    If Alfred Hitchcock were retarded, lobotomized, and freshly dug up, he might possibly c--- out a movie like this one.

    Of all the various low-budget documentaries chronicling the Star Wars phenomenon, Tariq Jalil's is certainly the most recent. There's not a whole lot else to say about it.

    If you were ever in marching band, you'll love this; if not, stay far away.

    You probably saw this film the last time around, when it was called "Sleeping With the Enemy." This one merely adds a better car chase and more ass-kicking.

    What saves the film from utter forgettability are the strong supporting performances, especially from Peter Caffrey as the town atheist, and Tony Doyle.

    If you really want to live life to the fullest, step one is to avoid wasting an hour and a half of your life in a theater showing Last Holiday.

    It's a bad sign when you're rooting for the film to hurry up and get to its subjects' deaths just so the documentary will be over, but it's indicative of how uncompelling the movie is unless it happens to cover your particular area of interest.

    Some of this stuff should give you some good laughs. Unfortunately, the film's not a comedy, and once the conservative-bashing wears off, the alleged thriller elements kick in. Too bad that for you, the viewer, there's still another hour to go.

    King's decision to co-write the script and turn it into a CliffsNotes version of The Stand only makes things worse.

    This sort of thing is the problem with making stuff up as you go along.

    History buffs will find this film lacking, and it isn't really deep enough to educate the rest of us as thoroughly as it should.

    Like the recent "Baise-moi," Bully is a whole lot of shock and titillation trying to pretend it's saying something. Unlike the French import, however, there's no awareness of its own absurdity, nor anything for the audience to care about in the slightest.

    Director Marcus Raboy hasn't made a bad movie, exactly -- just one that seems to have forgotten its own jokes, much as those who watch it will forget everything about it a week later, stoned or not.

    It's unfortunate that, nudity and all, this is one of Toback's absolute worst efforts.

    The best way to watch it is with a loaded bong, the volume turned down and the Orb cranked up on your stereo.

    Not just another disposable romantic comedy, but an ambitious, overreaching mess.

    So desperate are the filmmakers to create a "hip" western that they try to cram it with action sequences that aren't very exciting.

    There's no reason to see this film in a theater -- you'll hate yourself for paying full price. Plus, you'll need beer, and lots of it, to appreciate the movie properly.

    The final showdown between sole survivor and killer is sufficiently well done that you wonder why the rest didn't measure up.

    Not that there aren't funny moments in the film, but they're cobbled together so awkwardly that you'd never suspect the director had made a film before.

    It's a lame Heather Locklear romantic comedy and a lame Hilary Duff romantic comedy all in one!

    While not entirely successful, at least deserves points for creativity.

    Ultimately, the film amounts to being lectured to by tech-geeks, if you're up for that sort of thing.

    So how bad, in the final analysis, is Gigli? The best that can be said is that it doesn't beat out "The Ladies Man" as the most abrasively awful film of the past five years, nor does it top "Battlefield Earth" for sheer misguided lunacy.

    It plays like a parody of suspense movies, then occasionally becomes serious, then boring, then makes a jarring 180, then frustrates, then gets vaguely interesting again.

    Less fun than "Cry_Wolf" and "Venom," if that's possible.

    No doubt Fox wants to tap into those Latina dollars, but you've got to spend money to make money, and this shoddily cheap-looking product ain't gonna do it.

    Hackman, playing it gleefully amoral, walks away with the film, for what that's worth...which is a video rental for fans of the actors involved. Yes, that's video, not DVD -- four bucks at Blockbuster is more than you ought to be paying.

    Plays like a knockoff of Michael Bay's already derivative and much more fun "Bad Boys," only with even less plot. It also recalls the worst qualities of John Singleton's mean-spirited "Shaft."

    If it had anything that even approached the vaguest vicinity of a plot, The Wash might be a cool diversion for a Saturday afternoon at the mall.
