    Little Nicky will please Sandler's fans and likely won't win any converts.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    It's about as convincing as any other Arnie musclefest, but has a little too much resonance with real world events and ultimately comes off as insultingly simplistic.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Makes a great time capsule, a shot-on-the-streets glimpse into the texture of a bygone time, place and attitude, but a listless, lightweight odyssey.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Selick proves a clumsy director of live-action scenes and never overcomes the muddled, half-baked script or the scatological gags.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Well-meaning portrait of intolerance concludes as grand tragic melodrama, executed with a stately beauty in somber colors.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    If Chadha never quite overcomes her cliches, her good-natured humor and familial faith gives it a warm, winsome dimension.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Under Schnabel's direction, it becomes stilted and static, if not simplistic.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    For all its energy and inspired moments of giddy goofiness, Psycho Beach Party gets stuck in the sand.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Pitches itself somewhere between "Bound" and "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels," trying to add a feminist twist to the spate of Britain's bloody gangster thrillers and never quite succeeding.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    The film is inoffensive, and Baldwin is fun and engaging.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    The restraint so magnificently applied in "The Remains of the Day" has simply fallen into disconnection.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    So grim and humorless that the first half almost sinks into silliness.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    It's the chemistry between the women and the droll scene-stealing wit and wolfish pessimism of Anna Chancellor that makes this "Two Weddings and a Funeral" fun.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Disarmingly funny in its own naive way.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Does its job colorfully and entertainingly, as long as you don't lean too hard on such niggling details as logic, legality and the laws of physics.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    A collision of medieval fantasy and commando action movie, where you can almost believe in the high-concept mix-and-matching.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    It's all so visceral that it overwhelms the near-abstract story and smothers what passes for characters.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Rambling and easygoing, Nico and Dani is a modest but frank look at adolescent lust, both heterosexual and homosexual.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    It's an interesting experiment that doesn't quite work.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Taking on the sneeringly blase Alig may be a cagey career move for Culkin, but it's a disappointingly thin performance.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Barely substantial enough for a feature but just light and tasty enough to satisfy.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Seeks to shock and to outrage, and so far it's done both quite nicely.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    This is one family reunion where you need someone to act up or pick a fight, anything to bring a little life to the party.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    xXx
    Momentum, motivation and story are all swallowed by simple sensation, and the film finally exhausts itself for lack of stylistic imagination.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    The result is a heartfelt film brimming with ideas and passion but hampered by a literal approach that douses the emotional heat.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    Cranks up the hysteria to screechy sitcom levels.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    While it displays precious little originality or ingenuity, A Guy Thing is less graceless than most of its ilk and benefits from a likable cast.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    A perfectly competent, if undistinguished, action film that smoothes over all the most interesting bumps in the drama.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    It's more ambitious and passionate than thoughtful. Singleton is better at criticizing than understanding, and he leaves too many characters lacking a legitimate voice.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Sean Axmaker
    It's a passionate vision thick with eroticism, but the musky atmosphere gets a little thick and murky.
