    Quite possibly, this could have been a hit back in 1975 or so, and almost certainly for Blake Edwards, but here and now it's just a puzzling aberration.

    A colorful mess, all style and substances and little else.
    • 57 Metascore

    A forgivable error, but an error nonetheless.

    It’s as deadly dull as the blunt end of a rifle.

    It keeps you off balance, all right, but not enough to obscure the sad fact that Ghosts of Mars is a muddled, derivative disaster straight on through.

    Mitchell's film would be another example of why former SNL cast members should choose their scripts wisely, except that Schneider wrote this one.

    Eminently resistible, an unclassifiable cinematic leftover best left untasted.

    Why the Pokémon fad hasn't died off yet is one of the great mysteries of the universe, right up there with the Pyramids of Gaza and the white stuff in Twinkies.

    Instead of true grit and gutshot black-hatters, director Les Mayfield has crafted what may well be the world's first Tommy Hilfiger Western.

    It sounds as ridiculous as a "Pokemon" episode gone horribly awry.
    • 16 Metascore

    Would have made a hell of a short -- but falls flat on its hyperstylized face as a feature.

    To make a bad movie worse, even Ballistic's fight scenes, which ought to be the film's strong suit, are poorly edited, slice 'n' diced into incomprehensible blurs.
    • 35 Metascore

    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.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    A storyline that makes less sense than the current state of tech stocks on the Nasdaq.
    • 30 Metascore

    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.
    • 28 Metascore

    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.

    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.
