  1. Offers neither horror nor style.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Uneven, unfocused and boring. It is listed as a "black comedy" and while there are humorous moments you will not be laughing much.
  2. More of a hangnail sketch -- no one can come away from this offering with a clue on what makes Wall Street click.

    Christopher Munch wrote and directed this feature and it is nearly impossible not to feel deep-seated anger towards him for what he has wrought on screen.
  3. Veers back and forth between indigestibly syrupy romance and vulgar "ethnic" comedy, with healthy doses of Christian proselytizing thrown in for good measure.
  4. Not since "Peacemaker" have we witnessed such a battle of wits.
  5. An almost constant misfire. From its paper-thin plot to the utterly flat script, virtually nothing works.
  6. Even understanding the audience for which Kicking & Screaming is aiming, it's hard not to notice the flaws.
  7. Dark Water isn't a bad horror movie, simply because it isn’t horror at all: a full hour passes before anything remotely scary occurs, and all the suspenseful scenes take place in the final ten minutes (and are all fully shown in the trailer). What's left is tedium and a seemingly endless build-up to nothing much at all, making it a bad movie. Period.
  8. The movie wastes the talents of its two leads by refusing to take any risks with the material, marching in lockstep to every genre cliché.
  9. Just make sure you exit the theater before Simpson's god-awful version of "These Boots Are Made for Walking" starts playing during the end credits, or you may find yourself taking the straw from your drink and puncturing your own eardrums in self defense.
  10. Remember when John Hughes made small, original, oh say, GOOD movies?
  11. You won’t want to sit through.
  12. Thoroughly obnoxious and relentlessly unfunny comedy.
  13. First-time director James Gartner has managed to whittle away whatever was compelling about the 1966 Miners championship run.

    Takes an unimaginative love story and stretches it as far as possible in an attempt to make it epically grand. Instead, the end result plays out like a George Lucas film without spaceships and lightsabers.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A film that normally someone like Adam Sandler would star in, but for some reason Matthew McConaughey decided to star and show that he's still not funny.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    I never really expected something so utterly lame-brained. Though, the film is not as awful as I've heard, it's quite possibly the laziest script I've ever seen.
  14. Lackluster dialogue, ludicrously unbelievable storyline, and the fact that the entire film looks and sounds like it was shot on a camcorder mean nobody outside of the studio’s target demographic is likely to check this out.
  15. With a clumsy hip-hop score permeating every free inch of the soundtrack and ugly 16mm cinematography that would never be allowed out of Film School 101, the audio-visual experience is a wreck. The quality of Quality of Life is non-existent.

    Even more frustrating than the trite dialogue exchanges, is the robotic performances delivering them. This is Tom Hanks' worst performance is years (maybe even his worst ever). Ron Howard's slothful direction is giant misstep from his previous effort ("Cinderella Man"), relying on techniques and hopefully he won’t repeat it again.
  16. If Cars is indicative of the kind of movie we can expect from Pixar post-Disney merger, well, there's always Miyazaki.
  17. Fails to satisfy.
  18. Lady is more of an ensemble picture, and truly the Cove is the most ethnically diverse and community-minded apartment complex in the continental United States.
  19. Scoop is about 50 minutes of plot padded with 40 minutes of Woody being Woody.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Step Up doesn't want to be new, original, innovative, or fresh, and it makes a point of practicing that guideline at every chance.
  20. The Quiet is best for cheap laughs by jaded moviegoers with absolutely nothing better to do with their time.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Sadly, the greatness of Jaa's movements are drowned by an ocean of bad editing, terrible dubbing, disorienting action sequences, and repetitive fight sequences that feel as if they were copied straight from a side-scrolling videogame like "Streets of Rage."
  21. It looks stylish, sure, but the script is laughable and the acting is ridiculous.
  22. The film is professionally made but a thorough bore at every imaginable level.
