  1. This kingdom really should be forbidden.
  2. Regardless of your personal views, Expelled's heavy-handed bias (a visit to Darwin's home gets the same eerie music as a tour of Dachau) is exasperating.
  3. Everything is wrong pretty much from the start of this misbegotten adventure.
  4. 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.
  5. It's like "Schindler's List" crossed with "The Sound of Music," and Roger Spottiswoode directs it in a stiff, lifeless, utterly dated style of international squareness.
  6. While candy-colored graphics should dazzle kids, Space Chimps has little draw for audiences spoiled by the Pixar-given knowledge that CGI can entertain -- and not just stupefy -- moviegoers of any age.
  7. It's not much fun to see these two reduced to "Mad TV" parodies of themselves.
  8. It's just a grindingly inert death-wish thriller.
  9. While George Lopez, Cheech Marin, and Paul Rodriguez are funny men, it's amazing how boring these Latin-shtick cutups can be when none of them gets a single good line.
  10. Randall Miller (Bottle Shock), appears to be trying to cross a bad Elmore Leonard thriller with a bad indie-festival family-angst comedy. He gives us the worst of both worlds.
  11. An unintentionally ludicrous drama of repentance.
  12. It's a dispirited, galumphing mess.
  13. It all makes you want to see a Bollywood movie, all right -- a good one.

    This predictable film wouldn't be effective anywhere outside a DARE program.
  14. Writer-director-stars Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore, of the Whitest Kids U'Know, here prove the crassest, most maladroit moviemakers you know.
  15. A painfully miscast Parker nervously flips her hair and waves her hands, sitcom-style, as a do-gooding dean of students.
  16. A stillborn rendering of Michael Chabon's first novel.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Don't go expecting an escapist night at the movies; go expecting to be cudgeled into numb, drooling submission.
  17. If the movie doesn't even care about its characters, then how can we?
  18. Isn't it time Steve Zahn grew up? Ever since the '90s, this walking quirk of an actor has pushed his dazed solipsistic zaniness (he's like Michael J. Fox’s hillbilly cousin), but he's 41 now, and it no longer looks cute on him.
  19. As the brutish Kable, Gerard Butler must find out who's pulling his strings, but it's the audience whose chain gets yanked by this headache-inducing techno-violent mishmash.
  20. No authentic emotion of any kind happens in this damp, Seattle-based romance, a fizzle for both stars.
  21. The result is a sub-"Saw" knockoff that manages to be brutal yet monotonous, not to mention monstrously unpleasant.
    • 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.
  22. The thinnest, draggiest, and most tediously preachy of the Saw films.
  23. A ponderous dystopian bummer that might be described as "The Road Warrior" without car chases, or "The Road" without humanity.
  24. A creepy, humiliating ''comedy,'' playing to Bullock's worst instincts for demonstrating the lovability of women who don’t fit in.
  25. Whenever an actress takes on a gritty working-class role, the audience does a gut check of authenticity. Either the actress gets it, like Melissa Leo did in "Frozen River," or she doesn't, like Michelle Monaghan as the spoilin'-for-a-fight truck-driver heroine of the inert indie dud Trucker
  26. Earns points only for being remarkably unself-conscious about its across-the-board ineptitude.
  27. The answers he strings together are babble in this superficial vanity documentary. Nice shots of awesome, God-approved scenery, though.
