    A deadly dull and overly familiar movie about summoning ghosts that draws upon nearly every horror movie cliché.
    • 17 Metascore

    This may be the most preposterous movie of the year. It is certainly the most ridiculous movie starring an Oscar-winning actor.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    This is the worst kind of movie, one that insults its audience by purporting to condemn violence while simultaneously reveling in it.

    Saw V is a terrible combination: grisly and tedious. Let's just call it bloody dull.

    The film tries to be stylish and slick, but is mostly just nasty and blood-drenched. Piven, so funny in other film roles and on TV's "Entourage," overdoes it here, and extended scenes of his debauchery grow excessive and thuddingly dull.

    That's what The Bounty Hunter has rustled up -- along with a listless rom-com, a feeble thriller and a supporting cast of clueless characters.

    It's really not much fun - in fact it's painful - to watch an actor on the verge of a nervous breakdown. It almost doesn't matter if the psyche in question is imploding artificially - as in staged - or organically.

    The unfunny jokes center on outhouses, vomit and flatulence. Gooding mugs, screeches, even hops up and down to no avail. Nothing can wring an ounce of comedy out of this sorry spectacle.

    This ill-conceived sequel to 2011's entertaining Horrible Bosses is base, moronic, insulting and vulgar. It's also cringingly unfunny.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    What audiences should expect is a tone-deaf, superficial, charmless ensemble rom-com, focused on five attractive, but uninteresting, couples.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    An embarrassing debacle...the rare movie that never seems to take off, but also never seems to end. It tries hard to titillate, but ends up making audiences want to avert their eyes.

    As forewarned, so avoid.

    Bride Wars is about as funny as a cringingly awkward wedding toast.

    Insidious: Chapter 2 appears to be the sum of the unusable parts from James Wan's recent haunted house feature "The Conjuring."
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    As if this drivel weren't bad enough, the ending blatantly threatens a sequel
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    Not only is it an unfunny movie shrilly told, it probably is the most ill-timed and appallingly insulting movie in recent memory.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    Antichrist is probably the most disturbing, bleak and self-indulgent film ever made.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    Shocking is the fact that three highly regarded actors -- Kim Basinger, Mickey Rourke and Billy Bob Thornton -- chose to star in this dreadful film.
    • 33 Metascore

    In this Amityville, the performances are bad, the special effects ho-hum, and it's not even particularly scary.
    • 36 Metascore

    A tribute to a giant leap for mankind feels like a clumsy shuffle backward for animation.

    White Noise is the celluloid equivalent of a bad cell phone connection.
    • 42 Metascore

    Neither side is worth rooting for in this ridiculous blood feud, which features some of the year's most laughable dialogue.

    Even as temporary visitors, the audience can feel IQ points slipping away.

    Should the desire to see a clever zombie movie strike, try the recent remake of "Dawn of the Dead" or last year's "28 Days."

    School for Scoundrels will only leave you scratching your head in bewilderment and might possibly shave off IQ points.

    For a comedian (Allen) who often seems to be calling it in, he's more lackluster than usual. Curtis is a bigger disappointment, especially after "Freaky Friday," in which she was funny, smart and cheeky.

    Despite its appealing stars, The Ugly Truth is a charmless romantic comedy.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    In most cases, doggedly pursuing a dream is laudable. But if it does nothing else, The Astronaut Farmer demonstrates that not every dream is worth pursuing. At least not the belabored one of a narcissistic crackpot masquerading as an admirable dreamer.

    A movie about a teen party gone horribly wrong, would be every parent's worst nightmare if it weren't so inane.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Claudia Puig
    That a group of creative people chose to direct their energies on this repulsive spectacle simply provokes disgust.
