    About as thrilling as cleaning out your garage.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    As middling comedies go, this is neither as smart as it ought to be nor as dumb as you'd expect.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Barely even worthy of a straight-to-video release, as simplistic and silly as it is.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    An inoffensive, eminently forgettable bit of fluff.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    It's mediocrity at its most unremarkable.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    At its core the film is as standardized as the exam it seeks to debunk, and nearly as tedious.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Spottily directed and lacking the dubious merits of even the Friday the 13th franchise, this is one slasher film that should die a quick and lonely box-office death.

    The emotions are turbocharged and the topic is eternally relevant, but that's not enough to save Two Girls and a Guy from being a whiny, snoozy bore.

    Jawbreaker has all the heart and soul of last week's mystery loaf (a dish that made the weekly rounds at my alma mater, sadly). And like that unidentifiable bovine by-product, the film is a chilly, messy anti-treat, sweet on the outside, sickly on the in.

    The film itself is an effective enough metaphor for out-of-control bullshit that frankly, Koepp aside, was part and parcel of King’s novella from page 1.

    Feels more like Barry Levinson's "Tin Men" on Prozac.

    Remains little more than a briefly fascinating curiosity, a travelogue for those of us who can't actually attend.

    Like rocky road ice cream, The Rundown is chunky stuff, full of calories and easy to take in small doses. Also like rocky road, it’s bound to attract flies if you leave it lying around, and, more to the point, too much of it is likely to make you gag.

    It works only sporadically, and more as a comic outing than as a vicious battle of sexual predation.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Torpedoed by its own overarching idealism -- the film targets the new star system, the media, the studios, digital technology, and pretty much everything else you might care to think of -- and not enough script to back it all up.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    A dead-chamber misfire, a hollowpoint dud.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    At its core, a very manipulative piece of work.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Fumbles on so many levels it's just plain silly. To paraphrase the film's tagline: The Thirteenth Floor: You can go there, but why would you want to?
    • 48 Metascore

    A less cohesive action-comedy than its predecessor, Full Throttle is instead a freewheeling collection of random action sequences strung together with little or no discernible rhyme or reason.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    This new film version, sad to say, is a hollow shell of the original series.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    A boisterous, gooey miscue.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Eager to please, but it’s so lacking in real-world skate politics that it more resembles the chugging PG-13 mediocrity of Top 40 pop-punk-lite than the hard-core Black Flagisms of Peralta’s scathingly real doc.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    The script, written by the three brothers, is ludicrous and incomprehensible, and plays cat-and-mouse games with what could have been some deeply funny comments on race, wealth, and, in one inspired changing-room scene, eating disorders.

    A 119-minute trailer.

    Just watching the trailer for Oliver Stone's new football epic a few weeks back left me with a grating headache; watching the whole sweaty film practically put me in the ICU.

    In all honesty I'd advise you to go rent the stunning (and brand-new) DVD of the director's great "Le Mépris (Contempt)," which seems to me to be much more Godardian and much less hopeless.

    Saw
    Saw has its moments, and most of them are brutal in the extreme, but ultimately it's one tremendous misfire that will either leave you laughing or, possibly, gagging. Not what I'd call a winning combination.

    It's exasperating watching so much top-drawer talent wasted in a film that wraps itself up with one of the most preposterous (not to mention obvious) endings the genre has ever seen.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Possibly one of the dullest takes on a real-life murder mystery, this gutter’s-eye-view of the waning days of Los Angeles porn king John "Johnny Wadd" Holmes is barely as interesting as one of the big man’s films, and a lot less revelatory.

    My advice? Grab Mr. Peabody’s Wayback Machine and recast with Jimmy Dean.
