  1. A soulless, witless, landfill contraption that Smith once would have mocked mercilessly.
  2. Never achieves takeoff.
  3. Men in Black 3 is so dull and empty, it's the first movie that has ever made me think "Thank God this is in 3D."
  4. The things that stay with you are the dull, boilerplate love story, the laziest performance of Liam Neeson’s career as a murderous gunslinger and the distracting amount of makeup Seth MacFarlane sports in the film.
  5. Even the most forgiving moviegoer will recognize this movie as the blatant cash-grab that it is.
  6. Shyamalan takes the beloved Nickelodeon anime series -- the full title was Avatar: The Last Airbender -- and turns it into 103 minutes of overproduced, stilted nonsense.
  7. Fantastic Four is so bereft of all the things we expect from a superhero movie — humor, excitement, adventure, awe — that it plays like a drawn-out pilot episode for an upcoming TV series no one would ever watch again.
  8. The movie, however, is the sort of picture in which people run around doing everything except the most logical thing to do, because that’s the only way to keep the nonsensical plot spinning.
  9. Jack and Jill contains long stretches of squirm-inducing tedium in which Sandler riffs and ad-libs far longer than he should.
  10. If Annapolis is not the worst movie to date of this still-young year, it is certainly the most hackneyed, as well as the most depressing.
  11. It's a cannibalization of "Sleeping With the Enemy," a not-so-good Julia Roberts film, with a ridiculous female-empowerment subtext and a relentlessly stupid script that goes nowhere you can't predict before the opening credits roll.
  12. An invasion of the body snatchers is preferable to realizing that the true horror perpetrated here is not on the characters but on the audience.
  13. Looks exquisite, but don't bother digging deeper.
  14. Watching Wilson and Hudson toil thanklessly through this mess is more laborious than writing the Great American Novel. And a lot less lucrative.
  15. Sitting through Little Fockers is a soul-sucking, dispiriting experience.
  16. There isn’t a moment of spontaneous fun or humor in this long, turgid movie, the latest let-down for rabid DC Comics fans who’ve been waiting for someone to pick up the baton Christopher Nolan left behind and do this universe justice. With “Suicide Squad,” the long wait continues.
  17. For a movie that's all about camouflage, this sketch comedy epilogue turns out to be its most creative disguise: a thin coating of humor slapped on an otherwise ponderous film.
  18. Who writes this stuff, anyway? Does this not sound like utter gibberish? Surely, this film did not actually get made, did it? Yes, it did. I have seen it. But you, oh, fortunate one, don't have to. Consider yourself lucky.
  19. Every summer movie season usually has at least one spectacular, disastrous flame-out, and although the dog days of August still loom, I doubt there will come a big-budget blockbuster worse than Cowboys and Aliens.
  20. The problem with Revolver is that it is Ritchie's first attempt at a ''serious'' look at the underworld, but the result is so pretentious and muddled it's almost a little embarrassing.
  21. So needlessly convoluted, so crammed with subplots within subplots, it simply forgets about its gangland "Romeo & Juliet" premise.

    Skip the movie and pick up the videos at Toys R Us.
  22. Berliner deserves something better, as do all the actors -- even Moore, who's starting to look very interesting and European.
  23. Lands with a thud right from its painfully unfunny prologue and maintains its plodding, exasperating course straight through to its car-chase-and-shootout finale.
  24. The more Shrink tries to get you invested in the emotional turmoil of its characters, the more you want to reach into the screen and shake them and tell them to get over themselves.
  25. After a while, hearing Martin say ''Zee area eez zecure!'' doesn't cut it any longer, and that's pretty much all The Pink Panther has to offer.
  26. Deadly dull.

    Too small to be a spectacle, too humorless to take seriously and too stupid to pass muster at a middle school writing workshop.
  27. But if My Date With Drew is what passes for filmmaking these days, the movie industry is in more trouble than we thought.
  28. Few expected Basic Instinct 2 to be very good, but no one expected it to be this boring.
