    Only Elaine May shines, in a weird and wonderful turn. Her loopy character has such a struck-by-lightning demeanor that she's always delightfully off in her own comic orbit even in the tritest of scenes.

    The movie is as schmaltzy as I'd feared, and yet De Salvo does elicit some nice performances from her ensemble cast.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 52 Kevin Maynard
    Eventually succumbs to fatal overlength.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 52 Kevin Maynard
    At best a vaguely Semitic episode of "The Wonder Years."
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    The script is pure Disney formula. Dinosaur offers next to nothing in the way of variation.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    There's no spirit of adventure to separate this one from the pack.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Despite the film's impressively epic look and an interesting cast of young and old actors, it ringingly sounds the same dour note over and over again.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Wholly predictable and implausible plotting, thin characterizations, and stilted dialogue.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Shows its roots early on: Mixing the high camp of "Strictly Ballroom" with Monty's gritty milieu, the film comes off as little more than a contrived composite, despite the best efforts of pros Rickman, Richardson, and Griffiths.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Only really comes to exuberant life during the musical numbers.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    But jaw-dropping trailer aside, there isn't much movie here.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    At their trenchant, tuneful best, the Barenaked Ladies take flip comic spins on serious subjects (alcoholism, heartbreak). But offstage, they have nothing of substance to reveal.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    It plays out like an endless series of scenes we've seen before.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Deserves to be applauded for not casting Freddie Prinze Jr., but this sloppy, somnolent, strung-together flick pales when compared to such other teenage riffs on classic literature as "Clueless" and "10 Things I Hate About You."
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Startlingly shallow even for a summer movie.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    A barrage of dangling plot strands, inconsistent characterizations, and suspense-free shootouts.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    The movie's still thinner than a supermodel's waist. It's not just that the results are less than heavenly; it's that we don't know what the hell they are.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Starts as light, fluffy fun but becomes so blithely preposterous that it ceases to exist.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    A sleek rip-off of "The Birds" that is fast, furious, and watchable, but lacking in the two elements most essential to a silly screamfest like this: scares and laughs.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin Maynard
    Every frame of Scott's film is gorgeously lurid and baroque, but it just hangs there like bad art, even during the gore-spilling, Grand Guignol climax.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 49 Kevin Maynard
    Li's light touch and explosive fighting skills deserve a better vehicle than this overcooked pot of New Jack suey.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 49 Kevin Maynard
    It's so plot heavy it never finds its nimble comic rhythm.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 49 Kevin Maynard
    Never the heart-wrenching emotional experience it seems intended to be.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 49 Kevin Maynard
    Despite being full of Oscar-winning talent, this is still just a better-dressed, drawn-out episode of "Touched by an Angel."
    • 60 Metascore
    • 48 Kevin Maynard
    Sentenced its audience to a maudlin death.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 45 Kevin Maynard
    Never better than middling, despite its best intentions.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 45 Kevin Maynard
    Captures the embarrassment of foreplay, but it could use a few lessons in the art of seduction
    • 45 Metascore
    • 43 Kevin Maynard
    "Footloose" meets "The Full Monty" in Bootmen, a cliché-ridden tap dance drama.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    For all its pretense of critiquing our tabloid culture, it amounts to much ado about nothing.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    Like its accordion-filled score, it's nothing but a golden moldie.
