    The air of low-budget Eurotrash is unmistakable. Almost everybody has an unidentifiable accent.

    There's a germ of an interesting idea here, but it's smothered by gloomy cinematography a la "Seven" (1995) and grating implausibilities, like the fact that everyone lives in the kind of cavernous, dankly art-directed dumps that only internet millionaires and trust fund twinkies can afford in the real New York.

    Director Uwe Boll sticks with what he knows -- how to turn video games into dull, cheap-looking movies.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    An excruciatingly unfunny comedy.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 25 Maitland McDonagh
    Lazy, superficially au courant and utterly forgettable.
    • 15 Metascore

    This sour coming of age story is a testament to his self-centeredness and dogged perseverance.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 30 Maitland McDonagh
    Unfortunately, the mystery isn't mysterious and the characters are caricatures; the wintery New England landscape is the most striking thing about the film, but it's not interesting enough to justify watching it for 100 minutes.

    Obvious and, frankly, 25 years too late.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    An arty fright flick that's neither artistic nor the least bit scary.
    • 13 Metascore

    The less said about the story's twists and turns the better, except to warn that they become increasing preposterous with each passing minute.
    • 12 Metascore

    This big-budget bore looks lovely but is so miscalculated that you can't help but wonder whether anyone involved had ever seen the original.

    Not clever. Not scary. Not funny.

    The gags are familiar collegiate stuff, involving horny young men, horny old whores -- horny young tramps -- silly foreigners, uptight authority figures, homosexuals and sassy fat women.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Painfully unfunny and misguided to boot.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    Crass, trashy and none-too-funny comedy.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 30 Maitland McDonagh
    This picture is just shapeless and shrill. It's disposable, forgettable and aimed at an audience that doesn't care.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This tedious hodgepodge of martial-arts mayhem, bogus mysticism and computer-generated special effects doesn't even pretend to have a plot.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This amateurish comedy features some amazing sequences shot in Moscow. But everything else about it is second rate.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    The story's broad strokes are painfully clichéd and its details make no sense at all.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 25 Maitland McDonagh
    The musical number that runs during the closing credits funnier than anything that precedes it, which isn't saying much.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 25 Maitland McDonagh
    The lighting and makeup are exceptionally harsh; all the women look shockingly rough beneath their garish makeup.
    • 7 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    As bad as the title, and much longer.
    • 7 Metascore
    • 0 Maitland McDonagh
    Preposterous, disingenuous, remarkably unfunny and genuinely distasteful.
    • 6 Metascore
    • 20 Maitland McDonagh
    This is sorry stuff.
    • 6 Metascore
    • 30 Maitland McDonagh
    Production values are low -- though, mercifully, the sound recording is clear -- and overall the project smacks of juvenile hijinks.
    • 5 Metascore
    • 0 Maitland McDonagh
    Vulgar doesn't begin to describe it: Try one of the foulest, least funny films ever made under the rubric of black comedy.
