    Hollywood's Thanksgiving turkey arrives today - 27 days early - in the gobbling guise of the heavily hyped, brain-dead comedy, I Spy.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A truly repulsive piece of trash that says far more about the absence of values from contemporary filmmaking than the waywardness of teens.

    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.

    You'd be better off renting Demi Moore's "Striptease."
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The dreary, direct-to-video quality of the script, acting and cinematography in this latest entry seemed to inspire more yawns than screams, and not a few titters.
    • New York Post
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Not especially scary or funny, this lame comedy-thriller wastes a decent cast in a plodding tale.
    • New York Post
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's a shame, because the actors are so much better than the threadbare material.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    If you stay awake, you'll certainly feel more than a little ground down after watching perhaps 15 minutes of skateboard footage padded out with nearly 90 minutes of strenuously unfunny toilet humor - all cheaply filmed on a budget that looks as if it would scarcely cover the catering bill for "Gigli."
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The sloppily shot, crudely edited Head of State fails as satire, for starters, because of its utter disconnect from any kind of reality.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The "Prinze" of terrible movies is back - in what might charitably be called "Rear Window" for morons.
    • New York Post
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The effects are cheesy, the photography is murky, the sets look like leftovers from a Las Vegas stage spectacular -- and the flick appears to have been edited with a roulette wheel.
    • New York Post
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Dull and creaky soap opera.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This excruciating adaptation of the innocuous '70s cartoon show makes the film version of "Josie and the Pussycats" look sophisticated by comparison.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A boring, wincingly cute and nauseatingly politically correct cartoon guaranteed to drive anyone much over age 4 screaming from the theater.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An assembly-line high-school comedy that flunks miserably in all three subjects.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    So nasty, hysterical and long-winded -- and unintentionally makes capital punishment foes look so twisted -- you wish someone had administered a lethal injection to this dreck in its planning stages.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Desperately unfunny.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Essentially a weird series of nonsequiturs. I'd rather be watching a sequel to the much-maligned "Little Nicky" -- a Sandler film that was at least trying to do something interesting -- than this failed experiment in fusing high and low culture.

    Without any believable characters or situations, Reindeer Games is about as appealing as leftover Christmas fruitcake.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's basically the longest (a butt-numbing 21/2 hours), the most expensive (a reportedly obscene $150 million), most vulgar and by far the stupidest episode of "Miami Vice" ever.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Pointless and mind-numbing.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An alarmingly unfunny French comedy where the two main characters are constantly yakking on a cell phone at an airport.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Duplex, a shoddily constructed and alarmingly unfunny dark comedy that squanders the talents of Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore, is one real-estate deal you should walk away from.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Significantly more gruesome and noisy than its predecessor, and boasting more nasty-looking fluids than all the works of David Fincher combined, this version leaves few corpses unturned in its unstinting campaign to please gorehounds.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Soporific, shamelessly derivative and barely coherent by American standards.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's hard to say what's more offensive about the out-of- tune Radio - Cuba Gooding Jr. trying to ingratiate himself by mugging up a storm as a mentally challenged man, or the mawkish narrative surrounding him like so much syrup.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The movie spins further and further into coincidence and incoherence.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This mostly laugh-and scare-free turkey offers an utterly bored -- and boring -- Eddie Murphy taking a back seat to special effects, elaborate sets and a wispy story slapped together by David Berenbaum (the overrated "Elf").
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The script, attributed to Mark Schwahn, Marc Hyman and Jon Zack, is as confused as it is confusing, and the aimless direction by Brian Robbins doesn't help. It was apparently edited with a roulette wheel.
