    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Wears out its welcome fast because of its artistic pretensions and self-absorbed characters. You'd be better off renting "Manhattan" instead.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    So slow the movie itself seems to be suffering from a hardening of the arteries.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Overall, The Last September is a real snooze.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The most depressing date movie since "Random Hearts."
    • New York Post
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Writer-director Julian Henriquez does a great job staging the lively musical numbers.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Infuriating grab-bag of a movie.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Awfully poky, even for an art film.
    • New York Post
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Very sentimental.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Fairly shapeless story.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The cinematic equivalent of enduring a cross-country airplane flight trapped in a seat next to a manic depressive.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Yet another murky film about the 1970s that's watchable mostly for its cast rather than the story.
    • New York Post
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Unfortunately, director Marc Foster (who co-wrote the screenplay) never allows anyone except Mitchell to play more than a one-dimensional character.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A too-cute-by-half Irish romantic comedy that's overloaded with movie references that begin with the title.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Entertaining, if maddeningly superficial.
    • New York Post
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    There are a few interesting moments, but basically Up at the Villa is dangerously short of sympathetic characters.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A glitzy and shallow satire about shallow people.
    • New York Post
    • 21 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Shallow and blatantly manipulative variation on "Awakenings" in which every plot development is telegraphed.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Ranges from exquisitely sensitive to crass, but overall, it's an interesting effort.
    • New York Post
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The once-funny Robin Williams is still stuck in his excruciating touchy-feely mode.
    • New York Post
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Much sillier - and the movie's nearly two-hour running time seems to last nearly as long as a vampire's afterlife.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    This cliché-filled labor of love is staffed with some fine performers - Jennifer Holliday sings at a juke joint and Frances Sternhagen plays an older version of Emily's sister.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Basically a Lifetime movie that somehow found its way into theaters.
    • New York Post
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Has its moments, but overall it's depressing.
    • New York Post
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Does not offer much in the way of exciting boxing footage.
    • New York Post
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    You rarely see movies as dramatically uneven as The Weekend, which has a dreadful, one-star first half - followed by an interesting, three-star conclusion.
    • New York Post
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Interestingly for an Israeli movie, the bombers are not Palestinians -- they're young, ultra-Orthodox fanatics.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Beyond the Ocean, which at its best is reminiscent of Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger in Paradise," doesn't integrate its two story lines in a particularly satisfying manner and the ending is somewhat abrupt.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    At heart a cliché-strewn melodrama about a bunch of white, upper-class Manhattan kids who aspire to ghetto culture.
    • New York Post
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    OK premise quickly deteriorates into a silly, badly acted slasher movie -- minus the slasher.
    • New York Post
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A shallow, stilted romantic thriller.
