    With a character this dull--so dull that we're told over and over how smart and special she is--the resulting glut of date-ad losers seems like just deserts.

    Unfortunately "My Left Foot's" Jim Sheridan, that reliable purveyor of Irish struggle-porn, anchors us in tedious exposition.

    The Boys of Baraka's heart may be in the right place, but its portrait of poor Baltimore kids selected to attend boarding school in Kenya is rife with suspect perspectives.

    Another in a line of Dogme half-wits whose madness is posited as a state of tortured grace, the young wife in Kira's Reason is a woman well past the verge.

    Bury this in the time capsule: a memento of the Clean South, 2003.

    Really, any wit at all would have helped balance the playful but crass butt-seeking money shots.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Laura Sinagra
    A movie that's two-thirds flashback (and could have been called "Ex, Ex, Ex, Why?").
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Laura Sinagra
    Nothing plot-wise is worth e-mailing home about. But director John Polson's surging pace, double-flip edits, nu-metal bash-ins, and copious jump-fucks make a sure-handed tempest in this teacup.

    Cube is still adorable, but the potentially poppin' battle between the shop and big-box competitor Nappy Cuts gets obscured by sloppy chronology and flat, cartoonish politicos.

    As a gloves-off Erin Brockovich, Ryan never makes it into the ring.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Laura Sinagra
    The film outs itself as a shallow indie "Rambo."
    • 33 Metascore

    The God-squad answer to Todd Graff's "Camp."

    Disney misfire.
    • 33 Metascore

    When this flick is honest about its pimping, it has that Rat Pack charm. But attempts at real ruggish posturing--like that de rigueur sideways-gatted, full-body-exposure firing stance--are just plain laughable.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Laura Sinagra
    Less "Freaky Friday" than just plain freaky.
    • 29 Metascore

    Without a scorcher like Pam Grier, the sub-NYPD Blue dialogue and acting dilute what could have been a shrieking wake-up call about for-profit prisons.

    Too bad the central bedfellowship never gels, and Franc. Reyes's script turns a dissection of ambition into "Sleeping With the Enemy"-style nonsense.

    If hopeless literalist Kasdan could have decided on a tone this could have been a gynophobe's "Independence Day."
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Laura Sinagra
    A cockeyed shot all the way.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Laura Sinagra
    With no irony and no plot beyond Girls Have Band, Voss reduces Kali and Fauna to earnest Janus faces of Hole's schizo aesthetic.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Laura Sinagra
    Even in the teen-flick "Sweet Valley" of 1987, there were few places outside John Hughes's brain where paying somebody to be your girl didn't look like prostitution. Yet somebody made the Slow-Times-at-Clueless-High stinker Can't Buy Me Love.

    The barf stream of gay jokes, pussy jokes, fat wife jokes, more gay jokes, and walrus penis jokes ends up making you pine for Lucy's gift of forgetting.

    Maybe it's the terrible lighting, but Friend-out-of-water Aniston spends most of this flick looking like she needs Dustin Hoffman to bang on the glass and get her out of this mess.

    • 10 Laura Sinagra
    A convoluted writing exercise gone horribly wrong.

    If Martínez-Lázaro, as he reiterated at the Miami Film Festival earlier this year, wants to expand the U.S. Spanish-language film market, one hopes he'll aim higher than this.

    This charmless nonsense ensues amid clanging film references that make "Jay and Silent Bob's Excellent Adventure" seem understated.

    This isn't one for the time capsule--just bury it.

    The new tunes sound like Buster Poindexter mainlining Sweet 'n Low, and at a critically song-starved moment, John Goodman's Baloo admits, "King Louie? He split!" Before the third defibrillation of "Bare Necessities," you and your kids might too.

    Unlike Reese Wither-your-spoon, stagy Murphy actually does deserve her own "Philadelphia Story," or "Singin' in the Rain." She's obviously a camp genius (see "Clueless," not "8 Mile"), but this dopey script, topped with too-pretty Kutcher's rote 70's Show blowups, ain't it.
