    SORRY, SALLY. I didn't like it. I really didn't like it.

    Spoof both of P.I.s and independent filmmakers is languidly paced and not very funny.

    In tackling 1000 A.D., (McTiernan)'s suddenly an unwieldy, clunky filmmaker.

    The intention is there, but the needed emotional maturity isn't.

    No amount of excellent period costuming and brilliant set decoration can substitute for a good story and decent acting.

    It's downright boring.

    Not much of a plot, but the trouble is that Shana Larsen's script, as directed by Risa Bramon Garcia, isn't very deep. Worse, none of the self-absorbed characters are that likable nor are they funny.

    A downright dumb movie that, with its breathless pace, lack of character development and uninventive gags, might be torture for even the kids to sit through.

    Quickly degenerates into a grueling piece of unpleasantness.

    Dead Man on Campus, a supposed black comedy produced by MTV, is simply awful.

    It's also troublesome that Murphy, a generally charismatic actor, is downright dull here. He and Goldblum are curiously flat in their line readings; they don't seem convinced by the story they're asked to act out, and with good reason.

    It's simply terrible.

    The best that can be said about this film is that it's watchable, and that's not the way it could or should be.

    What we get are quirky characters who are such cartoons that they undermine the effectiveness of the scare scenes (Brad Dourif's turn as the weird doctor is an example) and well-composed camera angles that mean nothing.

    A terribly bad movie, one of the worst of its kind in recent years.

    If only director Luis Llosa and his cast could see the joke and seize upon it; instead, like its computer-morphed snake, the film doesn't have a clever bone in its body.
