    Tedious and pretentious.

    I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a prison picture as utterly boring as Jailbait.

    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.

    It's hard to imagine hardened New Yorkers actually paying to see this totally uncritical, gee-whiz celebration of stock car racing, its fans and its history, breathlessly narrated by Kiefer Sutherland and perfunctorily directed by Simon Wincer.

    Completed four years ago, Seeking Justice is dutifully directed, with an absolute minimum of thrills, by Roger Donaldson, whose credits include the terrific "No Way Out" (1987)...That film's title is a pretty good description of where Cage's career seems to be headed.

    A surprisingly unengaging and charmless fantasy from a director whose previous films ("Across the Universe," "Titus," "Frida") were, despite their other issues, never boring.

    Basically, this is Smith and his real-life son, Jaden (both affecting ridiculous mid-Atlantic accents) talking the audience to death for something like 90 minutes before the closing credits.

    Michael Brandt's soporific thriller is making a token stop in theaters before its January DVD debut. Miss it if you can.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Strands a good cast in a sea of stereotypes and clichés.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A repugnant little indie black comedy, poorly acted in hideous-looking digital video, guaranteed to send audiences fleeing for the nearest shower.

    Hollywood's Thanksgiving turkey arrives today - 27 days early - in the gobbling guise of the heavily hyped, brain-dead comedy, I Spy.
    • 39 Metascore

    A protracted piece of schmaltz, P.S. I Love You looks like a hand-me-down from Sandra Bullock and Drew Barrymore.
    • 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.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A tediously self-absorbed variation on "The Big Chill" and "The Return of the Secaucus 7."
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Grows tiresome rather quickly.

    We began this dismal movie season with one lethally bad World War II romance -- "Pearl Harbor" -- and now we're wrapping up with another howling dog.
    • 38 Metascore

    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.

    Goes from being tediously terrible to downright gigglesome.

    There's still no good reason to suffer through a half-baked little movie that proves indies can be every bit as boringly formulaic and artistically bankrupt as their big-budget brethren.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Arguably as effective as Ambien at inducing sleep, but possible side effects include uncontrollable laughter.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Exceedingly lame.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    So feeble it fails even as train-wreck exploitation. I’d be unkind, but not entirely inaccurate, to label Coppola’s sophomoric, er, sophomore effort as a director an offer you can refuse.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A shrill farce that strains credibility even by the standards of black comedy.
    • 57 Metascore

    As far as I’m concerned, death couldn’t arrive quickly enough for these eight stereotypically self-absorbed Los Angelenos gathered for Sunday brunch at which the hosts (Blaise Miller, Erinn Hayes) plan to announce the demise of their marriage.

    The latest catastrophe from the Weinstein Co.

    While there are some scattered laughs, the flimsy and nonsensical script - combined with the sledgehammer direction by Brian Robbins, make the similarly themed "Big Momma's House" look like Noel Coward.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Overlong, blandly soporific.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An excellent case for euthanizing the entire talking-animals genre.

    As much as we like Alec as an actor, it's hard to imagine that any amount of editing and reshooting under his supervision could salvage his complete ineptitude as a director.
