  1. Getaway is pretty much a 90-minute car chase. That's it.
  2. The movie, however, seems to make the wrong decision at almost every opportunity, trying for the kind of melodramatic tragedy that only works in opera.
  3. In pandering to Hollywood standards about how stories like this should unfold, LaBute has lost his edge.
  4. At least the set design and costumes are excellent. The movie feels overstuffed and undercooked but it always looks nice.
  5. As good as the lead actor is, he's not enough to save this picture from landing on the scrap-heap of uninspired, derivative, and grotesquely distasteful character studies. Ferrara is definitely no Martin Scorsese.
  6. Cursed with two of the least interesting bad guys in recent memory. While McGivens and Armand are unquestionably villainous, there's nothing about them to cause audiences to hiss. They're boring.
  7. Eastern Promises is a jumbled string of mob-related clichés that mesh into something that’s derivative and at times uninteresting.
  8. Formulated on an idiotic idea and develops a predictably lackluster motion picture from it.
  9. "Labor" isn't just a word in the title of Jason Reitman's new film, it's a description of what it feels like to sit through the movie.
  10. Failure to Launch fails at more than just launching. It fails at romance and comedy.
  11. Recommended only for die-hard fans of the TV show. Others are advised to wait until this is available in a smaller format.
  12. The film's comedy is lackluster, with supporting actors Nathan Lane and Sean Hayes (as Tad's manager and agent) providing a few mildly amusing moments that would be at home in a sit-com.
  13. This movie desperately wants to be liked. The problem is, there's not much here to like -- at least nothing that's new or interesting.
  14. The absence of originality and inspiration isn't Mad City's only problem -- it also suffers from a shocking lack of subtlety.
  15. Once the setup is over, however, Indecent Proposal starts to fall apart, with the implausibilities and contrivances getting worse with every passing minute.
  16. Tobey Maguire is fine as Nick but his function is more as an observer than a participant. Carey Mulligan's Daisy is unremarkable in every way. And Joel Edgerton is just a mustache twirl away from doing a Snidely Whiplash impersonation.
  17. If you're desperate to give something up for Lent, make it movies like this one.
  18. It's moderately engaging for the first half-hour, somewhat trying during the second half hour, and virtually unbearable over the final twenty minutes. It's a marginally recommendable film for kids, but not necessarily for parents.
  19. Words cannot express how weary I am of watching lifeless, hollow movies like My Life in Ruins - generic romantic comedies that have no clue when it comes to either "romance" or "comedy."
  20. The comedy is mostly restricted to one-liners, some of which aren't funny. And the action is uninspired, barely tapping the vast potential of an amusement park chase film.
  21. An effective translation of the source material, but that's not necessarily a good thing.
  22. Moody and atmospheric -- a study in tone over plot and pacing over characterization. Unfortunately, in devoting all of their efforts towards the film's look and feel, co-creators Mark and Michael Polish have crafted a motion picture that is static, occasionally opaque, and, worst of all, boring.
  23. The root problem with The Wolfman is that it's a hybrid.
  24. It's watchable, but barely.
  25. The Proposal follows a paint-by-numbers script, it fails one key acid test: it doesn't sell the romance.
  26. This could easily go down as the year's best example of solid acting in a wretched motion picture.
  27. Although the film is clearly trying to follow in the footsteps of the Beatles' classic, it's several long strides behind, lacking the same sense of originality, spontaneity, high energy, and joi de vivre.
  28. Wonderful World feels like a modern-day half-baked riff on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
  29. The main problem with Coach Carter can be summed up simply: too much sermonizing.
  30. A thrill-less thriller that uses gore to obfuscate its inability to generate tension, this motion picture has the profile one might expect from a direct-to-video release.
