    Burger is so respectful of the trio that he never gets under their skin. Apart from the generosity of strangers who pay tribute to the soldiers with little acts of kindness, you get the same generic observations of any road movie.

    Think of it as a buffet of romantic comedy comfort food: the good old American standbys complemented by bland international dishes.

    Campbell fans will get a kick out of it. The rest of the world will likely find this spoof a little too insular and indulgent.

    Herman's intentions are admirable, but his results are unsettling in the worst ways.

    Director Bill Duke may believe the message but he never invests himself in the characters or their story, which becomes an illustrated lesson with reflective interludes and comic relief.

    If only Outlander was as fun as the premise makes it sound on paper.

    Willis and Breslin are stuck in a charmless, predictable picture they can't escape.
    • 45 Metascore

    Drowns promising ideas in a sea of missed details and unconvincing motivations.
    • 37 Metascore

    It simply isn't that funny or clever. For a comedy, that's about the worst that could happen

    Burns' trite talk and familiar romantic conflicts doesn't do any of the characters any favors. Everyone comes off flat and forced, with one notable and lovely exception: Dawson.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    All the jazzy effects and jumpy editing merely move us quicker to an otherwise predetermined tragedy.

    Von Trier is far more hypocritical than his straw-figure characters, and he's simply too cynical and insincere to be provocative.

    This vampire story is as soulless as they get.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    The film is a shapeless mess and about as convincing as a cartoon, the usual mix of slapstick, doofus humor and raunchy sex jokes lacking even the bite or attitude to make it adventurous.

    See "Freaky Friday" for convincing cross-generational female bonding. Despite it's elegant style and uptown milieu, this film is a cheap imitation.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    For a film so intent on the rules of engagement, this is hardly engaging drama.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    At its best, it is self-effacing fun.But the cartoonish approach takes its toll: The random twists and contrived showdowns devolve into just so much abstract business, too silly to take seriously and too unmotivated to make sense.

    At its best when exploring grieving and loss and anger, but Shear turns it into spiritual shock treatment.

    I can imagine the pitch meeting: "It's 'Kramer vs. Kramer' meets 'Forrest Gump.' No, wait, 'Rainman' has a baby!"

    Between Stallone's soap opera of a script and Renny Harlin's speed-obsessed visuals, we're never really shown much more than fast cars and obsessed drivers.

    For all the hot air expended, this film ends up all smoke and no heat.

    It wants to be a "Carrie" with a modern-day "Frankenstein" twist, but it lacks the smarts behind the weirdness.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    Feels like nothing less than Dana Carvey's desperate bid for his own "Austin Powers"-like franchise, but with a harmless humor far less crude. Carvey favors whoopee cushion punch lines to toilet gags and references to big butts over sexual double-entendres.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    By the film's interminable, unforgivably embarrassing third act it sinks in a sticky swamp of sentimentality.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    Prinze and Forlani coast on charisma alone, but even their charms can't coax magic from the prosaic dialogue and romantic clichés that clog this listless comedy.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    More than painful to behold, it's simply insincere in a film determined to undermine gay stereotypes.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    The special effects display is so lacking in imagination it turns into so much noise, just a flashy distraction from the stiff, stock cliches of the by-the-numbers script.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    Resembles nothing more than an overstuffed, undernourished "Brady Bunch" episode, only not as funny.

    Time travelers, hobbits, ghosts? Those I can buy. The impossibly quaint world of small-town innocence and Hollywood harmlessness in Win a Date With Tad Hamilton? Now that demands a serious suspension of disbelief.

    Ashton Kutcher wants to be taken seriously so badly it hurts. So does this metaphysical mess of a movie, a pseudo time-travel drama so complicated it takes more than half an hour just to establish the gimmick. And a gimmick it is.
