    The Sitter is not only an atrocious shout-out to bad '80s comedies, it's also the kind of movie Jonah Hill should look at as a crass blast from his past.

    A dumb thriller starring Dennis Quaid as a weirdo mortician taunted by high school kids into revealing what he did with his wife and her lover years before - and look at the movies it rips off...

    Ridiculous and mannered, Loosies is light-fingered but heavy-handed.

    The acting and general schlockiness make "Friday the 13th" look like "Macbeth," but it's clear D'Onofrio just wants to hang out. And actually, a lot of the music is really good. Let's hope next time, he decides to make something like "The Commitments" instead.

    It would be easy to say that the final minutes of this mixed-up thriller make everything before it meaningless, but that would indicate the odd conclusion has meaning, too.

    Still, in movie terms, Warrior's Heart makes curling look like gladiatorial combat.

    Act of Valor is like watching the wrestlers in dramas produced by the WWE: They're great at what they do, but being in front of the camera isn't part of that.

    Appearances from Jeff Goldblum, Zach Galifianakis and John C. Reilly help some, but all the mincing from Heidecker and Wareheim, the wanna-be, gross-out humor and THE CONSTANT SCREAMING get tiring.

    It's an unfunny Spanish movie that worked best as a two-minute trailer.

    "Dopey" is too good a word for it.

    Directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger stage a few good action set pieces, but unlike the 1981 midnight movie classic it imitates, the blandly titled Lockout never busts out of its cheesy concept.

    The folksy shenanigans are well-intentioned but frankly interminable, with Kline's wry efficiency the best relief from all the yowling and whining.
    • 38 Metascore

    Director Mary Harron ("American Psycho") can do little with this bloodless drama.
    • 44 Metascore

    This wannabe Sherlockian thriller is like a night spent at Madame Tussauds, watching mannequins strangle other mannequins.
    • 55 Metascore

    Safe arrives filled with bombast and sneers but barely any thrills.
    • 41 Metascore

    It winds up just being annoying.

    Add two more stars here if zoning out to weirdo-dreamy, '80s public-access TV with a synthesizer soundtrack is your idea of midnight fun. Because this ambitious, but not uninteresting, failure has that in its DNA.

    What you don't expect is how bad almost all of it is.

    The charmless but harmless A Cat in Paris hits theaters yet doesn't enchant.

    Madagascar 3 can't upgrade its own shtick, becoming a craven example of a fast-buck, no-fun family film.

    As awful as most of That's My Boy is, it's sort of mesmerizing to see how Sandler - in a script credited to David Caspe - keeps his touchstones in place.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 20 Joe Neumaier
    This insipid mashup of history lesson and monster flick takes itself semi-seriously, which is truly deadly.
    • 31 Metascore

    This slovenly, self-indulgent riff on Charles Bukowski-like fringe-livers has all of the naked harshness of Bukowski with none of the poetry. At least Haas gives it a good shot.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Joe Neumaier
    A ghost-busting drama set in a world of mystics, mind-benders and various and sundry fake-psychic gobbledygook. But the weirdest thing is how all the fun gets lost in a bottom-drawer "X Files" story.

    Everything that goes around comes around, but the roundelay in 30 Beats comes off, well, a little square.

    There's something sadly poetic about a movie dealing with disappearing memories that vanishes from your mind while you watch it.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 20 Joe Neumaier
    Filled with enough clich├ęs to be broken up and sold in pieces as junk material.
    • 36 Metascore

    This comic drama tries too hard to serve up a slice of manic life, but Eisenberg, along with Tracy Morgan and Isiah Whitlock Jr. as the affable druggies, provides some spark.

    By the middle of the second hour, you'll be wishing a zombie would just chomp off your head to end the pain.

    It's the same-old flesh-chewing. Like vampires, this genre is getting deadly.
