    This film marks for Jon Voigt a concerted effort to unseat Christopher Walken in the competition for the Czarship of sneering, wheezing, Machiavellian, all-around weird guys. He spends much of his time standing around making a face like Beavis does when he's really freaked out.

    This movie is a 21st century take on the tired switched-persons genre, with predictable and obvious gag-inducing results.
  1. Even by Hollywood sequel standards, this is lazily conceived, cynically recycled stuff.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The wackiness that unfolds is boring, ridiculous and, to most, offensive.
  2. Bubble is among his (Soderbergh) worst films. What in the world was he thinking with this?
    • 38 Metascore

    It is impossible to say whether the premise or its execution is more fatal in "Death to Smoochy." One would expect something greater out of the talents assembled.
  3. Veers between flaccid slapstick and mean-spirited vulgarity.
  4. Clearly, Gomorrah is supposed to represent the best of today’s European cinema...and if this is the best, I would hate to imagine the worst! Gomorrah is a boring mess focusing on how the mob in today’s Naples has its tentacles stretched far and wide
  5. The worst sin of omission in Secret Window is the removal of the fact that Rainey had actually plagiarized in the past. In the story, this is critical because it is the source of Rainey’s guilt -– and arguably the reason for his success.
  6. The kind of movie where you shout advice at the characters on screen, because we have so much more information than they do.
  7. Has a terrible air of been-there/done-that.

    The kind of film that's too romantic for younger viewers and too redundant for young teens. For both sets, the laughs come infrequent (if at all), no thanks to Lohan giving another sub par performance.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Too bad Guy Pearce who plays Kendall, the obvious villain, couldn't do the same thing. His awful performance here will almost make you forget he was "Memento" and "L.A. Confidential."
  8. Tomorrow Never Dies, like the commercial marketing assault the Bond cast has been involved in, is a hollow experience that's egregiously trumped up by its high energy glitz and gimmickry. Somewhere, in their rush to amaze and thrill, the filmmakers forgot about Bond, the man.
  9. Mrs. Doubtfire is overlong, barely funny, and a surprisingly bitter movie especially for a film aimed at children.
    • 32 Metascore

    This is the sort of film that would drive Miss Daisy to upchuck at the shenanigans of its saintly, cardboard characters and its bizarre, rose-colored depiction of U.S. race relations.
  10. RV
    The recreational vehicle has a long and storied tradition in American cinema, from "Damnation Alley" to "Lost in America" to "Stripes." Sadly, RV shares little of its namesake' nationwide appeal.
  11. The kind of a moron movie, which is built to be watched by people who haven’t even seen the other nine.
  12. Here’s a would-be horror film that contains not one ounce of professional pride in its making, not one shred of technical competence. This is one of the worst films of recent times.
  13. Mathew Broderick is likeable enough as the gizmo and gadget-toting cartoon hero in-the-flesh, but the plot, to which the FX wizardry is strung to, is in serious need of a tune up.
  14. By far the most appallingly cretinous picture in which Keaton has ever appeared.
    • 54 Metascore

    Neither a stimulating satire nor a serious exposure of the operations of the finance industry.
    • 36 Metascore

    For devotees of the series, the gore is still there and the traps are just as weird as they were in the other entries but for the rest of us, your mind will forget it the second the end credits roll.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Sadly, everything is predictable, which is to the detriment of the mostly fine, young talent that appears in this ineffective retread.
  15. It seems as if every possible cliche and story twist from any seafaring picture of the past 80 years made its way into this flick.
  16. To its credit, the film's costume design is stunning. But unless you have a kimono fetish, there's no reason to pay a good dollar (or a yen, for that matter) on this junk.
  17. After almost twenty five years, the Halloween series has been reduced to a false alarm. ...the characters are so devoid of human feeling they accomplish the task of making us not wish they were dead, but just gone.
  18. I can't really remember the last time I saw a movie with this much biting satire and brilliance that was utterly excruciating half the time.
  19. The jokes are so tired and irritating in the film, I found myself anticipating the funny gags from the trailers because those were the only ones that were remotely humorous. In fact, I only laughed three times in the whole picture.
  20. It isn't as if any of the actors do an especially bad job or anything – Fox is capable enough as the lead, and Whitley and Wilson especially carry themselves quite well – but you can't help asking yourself, what's the point? Are there that many more broad topics in need of shallow examination by a Hollywood studio picture?
