  1. Inert dud of a hitmen-are-people-too comedy.
  2. Atrociously scripted and edited.
  3. This kingdom really should be forbidden.

    Jazmin's so fat that the movie reduces her to a single discernible characteristic, which is a telltale mark of many a wholly awful comedy.
  4. WDIGMT? serves up speeches about trust and fidelity and rolling with the punches and blah blah blah. But it does so with so little energy that the actors might as well be saying the words blah blah blah.
  5. By the end, you feel like a drill sergeant-you want to wipe that stupid grin off Sandler's face.
  6. Doesn't contain a single scary or imaginative moment.

    Never mind that the film's portrayal of the mentally ill is on a par with "There's Something About Mary" -- the clumsy moral that we were all better off as hunters and gatherers couldn't be sillier.
  7. Allen is no more convincing than the writer-director, Chris Ver Wiel, who strings together faux-QT, faux-Elmore Leonard clichés like so many necklace beads and pretends that's the same thing as making a movie.
  8. Just a lumbering, poorly photographed piece of derivative sci-fi drivel, full of grunting extras scampering around in animal pelts and more dank, trash-strewn sets than I ever care to see again.

    There's not much else for viewers to do but give themselves over to the whims of the bad-movie gods.
  9. It's no insult to Melville to say that he wrote, in effect, the original ''Dilbert.'' This movie, unfortunately, makes ''Dilbert'' look like Melville.
  10. Based on a videogame, Hitman could be the year's dumbest movie.

    The tedious flick offers little more than a few scares, and plenty of boobs. And we're not just talking about the cast.
  11. A ponderous dystopian bummer that might be described as "The Road Warrior" without car chases, or "The Road" without humanity.
  12. A cheaply made piece of ''psychological'' occult schlock, subjects you to that depressing stop-and-go rhythm that defines inept fantasy thrillers.
  13. Everything is wrong pretty much from the start of this misbegotten adventure.
  14. You'd think that the film would ask you to be appalled at this scenario of forced servitude -- but no, it's treated as harmless and cute, like an Israeli ''Chico and the Man.''
  15. Critics tend to fawn over the Japanese director-star Takeshi Kitano (a.k.a. Beat Takeshi), but am I the only one who finds his films impossible to make heads or tails of?
  16. The big climax isn't climactic, just hysterical and incoherent. Murphy, with her bug-eyed, love-me mugging, is simply too slight and gawky to play the Everygirl.
  17. This ''satire'' of triple-X raunch and ''Jerry Springer'' sleaze starts off at a pitch of preening dementia and just grows more hysterical from there.
  18. God-awful?Gooding screams out lines like ''I'm about to get in yo' ass like last year's underwear!''
  19. An action-choked dud in which even the closing outtakes barely deserve to be left on the cutting-room floor?
  20. The backstories keep piling up, with nods to "The Shining," "The Ring," and a dozen other gothic supernatural chillers, yet the result doesn't remotely scare you.
  21. Don't go expecting an escapist night at the movies; go expecting to be cudgeled into numb, drooling submission.
  22. The movie, which strains to be hip in a faux-1985 beat-the-system way, takes such a light view of cheating that it has the ironic effect of rendering the heist that follows utterly innocuous.
  23. A few more films like Tears of the Black Tiger, and kitsch will be on its way to having a bad name.
  24. It's both exhausting and laughable in its eagerness to shock. That's the bad news. The worse news is that Volume II comes out next month.
  25. Director Stephen Herek (Mr. Holland's Opus) and screenwriter Tom Schulman (Dead Poets Society) offer no clues, no challenges, nothing to provoke the smallest bubble of curiosity in an audience that waits 40 minutes only to realize Oh, I get it, this isn't going to be Eddie Murphy Funny!
  26. The Wedding Ringer is such a crudely edited, slapdash affair it often forgets about the characters it has introduced — especially the women.
