    Not as cool as the first.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It wobbles between a conventionally quirky lighthearted goof and an oddball farce in which character is sacrificed for sight gags.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Deyfus' haphazard filmmaking dissipates a potentially fascinating mystery into one long diversion.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    For all the color and lively music, it's an overlong, messy labor of love built on a sense of personal betrayal that rings hollow.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    For all of its admirable intentions, the awkward melding of movie-of-the-week tragedy, non-denominational salvation drama and teen sex comedy mistakes banality for conviction.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    At least Lin's local color make the idiocy fun to watch.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    The film lacks the nerve for any genuinely nasty fun or comic bite.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Ben Stiller provides a jolt of personality as a past victim who rouses himself from exile, but otherwise Todd Phillips' fitfully funny script never delivers the crude creativity or the raw energy that feeds this genre of proudly crass male-centric comedies.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    When Plympton's freak flag flies, Hair High delivers the same whacked-out weirdness of his shorts. The rest of the film simply stretches out the simple premise and marks time between his ideas.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Smokin' Aces isn't a story, it's a premise with a madhouse of characters flung into a collision course that ends at the same finish line.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    There's no conviction among these self-involved folks who sidestep commitment with a quip and a grin.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Low octane comedy running on fumes.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    This larger-than-life cartoon of a trained dog has more character than the two-legged co-stars.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Diverting, at times even visually impressive, but has neither the spirit or style of "Spider-Man" nor the ambition of "X-Men."
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    You'd hope God would think bigger for His divine intervention in American politics.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Bland and boring.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It's kind of like "Tootsie," only without the drag. Or the class. Or the laughs.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    The best scenes belong to Tucker and director Brett Ratner keys in to his timing, whether it's a Chinese twist on "Who's on First" or a seduction scene in which Tucker blurts out every impulse.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Just another low-budget effort from filmmakers who mistake cleverness for smarts.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    CJ7
    Bright, bouncy, kooky and comically tone deaf, CJ7 is the most bizarre kids movie I've ever seen.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Be warned that what looks to be a family comedy pushes its PG-13 rating to the edge with blatant sexual references and creatively crude sexual metaphors.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    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.

    21
    A thoroughly ordinary drama of temptation, dubious redemption and easy revenge.
    • 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.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Sivan makes it all quite beautiful with verdant imagery and tastefully melodramatic direction, but at the cost of emotional and social ambiguities, not to mention living, breathing characters.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    The Will Ferrell comedy engine is running on empty in Step Brothers.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It's all too much and too little: a history lesson in institutional racism that falls into character cliches, a human drama that gets lost in melodramatic detours, a war movie put together by a fan rather than a filmmaker.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    You can feel the debt to Sidney Lumet's '70s studies in police corruption and cop brotherhood, but O'Connor never captures the edge of danger, anger and moral stands being ground up in compromise.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Ball's snide humor and cynical arrogance undercut his message at every turn.
