    Surprisingly heartfelt tale.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    A series of outrageous situations and generally manages to walk the thin line between poking fun at racial stereotypes and reinforcing them.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Should have been pared down into an episode of the series.

    Only Lopez, the film's ostensible star, seems to be struggling; she's a lovely dancer, but the only reason Lopez's expressionless performance isn't this sweet picture's downfall is that the script makes so few demands on her.

    • 30 Angel Cohn
    The individual stories are so truncated that they can't do much in the way of giving their characters real emotional depth.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Angel Cohn
    Awash in pop-culture jokes that will fly over the heads of tots and delight their parents, this vividly colored romp is a worthy sequel to the 1991 Oscar winner.

    The only bright spots are Cavanagh's easy charm about him and Cumming's performance as Grody -- he's much more believable as a straight man than Graham is as a gay woman.

    • 63 Angel Cohn
    Mayer knows how to tug at the heartstrings, and his admirably restrained cast keeps the family drama from becoming too sugary.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The film is wickedly funny and a first-rate showcase for Ferrell.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Most of the occasional chuckles are provided by the spunky York, who really gives Diesel a run for his money.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    For most of the film, Cedric seems to be holding back, though his relationship with genuinely charming rapper-turned-actor (Lil') Bow Wow offers up a few funny moments.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The bad news is that the racing scenes are repetitive and it takes some serious concentration to figure out which character belongs to what club.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 63 Angel Cohn
    Funny moments can be found throughout, but it's mostly silly and scattered.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Harmon and Murray are cardboard cutouts of ideal boyfriends; the only male performer allowed to shine is newcomer Ryan Malgarini, who nearly steals every scene he's in.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    The film founders during a series of uncomfortable scenes involving Biggs and DeVito, whose performance verges on painful caricature, but Ricci is adorable and delivers Allen's sharp dialogue with real flare.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Though the script is best described as mechanical and it takes a while to get into gear, this computer-generated "reach for the stars" story is a well-calibrated piece of entertainment.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Angel Cohn
    This hockey movie scores, thanks to director Gavin O'Connor's ability to skate that fine line between inspirational and melodramatic and achieve a satisfying balance.
    • 64 Metascore

    Elf
    Director Jon Favreau keeps the guy-in-an-elf-suit act from degenerating into a too-long sketch, focusing on Buddy's naïve optimism, even in the face of harsh reality.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Angel Cohn
    Moore and Harrelson are very well cast.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Undeniably entertaining.

    Unfortunately, the emotionally resonant moments between Murphy and Fanning are few and far between; the rest of the film relies on goofy physical comedy -- Murphy takes more pratfalls that any young woman should have to.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    Hudson and Wilson share a natural and easy chemistry that helps compensate for the Cuban-mobster subplot.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Angel Cohn
    A pretty little package whose perfect, fairy-tale ending is just a little too neat, the film's colorful wrapping includes veteran actress Carol Kane's bizarre but enjoyable performance as the school's uptight drama teacher.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    The film's utterly predictable dialogue and plot developments will leave most viewers cold. Ice-struck preteens are, of course, the exceptions.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    The film is an intriguing and hugely theatrical experience whose effectiveness is greatly enhanced by gorgeous period costumes and set design.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 20 Angel Cohn
    It took a village of screenwriters and story creators - including costar Queen Latifah and first-time director Lance Rivera - to cram just about every imaginable stereotype about African-Americans and white people ever conceived into this short, unappetizing comedy.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Angel Cohn
    While changes have been made to the book in the interest of compressing the story and emphasizing certain life lessons, the 33-year-old premise is still perfectly in sync with the sensibilities of preteen boys everywhere.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Angel Cohn
    Fans of the original may be disheartened by this glossier, action-packed version, but the brisker pacing and showy shoot-'em-up scenes are exactly what will appeal to the film's target audience.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Angel Cohn
    Only those who really love the Bug will be willing to put up with the loose plot and over-the-top action scenes.

    Williams isn't really playing Adams: He's once again playing himself, and the act is getting tired.
