    Even with help from a pathetic Kid Rock and a boost from always-on Christopher Walken, Spade can't pull this off.

  1. Glitter does no one any favors.

  2. It's about as much fun for the viewer as being dropped into a virtual-reality version of a highway-safety crash film. Hall writes and directs with the finesse of a rusty hatchet.
  3. All it offers is sadism, impure and simple.
  4. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past displays nary a wisp of life, let alone an afterlife.
  5. Here's my nomination for future grindhouse double-bill from hell: Pathfinder and "Apocalypto."
  6. Here's hoping Allen's static Hennessey is due to an extreme acting choice and not plastic surgery. It would be tragic to lose a natural smile to star in garbage like Death Race.
  7. There isn't an earned moment of uplift or laughter in the movie. Everything in it is prefab.
  8. Idiotic, ugly and ridiculous.

  9. It's a gore sundae with an S&M cherry on top.
  10. Margot at the Wedding is a Christmas gift for high-class depressives: a compendium of malaise fit for an L.L. Bean catalog.
  11. The movie is a model of multinational incompetence.
  12. Venom isn't worth a critic's venom, but a brief condemnation is in order.
  13. All Alexander proves in Punisher: War Movie is that a martial-arts-trained woman can make a film just as stupid, coarse and numbing as any muscle man.
  14. CJ7
    You leave this movie feeling mugged.
  15. Go see Crossroads if you want to hear Britney sing or see her wear next-to-nothing. But otherwise, avoid this train wreck at all costs.
    • Baltimore Sun
  16. It's stupefying in its dullness and vulgarity.
  17. Fame has today's usual gritty form of slick to it, but in every other way it's an Amateur Hour and a half.
  18. Be Cool proves that when "cool" evaporates all it leaves are embarrassing little puddles.
