  1. The entire movie has the meaninglessly burnished, sunglasses-at-midnight glow of an early-'90s car commercial -- a visual scheme guaranteed to leave the audience squinting between yawns.
  2. As distressed as a comedy can be without qualifying as a snow emergency.
  3. Director Peter O'Fallon fires his biggest gun: a blast of Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus, truly heavenly music wasted on a handful of dust.
  4. Three stories by the guy who wrote Trainspotting, banged and smashed into a film by Paul McGuigan with none of Trainspotting's charm and all its grotesquerie.
  5. If you've been longing to see the worst family entertainment of 1966, A Dog of Flanders may be the movie for you.
  6. A distasteful zeitgeist cocktail tracking the booze-fueled sexcapades of eight repellent L.A. singles.
  7. The mood is ruined by the bitchy 1990s stereotyping of the husband hunters.

    Musketeer's fight scenes are underlit, overmiked, and appallingly edited, with none of the spacious grace that even routine Asian action flicks get right. Worse, the narrative scenes make less sense.
  8. This ''satire'' of triple-X raunch and ''Jerry Springer'' sleaze starts off at a pitch of preening dementia and just grows more hysterical from there.
  9. Might best be described as bereavement porn.
  10. Another racial cartoon buddy movie that eagerly flogs its best laugh -- indeed, its only laugh -- in the trailer.
  11. Has a topsy-turvy sense of injustice.

    More than just dumb, the picture is embarrassingly dorky.
  12. Stumbling adaptation of a Sam Shepard play about men, horses, chance, and lies.
  13. The laughs are few in this inert, ungenerous comedy.

    The plot twists fall about as weightily as the fake snow.

    A pox on the man's (E.B. White) memory.
  14. Just coarse, clunky, jerry rigged, and -- worst of all -- not funny.
  15. A convoluted ''dweeb meets the Mob'' farce in which everyone is trying to kill everyone else, but it's the movie that's the real corpse -- albeit a busy, twitching one.
  16. 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?
  17. Torturously whimsical gumshoe caper.

    So what is real? Only the boredom of the audience as the film collapses from one meaningless false-bottom environment to the next.
  18. It's young-Hollywood-driven business as usual in this derivative, nasty, and ultimately empty drama.
  19. Mostly about slapping together a bunch of clichés -- outdated clichés at that -- regarding the loneliness of ambitious women.
  20. Starts out as a neo-Pygmalion comedy, but the film is slow, earnest, and rhythmless.
  21. It's an utterly fake nostalgia piece -- stupid and pandering, a bad-boy teen flick that plays less like a loving look at the late '70s than a terrible movie from the late '70s.
  22. The only performer I enjoyed watching was Martin Short, who plays a bitch dandy music teacher with a smile so fake that the comedian seems to be acting with his gums.
  23. Aa shockingly chintzy spin-off of Fox's post ''Pokémon'' cartoon hit.
  24. Unlike in ''Freaky Friday,'' no magic spells are involved. Nor is there any of ''Freaky'''s marvelous charm in this ungainly Manhattan fairy tale, directed by indulgent sentimentalist Boaz Yakin.
  25. Labored miscalculation of a teen-trend comedy.
