    • 33 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    So resoundingly awful, there may be grounds to sue for mental suffering.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Brain-numbingly innocuous, cliche-soused melodrama.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    I watched Mona. I felt like drowning.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    A pretty dreary affair to sit through. It's not even scary.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    The movie isn't exactly providing entertaining escape. In fact, the only escape on your mind is going to be the exit door.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    All failed concept and misfired comedy.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Doesn't deserve the energy it takes to describe how bad it is.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    The movie's a floating longboat that ought to be ignited and pushed out to sea, Viking style.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    The projectors in the theater practically shut down with boredom.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    A third-rate love story.
    • 19 Metascore

    8MM
    In the uncertain zone between dumb and truly twisted lies 8MM, a movie that will baffle and disgust you in one disconcerting experience.

    A classic like this deserves to be unearthed! After all, this picture is likely to command a pedestal of its own at the local video store. Just check for shelves marked either "Sharon Stone" or "Staff's Worst Picks of 1999."

    It's depressing enough to sit through an unfunny comedy, but it's worse to watch Falk, Penn and Berg having to earn a living like this.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    So dull and awful, you actually wonder if this is some kind of Andy Kaufmanesque in-joke, a deliberate attempt to douse the spark that made the original film so enjoyable.
    • 9 Metascore

    Let's cut to the chase: We're talking "Ishtar of the Apes."
    • 22 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    A blundering cringefest, thanks to unintentionally laughable dialogue, hackneyed writing and uninspired direction.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    This movie pulls out so many bad-action-movie cliches, you wonder if this is a how-not-to primer.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    For about 10 minutes, it works.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    An uneven collection of bodily function jokes, facial gyrations, sexual jibes and pedestrian slapstick, Dumb and Dumber appears to have been conceived by the leading lugheads themselves.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    There are two distinctive features to the movie: the mind-numbingly banal plot as one chases another who chases another, and all the offensive material.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    I wouldn't want you to consider even renting this thing. It would only encourage another prequel, this time featuring two dumb toddlers who keep walking into doors and become great pals. Call it "Duh and Duh."
    • 23 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Insufferably cloying experience.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    It's too bad we don't have red, glowing DELETE buttons next to those soda cup holders. I could have done the world a favor.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Avoid this movie unless a) your child has refused to eat until you take him or her, or b) your house is being fumigated to kill an infestation of mosquitoes with the West Nile virus.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Don't even consider this when it hits the Blockbuster shelves of shame.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Screenwriter Lona Williams and director Michael Patrick Jann spare no attempt to show characters at their zaniest, wackiest or most grotesque. The effect is disconcerting. Is this light comedy or dark satire? It ends up being neither.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Feckless and crude without any particularly funny redeeming value. If there's anything more to this poor excuse of a movie than immediately meets the eye, I'll get back to you.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    In a sense, this is a horror film, worse than anything Andy Kaufman could dream up, in which Green tries to outgross himself.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    Not just a bad thriller but also a thing of pain.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Desson Thomson
    It is horrible. Time curls up and dies while this Hilary Duff vehicle wheels its weary, conventional way along.
