    There's no excuse for a thriller as lame, leaden and unthrilling as Godsend, which manages to take a potentially interesting subject - human cloning - and use it to put audiences to sleep.

    So bad it's awful.

    Might as well be called "Around the World in 80 Yawns."

    Wastes some veteran performers in a slight, silly musical fantasy with two left feet.

    None of this is remotely funny or interesting.

    Catwoman is pretty well summed up by Hedare: “This is a disaster. It’s a total bloody disaster.”

    It’s often hard to figure out who’s winning, much less care about it. One thing is certain: Nobody is going to be demanding a rematch.

    The acting is serviceable at best, the direction unfocused - and the special effects and makeup cheesy-looking. This is surely the most dreary-looking film ever shot by the great Vittorio Storaro ("Apocalypse Now").

    Spectacularly awful.

    When Will I Be Loved would rate no stars except for Campbell's brave, totally committed performance -- which deserves a far better movie than this.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Directed without wit or energy.

    Eric Schaeffer's rip-off -- er, homage -- to "Magnolia," is a marginally better movie than his previous self-absorbed atrocities like "My Life's in Turnaround" and "Wirey Spindell."

    A shipwreck. They say a dead fish stinks from the head first - but the animated shipwreck Shark Tale arrives reeking all over.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Overlong, blandly soporific.

    A real head-scratcher that somehow won the grand jury prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

    The latest, and let's hope the last, in the raft of uninspired, quickie Bush-bashing documentaries churned out by producer Robert Greenwald

    The low point of the new Shall We Dance comes when Miss Paulina finally confesses why she's so sad.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    So over the top that it often plays like a parody.

    This masturbatory exercise is the least revealing "documentary" since Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedian."
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A loud, coarse and witless family comedy.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Crashing chandelier, crashing bore.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Lumpy, preachy and soporific.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    No "Schindler's List," to put it mildly.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's not a bad premise for a movie, but writer-director Omar Naim, a 26-year-old Lebanese native making his feature debut, proves equally inept at handling plotting, actors and pacing.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    There's 80 minutes of mawkish, overacted melodrama - laced with gratuitous violence and profanity - before we get to anything more than the briefest snippet of a dance number.

    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The best thing about Some Body -- an amateurish, quasi-improvised acting exercise shot on ugly digital video -- is that it's all over in 80 minutes.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The talented cast doesn't stand much of a chance in this rambling, pointless narrative.

    Poor Keaton, a capable actor who was absent from the screen for several years, is hamstrung by the material even more than in last year's dismal "First Daughter."
    • 34 Metascore

    Deadly dull.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A vulgar, grating alleged "family" comedy.
