    Uninspired, sure, but sporadically, spasmodically funny.
  1. Adams, of course, is a peach. Her sparkle requires only minor character adjustment and twinkle recharging from her recent triumph as the old-fashioned modern heroine in "Enchanted."
  2. Forget "Monty Python," You Don't Mess With the Zohan is a circus that never really flies.
  3. RED
    Unfortunately, while RED's stars may have gotten better with age, its many clichés have not.
  4. In the world according to Eurotrip, the Europeans may be a twisted, outdated, ridiculous lot, but what defines them is that unlike the Americans, they've never quite evolved to irony: They treat even the scuzziest habits with dire sincerity.
  5. Romeo & Juliet is a series of spectacular production designs posing as a motion picture.
  6. Consider this a public service announcement: Folks who have a problem with onscreen flesh-hacking - or the fact that franchise stars Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren aren't in the movie all that much - should stay home.
  7. Under Reitman's deanship, Ferrell lets his freak flag fly and Vaughn unlooses a notably funny, light-on-his-feet lunkheadedness.
  8. A horror film that consists of virtually nothing but don't-go-in-the-attic suspense scenes strung together with a reasonable degree of brooding mood and a minimum of logic.
  9. The film is almost deliriously stylish, which helps mask the silliness. But the bellowing music, by John Adams, is infuriatingly intrusive -- which undoes the visual good.
  10. A historical drama as static as it is stately.
  11. A harmless crime caper. It stars Peter Facinelli (Nurse Jackie, the Twilight series), who also wrote the script, shaping the movie to his facile, unlayered charm.

    Murphy gives a reined in performance that, every so often, shows a spark of the ''Shrek''ish donkey within.

    There simply aren’t enough scares to build tension throughout.
  12. It's a veritable Greek chorus of wry therapeutic chatter, the touchy-feely pensées skittering over the stock dualities of adultery and fidelity, lust and devotion, narcissism and intimacy, blah, blah, blah.
  13. A clunky family-therapy soaper.
  14. A Jekyll-and-Hyde teen comedy that sounds like a Pauly Shore reject, but Qualls moves his marionette body around with a true clown's effervescence, and he does rubber-faced parodies of youth cool that are just what youth cool deserves.
  15. Incident at Loch Ness, unfortunately, is a riddle wrapped in a hoax stuffed inside a crock.
  16. A quaint, romanticized rendering.
  17. This cranked-up drama wants it both ways.
  18. Aggressively drab and granular, the movie feels like a late-'80s AIDS passion play given an ill-fitting post-Sept. 11 makeover.
  19. Lee's performance is by far the best thing about The Crow. Unfortunately, he's just good enough to make you wish that the movie had had a whisper of storytelling invention to go along with its showy visual design.
  20. The drama is so minimalist that it's hard to glimpse the man behind the woe.
  21. The sheer, animal idiocy beaming from their faces in the opening credits of The Brothers Solomon creates the film's only moment of uncalculated comic joy.
  22. Croft is one humorless butt-kicker. Excavations in exotic lands have rarely looked so much like items on a to-do list.
  23. Amusing in its very shallowness.
  24. Mostly preposterous, and it has no dramatic center, but the racing scenes hold you in their death-trip grip.
  25. The voices of Liam Neeson -- as the film's narrator -- and his late wife, Richardson, inevitably add to the project's poignance.
  26. That everything gets worked out -- friendship affirmed, jokes made about silly magazine articles on reeling in a boy -- is as sure as the soundtrack's inclusion of a Mandy Moore song.
  27. Dominic West (The Wire) plays a facially mutilated Mob boss as if he's in a broad SNL sketch.
