    Julia Roberts owns this sweet-natured film.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    The problem is that the motion picture around these individual stunts is patently a committee-made artifact.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    If it weren't so pushy about selling itself, The Dish might have been a very special movie.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Looks like a very cheerful and imaginative accident.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    The movie gives us episodes from her life, and although some of them are charming and all of them well-played, I occasionally found myself wondering why I should want to be interested in this person.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    This relationship might be strong enough to carry an observational novel, but the movie feels like it's missing something.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Enough well-conceived jokes that the whole thing works very nicely.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    (Tyler's) voice is still mall American, and Onegin's rejection of her is nowhere near as puzzling or as tragic as it's supposed to be.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    When it counts, this film is absolutely successful.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    When the film is sexy, it's truly sexy, assuming that you believe sexiness has something to do with the exploration of a connection between people.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Worth a look, even if it doesn't quite find the internal logic it seems to be searching for.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Hughley and Jones have an explosively comic chemistry together; her kooky, open-faced looks are a counterpoint to his whipcrack improvisations.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Works best as a free-flowing essay.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    The storm is the reason to see the movie.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    For me, Trixie finds its own peculiar groove, and-buoyed by a compulsively watchable actress-folds neatly into the off-center work of a distinctive American director.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Bulworth shoots along with great vigor, and its non-politically correct jabs are occasionally exhilarating.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    I still feel pushed around by Darabont's mysticism, and his overbearing sense of grandness; a little bit of the Mile goes a long way.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    A reminder of why Bullock became a movie star in the first place.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Little of this is plausible, but it is beguiling.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Gibson's performance is robbed of his customary humor, and he flounders around in search of the character's core.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Robert Horton
    Good enough in spots to make you wish it could have sustained its campier inclinations.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    It's all safe and sane and bland.
    • Film.com
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A truly stunning technical experiment.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Sandler repeats his sweet-souled doofus routine, with nerdy Patricia Arquette as the object of his affections.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    For a good 40 minutes or so in the middle of this movie, De Palma is in his element.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    The movie itself gets scattered.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Enough pep in this picture to make it rise above teen-movie expectations.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    This director's (Winterbottom) reach is impressive, but this time it doesn't quite grasp.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    The story of Groove... provides an ingratiating road map to a cultural phenomenon. Just make sure you drink lots of water while you're there.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Does a lot of little stuff right, and it sparkles at times.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    As executive producer of the film, he (Freeman) clearly sees something in Alex Cross, a man much more interesting than the cheesy plot surrounding him.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    The result is fantasy that wafts away.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    It may be possible that people who never go to the movies will stumble across Blow Dry and find it a charming way to spend an hour and a half, but the rest of us will have the ending written in our heads by the end of the first five minutes.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    There's no way out of the excruciating melodrama, and the film withers in its trap.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A very silly film.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A generally dumb movie with a smart, appealing, gutsy leading lady.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A Mexican film that reaches for a very weird and risky tone, and, I think, fails.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Beginnings don't come much more lurid than this, and the rest of End of Days never quite reaches this level of flat-out wildness again.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Sometimes star power alone can keep you from walking out of a movie, and this is one of those times.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A collection of movie situations, recognizable from the films of Coppola and Scorsese, with a less obvious debt to Kazan.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A difficult time rising above the level of a reasonably nice TV-movie.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Go
    When the writing is good, Go is good, and when the writing is flat, things fall apart.
    • Film.com
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    These film-making provocateurs are divided between sweet and sour, between the romance of classic screwball comedy and Mad magazine on acid.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Not a crowd-pleasing, or even audience-oriented, movie; it's a two-hour-plus mood piece.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    There is a point in the movie when this mayhem crosses the line from wildly imaginative to downright insufferable.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Eventually fizzles out badly.
    • Film.com
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    It all coalesces in a TV-level pleasantness, which isn't quite enough to fill a big screen.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Destined to be remembered not for its laugh-per-minute ratio, but for breaking a barrier of crudeness in mainstream movies.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    A pleasant surprise that The Crew offers up the charms it does.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    This lightweight concoction can't justify a trip out to the multiplex, unless you're a girl between the ages of 12 and 17, but it does provide a launching pad for a group of attractive people.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Feels more like a backyard relaxation than a movie.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    Spacey and company deserve better.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    There's very little here that rises above the level of a competent straight-to-video picture, except that whenever Paul Newman and Linda Fiorentino are onscreen together they create something special.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Horton
    This mild but amusing comedy wasn't written by Levinson, and the accents may be different, but the feel is similar.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Edward Norton, who created a buzz of excitement in his first year in movies, stubs his toe with Worm... It's the same guy we've seen in countless mean streets pictures, but Norton doesn't find anything new to do with him. He's Ratso Rizzo defanged.

    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    So wound up in its own bungee cords, it leaves itself hopelessly tied in knots.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Does have its share of bona fide chuckles, but it falls shy of its possibilities.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    A skim-milk version of a yuppie romance.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    This is basically a movie about one neurotic woman and her neurotic L.A. life. .
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Until it backs itself into a narrative corner, Lisa Krueger's Committed is a delightfully unpredictable experience.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    I haven't got the slightest idea whether these characters are meant as satirical targets or as a reasonably fair cross-section of Today's Youth.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    The scene doesn't amount to much more than a logical extension of its lightweight premise.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Exemplifies the subpar state of movies today.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    It's like one of the baker's cakes, handsomely rendered on the outside but lacking flavor.
    • 36 Metascore

    What keeps Stardom watchable is Arcand's droll humor.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    In this case, I have to say, the sense of boredom.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    The brainchild of English director Ben Hopkins, who takes his time getting going. Too much time, really, as the first hour passes rather antsily, without quite achieving forward motion.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    There's something about The Woman Chaser that isn't quite thought through, in a basic way.

    I'll be damned if I can figure out how its various ingredients are supposed to blend together.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    A weirdly stillborn experience.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    She (Lopez) wipes away the unpleasant memories of "The Cell," and serves notice to Julia and Sandra that there's another girl out there who can do romantic comedy-even of the half-baked variety.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Even on its own terms, it stays sluggish.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    It's only when you see the movie that you discover how completely the film misses opportunities to develop these ideas into anything like movie comedy.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    This impeccable ghost story is utterly old-fashioned, a straightforward suspenser with no twists.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Mostly this film skims by on the surface, its conflict and climax visible from the opening five minutes.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    This fantasy-tinged romance leaves a distinctly bitter aftertaste.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    The plot is convoluted.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Beautiful is a mess, but not without interest.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    The opening reels here promise something big, but the movie settles for a sour, predetermined funk -- "Lord of the Flies" as imagined by a Nintendo junkie.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    This film, a remake of a hapless 1974 cheapie of the same title, can't even get the big chase right.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    As flat as the brim of a Mountie hat.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Moss -- in her first big role since "The Matrix" -- is the main reason to see Red Planet, a badly written and visually scenic space opus.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Everything about the movie is fine and dandy and dull.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    It's a notch above average, but Whatever It Takes can't get too far above that notch.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Not terribly enjoyable to watch.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Serves up the usual homilies, but it lacks the quirky density and cinematic snap.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Horton
    Has its dull spots, and is unintentionally laugh-out-loud funny at times -- but isn't that what we expect?
