    Mandel Holland's direction is uninspired, and his scripting unsurprising, but the performances by Phifer and Black are ultimately winning.

    What saves the film from utter forgettability are the strong supporting performances, especially from Peter Caffrey as the town atheist, and Tony Doyle.

    A romantic comedy with neither humor nor sparks between the leads, Marci X attempts to lampoon gangsta rap clichés so obvious they feel ten years old -– “Malibu's Most Wanted” brought more to the table.

    Think "My Best Friend's Wedding," subtract gay best friend, dorky karaoke scene, charm, and any hint of malice or conflict, and you've got it.

    This lame hostage movie doesn't even deliver for Seagal fans.

    Prochnow rocks; nothing else does.

    Every bit as pathetic and unfunny as it looks.

    Rent a porno instead; it'll be less exploitative. God help us, two more of these things are planned.

    There might have been a decent comedy here if someone had remembered to insert some actual humor.

    If Big Momma's House isn't as bad as you imagined, then you've no imagination at all.
    • 35 Metascore

    May steal from the best, but it does it so badly and obviously that it has to depend upon gratuitous shock-cuts and soundtrack stings to elicit any kind of reflex-action fright from the viewer.

    Only Quaid, as a semiretarded horny robot, and Cleese as a fussy chauffeur hologram seem to get it. Even Murphy, as the titular nightclub big shot in outer space, forgets to be actually funny until the climax.

    OK, so you can't afford women who'll bare flesh for what you're paying. Then don't make an exploitation film!

    The film was cut down from an R rating to get a PG-13, but even if it had full-on Eliza Dushku nudity -- and it doesn't have anything close -- Soul Survivors would still suck.

    What it lacks are solid performances, save Slater's game attempt to take everything seriously.

    Its most redeeming quality is that it's so inoffensive parents can feel OK about taking kids.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Luke Y. Thompson
    But there is a saving grace: Seemingly aware of how weak the material was, the filmmakers have filled it with wall-to-wall beautiful naked women in every other scene, complete with a little gratuitous lesbian action. It can't save the film, but it'll keep you from dozing off.

    The lack of profanity or even alcohol (when in Mexico, the gang downs shots of hot sauce, not tequila) makes the film suitable for all ages, except for those old enough to want actual content in their movies.

    Hang out at a frat house or sports bar, and you can hear this kind of talk for free.

    Shoddy and ridiculous.

    Snow Dogs may simply be a stupid waste of your time. But if you know the source, it's an abomination.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 10 Luke Y. Thompson
    The overall film is hideously grating, thanks to an inconsistent look, animated titles all over the place, excessive explanatory commentary and abrasive R&B videos inserted throughout.

    Lansdown has a pretty good score by Atli Orvarsson... Nope, nothing else nice to say.

    Alas, Slackers sucks. It's so bad Schwartzman can't save it, though he tries mightily; a flash of nudity from Pearl Harbor babe and male-named model-turned-actress James King isn't even worth the price of a video rental down the line.

    Even those looking to catch a few Diane Lane tit shots will be so exhausted by the endless nothingness between each one that it won't be worth it.
