  • It's not just hard to believe any of this, it's impossible. And director Jon Turteltaub (Phenomenom) directs with robotic cheerlessness. show more

  • Disney's National Treasure is supposed to be family-friendly, a PG-rated action adventure free of hard violence and bad language. That's admirable, to be sure, but with a friend like this a family doesn't need sleeping pills.

  • An undeniable pleasure of National Treasure was watching a movie shot locally that wasn't haunted by a virus or by dead people. show more
