    All guts, no glory and, worse, bad story.

    Feels more TV movie-of-the-week than Oscar contender.

    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.

    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.

    Plot, comedy and characterization? It's absolutely anemic.

    One of the funniest things in Scary Movie 3 is Pamela Anderson. She makes us laugh. And not just at her (though she's game to poke fun at her image) but with her.

    The clothes are worth it; nothing else is.

    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.

    Ledes shows promise, but truly, this would have been better left to Todd Haynes.

    It all makes you realize the importance of the guy who should have played Malkovich's role -- Christopher Walken. He makes films like this bearable.

    One of the most wearisome "high adrenaline" movies to come along in a while.

    You can't help but think how much better this film would be had Woody Allen directed it...How much more acerbic fun would it be to see Judy Davis playing stenographer to a neurotic, writer's-blocked Woody?

    Has a few pleasing stylistic flourishes and a potentially Hitchcockian plot, but the writing and rhythm are so off that when the final "shocker" arrives, we have seen it coming or have abandoned caring.

    There are movies that are made for the big screen, and movies that are made for the small screen; Passionada is the latter type.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 33 Kim Morgan
    Taking the film as a thriller, it's neither exciting nor scary, hampered by a middle that plays much too long.

    Groove seems to be less about what it is chronicling than what its attempting to decipher.

    The script is inane, and though Ferri has some funny moments, the acting is annoying or hopelessly bland.

    For those who've seen the original, no surprises will be unearthed other than an altered story (not for the better) and more gore.

    A disappointing venture. If only it had been more clever, perhaps darker.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 33 Kim Morgan
    Has a curious train-wreck quality to it that keeps you watching and thinking. (Even if you are thinking things like, Why were these lines ever written? When you hear the "turkey" line, your jaw will drop.)
    • 37 Metascore
    • 33 Kim Morgan
    A film with almost zero redeeming value.

    Working with a weak script and too lightweight for its freakier moments with Green, the picture never gels. Green's the star, but he really should be in a movie much weirder than this one, a film that can accommodate his humor.

    So often out of control that it becomes absurd and exasperating.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 30 Kim Morgan
    A tiresome, hammy and ultimately annoying portrait of the artist as a young drunk.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Kim Morgan
    So tedious that the experience results in nearly two hours of squirming and cringing.

    This little serio-comedy contains absolutely nothing that warrants big-screen release. It's lit like TV, acted like TV and staged like TV.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Kim Morgan
    An annoying, unclever, unlikable movie.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Kim Morgan
    A lazy, trite comedy that's made by people who don't care either.

    Just pass on K-PAX.

    Maybe if the story weren't so ludicrous we'd care. Or maybe if the film just went overboard with its ludicrousness, we'd be entertained, but Don't Say a Word is merely boring.
