    The good news is that Ed Helms doesn’t wake up in a Tijuana brothel with an amputated leg and a donkey in the room. The bad news is that you’ll wish he had.

    Cinderella is so scrubbed of personality, it’s not even worth calling a mess.

    Disney’s gimmick of naming movies for its theme-park attractions crashes and burns in Tomorrowland, a here-and-now caper that will confuse children, bore adults and offend anyone who’s ever taken a science class.

    A bland family-feud potboiler with no sign of the cook.

    A soulless, overblown bore.

    Suffering through this felonious farce could only inspire a prison riot.

    Where the original play "La Ronde" was a social satire about the transmission of venereal disease, 30 Beats is a sickly stepchild.

    For anyone expecting the second coming of Clouseau, Johnny English Reborn is a karmic catastrophe.

    On Stranger Tides has the fishy smell of something washed ashore and sold as new. But this shipwreck isn't worth a wooden doubloon.

    So stupid and hateful, it needs to have a stake driven through its heart before it can spawn a franchise.

    As in the first "Sherlock Holmes" movie, there are plenty of pratfalls and bare-knuckle brawls but no sleuthing for us to share.

    The spectacular collapse of Green Lantern is bound to be blamed on Reynolds, but the villainy has its origins in an injustice league of TV-trained screenwriters and tin-hearted studio suits.

    Long before you’ve gotten a nickel’s worth of entertainment out of this dumb, unfunny flick, you’ll be wishing for the flashing sign that says “Game over.”

    In Secret is so stifled, it makes “Les Misérables” look like “Amélie.”

    It’s nearly tragic to see America’s Greatest Living Actor on the guest list for The Big Wedding, the latest limp comedy about seniors behaving badly.

    Old Dogs is so oafish, when it tosses us a biscuit, it feels like we've been smacked with a newspaper.
    • 41 Metascore

    Dare we say it? Even the acting is atrocious, with pop-eyed Pacino chewing the scenery like a geezer gumming his oatmeal.

    Spy
    With the overlong, limp and lazy Spy, Feig has lost his mojo.

    Channing Tatum is a lot of things, but he’s not a stoic Superman like the role he plays here, which is made more laughable by prosthetic pointy ears.

    Offers about as much flava as a Dr. Pepper commercial and about as much drama as a “Sesame Street” rerun.

    • 38 Joe Williams
    While the cast includes Luis Guzman (as a buffoonish deputy) and Johnny Knoxville (as a local gun nut), there's no sense that these are real people in a real town, and Schwarzenegger's Sheriff Owens has the weakest backstory of all.

    This movie is so tone-deaf it would only make sense in Vincent van Gogh’s missing ear.

    Nobody escapes unscathed, except, of course, for Sandler, who co-wrote the infantile screenplay.

    A toxic potion that will put children to sleep and kill his (M. Night Shyamalan) career.

    If you’re a fan of the “Taken” movies and tend to give action-hero Neeson the benefit of the doubt, our advice here is simple: Run away!

    Even by the sloppy, soulless standards of hit man movies, The Mechanic is a mess.

    For the rest of his life, Spencer Susser can brag to the other ditch diggers that he persuaded two of the best young actors in Hollywood to star in one of the worst movies ever made.

    Formulaic serial-killer crapola.

    "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," we owe you an apology. Among talking-dog movies, Marmaduke is the runt of the litter.
    • 29 Metascore

    Sparks would be delighted if this movie were compared to his other story about reunited lovers, but compared to “The Notebook,” The Best of Me is the coffee-stained outline of a sales pitch for sleeping pills.
