    It devolves too often into slapstick shenanigans and comedy of embarrassment.

    Politics and art come together in predictable, moderately enjoyable fashion in Paris 36.

    Once all the pieces of the story are assembled, the whole thing turns out to be not that big of a deal.

    This may have been fertile grounds for satire in 1925, when Noel Coward's drawing-room melodrama Easy Virtue debuted on the stage, but by now this film version feels rather done.

    Portland's dreary climate is used to good effect, but it's not enough to make up for the director's needlessly convoluted approach.

    Isn't a complete waste of time. If Kutcher seeks to transition from national joke to lightweight actor, he's made a decent stab at it.

    Although the primary plot line turns out to be a letdown, there are aspects of The Machinist that redeem it. Bale's performance is one; another is the dull, metallic look of the picture.

    The real star of the film is Horton, whose straight-talking ways and supportive circle of friends are a stark contrast to the haughty insults of academia.

    The oddball cast, by the way, includes Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, who is infinitely more convincing speaking Cantonese than she is in her (presumably native) English.

    The ensemble can't bring enough, though, to overcome the unoriginal setup and predictable story arc.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    What could have been a complex portrait of a flawed man dealing with the perils of success ends up far less interesting.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    The increasingly unlikely escapades culminate in a finale that's as narratively lazy as it is morally questionable, lending further credence to the voices that proclaimed Haggis absurdly overpraised for the 2004 Oscar-winner "Crash."

    Whereas Carver writes about alcoholics, this movie is about alcoholism, which is completely different.
    • 59 Metascore

    There's a conflict between the film's need for some sort of closure and the messiness of the reality it depicts that leaves The Whistleblower even more unsatisfying than it was meant to be.

    It's just a shame that the search for the missing formula ends up feeling so formulaic.
    • 57 Metascore

    The relationship between Trishna and Jay never rings as true as it needs to for the downbeat third act to resonate the way it was presumably intended to do.

    Although the filmmakers reportedly worked with David Copperfield and other renowned real-life illusionists and tried to minimize the use of CGI, you're still left wondering how much of the magic is merely the kind Hollywood spits out by the terabyte.

    It's a fine idea, but Dominik beats that drum without cease, making his passionately furious message come across anything but softly.
    • 41 Metascore

    Perhaps the most curious omission from the movie Grassroots is that there's no mention at all of the classic "Simpsons" episode "Marge vs. the Monorail."
    • 54 Metascore

    This ode to indie legitimacy proves to be too cartoonish to feel real and not outrageous enough to be memorable.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    Well-intentioned but underdeveloped and self-satisfied, it feels at times like the ultimate movie for the millennial generation, or at least its stereotype.
    • 48 Metascore

    Lily Tomlin gives the movie a boost as Portia's radical feminist mother, who would hate this movie.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    The movie's conceit grows a bit stale even with a short running time, and ultimately the whole thing feels more like an acting workshop than a full-fledged human story.
    • 49 Metascore

    In retrospect, and with no disrespect meant, it may have been a mistake to entrust a story this polarizing to Bill Condon, the filmmaker who most recently made “Twilight: Breaking Dawn,” and “Dreamgirls.”

    By trying to inflate one remarkable life story into the chronicle of a generation, Daniels fills what could have been an inspirational, personal saga with a lot of hot air.

    Not content to make his point through sharp-tongued comedy, Hogan ends up beating a dead horse -- or shark, as the case may be.

    The Bling Ring still feels more like a magazine article overstretched into a feature length film.
    • 44 Metascore

    A thoroughly mundane experience.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    It's neither grounded enough to be genuinely horrifying nor over the top enough to be nastily fun.

    So, be warned: You may not learn anything from this mild, unremarkable film, but you might be tempted to order the deluxe, four-volume “The Complete Calvin and Hobbes” after watching it. I was, and I don’t regret it a bit.
