    This multigenre parody is excruciatingly slow and unamusing; a go-go dancer in the opening and closing credits does as much in a few minutes to shake up our perspective on a bygone aesthetic as the entire narrative in between.

    Wolfgang Petersen and writer Andrew Marlowe, apparently afraid to really make fun of any American icons, challenge us to take the story straight no matter what, but the only thing this ponderous movie has going for it is its unintentional humor.

    Awful light drama.

    The elaborate climax set in a Paris bakery is the least boring part of this trained-animal movie.
    • 12 Metascore

    The grasping novelty of the visuals doesn't rival the uncharismatic leads or the hopelessly, unironically banal plot.

    This asthma-inducing adventure set on K2 starts out seeming as if its corny storytelling and phony-looking settings were designed to show that it's as much about genre-movie conventions as anything else.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Ludicrous revenge thriller.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Schmaltzy comedy.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Seems like a miscalculation on multiple levels.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Failed romantic comedy.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Until the diverting special effects take center stage, this story, about an alien intelligence that builds an army out of flesh and metal, pathetically exploits genre conventions without generating self-reference, camp, or thrills.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    This mildly moody SF thriller belabors standard dramatic conceits involving jealousy and sexual betrayal.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    The characters seem both reduced and idealized, and the plot has turns a dispassionate dramatist would avoid.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Writer-director Peter Greenaway never uses narrative lightly...references to the act of filmmaking exhaust their impact pretty quickly.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Its ponderous explanations about why there are vampires in Arizona in the new millennium (blah, blah, blah).
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    The story is painfully slow.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    A promotional tool that establishes its superfluousness simply by existing, this clumsy, smirking movie has a bitter soul.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Not particularly sensitive or funny comedy-drama.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Ill conceived or badly handled.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Isn't absurd enough to be funny.

    Jamal (Martin Lawrence), starts trying to make the best of a bad situation, which becomes our job too.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Excruciatingly earnest yet convictionless movie.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Ugly Americans in Paris have run-ins with the native werewolf culture in this horror-for-laughs story, in which the characters' stupidity and the deadpan acting are out of sync--instead of being campy or clever, the plot and performances are just unconvincing.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Poorly paced action comedy.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Stylish but insubstantial thriller .
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    The labored storytelling in this movie about displaced ambition diminishes the impact of the powerful performances.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    The filmmakers uphold an unfortunate tradition in movies based on TV shows by busily adding superfluous plot elements.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    The writers must have racked their brains for the formula: two parts other movies to one part childhood revenge fantasies
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Lisa Alspector
    Nearly toothless 1998 existential drama.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Lisa Alspector
    Adam Sandler displays no virtuosity and stirs no pathos in this special-effects comedy.
