    The sloppily shot, crudely edited Head of State fails as satire, for starters, because of its utter disconnect from any kind of reality.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Unintended laughs far, far outnumber intended thrills.

    A decade later, these tabloid hall-of-famers are finally back to share the screen in By the Sea — glumly emoting in a pretentiously arty, humorless vanity production that drags along for two hours that feel like at least four.

    Seems to go on for several days and nights, though in fact it lasts just 105 minutes. I checked my watch. A lot.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Directed without wit or energy.

    Featuring eyeball-rolling performances by Vivica A. Fox, Patti LaBelle, Clifton Davis and the singularly named Leon, Cover would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic.

    Scary Movie 4 concludes by satirizing Cruise's couch-jumping orgy on "Oprah." Funny, but nowhere near as hilarious as the real thing.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A great-looking but stupefyingly incoherent supernatural thriller adapted from a popular video game that ransacks the entire catalog of horror film tropes for more than two mind-numbing hours.

    The Caller qualifies as something of a Holocaust movie, with flashbacks to World War II France. Guess who the two boys we see grow up to be?
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Lumpy, preachy and soporific.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    It's not a bad premise for a movie, but writer-director Omar Naim, a 26-year-old Lebanese native making his feature debut, proves equally inept at handling plotting, actors and pacing.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Excruciatingly bad.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The leaden pacing, somnambulant performances and incessant symbolism in nearly every shot will soon have you thinking that The Three Marias is three too many.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Shapeless, sloppy, badly paced mess.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Spectacularly awful.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    I was kind of rough on "Apocalypto," which in retrospect seems like a minor classic compared to 10,000 BC.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Catwoman is pretty well summed up by Hedare: “This is a disaster. It’s a total bloody disaster.”
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Quite a slog, with most of the acting strictly amateurish save the veteran Ed Lauter as a fish and game inspector.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    All the tedium of an endless trans-Atlantic flight gets packed into the 105 minutes of Non-Stop.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Rarely has a documentary been so pleased with itself - with so little justification.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Loud and unfunny, this cheesy-looking farce is mostly an excuse for a series of plugs.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An instant candidate for worst movie of the year.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An assembly-line high-school comedy that flunks miserably in all three subjects.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A deadly dull, by-the-numbers rendition of the Nativity story.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    You know you’re in for a long haul when Kate Winslet’s clipboard-wielding Jeanine, leader of the Erudite faction, comes off less like a Hillary Clinton than a weary Applebee’s supervisor at the end of a 14-hour shift in this plodding sequel to “Divergent.”
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Pierre is at best competent as the star, director and writer of this good-natured compendium of ghetto movie clichés, which doesn't have an awful lot to offer in the way of laughs, pacing or originality.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An ugly, unfunny, headache-inducing fairy-tale spoof.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A vulgar, grating alleged "family" comedy.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    May not set back Danish-American relations, but it's amusing to imagine how this schlock would have turned out under Denmark's most famous director, the American-hating Lars von Trier.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    With Roth at the helm of a script attributed to Price, there is minimal suspense, audience involvement or coherent social commentary.
