    This movie fails so spectacularly - and on so many levels - that it's like watching a train plummet off a bridge.

    Murphy has fallen back into the comfortable rut of sloppy family comedies that are low on laughs and high on toilet jokes.
    • 36 Metascore

    While sporadically funny, the sophomoric My Name Is Bruce is no "Bubba Ho-Tep," the movie where Campbell unforgettably played Elvis Presley as a nursing home patient battling a mummy with the help of John F. Kennedy. But Campbell's fans can feel free to add a star or two.

    Tom Arnold plays the fatherly head of a child-prostitution ring and John Malkovich a sympathetic social worker - two clever casting twists that constitute the main interest in the grueling Gardens of the Night.

    If you insist on seeing Soul Men, stick around during the closing credits for the best part of the movie, an interview with Mac.

    Rappaport does a yeoman's job in this tonally confused oddity. The wonder is that Hal Haberman and Jeremy Passmore's Special is making it off the festival circuit and into theaters at all, however briefly.

    Here comes Wayne Kramer's Crossing Over, a bid to create the "Crash" of illegal-immigration dramas.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Preposterous romantic melodrama, which uses a fractured narrative to cloud an absurd plot that would probably be laughed off the screen if it were presented in a straightforward manner.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Remarkably dull thriller.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Coming-of-age road trips have rarely been more tedious or predictable.

    You know a movie's got problems when the most memo rable thing about it is Sienna Miller's mustache.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A crass, heavy- handed and -- most unforgivably -- largely laugh-free adaptation of The Master's infrequently revived 1924 comic melodrama.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Jeremy Piven's infamous "sushi defense" for skipping out on a Broadway role is easier to swallow than his performance as a scuzzy auto liquidator who sees the light in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock achieves an amazing feat: It turns the fabled music festival, a key cultural moment of the late 20th century, into an exceedingly lame, heavily clich├ęd, thumb-sucking bore.
    • 39 Metascore

    Bad in ways that are almost endearing, St. Trinian's does offer the spectacle of Rupert Everett mincing around in drag as a headmistress bedeviled by Colin Firth, as an education minister and former lover who wants to shut down her out-of-control school.

    If Carrie Bradshaw ever trades her Manolos for sneakers and starts blogging about raising children, I pray she wouldn't be as tiresome as the heroine of Katherine Dieckmann's insufferable comedy Motherhood.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Relies far too much on an overdose of gore and a pack of hungry wolves to deliver its chills.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The longest 85-minute road trip you could imagine.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The material in this spy spoof is, pardon the pun, awfully frayed.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A dull, dumb and derivative horror film.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Mildly interesting.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Rarely does a movie go so thoroughly wrong in so many ways.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A yawn-provoking little farm melodrama.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    There are some decent actors and great costumes in this overly solemn compendium of rock clichés.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Something most have gotten lost in the translation.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A sluggish and prototypically earnest little indie on the not exactly fresh theme of a woman undergoing a midlife crisis.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Writer-director J.S. Cardone's low-budget mishmash offers precious little in the way of thrills and chills, much less coherent storytelling.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Has precious little to add to the canon -- and does so in a highly melodramatic manner.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The acting is, at best, serviceable; the sound track is too often unintelligible; the direction is often over the top; and the script relies heavily on stereotypes.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The characters are so cartoonish, it's hard to care on any level -- except that it wastes such talented performers.
