    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Fat Albert's originality is lost on the big screen.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Its one saving grace is Godzilla himself, the James Bond of giant monsters.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It doesn't leave you much to hold on to in a comedy about apathy that can't even muster the energy to care.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    This well-meaning mistake gets lost in the metaphors.
    • 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.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    The film lacks the nerve for any genuinely nasty fun or comic bite.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Fails to generate the elementary visceral thrills we've come to expect from science-fiction thrillers, let alone a compelling human drama.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It plays like a big-budget, after-school special with a generous cast, who at times lift the material from its well-meaning clunkiness.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    A canny but hollow pastiche.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    A tired tale that never comes to life.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Like shave ice without the topping, this cinematic snow cone is as innocuous as it is flavorless.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Many will find Griffin profane, sexist and decidedly offensive. Many more will find his raunchy insights inspired, his body language hilarious and his gift for mimicry and caricature worth the entire show.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    An uninvolving film.
    • 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.

    Weaver was half-heartedly pushed as an underdog Oscar choice. If the film was worthy of her performance, Weaver may have had a shot.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Ball's snide humor and cynical arrogance undercut his message at every turn.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    The ploddingly literal screenplay by John Logan doesn't help matters.
    • 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.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    First-time director Billie Woodruff, a music video veteran, busts his moves in the dance scenes while the movie throbs to the beat of the wall-to-wall soundtrack.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    At least Lin's local color make the idiocy fun to watch.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    A good-faith effort, if not completely successful.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Writer/director Jordan Roberts aims for heartwarming drama and settles for tepid entertainment.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    It all feels false and calculated, an overearnest attempt to find old-fashioned romantic innocence in the modern world by someone too jaded to believe.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    When the spectacle turns ridiculous, the movie just becomes another big-screen video game.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    There's just no juice to this thing, merely a bunch of fitfully funny gags and a climactic football match that, under Skolnick's direction, fails to show us why the Europeans find this so exciting.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    Farce is a genre best served with building momentum and crack timing. This lazily paced piece seems more concerned with winking at the audience and putting quotations around the performances than anything so crass as playing this farce for laughs.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    You'd hope God would think bigger for His divine intervention in American politics.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    A slick, cynical, nasty piece of heist-film plotting that hides its more obvious logical gaps in techno-babble and distracting spectacles of wanton violence and big explosions.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Sean Axmaker
    This half-baked production sat on Miramax's shelf for a couple of years. It's no more done now than then, merely more stale.
    • 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.
