    An adequate horror movie for the Halloween season, but it too easily sinks into haunted-house-film conventions, even if the haunted house is decked out as an Italian luxury liner.

    Disappointingly hollow.

    Doesn't aim for more than padding a plot around Kennedy so he can do his Brad "B-Rad" Gluckman character full-force. And the joke soon wears thin.

    There's nothing original about the father-son conflict that forms the core of the film, nor is there enough suspense and drama.

    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.

    The situations and jokes are as predictable and as lowbrow as the endless pratfalls the boys take in their high heels.

    Like its parade of predecessors, this Halloween is a gory slash-fest. It can't escape its past, and it doesn't want to.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Loren King
    Despite some imaginative fatalities, is less a movie than a slick video game.
    • 15 Metascore

    Unimaginatively recycles all the teens-in-the-woods gorefest conventions.
