    The film quickly turns unintentionally, and unrelentingly, awkward.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A flat-out cynical attempt to launch a new Lethal Weapon-like franchise.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    An unintentional high-tech hoot.

    Envy makes a pretty entertaining three-minute trailer. If only they'd left it at that.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Hobbled by a laughably bad script and a uniformly uncharismatic cast.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Maybe if there was something going with the dialogue - snappy Chandlerisms, say, or even just sentences that made sense - the fussy digital artifice of The Spirit wouldn't seem so, well, dispiriting.

    Parents in a masochistic mood can compound the headache-inducing experience by paying extra for the 3-D version.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Profoundly knuckleheaded.

    13 Ghosts is the type of project that all parties concerned will have to live down for the rest of their lives.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    This unabashedly stupid comedy is, well, unabashedly stupid.
    • 29 Metascore

    Trapped between edgy art flick and exploitation psychothriller, The Quiet manages to be neither, and manages to be pretty awful in the bargain.

    Scary Movie 2 has something for potheads and the potty-mouthed alike. Anyone looking for a true sequel, however, will be disappointed.

    Nicely timed to cash in on the Ebola panic, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero - the prequel to the gross-out franchise about a lethal flesh-eating virus and its party-hardy victims - isn't going to do much for the tourism trade in the Dominican Republic.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Although there are several truly jolting scares, there's also an abundance of hackneyed dialogue and more silly satanic business than you can shake a severed limb at.

    • 38 Steven Rea
    It's too gauzy, and - with its Ron Bass script - too goopy by half.

    I could make a joke here about the new Pokemon movie.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Cage appears as a knight of the Crusades, slogging across the continents, slaying infidels and unbelievers and anyone else who gets in his way. There isn't a minute when it looks like he's having fun.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A bubble-brained comedy with as much bearing on the real world as a Pokemon cartoon.

    Catwoman, which talks about the "duality" inside all women (wild vs. docile, rapacious vs. cuddly), does have its guilty pleasures. Most of these come courtesy of ice queen Stone.

    What a stupefying thing it is.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Mike Myers, responsible for the picture's one, or possibly two, laughs.

    Basic Instinct 2 is supposed to help Stone show it's possible for a woman to be sexy in her late 40s. But it's Rampling - who is 60 - who comes off as the more provocative and alluring. Stone's purring, snarling, bedroom kink is embarrassing.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A mix of "Alice in Wonderland" and William S. Burroughs, "Psycho" and the psychotic. It's pretty much a squirmy experience all around.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Contrived story lines and an altogether phony resolution erase whatever energy and wit the film displayed, leaving the viewer with an empty, disappointed feeling.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A syrup-thick New Age ghost story of the same sappy stripe and mawkishness as another Costner foray, "Message in a Bottle."
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Director Rob Meltzer, who made the kind-of-amusing meta short "I Am Stamos," directs things in shameless, let's-get-this-thing-over-with style, throwing in some gratuitous topless (female) nudity and allowing the usually amusing Kristen Schaal to let loose with a barrage of potty-mouthisms.

    Guy Ritchie's Revolver premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival two years ago September. That's 26 months on a shelf somewhere, depriving moviegoers the thrill of jaw-droppingly awful Ray Liotta line readings, of bloody shoot-outs, bags of money, cutaways to frosty babes sucking on lollipops, and even a bit of violent anime.

    Ed
    Where does Ed, which is about a baseball-playing chimp and his human sidekick, fit in the pantheon of simian cinema? Way, way down there - on a level with toe lint. [15 Mar 1996, p.5]

    The greatest lacrosse movie of the 21st century - and, unless I'm mistaken, the only lacrosse movie of the 21st century.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 12 Steven Rea
    Reaches breathtaking lows of incoherence, sexism, racial stereotyping, and -- did I say incoherence?
