    A forced-march comedy.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Full of kerplunkingly unfunny jokes and ex-"Saturday Night Live" cast members turning up to do shtick.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    An astoundingly senseless thriller.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Connoisseurs of giant, gnarled chunks of charred flesh, rejoice! There's plenty of it -- or stuff resembling it -- in the slasher-fest convergence of two killer franchises.

    How to count the ways that Be Cool isn't? For one thing, it looks terrible: grainy, ill-lit, edited with blunt, rusty shears.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    The cast, especially The Game, does a fairly good job with this meager material, but it's like trying to make chateaubriand out of Spam.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    If Matthew Weiner's Are You Here is good for anything, it's to illustrate how the themes and conflicts he has worked out with such depth and dexterity in all these seasons of "Mad Men" can go terribly amiss with the wrong actors, wrong backdrop, wrong tone, wrong time.

    • 25 Steven Rea
    The whole affair has a painfully self-conscious, self-referential air. Jokes land with a thud, and so, alas, does Rocky, who seems to have forgotten how to fly.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A riotously awful biopic rife with stereotypes and boxing movie cliches, Against the Ropes represents -- among other things -- a woeful turn in its star's career.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    This startlingly lame tale about a young upstart challenging a veteran leader of the pack doesn't update the genre, it simply recasts it.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    This low-budget, high-gore sequel can be effectively frightening at times, and just plain boring, too. The suspense builds, the blood gushes, the momentum dissipates. It's an unsatisfying mix.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Criminal, with its criminally lazy title, is mostly Costner's to growl and scowl his way through.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    This heavy-handed muddle of a cop thriller is just impossibly bad.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    "The Godfather" without Brando, "GoodFellas" without Scorsese, "The Sopranos" without Gandolfini - 10th & Wolf is all that, and less.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    8 1/2 Women is a collage-y, self-reflexive sort of film that is designed to shock but more often just annoys.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Serena is one long eye-roll of calamities and corn.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    The sort of generic crime thriller - stick-figure characters, pointless muddle of plot, people entering and exiting SUVs and Lear jets with a sense of urgency - that feels like it could drag on forever, and drag us down into a purgatory of stupefaction with it.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Painfully cute drama.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Domino is less a movie than a hyperkinetic slide show - presented during a nuclear attack.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    An embarassingly unfunny, stumblebum adaptation of Toby Young's memoir.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Ostensibly a comedy, and a feeble and innocuous one at that, Post Grad is one of those what-were-they-thinking?
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Instead of paying homage to these creepy creatures of bygone Hollywood, Sommers seems to be unwittingly lampooning them. The first few minutes of Van Helsing, shot in black and white, look like outtakes from Mel Brooks' gagfest "Young Frankenstein."
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    While this cheesy, heavy-metal melange of horror, space hooey and cowboy shoot-'em-ups isn't exactly dull, it isn't anything to write home about either.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 0 Steven Rea
    Has to be among the worst movies ever made.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A mercifully fleet and lamentably uninteresting adaptation of the DC Comic about a war-weary Confederate soldier.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Murderously unfunny.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Hands-down the most nightmarishly awful film of the year.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Uptown Girls gives the impression that everyone behind the camera just threw up their hands in helpless resignation.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A stale and stupid thriller.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    The ads for The Sweetest Thing promise that if you loved "There's Something About Mary" and "My Best Friend's Wedding," then you can't miss this latest Cameron Diaz vehicle. Well, miss it.
