    Adequately breezy and sleazy -- a movie about the horniest man in the universe looking for a little one-night stand.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Wilonsky
    The movie, which feels as amateurish as a student film made for cable access, doesn't deliver the goods; the gotcha moment never comes.
    • 52 Metascore

    Cornier than the cornfields spread out in front of the dilapidated rural Texas manse inhabited by Robert Duvall and Michael Caine, playing grumpy old brothers with mismatched accents.

    Among the several iterations of Jules Verne's novel about the inventor's adventures whilst traipsing through England, Asia and the Wild West, this new one is the least impressive and most depressive. Even the 1989 made-for-TV version starring Pierce Brosnan possessed more spark and steam than this lazy, lackluster take.

    You're almost tempted to laugh at Birth by the end, but by then you're too busy cursing it to bother.

    It's time to run, screaming.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Wilonsky
    Has all the charm of a canceled CBS sitcom.

    Should make about $750, which is how much they need to save the farm, but a little less than Disney CEO Michael Eisner needs to save his job.

    Russell, a former student of Buddhist monk-philosopher Robert Thurman's, is reaching too far, straining too hard, saying too much that adds up to so little after all the mumbos and jumbos tallied up by film's end.

    Renders it a cross between "Three Men and a Baby" and "Monsters, Inc." But it's bereft of the charisma of the former and the energy of the latter; stuck in a frozen wasteland, it possesses all the vigor of a Popsicle.

    Its heart is in the right place, but it has no soul.
    • 46 Metascore

    Nothing happens. At all. Ever. Remember when Steve Martin was funny? Apparently, neither does he.
    • 42 Metascore

    Succeeds in scaring you and boring you at the same time; unlike Moore's movie, it's agitprop bereft of artistry, porn for Republicans.

    One presumes the only thing worse than making this disaster is actually watching it; wouldn't wish either on anyone.
    • 43 Metascore

    Freedomland manages a seemingly impossible feat: It's both turgid AND overwrought, eliciting the shriek that fades into a yawn without anyone ever noticing. It's a wholly dreary piece of work.

    The X-Men franchise takes a giant leap backward and off a cliff with its fourth offering.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    An utter drag, a tepid and sterilized telling of Susann's life.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    Singleton's version is cynical and silly--one long set-up to a closing scene that promises, or threatens, a sequel.

    Full of conspiracies, all The Skulls lacks is a brain.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    If this it supposed to be comedy, why isn't it ever, for one second, funny?
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 40 Metascore

    Disappointing only because its best moments are transcendent; its worst moments, sadly, are just so ordinary.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    The most offensive movie of the year.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    This limp gender-bender-baller from a first-time director and rookie screenwriter steals wholesale from that 1982's "Tootsie," forgetting only to retain a single laugh.

    Travolta is stuck giving a remarkable performance in a film so trivial and offensive its mere existence is as loathsome as it is laughable.
    • 31 Metascore

    Bernal can't decide if he's making a Tarantino homage or an Almodovar riff or an Albert Brooks tribute...and the wobbly sensibility finally knocks the movie's legs out from beneath it altogether.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    It punishes rather than entertains; it condescends, it offends, it loathes its audience.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Wilonsky
    This pallid little ditty, like the rest of Lance Bass and pals' oeuvre, is soulless, banal and derivative.
    • 47 Metascore

    Really, what women want is what all of us want: a decent movie, something vaguely insightful and occasionally funny. This isn't that movie.
    • 35 Metascore

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

    Bearable only because, unlike the recent spate of teen films, it's so breezy it barely even registers.
