    A punishing tragedy that could best be described as the anti-"Shine."
    • 29 Metascore

    Like its accordion-filled score, it's nothing but a golden moldie.

    A watery cocktail of second-rate, Ab Fab-style bitchery and shameless schmaltz.

    Ultimately, Grateful Dawg will only be of real interest to musicology students and diehard Deadheads.

    This one's all labor pains, and, in the end, nothing gets delivered.

    Relevant message aside, there's no good reason to sit through photographer Neal Slavin's directorial debut.

    For all its pretense of critiquing our tabloid culture, it amounts to much ado about nothing.

    That's just not enough to recommend it, though it does have one moment of real justice: The person sentenced to jail has truly bad hair.

    A mockumentary about small-town beauty pageants that's so confidently unfunny it's DOA.

    A big disappointment. It's toe-tappin' tripe aimed squarely at the undiscerning Britney Spears set.

    About Lustig's direction. Badly employing all kinds of tricks like alternating film speed, jump cuts, and various color tints, she ultimately overpowers her actors and does in her own film.

    Oddly, Bully's only moments of power come at the film's end, after the crime takes place.

    The only reason to sit through On the Line is for some entertaining, if fleeting, musical moments.

    The most obvious casualty ends up being Jennifer Jason Leigh, an actress known for her fearless choices, who is literally pissed on for her trouble.

    Reitman has truly lost his gift for comic rhythms, cluttering up the film with running yuks that aren't that funny the first time and certainly don't improve with repetition.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    There's really nothing more to this by-the-numbers, ailment-of-the-week fodder dressed up with a classy cast.

    By the time Rock Star reaches its cop-out, "All About Eve"-ish ending, the only thrashing that should be going on is of the filmmakers, for bungling such a promising premise.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    A matted hairball of a kiddie flick that's alternately maudlin and slapstickishly violent.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    This is nothing more than one more run-of-the-mill, surprise-free, suspense programmer.
    • Mr. Showbiz

    This predictable romantic comedy outing has occasional flickers of ingenuity.

    Game boys and girls will be disappointed by this fast-paced but shockingly dull adaptation.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Kevin Maynard
    Offers nothing but tired "Red Shoe" Diaries-style sexploitation for the art-house crowd.

    All that this really amounts to is a lot of hot-headed, hairy men threatening each other -- whenever they're not dancing on table tops, that is.

    It's dull, two-dimensional, and totally toothless.

    Why waste the price of a movie ticket when you can see wildebeests cavorting for free from the comfort of your own recliner?
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 27 Metascore
    • 39 Kevin Maynard
    Plays out like a raunchy episode of "Felicity."

    Offers little in the way of splendor in the grass.

    A chronic snore. My advice: Roll a fatty and re-rent the first one.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 35 Kevin Maynard
    The narrative disjointedness is not at all relieved by confusing editing, an uncertain tone, and a dragging pace that makes the film a progressively dreary experience.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 35 Kevin Maynard
    Plays like mediocre outtakes from better bell-bottomed fare (Richard Linklater's authentic, seriocomic "Dazed and Confused"; Fox's "That '70s Show") without making any kind of impression of its own.
