    Painfully stupid.

    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.

    Should you get Carter? Sure - but make it the Michael Caine classic Warner Bros. is releasing on video next week.

    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.

    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.

    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Another mean-spirited black comedy from Todd Solondz, tries even harder than the director's two earlier films to shock and outrage -- but the overall effect of his sophomoric excess is tiresome and dull, like watching someone else's 2-year-old act out for the 50th time.

    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.

    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.

    Co-star Christina Applegate, who's much more at home in this down and dirty milieu, wipes the floor (in one scene, literally, in a ludicrous cat fight) with the erstwhile Oscar winner.
    • 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.

    Catwoman is pretty well summed up by Hedare: “This is a disaster. It’s a total bloody disaster.”
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Directed without wit or energy.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A lame teen comedy.

    Hollywood's Thanksgiving turkey arrives today - 27 days early - in the gobbling guise of the heavily hyped, brain-dead comedy, I Spy.
    • 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.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The often difficult-to-follow plot is sort of "Traffic" for nitwits.

    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."
    • 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.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Soporific, shamelessly derivative and barely coherent by American standards.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This masturbatory exercise is the least revealing "documentary" since Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedian."
    • 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").
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 29 Metascore

    This mess was directed with no skill whatsoever by Jesse Dylan, whose father, Bob, once urged us all to get stoned.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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").
    • 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."
    • 14 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Arguably the most insipid movie released so far this century.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The movie spins further and further into coincidence and incoherence.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    May not set back Danish-American relations, but it's amusing to imagine how this schlock would have turned out under Denmark's most famous director, the American-hating Lars von Trier.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Desperately unfunny and unexciting.
