    There's a gripping thriller between the gaps in logic. Director Florent Siri has a tough style and an unforgiving attitude, but it drowns in the queasy blood lust.

    The warmth of Baker as the cuddly nature boy (another idealized image, certainly, but a romantic one) and the intelligence and fire of Lathan give the lesson, and movie, just enough heart to make it enjoyable.

    For all of its good-natured guff, Jersey Girl chooses uncomplicated sentiment over the messy complications of real life.

    Hodges cuts the film like a diamond, but it's just an exercise in cut glass, an impressive surface that only looks tough.

    The underdog story doesn't miss a cliche, even though it never figures out whether it's a boxing picture or a military drama.
    • 48 Metascore

    It lacks the invention of Pegg's comedies with Edgar Wright, which buzz and crackle with ideas and energy. This one simply plods through, just like Dennis. Only Pegg's doggedness gets this effort across the finish line.

    I can't imagine how Smith can capture a big enough audience to pay off this private joke, but the inner geek in me had too much fun to care.
    • 43 Metascore

    Michael Winterbottom's erotic drama isn't so much a story of a love affair as an anatomy of a sexual relationship.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Surely played better on the page than on the screen. What's left is the same old drill driven by brutal master race fervor.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Deyfus' haphazard filmmaking dissipates a potentially fascinating mystery into one long diversion.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    With a title like Chaos Theory, one might expect a little runaway energy or a dash of wild spirit under the antics, but there's little punchy anarchy in this controlled experiment.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Opens on a display of humiliation and human degradation at its worst and then rewinds, like a video surfer zipping back to replay a favorite scene, to the nominal beginning of the spiral.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It lacks both complexity and compromised characters. While the cultural backdrop is intriguing, the story is frustratingly conventional and familiar.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Just another low-budget effort from filmmakers who mistake cleverness for smarts.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It's kind of like "Tootsie," only without the drag. Or the class. Or the laughs.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    To be fair, Clockstoppers isn't a bad film, merely bereft of creativity and personality.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    A fumbling attempt to create the European equivalent of a Japanese manga thriller in the conspiratorial mold of "Akira" and "Ghost in the Shell" has a stunning look.

    The Will Ferrell comedy engine is running on empty in Step Brothers.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    The contrast of the naive assurance of youth with the confusion and ambiguity of adulthood is sweet but simplistic and the wandering script hasn't much else to offer.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Though a hypnotically beautiful film, it's dramatically listless and dull, and completely lacking in passion.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Director Wayne Wang stumbles through the awkward script without finding its shape or its tone, steering it toward maturity while the script falls back into slapstick sports gags and adolescent social politics.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Too bad the film, which Kennedy spun from a stand-up skit, remains as blissfully unaware of its possibilities as B-Rad is of his absurdity.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Splashy and sweetly romantic, if hopelessly unimaginative.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    For an ostensibly personal film, this plodding portrait of the self-involved flailing for meaning in a mercenary world has little of Soderbergh's insight, empathy or generous personality.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It feels like a peek into the closet of a pedophile and it's genuinely discomforting.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Think of it as a buffet of romantic comedy comfort food: the good old American standbys complemented by bland international dishes.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    There's no conviction among these self-involved folks who sidestep commitment with a quip and a grin.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Scott, whose sensitive turn as a priest inspired by Ralph's conviction and commitment gives the film a touch of grace at the cost of revealing McGowan's drab direction of every other actor.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    21
    A thoroughly ordinary drama of temptation, dubious redemption and easy revenge.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Offers precious little inspiration, and the only irony it manages is surely unintended.
