    One element of Sorority Boys is undeniably good, and that is the title. Pause by the poster on the way into the theater. That will be your high point.

    So bad in so many different ways that perhaps you should see it, as an example of the lowest slopes of the bell-shaped curve.

    Dreadful...Maybe another 200 cigarettes would have helped; coughing would be better than some of this dialogue.

    Josie and the Pussycats are not dumber than the Spice Girls, but they're as dumb as the Spice Girls, which is dumb enough.

    A dead zone of comedy. The concept is exhausted, the ideas are tired, the physical gags are routine, the story is labored, the actors look like they can barely contain their doubts about the project.

    A vanity production beyond all reason. I am not sure, however, than the vanity is Dylan's. I don't have any idea what to think about him.

    The Cannonball Run is an abdication of artistic responsibility at the lowest possible level of ambition. In other words, they didn't even care enough to make a good lousy movie.

    Even Cowgirls Get the Blues is one of the more empty, pointless, baffling films I can remember, and the experience of viewing it is an exercise in nothingness.

    Not that the film is outrageous. That would be asking too much. It is dim-witted, unfunny, too shallow to be offensive.

    Not bad so much as inexplicable. You watch in puzzlement: How did this train wreck happen?

    Awful in so many different ways.

    The film has the obnoxious tone of a boring home movie narrated by a guy shouting in your ear.
    • 35 Metascore

    An utterly meaningless waste of time...It is a dead zone, a film without interest, wit, imagination or even entertaining violence and special effects.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 12 Roger Ebert
    The movie is a chaotic mess, overloaded with special effects and explosions, light on continuity, sanity and coherence.

    It's a movie without a brain. Charlie's Angels is like the trailer for a video game movie, lacking only the video game, and the movie.

    A truly dreadful film, a lifeless, massive, lumbering exercise in failed comedy. Elaine May, the director, has mounted a multimillion-dollar expedition in search of a plot so thin that it hardly could support a five-minute TV sketch.

    The very soul of sophomorism. It is callow, gauche, obvious and awkward, and designed to appeal to those with similar qualities.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 12 Roger Ebert
    It goes through the motions of an action thriller, but there is a deadness at its center, a feeling that no one connected with it loved what they were doing.

    This is a dishonest, quease-inducing "comedy" that had me feeling uneasy and then unclean. Who in the world read this script and thought it was acceptable?

    Through superhuman effort of the will, I did not walk out of The Hot Chick, but reader, I confess I could not sit through the credits.

    To make a film this awful, you have to have enormous ambition and confidence, and dream big dreams.

    As faithful readers will know, I have a few cult followers who enjoy my reviews of bad movies. These have been collected in the books "I Hated, Hated, Hated, HATED This Movie"; "Your Movie Sucks," and "A Horrible Experience of Unendurable Length." This movie is so bad, it couldn't even inspire a review worthy of one of those books. I have my standards.

    They're so detached they can't even successfully lip-synch their own songs.

    Jason X sucks on the levels of storytelling, character development, suspense, special effects, originality, punctuation, neatness and aptness of thought. Only its title works.
    • 27 Metascore

    A comedy so listless, leisurely and unspirited that it was an act of the will for me to care about it, even while I was watching it.

    An ideal first movie for infants, who can enjoy the bright colors on the screen and wave their tiny hands to the music.

    The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented.

    What a strange, confused, unpleasant movie this is. Two theories have clustered around it: (1) It is anti-Mormon propaganda to muddy the waters around the presidential campaign of Mitt Romney, or (2) it is not about Mormons at all, but an allegory about the 9/11/01 terrorists. Take your choice. The problem with allegories is that you can plug them in anywhere. No doubt the film would have great impact in Darfur.

    Chaos is ugly, nihilistic, and cruel -- a film I regret having seen. I urge you to avoid it.

    The secrets of the plot must remain unrevealed by me, so that you can be offended by them yourself, but let it be said this movie is about as corrupt, intellectually bankrupt and morally dishonest as it could possibly be without David Gale actually hiring himself out as a joker at the court of Saddam Hussein.
