  1. If you love your mother, do not make her see this movie.

    Twice as many accidental laughs as scares.
  2. Murphy speaks in a breathy lisp, as if his mouth had been partially buttoned shut, and he doesn't give himself the nerd's traditional redeeming feature of a geeky, slide-rule intellect. Norbit, all frozen gawk, is just a very dim bulb.
  3. Anderson has made a zombie movie without the zombies.
  4. The title Addicted to Fame hints that Giancola knows enough to count himself among the hooked. But the crappiness of this documentary about a crappy parody of a crappy B movie suggests that he hasn't kicked the habit.
  5. It's a gussied-up sorority-of-rising-stars project produced, I fantasize, by baby-boomer studio guys whose younger spouses articulately defend a woman's right to stay home and raise the kids.
  6. Homophobic, sex-phobic, maybe even human-phobic.

    More than just dumb, the picture is embarrassingly dorky.
  7. Is less an end in itself than an excuse, a jumping off point for showy, contrived, borderline exploitation sequences that fail to tie together because they're not really there to do anything but sell themselves as money shot thrills.
  8. Each man's shtick swells into a frenzy of overacting.
  9. None of the faux icons comes close to being a character. Instead, they are contrasted with a group of nuns who skydive without parachutes. Could this possibly be a metaphor for Korine's filmmaking? It certainly goes splat.
  10. Inert dud of a hitmen-are-people-too comedy.
  11. Atrociously scripted and edited.
  12. This kingdom really should be forbidden.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    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.
  13. 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.
  14. By the end, you feel like a drill sergeant-you want to wipe that stupid grin off Sandler's face.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. It's no insult to Melville to say that he wrote, in effect, the original ''Dilbert.'' This movie, unfortunately, makes ''Dilbert'' look like Melville.
  19. Based on a videogame, Hitman could be the year's dumbest movie.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The tedious flick offers little more than a few scares, and plenty of boobs. And we're not just talking about the cast.
  20. A ponderous dystopian bummer that might be described as "The Road Warrior" without car chases, or "The Road" without humanity.
  21. A cheaply made piece of ''psychological'' occult schlock, subjects you to that depressing stop-and-go rhythm that defines inept fantasy thrillers.
  22. Everything is wrong pretty much from the start of this misbegotten adventure.
  23. 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.''
  24. 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?
