    Though the picture has a generic quality, it also has an ingenious amount of anything-goes that's amusing and frequently exciting. You'll laugh out loud, you'll hide your eyes -- but you'll roll them. too. Nevertheless, it's a fun, if blood- and sun-soaked, ride.

    You may strain to recall just what happened an hour after you see it, but there are so many worse things to have to remember in life. It's a relief to focus on something so attractively amusing.

    It's a first love story that goes beyond many simplistic notions as to why people fall for one another. If it weren't true, no one would believe it.

    In its own slightly disturbing way, this psychological thriller serves as an absorbing diversion without sapping brain cells -- almost the perfect summer movie for smart people.

    Though there are some funny moments, little in "Red, White and Blonde" is enjoyable.

    Stays engaging, chiefly, through the textured, ambiguous performances of Spacey, Moore and Dench.

    Sometimes funny but mostly stupid film directed by Adam Shankman might have worked had it been made on TV by Norman Lear in the 1970s.

    Quite simply, the "Tomb Raider" series has been flat-out boring, even with the talented and fun Jolie -- who needs to take off those harnesses and get back to real movies. She deserves better.

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

    Maybe if you're younger than 10 you'll be scared or thrilled by this film. Otherwise, be prepared for one of the most unexciting pictures this summer.

    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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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.
    • 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.)
    • 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.

    Plot, comedy and characterization? It's absolutely anemic.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Kim Morgan
    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.

    The script is inane, and though Ferri has some funny moments, the acting is annoying or hopelessly bland.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 67 Kim Morgan
    It's fun, albeit a little messy, under the frequently punchy direction of Peter Berg.
    • 52 Metascore

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

    On face value, The Flower of Evil is pure Chabrol, but it lacks the power he brings to human relations and social classes, where often violent, masochistic themes are explored. But that doesn't mean he's done as an artist.

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

    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.
    • 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.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Has many puff-piece moments to it and barely touches the controversy surrounding Tupac's death or that of rival hip-hop impresario Biggie Smalls. But it's engaging nonetheless.

    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.

    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.
    • 28 Metascore

    Compare it with the book, and it stinks. Look at the film on its own, and it still stinks.
    • 52 Metascore

    Funny, dumb, cruel and sick, Girls Will Be Girls is a relentlessly mean picture that will tickle those tired of sweet comedies whether in drag or plainclothes. In short, "Tootsie" it ain't.
