    Everything else here – from the gross caricatures to the so-called comic mayhem – is sour to taste.

    I’m in Love With a Church Girl is not unambitious: It crams into its two hours terminal illness, money laundering, a DEA sting, clubbing, a prolonged coma, and lots of Bible study. But the action – punishingly turgid, spread-it-on-a-cracker cheesy – feels inauthentic, ginned up only to promote the film’s come-to-Jesus messaging, and to call the acting amateurish does a disservice to hard-working amateurs everywhere.

    Appallingly bad stuff.
    • 41 Metascore

    Vacant and pointless.

    The politest way to assess Spike Lee's latest polemic is to call it too ambitious. "An unholy mess" might come closer to the truth.

    It's all infuriatingly simplistic, and the performances help matters little. Quinn and McTeer are wholly uncompelling.

    The only actors who walk away unscathed are Kattan -- the best thing in a very bad movie -- and former cover girl Shaw.

    In his English-language debut, Wirkola dabbles in everything but commits to nothing, making for an unmemorable brew best left untasted.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 11 Kimberley Jones
    Some things are best left undiscovered.

    Indeed, the largely computer-generated Jack acts the pants off his co-stars, which can and should be taken with a whole trough full of salt.

    Wretched. And while the dirtiest, low-rottenest part of me wouldn’t mind watching the institution of Ben/Jen get reamed, the heft of the blame should be shouldered by Hollywood vet Martin Brest, who wrote an incoherent, incompetent script and further mangled it with his direction.

    Flaccid, endlessly irksome coming-of-age drama.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 11 Kimberley Jones
    Though the three leads are all likable performers, their lunkheaded characters are as thinly drawn as their cartoon counterparts, and the supporting cast is littered with one racial stereotype after another.

    Little Black Book isn't your run-of-the-mill romantic comedy – it's much worse – and, rather disgustingly, the devils on earth it unmasks are all female and vindictive.
    • 46 Metascore

    No film that requires a woman to jump in water and dogpaddle toward a man has the "sisterhood's" best interests at heart.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 11 Kimberley Jones
    About as humorless – and joyless – as they come.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 11 Kimberley Jones
    The script's tone veers chaotically -- and ambitiously -- at once aiming for a Noel Coward kind of elegant sparring, then for the lightly raunchy, rompy absurdism of "What's New, Pussycat?"

    Already hobbled by an overwrought story that turns positively Hallmark-Movie-preposterous in its third act, journeyman director Michael Hoffman (Soapdish, The Last Station) can’t conceive of a single memorable set-piece or rouse his actors into action. By the time Marsden’s character has very polite sex with the love of his life with his pants still on, I was done.

    It's hard to decide what rankles most: what an astonishing monument to Shadyac's self-absorption I Am is, or how flat-out bad – incompetent, even – the filmmaking is.

    By eliminating the winking, broad strokes of the filmmakers' more successful spoofs, they've made a film that is not only dumb, but dull. It's like watching a snuff film, only it's the audience who's dying inside.

    Astonishingly dull. The leads have zero chemistry, the supporting actors are even worse, and the script is a lifeless, draggy thing.
    • 27 Metascore

    It's not particularly fun, or funny, for starters.

    It's cheap and it's lowdown, and to those responsible for this exercise in devolution: Honestly, I'm not sure I want to know someone like you.

    Hey, guys, when you repurpose a disco hit to poke fun at gay men, not only do you look like assholes, you look like assholes who rip their jokes off of YouTube.

    What’s most dispiriting about this garbage burger is its nonsensical characterization of Blart himself.

    With all the wrong Stealing Harvard has done, it at least bestows one gift upon its audience: the gift of forgettableness.

    Hall Pass has half the right idea: Scratch out "Hall," and just … pass.

    I'd be hard-pressed to name another recent film so deeply noxious, soul-sick, and unfunny.

    Jovovich, who's shown sensitivity in her dramatic work, looks spectacularly bored as she power-kicks her way through one bloody pile-up after another. That boredom, like the mystery virus at the center of the film, is contagious.

    I'm not gonna sugarcoat this: Movies don't have to be this bad.
