    Neither intellectually nor viscerally engaging, what The Divide finally offers audiences is the not-terribly-edifying, stagnant experience of being locked in a basement with a pack of assholes.

    When every injury is repaid with interest, this self-destroying work has nowhere to go but to the credits. Such symmetry is a dismal, barbarian sort of perfection.

    Game performances and a couple of half-laughs, sure, but this is the screen comedy equivalent of the televised Yule log.

    All might be good for a flask-to-the-theater laugh, if not for the unconscionable price gouging.

    The most avid fans of merciless mugging will be the sole admirers of the bookending story of Liu Xiaoye's Butcher.

    Add to this that it takes place in the town of Merkin, and you'll get an idea of the labored spirit of dirty-old-man humor that prevails.

    It is part of the film's premise that the movies are only a pretext to serve personal needs. Given how little the murky finished product offers an outside audience, this comes across all too convincingly.

    Christian "Direct-to-Video" Slater lends not a shred of credibility to the role of Craig MacKenzie.

    Smart money says Friedberg and Seltzer never sit through these movies in entirety.

    The Apparition is not a great or even good haunted-house movie, but it does have the advantage of a memorable setting.

    A Little Bit of Heaven demands miracles of its cast to keep proceedings from becoming grindingly mawkish and does not get them.

    It is dreary to envisage the viewer who could become emotionally involved in The Victim, but it does have the kind of slack watchability - lugubrious driving scenes and girl-talk flashbacks pad the movie toward feature length - that make for good late-night TV.

    A pretend poison pen letter to Hollywood sleaze and excess, Prince of Swine is in fact Toma's application to join the club - hopefully denied.
