Sahara (2005)

Stultifying summer-season reject in which boats race and stuff goes boom and Penelope Cruz looks like she needs a sandwich. To its credit, the film is unpretentious and fairly aware of its own silliness, and no movie with Steve Zahn can be all bad. In fact, he and Matthew McConaughey have a striking rapport which goes a long way towards turning this into something other than it is. But then the plot takes over and stuff goes boom and the damn thing just refuses to end. Thankfully not as crappy as it could have been, but still bloated and unnecessary.

Grade: C
