    Manages to be excruciatingly unfunny despite the presence of Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson in the lead roles.

    Child of God is, like the source novel, loosely inspired by the notorious real-life cannibal murderer Ed Gein. So was Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.’’ Nobody left that classic bored — but they sure will be by Franco’s film.

    “Scratch the surface and there’s only more surface,’’ a character all too accurately observes in this clunky, ugly and dull mash-up of a mystery.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A lazy, noisy ADHD-addled collection of animated clichés guaranteed to give anyone older than 5 a headache, even if you don’t see it in optional 3-D.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An utterly clueless, relentlessly grim and rambling action epic guaranteed to displease devout Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, amuse atheists — and generally bore everyone.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A jaw-droppingly terrible animated musical that mismatches George Lucas’ inane story about a pair of fairy princesses to an oddball selection of the “Star Wars’’ creator’s favorite pop tunes.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Unintended laughs far, far outnumber intended thrills.
    • 67 Metascore

    Hard-core Hollywood haters will best appreciate Maps to the Stars, a campy poison-pen letter to Tinseltown that makes “Sunset Boulevard’’ look like a tourism infomercial by comparison.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    “Short Circuit” meets “RoboCop” — with asides to “WALL-E,” “E.T.,” “The Road Warrior” and many other better movies — in Chappie, an interminable, violent, incoherent and wearying R-rated sci-fi action comedy.
    • 42 Metascore

    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.”
    • 36 Metascore

    The choppily edited and thoroughly wooden Serena utterly fails to catch fire, even when everything literally goes up in flames. So despite its big stars, it’s getting only a token theatrical release.

    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The Hateful Eight is basically an expensive vanity project allowing Tarantino to expound on his bizarre theories about race relations.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Some handsome location shooting in New Orleans doesn’t make up for the Oscar winners’ relentless hamming and a plot that twists way beyond credibility.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A movie so pathetically lame that hopefully even Spears most ardent young fans will give this stinker a big thumbs down.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Epic waste of celluloid.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Don't even think of visiting this French fiasco.
    • New York Post
    • 33 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A creepy, depressing and leering "comedy" that's a virtual collection of "What were they thinking?" moments.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    One bad movie -- in the original sense of the word.
    • New York Post
    • 18 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A skin-crawlingly unfunny riff on Woody Allen's "Bananas."
    • New York Post
    • 46 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    This would be a stultifyingly incestuous affair even if all the jokes about fertilization weren't so tiresomely lame and predictable.
    • New York Post
    • 63 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    This time out, Broomfield comes up with maybe enough halfway decent material for a 10-minute segment on a second-rate tabloid TV show.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Stinko movies often unwittingly critique themselves -- and the brain-dead romantic comedy Down to You (which Miramax understandably didn't screen in advance for critics) is no exception.
    • New York Post
    • 9 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    A low-end scam by Lions Gate Films -- whose recent "The Wash" was a masterpiece by comparison.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    An unholy mess.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Beyond-lame satire.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Sandler's latest ode to projectile vomiting, passing gas, gay jokes and physical insults to the groin is basically a feeble cross between "The Revenge of the Nerds" and "The Bad News Bears."
    • 30 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    An impressive supporting cast can't save this painfully unfunny, ham-fisted mockumentary poking fun at reality TV shows.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    There isn't a remotely believable moment in the script here, and Kramer's leaden direction only helps strand a capable cast headed by Heather Graham in an hour and a half of virtual laugh-free tedium.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    The movie has two modes - very loud and extremely loud - and all of the actors are encouraged to mug their hearts out. That even includes Cusack's real-life sister Joan, normally one of the most reliable performers in the business.
