    At its best, The Good Girl is a refreshingly adult take on adultery, where the dark humor and offbeat fringe characters don't get in the way of the consequences or the quiet declarations of devotion slipped between the words.

    For the most part the eruption of repressed anger is blindly destructive. There's little healing to be found in the bitter melodrama, but there is a small sense of triumph as the children face up and move on.

    If Irwin is your bag, then this is your film. Otherwise, Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course is dumb, mate. Real dumb.
    • 39 Metascore

    Disarmingly funny in its own naive way.

    Spottiswoode and Schwarzenegger deliver a clever and colorful conspiratorial thriller with high-energy action scenes, car crashes a go-go, spectacular technology and big explosions, packaged with ferocious glee and spoofing humor. Who could ask for more from Ah-nold?

    The slapdash comic flailing of screenwriter and TV scribe-turned-director Ed Decter is only compounded by a script so disconnected you have to wonder if pages were lost on the way to the set.

    Imagine Warren Beatty in "Shampoo" by way of a Jewish Rambo.

    The young cast, all nonactors who developed their characters with Cantet and B├ęgaudeau, brings the weight of full lives to each of the students.

    Apart from the gender twists, there is one notable difference between the traditional slasher flick and this gay take: Here, even the nice boy gets it on. And he doesn't even get punished for it.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 91 Sean Axmaker
    Energetic and inventive, it's a satirical, smart, grown-up thriller.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 67 Sean Axmaker
    The lack of irony, let alone ambiguity, in an upside world in which mobsters are the underdogs, should sink the film, but Lumet's laid-back professionalism and Diesel's big-hearted performance give it an affable buoyancy.

    Those willing to give themselves up to Lynch's sensibilities will find a hypnotic and richly textural experience that challenges them to make their own connections through the imagery, echoes of repeated dialogue and metaphor.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Underworld opera of the bravura kind, this is driven, like most Hong Kong action, more by emotion than logic.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 91 Sean Axmaker
    A bare outline of the plot reads like a space-adventure thriller with end-of-the-world stakes and a hint of celestial spirituality, and the haunted spaceship twist in the third act is pure B-movie madness.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    It's phony and forced, but mostly it's just silly. If there was once a satirical edge to this thriller, it's been programmed right out.

    How She Move is the latest urban music drama from MTV Films, and it manages to give a familiar story a vivid jolt of character.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Not a comedy of guffaws and goofy gags, but a wry, underplayed little piece with an undercurrent of loss and abandonment.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Ayala gives Joan a fiery, full-blooded passion and Aranda challenges Pedro Almodovar in the arena of self-destructive love, obsessive passion and sweaty cinematic sex. It's the lustiest costume drama in years.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Sean Axmaker
    He (LaBute) pulls the farce and the violence and the fantasies together with a deft touch and a sweetness rare in American films -- especially his.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 67 Sean Axmaker
    What Spottiswoode lacks in subtlety and restraint, he balances with a heartfelt passion for the material.

    "Time destroys all," claims the film, but the monstrous capabilities of human evil is the real culprit here, and Noe is determined to prove that the real evil that men do is not fodder for cinematic spectacle and cinematic entertainment.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    There's a real joy to this film, a love of the music and an appreciation of the band's eccentric humor.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Sean Axmaker
    Cements director's place as mob-movie master.

    Jolie steals the film from nominal star McAvoy in the wild gunfight and dynamically absurd chase that kick Wanted into high gear. Her wicked moves and seductive smirk brand her immediately as a true believer who really, really loves her work.

    Verbinski puts a Jackie Chan flourish of high energy and gymnastic action on the swashbuckling stunts and swordplay and keeps this lark sailing along.
    • 73 Metascore

    I guess there's something grizzled old codgers like Clint can teach those young hotshots after all.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    Prinze and Forlani coast on charisma alone, but even their charms can't coax magic from the prosaic dialogue and romantic clichés that clog this listless comedy.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    There is no stylistic thrill to this blunt object of a callous action film. It's content to bludgeon the audience into numb resignation.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Sean Axmaker
    Yimou plays his images like a visual symphony, and turns a potential costume pageant into an exhilarating national myth.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 42 Sean Axmaker
    There are cute flourishes, but much of the cleverness is smothered by tired dialogue and doughy animation, which gives the animated characters the personality of mannequins and the look of cheap merchandising knockoffs come to life.
