    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Feels thoroughly canned.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A messy fish-out-of-water gangland romp.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Travolta, a bit portly (or is it starboardly?), phones in his performance from his place in Maine; Vaughn is ice-cool but not especially convincing; the kid is OK, and Polo is a blank.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    At this point in her career, Lopez can clearly bend the universe -- but no amount of bending can make Enough anything more than formulaic.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The real problem isn't with the actors, it's with 1) the source material, a highfalutin romance novel with a clever literary conceit, and 2) LaBute's clumsy, uncomfortable efforts to telescope Byatt's book into a workable movie.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Not even Halle Berry, emerging from the blue Caribbean in an orange two-piece -- can bring this thing to life.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Too cute by half (or maybe three-quarters).
    • 14 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Much of the dialogue is the silliest sort of fantasy mush, and a good deal of the picture appears to have been shot while the lighting guys were out to lunch.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Gimmicky artifice.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Rock Star sinks into a morass of melodrama.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Fuzzy, feel-good movie about baseball, babes and believing in yourself.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Stephen King without the snap, David Lynch without the kink, teen horror without the teen hormones, Darkness Falls falls apart in a crescendo of creepy-crawly hoo-ha. It's more like Darkness Kerplunks.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A by-the-numbers extravanganza that journeys from London to Venice to Siberia to Cambodia without ever really going anywhere.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    An elaborately worked-over opus that's as tarted-up and artificial as Scorsese's '70s classic Mean Streets was gritty and real, Gangs of New York feels like a movie musical without the songs.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's nothing if not predictable.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A woefully thin and pointless musical comedy boasting the no-chemistry coupling of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyonc?
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The real Radio, and the real coach -- seen together in the movie's feel-good epilogue -- deserve better.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    There are, to be sure, some impressive special effects here, and whoever Warner Bros. hires to make the new Superman movie should take notes.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Aspires to the devilish crudity and unfettered social commentary of South Park. But Zwigoff's direction lacks the exaggerated cartoonishness necessary.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Despite its penchant for the crude and lewd, is gooey in ways that have nothing to do with bodily fluids.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Doesn't take itself seriously, and that's a good thing.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    By Twisted's final twist, though, it's all Judd can do to keep a straight face.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    If Taking Lives starts off with a modicum of wit and creepy-crawly scares, it winds up somewhere else altogether: in the cliche-strewn land of preposterous red herrings.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    In Jersey Girl, Kevin Smith wears his heart on his sleeve - and on his pants, socks, boxers and backward-facing baseball cap.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It is a good hour too long, although it does boast Christopher Walken.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Unravels in a series of spooky dream sequences, dopey detective work, and a couple of richly hambone-ian De Niro soliloquies.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    There's nothing original, nor compelling, about Twist.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    This glum and grandiose new King Arthur has little to do with the Camelot monarch we've come to know through books and film.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    From its jungle forays to its waterfall tumbles to its deadly spider bites - is entirely, utterly unoriginal.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Fails to provide one essential ingredient: suspense.
