    A baffling mixed platter of gritty realism and magic realism with a hard-to-swallow premise.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Endlessly lame.

    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.

    You'd be better off renting Demi Moore's "Striptease."

    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.

    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."
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    After a slightly promising start, this great-looking but ultimately deeply confusing and unscary sci-fi/horror opus turns into a quite boring rehash of M. Night Shyamalan's post-"Signs" films.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Exploitation curiosity.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A totally ridiculous and incoherent sci-fi adventure.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Cisneros is an appealing actor, but he and Falling Awake get buried under a welter of clichés.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A real head-scratcher that somehow won the grand jury prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This is a terminally whimsical vanity project that would probably have been a chore to sit through even in its original intended format, a 20-minute stage monologue.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Plays like an unwieldy mishmash of "Big Momma's House," "An Unmarried Woman" and "The Burning Bed," with lots of gospel music thrown in.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Desperately unfunny and unexciting.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The movie spins further and further into coincidence and incoherence.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A collection of product plugs masquerading as a movie en route to home video.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    There are bachelor and bachelorette parties, as well as much misbehavior, in this glossy and unconvincing little flick, receiving a vanity booking on the way to video.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A low-rent, slow-witted horror flick notable chiefly for its hilariously unsuccessful attempt to pass off Luxembourg City as New York City.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Arguably the most insipid movie released so far this century.
