"My Uncle Rafael" elicits plenty of goofy chuckles even as it regularly threatens to fly off the rails.

A hokey story with a needless reality-show overlay.

Top Critic

An insufferable import indebted to Mrs. Doubtfire in which a man in prosthetics helps a family cope with, and overcome, divorce.

For anyone who has the bad luck to see this vanity production, it will be remembered as one of the worst films of the year--if not the decade.
