    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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Predictable and uninspired romantic drama fizzles like a wet squib.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Self-indulgent folly.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    It's so gosh-darned darling it almost turns your stomach.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    "Schindler's List" it ain't, and the whole is rendered occasionally surreal by Janusz Stoklosa's laughably heavy-handed score.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    It's a simple-minded celebration of speed that pretends to be nothing else, even throwing in the occasional wink to acknowledge its own silliness.

    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    De Palma fools around with split screens and slo-mo, but no amount of cinematic artifice can varnish over the fact that this is simply a bad film.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Bart Everly followed Frank around for two years, yet his film seems to consist mostly of regurgitated C-Span and news footage from the period, interspersed with asides from the outspoken liberal.

    There's a hint of nostalgia toward the end, with Jason encountering two nubile female campers in a virtual reality Camp Crystal Lake -- but it merely serves as a reminder that the franchise should have quit while it was ahead.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    At some point, all this visual trickery stops being clever and devolves into flashy, vaguely silly overkill.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    This one-joke comedy vehicle is flying through a laugh-free zone.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Despite oblique references to "Psycho" and "Children of the Corn," Freddy vs. Jason lacks the knowing wit needed to keep it afloat in an age when even the horror spoofs have been spoofed.
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    See it only for Paul Bettany's performance.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Frustratingly superficial.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Snoozy and unconvincing.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Combined with the eyestrain produced by the cheap cardboard 3-D glasses, the resulting vertigo is decidedly unpleasant -- although having moon rocks and blobs of cream pie flying out from the screen is kinda cool in a retro way.

    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Ryan spends much of the grubby-looking boxing drama Against the Ropes with her face screwed up in distaste, as if a dirty sock is being waved under her nose. Perhaps it's because the movie she's in stinks.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Kalem's grasp of dramatic storytelling is no firmer, and the disorderly film merely chases its tail for the second half, going nowhere fast.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    First-time director Ed Solomon has corralled a stellar cast for his indie drama Levity -- and then put them through paces as plodding as a draft horse's.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Spun is quickly exposed as being all flash, no substance.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    A sluggish meander through the life of the man considered by many to be a deity of golfing.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Violent and unoriginal actioner.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    The story is so slight, a low-wattage hair dryer could blow it away.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Beautiful Brit actress Sophia Myles ("From Hell") is so arch, canny and amusing as the posh, pink-obsessed spy Lady Penelope, it's as if she is acting in the movie this should have been.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Seems to exist solely to drive this observation home in the most heavy-handed way.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    The problem is that there's not a sympathetic character among the nasty, brutish males. And the women, except for a flashy cameo by a swimsuit-clad Paris Hilton, are given short shrift.

    This Alfie has been castrated.
