    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    More "the mild one" than "The Wild One."
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A painfully sincere indie drama that isn't content to evoke only the misery of 9/11 -- it has to reference TWA Flight 800 for extra grief.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Hollywood’s ongoing campaign to remake every horror movie of the 1970s and ’80s has finally caught up with the Stephen King-Brian De Palma classic “Carrie,’’ and the results are distressingly anemic, pig blood and all.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A skin-crawlingly unfunny riff on Woody Allen's "Bananas."
    • New York Post
    • 31 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    There isn't a remotely believable moment in the script here, and Kramer's leaden direction only helps strand a capable cast headed by Heather Graham in an hour and a half of virtual laugh-free tedium.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Epic waste of celluloid.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A creepy, depressing and leering "comedy" that's a virtual collection of "What were they thinking?" moments.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Even if it weren't three years too late to parody Moore (ineptly played by Kevin Farley), Moore's ridiculous tribute to Cuban health care in "Sicko" is far funnier than anything in this desperately laughless farce from David Zucker ("Scary Movie 3").

    De Niro mostly looks miserable and very tired (a document glimpsed on-screen hilariously claims his character was born in 1970) and prattles on endlessly about forgetting the past.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Don't even think of visiting this French fiasco.
    • New York Post
    • 32 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Will Ferrell's terminally stupid, sloppy, campy and cheesy -- and thoroughly unexciting and unfunny -- experiment in "family entertainment."
    • 22 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A painfully earnest and totally unfunny magic-realist fable set on the Lower East Side that works in no way whatsoever.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    The only truly lethal weapons in the criminally unfunny action comedy Let’s Be Cops are the lame script, putrid direction and pair of sitcom stars mugging nonstop in frantic pursuit of laughs that have fled over the state line.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    This time out, Broomfield comes up with maybe enough halfway decent material for a 10-minute segment on a second-rate tabloid TV show.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    More than lives up to its name with ultra-campy performances, high-glucose direction, laughable dialogue, cheesy effects and a back-lot simulation of a Manhattan street that wouldn't pass muster on an after-school special.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    The movie has two modes - very loud and extremely loud - and all of the actors are encouraged to mug their hearts out. That even includes Cusack's real-life sister Joan, normally one of the most reliable performers in the business.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Sandler's latest ode to projectile vomiting, passing gas, gay jokes and physical insults to the groin is basically a feeble cross between "The Revenge of the Nerds" and "The Bad News Bears."
    • 32 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Beyond-lame satire.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    One bad movie -- in the original sense of the word.
    • New York Post
    • 13 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Stinko movies often unwittingly critique themselves -- and the brain-dead romantic comedy Down to You (which Miramax understandably didn't screen in advance for critics) is no exception.
    • New York Post
    • 9 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A low-end scam by Lions Gate Films -- whose recent "The Wash" was a masterpiece by comparison.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    An impressive supporting cast can't save this painfully unfunny, ham-fisted mockumentary poking fun at reality TV shows.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Zookeeper barely avoids a zero-star rating because of James.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    The title It's About You is something Kurt Markus claims Mellencamp told him when he commissioned the film. With the elder Markus' self-important, egotistical narration rarely shutting up, it was a fairly prophetic remark.

    Vanity, thy name is Kevin Spacey.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    His late father directed "Rambo: First Blood,'' but Panos Cosmatos' debut feature couldn't be more different - this would-be cult classic is the movie equivalent of gazing at a lava lamp for nearly two hours.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Misconceived, bloated and incredibly ugly fantasy epic.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A movie so pathetically lame that hopefully even Spears most ardent young fans will give this stinker a big thumbs down.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    The worst Hollywood musical so far this century, it’s another misstep for Sony Pictures, which also sponsored the abortive ‘‘The Interview.’’
    • 47 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    An unholy mess.
