    Reaches breathtaking lows of incoherence, sexism, racial stereotyping, and -- did I say incoherence?

    Where the first pic breezed along with gags and gunplay, this forced follow-up is artificial to the hilt - fueled on a kind of trying-too-hard hilarity that makes even good actors look bad.

    Chloe & Theo is a mess of a message movie, simplistic, sappy, silly.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Steven Rea
    A lethargic, lurching holiday-themed comedy.
    • 21 Metascore

    It's getting tiresome, this stuff.

    Little kidniks with an appetite for zap-pow silliness might find this to their liking. Everyone else, beware.

    • 38 Steven Rea
    Just a big chunk of waste flushed from a Hollywood studio.

    • 25 Steven Rea
    Long, lumbering and endlessly unfunny.

    Affleck, for his part, behaves as if a Zero from "Pearl Harbor" dropped one too close to his noggin. He looks permanently shell-shocked.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    88 Minutes proves itself to be a maddeningly mediocre, ineptly manipulative "real-time" thriller.

    Struggles mightily to find its loony essence. But Bullock's apple-cheeked larkishness is all flailing limbs and bug-eyed reaction shots - there's no there there. Cooper's character is woefully underwritten, Church's is yet another vain anchorman-wannabe cartoon.

    Dark and murky, grainy and grim.

    Gets stupider as it moves along. By the end, you just don't care whether that cold-hearted snake Petrovich (that would be Reno) gets his comeuppance. Just bring on the Battle Bots, please!

    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.

    Awesomely ridiculous thriller.

    Slackers is, well, consummately cheesy. Ugh.

    Totally lame.

    Lewd, crude, blessedly brief.

    Plodding and virtually plotless (employee gets caught in maw of machine, blood squirts, boss tells everyone to get back to work, employee gets caught in maw of machine...), The Mangler might have been amusing if it had been played for laughs. Instead, this dreary yarn is hardly played for anything. [6 Mar 1995, p.D02]
