  1. A Scottish weepie of such bathos and balderdash that it deserves a drinking game in its rotten honor.
  2. The definition of aiming low is when the John Hughes film you're ripping off is ''Weird Science."

  3. Maybe the worst thing that can happen is that every other movie at the multiplex will be sold out this weekend.
  4. Here's a sobering thought: If every war gets the comedy it deserves, could Delta Farce, a strenuously unfunny "Three Amigos" knockoff, be our M*A*S*H?
  5. Under the direction of Entourage's Mark Mylod, the movie not only makes cheap sex jokes but looks skanky, too. Lighting, camerawork, and editing are all a slapdash mess, one that further hinders the actors trying their best to get through this failed hookup of a comedy.
  6. A crude, silly supernatural thriller.
  7. The cast itself is weirdly overqualified.
  8. You will still be astonished by how flat-out awful it is.
  9. The movie wants so badly to be mentioned in the same breath as "Heathers" or "Election" that it's not even funny. Really, I mean it, this charred-black comedy is not even funny.
  10. Shainberg reduces this most disturbing of all photographers to a portraitist of Halloween.
  11. The third helping of ''American Pie'' offers little more than crumbs. Half the franchise's core cast (including Mena Suvari, Chris Klein, and Tara Reid) chose to skip the big fat geek wedding.
  12. All I know is that something has gone terribly, drum-beatingly wrong in Congo (Paramount, PG-13), and you can sense Jungle Trouble brewing from the git-go.
  13. To a character, every man in this faux-homey burg has been castrated! They're all impotent buffoons!
  14. An appreciation that the pain is personal doesn't compensate for the picture's self-absorbed need to alienate.

    Videogames are no longer brainless, so why are videogame movies so slow to evolve?
  15. Schaeffer's howler of a romantic comedy, which presents itself as a valentine to Clayburgh even as it keeps dreaming up fresh ways to humiliate her.

    It's nearly unwatchable, a farrago of confusing direction, stupid plot coincidences, and banal dialogue.
  16. Angel-A shows how director Luc Besson can be French in a way that even the French might despise...Quel ick. And très tedious.

    It's not "Clueless," just clueless.
  17. Darkness Falls is like something salvaged from Stephen King's wastebasket.
  18. Don't be fooled by the low grade: This sequel-in-spirit to Jean-Claude Van Damme's 1994 dud doesn't even succeed in being memorably bad.
  19. Becomes yet another lame sports farce.
  20. Serves up the sort of shrill ''satire'' of middle-class Jewish vulgarity in which the mere mention of words like ''brisket'' and ''klezmer'' is automatically presumed to be hilarious.
  21. Selma Blair, the one vibrant actress in a cast of colorless screamers (including Tom Welling from Smallville and Maggie Grace from Lost), takes Adrienne Barbeau's old role.
  22. Spectacularly poor judgment in everything from acting to costuming (Olsen's Harajuku-troll get-up is scarier than her curse) puts Beastly right on the cusp of the so-bad-it's-good Hall of Shame.
  23. Horror standbys like mangled corpses and stone-faced children pop up regularly, but sibling directors Charles and Thomas Guard haven't quite nailed the genre's rhythms.
  24. An aggressively inept demon-seed chiller starring a bunch of grown-ups who should've known better.
  25. Ultraviolet, warns someone, ''Don't overthink it.'' Sage advice for anyone masochistic enough to watch this pile of poorly pixelated vampire poo.

    A painful comedy that reduces the "Garden State" star to pratfalls while many comic A-teamers around him (including Paul Rudd and Amy Adams) play idiots.
  26. The movie, a shoddy mess, is a bargain-basement rip-off of ''Ronin."
