    It's an odd, overly long picture, filled with too many pauses but dotted with just enough funky band sequences to keep you interested.

    It's a stylish work, seeping with brilliant animation and potentially interesting characters that didn't need so much time to establish themselves. It's worthwhile, but it's a good thing there's a television show to refer to.

    Gives just enough to forgive any of its initial flaws and eventually grows on you.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    While breezy and fun, the film is also flimsy and sloppy in style and content.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    Though filled with charm and led by three likable characters, the picture spreads its plot points and whimsy so thinly that we can never just relax.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    Manages to feel both obvious and oblique: You feel the need to watch it twice but wonder if you would actually be up for it. It moves like a breezy techno-thriller but tangles itself with duplicities and metaphors. You get it, and then you don't get it, and then you wonder if you even care.

    Does at least come bearing two gifts: the rolling beauty of Tuscany and the understated elegance of actress Diane Lane. The rest of the film is fit fodder for the Oxygen Network.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    Sometimes complicated, sometimes incredibly simple, the film explicates or fawns over the human condition with occasional charm and poignancy but too often it's just cloying.

    Judging by the beautiful photography of Salvatore Totino, Howard knows what a Western should look like. But the thrills suggested by the trailers, in which the picture is presented almost like a frightening supernatural horror story, are nowhere to be seen.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    Amusing, funny (intentionally and unintentionally -- it's dubbed, so many lines come out ludicrous) and, by the ending, exciting.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Poor special effects, a silly looking werewolf and clunky comic writing help to spoil what should have been a fun B-movie.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Pablo Berger's subtle satire Torremolinos 73 is almost there. Almost.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    If not for the race sequences and the intriguing presence of Caviezel, who made this film before "The Passion of the Christ" and who one hopes will take on even more roles befitting his peculiar sad-eyed charisma, the film would amount to a well-intentioned snooze.

    Peter Segal's film, a predictable, choppy affair at best, boasts an understated, likable performance by Sandler, but here we never feel, as we did with the original, invested in the outcome of the final game, or convinced of the redeemability of the movie's sordid protagonist.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    The film is weighed down by the decision of director David Atkins to throw too much into the mix. The result is a serious problem of consistency.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Hollow, frequently boring picture.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    The film moves too slowly and dispassionately to resonate as it should.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    A sweet, loopy British comedy filled with good actors and funny moments.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Understated fun, but not much more.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Though the acting in "Sidewalks" is uniformly fine, particularly among the female cast, it's hard to glimpse any meaningful vision, sly insights or cinematic flair.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    It's merely a by-the-numbers coming-of-age film
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    An unfortunate example of a small picture that feels small.

    Blue Crush, which might appear exciting in an "Endless Summer"/"Where the Boys Are" kind of way, actually is really boring.

    You can't just rework a beloved Christmas classic, set it in reverse and expect it to run smoothly.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Short on both life and laughs.
    • 51 Metascore

    Scattered and silly. If it evokes any strong feelings from you, it will probably be hunger -- the food all looks so good.

    Gallo makes some fatal mistakes in his direction. As Griffin talks, he adds sound effects that are distracting and annoying. It's actually an insult to the comic -- as if his jokes aren't clever enough on their own.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    So what is the picture saying? With its uneven tone, flat direction (on bad-looking digital video) and varied performances, very little.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Works as pure escapist entertainment, but it's on the cusp of being smarter -- making it all the more frustrating.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Though not terrible, and blessed with some nice performances, this Irish-eyes-are-smiling-despite-the-rain-and-nasty-nuns story is Hallmark Hall of Fame material.
