    The cynics will scoff and dismiss it all as manipulative, the heartstring-tugging machine on hyperdrive. But this movie isn't for them; did you not see the PG? It's a sweet, sincere, utterly affable kids' movie about how parents are all kinds of screwed up and unable to tell their kids what they want or show them how they feel.

    It really happened, it's really corny, and it's really great.

    This is the smart-ass stoner's "E.T.," the movie the fanboy parent won't be able to hand down like some tattered, squeaky-clean memento to their action-figure-collecting kids. It's just not quite right without Wright, who could have helped Frost and Pegg stuff Mel Brooks back into their Han Solo Underoos.

    Craig, excellent in both art house endeavors (The Mother, Enduring Love) and blockbuster think pieces (Munich), has both a nasty streak and a soft side never before seen in the series; Fleming would recognize him as most like his literary creation: damaged goods in a tailored tux.

    Dark and funny and mean and sexy, damned near pitch-black-perfect considering that at the end of this boozy comedy you wind up with, oh, Osama bin Laden.

    A spastic, indecipherable, unholy, and altogether unwatchable mess.

    As he did in "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz", Wright immerses his heroes in pop culture's detritus and diversions, but doesn't drown them in it. You don't have to be dazzled or tickled by the movie, or get every joke, to be touched by it, too.

    The X-Men franchise takes a giant leap backward and off a cliff with its fourth offering.

    Once more, Tim Allen drops a lump of coal down the chimney.

    It's not hard to see why actors love working with Penn, even in the smallest roles; he lets them speak monologues even when they're saying nothing at all.

    Little Nicky will redefine the phrase "worst movie ever," because it might actually be the worst movie ever.

    This film is no "Usual Suspects," because there is no twist, no gotcha.

    Altman gladly admits there's not much of a story here; his movies are driven by characters.

    It's just a familiar bore, offering chills and thrills only to those who have never seen a movie before.

    This is a Julia Roberts Movie about only one thing: being a Julia Roberts Movie.

    One can only assume all the, ah, good stuff landed on the cutting-room floor, because it sure as hell didn't make it to Mars.

    Singleton's version is cynical and silly--one long set-up to a closing scene that promises, or threatens, a sequel.

    A football film made by a man who apparently has seen little of the game outside of movies, and not very good ones at that.
    • 77 Metascore

    A trifle at best, a lightweight, wink-wink amalgam of myriad other films, some of which have even starred Chan and Wilson.

    Like a half-remembered dream, the movie's often so overwhelming that even its dull, dead moments (of which there are many, unfortunately) leave you wondering what you're missing and what you've just forgotten.

    The love story, not to mention plot holes large enough to swallow entire platoons, so bogs down the story that whatever tension the Vassili-Konig confrontation creates disappears every time Weisz appears on-screen; she tears apart comrades--and the movie.

    It's absolutely awful, and even Gene Hackman can't carry it across the goal line.

    It's too easy, but here goes: This movie's a Loser. Sorry.

    It will linger like a foul odor or the taste of tinfoil between the teeth.

    The whole thing seems to meander aimlessly, rarely creating a chill.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Wilonsky
    Banal sit-comedy masquerading as religious deepthink dolled up as boy-meets-goy love story.

    Really, what women want is what all of us want: a decent movie, something vaguely insightful and occasionally funny. This isn't that movie.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Wilonsky
    Obnoxiously dull.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Robert Wilonsky
    So utterly awful, you're tempted to build a time machine, then go back in history and try to make sure Ward's parents never meet.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Wilonsky
    Engaging and revelatory, turning forgotten footnotes and discarded minutiae into the stuff of riveting drama and poignant laughs.
