    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    One singularly unbecoming character, who should, by rights, forever remain a "singleton."
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    A series of cutesy but flat-footed jokes leading up to a foregone romantic conclusion.
    • 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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    A soundtrack buried inside a sitcom.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Tailored for the readership of Teen People magazine and about as thought-provoking as the average 500-word celebrity profile.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    It starts with a bang and ends with a whimper.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Functional but tiresome.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's creepy, all right. It's just that HOW it goes about creeping you out is sometimes just plain cheesy.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    The film stars Bruce Campbell of the "Evil Dead" series as Elvis in a touching, funny and at times grotesque performance that is actually the best thing about the movie.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Not enough to keep this celluloid ship from sinking under the weight of its own stupidity.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Less a tale of mysterious, tragic love than a three-way Harlequin romance.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    It has as much of an ax to grind as the humorless and misguided bureaucrats it mocks.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Gives new meaning to the word "obvious."
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Simply painful to watch as the doomed vehicle it's trapped in comes whistling toward a fiery crash landing.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    The title (which translates, essentially, as "burned out") is an apt description of the film itself: a hot and smoldering shell.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Set against "Mooseport's" backdrop of ramped-up whimsy -- and not the kind that charms, either, but the kind that gets old faster than uncovered cheese -- Romano just kind of disappears.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    A film so boring, unsexy, styleless, sluggish and physically ugly that its badness seems almost intentional.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    If you're mocking holier-than-thou-ness, you can't very well strike a hipper-than-thou tone.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Beyond mawkish, Radio would be harmless twaddle were it not for the offensive depiction of its hero, the real-life James Robert Kennedy.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's less a children's movie made for contemporary children than a children's movie made for people who still remember, and pine for, how children's movies were made 50 years ago.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    The film, like the cheap double-scotches quaffed down by the central character, leaves a distinctly sour aftertaste that's hard to wash away the morning after.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    The parodistic romantic comedy makes the fatal mistake of so much middlebrow satire: It becomes that which it mocks.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Unfortunately, the more traditionally drawn 2-D human characters are as flat, in every sense of the word, as can be.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Unfortunately, the experience of actually watching the movie is less compelling than the circumstances of its making.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    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.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Moves at a glacial pace.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    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.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    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.
    • 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.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 30 Michael O'Sullivan
    Really two movies in one, and there's not enough breathing room for both of them.
