    There are no survivors here.

    When you watch this failed horror thriller -- which has been under studio doctors' care for some two years, undergoing futile title changes and reshoots -- there's no respite from the odor of flop sweat stinking up the screen.

    The few jaunty, ''Friends''-inflected lines Perry does get off are lost among the cow pies.

    Had the ghost of Paul Lynde swanned by in a caftan-clad cameo, you couldn't find a more outdated, miscalculated collection of stale, queen-size stereotypes than those trotted out on this ship of fools.

    A stinker, the more so for the thespian excesses of the accomplished cast.

    Abysmally stupid drama.

    A creepy, humiliating ''comedy,'' playing to Bullock's worst instincts for demonstrating the lovability of women who don’t fit in.

    Silly, undone by lack of faith in its own subject.

    The film squanders every opportunity (and international-coproduction cent) on by now imitative Nine Inch Nails-video-style visual Goth-goo, and, scarily, forgets to input a plot or script that makes any sense.

    A desert of shrill juvenile jokes and clanging chase sequences.

    Sends comedy backward in time, and we're in the 1970s, ethno-sitcom style: These Andersons in their out-of-date white, snooty gated community apparently confuse themselves with their forebears on The Jeffersons.

    Terminal colon cancer has never looked more fetching than in the critically ill romantic-disease comedy A Little Bit of Heaven.

    Processed comedy chop suey.

    Isn't a movie, it's Gorgonzola, a crumbly summertime stinker veined with pop-cultural fungus.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 16 Lisa Schwarzbaum
    An awful, stillborn comedy assembled out of rusty spare parts from secret agent movies and run-of-the-mill ''Saturday Night Live'' skits.
    • 11 Metascore

    Empty jokes hang heavy.
