  1. This is the rare horror film so bad that you almost wish it had turned into a good old connect-the-gory-dots slasher movie. The only mystery at work is how Lawrence's agent ever let her sign on to this.
  2. With jokes this lame you won't have to worry as much about your children getting any bad ideas.
  3. You will still be astonished by how flat-out awful it is.
  4. The jokes are flaccid, the acting is stiff, and the whole idea is such a boner, you have to wonder if the writer was missing another critical organ when he came up with it.
  5. Abysmally stupid drama.
  6. I didn't think Matthew Perry could find a romantic comedy more inert or inane than the 1997 fiasco ''Fools Rush In.''
  7. This may be the first talking-animal movie in which the critter hero seems to have been body-snatched by a commentator from C-SPAN.
  8. A half hour in and still, the plot, tone, and setting are incomprehensible.
  9. The trouble with Whipped isn't that its characters are dirty mouthed horndog jerks -- it's that they're phony dirty mouthed horndog jerks.
  10. There is not one honest moment, not ONE, in Hanging Up.
  11. Rancid, misogynist comedy.

    Debased swill.
  12. As an actor, Raymond is whiny and annoying, but not nearly so much as the film.
  13. Just... bad. As in BAD bad.
  14. Even Snow Day's winter wonderland looks fake.
  15. Viewers will never be molly-fied by this tripe.
  16. An inept low-budget thriller.
  17. The film isn't just bad; it's a barely coherent, inert mess -- a heart-tugger for voidoids.
  18. Why would filmmakers with this much talent work this hard to thumb their noses at everything they put on screen?
  19. The comedy is nonexistent.
  20. This may be the only would-be blockbuster that's a sprawling, dissociated mess on purpose. It's a perverse landmark: the first postmodern Hollywood disaster.
  21. Poisonously smug, one-joke indie comedy.
  22. A movie so unhinged it practically dares you not to hate it.
  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. Personally, I'd say that it was about time Arquette was leashed.
  25. It's a shrill, stupid, brickbat-blatant piece of hackwork that practically sweats to be ''commercial.''
  26. It's like ''Grease: The Next Generation'' acted out by the food-court staff at SeaWorld.
  27. The picture is so lethargic that I began to think of watching it as a form of atonement.
  28. If you look hard, you can make out a story in Femme Fatale, but it has nothing to do with the senseless pileup of jewel thievery, shutterbug voyeurism, and leggy sex bombs so shallow and bad they seem to have come out of a 1978 copy of Hustler magazine.
  29. You know all that artistic cred Adam Sandler built up with his acclaimed work in ''Punch-Drunk Love''? Well, he flushes it down the crapper with Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights -- the most ill-conceived animated comedy since the 1991 dog ''Rover Dangerfield.''
