    Clooney has transformed a fascinating true-life tale into an exceedingly dull and dreary caper pic cum art-appreciation seminar — a museum-piece movie about museum people.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Its characters are as flimsy and expendable as the title suggests, while only the most gullible of viewers (i.e., those who've never seen a David Mamet picture) will likely be duped by the painfully et cetera who's-conning-whom antics or the mounds of forced sentimentality under which they're ill-disguised.

    • 30 Scott Foundas
    A schlock supernatural shocker.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Bearing a distinctly musty odor confirmed by its 2011 copyright date, this day-and-date Lionsgate pickup never achieves dramatic liftoff.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    A steaming compost heap of high-art pretense and half-cocked psychoanalysis that almost makes you sorry Nicolas Roeg isn't making pictures anymore.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    This appalling multiculti upgrade of the ’50s sitcom is about as funny as a bus accident.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Kinnear and Romijn-Stamos appear to be vying for the title of filmdom's least-convincing married couple, while Robert De Niro, as the movie's modern-day Dr. Frankenstein, takes his own expert career slumming to a new depth -- he's become an evil clone of a once-great actor.

    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Chandrasekhar is a master forger of images and situations from horror movies past, but unlike Wes Craven did in "Scream," he doesn't build on them in any way, and the result is the opposite of what's intended; the movie is stultifying.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The thunderous clashes between armies of computer-generated Trojans and Mycenaeans, when they do arrive, feel decidedly un-epic, as though we were watching a child's toy-box war between plastic figurines. Which makes them perfectly in line with the rest of Petersen's artless approach.

    • 30 Scott Foundas
    For all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone — save for a paycheck.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The movie's chief liability, though, is Rose herself, who also co-scripted with first-time director Robert Cary and who registers several notches below Nia Vardalos on the totem of unlikely double-threats.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Director Rob Reiner’s atrocious cancer “comedy” marks a new low in Hollywood’s self-flagellating “things to be thankful for” tradition.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    In fairness, the movie isn't the absolute worst of its kind and there's a certain charm to Butcher's amiable, puppy-eyed performance. But Michael McGowan's direction is as flat as an asphalt road, and his script is gasping for air long before it enters the final stretch.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Surprisingly unsexy, uninvolving affair.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    This depressingly uninspired action-comedy (based on the 1975–79 TV series) is Hollywood’s latest McMovie -- name-brand recognition as raison d’être or, if you will, creative bankruptcy on a very large scale.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Viewers of this Sam Raimi-produced, sub-"Amityville" scarefest are likely to hold the real grudge.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Not just instantly forgettable, but beginning to fade from memory even as its images still play across the screen.
    • 29 Metascore

    They only want us to play that tiresome guessing game: Is it all a dream or is it really happening? Instead, you may find yourself asking: Is this cinema or merely Cinemax?
    • 12 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Features fewer small-town scares than a rerun of “Dawson’s Creek” and more wooden acting than a marionette theater. Memo to Rob Zombie: Don’t fear the competition.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    As repellent and repellently opportunistic a piece of work as the various shock-horror provocations (The Isle, The Coast Guard) that helped to launch this worrisome career (Kim Ki-Duk).
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    There may, somewhere in the premise of Incantato, lie the inspiration for a fine farce, but under Avati's shaky stewardship, the picture is leaden and charmless.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The result is unquestionably an auteur film, but one festooned with so many bad and unnecessary ideas that one can’t help wondering if a more modest, hemmed-in version of the same project might not have proved more effective.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The tension rarely rises above a low boil.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Cosgrove and screenwriter Dean Craig aim for the kind of close-quarters chaos that John Cleese and Connie Booth turned into high comic art on "Fawlty Towers," but Caffeine's roundelay of sophomoric urination, masturbation and pedophilia gags isn't half as funny as the atrocious British accents of the largely American cast.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Honoré never gets beneath these characters' sunburned skins, and well before the end, the film tips irretrievably over into the realm of absurdity.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Strictly for the birds.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    A dreary, weary psychosexual thriller that's neither sexy nor thrilling.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Begins as a serious, straightforward account of the origins of the cocaine trade and "gangsta" culture in 1980s Harlem, but then downward spirals due to a weak plot and gratuitous violence.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    An anemic sitcom pilot dragged out to an excruciating 108-minute running time.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Pic has a stagy, boxed-in feel. Both visually and energetically, it suggests something that has been done onstage to the point of mechanized repetition. And even though Whaley is supposed to be playing a disillusioned character, it's the actor himself who seems fatigued and over-rehearsed.
