    Prodded by Landis' slam-bang direction, the effect isn't so much a comedy as it is an exercise in excess. Somewhere in the planning stage one all-important factor was left out: humor. The concept is a funny one, yet no one seems to have the faintest idea of what to do with it. Between Landis' direction and the initially lame screenplay, Three Amigos never really stands a chance.

    Blame It On Rio turns into a most uncomfortable film, leeringly depicting an affair with decidely icky undertones of incest and pedophilia. Between gratuitous (if titillating) nude scenes and a succession of lame soundtrack songs, there are plenty of travelogue shots to pad out the thin narrative line. Caine looks embarrassed through the entire film, as well he might.

    Larter just doesn't have the same bite as the bunny-killing stalkers of years gone by.

    So, in essence, The Informers fails precisely because we never believe these lost souls were ever human enough to have had a soul to lose in the first place.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Never figures out what it wants to be, and ends up a jumbled mess that nobody wants.

    Just know there's a whole lot more great stuff out there than just what Evolution has in store for you -- namely, the anime that it was based on.

    Fans will clap along with the many songs, but the tunes aren't interesting enough to win over the unconverted -- a fact made clear when genuine teen star Taylor Swift shows up to perform -- she demonstrates all the spontaneity and authenticity that Miley Cyrus lacks.

    Alien Trespass needs to be buried for another 50 years and then unearthed to be studied for how tributes can go oh so wrong.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    It's not fun and it gets tiring real fast.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    A film that pays lip service to some interesting ideas, but is far too concerned with pleasing a large crowd to be anything more than another instantly forgettable fright flick.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Knowing is the path to eternal pain.
    • 7 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Certainly, it's gross, and maybe even a bit shocking, but these filmmakers are smart enough to realize that raising the bar on crassness in teen sex comedies is a zero sum game.

    There's something special about this underwhelming mess of a Street Fighter reboot that many cinematic cheese-lovers will find very appetizing. The fact is that The Legend of Chun-Li is not at all a good flick, but it's filled with so much cornball ineptitude that one would think some rather broken mad movie genius was behind it.

    Raunchy.

    If your tolerance for repetition in genre films is already low, this one will probably push you right over the edge.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Lets down both its actress and the audience.

    It's best to line The Uninvited right up on the soon-to-be-forgotten shelves next to the now third-generation Asian remakes and wait for the next effective foreign genre fare for Hollywood to butcher and rehash.
    • 39 Metascore

    James plays it safe. And, short of unfunny, safe is the worst thing a comedian can be.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    All in all, that's not a bad premise for a lightweight chick flick, but director Gary Winick and an army of three screenwriters can't come up with a single fresh comedic idea.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Those looking for genuine drama should probably look elsewhere.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    An insult to the intelligence of most moviegoers.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    We never get a real sense of what made these recordings so different or revolutionary. Part of the problem is that re-recorded versions of songs by the actors were used in the film, with vastly mixed results that never match the ferocity and excitement of the original tracks.

    Herman fails to journey beyond the surface-level realities of his central perspective, which makes his film feel half-developed and poorly conceived, and drives it into sensationalism.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    Horror of the glossiest, safest kind. It's a boring bubblegum shocker that loses its flavor faster than Fruit Stripes.

    Pride and Glory would be a pretty cool movie if it were made in 1982.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    It's cheap, sloppy, and too jumbled up to know what it should be.
  1. Noisy, derivative and thoroughly preposterous even by the standards of 21st-century action movies.
  2. A shameless puddle of romantic slop.
  3. It lacks the courage of its swinish convictions, and abruptly acquiesces to bland rom-com clich├ęs three-quarters of the way to its appointed end.
  4. Played for Maverick-like comedy, the film might have coasted on Harris and Mortensen's dialogue. But played straight it's both dull and preposterous.
