  1. If you really love "Bull Durham," don't go near Play It to the Bone. It will break your heart.
  2. Looks exquisite, but don't bother digging deeper.
  3. Feels static and constricted, its intensity dulled by overreliance on dialogue.
  4. He's (Sandler) trying to clone himself by supporting his buddies in making low-budget, high-grossing -- in all senses of the word -- formula films just like his own.

  5. It's up to O'Donnell to carry the show, and he's simply not up to the task.

    • 36 Metascore

    It's not the sort of movie you watch; it's the sort that assaults you.

    Dumb cliches run amok.
    • Miami Herald
  6. Gives romance a bad name.
  7. So thunderously unfunny...There is no reason for an 82-minute movie to feel so very, very long.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    A confused mess of music video montages drowns out the rest of the action, depicting the foursome in a variety of sexy romps that clash with the plot.
    • Miami Herald
  8. Humdrum hybrid of stale sitcom characters and creaky sports cliches.
    • Miami Herald
  9. A grand, eye-popping film, a beautifully photographed epic with the depth of a Bugs Bunny Cartoon.

    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    (Theron) and Depp give lazy, almost irrelevant performances... resolutely unmoving.

    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Wilson's plot compulsively leaps from paper-thin to near-incoherent.

  10. A spectacularly mediocre movie.
  11. The Haunting is ultimately another example of Hollywood at its most bloated and misguided [23 July 1999, p.9G]

  12. Among the many problems with the Generation Acne romantic comedy She's All That is that a self-consciously stupid, 9-year-old TV series ["Beverly Hills: 90210"] has covered the same territory with more smarts, style and laughs, albeit the unintentional kind. This movie exists solely to snag a cut of the weekly allowance doled out to bored mall brats. And even they would probably prefer shopping. [29 Jan 1999, p.5G]

    If you think putting grapes in your nostrils is hilarious, you'll like Good Burger. And if you think taking the grapes out and eating them is even funnier, prepare to fall in love. [25 July 1997, p.4G]

  13. I could tell you what Double Team is about, but life is short. Instead, I'll tell you that Van Damme and Rodman play the good guys, and that they trade lines like "You're crazier than my hairstylist!" and "You look like a carrot with earrings!" [5 Apr 1997, p.1G]

    Christina Ricci is the best thing about this otherwise misguided, retro remake of the 1965 movie that starred Hayley Mills. [09 Aug 1997, p.2G]

  14. Combined with the sluggish story line, Daylight becomes a chore to sit through: The only people who want to get out of the tunnel more desperately than the characters in the movie are the ones stuck in the theater. [6 Dec 1996, p.5G]
    • Miami Herald
  15. The saddest part about this whole affair is that it took Bugs and Co. 60 years to make their feature debut -- and this is what they get. At one point, Daffy Duck is discussing merchandising royalties and says, "We gotta get new agents -- we're getting screwed." In Space Jam , even the cartoons are in it only for the money. [15 Nov 1996, p.5G]

  16. Stupid and exploitive, the movie is loaded with cartoonish gunplay, car chases and strange allusions to The Godfather. This is an offer you'll gladly refuse. [06 Nov 1996, p.5D]

    This is one of those what-were-they-thinking flicks, a movie so inane you can't imagine how anyone thought they'd created something watchable. [02 Nov 1996, p.5G]
    • Miami Herald
  17. Laughable, contrived banality. You won't believe a second of it. [17 Sept 1996, p.25G]
    • Miami Herald
  18. Bulletproof is a lobotomized rehash of Midnight Run. [11 Sept 1996, p.4D]
    • Miami Herald
  19. When Escape From L.A. isn't being ridiculous, it's merely dumb. It's no fun at all. [09 Aug 1996, p.6G]
    • Miami Herald
  20. Chain Reaction has the unenviable hurdle of following up a summer load of action flicks, but this one would have felt like a dog in May. When Lily sees Eddie wrestling with the controls of an airboat and asks "What are you doing?" he yells back "The best I can!" Keanu, you could have done a lot better. [2 Aug 1996, p.5G]
    • Miami Herald
  21. How to quadruple your fun: stay home. [17 July 1996, p.2D]
    • Miami Herald
  22. In The Arrival, Charlie Sheen makes a startling discovery that, sadly, has nothing to do with the suspicion that he should have ended his flagging movie career ages ago. [31 May 1996, p.6G]
