    The self-conscious affectation of the film would be funny, were it not so smug.

    Salva certainly gets points for creative repurposing. Much of what transpires in Dark House has been seen before, just not all in the same movie.

    The film defies one of the fundamental rules of capitalism: Exploitation of the proletariat may be well and good, but don’t execute them all. At the same time, “The Purge: Anarchy” obeys a cardinal law of Hollywood: Shoot first and ask questions later.

    Despite its deficiencies, Annabelle is not without a modicum of verve. It has its unnerving moments, but they’re outweighed by the sheer stupidity and predictability of the story.

    A glorified infomercial in defense of the holiday that contains about 15 minutes of actual content padded out with almost an hour of filler.

    Wild Wild Waste is more like it. Waste of time, waste of money and colossal waste of talent.

    I'm not sure if it was that or the cloying script, but after a couple of hours of spinning around listening to this drivel I felt like I was going to barf.

    Propelled not by characters but caricatures.

    A field goal, not a touchdown.
    • 72 Metascore

    It's the sort of movie that can make normally well-read and intelligent viewers feel stupid.
    • 25 Metascore

    Most of the comedy, such as it is, consists of the uppity Chase acting "street" and the ghetto-fabulous Tiffany putting on moneyed airs. But, if you've seen the trailers, you already know that.

    Feels more like "Porky's" with marinara sauce than "Summer of '42."

    There was absolutely no reason to make a new version of the 1970 comedy.
    • 46 Metascore

    Do not be concerned if laughter trickles out of the scary parts or boredom creeps into the funny parts; this is to be expected.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Oddly off-balance, estrogen-powered dramedy.
    • 47 Metascore

    Allegations of governmental double-talk and cover-ups are, unfortunately, boooring.
    • 54 Metascore

    Awash in the kind of pretension that only the French can get away with.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's all too, too cute and too, too forced for words -- not to mention too, too dark.
    • 32 Metascore

    For a comedy, there are precious few real laughs. Three to be exact.
    • 57 Metascore

    There's so much wrong with this movie.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Neither funny nor suspenseful nor particularly well drawn.

    The real problem is not the maudlin script or Madden's travelogue touch. It's Cage as Corelli, a miscasting that turns the normally volatile, edgy performer into little more than a spokesman for the Olive Garden.
    • 48 Metascore

    A feel-good movie only in the sense that it wants to reassure today's white people about our own enlightenment and how far we've come in the evolution of our attitudes about race.

    The makers of Godzilla obviously devoted so much manpower and time and energy and money to the admittedly fabulous special effects that they apparently had no budget left over for actors.

    The story here is just not particularly amusing.
    • 43 Metascore

    The jokes are lame, the set-up is stupid and Bullock, occasionally a winsome comedienne and here a co-producer, is annoying as heck.
    • 29 Metascore

    The drug-fueled romp turns ugly, sexist and misogynistic, as so many rap-star vehicles do.
    • 21 Metascore

    Cinematic sleeping pill.

    I never forgot for a minute that I was watching a cartoon, all the way down to the silly, pseudo-spiritual ending, an ending whose very incomprehensibility is actually one of the more endearing hallmarks of anime.

    Even the Richard Rich-directed animation -- except for some nice but gratuitous computer-generated walking statues and dramatic ocean waves -- is not appreciably better than Saturday morning cartoons.
