  1. As the killer, who plucks out his victims' eyeballs, Kane, the seven-foot bald WWE wrestler who's like a modern Tor Johnson, is so inept he's more cuddly than terrifying.
  2. The trouble with Whipped isn't that its characters are dirty mouthed horndog jerks -- it's that they're phony dirty mouthed horndog jerks.
  3. Stupefyingly tedious and annoying.
  4. It's a puzzlement how so many pros could have so wrecked one of the most beloved, hummably familiar movie musicals in the Rodgers and Hammerstein repertoire.
  5. A soporific dud, which should have been tossed out of Sundance.
  6. A somber, draggy, deadweight, lugubrious, absurdly self serious version of ''American Beauty.''
  7. A joke of a title in search of a movie with a single good joke.
  8. Ryan radiates neither desire nor terror. She's freeze-dried in a world of lifelessly abstract feminine fear, and so is the movie.
  9. A movie so unhinged it practically dares you not to hate it.
  10. Oooh, this is toxic.
  11. So perfect in its awfulness, it makes one seriously consider a theory of unintelligent design.
  12. This remake is merely vile (and dull).
  13. She Hate Me manages to be at once racist, homophobic, utterly fake, and unbearably tedious. This time, it's Spike Lee who's doing the bamboozling.
  14. It appears to have been modeled on the worst revenge-of-the-nerds clichés the filmmakers could dredge up.

    Debased swill.
  15. Even Snow Day's winter wonderland looks fake.
  16. Being Human doesn't seem to be about anything: Its five astonishingly limp parables might have been spun by a depressed Aesop who forgot to take his Prozac.
  17. The film treats its audience like fidgety junior-high schoolers, piling on the sub-Koyaanisqatsi cityscapes and cheesy episodes with Marlee Matlin as a lonely photographer, plus bouncy cartoons of human cells who look as if they'd be happier chasing stains in bathroom-cleanser commercials.
  18. It's a shrill, stupid, brickbat-blatant piece of hackwork that practically sweats to be ''commercial.''
  19. What sin did Heather Locklear commit to deserve her role in The Perfect Man?
  20. To dismiss this movie for being ''offensive'' would be to offer it high praise.
  21. A half hour in and still, the plot, tone, and setting are incomprehensible.
  22. Benigni's Pinocchio is meant to be adorable, but he comes off as less an enchanted puppet than as a harmlessly deranged middle-aged man prancing about in the kind of froufrou cream-colored pantsuit that Dinah Shore retired to her back closet in 1977.
  23. In one rotten production -- all involved have managed to create the most unlikable, man hating, woman hating, unfunny idiots since ''Whipped'' ended up on worst movie lists last year.
  24. A stinker, the more so for the thespian excesses of the accomplished cast.
  25. The only thing shocking about it, however, is the degree to which self-congratulatory gutter exhibitionism has become the degraded ash end of indie ''edge.''
  26. The picture is so lethargic that I began to think of watching it as a form of atonement.
  27. It might be courting hyperbole to call Corky Romano the single worst movie ever to feature an ''SNL'' cast member (Dan Aykroyd hit some pretty arid valleys), but I'm willing to go out on a critical limb and rank it among the all-time bottom dozen.
  28. A magical-realist sitcom war farce that ends up being about nothing but its own slovenly smugness.
  29. Parts of the film play like the world's slowest and most insensitive reality show (Who Wants to Be an Octogenarian?).
