  1. As phony as a re-enactment with finger pup pets.
  2. Lazy, shallow and repetitive, Phil Donahue's Body of War is one of the most incompetent documentaries to emerge from the Iraq war.
  3. An overwrought and patently offensive anti- abortion drama from the director of the accomplished "House of Sand and Fog."
  4. One of my critical brethren opined that this sort of dumbing-down and low comedy may be the only way to sell the public a movie about the Iraq war. If that's true, God help us.
  5. The audience, if any, for Chaos Theory is going to be hit with a little puff of celluloid flatulence. The movie won't linger in the air, but that doesn't make it any less embarrassing.
  6. Quickly devolves into a nonprescription alternative to Ambien.
  7. Occasionally there is a striking image or a moment of wounded sweetness, but mainly the film provides ample proof that it's possible to be bizarre and boring at the same time.
  8. The film is an exposé only of a filmmaker's senseless contempt for the military.
  9. I'd call it a depressing soft-core porn flick, but that overstates its titillation factor. Mainly it's just icky.
  10. Let the French stick to love stories and leave stupid comedies to Tinseltown.
  11. At last: Uwe Boll has made his first intentionally funny film.
  12. The Love Guru is even funnier than "Wayne's World" or "Austin Powers." Not.
  13. There is, of course, a maximum of blood and gore. Sometimes the director's ideas work; often they don't.
  14. Nothing happens that hasn't been done better in other films, among them Thomas Vinterberg's excellent 1998 "The Celebration."
  15. The misleading documentary Trumbo paints a golden nimbus of holiness around the onetime highest-paid screenwriter in Hollywood, Dalton Trumbo, an on-the-record hater of democracy, defender of authoritarian rule and avowed Communist.
  16. If Young ever converses with the gentlemen from al Qaeda, I expect his comments to be along the lines of "Please don't cut my head off."
  17. Someone describes his writing as "snarky, bitter, witless." The last part pretty well sums up this movie.
  18. A total disaster.
  19. A slow-moving, ridiculous police thriller that would have been shipped straight to the remainder bin at Blockbuster if it starred anyone else.
  20. Sounds like a great idea for a gay porno, but the soapy Save Me actually takes itself seriously.
  21. Fanning gives a sensitive and fairly impressive performance. But like her over-the-top movie family, Hounddog is still trailer trash of the worst kind.
  22. Cheap, ignorant, tone-deaf and condescending, but what's strangest about it is that it actually thinks it's pro-soldier even as it portrays vets home on leave as foolish (Rachel McAdams), desperate (Tim Robbins) and dishonorable (Michael Pena) while playing all three situations for laughs.
  23. Watching the film, I did manage to retain my empathy for the narrator, though: I was as desperate as he was to escape the situation I was in.
  24. The entire script, which boils down to a hopelessly embarrassing lesson about "this beautiful place that can make people live again," seems to have been written within arm's reach of a bong.
  25. Mary is a mess. An interesting one, yet still a mess.
  26. A documentary that uses against Atwater images of lynch mobs, decades-old racist comments of his onetime boss Strom Thurmond, and a clip of Bryant Gumbel calling him "the architect of the evil campaign."
  27. Mostly The Matador romanticizes a brutal tradition that has no place in the 21st century.
  28. Rickman has fun playing a lecherous old bastard of a professor in Nobel Son, a pulpy would-be comic thriller, but the movie doesn't deserve him.
  29. One of those Deep Dark Secret movies, the dull indie Lake City combines a wholly uninteresting family mystery with a wholly unconvincing crime drama.
  30. A few magic rocks and tepid battle scenes do little to inspire interest in the goings-on as Malcolm McDowell and Eric Idle spout villainy and punch lines, respectively.
