  1. Simply put, it may be the lamest movie ever made about poor white... Southern characters.
  2. Lowest-common-denominator humor.
  3. Feeling Minnesota suggests Sam Shepard trying to be Quentin Tarantino. It makes even gun battles seem pretentious.
  4. By the end, you feel like a drill sergeant-you want to wipe that stupid grin off Sandler's face.
  5. Screenwriter Kevin Williamson (the Scream trilogy), having bottomed out in the horror genre, now dips below bottom (there isn't a line that has his knowing sweet-and-sour zing).
  6. Antal has assembled what may be the single most colorless group of mangy lowlifes I have ever seen.

    State Property 2 is no more three-dimensional than your average brand-name-laden hip-hop video.
  7. Because the script, riddled with verbal ugliness by David Elliot and Paul Lovett, sends the movie to a series of arbitrary nowheres, the final showdown for the Mercer boys and their enemies is just as meaningless and sense-deadening.
  8. So badly told that it ends up dissecting a corruption that exudes from nowhere but itself.
  9. As Brier's comrade-in-lip-gloss, Ashlee Simpson, dressed to look like a teenybop girl version of Crispin Glover in "River's Edge," is the real deal -- in fake cred.
  10. What Emily doesn't do, though -- what this slow-moving, sour, sloppily assembled teen drama doesn't allow her to do -- is make her predicament of any emotional interest.
  11. The loserville teen comedy Underclassman is like a student project sloppily cribbed from other kids' notes -- kids who have seen "Rush Hour" and still can't get over how funny it is to stick a noisy black guy in a distinctly nonblack setting.
  12. A mud-simple horror trudge set in a swamp colony of Abercrombie models.
  13. The movie is trash shot to look like art imitating trash.

    Does a very thorough job of reducing every recognizable member of the cast to probable career lows.
  14. Atrociously scripted and edited.
  15. When a Stranger Calls is ba-a-a-a-c-k, in frightless form, updated for the age of anytime minutes and caller ID.
  16. The movie lacks even the misplaced fervor of obsession. It's lifeless kitsch.

    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.
  17. The mangy joke in the defiantly homemade documentary 95 Miles to Go is that Ray Romano on a business trip is no different from any other schmo, minus the autograph signing.
  18. Don't let the Carl Hiaasen pedigree fool you: Hoot is an Afterschool Special too crummy to give a hoot about.
  19. Tedious.

    Astonishingly (and offensively), the witless ending comes down harder on the women than the cad.
  20. A glumly serious British mock rock doc: You could forgive the paucity of jokes if Brothers of the Head had anything to say, or if the '70s-vérité surface were remotely convincing.
  21. In a feat of dullness quite powerful in its own way, this lifeless family comedy sucks the joy from every joke it touches.
  22. This dank and rhythmless ''psychological'' potboiler was directed by Jamie Babbit, who made 2000's "But I'm a Cheerleader," and though she has shifted tones from shrill camp to moody angst in The Quiet, she still thinks in stereotypes so thin that they put you to sleep the moment they open their mouths.

    Unlike "Hostel" or "Wolf Creek," TCM:B is rank and depressing.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Nearly laughless.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Twice as many accidental laughs as scares.
