    I Dreamed Of Africa...and all I got was this lousy movie.
    • 33 Metascore

    Plays like a bad adolescent revenge fantasy on Ritalin, all jagged editorial edges and silly, pumped-up testosterone.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Belongs in the histrionic comedy genre, packed as it is with just plain silly situations that fail to elicit grins, much less guffaws.
    • 36 Metascore

    Tired and formulaic.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Simply a lousy film from start to finish.

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

    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.

    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.

    Kaplan's lustily awful film is to be avoided if at all possible, and if not, well, don't say I didn't warn you.

    De Palma's film is a mess from its anxious start all the way through to its new-agey end, relying heavily on cribs from Kubrick and Cameron and even the recent "Apollo 13."

    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.

    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.

    A dark comedy caught in a white-light washout, it's neither mean enough to be funny, nor funny enough to mean much.

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

    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?

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

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

    Charmless, unfrightening, and even devoid of the requisite gratuitous nudity, Anaconda just plain bites.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Toils in high school hell and doesn't even manage to come up with one good shock.

    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.
    • 31 Metascore

    Stupendously dull and infuriatingly obtuse.

    Maybe it’s time for Woo to finally make that musical he keeps talking about.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Ridiculously overwrought.

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

    It’s as deadly dull as the blunt end of a rifle.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Just plain dismal, an inexplicable mining of old, mid-level programming that has all the raging excitement of continental drift.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Meandering, sub-aquatic mess: It's so bad it's good, but only if you slide in on a freebie.
    • 24 Metascore

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

    Sad, sorry remake.
