  1. It barely boasts enough funny material to fill four minutes.
  2. Orphan isn't scary -- it's garish and plodding.
  3. This remake is merely vile (and dull).
  4. An immediately forgettable action pic directed with a blowtorch by Lee Tamahori.
  5. A movie so unhinged it practically dares you not to hate it.
  6. After enduring only a few minutes of this shrill debacle, you'll feel more trapped in the theater than Jimmy is by his bubble.
  7. Director Stephen Herek (Mr. Holland's Opus) and screenwriter Tom Schulman (Dead Poets Society) offer no clues, no challenges, nothing to provoke the smallest bubble of curiosity in an audience that waits 40 minutes only to realize Oh, I get it, this isn't going to be Eddie Murphy Funny!
  8. If you want to know how inept the movie is...well, it's so inept that you may wish you were watching an M. Night Shyamalan version of the very same premise.
  9. While George Lopez, Cheech Marin, and Paul Rodriguez are funny men, it's amazing how boring these Latin-shtick cutups can be when none of them gets a single good line.

    Astonishingly (and offensively), the witless ending comes down harder on the women than the cad.
  10. Has all the mood enhancing flavor of a tropical cocktail made with watered down rum and fake fruit juice.
  11. Stumbling adaptation of a Sam Shepard play about men, horses, chance, and lies.
  12. Becomes yet another lame sports farce.
  13. A failing-grade comedy about the wishful triumph of high school dorks over high school bullies.
  14. Passengers is not very good. In fact, it’s pretty bad.
  15. Running is a fevered smashup, as if Hollywood dug up Sam Peckinpah's corpse and forced it to adapt "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" for the screen.
  16. The movie is a true folly, yet there's no denying that Gilliam has gotten some of the hallucinogenic madness of Thompson's novel on screen.
  17. Hop
    It's "Alvin and the Chipmunks" with only one chipmunk, and (if possible) even less fun.
  18. Nightwatch is a horror for reasons that have nothing to do with suspenseful moviemaking.
  19. Garish, squeal-pitched preteen comedy.
  20. This toothless thriller...feels like a strained reworking of ''The Fugitive.''
  21. It's like a pastry that's been sitting on the shelf for 60 years.
  22. As a shameless contraption of ridiculously sad things befalling attractive people, the engorged romantic tragedy Remember Me stands tall between those towering monuments to teen-oriented cinematic misery, Love Story and Twilight.
  23. This rote exorcism-is-real claptrap.
  24. A soporific dud, which should have been tossed out of Sundance.
  25. Stops time, all right -- it stretches 94 minutes into something that begins to feel like infinity.
  26. An inept low-budget thriller.
  27. Pushes and pushes and pushes the emotional throttle without respite.
  28. Stuart Townsend, Theron's reallife boyfriend, may have inner fires as an actor that have yet to be revealed, but in Head in the Clouds he's a somber puppy who looks as if Theron could eat him alive. I wish she had.
  29. A demented, orgiastically gory vampire/sex parable.
