    It seems nothing is left out, and the movie makes us begin to feel as though we've witnessed every swing the man ever swung.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    The film feels about as genuine and spontaneous as its evident lip-synching.
    • 33 Metascore

    There's an interesting story here, but Joffe never firmly wraps his arms around it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    Unlike its multifaceted director, the film never stretches its boundaries.

    Learn from the Evers family: The Haunted Mansion is not worth the detour.
    • 47 Metascore

    As cold and unseemly as that stiff found in the shower.

    There is a new definition of the term, "critic-proof movie," and it goes by the name Pokémon: The First Movie.

    Despite the filmmakers' efforts to humanize Wilson, however, Bill W. still dabbles in hagiography, valorizing the man while also painting him as a reluctant hero.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    Pleasant but dull formula film.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    The revelation of Little Ashes turns out to be none of the leading men but rather Gatell, a riveting actress cast as the girlfriend who is mystified by Lorca’s lack of sexual interest in her.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    A hackneyed police story, rife with clichés, implausibilities, and weak performances.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    Not even the always reliable talents of McKean and Lynch can help pull this comedy out of its ironic slump.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    Lacks the bite that can equal the Bruckheimer bark.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    The film squanders any potential it had to be a revealing look into female intimacy and instead uses broad-scale melodramatic strokes.
    • 21 Metascore

    Bratz is way too long.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    The kind of movie that gives "chick flicks" a bad reputation.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    Molina and Weaver, who, most of the time, perform brilliantly, move through Abduction as if on autopilot.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Marjorie Baumgarten
    An awful lot of good talent has been squandered in this by-the-numbers film.
    • 27 Metascore

    Have we such short memories that we have already forgotten last year's feeble "Johnson Family Vacation?"
    • 40 Metascore

    Duigan has the makings of a good yarn, but instead of trusting the story and his characters, he becomes fatally bogged down in trying to make statements.

    Everybody’s Fine – a movie about the lies grown children tell their parents – is, ironically, one of the most disingenuous movies to come out of Hollywood in a while.
    • 48 Metascore

    The special effects feature the most up-to-the-minute flash and dazzle that the Industrial Light and Magic gang has to offer -- but it plays like someone forgot to plug in the power cord; in other words, no sparks or electricity.

    If there were any brooms in Disney's new Sorcerer's Apprentice they would have to be used to sweep this tired dreck to the curb.

    With Filth and Wisdom, the Material Girl has now spliced the title of film writer and director into her list of accomplishments, but the result is, well, immaterial.

    Burlesque bumps and grinds. And then it continues to grind and grind and grind.

    Even if some of its history and buckles are askew, the film is still an original take on a Christian redemption story.

    My favorite line from the movie: "The god---- truth won't fit in your brain." How's that for cheap gimmicks for getting out of having to make a movie make sense?
    • 58 Metascore

    Despite a title change from "The Boat That Rocked" to Pirate Radio, this British import exudes about as much outlaw swagger as Tom DeLay in a dance competition.

    Perelman eases the transitions between the past and the present with echoing phrases and situations, but they all seem rather pat and contrived. Does he really think that repeated refrains from the Zombies oldie, "She's Not There," won't be a dead (so to speak) giveaway?
    • 69 Metascore

    Not even the rich and nuanced performances of stage veterans Smith, Gambon, and Birkin can save this British period drama from languishing amid the story's unfocused longings and unrealistic musings.
