    The MPAA's rating explanation for this PG-13-rated snoozer misleadingly claims it contains "intense sequences of terror/violence"; it would be more accurate to state that Boogeyman contains "virtually every horror-movie cliché of the past 30 years."

    Plays like an unwieldy mishmash of "Big Momma's House," "An Unmarried Woman" and "The Burning Bed," with lots of gospel music thrown in.

    If the once red-hot Vin Diesel's overhyped career wasn't finished off by last summer's mega flop "The Chronicles of Riddick," the alleged family comedy The Pacifier ought to do the trick.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A flaccidly pretentious and snooze-inducing trilogy of allegedly racy tales.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A bland, dull and only occasionally funny waste of time that will very soon be gathering dust in the remainder bins.

    Most of this movie is beyond lame. It almost makes "A Cinderella Story" -- the ever-mugging Duff's surprise hit of last summer -- look like a real movie by comparison.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Un-magical, unfunny and un-romantic alleged comedy.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A perfect storm of wooden acting, hackneyed direction, inane scripting and laughably cartoonish special effects produces a shapeless mess more wearyingly stupid than arch-villian Dr. Doom is evil.

    The bottom line of Last Days seems to be, fame's a bitch. Yes, Gus - now start making movies again that tell stories, please.

    A collection of product plugs masquerading as a movie en route to home video.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A schmaltz-laden soap opera from Saskatchewan.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A cheesy, often unintentionally funny, direct-to-video-caliber knockoff of "Aliens" that couldn't be more shallow.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The only hint of professionalism comes from Cheech Marin as Cannon's boss, who at times seems to be acting in a different movie.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A tediously self-absorbed variation on "The Big Chill" and "The Return of the Secaucus 7."
    • 58 Metascore

    Liev Schreiber's film version of "Everything Is Illuminated" achieves the impossible — it's even more annoying than Jonathan Safran Foer's gratingly precocious novel.

    This poorly acted, directed and written (but slick-looking) vanity project was produced by Andrew Lauren (Ralph's son also ineptly plays G's major-domo) and shot at least four years ago.

    A painfully sincere indie drama that isn't content to evoke only the misery of 9/11 -- it has to reference TWA Flight 800 for extra grief.

    Those endless end credits reveal that McKittrick previously worked at Steak & Ale, Roadhouse Grill and Friday's. He may well need to return to his line of work after a debut as dismal as this one.

    Any way you slice it, A Tale of Two Pizzas is so ineptly written and directed that it's pretty soggy entertainment.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Excruciatingly bad.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A trite, incoherent and pretentious bomb.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Wal-Mart's home office in Bentonville, Ark., can rest easy: Greenwald, as usual, is hysterically preaching to the choir.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Hyperactive.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Painfully unfunny spoof.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    THE mesmerizingly awful The Kid & I is a historic first: a comedy about the making of a vanity production that is ITSELF a vanity production.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A pathetic stoner comedy.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Painfully sincere. But it wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Another ridiculous anti-American screed by the minimalist Danish director Lars von Trier, who has never set foot in this country.
    • 27 Metascore

    Ineptly directed by Simon West, the scare-free When a Stranger Calls is the worst of the seminal horror movies from the late '70s and early '80s that have been getting the remake treatment lately.
