Another accounting office-mandated second sequel. But perhaps “sequel” is not the right term, since the first two were essentially the same, frat-friendly, retracing-our-drunken-steps movie. The bored-looking cast aside, this lazy, lame action/caper flick is completely unrelated to either of them. Giveaway: there’s no drinking, no bachelor party, no friggin’ hangover fer crissake… and no laughs ...

The invading Americans once banned anything related to traditional Hawaiian language and culture, but it is flourishing now, thanks to efforts such as the Kamehameha Schools Song Contest, in which thousands of students compete with songs written in the islands’ own language.

A rusty Mel Gibson takes a break from drunken anti-Semitism to make this disappointing, less-than-thrilling revenge thriller (his first film in eight years), adapting (cramming) a six-hour BBC miniseries into a single gloomy, poorly paced movie. The twenty-something daughter of a Boston cop is shotgunned on his front porch. The shooters are initially thought to ...

Indifferently directed hokum produced and written by M. Night Shyamalan has five thinly drawn characters trapped in a stalled elevator.

Little atmosphere or suspense for a stalled-elevator flick, it’s ...

The reason this flashy, witless, Michael Bay-produced action/adventure/romance/sci-fi/teen drama/superhero/monster movie manages to cram in so much is that it’s cobbled together from the best bits of a dozen better movies.

But (co-producer) George Clooney, acting against type, puts ...
