    In another universe - though it is difficult to imagine which one - Garry Shandling might be sexy.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Turturro tricks you into thinking there's magic realism streaming through this ode to art and commited love - despite there being little magic and not a trace of reality to speak of.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Crammed with such earnest belief in the power of love - even if it happens in the Chicago Zoo - it almost doesn't matter that O'Connor and Loggia have better chemistry than Duchovny and Driver.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    At its best the film serves as a music appreciation class taught by embattled artists whose cloudy livelihoods grow increasingly uncertain with each bittersweet symphony.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    It's the year's funniest, most absurd sight gag.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Aiming to keep it real, the cast of the new dance casserole Center Stage sweats spunk.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    You can see Bobby and Peter Farrelly bent over blowing violently into the sails of this toy boat, trying to get it to move.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Regardless of how cheated out of a full-bodied motion picture you feel, you're still left with the year's sickest bathroom humor.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A proudly unsophisticated demonstration of racial progress.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Most of American Pimp feels like you've been slipped a Mickey.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Collapses under its own contempt.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    What begins as unassumingly dull wanders into disarming chaos.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The director bludgeons us dumb with her genius.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A mixed bag with the promise of a better sequel.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Works more as an object of pop curiosity than as a work of popular entertainment.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Just fascinating in an empty, trendy sort of way
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    It's one of the most beautifully unpleasant movies ever made - its reverse charge being that it is no fun at all.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A satire whose dead aim stops wounding - and starts making - stereotypes of white middle-classness.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The film is obviously a long-form episode of a show better digested in 22-minute segments.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Of course, there's little else of interest about Pokemon beyond the consumption factor. Buy more.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Woody Allen's questionable toe-tapping faux-documentary.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The punch line isn't that funny.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A high-spirited, big-bottomed Polaroid of the comedian in a fat suit.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The World Is Not Enough, like a 19th version of anything, is inanely self-parodic. So much so that one wonders why Austin Powers need have bothered in the first place.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Little Nicky is but a meek gross-out cousin of "The Waterboy."
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Blakeney can't decide if this is a quirky romantic comedy or a quirky mob essay, and you can see the movie thinking itself into a rhythmless hole with cement shoes.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Works as a quixotic study of emotional quirks.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Its finest moments come in sequences such as Alice and Darlene's prison break and the girls' final wrenching plea for freedom.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It feels like a trumped up trifle, disinterested in narrative exercises, using instead technique (cinematography, editing and, omigod, a soundtrack!) to swing moods and heighten reality, then send it crashing to earth.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    An arthritic failure, genuine only when the two outcast lovers' eyes dart toward each other, then retreat.
