    Like “Traffic’’ on a massive dose of downers, Ridley Scott’s The Counselor is a great-looking and star-filled but lethally pretentious, talky, lethargic drama.

    Even an appearance by Alec Baldwin as Moretz's eventual - if highly unlikely - savior isn't enough to keep Hick from leaving a bad taste.

    I've had root canals that were more enjoyable than Margot at the Wedding, Noah Baumbach's hugely pretentious, ugly and annoying follow-up to "The Squid and the Whale."

    The schmaltzy Diana is directed at a dirge-like pace by German director Oliver Hirschbiegel, whose film “Downfall’’ depicted the final days of Hitler and provided one of the Internet’s most enduring memes.

    The bottom line of Last Days seems to be, fame's a bitch. Yes, Gus - now start making movies again that tell stories, please.

    The sad truth is these durable 80-year-old characters, who peaked with a 1950s TV series, never even come to life in this bloated, misshapen mess, a stillborn franchise loaded with metaphors for its feeble attempts to amuse, excite and entertain.

    Have you ever seen a movie without a single believable moment? Perfect Stranger, a convoluted and altogether risible thriller with Halle Berry and Bruce Willis, manages this difficult feat.

    Sometimes there's a fine line between a labor of love and a vanity project, and The Lost City, Andy Garcia's heartfelt - but hackneyed and interminable - love letter to his native Cuba, repeatedly crosses it.

    Despite this seemingly surefire premise and cast of veteran comedians - there's even a cameo by Liza Minnelli as a masturbation coach - The OH in Ohio just lies there, without a single laugh.
    • 19 Metascore

    The only hint of professionalism comes from Cheech Marin as Cannon's boss, who at times seems to be acting in a different movie.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Toothless, unbelievable and not particularly funny, New Suit is no threat to "The Player," "Swimming With Sharks" or "The Big Picture," to name but three more interesting pictures in this inside-baseball genre.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A very belated and very silly follow-up to "Death Wish."
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Charles Busch's spoof of beach-party movies and psychological thrillers, an off-Broadway hit 13 years ago, stubbornly refuses to entertain in this unrelentingly dull film version.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A good cast can't save The Lodger, the utterly wrongheaded fourth movie version of a 1910 novel inspired by Jack the Ripper.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Repo Men is a rare film where Toronto plays itself. It's also the first I've ever seen where a typewriter is used as a lethal weapon.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Rates an "E" for effort -- and a "B" for boring.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An utterly clueless, relentlessly grim and rambling action epic guaranteed to displease devout Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, amuse atheists — and generally bore everyone.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The stars look bored out of their minds when the fourth episode of the franchise stalls between racing sequences.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A cheesy, often unintentionally funny, direct-to-video-caliber knockoff of "Aliens" that couldn't be more shallow.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The only prize this shamelessly derivative schlock is likely to be in the running for is the year's dullest thriller.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This low-caliber Gun Shy has singularly ugly cinematography by Tom Richmond that at one point shows off Bullock's facial hair.
    • New York Post
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A witless homage to "Shampoo" and "American Gigolo" that's brain-dead on arrival.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Without any believable characters or situations, Reindeer Games is about as appealing as leftover Christmas fruitcake.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's loaded with -- scenery-chewing melodrama, cornball pidgin dialogue and syrupy music.
    • New York Post
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A toothless, dated Seventh Avenue satire with shaky script, direction and acting - is the movie equivalent of something you'd find on the deep-markdown rack at Daffy's.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This bomb, which premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival, belongs in the same remainder bin as Spacey's "Pay It Forward," "K-Pax" and "The Life of David Gale."
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    You'd be better off renting "Eddie and the Cruisers" (1983) than slogging through this latest, far more dire recycling of the same rock clichés.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Ryan, the bodacious Seven of Nine on "Star Trek Voyager," is the only excuse to suffer through writer-director Harry Ralston's feeble comedy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Annoying.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Except for Brolin as an unlikely born-again Jew, nobody fares well under Mulroney's ham-fisted direction.
