    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.

    Beyond-lame satire.
    • 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.

    A movie so pathetically lame that hopefully even Spears most ardent young fans will give this stinker a big thumbs down.

    A low-end scam by Lions Gate Films -- whose recent "The Wash" was a masterpiece by comparison.
    • 47 Metascore

    An unholy mess.
    • 40 Metascore

    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.

    • 12 Lou Lumenick
    Misconceived, bloated and incredibly ugly fantasy epic.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Vanity, thy name is Kevin Spacey.

    Less funny or romantic than your average colonoscopy, this cringe-inducing bore provides dubious employment for four Oscar winners, two nominees and a raft of TV performers.

    Even by the extremely low standards of the genre, When in Rome gets failing marks for chemistry, credibility and even coherence.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 0 Lou Lumenick
    A schmaltzy, smutty and mean-spirited quasi-satire.

    Stick a fork in Nia Vardalos. I've been to funerals that were a lot more fun than I Hate Valentine's Day, her second alleged romantic comedy in less than a month.
    • 20 Metascore

    Tedious and tawdry.
    • 32 Metascore

    A witless, stale and half-hearted rehash of cliches borrowed from the likes of "The Wedding Planner," "The Wedding Singer" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral," this pathetic, alleged comedy certainly wasn't improved by clueless direction by Clare Kilner.

    A witless and vulgar sequel.
    • 33 Metascore

    Shoddily made, boring and, most shockingly, without a single decent scare.
    • 11 Metascore

    None of this is remotely funny.

    "I am surrounded by oceans of boredom," the campy Abraham complains at one point. It's a sentiment audiences are bound to share.
    • 44 Metascore

    HUGELY tedious and mostly incomprehensible.
    • 23 Metascore

    A vile and laughless follow-up to Schneider's 1999 hit.
    • 41 Metascore

    This painfully unfunny mockumentary about obsessive collectors of frozen-food entrees takes potshots at anti-abortionists, Christian rockers, aversion therapy for gays and the disabled -- and misses almost every time.

    Aeon Flux is by far the year's worst movie, a most dubious achievement.
    • 47 Metascore

    The material has been dumbed down for contemporary tastes and Carrey's frantic comic style.
