    The characters are so cartoonish, it's hard to care on any level -- except that it wastes such talented performers.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Hokey, inept tear-jerker.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Writer-director J.S. Cardone's low-budget mishmash offers precious little in the way of thrills and chills, much less coherent storytelling.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Suffers from terminal hoof-in-mouth disease.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Sort of "West Side Story" set in 1958 Brooklyn -- minus the music or competent storytelling -- is clearly not dealing from anything close to a full deck.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A silly, boring supernatural thriller that squanders a potentially interesting premise and the rapper Snoop Dogg in his ostensible starring debut.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The acting is, at best, serviceable; the sound track is too often unintelligible; the direction is often over the top; and the script relies heavily on stereotypes.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Dumbed down to the point where it's barely recognizable as coming from one of Donald Westlake's John Dortmunder novels.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    So unremittingly vulgar and inept it makes "The Best Man" and "Runaway Bride" look like masterpieces by comparison.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    You cease to care as they fall back on a catalogue of clichéd shocks, tired camera angles and an ever-mounting gore quotient.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Light It Up would be a strong candidate for the year's most irresponsible movie - if it were remotely believable.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This is a cheap-looking lowbrow comedy that likely would have gone straight to home video.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Something most have gotten lost in the translation.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A non-starter.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    There are some decent actors and great costumes in this overly solemn compendium of rock clichés.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A witless and vulgar romantic comedy wrapped inside a mock documentary.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A brightly colored but terminally dull cartoon.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Watching Meryl Streep act can be an exhausting experience - and never more so than during Music of the Heart.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Like many first films, Boricua's Bond is wildly uneven.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Much less a satisfying movie than an intermittently funny 90-minute acting audition.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Features less than 10 minutes of music in its mercifully brief 83-minute running time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Anderson, in her first major non-Scully film role, is lethally miscast.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Remarkably sluggish and not particularly suspenseful.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Pandaemonium plays like a bus-and-truck version of such Ken Russell's '60s classics as "The Music Lovers."
    • 58 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A real crock.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    First-time writer-director Mark Hanlon lands only glancing blows in this grim black comedy.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    It's bone tired.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A sluggish and prototypically earnest little indie on the not exactly fresh theme of a woman undergoing a midlife crisis.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Li is powerless when the film slows to a crawl to provide a little drama.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A lot more stupid action - and a lot less heart - than the character-driven original, as Stuart ends up rescuing Margalo from Falcon.
