    In trying to avoid moralizing or cheap sensationalizing, Didier sidestepped any energy force altogether and his film snoozes because of it.

    Derivative, cliché-ridden and old hat.

    The film isn't very good. The Million Dollar Hotel is an uneasy melding of Hollywood shtick and art-house sensibilities.

    The humor is, at best, thudding. At its worst, it's breathtakingly stupid and offensive.

    Hopefully, the next time around, Chadha's imagination will be in the service of not just excellent casting and directing, but a script to match those other cinematic components.

    Afailed attempt at a hipster screwball comedy. Very failed.

    An often gorgeous, dizzying assault of ideas and visual flourishes...it's just not very good.

    What really makes the film fall dead (although the preview audience I saw it with howled from beginning to end) are the actors and the way the characters have been scripted.

    Appalling because it never transcends its adolescent-boy glee at being allowed entry to the highly sexualized arena of prostitution.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 30 Ernest Hardy
    Too self-consciously dark, too aware of its long, murky, art-designed descent into the underbelly of America's addictive personality.

    Pandering and tired, Down to Earth lurches from one dead gag to the other, in search of both comedic rhythm and a dramatic pulse. It finds neither.

    If you're already a huge fan of any of these artists, this film will be a lovefest. For all others, it's a mild diversion at best.

    Doesn't even rise to the level of camp, of being so-bad-it's-good. It's just flat out bad.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Ernest Hardy
    Not a very good movie; it's sentimental, pandering and psychologically anorexic.

    In the end, Butterfly is an infuriating film because it's so very contrived, so annoyingly phony.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Ernest Hardy
    A crap film that's steeped in liberal paranoia, but it's also so ludicrous that it falls under the guilty-pleasure category.
    • 34 Metascore

    15 Minutes is simply a bad movie.
    • 17 Metascore

    Far from the worst film this summer, but it also doesn't rate strong enough to be a future video rental.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Ernest Hardy
    It's little more than a loose assemblage of Hollywood action movie formulas: "Dirty Harry" and assorted cop/buddy flicks are the clear models for the movie.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 10 Ernest Hardy
    Horribly slapdash affair.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 10 Ernest Hardy
    Lost its chance to be anything but an endurance test for the viewer.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 10 Ernest Hardy
    Flawed at its very core.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 10 Ernest Hardy
    Almost unbearable.
    • 39 Metascore

    Atrocious bit of by-the-numbers screen filler. And anyone who easily lapses into sugar comas is advised to stay far, far away.
