    A genuine oddity that's more watchable than it sounds.

    This overlong, obvious and indifferently acted melodrama was written and directed by Luke Eberl, a former child actor, before he turned 21.

    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.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This is one of those movies that's too cool to have a plot.
    • 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 clichéd, thumb-sucking bore.

    Dazzles the eye, numbs the mind and may cause deafness in some cases. Did I mention to bring along some Excedrin?
    • 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.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Dicey entertainment, indeed.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    In the clumsy hands of director Rob Marshall, this tacky, all-star botch more closely resembles a video catalog for Victoria’s Secret.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Seems almost like a self-parody of Williams' earlier work.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Rent "Enchanted" with Adams, and watch Goode as Colin Firth's boyfriend in his other current movie, "A Single Man."
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Relies far too much on an overdose of gore and a pack of hungry wolves to deliver its chills.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Repeatedly shoots for laughs -- but ends up mostly firing blanks.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Slick as a pig and reeking of phony sympathy for recession-wracked consumers, The Joneses is a black comedy about stealth marketing made by a filmmaker who's evidently much too close to the subject to bite the hand that feeds him.

    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Multiple Sarcasms happens to be the title of the play within the movie, and it turns out to be by far the most interesting thing in the film. Not that many people will want to suffer through the first 90 minutes of this vanity production to get there.

    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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Visually striking but portentous and pretentious.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A very shallow, very glossy 2½-hour travelogue starring a miscast Julia Roberts as a spoiled, self-centered divorcée who decides to get away from it all.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Incoherent, inept, testosterone-drenched mess, which is very much the brain-dead male equivalent of "Sex and the City 2."
