    More altruistic would be if Williams stopped torturing us with weepy endearments so he could look for that complex clown who used to mug just for laughs.

    As cosmetically sanitized revisions of history go: This is as good as it gets.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It's often a lapsed, under-informed documentary with restagings.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A shameless "Shawshank" redux.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    As insulting as taking the queen to the Olive Garden.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Timely in that it joins an already mammoth list of bad movies about post-hippie static, including the recent "Steal This Movie."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    This is the kind of movie that mistakes heartbreak for being housebroken.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Generates very little heat.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Needs a gritty intervention.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A limp excuse for a coming-of-age flick, more interested in sexploits than sex, more adept at gross-out than girls.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Latest Freddie Prinze Jr. vehicle stalls at on-ramp.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Fails to be the histrionic bubble bath that you want to carry you away.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The best and worst of old school -- retro but stale. Frankenheimer, along with Ben Affleck, donates what cool there is.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    There's the world-alteringly scary possibility that (Leder) might be trying to kill us with a star-studded "After School Special."
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It also goes out of its way to give you a schlocky B-movie vibe by wrangling bait in the form of a bunch of Big-Gulp stupid stock characters - that's a whopping 44 oz. more stupid than you probably were bargaining for.

    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The Patriot makes the Revolutionary War look like super-produced studio footage of the L.A. riots.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    There's more gymnastic yammering in Loving Jezebel than in a season of "Dawson's Creek."
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Implausibly dainty.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Leans so heavily on its stars that their performances are marred by their emptiness.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It's hard not to like a movie like Men of Honor, but it's entirely possible.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The absence of substance, or its banishment, and the director's reliance on allure (in the film's casting and in its look and sound, which features haunting music by Beethoven and Chopin), leave Innocence with the quasi-profound, giggly overreach of a magazine layout come to shameless, shallow life.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    Between fights, the film can't even rely on the luxury of Lindo, Isaiah Washington, Russell Wong, Rottweiler rapper DMX or the scary Henry O as Han's father to make it watchable - the dialogue is wreaking more havoc than Li.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    Brainless thriller.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    Too dumb to realize that the senselessness is viral.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Wesley Morris
    Miserable as it crawls for two eternal hours toward being "life-affirming."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    Wields its Middle America values and moralistic flogging of idiosyncratic lifestyle choices like a flipped bird.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    Wesley Snipes runs around a lot shooting people in plotless film.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    It's a tale of two missused Academy Award winners trying to justify their participation in a moribund, noisome redux of any disposable prison movie you care to remember by lobbing Oscar clips at each other.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    As movies about relic sex machines go, this one lacks mojo.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    Too screwy to be really funny.
