    Cast and crew have a blast making a family movie that spoofs its James Bond-like premise, is jam-packed with action, sweaty-palm suspense and adventurous, high-tech fun effects, and yet never loses its at-the-core heart and sympathies.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 75 Paula Nechak
    Truly raunchy but it's more sweetly stupid and silly than anything.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Paula Nechak
    You walk away wishing they had more than this scant and often shoddy material with which to enjoy their rollicking and racy good time.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 42 Paula Nechak
    Is Queen of the Damned worthy of its hype or should it have a stake driven through its dark heart? The answer lies somewhere in between.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 16 Paula Nechak
    An insufferably insipid comedy with a cruel subtext.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 67 Paula Nechak
    It resorts to a story line so predictable that its willingness to go so earnestly into unoriginal territory is doubly disappointing since its first half had so much more going for it.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Paula Nechak
    A perfect example of form without content.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 16 Paula Nechak
    There's a vicious, crude nerve that snakes through this sequel and it leaves no group unscarred -- but unfortunately, women and the handicapped take most of the thrusts.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Paula Nechak
    A decidedly mixed bag.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Paula Nechak
    Feels the scratches of too much time and tinkling and is as disjointed as a dislocated shoulder.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 33 Paula Nechak
    The lapses in logic make a weak subplot about a serial killer on the loose just plain silly instead of provocative.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 75 Paula Nechak
    Scores high on nastiness, but it has as many surprisingly funny moments as offensive ones.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 42 Paula Nechak
    A bafflingly unfunny comedy.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Paula Nechak
    So poorly constructed and so elementally banal that it's a shock the script was written by the same guy (Nicholas Kazan) who wrote such taut thrillers as "At Close Range" and "Reversal of Fortune."
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Paula Nechak
    It has absolutely nothing to say -- no redeeming commentary about nihilistic, narcissistic society and its appetite for instant gratification -- which would have made it sociologically interesting, or at least sort of Faustian in theme. Instead Sex and Death 101 is as empty-headed as its protagonist.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 67 Paula Nechak
    In the end, dark comedy drives the film, but it's overwhelmed by a desire to be liked, really liked.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 16 Paula Nechak
    An awful, misanthropic, deadly unfunny and badly acted war-of-the-sexes travesty.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 33 Paula Nechak
    Tepid and only sporadically amusing.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 0 Paula Nechak
    A real dud, with few laughs, no characterization, little story, a cluster of stereotypes and clichés and just plain nothing for Foxx to do.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 25 Paula Nechak
    Tries mightily to have the charm of "Bull Durham," but instead fields raunchy sex jokes, predictable story line, dumb dialogue and a lackluster love affair.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 16 Paula Nechak
    Funny for 15 minutes and then fades into mean-spirited cruelty and stupidity.
