    There's nothing here for the viewer to do, no kinks to work out, no double-crossings to anticipate, not even a half-hearted flail at figuring out how Danny ticks.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    There is much to recommend this earnest and enraged film.

    Perhaps Sucsy was overwhelmed by his immersion in such colorful and outré material; he's chosen for his followup, the I Can't Believe It's Not Nicholas Sparks weepie The Vow, the cinematic equivalent of a lie-down.

    Patinkin and King’s characters’ wrangling with spirituality is sincere, and specific. Everything else in this everything-and-the-kitchen-sink film feels like too many ideas stored up over an especially long winter.

    Once spoiled by the gossamer disquietude of Kim Jee-woon's original Tale, it's difficult to view this Americanized version in anything but the blandest light.

    After two hours of Vera's pretty but wet-blanket direction, it's too late to ignite any fireworks, even in the hands of such capable actors.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    The film's best stretch, wherein each American gal is romanced by an international lover, faintly recalling the Fifties' sudser "Three Coins in the Fountain."
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    Two hours pass painlessly enough, thanks to the affability of its trio of leads, Hathaway, Andrews, and Elizondo.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    Big, dumb, and fun.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    A bright idea, disappointingly dulled in the execution.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    Product placement aside, there’s an admirable, even sweet, message about fellowship and misfit pride shot through the whole script, and Vaughn is rather touching as a kind of cuddly uncle figure to his fellow interns.

    For such a deft wit, Jane Austen sure has inspired some nitwitted entertainments. Actually, the Austen influence here is negligible.

    It's all pretty goofy, which I assume is the point, but it's also pretty dull.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    Hopelessly old-fashioned then, but not the aggressively bad picture you might have anticipated.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    Instantly forgettable but good-natured all the same.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    It’s an impossible standard, maybe, but in 42 minutes, TV’s "Friday Night Lights" delivered all-star-level emotional complexity and action. When the Game Stands Tall is strictly JV squad.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    It's a Big Idea movie that comes out only half-baked.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    Not a man, but the romanticizing of him. A lot of jive-shit.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    A decent enough spot of silliness.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Kimberley Jones
    Instantly forgettable but intermittently funny movie.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    The opening montage is a jazzy, grabby thing, artfully layering the kids’ auditions to mimic the frenzied pace of the day. But that freneticism never really goes away, nor does the staccato timing.
    • 39 Metascore

    It’s clear this director sees carnage as nothing more than an opportunity for music-video production values.

    For a comedy, The Sitter is frightfully spare on full-bodied laughs.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    Tiny and well-intentioned but dramatically inert and sham-kooky, Girl Most Likely is for Kristen Wiig completists only, and even they may squirm at spending a whole movie waiting for her character to pull her head out of her ass.

    For the first 30 minutes I couldn't shake the feeling that I was watching a really promising pilot for network TV.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    A film that is long on atmosphere, but short on smarts: Plot points are easily unraveled 20 minutes in advance (no fun sleuthing for the audience here), the ending is an unsatisfying pastiche off too many horror tropes, and it would take a week to plug all of Gothika’s gaps in logic.

    Most devastating to the film’s effectiveness is its inability to convey that one essential to the story of Amelia Earhart: the tangible pleasures of flying.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Kimberley Jones
    There's something good-natured, even sweet about this well-meaning affair.
    • 37 Metascore

    Imagine "Little Miss Sunshine's" dark materials (and superior craftsmanship) diluted with a Hannah Montana-like sunny silliness – which is to say: sometimes funny, often broad-stroked, ever sweet, and landing shy of its potential.
    • 37 Metascore

    The richly hued CG animation is quite nice – a mix of hyperdetailed character work and painterly cityscapes and pastorals – and the script putters along with small but regular amusements.
