    Strictly summer schlock.

    Devotes most of its energy to its costumes and makeup, which are fabulous. But that and a tabloid-worthy star just aren't enough to revisit this sordid tale as a kind of twisted comedy.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A mild, slow-moving drama that belatedly tries to argue that graffiti writers are political artists, not an urban blight.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The apolitical and well-meaning Home of the Brave is predictable and maudlin.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Hokey, inept tear-jerker.
    • New York Post
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The cast includes Oscar winner Louise Fletcher (Nurse Ratched herself) and Henry Thomas of "E.T.," and the special effects look like they were executed on somebody's laptop.

    Markopolos repeatedly tells us he was scared for his life -- accompanied by hokey archival clips and music -- though nothing actually happened to him.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Well, nobody said The Grand was another "Best in Show."
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    About as exciting as watching someone else's home movies -- albeit, beautifully photographed ones.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A silly, boring supernatural thriller that squanders a potentially interesting premise and the rapper Snoop Dogg in his ostensible starring debut.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Basically a carefully airbrushed and authorized portrait of the Gray Lady during 14 months when there was serious speculation about the paper's impending demise.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The plot contortions that very slowly unfold under Michael Radford's arthritic direction in Flawless are not much more entertaining.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Laughs are few and far between in the innuendo-laden script attributed to Dana Fox, who's also responsible for the reprehensible "The Wedding Date."

    Admittedly, I’m far from a fan of Korine’s “Gummo,’’ “Julien Donkey-Boy’’ and the absymal “Trash Humpers.’’ But that he is proud of making intentionally sloppy and tedious movies doesn’t make them any easier to watch. Or all that much fun, for that matter.

    Evokes such deja vu, you'd swear you'd already fallen asleep on the damned thing in the middle of the night on HBO.
    • 52 Metascore

    There's nothing you haven't seen before - and better - in Deadfall, which would seem to appeal mostly to fans of snowmobile chases.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Steve Carell is fatally miscast as an arrogant, flamboyant third-rate magician in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, which by all rights should have been a second-rate Will Ferrell vehicle.

    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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Harris can be a brilliant actor, and there are flashes of that here. But he's done in by a script that lacks any subtlety.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Sort of "West Side Story" set in 1958 Brooklyn -- minus the music or competent storytelling -- is clearly not dealing from anything close to a full deck.
    • 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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Picks up steam when it finally arrives in Cannes just in time to wreak yet more havoc at the big film festival, but getting there is pretty tedious. A little of the wildly mugging Atkinson goes a long way.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Solid cast notwithstanding, 10th and Wolf is a generic, direct-to-video-grade gangster movie.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Pandaemonium plays like a bus-and-truck version of such Ken Russell's '60s classics as "The Music Lovers."
    • New York Post
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    What starts as a fairly lighthearted satire ends in a tiresome, ultra-violent shootout -- and the film pretty much throws away the possibilities of Cruz's gender-bending role.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    There's little sense of the Carol Channing beneath the overdone makeup - if there is one.
    • 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.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    It would also help if they were given some dialogue that was actually funny, or at least more clever than the lines provided to Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl in the distressingly similar "Killers" from earlier this month.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Soggy, strictly by-the-numbers crime thriller.
