  1. [Gere] seemed to be improvising his way from beginning to end, like he was disgusted with the actual script.
  2. Red Heat is poorly, or even indifferently, made. It's a joyless exercise, and too much angry resignation seeps in for it to be very funny or very entertaining.

    The relentless vulgarities in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past would be almost tolerable if they were amusing, but Mark Waters's direction is so tentative that the film's single laugh happens more than an hour in.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    This Hollywood Pictures production (basically, a Walt Disney adult venture) culls every Capitol-corruption cliche in the book for the dullest 90 minutes Murphy has ever appeared in.
  3. The result isn't merely ludicrous, it's something far worse. It's drab. It's uninteresting. It squanders Chan's uniqueness; it could even be said to squander Jennifer Love Hewitt!

  4. Shouldn't fool viewers into thinking it's anything but a pseudo-artsy piece of tripe.
  5. A blundering cringefest, thanks to unintentionally laughable dialogue, hackneyed writing and uninspired direction.
  6. The film degenerates into sophomoric name calling and a brand of insult humor that would embarrass Don Rickles.
  7. A third-rate love story.
  8. It's something no one should watch.
  9. A plodding, aggressive film that is neither engaging, disturbing nor funny.
  10. Consider the title your best advice.
  11. Father of the Bride, Part II is a virtual avalanche of cheap emotion. Short on comedy but long on maudlin sentiment, this sequel stumps so hard for the traditional values of home, hearth and family that any possible entertainment value is canceled out.
