  1. There are occasional nice moments scattered throughout, but this is mostly a big, uncomfortable cartoon focused on the twisted attraction between two caricatures.
  2. What Linklater does exceptionally well is open the door on an era seventeen years in the past. This is 1976, from the music and cars...to the people and their attitudes. You'd have to climb into a time machine to get a better view...However, this is light entertainment -- nothing groundbreaking or even especially noteworthy.
  3. It has the sensibilities of a late-'80s/early-'90s forgettable big-screen sit com and probably won't find many interested viewers who aren't card-carrying AARP members.
  4. Taken 3 is exactly what one might anticipate from an unnecessary sequel in a mediocre franchise.
  5. W.
    Superficial, uninformative, and inert, this two hour snoozefest isn't even inflammatory enough to stoke a righteous anti-Bush brushfire. W. does for recent history what Oliver Stone's epic "Alexander" did for ancient times.
  6. Martian Child wants to make us cry. It nearly made me gag. This is an exercise in shameless and inept emotional manipulation.
  7. Murphy in particular deserves better, but at least she got a boyfriend and a paycheck out of the deal. No such benefits await those who sacrifice both cash and time to see this movie.
  8. The Rocker is more disappointing than it is outright bad. One expects something a little fresher from Wilson.
  9. A clumsy motion picture that strives so hard for the perfect romantic ending that it triggers a gag reflex along the way.
  10. The contrived storyline offers little opportunity for characters to grow and the meandering narrative trajectory and anticlimactic ending will have some viewers wondering why they bothered.
  11. The best bits in this film fall short of being inspired, but they are outrageous.
  12. The result is tepid humor and a less-than-compelling feel-good story of redemption and re-kindled romance.
  13. Foster's film offers its fair share of laughs, although most come at the expense of "easy mark" characters. Dramatically, however, the movie is only a step up from a flop.
  14. Beastly was made with tween girls in mind. It's the kind of love story a viewer can believe in when she is indiscriminating enough to ignore bad acting, bad writing, and mediocre filmmaking.
