    For a movie to pretend, in the face of the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqi men, women, and children directly or indirectly caused by our presence there, that we can wage war without anyone really getting hurt isn't naive, or wishful thinking, or a jim-dandy way to spend a Saturday night at the movies. It's an obscenity.

    Saved from total puff only by the obnoxiousness of its star, who seems to be laboring under the delusion that he's the next Eddie Murphy.

    The Heart Is Deceitful wants to cauterize us into feeling something -- anything -- but it's far too heartless to know what.

    An American Haunting sets the bar at a new low: It makes ''The Blair Witch Project" look like a masterpiece of world cinema.

    It's a remarkably laugh-free comedy that takes on a dark subject and skitters along its surface.

    For proof that some actresses can take on a misconceived role and get out alive, there's Huffman as Lilly.

    Who on earth is this embarrassment -- easily the worst film of the year to date -- aimed at?

    A weirdly airless disaster, a turkey so insistently DOA that the dialogue serves as its own epitaph.

    Kranks is a feel-good movie in which every character is hateful (except, sigh, the cancer lady), and a Christmas movie too chickenhearted to mention Jesus.

    If the producers had dug up Ted Geisel's body and hung it from a tree, they couldn't have desecrated the man more.

    Finding Amanda, unfortunately, is one vast, irritating surface.

    Vengeance has the odor of court-ordered community service. The jokes never rise above the groin. The trees look plastic, the characters more so.

    It's more like "Porky's for Dummies," a thoroughly depressing teen farce in which Internet voyeurism has replaced human intimacy and where privacy is SO 20th century.

    The most painful movie so far in a year that's already scraping the bottom of the barrel, Your Highness is a tedious, dung-colored misfire that sullies the genre of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" and "The Princess Bride."

    Easily the worst movie of the week, month, year, and Bullock’s entire career. It is to comedy what leprosy once was to the island of Molokai: a plague best contemplated from many miles away.

    A live-action film based on a line of dolls, it's pure marketing chum for tweeners: a proudly shallow, purposefully bland ode to girly-girl narcissism. I could actually feel my brain stem shrivel up as I watched it.

    An overlong, joyless, and inconsequential affair, full of dead air, and possessing only a few moments of jaw-dropping bad taste. It's a dull disaster.

    This is first-degree cultural homicide.
