    Though it's enjoyable, you can't help but feel the squandered situations and talent, flattened by mediocre writing and direction. Scoff if you will, but the gifted Sandler and his audience deserve better.

    But with a potentially fascinating study of ethics, of how cheating rich boys become cheating rich men while humble souls do more good in the world, The Emperor's Club doesn't take the audience anywhere smart.

    Two-thirds of the way through, it falls apart into TV-movie-of-the-week land, even with the rhapsodic Nastassja Kinski in the lead.

    Bullock maintains a luster and comic naturalness that most actresses couldn't pull off in such mediocrity.

    Really, we'd rather just watch a good documentary about the subject. And as the camera flings around, we occasionally forget about what could help the teens and think more about what could help the director: How about a tripod?

    Another Bond film that turns out to be an unspectacular spectacle, at times winking and fun but too often plodding and hackneyed. That said, as usual Brosnan is terrific, walking through dunderhead moments and a tedious plot with grace.

    The story sounds horrifying, but the film takes some unfortunate twists and never presents us with a multifaceted character in Paxton. Paxton just doesn't play the nice-but-nuts role with a modicum of terror.

    A tepid disappointment that contains one mediocre chase scene and a lot of wasted talent.

    Too sugary to be funny or offensive or even offensively funny, though any kind of funny would be welcome here.

    A slight, smartly dressed bit of melodrama that thinks it's gritty when it's really a bit of puff.
    • 58 Metascore

    This is not a movie about actors. It's a movie about racing, chasing, chicks and adrenaline -- just what many theatergoers are dying for in a summer dominated by a sweet ogre and a dumbed-down historical tragedy.

    The film strives to be poetic, but it exposes nothing especially moving or relevant. Rather, the engaging leads wander around like actors lost in an ill-fated exercise in subtext.

    This film might've worked better as a comedy.

    If you've recently watched that great skateboarding documentary "Dogtown and Z-Boys," Grind will play like a soft-pedaled Afterschool Special.

    Jas some nice moments, a great soundtrack and some wonderful works by the dark-even-while-light Ricci.

    Crowe understands what's interesting about Nash: He's not a feel-good figure. It's a pity the same can't be said for Howard.

    A flawed fable but an intriguing one nonetheless. It's "Splash" gone existential. How many films can you name like that?

    On paper, it sounds like the start of a good film. Too bad McKee made such a lackluster thing of it. Though the horror comes from an interesting place, it's frequently forced, negating much of the humor and pathos the film attempts to instill.

    With little cohesion and no respect for the editing process, Old School often feels like someone threw film clips on the floor and strung them together willy-nilly.
    • 48 Metascore

    So action-packed from start to finish that the final result is grating rather than thrilling.

    So strained in its "charm" and "pluck" that you grow weary by minute 15, hoping that the teens whose lives it depicts will stop being so darn peppy or sweetly confused or irritatingly dramatic.

    A slick disappointment -- though there's much unintentional humor to be enjoyed.

    Written and edited by Sayles, "Casa" is certainly the artist's baby, but he crams too much into a relatively brief running time. Worse, though it should be longer, we're not especially unhappy that it isn't, for being around these women gets tedious.

    This film disappointingly feels like a sometimes brilliantly acted, often gorgeously filmed re-enactment of the television show "Unsolved Mysteries."

    Kassovitz can't control the ridiculous script and messy tone. And though it's not exactly hard to watch Berry run around in a hospital robe (Cruz and Berry: That's one good-looking mental ward), it's not particularly profound.

    Watching Rocks shows, we know he's sharper than the average actor. But watching him flail and play funny in movies that aren't as smart as him is simply depressing. Someone give this man a good role. And please, let him do a few more takes -- these scenes can't be his best efforts.

    Though it's debatable whether Sandler is squandered or just supremely annoying here, the film's flaws aren't entirely his fault.

    America's favorite romantic comedian is miscast in Kate & Leopold -- a disappointment with the warm and charming Jackman around.
