    If The Cell were six minutes long it would blow your mind. At two hours, it's a disordered muddle of hellacious highs and pedestrian lows.

    Cohen had neither the chops nor the clout to prevent Get Hard from ending up, no doubt through the normal process of producer rewrites, focus groups, worried agents and weevil infestations, as a confused and contradictory mess. More to the point, it’s almost never funny, and full of elementary screenwriting blunders.

    I've never seen anything crazier than Palindromes. You can read that as praise if you're that sort of person, but I don't mean it that way.

    Can someone explain what Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman are doing in a chaotic and sadistic home-invasion thriller, shot in digital colors so radioactive they appear to have leaked out of the Fukushima nuclear plant?

    Saw 3-D is in 3-D. Really, really bad 3-D.

    A Garry Marshall movie has to be funny in order to be anything at all, and this one is so deeply involved with its pseudo-meaningful roundelay of beautiful but inexplicably lovelorn people as to be teeth-grindingly, mind-warpingly boring.

    How do you screw up a family movie that has a cute bull mastiff, a cute 6-year-old and David Arquette playing a mailman? Apparently by unleashing half a dozen writers to gnaw it to pieces and entrusting the result to a TV director (John Whitesell of "Cosby" and "Roseanne") with little sense of how to tell a story longer than six minutes.

    J. Edgar turns out to be one of the worst ideas anybody's ever had, a mendacious, muddled, sub-mediocre mess that turns some of the most explosive episodes of the 20th century into bad domestic melodrama and refuses to take any clear position on one of American history's most controversial figures.

    Disposable crap.

    I felt like dropping to my knees in the theater and praying for this smug, irritating fake-reality-TV show to go away, leaving these three terrific actors (and characters) in something resembling a real movie.

    One could and perhaps should use scare quotes around "intellectual" when it comes to someone who would crank out a piece of campaign-season partisan hackwork this crude and sloppy. (By this standard, James Carville looks like Immanuel Kant.)

    The guys abuse each other in what's meant to be fraternal affection but feels more like the discomfort of being stuck together in a terrible movie.

    With Men, Women & Children and the equally laborious “Labor Day,” Reitman has gotten trapped amid the crumbling edifice of Hollywood. It’s turning him old before his time.

    Indeed, this movie's offensive on many levels, but Arabs and Muslims don't get to feel special. It relies on stupid stereotypes because it's a stupid movie that's offensive to virtually everyone.

    Let's be real clear about this: You've got to be suffering from some major trash-culture brain damage to enjoy a movie like Ready to Rumble.

    Startlingly inept from start to finish -- it's atrociously written, poorly shot and edited and fatally unfocused.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    This one's a pile of crap that won't start.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    The movie is terrible, but made with verve and sincerity, all of it pointed in the wrong direction.
    • 15 Metascore

    There's nothing scarier than a group of hormone-crazed 20-somethings, but this sequel isn't much more than a footnote of a footnote.

    This awkward fable of ghetto redemption mixes painfully earnest message-delivery with occasional scenes of brutal violence.

    Gingival surgery would be more fun than watching this brain-draining, spirit-sucking attempt at a stoner spoof, which combines the cutting edge of frat-boy wit, the excitement of a mid-'80s made-for-TV action flick and the authenticity of a Renaissance Faire held in an abandoned field behind a Courtyard by Marriott.

    A lugubrious sub-"Exorcist" demonic possession film that's absolutely no fun at all.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    This fantasy crap, fake-o effects and all, betrays princes of dice, masters of graph and wielders of bong.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    A stodgy, moribund plodder loaded with stock characters that wouldn’t have felt edgy in 1983 and has about the same contemporary urgency as your average late-night rerun of “CSI: NY.”
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    A fourth-rate Hollywood thriller that bungles a lot of thievery from better movies, is entirely bereft of suspense or excitement and features a leading man who absolutely, positively cannot act.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    Classic Rudolph: a tone of sweet-edged, slightly kooky melancholy, a terrific cast mostly left to its own devices and a few intriguing moments. Not, I'm sorry to say, a movie.

    They kill me, these guys. No, seriously. If they make any more of these movies, they might as well kill me.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    A dumb and sloppy movie.
    • 37 Metascore

    Inside of five minutes I felt an urgent, blinding hatred for almost all its grotesquely overprivileged characters.

    The misanthropic nadir of the director's crash-and-burn career.
