  1. A film not even a star as foxed and foxy as Johnny Depp himself could save.
  2. Has all the mood enhancing flavor of a tropical cocktail made with watered down rum and fake fruit juice.
  3. This toothless thriller...feels like a strained reworking of ''The Fugitive.''

    As campy as a flick by Banderas' evident artistic mentor, Pedro Almódovar.
  4. The characters who cross paths here in the hard shadows of late-'90s New York City are meant to convey loneliness, bitterness, neediness, loss, and bad karma. Mostly, they convey bad Sundance.
  5. This cinematic stiff should have stayed buried.
  6. How lame have high-concept, no-brain comedies gotten?
  7. Nobody's got a clue. Enquiring minds don't even want to know.
  8. A recitation of woes doesn't constitute a plot, and panoramic shots of migrating wildlife don't convey enough African flavor.
  9. McCarthy's rawhide has become movie Naugahyde, a substance unknown in literature or in nature.
  10. The Avengers is too enervated to qualify as even a full-scale disaster.
  11. Few comedies have worked this hard to make everyone on screen look this dumb.
  12. The movie doesn't so much extend Schwartzman's antic outsider persona from ''Rushmore'' as uglify it, reducing him to the ultimate Uncool Anti-WASP.
  13. The endless, numbing sameness of it all.
  14. It just makes you want to flip on the tube to see the real (fake) thing.
  15. Really, the sole favor Dolman does the plucky Hawn is to light her rear end so that its continued gloriousness can be appreciated.
  16. The Medallion makes you long for Tucker -- and for Jackie Chan to fly without digital wings.
  17. Silly, undone by lack of faith in its own subject.
  18. It's like the worst movie Jean-Claude Van Damme never made.
  19. Empty jokes hang heavy.
  20. Features the dullest, least lifelike collection of pals this side of "Eyes Wide Shut."

  21. If you've always longed to see a Cold War satire done in the hit 'em over the head frantic camp mode of ''Love, American Style,'' then Company Man is the movie for you.
  22. No worse than any disease-of-the-week TV movie, and no more moralistic than any Lifetime drama. But it's no better, either, and it ought to be.
    • 25 Metascore

    Bogusly wholesome six-gun dud.
  23. This rusty jalopy of a movie, which is so ramshackle it's nearly enough to make you forget how tossed-together the 1976 ''Car Wash'' was.
  24. Tells a moldy-oldie, not-nearly-as-nasty-as-it-thinks-it-is joke. Over and over again.
  25. A demented, orgiastically gory vampire/sex parable.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    A tired action thriller determined to play the race card every which way for every which kind of viewer, seems hopelessly behind the curve.
  26. Without any of the patented Farrelly insight into the insecure, horndoggy teen in every man, and without a grown-up setting in which Harry and Lloyd can transgress like dum-dum geniuses,Dumb and Dumberer is dumberest.
  27. It's hard to say what's more excruciating: Alex's novel, which is like ''The Great Gatsby'' rewritten by Lizzie McGuire, or his quarrelsome flirtation with Emma, who has no existence as a character apart from her drive to reshape Alex into a specimen of respectable tamed manhood.
