    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A witless homage to "Shampoo" and "American Gigolo" that's brain-dead on arrival.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The cowardly producers have banished the grit and darkness of Parker’s original.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A shrill farce that strains credibility even by the standards of black comedy.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Produced with the best of intentions by a California church and directed without distinction by first-timer Brian Baugh, To Save a Life would be bland and boring even as a half-hour after-school special.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Charmless and underdeveloped knockoff of "The Santa Clause."
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A cringeworthy, unfunny example of a culture-clash romantic comedy.
    • 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.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Director Uwe Boll and the actors provide scant reason to care in this crude '70s throwback.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Shapeless, sloppy, badly paced mess.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    More "the mild one" than "The Wild One."
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    You'd be better off renting Demi Moore's "Striptease."
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    To describe Love, Honor and Obey as a cross between "Duets" and "Snatch" doesn't begin to suggest how desperately unfunny this musical gangster comedy is.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Abysmal performances, limp direction (Will Gould) and a heavy-handed script drive a stake through a semi-interesting idea about the persecution of gay werewolves in a remote English village.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's loaded with -- scenery-chewing melodrama, cornball pidgin dialogue and syrupy music.
    • New York Post
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Overlong and not well-acted.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Things rapidly go downhill in this pinch-penny production.
    • 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.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Boring and desperately unfunny.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A hapless family film that's too scary for little kids and too boring for everyone else.
    • New York Post
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A triumph of misguided moviemaking, starting with a grotesquely miscast Mira Sorvino, who arguably gives the worst performance ever by an Oscar winner.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The leaden pacing, somnambulant performances and incessant symbolism in nearly every shot will soon have you thinking that The Three Marias is three too many.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Elaborate vanity production.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An instant candidate for worst movie of the year.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Amply demonstrates how even a movie with wall-to-wall action can be a crashing bore.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    In execution, this clever idea is far less funny than the original, "Killers From Space," which was directed by W. Lee Wilder, the vastly less talented brother of the great Billy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Annoying.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Antonio Banderas is unintentionally hilarious as Father Matt Gutierrez, a sort of Jesuit James Bond.
    • New York Post
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The talented cast doesn't stand much of a chance in this rambling, pointless narrative.
    • New York Post
    • 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.
