    • 90 Metascore

    All foreplay and no climax.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Pretty slight, but for a campaign commercial -- which is what it feels like -- it's pretty long.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Wastes no time getting very loud and very silly and never really lets up.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    What little grace there is in Living Out Loud (and there isn't much) is all in LaGravenese's script, not on the screen.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    A dramatization of the life of Christ that takes as its script a word-for-word translation of the Gospel according to John, the adaptation is not so much tedious as pointless.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Another film about . . . a cretinous, grating loser.
    • 25 Metascore

    Lee's understated performance is a small treat.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Cletis Tout is both in love with and able to laugh at the conventions it adopts, which is exactly where it goes wrong. It's just a little too self-satisfied.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Never asks its target audience of self-referential baby boomers and their littles bundles of joy to take it more seriously than it takes itself.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Scrat's annoying ubiquity -- is just one piece of evidence that Dawn of the Dinosaurs has been focus-grouped and is now trying to please its presumed young audience a little more than is healthy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    I remained strangely dry-eyed up to the final shot.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Think of Phoebe in Wonderland as "A Beautiful Mind," only for kids. And with Elle Fanning, Dakota's little sister, in the Russell Crowe role of the gifted outsider, tormented by demons within.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Unfortunately, the actors seem overqualified for their parts, delivering earnest monologues that come across as clumsy transplants from the proscenium stage.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    The movie's half over before it really starts to whack at the funny bone.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    As filmmaking, it's a bravura performance, but as a film, it falls flat.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    The bad news? The story, which rumbles along like an unattended wheelchair on a gently sloping sidewalk.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    A little more literary than lifelike, House of D is a story that feels too pat, and too perfect, for its own good.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    A fairly straightforward, if preachy, tale about environmentalism.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Michael O'Sullivan
    Misbegotten buddy-bonding comedy of errors.
