of Byatt's wonderful book.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Tierney's so-serious script lacks any trace of humor, which might actually have made this depressing film feel a bit more real.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    While there's little to be gained from over-critiquing a child's performance, it must be said that director Alejandro Agresti badly miscalculates the appeal of his young star; the fact he not only dominates each scene but provides the film's narration means there's not getting away from young Noya.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    "Alien" redux.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Well intentioned but unfocused, director John Henry Davis's debut feature tries to tackle two serious subjects at once: maintaining one's faith in a universe that's seemingly without meaning, and the ways in which scripture is used to justify anti-gay violence.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Like its seven subjects, it can't see past the immediate demands of addiction, and the film becomes a seemingly endless string of scenes depicting shooting up, nodding out and waiting around for the next fix.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    There's so much less to the film than the novel: Nicholas Meyer's screenplay fails to capture the intricate subtleties of its subject and replaces Roth's moral scope with a moralizing tone.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    You may give up on Ian Iqbal Rashid's feature debut long before things get interesting, courtesy of a distracting conceit that shatters whatever spell the hackneyed premise might cast.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Not since Larry Clark's "Kids" (1995) has the threat of HIV infection been used so gratuitously, driving a narrative that ultimately has nothing to do with the AIDS crisis.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    None of this is funny, the surreal touches are ridiculous and the final fantasy sequence, in which the nameless ghosts of the murdered Wiener family smile on Josef, is simply nauseating.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The kind of film only a mother could really love.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    There's no getting past the shockingly poorly dubbed voice work of the English speaking cast; Meyer's voice is particularly shrill and grating.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Shot through the bars of a barbed-wire topped cage and staged to a pounding soundtrack, the fight is quite a spectacle, but it's ultimately an empty one.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    If your idea of a good time at the movies is watching two grown men go at it with fists and shivs and nasty wilderness booby-traps, then you're in luck.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Demonstrating just how different literature and filmmaking can be, filmmaker-turned-writer-turned filmmaker Dai Sijie botches an adaptation of his own best-selling short novel.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's not nearly as funny as "The Waterboy" and has little of "The Wedding Singer's" goofy charm, but die-hard Adam Sandler fans -- whose numbers are legion -- will find plenty to laugh at.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    A clear, unbiased documentary examining of the UNSCOM debacle would benefit anyone attempting to make sense of the dire situation. This, unfortunately, is not that documentary.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The music is surprisingly good and there's a skateboarding bulldog that you've just gotta see to believe.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    A pastel-pretty and oh-so-dull coming of age tale.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    A cheesy romance tricked up in cheap sanctimony.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    While the film's erotic symbolism is surprisingly obvious -- all those trains and tunnels! -- it's otherwise bafflingly vague.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Unless you grew up in an Italian-American neighborhood like the one featured in this contrived but pleasant enough comedy, you might not know that "chooch" is slang for jackass, a likeable loser who can't help but screw up.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Too bad the film isn't nearly as elastic as the miraculous green goo: It can barely contain all the flubber-induced chaos and still make sense, but the filmmakers don't quit till they've run out of funny things for flubber to do.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The first-act crash is admittedly spectacular and the ending adequately suspenseful, but what comes between is disappointingly routine and completely lacks the kind character complexity that made the original a thrill every step of the way.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Some good lines notwithstanding, this is a real disappointment.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Though the film springs an okay twist at the very end, there's a good chance you won't be awake to see it.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Mimics the kind of comedy that doesn't date particularly well to begin with.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Gordon makes the mistake of preserving Bradfield's highly idiosyncratic dialogue -- dazzling on the page, deadly in any actor's mouths -- and the otherwise talented Lloyd is miscast.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's painfully corny and surprisingly vulgar, but this embarrassing attempt at a father-son heart-warmer just happens to feature two Hollywood legends, and they're both in terrific form.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    With friends like these, the poor guy took what he probably thought was the easy way out.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    What begins as an entertainingly contrived lark soon feels like a poorly plotted muddle.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The good news is that Fishburne also stars, and has recruited a talented group of actors to flesh out the cast; the bad news is that no one seems to have been on hand to help out with the rest of film.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    No amount of style or good acting can disguise the fact that this downbeat Israeli comedy is little more than a sudsy soap-opera with a distinctly unsavory aftertaste.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The film is a gorgeous nocturne of surprisingly little substance, a sleek advert for youthful anomie that never quite equals the sum of its pretensions.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    A sloppy, self-indulgent valentine to the theater, delivered with all the grace of a letter-bomb.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    There are two stunning battle sequences, and that rose-tinted bloodbath is a stroke of the eccentric genius for which Stone is famous.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Gutierrez keeps some of Leonard's tart dialogue, but not enough to hide the fact that the story has no momentum -- those gratuitous shots of pro-sufers shooting curls don't compensate -- and there's zero chemistry between the whiny Wilson and Foster, who has yet to make the transition from model to actress.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    For all its sensitivity, the film abounds with movie cliches about the developmentally challenged.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    If Jean-Luc Godard at his most Maoist had felt compelled to make adult movies, he might have cooked up something like pop-art punk-porn auteur Bruce LaBruce's slab of revolutionary raunch.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The film looks great and makes sophisticated use of digital effects.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Flashy, "MATRIX"-style action sequences trump ideas; it's hard not to feel you've just watched a feature-length video game with some really heavy back story.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Set mostly over the course of a single evening, the film is lugubriously paced and filled with improbable turns of events.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    In the end it's simply another Chucky movie -- whether that's a recommendation or a warning is entirely up to you.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Not even the high-caliber talents of Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can save this stagy, ridiculously over-baked psychological thriller.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The movie exists only as a showcase for the animation technology known as hyperReal, a photo-realistic simulation of space, figure and movement that hopes to one day erase the line between animation and live action once and for all.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Neither the appealing cast nor the bouncing, ska-inflected soundtrack can keep the party going.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Director Scott Kalvert returns to wring every last cliché out 1950s juvenile delinquent movies, without adding anything particularly fresh to the formula.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The film only gains its footing in the final half hour, when Griffin and Solvang interview a healer who regularly performs female circumcisions and, finally, two people who actually have AIDS.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Appears to be a complete about-face for Kitano, and yet it's unmistakably his, both stylistically (the film is gorgeous to look at) and thematically.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The year's most eagerly anticipated green-eyed monster finally rears its ugly head, not with his trademark radioactive roar, but a deafening yawn.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    That the film seems willing to erect a simple religious parable on such a moral morass is bewildering. That it should do so without accurately depicting the nightmare of Hitler's Europe is unconscionable.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The real-life Modigliani did indeed live a short, tragic life, but this factually inaccurate, plodding film makes it feel twice as long.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's basically a one-joke comedy that spins out of control once the joke's over, but the cast is likable, the women smart, and one can't argue with the important safe-sex message.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's hard to care even just a little when you have no idea what's at stake or why, be it Heaven or Hell.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    This is a rare road picture that leaves us knowing less about our traveling companions than we did when the journey started; Dahan and screenwriter Agnes Fustier-Dahan reduce their characters to pasteboard symbols, colored by unexplained quirks.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Surprisingly humor-free. Worse, with the exception of Cornwell's brilliant Bowie, the impersonations aren't particularly good, and can be found in any two-bit comedian's repertoire.
    • 59 Metascore

    Cruz's willingness to allow her appearance to be so degraded for cinema's sake doesn't really help.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    If you pitch your expectations at an all time low, you could do worse than this oddly cheerful -- but not particularly funny -- body-switching farce.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    In light of the recent plight of real New York City-based filmmaker Micah Garen, who was kidnapped and nearly executed while attempting to make a genuine documentary in Iraq, the whole endeavor seems simply foolish.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The film has all the pregnant pauses, exaggerated reaction shots and melodramatic scoring of an overripe telenovela, but, unlike a good soap opera, the sisters' separate story lines are clumsily balanced.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's not a total shock when this gay romantic comedy suddenly veers into to heavy S&M, non-consensual sex and suicide.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Neither very dark nor particularly funny.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's just plain lurid when it isn't downright silly, and that "drunk cam," a blurred, cockeyed lens through which Sonny's soused point-of-view is shown, is just a terrible idea.

    • 40 Ken Fox
    A startling about-face for Australian director Alex Proyas, and an unwelcome one as well.
    • 63 Metascore

    The best parts of the film come when he (Doillon) just lets the camera roll and lets the kids be kids.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Energetic and ambitious, and its likeable cast marks a welcome return of non-white faces to the center of a gay-themed film.
    • 32 Metascore

    Marred by lack of a clear strategy and an over-reliance on audio-visual trickery.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    All of this of course would be forgivable if it all added up to a scary movie or made even a lick of sense, but Balaguero manages to disappoint on all possible fronts.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    An uncomfortable go at romantic comedy that belabors the same mistaken-for-gay premise as"In & Out," but without much of that film's charm.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It may be a simple matter of cultural dissonance, or maybe just a bad translation, but it's hard to see why this obnoxious romantic comedy about a lifetime-long relationship between two mischievous adults locked in an ongoing game of "Dares" was such a huge hit in its native France.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The result is so overloaded with extra characters, tangled story lines, dance numbers, fantasies and flashbacks that the once-simple plot feels puffed-up and irritatingly self-important.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    It's all pretty tasteless, but surprisingly chaste and not very funny.
    • 35 Metascore

    As if to prove that light romantic comedy can be just as difficult to stage as Shakespeare, Kenneth Branagh fails at both, simultaneously.

    In the long, hit-and-miss career of writer-director Alan Rudolph, this misbegotten comedy falls squarely into the miss bin.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The homoerotic twists and gender-shifting turns are fun, but they can't hide the fact that the film is little more than a tedious shaggy-dog story with oblique mythological references.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Steers clear of historical accuracy. Herzog is obviously looking for a moral to his fable, but the notion that a strong, unified showing among Germany and Eastern European Jews might have changed 20th-Century history is undermined by Ahola's inadequate performance.

    Perleman has little control over his characters; they simply go to pieces in the most ludicrous ways. He has even less control over Kingsley, who soon slips into full-blown Yul Brynner mode.
    • 68 Metascore

    The shame of it all is that Kane somehow managed to assemble an extraordinary cast, whose fine performances can't surmount the tedium of his script.
    • 32 Metascore

    Sticky sweet sentimentality, clumsy plotting and a rosily myopic view of life in the WWII-era Mississippi Delta undermine this adaptation of an unpublished novel by David Armstrong.

    • 40 Ken Fox
    It can make for entertainingly silly viewing, but it should come as no surprise that the film's plea for tolerance and unexpectedly tragic ending -- an unfortunate throwback to the Dark Ages of gays in films -- rings equally hollow.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The play for the heartstrings is so cold and calculated that the movie's sentimentality feels as synthetic as its hero, and the philosophy is simpleminded and lazy.

    There are no two ways about it: A chubby-cheeked dummy doing stuff it shouldn't be doing is spooky stuff. But Wan isn't on such sure footing with his actors -- Wahlberg is stilted as the tough-guy cop, and Kwanten is blandly uninteresting.

    Lawrence is a comedian with talent who rarely uses it for anything worthwhile, and here he makes a halfhearted, paycheck-collecting effort that's actually in perfect keeping with the rest of the movie's tired, recycled tone.

    • 38 Ken Fox
    In what can only be described as a throwback to the awkward "gay" farces of the 1970s and '80s -- think "The Ritz" and "Partners -- this painfully uncomfortable buddy comedy trips all over itself to say something positive while still managing to offend. Worse still, it's just not funny.

    Forgetting that French New Wave directors often turned to Hollywood for inspiration, cinema snobs will doubtless be outraged that Hollywood would dare remake such a beloved Rohmer masterpiece, when in fact, tone aside, "Chloe In The Afternoon" isn't all that different from "The Seven Year Itch."

    Odd, quasi-mystical movie that’s too silly for adults to take seriously and frankly too weird for kids.

    We already knew Hudson and McConaughey weren't exactly Gable and Lombard from their first romantic pairing in "How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days," but director Andy Tennant's complete lack of inventiveness comes as a surprise.

    This terrible sequel to a bad movie was directed by Fred Savage, the now-grown star of "The Wonder Years," though there's no evidence of any behind-the-scenes adult supervision.

    There's a fine line between subversively transgressive and just plain gross, and this coming-of-age-movies parody from Todd Stephens, who wrote and directed the charming and underrated "Gypsy 83," crashes right over it.

    Like everything else about this insulting romantic comedy, the Jessica Alba/Dane Cook love match is degraded by vile jokes, a boorish attitude toward women and a smutty tackiness not seen since those stupid nudie-cuties of the 1960s.

    Rather than remake the entire original movie, Simon West and screenwriter Jake Wade Wall have taken only that now-classic first act and padded it out into a dull, filler-filled feature that's remarkably void of any new ideas.

    Sitting through this charmless romantic comedy is like going to a restaurant and being seated next to a drunken couple who argue throughout dinner: It's messy, embarrassing and absolutely none of your business, but there's no escape.

    What's most offensive isn't the waste of a good cast, but the film's denial of sincere grief and mourning in favor of bogus spiritualism. Only devotees of Ouija boards and TV's "Crossing Over" will find anything of merit here.

    The screenplay just isn't funny: Most jokes fall flat and just lie there in a pool of their own sick. And while Zwigoff's deadpan pacing was perfect for the wry, sophisticated humor of "Ghost World," here it's a comedy killer; that extra beat after each new outrage is just long enough for viewers to realize just how sad and disturbing it all is.
