    This is many lousy movies for the price of one.

    It’s unclear what Amy Adams did to deserve Leap Year, but all that’s missing from the movie is a set of jailhouse bars over her scenes.

    It’s like Bob Fosse night at the martial-arts studio. Most of the killing here is done with bladed throwing stars that, like the ninjas themselves, arrive from nowhere. They appear to have been used to edit the film as well.

    It’s network television drama, starring actors best known for their TV work and full of the petty gripes and mild worries of characters who really have nothing compelling to worry about.

    Neither (Bullock/Reynolds) brings out anything good in the other, and watching them try hurts the eyes, the tummy, and the libido.

    Blithely inept.

    Gabizon never establishes a consistent tone or point of view. Instead, we hop from one episode to the next, with no momentum and no reason to care about these people.

    House of D, is like the kind of sticky greeting card you'd find on CBS some Sunday nights.

    For Hilton haters, the stupid and grotesque remake of House of Wax will only stoke their schadenfreude.

    The horrible anticipation he [Aja] builds is derailed by a gimmick that makes the twist in, say, ''Fight Club" seem perfectly logical. To say more would be to ruin the movie, and why should I do that when its own makers have done it for you?

    Lila is all come-ons without any charm.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    Offers cliches instead of chills.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    A one-trick action thriller that feels like a poor cousin of an episode of ''24." Call it ''12."

    Just Like Heaven suggests that a post-coma Elizabeth might understand what life is truly all about. Of course, if being alive means having to live in this movie, maybe she was better off the way she was.

    An erotic thriller. It is also an Atom Egoyan picture, which means any claims either to actual eroticism or conventional thrills are theoretical at best.

    Finding Home is well meant and earnest but is stretched to almost twice what would have been a comfortable length.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    Rarely is a movie audience asked to put up with so much noise for such a thankless payoff.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    It's actually a pretty lousy thriller.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    The movie treats trysting as comedy and yet is stingy with the laughs.
    • 49 Metascore

    Franco can be exhilarating in movies -- tremulous, unhinged, a little wild. Here his jaw never stops quivering and his eyes stay welled up, advertising a breakdown that never comes. Not that Myles has a presence a man would fall apart over. She's too professional to drive anybody crazy.

    This is an inept and unsubtle romantic fantasy about how black people and white people don't mix.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    An overblown urban crime drama that should be a lot better than it is.

    The strip is now a cartoonish sitcom pretending to be a romantic comedy about a drama queen and his adventures in lust. The movie might have gotten away with it, were it interested in romance or comedy.

    Unofficially, You, Me and Dupree is a companion piece to last summer's "Wedding Crashers," a movie whose lunacy is desperately needed this summer.

    Perhaps Employee of the Month, which was typed then directed by Greg Coolidge, is unfolding in the key of satire. But you'd have to be a dog to hear it.

    The most popular facial expression for victims in The Grudge 2 is something I'd like to call "deep befuddlement." This time "deep befuddlement" goes double for paying customers.

    A slick but dull new shoot- ' em-up from Jamaica, doesn't penetrate the mysteries of high-rolling, high-risk thug life.

    The real problem with Harsh Times is Jim himself. Bale goes at the part with his usual intensity, but the character still seems like a psycho without psychology or a soul.

    Watching the movie made me long for the big , risky ideas and entertainingly fearless filmmaking in David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees " and Spike Jonze's "Adaptation ," which Kaufman wrote. Both were similarly conceptual escapades, but they let it all hang out.

    Creaky, earnest melodrama.
