    The movie and its star just aren't that funny.
    • 35 Metascore

    The dialogue is often drowned out by engine noise.

    It's not Deuce's satisfied clientele, but the audience, that gets the shaft.

    It's just so darn annoying to watch this attractive, seemingly smart woman throw her life away for some (admittedly rather hot) sex in the greenhouse.

    Not terrible so much as terminally silly.
    • 29 Metascore

    Tailored for the readership of Teen People magazine and about as thought-provoking as the average 500-word celebrity profile.

    The movie based on Young's 2002 memoir is a good bit blunter. One early laugh comes at the expense of a pig urinating on a woman's feet at the BAFTA awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars. And it doesn't get much better, or much smarter, than that.

    Seriously, though, watching New in Town left me feeling as pained as Zellweger, playing Lucy Hill, looks.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    A lowbrow, only fitfully amusing comedy.
    • 32 Metascore

    This time-travel scenario is by now shopworn, and the normally riotous Lawrence, a manic and gifted clown, is hamstrung in his efforts to eke humor from the anemic script.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    One overly busy (not to mention shopworn) story, which regurgitates everything from H.G. Wells's "The Island of Dr. Moreau" to the herky-jerky monsters of Ray Harryhausen to James Bond to "The Mummy."

    Really two movies in one, and there's not enough breathing room for both of them.
    • 38 Metascore

    Although filled with fey, flamboyant characters, the stereotype of the gay hairdresser seems to have been meticulously expunged.
    • 61 Metascore

    Unfortunately, the experience of actually watching the movie is less compelling than the circumstances of its making.

    Will satisfy only those who can't tell the difference between the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Despite its impeccable acting and subtle backdrop of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, The Event lets its message overwhelm its emotion.

    Easy on the eyes and hard on the head, Suriyothai is absolutely unaffecting where it matters most, in the heart.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Someone forgot to remind Duvall to write an ending.
    • 18 Metascore

    If this garbage sounds like your kind of thing, and the folks who jump up and talk back to the screen are your kind of people, then, sweetheart, you and this movie deserve each other.
    • 57 Metascore

    Made me feel like a Christmas goose being fattened for slaughter. Its force-fed diet of whimsy cloyed long before the eagerly anticipated romantic payoff arrived to put me out of my misery.

    • 68 Metascore

    It's a silly, if simultaneously deadpan and stomach-churning, psychological portrait of one crazy lady.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    The 20th-anniversary sequel to the groundbreaking horror film-and the sixth in an increasingly awful series about the bulletproof murderer Michael Myers-is a styleless and predictable affair.
    • 60 Metascore

    Torpid, syrupy melodrama from the Chinese director of 1993's "Farewell My Concubine."
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    The film doesn't even cut it as cheap escapism.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's laughably stupid, only fitfully scary and relatively harmless summer fun – if you're 12 years old, in which case you probably aren't supposed to be going to movies like this anyway.
    • 54 Metascore

    What's strangest, though, about Die Mommie Die! is how material that was obviously so giddily irreverent in origin became so inert, so joyless and dull.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    An offering so endearingly lame it seems to have missed the past 10 years' worth of special-effects breakthroughs.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    This latest, utterly gratuitous chapter in the saga of the wisecracking reptile hunter will add nothing to the ever-dimming reputation of the Subaru pitchman.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    With the exception of a few dazzling special effects and a digitally enhanced camera move or two... it's also a towering bore.

    Brit actors can't even be bothered to speak with French accents.
