    In the fourth and by far the worst screen version of "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers," Nicole Kidman's character struggles to stay awake - as will the audience.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The cowardly producers have banished the grit and darkness of Parker’s original.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Never rises much above yawn-worthy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A hapless family film that's too scary for little kids and too boring for everyone else.

    Though it tries — with a much too heavy hand — the new Evil Dead is far less humorous than its predecessor.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Lethargic direction, bland visuals, credulity-straining plotting and tin-eared dialogue turn even pros like Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Morgan Freeman into sleepwalking bores.

    Dreamworks Animation's clunky and wildly unimaginative Monsters vs. Aliens really doesn't have a clue what to do with the [3-D] technique.
    • 54 Metascore

    I'd call Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days harmless if it weren't for some totally unnecessary gay-panic jokes that could actually encourage bullying.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Well, it smells, all right, but authentic isn't the word I'd use for this maudlin male weepie, a compendium of the worst clichés of sports and journalism movies.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Hyperactive.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's nicely photographed but slow-moving, dull and utterly predictable.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Purposely amateurish.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A cringeworthy, unfunny example of a culture-clash romantic comedy.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Painfully unfunny spoof.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A baffling mixed platter of gritty realism and magic realism with a hard-to-swallow premise.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Endlessly lame.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Liev Schreiber's film version of "Everything Is Illuminated" achieves the impossible — it's even more annoying than Jonathan Safran Foer's gratingly precocious novel.

    Those endless end credits reveal that McKittrick previously worked at Steak & Ale, Roadhouse Grill and Friday's. He may well need to return to his line of work after a debut as dismal as this one.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Deadly dull.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    You'd be better off renting Demi Moore's "Striptease."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    One of my critical brethren opined that this sort of dumbing-down and low comedy may be the only way to sell the public a movie about the Iraq war. If that's true, God help us.

    The only thing remotely scary about Monsters is that Magnolia is releasing this boring scare-, suspense- and gore-free horror movie (which reportedly cost less than $100,000) on Halloween weekend.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A charmless, unscary, fatuous and largely incoherent fairy tale.
    • 36 Metascore

    The choppily edited and thoroughly wooden Serena utterly fails to catch fire, even when everything literally goes up in flames. So despite its big stars, it’s getting only a token theatrical release.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Things rapidly go downhill in this pinch-penny production.
    • New York Post
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The often difficult-to-follow plot is sort of "Traffic" for nitwits.
    • New York Post
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A perfect storm of wooden acting, hackneyed direction, inane scripting and laughably cartoonish special effects produces a shapeless mess more wearyingly stupid than arch-villian Dr. Doom is evil.
    • 44 Metascore

    Save your money and wait for the new 3-D version of the 1939 classic that Warner Bros. has promised for later this year.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    If I weren't already being paid to watch this movie, I'd feel entitled to compensation for having to sit through this many product plugs.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This masturbatory exercise is the least revealing "documentary" since Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedian."
