    A soggy love story doesn't help this instance of style over substance.

    Fox can't decide if Walk on Water is a terrorist thriller or a gay buddy story, and neither can the viewer.

    If the plot of the Argentine soaper Puzzle seems familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to the story in the French movie "Queen To Play."

    Medina has taken a series of vignettes and fashioned them into a feature film as aimless as Luciano’s life. There’s no buildup or payoff; still, Hendler’s laid-back performance makes Medina’s film worth seeking out.

    Can't overcome the familiar, soapy script.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film is well-constructed, as one would expect from Gondry, but it offers little reason for anyone outside the family circle to care about dear old Tante Suzette.

    Gabizon has a great idea. But he ruins it by devoting too much time to colorful but unnecessary characters.

    Everybody involved in 39 Pounds of Love probably had the best of intentions. But watching the filmmakers scurry about to record every last tear, I couldn't help but feel that this twisted little man was being exploited.

    These were people willing to take chances. Would that Trank had taken chances in telling their stories.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A flawed black comedy about two buddies who open a butcher's shop in a small Danish town.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Uninspired in style, and Joan Allen's narration is dry.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    What could have been a biting dark comedy is, instead, uninspired and generic. The contrived, everybody's-happy finale just makes things worse.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Unfortunately, Angelou's detached and often superfluous narration lessens the film's impact.

    You can't help wondering how prisoners who practiced Vipassana fared as free men.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Debbie, for better or for worse, is the high point of the entertaining but lightweight film, which is better suited to public TV than the big screen. Oh, yes. If anybody should decide to open another beauty school in Kabul, be sure to leave Debbie in Indiana.

    Kids will get off on Bugs! and then go home and have nightmares. Adults who accompany them may have to fight off sleep before they get home.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The writer-director, who goes by the name J Blakeson, keeps the suspense level high for the first hour or so, but he then indulges in a few plot twists that strain credibility.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    My Way is not, as the title might suggest, a Frank Sinatra biopic. No, it's an eye-popping, empty-headed World War II epic made in South Korea.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Has a few things going for it -- a winning performance by Luchini and a small role by Pedro Almodóvar favorite Carmen Maura. But these talented folks can't compensate for a plot that strains credulity and lacks badly needed social bite. Wait for the DVD.

    Priceless provides lightweight, predictable entertainment that will make you yearn for the Tatou of yesteryear.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Dysfunctional families don't come much more messed up than the one in Agnes and His Brothers, a comic drama from Germany.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Has some truly touching and funny moments. But it goes on for too long and bogs down in a surfeit of characters and unnecessary subplots.
    • 75 Metascore

    Will Marcela (wonderful Ana Geislerova) opt for brains or brawn? The answer might surprise you.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Sweet but not especially original.

    Bogdanich's film contends that the bombing of Yugoslavia by NATO in 1999 was the result of blunders by the West, and that the forces supported by the United States in Bosnia and Kosovo are allied with Osama bin Laden.

    The news footage, so powerful on its own, needs no enhancement. The dramatized scenes only slow the film's momentum.

    There are no women or straight men left in Taipei. At least that's the impression left by Formula 17, in which every single person (except for one child) is a gay cutie.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    There's a lot happening here, perhaps too much. At times, the movie threatens to implode under its own weight. At others, it's wickedly funny.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    It loses direction, turning contrived and sentimental. There's even a touch of Frank Capra.
    • 53 Metascore

    Earthwork is best left to TV.
