    Boorish and flatulent.

    The deeply ridiculous 8 1/2 Women could have been made only by a cranky dotard.

    The Wayans brothers' new bottom-feeder signals its utter exhaustion -- and barely veiled contempt for the audience.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Dennis Lim
    A vanity project -- hell-bent on playing barely human characters as themselves, they've created something quitebewilderingly ugly in the process.

    Made with no discernible craft and monstrously sanctimonious in dealing with childhood loss, it might as well be called "Pray It Forward."

    As this clueless, bulimic debacle madly regurgitates ideas and iconography from Lang to the brothers Wachowski, Leni Riefenstahl to L. Ron Hubbard, Ray Bradbury to Susan Faludi, it's not just Bale who has a hard time keeping a straight face.

    The "Humanite" director's Death Valley void is the real "Lost in Translation."

    The film isn't short on ideas, it's just that those ideas are dumbfoundingly pretentious and trite.

    So seamlessly and comprehensively dreadful that its very existence (let alone its appearance in theaters) beggars belief.
    • 23 Metascore

    Superhumanly awful BBC bottom-feeder Love, Honour and Obey, which, paramount among its many faults, is not recognizably a film.

    A nasty piece of work, and it's nasty in a particularly ostentatious and sophomoric way.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 0 Dennis Lim
    One of the cruddiest-looking movies ever made.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 0 Dennis Lim
    At once laboriously expository and defiantly incomprehensible.
    • 18 Metascore

    The movie improves immeasurably if you visualize a looming iceberg in the corner of the frame.
    • 22 Metascore

    Stein's script is slack and tin-eared, too feeble to pass for satire, and inadequate even by lazy-pastiche standards.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 0 Dennis Lim
    An overflowing septic tank of chicken-soupy sanctimony that proceeds from casually offensive hypocrisy to wretchedly inapt religiosity.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 0 Dennis Lim
    The year's most repugnant movie.
