    To describe Love, Honor and Obey as a cross between "Duets" and "Snatch" doesn't begin to suggest how desperately unfunny this musical gangster comedy is.

    A shipwreck. They say a dead fish stinks from the head first - but the animated shipwreck Shark Tale arrives reeking all over.

    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."

    More "it stinks" than *NSYNC.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Basically a much schmaltzier fantasy version of “Love Story.’’
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    “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.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    So nasty, hysterical and long-winded -- and unintentionally makes capital punishment foes look so twisted -- you wish someone had administered a lethal injection to this dreck in its planning stages.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Suspenselessly directed by Robby Henson, Thr3e commits the eighth deadly sin - boredom.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A trite, incoherent and pretentious bomb.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Crashing chandelier, crashing bore.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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
    A slow-moving, dirt-dull narrative crammed with clunky expository dialogue and obscure Biblical references.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A total disaster.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Dear John is the sort of movie that gives tearjerkers a bad name.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Isn't particularly funny, romantic or well-acted. It drags on endlessly.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Shlocky, sloppy and crass adolescent comedy.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Rock appears to have edited I Think I Love My Wife with a roulette wheel.
    • 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.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The sort of misfire that Hollywood has long buried in January.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Wastes some veteran performers in a slight, silly musical fantasy with two left feet.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    When Will I Be Loved would rate no stars except for Campbell's brave, totally committed performance -- which deserves a far better movie than this.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Veteran screenwriter John Pogue, in his second directorial outing, tries repeatedly and mostly unsuccessfully to jolt his audience by amping up the abundant sound effects to ear-shattering levels.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Most of the interviews are as brief as they are obvious, and it doesn't help that none of those interviewees, including clergymen who served as technical advisers, are identified.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Excruciatingly unfunny.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    There's no excuse for a thriller as lame, leaden and unthrilling as Godsend, which manages to take a potentially interesting subject - human cloning - and use it to put audiences to sleep.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Interminably long, dull and incomprehensible, John Carter evokes pretty much every sci-fi classic from the past 50 years without having any real personality of its own.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Tiresome cavalcade of bickering — which feels like it lasts even longer than your typical Thanksgiving dinner.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Aside from a relatively brief appearance by Joan Cusack's avatar as the kidnapped mother, there are no involving characters or situations.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A truly repulsive piece of trash that says far more about the absence of values from contemporary filmmaking than the waywardness of teens.
