    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Osment, playing a fatherless 14-year-old, has entered the sort of awkward adolescence that afflicts so many male child stars - and seems utterly intimidated by his esteemed co-stars.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Even the great Helen Mirren can do only so much to elevate this relentlessly mediocre, fact-inspired drama.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    De Niro gives a technically brilliant performance as Walt, struggling with a body that will no longer obey him.
    • New York Post
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Deafeningly loud and proudly silly epic.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Basically a watered-down collage of scenes from "Heathers," "Clueless," "Sixteen Candles" and numerous other teen flicks.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Harmless if not exactly inspired, and rarely hilarious.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A challenging experimental film that will never play in a commercial movie theater and is settling in for a two-week run at the ever-venturesome Film Forum.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Ambitious, guilt-suffused melodrama crippled by poor casting.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Wildly uneven romantic drama.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Except for a couple of isolated, mildly subversive moments, Hanks is basically playing the genial host of “The Wonderful World of Disney’’ rather than an actual person.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    That The Big Bounce works at all is a testament to Wilson, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter ("The Royal Tenenbaums") who probably could have come up with something better in his sleep.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The movie includes a recurring motif of immigrant taxi drivers - like them, the movie is constantly going around in circles.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A glossy gay soap opera that graphically illustrates new meanings for the term "missionary position."
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    An ultra-predictable if essentially painless romantic comedy.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The biblically themed Seraphim Falls moseys along very slowly, climaxing with a lengthy series of flashbacks and an appearance by Anjelica Huston as a medicine woman who may or not be the devil.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A brave but ultimately futile attempt at adapting a piece that is so quintessentially theatrical that it defies translation to another medium.
    • New York Post
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Complaining about the gooey and generic The Holiday is as useless as railing against fruitcake - this is a slick, throwaway chick flick designed to provide nothing more than mindless diversion between bouts of shopping.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Though Binoche does very solid work, she can't sell the idea of her and Law as a couple; the chemistry isn't there. Not much else rings true in Minghella's screenplay, which is full of coincidences and speeches about race and class.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Too crude for serious audiences and too serious to be good exploitation, Coming Soon is a teen sex comedy that's predictably getting a token theatrical release prior to its imminent debut on home video.
    • New York Post
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A chilly, pretentious and talky drama.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Yet another teen comedy that tries to have it both ways -- basically, "Mean Girls" with crucifixes instead of designer jewelry.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    So s-l-o-w-l-y paced it seems twice as long as its two-hour running time.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Ends up a nightmare of a star vehicle.
    • New York Post
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Thanks to (Douglas), Diamonds is quite affecting -- even if it's not a particularly good movie.
    • New York Post
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A determinedly raunchy holiday comedy about a libidinous, larcenous and perpetually soused St. Nick with a nonstop potty mouth.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Johnny English Reborn sounds like a reboot, but it's actually a tired recycling of something that wasn't exactly fresh to begin with.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    This is a by-the-numbers rehash that will leave anyone much over 5 enormously grateful that, if you duck out before the lengthy end credits, it lasts just over an hour.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A glorified TV movie.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Only mildly diverting and way too long for a movie aimed at kids.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    There are far, far worse ways to spend two hours than watching Jessica Alba in a skimpy bikini - as well as other natural wonders photographed in the Bahamas - in the airheaded underwater adventure Into the Blue.
