    Neither the love nor the loss in this tear-jerking romance contains much drama.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Adam Sandler displays no virtuosity and stirs no pathos in this special-effects comedy.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    A euphemism for the right of anyone to make movies just as awful as those of big studios.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    This programmatic male-bonding comedy doesn't even borrow well.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    For every jab at hypocrisy in law enforcement or in the media's crime coverage...there's a scene's worth of uninflected scatology or misogyny.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    The insultingly trendy post-postmodern tale rationalizes its own product placement by using overkill.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Formula thriller that exploits homosexuality better than murder-mystery clues.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Overlong, neither funny nor scary movie about a big lizard.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Corky never becomes sympathetic, and without this fundamental irony the movie doesn't have a leg to stand on.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    The plot somehow manages to be both hackneyed and convoluted.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    All I saw were unimpressive digital effects; artless, quick-cut abstracted gore; and a last-ditch attempt to evoke a visceral response by heaping the climactic scene with bat shit.

    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Prinze and Stiles regularly talk to the camera, but that doesn't make their characters self-aware.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Misguided attempts at political correctness make this serial-killer movie stupid instead of just dull.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    It makes me sick all over again just describing this--the most affecting scene in a sluggish would-be comedy that reflects the dubious state of the art of fat male comedians exploiting themselves in 1997, the year its star died.

    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    A straight exploitation story.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    This hopelessly redundant action gross-out aspires to a form of hip vacuousness--and may achieve it.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 0 Lisa Alspector
    Horrendous dialogue and horrific directing dominate this thriller.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 0 Lisa Alspector
    Disingenuously naive romantic comedy.
    • 22 Metascore

    This derivative concept movie is tiresomely slick as well as shamefully sloppy, and someone should issue a restraining order requiring writer-director Darren Stein to stay at least 100 yards away from irony.
