    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.
  1. 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.
  2. Don't let the Carl Hiaasen pedigree fool you: Hoot is an Afterschool Special too crummy to give a hoot about.
  3. Tedious.

    Astonishingly (and offensively), the witless ending comes down harder on the women than the cad.
  4. 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.
  5. In a feat of dullness quite powerful in its own way, this lifeless family comedy sucks the joy from every joke it touches.
  6. 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.
    • 33 Metascore

    Get Lucy Liu better roles!
  7. A few more films like Tears of the Black Tiger, and kitsch will be on its way to having a bad name.
  8. Hannibal Rising reduces this great creature of the pop imagination to a Eurotrash Boy Scout throwing a homicidal snit fit.
  9. Murphy speaks in a breathy lisp, as if his mouth had been partially buttoned shut, and he doesn't give himself the nerd's traditional redeeming feature of a geeky, slide-rule intellect. Norbit, all frozen gawk, is just a very dim bulb.

    Lake and Fraser never come close to believability as a romantic couple. There's more chemistry going on in a grain of salt.

    Atrocious sequel.
  10. A crappy thriller gussied up with a chrome-plated veneer.
  11. Chatwin comes off as prickly and annoyed -- they should have called this "Perturbia."
  12. An immediately forgettable action pic directed with a blowtorch by Lee Tamahori.
  13. Vampire in Brooklyn is a horror comedy that mixes lame blood-pellet effects with lame gags, and it clunks along on a series of interchangeably deserted streets that manage to look dank and overlit at the same time.
  14. Last Action Hero makes such a strenuous show of winking at the audience (and itself) that it seems to be celebrating nothing so much as its own awfulness. In a sense, the movie's incipient commercial failure completes it aesthetically.
  15. The most irritating thing about Hoffa is that even after you've sat through Danny DeVito's turgid, meaninglessly sprawling account of the Teamster boss' rise and fall, you still won't have any idea who Jimmy Hoffa was.
  16. It's like a film-school thesis gone disastrously wrong.
  17. Inert dud of a hitmen-are-people-too comedy.
  18. Director Sean Ellis has a lovely eye, but he's set the film in his blind spot. Not only can't he distinguish between art and porn, savoring and wallowing, universal truths and exhausted clichés -- he doesn't even seem interested in these distinctions.
  19. In a season of digital bombast, it can be a relief to walk into a stodgy life-of-the-great-man costume drama. Goya's Ghosts, before it turns into a messy, horse-drawn load, achieves a civilized stuffiness that gives off its own mild pleasure.

    Filling in for Eddie Murphy in a septically humored kiddie sequel to "Daddy Day Care," Gooding gives a mug-job performance that consists mainly of reacting (again and again) to nasty smells.
  20. The audience gets the message (religious fanaticism: bad), but nothing we see is convincing on its own.
  21. The morality of revenge is barely at issue in a movie that pushes the plausibility of revenge right over a cliff.
