    Their splashy gore is more convincing than this incompetent horror-comedy's attempt to mock bourgeois high school dissoluteness without appearing judgmental.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    This movie's story must have been computer generated along with its animation.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    It's almost always night and almost always raining.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    The message must have got lost somewhere in the plot twists of this would-be topical thriller about the power of hearsay on a college campus.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    The majesty of the landscape and the sweetness of a plot strand about the horse learning survival skills from a 12-year-old girl might have been more intriguing without the cloying voice-over.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    This ambiguously pitched comedy--its idea of sexy humor is a cheerleader farting--shoots for camp without bothering with satire.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    By the time the manic camera slows down to reveal the back stories of the characters, everyone's motives are either moot or redundant.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Exploits all the cliches about shrewish women and pussy-whipped men without achieving satire.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Intriguing but poorly executed ideas are the basis of this not entirely unappealing romantic comedy.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Slow, arty thriller.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Viewers have almost two hours to become thoroughly disgusted.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    The end justifies the means as long as everything turns out OK for the not-too-obedient American soldier and everyone else who enjoys Coca-Cola.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Would have proved the point if it weren't so mechanically scripted.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    In this inept thriller...the script is a coloring book, and the director's careful to stay within the lines.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Two generic ideas amount to nothing in this theatrical dark comedy about violence and information overload.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    In nearly every scene of her dangerously underwritten role, Diaz has a mouthful of cliches.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    The story, which is even dumber than it sounds, is told in flashback.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Boring, irksome family movie.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    The movie's repeated attempts to combine seriousness and humor as in a blender give it a dysfunctionally earnest tone.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    The plot is largely a series of excuses for one-liners expertly delivered by Maguire, making all the hatred, maiming, and killing seem like digressions.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Smug, uninsightful light drama.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Conveys little sense of a connection, as if di Florio had made it mainly because she had access to a celebrity.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Ultimately the movie is alluring and respectful--its sadness may be what saves it from becoming sensationalist or trite.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Makes for a tiresome antidrama populated mainly by unambiguously good characters who might as well be invulnerable.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn are too good for this embarrassing remake.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    If misery were inherently interesting, this adaptation starring Emily Watson and Robert Carlyle as a couple plagued by alcoholism and child mortality might be too.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Unlike Michael Jordan, this 45-minute large-format movie demonstrates mostly unrealized potential.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Initially tolerable but increasingly stupid thriller.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    A kind of idealist fantasy that seems almost hamstrung by its plot.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Lisa Alspector
    Contrasting the erotic with the disgusting is usually provocative and can be funny, but not in this underdog comedy.
