    The special effects are variable, but even when they're good they don't have much impact because Evolution, with its self-trashing spirit, turns moviegoers into bemused bysitters.

    This unevenly paced comedy is an amusing parody of monster movies from "Them!" to "Alien." show more

    It's not good, but it's nowhere near as bad as most recent comedies; it has real laughs, but it misses real opportunities. show more
