    Feels like a hazy high that takes too long to shake.

    A blackhearted little film. What's being marketed as a frothy French confection about jealousy (specifically the jealousy of a regular guy married to a famous movie star) also just so happens to be a portrait of a marriage going down the toilet.

    In the end Monsieur N. could use a little less cloak-and-dagger and more of what made "The Emperor's New Clothes" work, i.e., heart.

    Satisfies and disturbs in just about equal measure.

    If Guess Who were either a whole lot funnier, or a whole lot less funny, it would be a far better film.

    The pleasure is entirely like eating cake made from cake mix. It's not like you don't know how it's going to turn out, or how it tasted the last time you ate it.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Michael O'Sullivan
    Plays like a piece of mediocre music, gorgeously rendered.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Michael O'Sullivan
    There's something that never quite works about the film.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 60 Michael O'Sullivan
    The movie is pretty unabashed about the all-but-corny sentiment: Each of us has something to give.
    • 41 Metascore

    Yes, Knowing is creepy, at least for the first two-thirds or so, in a moderately satisfying, if predictable, way.
    • 73 Metascore

    This slight but insinuating documentary by Abbas Kiarostami...will do nothing to advance or detract from the reputation of the acclaimed Iranian filmmaker.

    Based on "Romeo and Juliet" the way a martini is "based" on vermouth.
    • 55 Metascore

    Those who are only mildly curious, I fear, will be put to sleep or bewildered by the artsy and often pointless visuals.
    • 27 Metascore

    Rollicks and rolls, thanks mainly to Roth's over-the-top depravity and Xiong's swingin', "Crouching Tiger"-style choreography.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Derivative dumpling of a romantic comedy about Irish sexuality.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    At times, it's downright nasty; and that's when I like it best.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Guaranteed-to-bum-you-out conclusion.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Wants to be about life, death and the red liquid that flows beneath our skin. It ends up being more about stage blood and stupid plot tricks.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    The film actually gets to tackle some larger questions than one normally finds in the average fireball drama.

    There is still a self-consciousness and a forced quality to much of the humor that this TPT redux just can't shake.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Bizarre yet popular.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    This fairy-tale shtick, even when dressed up with a little class-war garnish, is hard to swallow.
    • 35 Metascore

    For those so inclined, it's nice to see the girl and the gangsta -- not the gunslinger -- save the day.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    A love boat afloat on the vast cinematic ocean that sloshes back and forth between the stinko and the fabulous.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Its one-sidedness flirts with propaganda.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's a case of the heart being in the right place, but the script getting in the way.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    As exhausting as it is exhilarating to watch, the film in the end is less than fully satisfying.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Tries to cram too many ingredients into one small pot.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    The franchise is cheapened by Disney's crass commercialism in releasing material that, by rights, should have gone straight to video.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Michael O'Sullivan
    Gripping, if manipulative and somewhat preposterous, drama.
