My Dead Boyfriend (2016)

"A mixture of misplaced gallows humor, wildly over-the-top caricatures and a gimmicky use of animation." ‐RogerEbert.com

Aquarius (2016)

"It may feel like it drags a bit in the middle, but Aquarius has so many individual moments of grace that it rewards you for sticking around." ‐RogerEbert.com

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

"The latest from Tim Burton would seem tailor-made for his tastes but it's a convoluted slog, dense in mythology and explanatory dialogue but woefully lacking in thrills." ‐RogerEbert.com

Storks (2016)

"Zippy and zany, cute and cuddly, Storks manages to balance wild humor with winning heart-for the most part." ‐RogerEbert.com

Other People (2016)

""Other People" breathes new life into the formulaic, dark comedy about death." ‐RogerEbert.com

The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016)

"Either you'll be willing to go with some of its wilder visual conceits or you won't. (I was, for the most part.)" ‐RogerEbert.com

Hands of Stone (2016)

"In trying to encompass way too much, Hands of Stone ends up feeling superficial and unsatisfying." ‐RogerEbert.com

Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)

"It's a classic hero's journey full of action and adventure, but it's also an intimate fable about love and loss, magic and memory." ‐RogerEbert.com

Joshy (2016)

Bad Moms (2016)

"Even when things soften and turn sweet toward the end-including an unexpectedly emotional segment during the closing credits that I will not spoil for you-Bad Moms retains an appealing wrongness. " ‐RogerEbert.com

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

"It is an incredibly simple yet irresistible idea for a movie. It's also exactly what you think it's going to be - no more, no less." ‐ChristyLemire.com

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

"It hammers us over the head with the same handful of jokes in the hopes of beating us into submission. And it strains the screen appeal of a group of actors who normally are enormously likable." ‐RogerEbert.com

The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016)

"Veteran French director Anne Fontaine approaches a spiritually and emotionally complex real-life slice of history with deftness and understated drama in "The Innocents."" ‐RogerEbert.com

Finding Dory (2016)

"It's gorgeous. It's lively. It's got terrific performances from a strong voice cast. It's emotionally affecting without being heavy-handed." ‐ChristyLemire.com

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

"It's just dull and hollow-a massive waste of time and money." ‐RogerEbert.com

The Do-Over (2016)

"Typical Adam Sandler fare in every way, from the raunchy humor to the inclusion of his buddies to the deplorable view of women to the vacation disguised as a movie shoot to the forced sentimentality in the final act." ‐ChristyLemire.com

Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2016)

"Husson captures the restless rhythms of adolescence-the push-pull of angst and boredom, of self-consciousness and the yearning to lose oneself completely." ‐RogerEbert.com

Urge (2016)

"A movie that's as empty and unlikable as the characters themselves." ‐RogerEbert.com

The Ones Below (2016)

"Even as events turn more than a tad preposterous with twists that seem not just predictable but inevitable, Farr keeps a handle on the tension and tone, which keeps us hooked." ‐RogerEbert.com

The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016)

"The musical elements of the film aren't even the most compelling parts. They're actually surprisingly cheesy." ‐RogerEbert.com

Maggie's Plan (2016)

"Miller offers a vivid snapshot of a niche segment of New York. ... She truly gets the city's rhythms and idiosyncrasies, and her dialogue frequently sparkles." ‐RogerEbert.com

Money Monster (2016)

"Jodie Foster has directed a real-time drama that's lean, efficient and benefits from the enormous charisma of George Clooney in the starring role as a slick, smug financial pundit." ‐RogerEbert.com

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"The fact that a Marvel movie dares to question the big, shiny spectacle that is its bread and butter - and acknowledge that untold thousands die in the name of entertainment - seems rather novel. " ‐ChristyLemire.com

A Bigger Splash (2016)

"Simultaneously lush and lurid, sumptuous and startling, "A Bigger Splash" never goes where you expect, even as its undercurrent of danger is unmistakable from the start." ‐RogerEbert.com

Mother's Day (2016)

"Mother's Day might be trying to show how diverse and progressive it is in representing every kind of family, but it's a laugh track away from Three's Company levels of subterfuge." ‐ChristyLemire.com

Meet the Blacks (2016)

"The movie as a whole is such an incompetent train wreck, you can't look away, just to see how much worse it can get." ‐RogerEbert.com

Kill Your Friends (2016)

"Everyone is horrible all the time-so when they do horrible things to each other, the result is a chuckle rather than a vicious bite. The music business is cutthroat, we get it." ‐RogerEbert.com

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016)

"Gags get piled upon gags with relentless frenzy and results that are overbearing rather than uproarious. You can rely on every character to behave the exactly the same way every time, regardless of the situation, and that way is usually obnoxious." ‐RogerEbert.com

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016)

"A nightmarish landscape that's meant to be frightening - or at least unsettling - ends up being hilariously cheesy instead." ‐ChristyLemire.com

The Other Side of the Door (2016)

Eddie The Eagle (2016)

"It's a shame that a movie about a man with zero athletic ability, who had the fearlessness to attempt a perilous 90-meter ski jump for the first time ever in front of a rapt Olympic audience, takes no chances." ‐RogerEbert.com

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

"So vividly immersive is Kung Fu Panda 3 - so vibrant, so tactile - it will make you feel as if you've stepped into a fully realized world. And then once you've stepped out, you'll be craving dumplings." ‐ChristyLemire.com

How To Be Single (2016)

"Think of "How to Be Single" as a cinematic Whitman's Sampler: There are enough pieces that work to offset the pieces that don't." ‐RogerEbert.com

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

"Maybe someone else can crack the code to the ultimate Austen mash-up when the inevitable "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" adaption comes along." ‐RogerEbert.com
