    • 57 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Goes overboard in its presentation of supposed reality.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Lacks the perfect timing, luster and true vitality of its predecessors.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Never maintains the spark necessary to sustain a feature film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    The picture is pinched and predictable. Even with the immensely talented Steve Zahn, an actor who's known to steal scenes and, sometimes, save pictures, the movie is a yawn.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Its cool, glib observations, delivered by good-looking creative people who live like the cast of "Friends" gone cynical, becomes forced and often stupid. The film goes off the track enough to make for an interesting train wreck.

    It's Zahn who truly conveys what Marshall and Barrymore are going for -- laughing through your tears.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Jinxed itself into being nothing but an inane popcorn flick pretending to be edgy.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    A flimsy film that's too clean and corn pone to be anything near rock 'n' roll.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 38 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Not that Chan isn't lovable; he is. But he's making it harder to feel warm and fuzzy about him with films like The Medallion. It's OK to age, but Chan needs to broaden his horizons. He is a trained singer. Where's that musical he's always dreamed of making?
    • 16 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Fails to be resonant and, more important, scary.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    The Young Unknowns flails about, sometimes realistically, but the cumulative effect is "so what?" These characters may be young and unknown, but they feel old and in the way.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Lopez is fine, sometimes quite funny, but she's better playing the take-no-prisoners planner than a goofy, insecure dork.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    It's something we might mildly enjoy on an airplane (well, not anymore) or on a lazy Sunday TV day when nothing else is on, but in theaters, it's a clunker.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    A picture that could have bordered on classy screwball if written wittier, acted sexier and filmed shinier.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 55 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    It's nice that Demme reveres the Hollywood classic, the French cinema and the glamour of his actors. But nice is all The Truth About Charlie is -- a nice mess.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 53 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Filled with too many issues -- along with young motherhood, street gangs, city life, sex, peer pressure, grief and, oh yes, dancing, which is nearly lost in so many poorly written subplots.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    There's nothing worse than a sub-par Woody Allen knockoff.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    All guts, no glory and, worse, bad story.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 71 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    A little movie, fine, but a little movie with little in the way of character composition, cinematic panache or intelligent writing.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Suffers from poor comic timing and defective romantic pacing.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    We're talking mediocre-to-bad. Still, the film has at least two bits that are funnier than anything in many better films and a fair amount of mild amusement in between.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 30 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    In The Tuxedo, ridiculously, Chan's just a suit. A suit walking Jennifer Love Hewitt's breasts around. Chan deserves better.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 54 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Somewhere along the way, Stephen Herek's Rock Star decided to become a dippy, cliche-ridden drama and, worse, an odd indictment of metal music. Joy.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    If the movie wasn't about an actor but instead about an insurance salesman or a plumber who looked like James Gandolfini, it might come off better. But then, who says a plumber would care either?
    • 27 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    It's classic movie manipulation gone amok.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    By a certain point The Heart of Me becomes pointlessly depressing and unlikable without offering insight.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Starts out dark, thrilling and inventive, then, regrettably, becomes sappy, mainstream and mundane.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    The best thing about 2 Fast 2 Furious is Tyrese (terrific in Singleton's "Baby Boy"), whose charisma, looks and charm supply the picture with much-needed spark. It's too bad he's stuck in this spotty video game.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    The film wears out its welcome by the halfway mark, becoming a silly spectacle.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 42 Kim Morgan
    Though there are some funny moments, little in "Red, White and Blonde" is enjoyable.
