    While Kaminski understands that movie terror comes in at the eyes, he has little skill for connecting sensation to hearts and minds.

    A flimsy premise to begin with, it’s been punctured beyond repair by an amateur script from Bill Kelly and director Hugh Wilson (The First Wives Club), and by Wilson’s shocking ineptitude with dialogue, framing and pace.

    Too much of a mess to say anything with assurance, pieced together as it is from mismatched institutional movies such as "Cool Hand Luke" and "Shock Corridor" -- with "Lord of the Flies" thrown in for good measure -- and turning on plot points that simply don't wash.

    Long-shelved 2001 clunker.

    Written in 60 Seconds would be a more appropriate title.

    To call the film contrived would imply that some sort of effort had been made, when Sweet Home Alabama is nothing but dead lazy and slow — y'all.

    And like, the movie's got all these bright colors and shit, so it's not some fuckin' boring art film, and the new wave soundtrack is awesome.

    Won't be of much value to anyone besides die-hard Cubs fans or the Santo family itself.

    The uneasy meeting of cultures is mirrored all too well in the stiff and clumsy direction.

    Tiresome vanity project.

    What could have been a fascinating exploration of geographical mayhem becomes instead an exercise in tedium.
    • 24 Metascore

    Sandler is -- à la "The Wedding Singer" -- in his washout romantic mode here, and no amount of spastic-colon jokes, cartoon violence or good-buddy cameos (Al Sharpton, John McEnroe) can distract from the fact that Gary Cooper he ain't.

    This feeble remake offers little more than two pretty and willing leads who nonetheless can't hide their embarrassment over being set up as distractions to hide the film's thorough lack of coherence and appeal.
    • 45 Metascore

    Directed by Donald Petrie ("Miss Congeniality") with about as much substance and style as a ham sandwich. It's a heavy hand that damps down such airy creatures as Hudson and McConaughey.
    • 21 Metascore

    It's noisy, it's flashy, and it's deadly dull -- without the goofball, horror-nerd energy of Kevin Williamson, who wrote the first film, this essentially storyless picture, written by Trey Callaway and directed by Danny Gan-non, revolves doggedly around Hewitt's tits.

    It's bad enough that Australian writer-director Pip Karmel feels she must attempt the alternate-reality gimmick.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Hazel-Dawn Dumpert
    Writer-director Jon Gunn and co-writer John W. Mann can't fashion a meaningful parable from their knot of dangling plotlines and absurd scenarios.

    There are gruelingly unfunny gags, an unspeakable soundtrack featuring BTO and Billy Ocean, and Victoria's Secret mannequin Heidi Klum as a model who demands that her pussy hair be styled into a bushy red heart.

    Airless, joyless, worse than you could even imagine.

    Shrill and gloomy.

    A work of top-shelf schlock.

    Since neither (Chapelle nor Koontz) seems to have any idea as to how to make an actual movie, they abandon form and reason and throw every stock trick in the book at the screen to see what sticks. And what sticks is the murky goo of storytelling gone bad.

    Oxymoronic musings of a vain country singer.

    Could it get any worse?

    It's cynical and it's depressing, and I would lock a child in a room before I'd show him Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.
