    First-time writer-director Mark Hanlon lands only glancing blows in this grim black comedy.

    Watching Meryl Streep act can be an exhausting experience - and never more so than during Music of the Heart.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    It's not uninteresting, but so much footage is given over to earnest discussion of sexual politics that the overall effect is like sitting through a semester's worth of transgender studies.

    Even dumber than Perry's "Three to Tango," this latest sitcommy exercise is sporadically funny in spite of itself -- and not quite as dreadful as you would suspect.

    Do your kids a favor - and take them to see something more worthwhile than the relentlessly vulgar and stupid See Spot Run.

    Might have been more successful if Darabont and his pal had attempted a Preston Sturges-like farce. Instead, it's played totally without any kind of edge - a fantasy that makes "The Lord of the Rings" look realistic by comparison.

    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Strong contender for the weirdest movie released this year.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Features all too much footage of the scowling Burns, who has a narrower range than almost any actor working in Hollywood these days.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Somewhere along the way, Borstal Boy became fatally compromised.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Repackage clichés and stereotypes with attractive young performers in a simple-minded script that panders to the teen audience.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Horror-movie vets Harrington ("Wrong Turn") and Sagemiller ("Soul Survivors") struggle unsuccessfully with characters who are frequently more plastic than Nikki.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This relentlessly mediocre romantic comedy is basically a pretty arthritic third-generation Xerox of "Annie Hall," with Jason Biggs and Christina Ricci in the old Allen and Keaton parts in a probably quixotic attempt to court the youth market.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Never decides whether it wants to be a black comedy, drama, melodrama or some combination of the three. The acting and direction are all over the map in this consistently depressing, if occasionally interesting, slice of life.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Though it boasts excellent performances by Anna Friel and Michelle Williams as bosom buddies whose lives meander over three decades, it plods on with a wearying predictability and some truly terrible dialogue.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Amidst the ennui, there are some fine performances.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    One of those painfully earnest -- and pretentious -- little indies in which a pair of emotional cripples neatly resolve all of their problems within 48 hours of meeting each other.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    An uninspired recycling of themes that were far more gripping in "The Lion King" and countless other earlier Mouse House classics.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This messy, disappointing, self-important and utterly humorless version of the Marvel comic book character may be the toughest flick with a green protagonist to sit through since "The Grinch."
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The clichéd and predictable Suspect Zero is the latest evidence that Hollywood has run the serial-killer thriller into the ground through overuse - the same way it earlier exhausted, say, buddy action-comedies.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Mind-numbing, would-be comic-book franchise, which often seems as blind as its hero -- not to mention deaf and dumb.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Relentlessly dopey and vulgar.
    • New York Post
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Dumbed down to the point where it's barely recognizable as coming from one of Donald Westlake's John Dortmunder novels.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This (hopefully) final chapter's interminable first hour...showcases some of the clunkiest dialogue and wooden acting since the most recent "Star Wars" movies.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    That Eulogy has any laughs is largely a testament to the understated Romano -- he and Deschanel are the only ones in the cast who aren't straining to be funny.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    There are a few good jolts - and a moderate amount of spurting blood - but things pretty much proceed exactly as you think they will.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This is the time of the year movie studios traditionally dump their mistakes into theaters -- and boy, did Disney make a whopper with The Count of Monte Cristo.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Well-meaning yawn-fest.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A depressingly predictable journey of self-discovery.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A brightly colored but terminally dull cartoon.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Recycles every cliché of the genre to sleep-inducing effect.
