    You would never have predicted it from the breakout success of "Pretty Woman" nearly a decade ago, but it turns out that the pairing of Richard Gere and Julia Roberts has ripened over the years into something resembling month-old brie.

    When the enchanted crab is the most appealing character in a movie, you know you're in some serious metaphoric hot water.

    You'd have thought, in his infinite wisdom, the Lord would at least send stinkers like this direct to video.

    A leaden exercise in what can go wrong when movies attempt to explore mysterious forces with dated special effects and easy symbolism...a soggy mess.

    An uninspired, recycled Mafia gags caper.

    It's supposed to be visually exciting, but the result is more like a corpse-strewn Gap khakis ad than a triumph of technique. At least, based on the film's grainy texture and amber lighting, it's nice to know that the guy who shot every porn movie released in the '70s appears to be working again.

    It stinks pretty bad, but not so bad you'd go out of your way to avoid it.

    The whole vibe is so shrill and frantic that the truly accomplished actresses, like Bening and Bergen, are left to flounder. The less nuanced ones -- that would be you, Debra Messing -- are, to use the idiom of the movie, as pleasant to watch as a bikini wax is to feel.

    A moment of silence, please, for Kate Hudson's career.

    Despite all their seamed stockings and Wonder Bras, the Reagan High girls are as far removed from their sexuality as Jawbreaker is from comedy.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 20 Mary Elizabeth Williams
    Predictable, gratuitous and just self-referential enough to believe itself hip and knowing.
    • 16 Metascore

    One of the most mindless, shamelessly lazy films.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 10 Mary Elizabeth Williams
    One of the most dreadfully unnecessary movies in recent memory.

    The directorial debut of the writer of "The Usual Suspects" keeps tossing the genre hand grenades one might expect, but they all wind up duds.

    "Morgans" does bear the distinction of boasting the sourest cast ever assembled outside of a Lars Von Trier production.

    As stupefyng as Idle Hands is while the title appendage is still attached to Anton, it goes into a whole other realm of godawfulness when the demon digits take off on their own.
