    There's nothing Disneyesque about this bomb except the forced levity of its musical score.
    • 44 Metascore

    What this arid and arty exercise offers is the opportunity for a bunch of actors, many of them tethered to TV series, to deliver theatrical monologues pulsing with misogyny and narcissism. It's like second-rate Neil Labute.

    • 50 Steven Rea
    Feels thoroughly canned.

    Where Mike Figgis' film, with Nicolas Cage and Elisabeth Shue, bore deeply and darkly into emotional territory, The Center of the World turns out to be just as fake as its setting.

    A creaky, cliched, feel-good family drama about learning to stop and smell the roses - and planting a vegetable garden while you're at it - Uncle Nino is shameless, sappy fare.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Cute, cloying and catastrophically predictable.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The script is boilerplate, the wit pretty much witless.
    • 44 Metascore

    Dizzyingly incoherent and subversively surreal, this sophomore effort from the man who made the great, strange "Donnie Darko" is certain to have its fans. I'm not going to be one of them.

    Loaded with careening car chases and rooftop runs, glass-shattering shootouts and exploding fireballs, Killer Elite offers more than enough to keep action junkies happy.
    • 43 Metascore

    Think Jerry Lewis doing Eminem, or maybe it's Eminem doing Jerry Lewis (or maybe it's Pauly Shore doing Vanilla Ice), and you've got B-Rad.

    In Jersey Girl, Kevin Smith wears his heart on his sleeve - and on his pants, socks, boxers and backward-facing baseball cap.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A noisy, not particularly charming collection of skits and skirmishes.

    By the end of Machine Gun Preacher, its title character has become a cartoon.
    • 43 Metascore

    Does the world really need another movie about a married guy wandering blindly into an affair, or the married gal who can't decide whether to remain faithful or fool around?
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    To say that The Grace Card piles it on is an understatement of profound dimensions.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Doesn't take itself seriously, and that's a good thing.

    The problem with NATM:BOTS is that Stiller, Adams, and company seem to be pretending that they're having fun, too.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Kilcher is lovely. But sadly, Ka'iulani is a perfunctory biopic of the sort one might encounter on television during Women's History Month.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Knowing has about a half-dozen screenwriter credits, which may explain why scenes crash up against one another - smart, stupid, far-fetched, compelling. And the trouble is that Cage walks (or runs) through them all, treating each with the same level of intensely goofy seriousness.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Elegiac and corny and not really convincing on any level (especially when it comes to its treatment of women - be they hookers, or waitresses, or girls on the town), Stand Up Guys nonetheless holds some fascination just for the off-the-charts affectedness of Pacino's performance.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Just about the only folks likely to find this humdrum hybrid of "Mission: Impossible" and "The Wind in the Willows" worthy for consideration are non-discriminating pip-squeaks.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Chappie has a nothing-to-lose Roger Cormanesque quality about it, low on budget (except for the CGI robots) and low on meaning, but full of high-velocity chases, helicopter pursuits, and weapons blasting around empty warehouses marred by graffiti and trash.

    Owen is all right as the harried husband whose relationship at home has turned frosty, but the essential heat between him and Aniston is missing. The actress succeeds in shedding her "Friends" persona, but there's something missing here, especially as things get knottier.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The offbeat comedy is not entirely devoid of charm, but its derivativeness is almost embarrassing.
    • 40 Metascore

    A bummer.

    Shaquille O'Neal and Dr. Phil open Scary Movie 4 with an achingly unfunny couple of minutes of severed limbs and errant hoop shots.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Cold and stylish, slick and violent.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Catastrophically overdone.

    As for Kunis, she gets to wear some out-of-this-world couture, and gets to make her entrance at a marriage ceremony on a floating dais, kind of like Katy Perry at the Super Bowl.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    From its jungle forays to its waterfall tumbles to its deadly spider bites - is entirely, utterly unoriginal.
