  1. A nonsensical mishmash.
  2. The movie is a mess.
  3. Mud-stained, blood-soaked and completely useless.
  4. Limp direction, laughable production values, accent-heaving acting and dialogue and more lumps than three-day-old oatmeal.
  5. One of the least endurable films of 1999.
  6. Not a very good movie; it's sentimental, pandering and psychologically anorexic.
  7. The real problem is that it's not a very good Hollywood film, and its flaccid style, cardboard characters, and paint-by-the-numbers plot make watching it a chore.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    So relentlessly vanilla that it never springs to life.
  8. Derivative, cliché-ridden and old hat.
  9. The visual fireworks and catchy score just underline the extreme superficiality of the material.

    Seems to be an exercise not unlike the phone-booth stuffing of the '50s; namely, let's see how much plot we can fit into a movie before it bursts.

    Stretched too thin, looks cheap, and can't quite go the distance.

    Appears to be several different movies spliced together, with unfortunate results.
  10. It has every element necessary to be a classic, and it never comes anywhere near achieving that potential.
  11. What we have here is a small story in an oversized setting.
  12. Hopefully, the next time around, Chadha's imagination will be in the service of not just excellent casting and directing, but a script to match those other cinematic components.
  13. Ephron is still a director whose movies veer uncomfortably between the good -- make that adequate -- "You've Got Mail", the bad "This Is My Life" and the ugly Lucky Numbers. Pity.
  14. Full of sound and fury, signifying absolutely nothing, End of Days is the loudest and least of the year's end-of-the-world movies.
  15. It's all quite precious, just not in a good way: "Postmodern" to a fault, deeply shallow, infuriatingly trite.
  16. Stardom just doesn't have enough anger or conviction to carry it to a satisfying finish.
  17. It's very much like a porn film without the porn, and that's about as bad as it gets.
  18. As with most non-Disney animated features, Trumpet of the Swan does make the Mouse look like a genius.
  19. Little entertainment value.
  20. A largely unenlightening work.
  21. A One-Joke Show.
  22. You'll laugh, but you'll hate yourself by the time you're out of the theater.
  23. In trying to avoid moralizing or cheap sensationalizing, Didier sidestepped any energy force altogether and his film snoozes because of it.
  24. This overdone project dissipates its energy in strange ways (sudden shifts to black-and-white, as though hailing the spirit of Oliver Stone and that other Costner JFK movie), and makes you wish its makers had shown the same restraint the government did during the crisis.
  25. There is no obvious reason for the film's meandering existence: it's a series of beautifully photographed postcards of Africa.
  26. It just doesn't work. Worse, it's downright offensive.
