There's a beating heart beneath the cynical skin and spotty narrative.

Loser bucks the summer trend, proving that a little light romance is an appealing antidote to an overdose of testosterone and adrenaline.

The movie makes you want to root for it, but it still comes up just short.

The end notes of Loser are lame, and it is not encouraging when a college movie means 'aid,' but spells it 'aide.'

Loser boasts one of the all-time worst codas, with those overused, American Graffiti-inspired on-screen notes moralistically telling you the rotten things that ultimately happened to the rotten people.

Biggs, who will probably always be known as the pastry porker in American Pie, is so good he doesn't have to push for sympathy.
