    But all the devices and upgrades do little to bring the poetry's meaning into clearer and more relevant focus for today's audiences.

    Fossilized script spoils effects.

    Consider The Other Sister emotional quicksand. [26 February 1999, Life, p.5E]

    But for all the fancy-schmancy effects (budget: $90 million-plus), the vision of a hypercongested metropolis is not much more sophisticated than an episode of "The Jetsons." [9 May 1997]

    • 32 Metascore

    A blah romantic comedy that has the bad taste to force the heavenly Ashley Judd into being an insecure, date-desperate, quirky career gal.
    • 26 Metascore

    Until it coughs up a ridiculously convoluted explanation of why an isolated town in Colorado suddenly goes deader than a weekday matinee of "The Postman," Phantoms delivers the shivers.

    There's some heavy-duty Oedipal stuff going on underneath all the running gags about Hooters restaurants. [25 June 1999, Life, p.8E]

    • 25 Metascore

    A weak whinny of a horse opera tailor-made for those who can't quite locate "Young Guns" or "The Long Riders" in their video store.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Susan Wloszczyna
    Edited like the world's most expensive car ad. The screen opens and closes like a nervous accordion, and the action shifts speeds like crazy.
    • 70 Metascore

    While the attractive cast is willing, the translation into '90s teen culture is weak -- like a clueless adult's notion of cool.
    • 53 Metascore

    The story isn't a grabber.

    As a piece of filmmaking, Torn is slightly above TV-movie quality.

    Rio 2 has exhausted its limited amount of charm. Most regrettably, Rita Moreno appears in her first movie in eight years as Jewel’s overbearing Aunt Mimi but is barely allowed to make an impression.

    Still, I laughed — enough to feel mortified at myself.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Susan Wloszczyna
    The nasty, overlong and undisciplined sourball of a sex farce about a mother-daughter con team will nonetheless satisfy bigenerational libidinous fantasies.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Susan Wloszczyna
    This movie-within-a-movie action-comedy spoof is a too long, too loud tease as it toys with the Schwarzen-dude's well-toned cinematic image. [18 Jun 1993, p.1D]

    If Nancy Meyers ever decided to dabble in gothic romance, it probably would turn out to be something like The Face of Love.

    Seeing gawky Charlie Korsmo, one-time movie moppet, as a superbrain whose introduction to alcohol leads him to do a rip-roaring rendition of Guns N' Roses' Paradise City, is worth a smile or two. But even that can't save [the] film.

    Just like the popular (and more graphically violent) video game it's spun from, kung-fooy and kartoony Kombat shoves plot and personality aside to focus on action cloaked in mystic mumbo-jumbo and gloomy mock-gothic graphics. [21 Aug 1995 Pg. 03.D]

    The cheesy production values won't grab anyone. When Bryan-Brian aren't schmoozing, there's not much to look at. It's anyone's guess whether this sequel will be as big a hit on tape. But it'll end up on the shelf soon enough. [10 May 1991, p.2D]

    While Basinger admirably invests her role with deep passion and looks splendid in her Kenya khakis, the true story she stars in is disappointingly tame and dramatically inert.

    The distractions are more satisfying than the romantic main course. [23 April 1999, Life, p.8E]

    Warm, squishy and manipulative, like being slobbered on by a mongrel pup that's begging for more Snausages.[03 Jun 1994]

    It’s enough to make H.G. Wells roll his eyes as he rolls in his grave.
    • 75 Metascore

    I might have tolerated the film much more with the sound off. With the volume on, this movie feels like a mucho-macho Saturday morning cartoon—specifically Bugs Bunny toying with his eternal pursuer, Elmer Fudd.

    As funny as it can be, this underdawg comedy isn't much more than Sandler's golf-oriented "Happy Gilmore" with a Cajun accent. [6 November 1998, p. 10E]

    It's so predictable, you can set your watch to when the bulimic will sneak away to the bathroom.

    Crave, a creepy and deliberately paced thriller that is effective in its unpleasantness.
    • 45 Metascore

    But the best moments are in the trailer (the squirting skunk, the asparagus in the teeth), and they are funnier in short doses than lazily strung together. [10 Nov 1995 Pg. 01.D]

    The original was a Midol moment, this is a Prozac exercise. [12 March 1999, Life, p.8E]
