    The jazz-scored picture relies heavily on quirkiness to round out shaky characterizations and inject interest into otherwise forgettable pairings.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Some six or seven men (women conspicuously absent), including a mayor, an immigration lawyer, a congressman and a "coyote," offer views on immigration. Unfortunately, they all say the same thing -- and it's nothing new, affecting or articulate.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Unfortunately, the documentary's impact is mitigated the benefactor's constant presence and paternalistic, infomercial-like exposition.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Documentary's insistent inflation of buried gold jewelry and watches into symbols of heroic defiance and transcendental tragedy rings hollow in the wake of weightier Holocaust testimonials.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Even a magnificently inspired Maria Bello proves insufficiently daring to save Richard Alfieri and Arthur Allan Seidelman's Chekhov-based chamber piece Sisters from pretentious psychodrama.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Unable to establish a consistent tone, picture goes derivatively screwball one minute and stickily sentimental the next.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Even Sandler diehards may pass on this mostly derivative paean to compulsive computer geekdom and male sexual dysfunction.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    While its questions of affirmative action and charter schools could theoretically resonate with American audiences, the picture's corny theatrics, talky, preachy approach and taxing 164-minute running time will not translate.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Competent but unimaginative horror entry.
    • tbd Metascore

    More scenes of Richner’s admirable efforts in the hospital and fewer expressions of admiration by the doctors and nurses he trains would also have helped to anchor the film’s sincere but repetitive hosannas.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Shetty’s need to maintain his characters’ romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    A behind-the-scenes comedy about the making of a reality TV show, My Uncle Rafael looks suspiciously like an outright sitcom itself, with the same careful dosage of sententiousness and one-liners.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    But atmospherics notwithstanding, the narrative unfolds unconvincingly in jerky fits and starts.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    This scattershot documentary — an undiluted advertisement for this temple of high-end consumerism — jumps skittishly from subject to subject, disjointed and repetitive for all but dyed-in-the-wool fashionistas.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Trite, sententious and generally unfunny.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    It's all so overdetermined -- each encounter of the present-day lovers mirrors some moment from the long-ago day when they parted -- that it reduces their whole affair to a matter of last-minute revisionism.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Ronnie Scheib
    Watching TV feels fundamentally old-fashioned in its storytelling. Thesping is solid, particularly by O'Nan, Nam and Jacobs. But the conversations feel artificial, overly concerned with re-creating period detail or interjecting relevant philosophical life concepts.

    With Cross jump-starting others on a liquid road to health, this glorified infomercial could saturate latenight TV after its April 1 bow.
