    • 54 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Feels more like "Porky's" with marinara sauce than "Summer of '42."
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    There was absolutely no reason to make a new version of the 1970 comedy.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Do not be concerned if laughter trickles out of the scary parts or boredom creeps into the funny parts; this is to be expected.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Oddly off-balance, estrogen-powered dramedy.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Allegations of governmental double-talk and cover-ups are, unfortunately, boooring.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Awash in the kind of pretension that only the French can get away with.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's all too, too cute and too, too forced for words -- not to mention too, too dark.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    For a comedy, there are precious few real laughs. Three to be exact.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    There's so much wrong with this movie.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Neither funny nor suspenseful nor particularly well drawn.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The real problem is not the maudlin script or Madden's travelogue touch. It's Cage as Corelli, a miscasting that turns the normally volatile, edgy performer into little more than a spokesman for the Olive Garden.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    A feel-good movie only in the sense that it wants to reassure today's white people about our own enlightenment and how far we've come in the evolution of our attitudes about race.

    The makers of Godzilla obviously devoted so much manpower and time and energy and money to the admittedly fabulous special effects that they apparently had no budget left over for actors.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The story here is just not particularly amusing.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The jokes are lame, the set-up is stupid and Bullock, occasionally a winsome comedienne and here a co-producer, is annoying as heck.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The drug-fueled romp turns ugly, sexist and misogynistic, as so many rap-star vehicles do.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Cinematic sleeping pill.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    I never forgot for a minute that I was watching a cartoon, all the way down to the silly, pseudo-spiritual ending, an ending whose very incomprehensibility is actually one of the more endearing hallmarks of anime.
    • 29 Metascore

    Even the Richard Rich-directed animation -- except for some nice but gratuitous computer-generated walking statues and dramatic ocean waves -- is not appreciably better than Saturday morning cartoons.
    • 6 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The laughs are few, far between and pretty darn faint in this comedy.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Here, common sense flies out the window, along with the hail of bullets.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Its important if inflammatory message will bore all but Chomsky's fellow travelers to death.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Full of the kind of obnoxious chitchat that only self-aware neurotics engage in. Christopher and Grace probably deserve each other, but that doesn't mean that any of us do.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    I can't imagine why anyone would pay money to see this sorry excuse for a film, which plays more like a home movie than something from cinema professionals.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Clumsily under-written and feverishly overacted, it's as embarrassing to watch as it is perplexing.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    So bad that I predict there will be drinking games set around viewing it someday.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    A limp and exceedingly uninvolving melodrama.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Too highbrow for the multiplex and too literal for the hipsters, it's unsatisfying both as gothic camp and serious cinema.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    A loud, choppily edited and surprisingly unengaging portrait of speed demons.
    • 70 Metascore

    Very much like sex. On second thought, make that bad sex. Actually, sexual assault is more like it. It will leave you feeling used, bruised, violated, mistrustful and unclean.
