    Like its parade of predecessors, this Halloween is a gory slash-fest. It can't escape its past, and it doesn't want to.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Loren King
    The situations and jokes are as predictable and as lowbrow as the endless pratfalls the boys take in their high heels.

    The British intelligence operation at Bletchley Park that cracked the Enigma code is truly the stuff of great drama. But that story doesn't offer Matt LeBlanc in a wig and heels.

    With a plot devoid of suspense and characters without complexity, Rand's iconic line elicits merely a yawn, or a shrug.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Loren King
    There's nothing original about the father-son conflict that forms the core of the film, nor is there enough suspense and drama.
    • 16 Metascore

    The film's crude humor and violence -- cartoonish, but still violent -- should offend parents of younger kids. Yet its ultra-broad, pratfall-filled comedy will satisfy only the most indiscriminate teens.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 38 Loren King
    Tawdry, trashy yawn-fest that makes the viewer long for the days when bad girls were dangerous dames with sultry style.

    No doubt a labor of love, the result is just plain laborious for the audience.

    Will your preschoolers enjoy it? Perhaps. Is it worth 88 minutes of their lives, or yours? Not in a world where "Sesame Street" is on TV every day. Not even in a world where "Sesame Street" didn't exist.

    Despite some imaginative fatalities, is less a movie than a slick video game.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Loren King
    Throws its obvious predecessor, "Waiting to Exhale," into relief, making that 1995 syrupy revenge fantasy look positively Shakespearean next to the moronic Two Can Play That Game.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 25 Loren King
    Unimaginatively recycles all the teens-in-the-woods gorefest conventions.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Loren King
    A video game cum movie that substitutes shrieking decibel levels for a coherent plot and any resemblance to originality.
