    Just plain dismal, an inexplicable mining of old, mid-level programming that has all the raging excitement of continental drift.

    For all the swords 'n' sandals hoodoo that makes up the wilting backbone of Jonathan Hale's script, the Rock is, nevertheless, fun to keep an eye on.

    This was already tired stuff when cult fave "Sleepaway Camp" came out in 1983, and it’s downright comatose by now.

    It's not quite as bad as "Cutthroat Island," I'll grant you, but it's woefully close.

    A storyline that makes less sense than the current state of tech stocks on the Nasdaq.

    Sad, sorry remake.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Promises thrills galore but delivers only limp non-frights and predictable yawns.

    Get out your handkerchiefs. No, scratch that -- get out a pair of windshield wipers and staple them to your brow. Perhaps they'll obscure the screen.

    Meandering, sub-aquatic mess: It's so bad it's good, but only if you slide in on a freebie.

    It’s all very nice to look at, sure, but pretty colors and molten intercoolers aside, 2 Fast 2 Furious is about as exciting as a Yugo in quicksand.

    Michael Lehmann's "Heathers" followed the same sort of story line to much better effect in 1989, and Clueless leaves you itching to race over to the video store in search of just that.

    Dull and meandering documentary.

    I came out of Beyond Borders with the gnawing feeling I'd just been subjected to some sort of ghastly prank, Punk’d by the director of "GoldenEye" with Lara Croft as his willing confederate.

    Enough already.
    • 37 Metascore

    Amid the endless stream of catch-a-rising-star movie clichés that Honey screenwriters Alonzo Brown and Kim Watson throw up and out are a few new ones, notably "skinny girls always win out in the end" and "hootchie bad, faux hootchie good."

    Maybe it’s time for Woo to finally make that musical he keeps talking about.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Feels so depressingly vacant that it registers less as a film than as a pointed lesson in what not to do in the wacky world of non-traditional dating. Hasn't anyone in this film heard of Friendster?
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Ridiculously overwrought.
    • 37 Metascore

    Charmless, unfrightening, and even devoid of the requisite gratuitous nudity, Anaconda just plain bites.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Tired and formulaic.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    A dark comedy caught in a white-light washout, it's neither mean enough to be funny, nor funny enough to mean much.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Envy feels like a comedy in search of a drama in search of some sort of lugubrious existential meaning; it never quite seems to know where it's going to head next, and neither will the audience.
    • 24 Metascore

    Neither very scary nor very interesting, Godsend is an unresurrectable muddle.
    • 34 Metascore

    A smallish cast peppered with a pair of bullish performances by both Platt and the lesser-known Gleeson. The two spark some chemistry between them, which is more than can be said for Pullman and Fonda's moribund performances.

    This newest laff-riot from the once and future director of The Decline of Western Civilization documentaries is a lamentable mess, chiefly made up of stale gags that went bad sometime during the Kennedy administration and a stunningly unengaging romance that has all the snap of a moist cotton swab.

    Shoddily plotted and unimaginative, Species II is a slapdash effort at best, creepily unaffecting and minus the T&A this sort of film so desperately hinges on.

    With its eye-popping color palette and surreal sense of ever-heightening melodrama, Thunderbirds comes across as "Spy Kids'" poorer British cousin.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    This space invaders stuff is, like, so 1981.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Batman & Robin fails to engage the spirit of Batman, Robin, or decent marketing in general, and instead ends up as a limp, excruciatingly shallow knockoff that leaves viewers cringing at the unavoidable one-liners that make up the better part of the script.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Stupendously dull and infuriatingly obtuse.
