    A terrible, tired piece of filmmaking.
  1. Drop Dead Gorgeous eventually shows that it doesn't like anybody -- in the movie or in the audience.
  2. About an hour after you've seen it, you'll already be fuzzy on just who was screwing who, and why
  3. Visually stunning but emotionally shallow.
  4. It's insulting and devalues the experience of watching not just this film but all films.
  5. But as objectionable as its subject matter is, the most objectionable thing is that it's not funny.
  6. A dud. Neither sweet nor low-down enough by half.
  7. Recycled "Steel Magnolias."
  8. By any measure, 'Temptation' ranks amongst Tyler Perry's worst.

    The screenplay is far too obsessed with the setup, and not at all concerned with making the villains even the least bit believable or scary.
  9. The prolific 76-year-old British creator of character-rich, social dramas steeped in natural realism (usually) has whiffed it and whiffed it hard with this one. It’s not that it’s just “lesser Loach.” It is, in my opinion at least, humiliating.
  10. Naming aside, Epic could have been good, except that it wasn’t, it was stone cold terrible, something even a six-year-old might scoff at. I know, I’m just as sad as you are about the whole thing.
  11. The whole picture is lifeless and without consequence.
  12. It’s just boring – and boring in a way that apparently has no endgame.
  13. Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 is the worst thing Lars Von Trier has ever associated himself with.
  14. We all have childhoods to remember. Art needs to do more than just remind us.
  15. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isn’t a movie; it’s a brand re-launch that’s going to satisfy stockholders far more than it’s going to entertain the people who paid to watch it.
  16. Cripplingly lifeless.
  17. Plainly unfunny.
  18. The best word to describe it is strange, though it could have been halfway decent (yes, all the way up to halfway decent) if the third act hadn’t succumbed to the crescendo of craziness that had been building for the first hour.
  19. The Lifeguard is a painfully dull (alleged) drama utterly lacking in originality or self-awareness.
  20. Even when compared against other films that have been adapted from Nicholas Sparks novels, Safe Haven is terrible.
  21. The most frightening thing about the franchise at this point is that it just keeps on going, undaunted by the characteristics by which the first film made its name. Family is still family and a brand is still a brand, but the blade… well, it’s only grown dull.
  22. Yes, surely for them, the lucky few and probable many, 21 and Over will be the Best Movie Ever. For the rest of us, though, it’s something of a chore.
  23. Assisted by passionless central performances and dull dialogue, Mungiu succeeds only in exhausting our patience, not in conveying a message.
  24. This is a story that has everything you’re looking for, provided that you’re looking for absolutely nothing.
  25. “Expendables 3” has fewer nauseating clichés than The Judge.
  26. A relentlessly unfunny, charmless send-up of better films with better ideas.
  27. The film blinks too fast to maintain a coherent vision.
  28. Good vs. Evil For Dummies....and I, for one, dislike being treated like a Dummy.
