    Politics aside, Trudell plays like an infomercial for its subject rather than a serious examination of the man and his beliefs.

    There's certainly a good movie to be made about Muslim punk musicians in the US, but this isn't it.

    What's Vincent to do? Will he come out of the closet? Will he lead the swim team to victory at the big match? Will he find happiness with Noemie? Does anybody care?
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    One big cliche.

    Would that somebody had fired Gurwitch before she could have finished Fired!
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The script is obvious and cliched and the action is more disgusting than frightening.

    Marlene Rhein has directed 40 music videos, including ones for Tupac Shakur and Amy Winehouse. Judging by this, her feature debut, she should stick with the music.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Utterly predictable and full of trite dialogue.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Dom DeLuise, as a fruitcake director, and John Waters fave Mink Stole, as Robin's Jewish mother, spice things up, but not enough to make Girl Play worthwhile.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The autobiographical script meanders and the acting never solidifies. Besides, the leads look too old to be in high school - maybe even college.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The story is so contrived and the dialogue so stilted that no amount of talent could save Exist.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Tucker's message is sometimes on target, even if his film isn't.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The dialogue is banal and the acting, especially Wortham's, is unconvincing. Even the sex and nudity, of which there is a lot, grows tiresome after a while.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Little more than a rehash of old news.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Has a split personality. It starts as a comedy but morphs into an icky family melodrama. It should have stuck with the yuks.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Nothing would help make this dud understandable.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The movie, directed by Mick Jackson, leaves no cliché unturned, from the predictable plot to the characters straight out of central casting.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The film's violent finale comes out of nowhere and will leave bewildered viewers wondering if they might have dozed off for a reel or two.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Mostly The Matador romanticizes a brutal tradition that has no place in the 21st century.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The writing, acting and direction are so amateurish that the only thing you'll care about is escaping the theater.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    There are many new Japanese movies that deserve a stateside release. Why this hapless mess beat them out is a question that deserves an answer.
    • 62 Metascore

    Now that even Woody Allen has stopped making "Woody Allen movies," you would think that wannabes would move on, too.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Ohayon doesn't judge Thompson or his customers, but you don't need to be a Harvard-educated psychiatrist to realize that the bunch of them are dirty old men who treat women as commodities.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    There are a few exciting battle sequences and the sets are lavish, but mostly the film meanders aimlessly for more than two hours. No wonder new sword-and-sandal movies are in short supply.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    With so many worthy movies being made in Europe, it's a crime that something as mediocre as Erotic Tales gets a release here.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Makes little attempt to be credible or original. And the acting is poor.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The overall result is superficial and deadly boring.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Silly and pointless film.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Will there be a “Hatchet IV’’? I shudder to think about it.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Proves, if anything, that sappy feel-good movies aren't restricted to Hollywood.
