  1. Brand's script is a puzzle without a satisfying solution. Even at its supposedly heartfelt conclusion, it's more ironic than emotional, more of an art thing than a suspense movie.
  2. 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.

  3. Idiotic, ugly and ridiculous.

  4. Be Cool proves that when "cool" evaporates all it leaves are embarrassing little puddles.
  5. The movie is a model of multinational incompetence.
  6. Venom isn't worth a critic's venom, but a brief condemnation is in order.
  7. 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.
  8. There isn't an earned moment of uplift or laughter in the movie. Everything in it is prefab.
  9. Here's my nomination for future grindhouse double-bill from hell: Pathfinder and "Apocalypto."
  10. It's stupefying in its dullness and vulgarity.
  11. Margot at the Wedding is a Christmas gift for high-class depressives: a compendium of malaise fit for an L.L. Bean catalog.
  12. CJ7
    You leave this movie feeling mugged.
  13. All it offers is sadism, impure and simple.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. It's a gore sundae with an S&M cherry on top.
  17. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past displays nary a wisp of life, let alone an afterlife.
  18. Fame has today's usual gritty form of slick to it, but in every other way it's an Amateur Hour and a half.
