    A $100 million production of a 10-cent script, is so clunkily written, so bereft of any engaging ideas or emotions, you'd think De Palma would have sneered at it on first reading and passed
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Feels static and constricted, its intensity dulled by overreliance on dialogue.

    For the story of a man who made his mark on pop culture by being a likable buffoon, the irritatingly arch Confessions of a Dangerous Mind takes itself way too seriously.

    The fact that Swept Away got made at all implies there simply is no dissuading Madonna from her movie-star aspirations. Her tenacity is admirable, but it's also block-headed.

    Death to Smoochy? Yes, please.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Misses out on just about everything that made the original work, most notably Falk and Arkin, whose odd-couple pairing was the foundation on which the entire movie rested.

    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    An overly convoluted, tiresome mystery that exists primarily to antagonize the audience, Basic consists almost entirely of dense exposition, then concludes by laughing at anyone who tried to pay attention.
    • 41 Metascore

    This is a gleefully repulsive movie. Spun is bound to be described as bold and cutting-edge by those who confuse shock value with achievement. Most people, however, will just long for a shower after it's over.

    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    A compendium of missed opportunities, uninspired action and clichés so tired, you wish the screenwriters had called 911, too.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    No matter how much good will the actors generate, Showtime eventually folds under its own thinness.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    An insufferably artsy, pretentious work, the sort of picture that gives art films a bad name.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    There are frothy romantic comedies and then there is Jet Lag, a movie so thin it borders on nonexistence.

    This new, presumably improved Chainsaw is just as humorless as the original, but it's also slicker, glossier and resoundingly artificial.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is all moist grime and seedy atmosphere, and it's certainly something to look at: It's beautifully lurid. But it's an empty, unengaging movie, and by the end, it has become ridiculous, too.

    In the end, they are only moments, and even at a merciful 86 minutes, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights feels formidably long.

    Even though Taking Lives is not very good, it does contain a) a cool car chase and b) a sex scene in which Jolie goes topless. For some, this will be enough entertainment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Despite the actors' admirable efforts, everyone in The Door in the Floor is too affected, too fancifully written, to come off as anything other than conceits.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    The unrelentingly dull Where the Money Is tests his (Newman's) legendary charisma in a way no actor could overcome.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    A forced and wholly unnecessary sequel.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    A fairly tedious, stupid picture.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Singleton's sloppiest, laziest movie to date, springing to life in fits and starts, risibly mawkish and occasionally gripping, and often feeling like it was made up on the set.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    There's nothing here that hasn't been done before, and better, in any given "Halloween" or "Friday the 13th" sequel.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Has all the depth of an episode of "Joey."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    It's a redundant comedy, like hearing the same tired joke for the 100th time.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Art School Confidential, the first disappointment from director Terry Zwigoff, is all glum, dour cynicism.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    Neither as good nor as bad as you'd hoped it would be: It's just a mediocre exploitation picture with an inspired premise (succinctly spelled out by its title), loads of gratuitous gore, a dash of equally gratuitous nudity and enough inanities to make you wonder if Ed Wood rose from the grave to serve as a creative consultant on the project.

    There are three or four big laughs scattered throughout The Pink Panther 2, along with a smattering of decent chuckles. But all those moments combined account for maybe five minutes of screen time, which leaves you with another hour and a half of movie to sit through.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    More toy commercial than movie.

    The whole thing feels at least three summers too stale.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Rene Rodriguez
    The result is almost suffocating: a movie that has been tinkered and fussed with until there is no spontaneity left -- no warmth or life or messiness.
