    Must be counted as a forfeit.

    Despite cute kids, tough dads, and problems controlling bed-wetting and farts, Daddy Day Camp should just limp off to the nurse's tent and call it quits.

    Michael Moore has nothing to fear from David Zucker.

    All ends happily for everyone in the movie, but for those in the audience, the experience is so hackneyed that they'll come out feeling like they're wearing shirts that say, "I went to the Acropolis, but all I got was this lousy T-shirt."

    Not so much bad as it is witless and predictable.

    I'd use the term science fiction to describe Skyline but the movie decidedly lacks both science and fiction.

    What the kids at my screening seemed to like best was the wizard's cat, whose mouth is computer-manipulated to utter pithy asides.

    The Land of Lazy can crown a new king because with Grown Ups 2 Adam Sandler has officially nabbed the throne.

    Functions mainly as a big-screen showcase for America's No. 1 teen tease, with the story and other characters serving mainly as accessories.

    Reeks as badly as it sounds.

    Certain to be distasteful to children and adults alike, Eight Crazy Nights is a total misfire.

    Nothing about this movie works.

    The loosely scripted story is further burdened with clunky dialogue and performances, shoddy continuity.

    Not one of these new-fangled Christian movies that camouflages its proselytizing with decent storytelling and filmmaking technique. Time Changer is clunky, repetitive, and ham-handed.

    A gimmick in search of a movie: how to get Carvey into as many silly costumes and deliver as many silly voices as possible, plot mechanics be damned.

    Shoddy craftsmanship and uninteresting subjects (it's amazing how tedious some conversations can be when there's no one to put words in the subjects' mouths) sink this spring-break movie faster than an outbreak of Leginnaires’ disease on a vacation cruise liner.

    The story is so shabbily built that it can make no valid claim to motives other than the filmmakers' mercenary desires to cash in on the public's prurient interests. And even on this bottom-feeder level, Showgirls fails to deliver the goods.

    What can you say about a movie that includes its outtake bloopers reel before the closing credits?

    Audiences may find this pap brimming with heart and sympathy for the little guy, but as prescriptions go, Patch Adams is pure placebo.

    All the advance signs looked discouraging, but I still kept thinking: How bad could a comedy starring Eddie Murphy and Jeff Goldblum really be? Well, let's put it this way … you won't ever hear me asking that particular question again.

    This is a movie that should have bypassed the theatres and gone straight to DVD. It is offensive on so many levels.

    Her mortal story seems one of sadness rather than inspiration.

    Simply put, no matter what this zebra thinks of himself, Stripes is no thoroughbred.

    It's full of special effects that are big on smoke and noise, but short on logic and payoff.

    The comic equivalent of a lump of coal.

    The movie is nothing more than a perpetual chain of elaborately choreographed (by returning star Robin Shou) fight sequences that mix live-action foregrounds with complexly layered digital effects and are linked together by the most flimsy and laughable of plot elements.

    Maybe everyone involved was hoping that no one would see this movie, but Madsen is the only one who should fear anyone seeing his work.

    Whether their goal is to nourish the faithful or lure the heathens is not always clear. The only thing that's clear is that The Last Sin Eater serves neither of these higher purposes.

    A listless family comedy and bland morality primer.

    Beverly Hills Cop III is made with so little spark, humor, and internal logic that it makes me better appreciate these other recent Murphy movies where the actor/comedian at least stretched his persona and attempted something apart from the action comedy mold.
