    May shock many viewers, especially political liberals.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Neither newly revelatory nor formally innovative.
    • 38 Metascore

    Pic contains its share of viable gags and stars generate a certain degree of convincing chemistry. But eventually, the seams in personality design and artificially stitched-together script construction begin to show.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    More polished and better acted than many "inspirational" biopics.
    • 34 Metascore

    Though the Pangs prove culturally adaptive on a visual level, they seem completely clueless as to the tonal modalities of Mark Wheaton's admittedly undercooked, all-American script.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Undeniably topical but the lack of emotional investment in its characters renders it more intelligent than engaging.
    • 31 Metascore

    Scripter/helmer Sue Kramer's awkward freshman outing eventually coasts on the genuine charm of its leads. A strong vehicle for Heather Graham, who has never looked lovelier, "Gray" scores most convincingly in its reinvention of Carole Lombardian sexual screwiness as head-spinning gender confusion.

    Engages but underwhelms.
    • 60 Metascore

    Never completely takes off, yet somewhat overestimates the surrounding zaniness. Still, any opportunity to witness the improvisatory skills of Sarah Silverman, Bonnie Hunt and Amy Sedaris should not be missed.

    Thanked and vilified from coast to coast, Carter remains steadfast in his belief that Israel's policies in the Occupied Territories are unjust and counterproductive.

    Boasts dazzling hockey action, but its off-ice piousness makes for tough sledding for non-Canucks.

    The overly simplistic script by Zac Stanford (“The Chumscrubber”) hits nothing but high notes, making the whole dramatically less than the sum of its parts.

    Filmmakers underline the immediate relevance of their conclusion: In matters of war and peace, who we elect president is crucial.

    Meandering mindlessly, Wizards comes off as yet another humdrum Pottery artifact.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Lacks seismic guffaws but elicits many mild smiles.
    • 32 Metascore

    Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel's New World Order is less about an international cabal seeking world enslavement than about those who fervently believe such conspiracies exist and who crusade to defeat them.

    Ultimately, nothing can save this pic from the warm fuzzies.
    • 45 Metascore

    Picture touchingly conveys the everyday closeness of the Rashevskis, who are wont to tango their troubles away, but spiritual upheavals and tonal shifts feel artificial and strained.

    The bros are built, and "Hand," with its gorgeous shots of mist-shrouded woods and sun-burnished hay, plus a brief but rapturous foray into gay sex, may attract queer auds.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Simultaneously insightful and idiotic.
    • 40 Metascore

    It is the presence of Duncan as a Mike Tyson-esque, malaprop-spouting ex-champion that, at least momentarily, lifts the pic out of its mediocrity.
    • 48 Metascore

    A bathetic TV-movie-type "learning experience" that provides about as much insight into teenagers as 40s westerns did into Indians--it's all in the costumes and customs.
    • 86 Metascore

    A killer ending does not a movie make, and ultimately In the Bedroom may be more interesting to talk about than sit through.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    The ease with which the perky, big-eyed heroine ingeniously succeeds in improving the lot of everyone around her and the painterly manner in which reality in every inch of the frame is "improved" constitute both the "quirky" charm and the pure fishiness of the film.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Gentle, muted film of limited aesthetic ambition.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    In striving simultaneously to cover the transplanted rap scene, sample a wide range of groups, and give an unbiased picture of Cuban society, helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who have hitherto worked in short-form, blur the overall shape of their picture.

    Name cast, occasional deft touches and nifty contrast between the two locales cannot overcome script's terminal awkwardness.

    Far from encouraging "Survivor"-style competitiveness, the desert setting serves as a serene Club Med-type backdrop to the all-male bonding.

    In its reliance on emotionally loaded voiceover and its disconcertingly direct appeals for support, Len Morris' old-fashioned docu seems more designed for fund-raising pitches than theatrical release.
