    This is another miserable movie about women at war over nonsense.

    A moronic exercise in supernatural claptrap.

    The Unborn joins a growing glut of Holocaust- and Nazi-themed material -- "Valkyrie," "Defiance" - that are long on posturing, suppositions, and righteousness, yet short on moral complexity. Nazism and its crimes have lately inspired theme parks more than actual movies. Too many rides on that roller coaster and I feel sick.

    Tens of millions of dollars were spent to tell us what we should have known going in: that the makers of the movie you're slogging through will spare no expense to demonstrate how much they hate us. Do us a favor. Tell them the feeling is mutual.

    At its least intolerable, the movie is a fatherhood freak-out.

    The dismemberment and torture are now shtick. The filmmakers - "Saw" veterans - struggle to imbue this movie with the usual righteousness.

    Even by the lowest standards, this is a frightless, cynically made movie.

    The only chills to be found are courtesy of your theater's central air, and the suspense will come from the wait to see which disappointed kid in a hockey mask will be the first to slash the screen.

    Getting to the true root of his evil may necessitate "Saw LX."

    Most of American Psycho just sits there, looking at trouble, rather than looking for it - complacent, overjoyed in fact to exist at all.

    Yes, I've seen Dumb and Dumberer, so you don't have to. As good deeds go, this is about as significant as getting a cat out of a tree, but believe me, you're better off at home, alphabetizing your old comic books, talking to your parents, or watching paint dry.

    One Missed Call was originally a so-so Takashi Miike freak-out. Now it's a worse-worse American eyesore.

    When Jamie Lee Curtis ran from a killer in 1980's "Prom Night," she was 22 and had a unique gift for belting out fear. She was the Beverly Sills of slasher flicks. That "Prom Night" was dumb, but it wasn't insulting in the way this remake is.

    Highfalutin swill determined to pass itself off as a jazzy caper.

    You want to make lemonade from this, but even the lemons stink.

    The writers don’t write, the director doesn’t really direct, and the actors don’t exactly act. They wait for the movie’s contraptions to impale them.

    Over Her Dead Body is to romantic comedy what Spam is to meat. But at least with Spam, you get cool packaging.

    There's no real journalism here, just the sort of appalling revisionism that can turn a bloodbath into a beach party.

    Cosmic slop.

    The movie crassly repurposes tragedy to excuse its cliches.

    They have the chemistry of step-siblings, so a movie that has them make out is, as the one of the few girls in the theater exclaimed, "so gross."

    If your name's on the marquee, chances are your agent's already dead.

    Really, all Six is going for, with the generous application of both hardware supplies to the skin and feces to the camera, is a tired commentary on his shallow talents: They're excremental.

    Breaks new ground both as an abominable enterprise in guy-talk and as no-budget hackwork.

    It's an experience as frustrating as watching Jeff Gordon drive a stock car through a bowl of oatmeal.

    No one onscreen was actor enough to make us believe we were watching actual people commit or require actual exorcisms.

    The movie can barely muster the bravery to be even "Dude, Where's My Car" stoopid.

    A shamelessly dumb movie.

    Amid the dumbness and disgust for paying customers, the movie does manage to cough up something I didn't expect: a performance so terrible you can't quite believe it's happening: Bentley's.

    Overlong, naggingly pretentious, more absurd than absurdist and a cruel, cruel bore.
    • 41 Metascore

    It is a traffic jam of broken hearts, fluxing racial identities and deplorable outfits that has everything but a salsa overhaul of "I Will Survive."

    Another "Exorcist" bastard -- one with a chick-flick pedigree.
