    An odd mix of seediness, sideburns and even scorpions, the movie nearly matches the Lisa Marie-Michael Jackson marriage for weirdness.

    This isn't the worst movie Warner Bros. has brought out this summer (Scooby-Doo, boo on you), but for it to work, you have to accept the irredeemable stupidity of almost every character. Time better spent: a Shaquille O'Neal film festival on video.

    There is no tension here. Actually, The Minus Man is minus a lot - intensity, a point of view, maybe even a point - and that equals an unsatisfying film.

    You can feel the movie going wrong in the first scene.

    Isn't tough to take as long as you've paid a matinee price.

    It's just too soon after those silly talking dinosaurs to put up with any movie about a talking horse.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Overproduced and essentially charmless.

    If grossness gives you the giggles, at least a couple of the movie's effects indeed put a little "wow" in this cinematic bowwow.

    What do you call a filmmaker who thinks imitating a screen benchmark can make up for emotions that are evading her actors -- Clueless.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The script is so bereft of real surprises that it's best to keep the lid on what few there are.
    • 48 Metascore

    It's no crime the movie has one or two endings too many, given that many thrillers of the past quarter-century have had the same. But Judd's latest is too harmless to be anything but a misdemeanor.

    Dramatically empty Norse warrior adventure.

    • 50 Mike Clark
    A stylistically fastidious, exasperatingly affected package that will put most people in the mood for slumber.

    Those who teach public speaking sometimes advocate telling your audience what you're going to tell them, then actually telling them, then telling them what you've told them. Sidewalks reproves this isn't a wise path for movies.

    If this is Dumas, there's a "b" in the middle and an extra "s" at the end.

    There's nothing very rockin' about seeing Gene Hackman give a rare indifferent performance as a Navy admiral trying to effect a rescue for which his hands are tied.

    Were some group to launch a rival to the Oscars called The Wackys, it could do worse than make crazed Crazy its first recipient.

    Likely one-week box office wonder.

    There's definitely some paradiso in watching Malena walking, but not enough to sustain almost two hours of cinema.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Even at its best, the movie plays like a clip reel.
    • 50 Metascore

    There's nothing super about the movie, aside from a loopiness that affords it a certain guilty-pleasure cachet.

    For novelty value, you can do worse than seeing Sean Penn in a rare chance to don evening-wear on screen, but this isn't a sight to sustain a two-hour haul.

    Tested my own love of the game more than anything since the time Roseanne screeched the national anthem.

    Snipes gives a looser, cooler performance this time around, though emotionally, it's closer to dead than undead. Blade II is for the horror faithful only; others will be grasping their crucifixes.

    This is the kind of movie that has always polarized serious film folk, while the public usually elects to stay home and prune shrubs.

    Has a three-way split personality, which happily includes an action-packed middle to ease the pain of its early protracted exposition and later action so slow that you'll be asking "Gotta match?" to the person next to you.

    Though Walt Disney's Peter Pan once implored us never to smile at a crocodile, the Irwins' own home movie is worth a couple of chuckles. Shivers, too.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The movie establishes good will (or even great will) in the initial scenes because it's so gorgeous, but the rest is such a slog.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Has added virtually nothing to two cinema genres with their own prodigious histories: ensemble and black.
    • USA Today
    • 49 Metascore

    Dull and unpleasant.
