    Latifah, a formidable actress who's almost always better than her movies, easily dominates this hokey cross between "Glee'' and "Sister Act.''

    Jobs amounts to, at best, a Cliffs Notes version of the man’s early life. If you want the real story, you’ll have to read Walter Isaacson’s fascinating 2011 biography, which would make a much better film than this one.

    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Less than compelling as drama -- but boy is this an impressive collection of wildly ugly hairstyles, moustaches, clothing and "earth tone" furniture from 1983.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A sloppy and only mildly engaging documentary.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    When Neeson engages in bare-knuckle fisticuffs at the climax of the cartoonish Taken 2, I honestly couldn't figure out if the 60-year-old actor was actually present at all except for the close-ups.

    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A brightly colored but terminally dull cartoon.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A good cast equipped with cute names is forced to muddle through terminal whimsy in this less-than-magical adaptation of Aimee Bender's adult fairy tale, sluggishly directed by Marilyn Agrelo, who more successfully helmed the delightful documentary "Mad Hot Ballroom."
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    "Precious" worked partly because it did not wrap its sordid tale in Christian uplift and dime-store psychology -- elements that have made Tyler Perry a rich filmmaker but have turned For Colored Girls shrill and manipulative.
    • 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.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Suffers from terminal hoof-in-mouth disease.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    So unremittingly vulgar and inept it makes "The Best Man" and "Runaway Bride" look like masterpieces by comparison.
    • New York Post
    • 24 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Do your kids a favor - and take them to see something more worthwhile than the relentlessly vulgar and stupid See Spot Run.
    • New York Post
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Basically a deadly dull rehash of "Resident Evil," which in turn was a third-generation clone of "Aliens."
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Remarkably dull thriller.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The kind of movie that cries out for the fast-forward button.
    • 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.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A raunchy, sporadically funny comedy.
    • 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.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 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."
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This is less a documentary than a wholly uncritical celebration.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Pretentious, stagy and over-the-top update of Chekov's "The Three Sisters."
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The opening montage raises expectations of a serious, politically incisive depiction of the region. What we actually get is an offensively pandering, Bruckheimer-esque riff on the real-life Khobar Towers bombing of 1996, a Saudi Hezbollah attack that killed 19 Americans.
    • 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.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Amy Sedaris, channeling her inner Frances McDormand as a hyper admissions coach, gets most of the laughs.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A great-looking but wearyingly cliched and confusing vanity production.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Murphy has fallen back into the comfortable rut of sloppy family comedies that are low on laughs and high on toilet jokes.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Well-meaning yawn-fest.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Remarkably sluggish and not particularly suspenseful.
    • New York Post
    • 48 Metascore

    Might have worked as a 10-minute sketch.
