  1. The story lacks focus. The senses blur as wives and ex-wives come and go, and Harry regularly falls off the wagon, only to reform the next day.
  2. There is no tragedy without character, yet the way The King drapes heavy situations around its feebly imagined personalities suggests a tire thrown around the neck of a poodle.
  3. Avoiding the usual vein-popping diatribes, he comes across as learned, calm and folksy. But much of what Gore says in this slide show he gives to people whose minds are not yet fully formed (undergraduates, actors) is absurd, and his assertions often contradict each other.
  4. As a narrative, Shem, directed by Caroline Roboh, is a pointless hodgepodge, with a finale that will leave viewers scratching their heads.
  5. Tries to be "The Karate Kid" of gymnastics. It looks more like "The Karate Kid" as imagined by Details magazine.
  6. Mainstream moviegoers will be put off by the subtitles, and art-house fans will be insulted by the story's shallowness.
  7. Sex can be fun and exciting and wonderful. It also can be deadly boring, as in Psychopathia Sexu alis.
  8. Slow-witted and occasionally unintentionally hilarious.
  9. In the future, more and more filmmakers will do exactly what The Great New Wonderful has done: conceal their lack of ideas by bringing up 9/11.
  10. Sexual and toilet humor plumb new depths in Keenen Ivory Wayans' Little Man, which will stink up theaters like several gross of dirty diapers.
  11. Comes about five films after writer-director-star Ed Burns should have found another career.
  12. Despite this seemingly surefire premise and cast of veteran comedians - there's even a cameo by Liza Minnelli as a masturbation coach - The OH in Ohio just lies there, without a single laugh.
  13. A charmless, unscary, fatuous and largely incoherent fairy tale.
  14. The autobiographical script meanders and the acting never solidifies. Besides, the leads look too old to be in high school - maybe even college.
  15. I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a prison picture as utterly boring as Jailbait.
  16. Pulse bears more than a slight resemblance to a 1994 American horror called "Ghost in the Machine." They didn't screen that stinker in advance for critics, either.
  17. A British indie as tepid as yesterday morning's tea.
  18. Tucker's message is sometimes on target, even if his film isn't.
  19. A repugnant little indie black comedy, poorly acted in hideous-looking digital video, guaranteed to send audiences fleeing for the nearest shower.
  20. There's potential here, but the script is entirely too, shall we say, Hollywood. There's even a dog-poop joke.
  21. This ludicrous Quentin Tarantino-chosen low-budget movie features choppy editing and an amateurish script, and it switches strangely back and forth between dubbing and subtitles.
  22. A movie bursting with nothingness.
  23. A strained, ultra-predictable and headache-inducing mockumentary.
  24. The movie's one-star rating is solely for Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who provides eye candy as Morris' film-student granddaughter, Lisa.
  25. The sort of lowbrow sports comedy best enjoyed on a 50-inch screen with a six-pack, a bucket of wings and a fast-forward button.
  26. You must lead a dull life if it would be enlivened by 76 minutes' worth of Old Joy.
  27. An excellent case for euthanizing the entire talking-animals genre.
  28. School for Scoundrels teaches one important lesson: Avoid any thing carrying the banner of The Weinstein Co., which is to the multiplex what bagged spinach is to the produce aisle.
  29. Lou Diamond Phillips is let down by an uninspired supporting cast, including Bruce Weitz as a crippled con artist and Tracy Middendorf as the requisite femme fatale, a clich├ęd script, and flat direction by Stephen Purvis.
  30. Halfway through, the jokes stop - the laughs never began - and give way to a tiresome thriller.
