    A film so amateurish that only the professionalism of some of the actors makes it watchable.

    (Li)'s scenes are so clearly computer-aided that his moves are about as impressive as Bugs Bunny doing the same.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    Here's a movie without an ounce of human kindness, a sour and mean-spirited enterprise so desperate to please, it tries to be a yukky comedy and a hard-boiled action picture at the same time.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    If there's anything worse than a movie hammered together out of pieces of bad screenplays, it's a movie made from the scraps of good ones.

    I went to Crossroads expecting a glitzy bimbofest and got the bimbos but not the fest. Britney Spears' feature debut is curiously low-key and even sad.

    The astonishing success of the original "MiB" was partly because it was fun, partly because it was unexpected. We'd never seen anything like it, while with MiBII, we've seen something exactly like it.

    There's nothing wrong with Fast Food Fast Women that a casting director and a rewrite couldn't have fixed.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    Rubber-stamped from the same mold that has produced an inexhaustible supply of fictional Southern belles who drink too much, talk too much, think about themselves too much, try too hard to be the most unforgettable character you've ever met, and are, in general, insufferable.

    I seem to be developing a rule about talking animals: They can talk if they're cartoons or Muppets, but not if they're real.
    • 57 Metascore

    Even with Cecil B. Demented, which fails on just about every level, you've got to hand it to him (Waters): The idea for the film is kind of inspired.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    There is nothing funny about the situation in Teaching Mrs. Tingle.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    The movie never takes off; it's a bright idea the filmmakers were unable to breathe life into.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    Lumbering from one expensive set piece to the next without taking the time to tell us a story that might make us care.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    This is not the story of a fugitive trying to sneak through enemy terrain and be rescued, but of a movie character magically transported from one photo opportunity to another.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    The movie offers brainless high-tech action without interesting dialogue, characters, motivation or texture.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    When flashbacks tease us with bits of information, it has to be done well, or we feel toyed with. Here the mystery is solved by stomping in thick-soled narrative boots through the squishy marsh of contrivance.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    A long slog through perplexities and complexities.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    The kind of movie that somehow succeeds in moving very, very slowly even while proceeding at a breakneck pace. It cuts quickly back and forth between nothing and nothing.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    An uninspired assembly of characters and story lines that interrupt one another.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    There is some dark humor in the movie, of the kind where you laugh that you may not gag.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    It's the most lugubrious and soppy love story in many a moon, a step backward for director Sam Raimi after "A Simple Plan."
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    A first draft for a movie that could have been extraordinary.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    An innocuous family feature that's too little/too late in the fast-moving world of feature animation.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    So unsuccessful in so many different ways that maybe the whole project was doomed.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    Very seriously confused in its objectives.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    It's nice, but it's not much of a comedy.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    The movie doesn't know how odd it seems to cut from the bloodshed in the ring to the dialogue of the supporting players, who still think they're in a comedy.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    A witless recycling of the H.G. Wells story from 1895, with the absurdity intact but the wonderment missing.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    Big Daddy should be reported to the child welfare office.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Roger Ebert
    Jogs doggedly on the treadmill of comedy, working up a sweat but not getting much of anywhere.
