  1. In this unpleasant mess of a movie, a heroin-like drug called "blue" is said to be "more addictive than air."
  2. This dismally strained comedy defies laughs and doesn't contain an ounce of internal logic.
  3. A desperately unfunny comedy that wastes a brand-name cast.
  4. It's brain-dead start to finish.
  5. A one-joke idea...wears itself out almost instantly.
  6. Derivative to the point of distraction.
  7. A failed experiment in magical realism that makes you wonder where the magic went.
  8. Never gets at what makes Quek tick.
  9. If you haven't had enough of the Central Park rampage videos showing human nature at its worst, you could always pay to see Boricua's Bond.
  10. You may need fortification for this astonishingly bad movie.
  11. Just about every race and creed come off badly in this small-scale thriller.
  12. Unfocused and shrill.
  13. We're left with virtually no insight into the appeal of a movement that lasted 30 years.
  14. If you want pretentious and unsavory, check out Buddy Boy.
  15. There ought to be a law about transporting humor internationally.
  16. This documentary doesn't probe too deeply, and it presupposes that there is a general interest in Jeremy commensurate with his Q rating among the porn-renting public.
  17. Boring is too active a verb to describe this minimalist psychological thriller.
  18. Hell is sitting through a movie in which you have no respect for the protagonist and the "surprise" ending is as clearly lit as the exit sign.
  19. Slackers depends on the pathetic Ethan and the flatulent Sam for most of its laughs, and both characters are more revolting than amusing.
  20. Screenwriters look to many sources for inspiration. In the case of Saving Silverman, they looked behind them, and liked what they saw.
  21. Dev Anand's unintentionally hilarious Bollywood romance would be considered terrible by any artistic standard, but it serves as proof that sometimes the worst films make for the most fun.
  22. It's enough to encourage the aspiring film makers in the audience, no matter how wee in age, to yell "Cut!"
  23. See it only if potty-training is still the most vivid life experience in your book of memories.
  24. You've got to give Norm Macdonald credit. When he cheats his audience, he warns them first.
  25. So lacking in insight and gravity that it makes Dahmer seem like a pesky, pasty-faced loser who just wasn't popular enough.
  26. Shows what can happen when a bunch of good actors get together without adult supervision. They emote all over the place, banging into each other, talking too loud, knocking over furniture, wallowing in clichés and otherwise behaving like rank amateurs.
  27. Certainly a dark spirit is hovering over this inane production. Something has sucked the life out of it.
  28. Evans fumbles through painfully extended homophobic jokes, weak double entendres and agonizingly contorted double-takes.
  29. Macaulay Culkin still can't act, and it's no longer cute. His performance in Party Monster is so embarrassing one doesn't know where to look.
  30. Excuse me, but didn't Bette Midler already play this role?
