    Boring.

    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Schmaltzy and contrived.

    Is nothing sacred? In the schizophrenic war epic The War lords, Jet Li, the hunky action hero, cries -- no, make that sobs -- several times. What will his legion of young male fans think?

    Director Ferzan Ozpetek's film doesn't break any new ground; rather, it recycles every cliché about gays in what is essentially an extended soap opera.

    Having root-canal surgery would be less painful than sitting through the martial-arts disaster Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior.

    The praise for this static, overlong, stagebound work is a mystery to me.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work. None of the talking heads is as interesting as Yu thinks they are; and it's difficult to build sympathy for any of them.

    If all terrorists were like these idiots, the US would have nothing to worry about.

    Adams and the school's students and teachers deserve an A-plus, although the film rates a much lower grade. It unfolds lifelessly, as Binzer parades a contingent of talking heads before the camera in what could pass for an infomercial.

    A lightweight French comedy worth watching only for Cecile de France. The gamine actress - decked out in short reddish hair, black tights and a thigh-high mini - is charming as Jessica.

    Arlyck spends more time following himself and his own lefty family than checking up on Sean.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Deadly dull.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    There are a few scares, but not enough to make up for the murky script.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Let the French stick to love stories and leave stupid comedies to Tinseltown.
    • 62 Metascore

    Harper and the film's director, Jeremy Kagan, try valiantly, but they are unable to bring Meir to life or hold viewers' attentions.

    Now that even Woody Allen has stopped making "Woody Allen movies," you would think that wannabes would move on, too.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Maybe being able to look back in time is comforting for Block and company, but what makes him think complete strangers give a damn about his not-especially-interesting family? I certainly don't.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The comedy is without distinction and the conclusion is melodramatic. I must note that ads for the film are misleading because they give no hint of the dark side of The Bubble.

    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Pretty but tedious Euro-pap at its most self-indulgent.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The story lacks focus. The senses blur as wives and ex-wives come and go, and Harry regularly falls off the wagon, only to reform the next day.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Greenwald does nothing with the interviews, basically just posting them, one after the other, with the hope that viewers will do his job for him. The result is one-sided and bone-dry.
    • 60 Metascore

    Something high schoolers might yawn through in history class, but they have no choice. You do.

    Almereyda's muddled Happy Here and Now should have stayed on the shelf - where it's been gathering dust for several years.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Fails to elicit any substantive information from his (Tommy Davis) subjects. And he fails to put their plight into perspective.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A movie more interested in shocking than in entertaining.
    • New York Post
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    A convoluted, pointless thriller that wastes the considerable talent of Max von Sydow.

    If you go to the movies to ogle topless young women, Simon is definitely for you. If, on the other hand, you want something more cerebral with your $10 ticket and overpriced snacks, stay clear of this Dutch melodrama.

    Viewers are left wondering just why they should care about them and the rest of the film's one-dimensional characters.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Sexist, racist humor abounds, with Jews and gays especially taking a beating. I don't always object to non-PC humor -- but I like it to be funny, and here it isn't.

    What they say is superficial. They never really explain why they risk their lives. In the end, Steep plays like a TV infomercial - and who wants to hand over $11 to watch one?
