  1. Now that even Woody Allen has stopped making "Woody Allen movies," you would think that wannabes would move on, too.
  2. A great-looking but stupefyingly incoherent supernatural thriller adapted from a popular video game that ransacks the entire catalog of horror film tropes for more than two mind-numbing hours.

    If the film is meant to make us feel good about African justice, it does anything but.
  3. The film plays like one long commercial. The music's cool, but you're better off buying the CD.

    Most of the movie's plot becomes obvious before you even meet the brother, 10 minutes into it. Even the sex scenes turn out to be tasteful and tame. You've seen hotter stuff on Oxygen.
  4. There are bachelor and bachelorette parties, as well as much misbehavior, in this glossy and unconvincing little flick, receiving a vanity booking on the way to video.
    • 53 Metascore

    Rarely is a sports movie so inept that it can't even make its central figure likable.
  5. Arguably as effective as Ambien at inducing sleep, but possible side effects include uncontrollable laughter.
  6. Sometimes there's a fine line between a labor of love and a vanity project, and The Lost City, Andy Garcia's heartfelt - but hackneyed and interminable - love letter to his native Cuba, repeatedly crosses it.
  7. Looks great for a no-budget indie, but not a single moment rings true in this sluggish vanity project, which is sorely in need of Viagra.

    The documentary Giuliani Time, which seeks to knock our former mayor off his pedestal, hits him with all the force of a wadded-up Kleenex. Those who hope Rudy Giuliani never returns to public life must be getting panicky.
  8. The story lacks focus. The senses blur as wives and ex-wives come and go, and Harry regularly falls off the wagon, only to reform the next day.

    There is no tragedy without character, yet the way The King drapes heavy situations around its feebly imagined personalities suggests a tire thrown around the neck of a poodle.
    • 75 Metascore

    Avoiding the usual vein-popping diatribes, he comes across as learned, calm and folksy. But much of what Gore says in this slide show he gives to people whose minds are not yet fully formed (undergraduates, actors) is absurd, and his assertions often contradict each other.
  9. As a narrative, Shem, directed by Caroline Roboh, is a pointless hodgepodge, with a finale that will leave viewers scratching their heads.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Tries to be "The Karate Kid" of gymnastics. It looks more like "The Karate Kid" as imagined by Details magazine.
  10. Mainstream moviegoers will be put off by the subtitles, and art-house fans will be insulted by the story's shallowness.
  11. Sex can be fun and exciting and wonderful. It also can be deadly boring, as in Psychopathia Sexu alis.
  12. Slow-witted and occasionally unintentionally hilarious.

    In the future, more and more filmmakers will do exactly what The Great New Wonderful has done: conceal their lack of ideas by bringing up 9/11.
  13. Sexual and toilet humor plumb new depths in Keenen Ivory Wayans' Little Man, which will stink up theaters like several gross of dirty diapers.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Comes about five films after writer-director-star Ed Burns should have found another career.
  14. Despite this seemingly surefire premise and cast of veteran comedians - there's even a cameo by Liza Minnelli as a masturbation coach - The OH in Ohio just lies there, without a single laugh.
  15. A charmless, unscary, fatuous and largely incoherent fairy tale.
  16. The autobiographical script meanders and the acting never solidifies. Besides, the leads look too old to be in high school - maybe even college.
  17. I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a prison picture as utterly boring as Jailbait.
  18. Pulse bears more than a slight resemblance to a 1994 American horror called "Ghost in the Machine." They didn't screen that stinker in advance for critics, either.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    A British indie as tepid as yesterday morning's tea.
  19. Tucker's message is sometimes on target, even if his film isn't.
  20. A repugnant little indie black comedy, poorly acted in hideous-looking digital video, guaranteed to send audiences fleeing for the nearest shower.
