    The film is so harmless, and the young actors try so hard, that it's difficult not to have some fun.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    A well-intentioned horror film that is weighted down by stellar cast members who for the most part act as if they don't want to be there.

    At times, "European Gigolo" feels more like an international incident than a movie.

    More action directors should include scenes such as the Mercers' extended Thanksgiving dinner, which fleshes out the bond between the brothers without using too many words.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    A love story that gets the single male culture down so honestly and unapologetically that it can't help but push the boundaries of political correctness.

    Favoring precision filmmaking over cheap thrills, with a vibe more Alfred Hitchcock than Freddy Krueger, Red Eye establishes two intelligent characters and lets audiences sit back and enjoy an entertaining battle of brains and wills.

    • 50 Peter Hartlaub
    Despite a decent cast of mostly British voice actors and better-than-average computer animation, the movie seems rushed at 76 minutes and is only marginally funny.

    The Cave is National Geographic mixed with Roger Corman, and by the end you'll probably be wishing you saw "Red Eye" instead.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    The movie plays more like a WB network teen drama than something audiences should be expected to pay to see.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Hartlaub
    If you can get past the impossibilities it is a fun time at the movies.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    Less an original product than a shoddy tribute to other mediocre cop movies.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    It isn't smart or even very scary.

    Unpolished but entertaining.

    You'll feel so much better just sending your $9.50 to the Red Cross then catching "I Know What You Did Last Summer" one more time on television.
    • 59 Metascore

    Funny and honest.

    The makers of Into the Blue know what the audience wants. And they deliver a little bit more.

    As challenging as it must have been to pilot Joss Whedon's space opera from the TV junk pile to the big screen, the finished product is a triumph.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    Very imaginative and can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
    • 30 Metascore

    Lots of people will leave screenings of this movie in disgust -- and laughter is the last thing they will hear on the way out.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    Like most movies based on games, this film appears to have been quite literally doomed from the start.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Peter Hartlaub
    Basically, this is a really good movie until the last part, where director and co-writer Darren Lynn Bousman ruins so much so fast that you'll wonder if his actions are deliberate -- or if the studio interfered.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    As cluttered as the movie gets before the ending, it's funny throughout, with some 1970s and '80s music thrown in to keep adults happy.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    Compelling and frequently entertaining.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    May be a good tactical move for the artist's career, but it's a bad movie.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    A thoroughly enjoyable three-or four-gimmick comedy.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    Succeeds as both education and amusement.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    Marshall takes a modest budget and a concept that isn't all that original and produces a frightening, intelligent and sexy thriller.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Peter Hartlaub
    A few amusing moments mixed in with the painful ones.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Hartlaub
    The movie's shockingly tasteless setup is also its secret weapon. Despite many scenes in The Ringer that could individually be viewed as politically incorrect, audiences will be laughing with the athletes most of the time.

    If you can get past a few swear words, the film's simplicity makes Glory Road a good starting point to get young kids to talk about racism.
