    This would be a stultifyingly incestuous affair even if all the jokes about fertilization weren't so tiresomely lame and predictable.

    This time out, Broomfield comes up with maybe enough halfway decent material for a 10-minute segment on a second-rate tabloid TV show.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Even if it weren't three years too late to parody Moore (ineptly played by Kevin Farley), Moore's ridiculous tribute to Cuban health care in "Sicko" is far funnier than anything in this desperately laughless farce from David Zucker ("Scary Movie 3").
    • 32 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Will Ferrell's terminally stupid, sloppy, campy and cheesy -- and thoroughly unexciting and unfunny -- experiment in "family entertainment."
    • 18 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Misconceived, bloated and incredibly ugly fantasy epic.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    More than lives up to its name with ultra-campy performances, high-glucose direction, laughable dialogue, cheesy effects and a back-lot simulation of a Manhattan street that wouldn't pass muster on an after-school special.

    Zookeeper barely avoids a zero-star rating because of James.
    • 55 Metascore

    The title It's About You is something Kurt Markus claims Mellencamp told him when he commissioned the film. With the elder Markus' self-important, egotistical narration rarely shutting up, it was a fairly prophetic remark.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    His late father directed "Rambo: First Blood,'' but Panos Cosmatos' debut feature couldn't be more different - this would-be cult classic is the movie equivalent of gazing at a lava lamp for nearly two hours.

    De Niro mostly looks miserable and very tired (a document glimpsed on-screen hilariously claims his character was born in 1970) and prattles on endlessly about forgetting the past.

    Vanity, thy name is Kevin Spacey.
    • 30 Metascore

    The only truly lethal weapons in the criminally unfunny action comedy Let’s Be Cops are the lame script, putrid direction and pair of sitcom stars mugging nonstop in frantic pursuit of laughs that have fled over the state line.
    • 33 Metascore

    The worst Hollywood musical so far this century, it’s another misstep for Sony Pictures, which also sponsored the abortive ‘‘The Interview.’’
    • 12 Metascore
    • 0 Lou Lumenick
    So unremittingly awful that labeling it a dog probably constitutes cruelty to canines.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 0 Lou Lumenick
    A glossy, shallow thriller where not a single scene rings true.
    • New York Post
    • 38 Metascore

    Lame spoof.
    • 19 Metascore

    Skin-crawlingly awful.

    An incomprehensible Bob Dylan vanity project that is not only nearly impossible to sit through, but embarrasses a long list of stars who lined up to work for scale opposite the legendary musician.

    The lamest in the recent run of comedies about uptight white people getting jiggy with it, would also be the most offensive -- if it weren't also the dullest.
    • 26 Metascore

    This is the sort of low-grade dreck that usually goes straight to video -- with a lousy script, inept direction, pathetic acting, poorly dubbed dialogue and murky cinematography, complete with visible boom mikes.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 0 Lou Lumenick
    So eyeball-gougingly awful that you're tempted to give up movies for Lent.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 0 Lou Lumenick
    Low-end schlock that will likely land with a dull thud in the video remainder bin before the frost is on the pumpkin.
