  1. It tries to toe the line between romantic comedy and vulgar pseudo-satire and fails at both.
  2. It's such a dumb movie, it's hard to believe it wasn't an SNL sketch first.
  3. There's nothing but a convoluted overcast of story with a monsoon of bad dialogue.
  4. The end result is stale, clumsy, and about as compelling as an average episode of "As the World Turns."
  5. A typical end-of-the-year dump film, in that there's almost no reason to see it.
  6. A stupid summer movie.
  7. Affleck may finally have found a use for his obnoxious personality, because Drew is amazingly annoying.

    Polson offers up a few chilling scares, but the underwritten screenplay really does show off its weaknesses.
  8. One such feeble miscue that can't be saved by the star power of Joe Pesci and David Spade.
  9. It’s just a mess.

    Lisa Kudrow, the designated comic relief, has never been so consistently unfunny, and Gina Gershon looks uncomfortable in every (pseudo-)inspirational moment.
  10. It's performances like these that make it so easy to forget that, when he wants to, Costner can indeed act and be an appealing star.

    It is definitely the weakest movie of the Weitz catalog and will certainly be forgotten faster than Hung himself.
  11. A frozen pile of reindeer droppings. The cinematic equivalent to passing a kidney stone, Zwigoff’s unholy foray into “dark comedy” gives us a suicidal, sociopathic drunk slinging swear words with a ferocity that would make Tony Montana wince.

    The movie fails on nearly every level. The film is has good intentions and moments of energy, but it's merely a faint echo of the great 1960s counterculture pictures.
  12. Since Equilibrium shamelessly rips off every Orwellian science fiction thriller in film history, what other reason is there besides sheer desperation for the film to be so stupidly violent?
  13. The love story that is supposed to drive the film fails to ignite a single spark--and, hence, the film fails to generate a single iota of interest from the viewer.
  14. Seriously, it's a bad sign for your "kids movie" when the kids in question are asking their parents, "When is something going to happen?"
  15. The title not only describes its main characters, but the lazy people behind the camera as well.
  16. Laughter erupts during scenes and certain close-ups that were designed to induce screams.
  17. Add another one to the scrap heap of trendy, nostalgic, 60's and 70's TV shows reduced to cinematic rubble by the inspiration starved minds in Hollywood.
  18. Holy Man is just a dumb romantic comedy passing itself off as something else.
  19. Is this what Sean Penn has come to in his 40s? He hasn't appeared this retarded since he was married to Madonna.
  20. There's a fine line between inspiration and manipulation, and from its first frame, Joshua crosses it and never looks back.
  21. Tiresome, trite and choked with every lousy Dixie-fried stereotype imaginable.

    All the while Madea's wit, which is refreshing on the stage, feels spurious and often misfires.
  22. Little more than a travelogue designed to show off the grandeur of the Hermitage, with the silly actors in fancy costumes getting in the way of the paintings and sculptures on display.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    This is the sort of film that fails on every single aspect it aims for.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The humor is boring and in most spots inappropriate for children.
  23. If What Happens in Vegas... serves any purpose, it's to make me consider spending my gambling money in Reno or on a riverboat instead.
