  1. Oddly, Bully's only moments of power come at the film's end, after the crime takes place.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  2. A big disappointment. It's toe-tappin' tripe aimed squarely at the undiscerning Britney Spears set.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  3. Whenever we're not at the ballpark, the film falls back on teenage relationship clichés. That's most of what's wrong with it, actually.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  4. One more attempt to pass off chopped liver as foie gras.
  5. It's dull, two-dimensional, and totally toothless.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  6. A mockumentary about small-town beauty pageants that's so confidently unfunny it's DOA.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  7. An absurdist semi-romance between two traumatized somnambulists.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  8. This predictable romantic comedy outing has occasional flickers of ingenuity.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  9. Messy, frantic, and repetitive, Everybody Famous! takes on both vapid pop culture and the mindless hoi polloi that consumes it.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  10. Even Foxx's lively comedy is lost in the noise.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  11. This one's all labor pains, and, in the end, nothing gets delivered.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  12. Pie 2 has neither undercurrent, and hence what was passably cute the first time seems much more puerile and shrill here.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  13. This is nothing more than one more run-of-the-mill, surprise-free, suspense programmer.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  14. Struggles for any kind of movement and cohesion -- and most of all for any kind of humor.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  15. Reitman has truly lost his gift for comic rhythms, cluttering up the film with running yuks that aren't that funny the first time and certainly don't improve with repetition.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  16. By the time Rock Star reaches its cop-out, "All About Eve"-ish ending, the only thrashing that should be going on is of the filmmakers, for bungling such a promising premise.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  17. Indulges in enough grubby histrionics and costume-adventure cliches to give you fifth-grade flashbacks.
  18. What comes before and after the sound and fury of the bombing raid are reams of banal dialogue.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  19. All that this really amounts to is a lot of hot-headed, hairy men threatening each other -- whenever they're not dancing on table tops, that is.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  20. The most obvious casualty ends up being Jennifer Jason Leigh, an actress known for her fearless choices, who is literally pissed on for her trouble.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  21. A matted hairball of a kiddie flick that's alternately maudlin and slapstickishly violent.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  22. Game boys and girls will be disappointed by this fast-paced but shockingly dull adaptation.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  23. Offers nothing but tired "Red Shoe" Diaries-style sexploitation for the art-house crowd.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  24. Opting for this refried mash over Lee's rentable beauty is like choosing canned beans over an Asian feast.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  25. The worst thing about The Animal -- is how frequently it becomes boring.
  26. Relevant message aside, there's no good reason to sit through photographer Neal Slavin's directorial debut.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  27. Ultimately, Grateful Dawg will only be of real interest to musicology students and diehard Deadheads.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  28. As its plot is entirely negligible, whether or not you enjoy One Night at McCool's probably depends on how funny you think the performances are.
  29. It's all well-acted and eerily compelling, but the shocker ending is patently implausible.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  30. That's just not enough to recommend it, though it does have one moment of real justice: The person sentenced to jail has truly bad hair.
    • Mr. Showbiz
