If you are a Will Ferrell fan who can overlook the film’s flaws and ignore the non-stop coarseness, there may be some laughs in Step Brothers for you. If not, the trashiness greatly overshadows the funny.

Will Smith Can't Save Hancock

Will Smith’s latest certainly isn’t boring or lacking energy. If anything, it overcompensates. But all the bells and whistles eventually can’t distract from the fact that Hancock completely falls off the rails halfway through.

Space Chimps Isn't Out of This World

In Space Chimps, not only is the low-grade CG on par with most Saturday morning cartoons, but the lack of vitality and movement in the characters themselves stands in the way of any sort of human connection.

There’s Not Much Incentive to Meet Dave

The nicest thing anyone can say about Meet Dave is that thankfully, it’s not as bad as Norbit. Once again, Eddie Murphy tries potentially family-friendly fare and this time ends up not quite a total bomb—but close.

Proving that popular books can be beautifully adapted for the big screen, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 has all the verve and spunk of the original as the four friends are now wrestling with being college-age girls.

Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy II Not Quite Golden

Fans of Director Guillermo del Toro’s other films will detect a certain sameness to some of the creatures shown in Hellboy II. It also lags a little with special effects taking prominence over story and character development.

Kids and Adults Will Get a Kick Out of Kung Fu Panda

Pursuing your dreams—no matter how big or small—has been a time-honored theme in many a kid’s movie. And the new Jack Black vehicle, Kung Fu Panda, doesn’t stray too far from form.

Get Smart a Truly Hilarious Spy-Spoof Update

Surprisingly, the filmmakers set themselves apart from the typical 1970s “television to film” retread by creating a truly hilarious film, one that updates the spy spoof without the typical comedic contempt.

It's a Bumpy Journey to the Center of the Earth

Films that appeal to the family are so rare that whenever one comes along that doesn’t impress as much as it should, it’s tough to break the news. Walden Media's Journey to the Center of the Earth is such a film.

Kit Kittredge Not Just for Girls But for Generations

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl is not just a movie for little girls but for generations of girls—not simply to enjoy but to share, to connect through, and possibly even bond in ways they never even considered or thought possible.

Expelled Promotes Intriguing Intelligent Design Dialogue

If those who write off intelligent design as nothing more than conservative, right-wing rhetoric would be willing to put aside their notions, they may be surprised by the provocative dialogue that’s been initiated in Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

The Incredible Hulk Unremarkable Comic Book Fare

Summer action movies are often nothing more than mindless explosions and special effects. Occasionally these popcorn flicks offer something a little deeper. With The Incredible Hulk, clearly the filmmakers are reaching for the latter... with mixed results.

Ford Still Has the Indy Flair in Crystal Skull

It’s been 19 years since we’ve last seen Indiana Jones. And in the fourth installment of the popular film franchise, Harrison Ford actually seems rather inspired when he grabs his bullwhip and dons that legendary fedora.

Kids Can Learn a Lot from Pirates Who Don't Do Anything

What’s a compelling way to convey to kids that they are children of a soon-returning king and potential heroes despite their fear and weakness? Try taking them to see VeggieTales’ latest, The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan Is Good Advice

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan isn’t merely the name of Adam Sandler’s new comedy; it’s also good advice. If you were to try and take this movie on—one predicated on sexual jokes, ethnic stereotypes and ludicrous sight-gags—it would simply beat you down.

Gory Happening Doesn’t Make a Twitch of Sense

Not only are there no tidy (or even quasi-rational) answers to why people are spontaneously killing themselves in M. Night Shyamalan’s latest, but the movie actually gets more confusing—and eye-roll inducing—as the minutes tick on by.

Better Luck Next Time for Iron Man

During a preview screening, squeals upon the first full look at Iron Man were a resounding signal as to what the audience had come to see—not Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. No, this man of steel—"titanium alloy" Stark specifies—is the star of the show.

More Manolos and Meaninglessness in Sex and the City

In the midst of the meaninglessness, a movie like Sex and the City does manage to offer a powerful reminder. It demonstrates, yet again, how utterly pointless life is—and how difficult relationships are—without a greater purpose for living.
