    This is the time of the year movie studios traditionally dump their mistakes into theaters -- and boy, did Disney make a whopper with The Count of Monte Cristo.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    After the monster is subdued, then there's a much less humorous, and more mindlessly violent second half.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Relentlessly dopey and vulgar.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    What starts as a fairly lighthearted satire ends in a tiresome, ultra-violent shootout -- and the film pretty much throws away the possibilities of Cruz's gender-bending role.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    It's not uninteresting, but so much footage is given over to earnest discussion of sexual politics that the overall effect is like sitting through a semester's worth of transgender studies.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    One part cabaret, one part travelogue, one part comic heist, one part romantic tearjerker -- and all pretty tedious.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Director Kevin Bray, whose clichéd style betrays his music-video roots, devotes far too much time to the mechanics of the illogical plot.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Do your kids a favor - and take them to see something more worthwhile than the relentlessly vulgar and stupid See Spot Run.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    There are a few good jolts - and a moderate amount of spurting blood - but things pretty much proceed exactly as you think they will.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Given the complete lack of chemistry between Chan and Forlani, their rather awkward lip-lock isn't worth $10 to see. Sadly, neither is anything else here.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Devotes most of its energy to its costumes and makeup, which are fabulous. But that and a tabloid-worthy star just aren't enough to revisit this sordid tale as a kind of twisted comedy.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Features all too much footage of the scowling Burns, who has a narrower range than almost any actor working in Hollywood these days.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The year's most beautiful movie -- and surely one of the dullest.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Never decides whether it wants to be a black comedy, drama, melodrama or some combination of the three. The acting and direction are all over the map in this consistently depressing, if occasionally interesting, slice of life.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A mild cross between "The Big Chill" and "Sex and the City," this English-language German oddity is a romantic comedy passing through on its way to video.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    It isn't as ridiculous as this year's other version of a local best seller set during WWII ("Captain Corelli's Mandolin"), but it's arguably even less entertaining.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Recycles every cliché of the genre to sleep-inducing effect.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Androgynous Clea DuVall's performance shines through a foggily told, vaguely acted coming-of-age tale.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Somewhere along the way, Borstal Boy became fatally compromised.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Repackage clichés and stereotypes with attractive young performers in a simple-minded script that panders to the teen audience.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Mildly interesting.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A yawn-provoking little farm melodrama.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Dennis Rodman isn't half bad as a blond, multiply pierced Interpol agent.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Evokes such deja vu, you'd swear you'd already fallen asleep on the damned thing in the middle of the night on HBO.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A dumb, by-the-numbers children's movie.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Rarely does a movie go so thoroughly wrong in so many ways.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The material in this spy spoof is, pardon the pun, awfully frayed.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This intense psycho-sexual drama doesn't easily lend itself to the camera.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Though it boasts excellent performances by Anna Friel and Michelle Williams as bosom buddies whose lives meander over three decades, it plods on with a wearying predictability and some truly terrible dialogue.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A truly baffling late entry in the "Pulp Fiction" sweepstakes that ends up drowning in its own pretensions -- along with, quite possibly, what's left of Val Kilmer's movie career.
