    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Collapses under its own contempt.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Has a silly, insouciant glamour often employed to sell hair conditioners and perfume.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    It's handsome filmmaking that doesn't surface until the final 25 minutes during which Stevo and company's sense of marginalization achieves the palpable, emotional import that's more expressive than anything its characters' have to bitch about.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A mixed bag with the promise of a better sequel.
    • 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.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The punch line isn't that funny.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A movie drunk on its very existence, one that misses more frequently than it hits and couldn't care less.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Szabo doesn't bring the film to its senses until just past the halfway point.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A satire whose dead aim stops wounding - and starts making - stereotypes of white middle-classness.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Of course, there's little else of interest about Pokemon beyond the consumption factor. Buy more.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    As involved as Crudup and Connelly beseech you to be with this story, their very youthfulness, their nagging lack of adulthood, keeps the film from being anything more credible than a tight grad-school tryst.
    • 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.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    In another universe - though it is difficult to imagine which one - Garry Shandling might be sexy.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Works more as an object of pop curiosity than as a work of popular entertainment.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    At its savviest, Scream 3 is a cheeky conceptual conceit, cheaply executed for the sake of achieving trilogy status. Instead, it's like a carnival that's been in town a week too long.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    An enthralling special-effects tour de force with a lover's nook.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Most of American Pimp feels like you've been slipped a Mickey.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    Leave it to Ron Howard to turn a plaintive Dr. Seuss ditty into a C-grade Tim Burton psychodrama.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    What begins as unassumingly dull wanders into disarming chaos.
    • 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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    A proudly unsophisticated demonstration of racial progress.
    • 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    As insulting as taking the queen to the Olive Garden.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Crime-by numbers-cop drama.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    As innocuous as the love songs on its soundtrack.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A laughably disconnected hostage drama that rails against the perceived nightmare of inner-city public schools.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    There's more gymnastic yammering in Loving Jezebel than in a season of "Dawson's Creek."
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Determined to try your patience, asking you to fall in love with it.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A lazy, torpid piece of animated tourism.
