    Needing the gristle of its title, the film should have been angrier.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    An unsteady mixture of treacle and dark comedy that never feels as "dark" as it pretends. Though well-intentioned, it's not terribly compelling.
    • 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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    It's an odd, overly long picture, filled with too many pauses but dotted with just enough funky band sequences to keep you interested.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    Gives just enough to forgive any of its initial flaws and eventually grows on you.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    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.

    Basic essentially is a fun movie, surprise ending and all. To take it too seriously is to miss the point. Travolta is charming, his performance recapturing the old charisma.

    A movie that drags.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Kim Morgan
    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.
    • 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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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.

    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Understated fun, but not much more.
    • 51 Metascore

    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.

    • 50 Kim Morgan
    It's merely a by-the-numbers coming-of-age film
    • 49 Metascore

    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.
    • 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.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    An unfortunate example of a small picture that feels small.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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?
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Hollow, frequently boring picture.
    • 49 Metascore

    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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    A sweet, loopy British comedy filled with good actors and funny moments.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Scattered and silly. If it evokes any strong feelings from you, it will probably be hunger -- the food all looks so good.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    Short on both life and laughs.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    So action-packed from start to finish that the final result is grating rather than thrilling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    The film moves too slowly and dispassionately to resonate as it should.
