    Gorgeous, mesmerizing, and stunningly well acted.

    A fine film; as an Ed Norton picture, it's a disappointment.

    The script is an odd take on the Cinderella formula, but Barrymore makes it shine with her relentless charm.

    It is an intense study of the human condition, and man's relationship with God, aka the Big Kahuna.

    (Katja von Garnier's) talent makes this original film exciting and moving, a raucous ride.

    These actresses are always worth seeing in just about anything, as is Tuscany. Together they are able to make up for the meandering plot and lack of dramatic oomph.

    Enough already with the faux documentary!
    • 52 Metascore
    • 80 Ted Gideonse
    The end is predictable after the first five minutes (two, if you're smart), but the film sucks you in all the same.

    • 50 Ted Gideonse
    A flat, cliched film in a flat, cliched genre.

    Spacek is brilliantly funny, slowly transforming Helen from a nervous 60s housewife into a liquored-up one. I could have watched her in the vibrating fat-burner, eyes closed, lazily gripping a martini glass, for hours.

    Jones even manages to save this somewhat tiring film.

    Despite its bizarre intellectual project, Le Pecheur's film is seductive and shockingly sexy.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Ted Gideonse
    Hampered by a silly plot and flat script.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 10 Ted Gideonse
    Hilariously incompetent.
    • 28 Metascore

    The crude humor in Drop Dead Gorgeous does not have a moral point to it. It's just crude.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Ted Gideonse
    As dumb as the film is, the actors escape relatively unscathed.
    • 21 Metascore

    Matthew Lillard of "Scream," flies like his nickname and tries to bring the film some comic relief not already provided by the stultifying stupidity of the script.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 30 Ted Gideonse
    Bad, but not criminally so.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 0 Ted Gideonse
    A disaster: dull, predictable, at times cringe-worthy.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 10 Ted Gideonse
    The dialogue is inane, the acting wooden, and Roger Christian's directing choices are a lesson in sci-fi film cliché.
