Labor Day

Director Reitman finally has a real stinker on his resumé with this sappy, schlocky film. Even Nicholas Sparks would scratch his head.

Ladder 49

“Ladder 49” is a powerful portrayal of what it really means to be a firefighter. It is the perfect film for a post-911 society that is still coming to grips with the kind of sacrificial courage which made hundreds of men rush into the Twin Towers, where they saved hundreds of lives but lost their own. What better example or metaphor could we see for true faith?

Lady in the Water

Although not quite on par with some of M. Night Shyamalan's earlier work, Lady in the Water is the only one of this director's films that might be appropriate for older children. Not a rigorous workout, it's a nice dip during the arid summer moviegoing season.

 
Lake House, The

The trouble with The Lake House isn't the lack of an intriguing premise, a talented cast or picturesque scenery. It's the fact that the story plods along at a painfully slow pace, without even a hint of that romantic spark we’re supposed to be all excited about between the lead characters.

 
Land of the Lost

Unlike the smart writing and savvy direction of Star Trek, Land of the Lost only has Will Ferrell's over-the-top attempts to deliver the funny. And when some of the movie’s biggest laughs involve Matt Lauer, you know you're in trouble. Deep trouble.

 
Larry Crowne

With Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, Larry Crowne stands as an example of how star-driven vehicles can suffer from bloat.

 
Last Airbender, The

Director M. Night Shyamalan could use a hit, but his latest film, The Last Airbender, based on a Nickelodeon cartoon, is likely to cement his reputation as a filmmaker who peaked early and then crashed and burned.

 
Last Castle, The

Three-star General Irwin (Robert Redford) is sentenced to serve time in a maximum security prison. His presence there irritates the warden, Colonel Winter (James Gandolfini), but Irwin earns the respect of his fellow inmates and ultimately takes control of the prison.

 
Last King of Scotland, The

In "The Last King of Scotland," director Kevin MacDonald shows a bit too much torture and dismemberment, but his talent is evident and his message is important. It’s not so much about brutal dictators as it is about Western arrogance.

Last Kiss, The

In “The Last Kiss,” what are supposed to be “real” and “gritty” portrayals of modern relationship woes come off as nothing more than the rotten fruit that results, when people only focus on themselves.

Last Mimzy, The

The masterminds behind The Last Mimzy showcase a Hollywood brand of spirituality that’s not particularly subtle, as everything from Buddhism to astrology to new age philosophies get major screen time.

 
Last Samurai, The

I was engrossed in this compelling saga from the first frame to the last Samurai! Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe deliver Oscar-worthy performances in an epic on the level of “Braveheart” or “Dances with Wolves.”

 
Last Sin Eater, The

I applaud director Michael Landon Jr.'s goals, and I have no doubt that he put his very heart into this movie. I also sympathize with the film’s strong gospel message. As a film critic, however, I’m obliged to hold him to the same standard as other filmmakers.

Last Song, The

The Last Song, written for the screen by novelist Nicholas Sparks and starring Miley Cyrus, is treacly, preposterous and full of clichés. It's also moving and, for the most part, family-friendly, focusing on themes of human failure and forgiveness.

 
Last Stand, The

No one will mistake The Last Stand for anything made in Schwarzenegger’s glory years, but it contains exactly what the audience expects.

Last Vegas

Gives the audience no reason to care, creating yet another movie where a slew of A-list talent can't save it from being a stinker.

Law Abiding Citizen

Mixing sexual violence with moments of torture-porn, Law Abiding Citizen is one of the year’s low points at the cinema—an offensive, ugly piece of work that offers no moral nor anything memorable except its sadism.

Lawless

If the story packs in too many characters and feels a bit unbalanced, it pays off handsomely with a classic shootout that thrills in its simplicity.

Laws of Attraction

If you like lawyer jokes, you’ll love this film, which plays on stereotypes and creates a few new ones while dispensing a much-needed message about the power of making marriage work, against all odds.

Le Divorce

While Naomi Watts delivers a strong performance, playing a character with convictions about marriage, Kate Hudson's character is less principled and portrays a sort of simple-minded woman who's curious about having an affair with a married man and pursues it despite awkward family ties.
