    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Bloated and incoherent.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Obvious and, frankly, 25 years too late.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    If you can't spell "bogeyman," you shouldn't make movies about him.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    The profoundly unconvincing CGI work only makes the sorry screenplay and lackluster performances look worse.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    The final irony is that it's tailored for a PG-13 audience: The violence is bloodless, the sex is all come-on and the surreally reckless stunts cater to viewers too young to drive.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Puerile, gross and pandering to the lowest impulses of teenage boys.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Is there anything so painful as a comedy whose every gag falls flat and then lies there, flopping like a dying flounder?
    • 7 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    As bad as the title, and much longer.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    The first fruit of wunderkinder Alicia Silverstone's First Kiss Productions, this muddled thriller-cum-romantic comedy of errors suggests that she might want to lay off the producing for a few years.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Lame, derivative comedy.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Utterly amateurish.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Pokey, blood-spattered, cheap-scare-larded prequel.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Crass, trashy and none-too-funny comedy.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    In the hands of a more gleefully provocative filmmaker, this variation on the standard erotic-thriller stew of sleaze, tease and murder, this ludicrous farrago might have been tawdry fun.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    The spectacle of the near-naked Ricki (Lopez) striking sexually provocative yoga poses while floridly extolling the virtues of female genitalia is particularly mortifying, but it's only one of many horribly miscalculated scenes.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This new SAW film is so utterly unimaginative it doesn't even count as hommage; it's just a smudgy copy of a still chilling original.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Formulaic hodge-podge that trades on a certain demographic's affection for the bogeymen of their formative years.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This amateurish comedy features some amazing sequences shot in Moscow. But everything else about it is second rate.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Even Spade's most dedicated fans would probably be better off staying home and watching a "Just Shoot Me" rerun.
    • 6 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This is sorry stuff.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    There's at least one ending too many, Union regularly vanishes for long stretches of the movie, and director Michael Bay's unmitigated pandering to viewers who whoop with glee whenever someone gets it between the eyes is genuinely distasteful.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    It's hard to imagine who would find this funny.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Juvenile and pointless.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    An excruciatingly unfunny comedy.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Director Jamie Blanks "Urban Legend" appears to be carving himself a career making slasher movies for a new generation; unfortunately, he's in no way improving on the originals.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    The story's broad strokes are painfully clichéd and its details make no sense at all.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Cynical and contemptuous of its audience, this lazy sequel oozes an insufferable air of self-satisfaction.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    In search of inspiration and the human spirit triumphant, they managed to cook up a pot of sanctimonious, reductive claptrap (which the credits confess was only "inspired" by Quinn's book) that's not in the least instructive or entertaining.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    An arty fright flick that's neither artistic nor the least bit scary.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This big budget mish-mash is almost unbelievably derivative and shockingly cheap looking.
