    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.

    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

    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.

    Might have worked as a 10-minute sketch.

    Slicker than most attempts to document Monroe's successes and tragic trajectory, but even her own words don't provide much more of an insight into what made this troubled icon tick.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The longest 85-minute road trip you could imagine.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A non-starter.

    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.

    Here comes Wayne Kramer's Crossing Over, a bid to create the "Crash" of illegal-immigration dramas.

    Hopefully Jennifer Lawrence will actually be given something worthwhile to do next time around. That would actually be worth paying to see.

    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."
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A depressingly predictable journey of self-discovery.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Feels like it was written and directed by an audience focus group in Omaha?
    • 43 Metascore

    Smartphone apps don’t particularly lend themselves well to political allegory or satire. But that’s precisely what the makers of this fitfully amusing animated adaptation of the once-popular game seem to be fruitlessly attempting.

    Filmmaker Josh Stolberg claims to have been inspired by real-life events, but mostly he ineptly rips off other movies and wastes a cast that includes Rosanna Arquette, Adam Arkin and Elizabeth Perkins.

    In this pretentious art-house downer version of "The Bad Seed," the only surprise is that the folks didn't ship the little monster off to the looney bin before he reached puberty.

    That someone as smart as Duchovny would get bogged down in such predictable treacle is a mystery worthy of investigation by Scully and Mulder.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This intense psycho-sexual drama doesn't easily lend itself to the camera.
    • 52 Metascore

    Less fun than any circus movie I've ever seen - and I've seen lots. Maybe they should send in the clowns.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Rarely have I wanted to fast-forward through a movie as much as Click, a treacly and not-funny-enough Adam Sandler comedy.

    Lust, Caution could have done with a lot more lust and a lot less caution.
    • 57 Metascore

    Even if Corben hadn't photographed Gatien with lighting that makes him look like a horror-movie villain, he'd hardly come off as innocent.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A murky and morbid dirge of a gay romance.
    • 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.

    Watching Meryl Streep act can be an exhausting experience - and never more so than during Music of the Heart.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Unlike Van Sant's grittier, less sentimental recent small films, it's twee enough to make your teeth ache. It's the director's biggest miscalculation since "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" 18 years ago.

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