    For anyone old enough to cross the street without holding hands ... the movie's a reconditioned lemon trying hard to hide its flaws.

    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.

    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.

    A lowbrow, only fitfully amusing comedy.

    But seriously, folks, if you're going to make a scary movie, shouldn't you be able to do it without resorting to both "Blair Witch"-style found footage and movie stars? (Will Patton and Elias Koteas also show up as, respectively, an angry sheriff and a psychologist friend of Abbey's.)

    The problem is not the credulity-stretching script. Or even that much of the movie just isn't all that funny. The problem is that it thinks it's freakin' hilarious.

    There are only two really good jokes -- or two really gross ones, depending on your sensibility -- in She's Out of My League. Both of them are stolen.

    Save yourself 10 bucks, and an hour and 45 minutes of your precious time.
    • 30 Metascore

    The movie itself is already like one long commercial.

    Playing a hero who's meant to be something akin to the young Dalai Lama, Ringer brings less than zero gravitas to the role. He makes the kid who plays Gibby on "iCarly" look like Sir Laurence Olivier.

    Wild Grass might be the strangest film I've seen all year. Maybe all millennium. Is it any good? Quite frankly, I have no idea.

    A comedy that looks like a documentary but plays like a horror film -- to parents of teenagers.
    • 36 Metascore

    The littlest children in your house may find something to titter at from time to time, but based on the reaction of a young screening audience, it won't be often.

    Suffers from an increasingly common movie defect: appealing, sharply drawn supporting characters, and a cast of main characters that is as unlikely as it is unlikable.

    At nearly two hours, the movie feels bloated. It could easily lose 30 minutes, give or take, and live. It would still not, however, live up to its title.

    It's hard to imagine that any self-respecting man would want to sit through two hours - let alone two minutes - of such caustic man-bashing.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Michael O'Sullivan
    That's the problem with the whole movie, which lies halfway between poker-face documentary and broad farce.
    • 33 Metascore

    Unnecessary and unfunny re-imagining of the classic satire by Jonathan Swift.

    This Arthur is an exercise in time-travel tedium, a trip to the Land That Funny Forgot.

    Did you hear about the Morgans? Trust me, you don't want to.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 Michael O'Sullivan
    A classic example of a film that doesn't trust the strength of its source material - or the intelligence of its audience.

    It gets the bullet points of Sam Childers's life, but misses the target.
    • 35 Metascore

    What's Your Number? ups the vulgarity, ladling it on top of a rom-com base so insipid and predictable that the only thing to keep you awake is counting the number of times that the script drops the word "vagina."

    Mainly for those who are already infatuated with Cena's stoic, Mount Rushmore-esque countenance and who do not find the idea of the big lug leaping off the edge of a cliff onto an airborne helicopter's landing gear remotely absurd.
