    I nodded off watching Just Visiting.

    Connoisseurs of giant, gnarled chunks of charred flesh, rejoice! There's plenty of it -- or stuff resembling it -- in the slasher-fest convergence of two killer franchises.

    8 1/2 Women is a collage-y, self-reflexive sort of film that is designed to shock but more often just annoys.

    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Long, lumbering and endlessly unfunny.

    The thing about stoner comedy is that, well, it helps to be stoned.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    The whole affair has a painfully self-conscious, self-referential air. Jokes land with a thud, and so, alas, does Rocky, who seems to have forgotten how to fly.

    Totally lame.

    • 25 Steven Rea
    I could make a joke here about the new Pokemon movie.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Contrived story lines and an altogether phony resolution erase whatever energy and wit the film displayed, leaving the viewer with an empty, disappointed feeling.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A syrup-thick New Age ghost story of the same sappy stripe and mawkishness as another Costner foray, "Message in a Bottle."
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Maybe, you think, there is something daring and brilliant going on here: an excursion into the darkest territories of the human soul. But no. In the end -- or the beginning -- there is no point to all this. Or at least not a point worth making, and making us watch.

    Affleck, for his part, behaves as if a Zero from "Pearl Harbor" dropped one too close to his noggin. He looks permanently shell-shocked.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A stale and stupid thriller.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Cross "Get Shorty" with "State and Main" - Hollywood hustlers, colorful crooks, crafty poseurs, and a production crew on location - and you have the stuff of The Last Shot. One other thing: eliminate anything funny.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A lethargic, lurching holiday-themed comedy.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Little kidniks with an appetite for zap-pow silliness might find this to their liking. Everyone else, beware.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A forced-march comedy.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    The cast, especially The Game, does a fairly good job with this meager material, but it's like trying to make chateaubriand out of Spam.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    Has to be one of the nuttiest, sappiest (literally), most unintentionally hilarious spectacles to come down the time-travel turnpike in eons.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    No one is getting at anything in The Strangers, except the cheapest, ugliest kind of sadistic titillation.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    About as not-funny as a comedy can get.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    I'm ripping up my Lars Von Trier fan club card.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    An astoundingly senseless thriller.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A lazy assemblage of sketch-comedy raunch, mock-schlock TV ads, and ideas that even the writers of "Mall Cop" and "Observe and Report" would have tossed.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    This movie feels like it has a million jokes, and every single one arrives with a lethal thud.

    Slackers is, well, consummately cheesy. Ugh.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 52 Metascore
    • 12 Steven Rea
    Somnambulistic pacing, kerplunkingly unfunny jokes, and mugging thespians making fools of themselves. Truly torturous spectacle.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 12 Steven Rea
    The movie heads in a disastrous direction: namely, a police academy ceremony... This lets-wrap-this-thing-up moment sucks the life and the honesty out of an otherwise compelling portrait of tainted lawmen, tainted law.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 12 Steven Rea
    Reaches breathtaking lows of incoherence, sexism, racial stereotyping, and -- did I say incoherence?
    • 34 Metascore

    Has to be among the worst movies ever made.

    As far as director Nicole Kassell and writer Gren Wells are concerned, the C in Big C must stand for cute. The film reaches into the pits of moviegoing hell when it finds Marley on a celestial white couch, ringed in billowing white curtains, communing with God. And God is embodied by Whoopi Goldberg.
