    An exploration of the way the sins of the father trickle down to his offspring, is dense with quirky characters and subplots all woven into a rather heavy-handed meditation on the evils of globalization.

    Can that achingly abstract thing called love be captured in a beaker or dissected like a frog splayed on a slab? That's the belabored premise of this dorky, clinically structured romance cooked up in the Sundance Institute's screenwriter and filmmaker labs.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Apart from some irritating and redundant camera tricks early on in the film, director Blair Treu plays it white-bread straight, delivering an uncommonly inoffensive, after-school-special-style teen flick.

    Despite his innate appeal and nimble line readings, Grace can't surmount the deficiencies of the underdog character screenwriter Victor Levin ("Mad About You") has saddled him with.

    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    What is astonishing is that husband-and-wife writers Wally Wolodarsky (who also directed) and Maya Forbes, with combined credits that include "The Simpsons" and "The Larry Sanders Show," could churn out something this nasty and ludicrous.

    There are more misses than hits among the myriad plot strands that make up the sweaty Spanish sex comedy KM.0.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    For a movie that's trumpeted as providing a probing look beyond the comic's onstage patter, there's an awful lot of onstage patter -- and what nasty, hateful stuff it is.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Some of the plot points are confusingly vague, the tone lurches wildly between genres, and the film's epilogue pushes the bounds of believability - but The Hard Word could never be accused of being predictable.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    It's a chaste "Austin Powers," a less ridiculous "Casino Royale," a more subtle "Spy Hard" — in other words, yet another James Bond parody.

    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Another big, dumb action movie in the vein of "XXX," The Transporter is riddled with plot holes big enough for its titular hero to drive his sleek black BMW through.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Follows a narrative arc as choppy as a messy windswell, and the result is a dog's dinner of profiles, repetitive narration, safety tips and banal "insights" into the joys and dangers of cresting waves that sometimes reach 70 feet.

    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    "Schindler's List" it ain't, and the whole is rendered occasionally surreal by Janusz Stoklosa's laughably heavy-handed score.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Possibly the most unintentionally hilarious film since Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from Outer Space," Steve Irwin's big-screen debut is destined to become an instant cult classic.

    Kidman gives an other stunning performance in Birth, but it is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma that ultimately reveals . . . not much.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    The central narrative is ultimately too one-dimensional to sustain interest.

    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Lee gives his childhood hero altogether too much face time to defend himself against the numerous allegations and charges of assault, both physical and sexual.

    This Alfie has been castrated.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A cheaply made, occasionally repetitive, but passionately argued documentary.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Apart from the slightly sanitized look of Reagan-era Harlem, this raw ghetto drama rings true, from the smooth dialogue to the unaffected performances of the central actors.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    So serious-minded it occasionally teeters on the brink of absurdity.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    A well-intentioned, semi-autobiographical pastiche, is trapped in a straitjacket of political correctness, self-conscious acting and spurts of try-hard dialogue that come off as precious.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    The movie is saved by its well-trained four-legged stars and the likable Liam Aiken ("Road to Perdition"), who plays 12-year-old loner Owen Baker.

    Psst! Wanna vicariously experience a consciousness-raising LSD trip and watch Sarah Michelle Gellar star in some explicit sex scenes?

    Director Timothy Linh employs a delicate - but never sentimental - touch which, combined with strong performances from the principals and Kramer Morgenthau's vivid cinematography, makes for a transporting experience.

    The trouble with authenticity in a punk rock film is that it comes off as amateurish, and while "Dolls" has a feverish energy -- and some good songs -- it suffers from crude performances and a trite rise-and-fall plot.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    This is an egotistical endeavor from the daughter of horror director Dario Argento (a producer here), but her raw performance and utter fearlessness make it strangely magnetic.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Megan Lehmann
    There's obviously some philosophical comment on the alienating effects of ho-hum toil buried somewhere in this weird mess, which features an irritating, theremin-heavy score. But can you be bothered stifling a yawn and searching for meaning? I would prefer not to.

    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Many of Kampmeier's characters are either ill-defined or clichéd.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Megan Lehmann
    Incoherent, laugh-free comedy.
