    A tenth of a movie masquerading as a full feature.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 10 Robert Wilonsky
    A stunning piece of work--stunningly inept, stunningly incoherent, stunningly awful in every single way imaginable.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Wilonsky
    Adequately breezy and sleazy -- a movie about the horniest man in the universe looking for a little one-night stand.

    This circumcised "Shaft" plays half-awesome, half-aw-shit; it exists almost as if to prove you can cram every Jewish joke in the Old Testament into a single movie.

    Instead of satire, we're treated to diarrhea jokes, dogs dangled from the windows of speeding SUVs and tasteless sobriquets bestowed upon anyone who looks vaguely ethnic.

    Like a half-remembered dream, the movie's often so overwhelming that even its dull, dead moments (of which there are many, unfortunately) leave you wondering what you're missing and what you've just forgotten.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Wilonsky
    A comic-book movie unashamed of its roots, meaning it's unabashed about being silly, overwrought nonsense, which works to its benefit--so much so that you're almost rooting for it by the end.
    • 40 Metascore

    Disappointing only because its best moments are transcendent; its worst moments, sadly, are just so ordinary.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Wilonsky
    So convoluted and half-assed it's tempting to dismiss it as unfinished; it feels like six different movies cut together by a blind editor.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 10 Robert Wilonsky
    Isn't any fun at all, which is ultimately the most damning thing you can say about a Bruckheimer movie.

    Murphy inhabited Jif like a sweet, innocent child, almost as though he were delighted to shed the cynicism and get down to the sweet, chewy center. Or day-care center, in this case.

    It will linger like a foul odor or the taste of tinfoil between the teeth.

    Nothing about Laws of Attraction is remotely original; even its title has the dull ring of the generic, like "Opposites Attract" or "He Said, She Said." See it or don't. You will never notice the difference.

    Sitting through Raising Helen is an exercise in frustration, because somewhere inside this big heap of Hollywood nothing is a something (someone, actually) worth saving and savoring. Her name is Joan Cusack.

    Little Nicky will redefine the phrase "worst movie ever," because it might actually be the worst movie ever.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Wilonsky
    Redundant to the point of being absolutely pointless, a sequel that's almost a note-for-note, beat-for-beat redo of its predecessor, only with all the entertaining stuff left out.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Robert Wilonsky
    For the large-type crowd, one that prefers to have its "dirty" clean and silly.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Wilonsky
    Certainly it exists solely to sell a soundtrack; the movie, like most made for teens, is well beside the point.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    Deafeningly dull movie.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 10 Robert Wilonsky
    A whole lot of something about nothing.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    It's a self-satisfied, self-loathing mess that demands you adore and cheer for the very person you come to hate well before its 105 minutes are up. Little Black Book will leave you feeling skuzzy.

    There's no kick to its bag of tricks...It's a mild one among biker pics, a tricycle only pretending to be a Hog.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    When the movie's not playing stupid, it's aiming for sickly sweet sincerity. It's such a jarring and inevitably juvenile juxtaposition it comes off like a Hallmark card parody written by the staffers at "Cracked."
    • 35 Metascore

    Stay away: Everything about the movie is rinky-dink, from its phony, lifeless dialogue to its drab, shabby sitcom look to its choppy editing, all of which can wear on you after 95 minutes that come to feel like an eternity.
    • 35 Metascore

    It's barely a movie at all, more like a thousand car commercials spliced together in an hour.

    It's too bad, then, that Anderson (whose only other major credit is "Mortal Kombat," but of course) and first-time screenwriter Philip Eisner felt so compelled to do away with suspense and turn Event Horizon into a big-budget slasher film.

    It's too easy, but here goes: This movie's a Loser. Sorry.

    One can only assume all the, ah, good stuff landed on the cutting-room floor, because it sure as hell didn't make it to Mars.

    This hackneyed, hapless and utterly useless redo of an overrated 1960s sitcom is excruciating to sit through for a dozen reasons.
    • 34 Metascore

    If the first movie played like a midseason TV pilot, its successor comes off like an extended episode of a generic sitcom.
