    An insult to the memory of the cleverly written show and its celebration of friendship, it's a slap in the face for the four gal pals (often photographed at unflattering angles) and an affront to Muslims.

    There's nothing exciting about this awful, over-the-top reboot.

    The opening frame of Jonah Hex should say: "Caution: Made expressly for the male teen demographic. Not suitable for anyone of any age who prefers movies with coherence, an original plot or characters they give a hoot about."

    Killers is dead on arrival: miscast, horribly paced and murderously uninvolving.

    The movie is a clunky, noisy contraption. Director Jon Turteltaub piles on gadgets and devices in the hopes we'll be dazzled enough to miss the story's lack of coherence and charm.

    Sadistic mess of a movie.

    The Romantics is a misnomer. "The Spoiled Melodramatics" would be more accurate. Or better yet, "The Pretentious Ones."

    Barrels around in manic fashion much like Carrey does in most of his movies. He's meant to be a fool for love, but mostly he's just bonkers.

    Kimberly Elise gives the best performance as a beleaguered woman with an abusive boyfriend (Michael Ealy).

    Who had the lamebrained idea for a post-apocalyptic 3-D Nutcracker that is lacking any trace of ballet?

    Yogi Bear is a big boo-boo.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Trying to decipher all the convoluted pathways could drive you mad. Mostly, though, it is so ludicrous that it will unintentionally inspire laughter.
    • 45 Metascore

    It's almost impressive when a movie can manage to be both repellently vulgar and sickeningly sweet in the span of a mere two hours. Almost.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    It's dogged by awkward dialogue, a ridiculous plot and lackluster performances, especially by the leads.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Everything about this fish-out-of-water romp is tired.
    • 50 Metascore

    Here's a by-the-playbook movie if ever there was one.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Bonds are tested and feelings hurt, but who really cares? The story takes predictable turns, embraces clichés and dodges all humor.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Though the lead actress, newcomer Jordana Beatty, gives a spunky performance as third-grader Judy, her character's borderline bratty charm wears thin fast. Mostly it's undercut by the movie's irritatingly antic slapstick style.

    For a movie that touts the importance of humanity, Green Lantern is a strangely lifeless spectacle.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Misanthropic to the extreme, Bad Teacher fails across the board.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Filled with laughable dialogue, Abduction goes nowhere.
    • 43 Metascore

    Machine Gun Preacher has a lot more wrong with it than a bullet-riddled premise. It is yet another iteration of the big, strong white man who comes to save legions of poor anonymous black Africans.

    Maybe for the next installment, they can go off to college and find something better to do than making these silly movies.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    More often the film succumbs to clichés, grows convoluted and outlandish, and winds up dead on arrival.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    The concept is unoriginal, the scenarios aren't funny, and its message is banal. Plus, Murphy alternately hams it up and phones it in.

    Somewhere amid the mind-numbing barrage of action sequences there's a story based on Greek mythology. But its essence is buried amid the clatter.

    Despite an unlikely setting and a moderately intriguing premise, Chernobyl Diaries proves to be a generic horror flick where young tourists are systematically victimized in unoriginal and not terribly scary ways.
    • 47 Metascore

    Don't stop believing. Just avoid clichéd musicals that try to capture the anarchic spirit of rock with trite commercial re-treads.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Claudia Puig
    Talented actors are wasted in a film that induces more cringes than chuckles as women old enough to know better act like horny sailors on leave, absorb mass quantities of alcohol and drugs, and generally behave horribly.
    • 37 Metascore

    Fun is hiding behind a bad movie costume in this humorless and idiotic Halloween teen comedy.
