T-Meter Title | Year
47% Lake Placid (1999) The lazy finale makes Lake Placid seem more marginal and forgettable than it already was, which is actually something of a feat. - AV Club EDIT

100% Hari Kondabolu: Warn Your Relatives (2018) He mixes a lot of topical and political humor with goofy stand up, observational humor... but then it's funny. - NPR EDIT

81% X-Men (2000) The script could be a lot snappier, particularly during some virtually unexplained rivalry banter between Marsden and Jackman, but X-Men is a decent start to what will no doubt be an immensely profitable series of negligible but enjoyable summer movies. - AV Club EDIT

92% Men in Black (1997) Men In Black deserves credit for supplementing its special effects with a breezy script and genuinely charismatic performances by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. - AV Club EDIT

40% Can't Hardly Wait (1998) The film deserves credit, both for its breezy pacing and its uncommon tendency to make its characters smarter and geekier than they might have been. - AV Club EDIT

48% My Fellow Americans (1996) Garner and Jack Lemmon have enough charisma, and there are enough solid laughs, to mostly overcome My Fellow Americans' embarrassing moments and improbable ending. - AV Club EDIT

4% Speed 2 - Cruise Control (1997) Speed cost something like $30 million; this sequel cost four times as much. So why is it such a feeble, aimless piece of junk in comparison? - AV Club EDIT

68% The Crucible (1996) Arthur Miller's screenplay keeps everything nice and faithful to the period, and the actors have the dirt on their hands to prove it. The movie lacks polish as well, and that's to everyone's benefit. - AV Club EDIT

100% Toy Story 2 (1999) A technical marvel that's packed to the margins with details and tricks, pathos and inside jokes, Toy Story 2 fulfills the immense promise of its predecessor where it might have diminished its charms. - AV Club EDIT
