    Veronica Guerin hardly trusts you to follow its story, opening with the murder, then a series of titles that explain what's to follow.

    The Treatment fails to do anything interesting with Jake.

    As films about the young and the horny go, I preferred the smarter approach director Jeffrey Blitz takes in "Rocket Science."

    A defective poker comedy where the poker is a lot more interesting than the people playing it.

    It's hard to care about people this generic - even when they're naked.

    Is a truly political stoner movie even possible? The entire point of getting high is to take some of the sting out of life. The movie goes after easy targets and goes soft on the harder issues.

    The movie has embarrassingly limited ideas about both the sexes and sex. Like Sandra Bullock’s career woman in “The Proposal,’’ Abby appears to have never heard of intercourse, much less experienced it.

    Janet McTeer provides a little ham to the role of a woman who dresses up her dogs because she misses her dead twin sons. But there's not nearly enough of her. Nor is there enough legitimate suspense.

    What the writer and director, Lance Daly, means as some kind of transporting urban adventure for them is a disenchanting slog for us.
    • 63 Metascore

    If it's difficult to find straight laughs in a colorblind prison movie (It's difficult enough to find a colorblind prison movie), finding straight laughs in a black one is almost impossible.

    The crime is appallingly petty. But occasionally the friction between two actors' idiocy will produce a comic spark.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Not the sweaty midnight stroll through the garden of carnal delights that its title wants you to believe.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The movie has a jolly, half-remembered quality, as though it were adapted from a particularly rose-colored memoir.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    You want the movie to stir your soul, push your intellect, or at the very least, break your heart. But it's such a repetitive and thinly constructed piece of filmmaking that the scope and complexity of Sampedro's case are turned to porridge.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    This is neither a psychological thriller nor an erotic one, so any interest in the story is purely the work of its stars.

    Bring Wet-Naps to The Devil's Double. It's coated and fried in the same batter KFC uses for Extra Crispy chicken. The movie might be greasier, actually.

    The new remake of Arthur is a thin copy of the 1981 original. But it has a few things going for it.
    • 33 Metascore

    This is a manic hour and a half. It's full of pushy, grabby, assertive, borderline obnoxious characters, not all of whom went to Harvard.

    Whether this movie works for you largely depends on whether you're willing to work for it. To which I say: Bring your gym clothes.
    • 56 Metascore

    Everybody in the movie is so tightly wound that Walters seems a model of actorly limberness. She cuts through the movie with speed and mannish, zany wit.
    • 34 Metascore

    Feels like an interminable pilot for a show to fill that deadly 8:30 slot between "Friends" and "Will and Grace."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The movie tries to do for forearms what the loosely similar science-fiction romance "The Adjustment Bureau'' attempted for men's hats: make them chic.
    • 45 Metascore

    The early dilemma in "Rise of the Silver Surfer " is this: Save the world or marry Jessica Alba . Your conscience says, "Save the world." But the Maxim reader in you knows better.

    Rendition is a reminder that, in the wrong hands, political outrage can be a slog.
    • 40 Metascore

    "Wolverine" feels enslaved to its many masters - Marvel Comics, Hollywood, and the young men who devour their products - never sidestepping the déjà vu it inspires.

    The moviemaking is proficient, if unremarkable. I like the idea of an Elizabethan action movie apparently more than I enjoy watching one.

    In the end, it's hard to see a real reason for the movie's existence. We already have Muppets.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The message is clear almost immediately: charity not vanity.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A righteous but wrongheaded thriller, chokes on its well-meant outrage and leaves a moth-eaten plot and handful of nonsense characters on its way to a dopey finish.
