    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A family-friendly, Hallmark Channel-ready musical dramatic fable whose plot more closely resembles Spike Lee’s “Red Hook Summer.’’
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Frey's harrowing depiction of this milieu transcends the indifferent acting and contrived plot.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Atmospheric and moves briskly, but it's basically TV writ large.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    You know a low-budget indie has problems when it's less emotionally honest than a studio-backed project like "(500) Days."
    • 36 Metascore

    I don't think we're expected to take After.Life any more seriously than Ricci's last extended (near) nude role in the immortal "Black Snake Moan." That one was more fun.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    “Risky Business” it’s not, and Delevingne is no Rebecca De Mornay.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The film at least achieves the level of mediocrity thanks to the professionalism of two slightly younger participants — Kline and Mary Steenburgen, who also have Oscars on their mantels but go well beyond phoning it in here.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A fussy piece of schmaltz that makes you long for "Stand By Me," a vastly superior coming-of-age tale from King's pen.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    There are a few decent jolts in Disturbia, but overall this ultra-predictable thriller doesn't live up to the hype.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Out of the Furnace is much longer on style and belligerence than actual substance.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Seriously lost in the woods. This aimless epic about a pair of charlatan brothers sinks under the weight of a problematic script, questionable star casting, hamfisted editing -- and penny-pinching by Gilliam’s latest patrons, the Brothers Weinstein.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A glacially paced, emotionally frosty epic (with a top-drawer cast).
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Becomes almost laughably melodramatic and wields just about every rock-movie cliché in the book.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The Secret Life of Bees showcases Fanning, who is growing into an impressive teenage actress - even if a scene where she licks honey off an older boy's finger is, well, creeptastic.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Infuriating grab-bag of a movie.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    It isn't the laugh riot of the year.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Slight and unremarkable.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A glossy, empty and ultimately unsatisfying — if undeniably entertaining — movie.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The once-funny Robin Williams is still stuck in his excruciating touchy-feely mode.
    • New York Post
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Disappointingly skin-deep and almost shockingly wholesome, Mary Harron's The Notorious Bettie Page lives up to neither its title nor its advertising slogan, "the pin-up sensation that shocked the nation."
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    McKellen, Csokas, Bonneville and particularly Richardson are so good and convincing in their characterizations that you can almost overlook the increasingly unbelievable twists that Asylum takes. Almost.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    It's a reasonably funny religious satire that takes potshots at easy targets but is quite watchable due to the participation of two Oscar winners and two Oscar nominees.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    District B13 looks great, but don't let those subtitles fool you. At heart, it's every bit as proudly dumb as its American counterparts.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Was Alma a masochist? Repressed? Neurotic? A pre-feminist? Don't look for insight here.
    • New York Post
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Amusing without being particularly biting.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    To put it as positively as possible, there's never a dull moment in this flick - and that's not something you can take for granted at this time of the year. At the same time, though, there's rarely a believable moment in the script.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Sometimes painfully sincere male weepie.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Too much of the film is given over to the soap opera of Elmer's life.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Sporadically entertaining, occasionally quite funny.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    James Van Der Beek plays the same suspect over a 50-year period, sporting some of the worst old-age makeup in memory in the present-day sequences.
