  1. It boggles the mind to think that Elite Squad won the top prize at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival in February.
  2. Excruciatingly lame and laughless romantic comedy.
  3. Great actors make the craft look easy. In the Paris Hilton comedy The Hottie and the Nottie, acting looks very, very difficult.
  4. A 2 1/2-year-old collection of mediocre stand-up routines and dull backstage chatter, Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show demonstrates why comedy clubs require you to have a couple of drinks.
  5. A totally ridiculous and incoherent sci-fi adventure.
  6. Goes up for the dunk and misses the hoop, the backboard and the point. Instead, it manages to both strike out and get sacked. Whose idea was it to remake "Slap Shot" a la Jerry Lewis?
  7. I was kind of rough on "Apocalypto," which in retrospect seems like a minor classic compared to 10,000 BC.
  8. Flash Point comes loaded with cliches and immediately starts blasting them in every direction.
  9. A formula flick that should have tapped out in the script stage.
  10. Draggy and incoherent.
  11. Proves that what might be (but probably isn't) worth five minutes of your time while you're passing through the Times Square subway station really isn't worth a 1 1/2-hour movie.
  12. This boring, torpid movie notices its own flaws and unwisely underlines them.
  13. As phony as a re-enactment with finger pup pets.
  14. Lazy, shallow and repetitive, Phil Donahue's Body of War is one of the most incompetent documentaries to emerge from the Iraq war.
  15. An overwrought and patently offensive anti- abortion drama from the director of the accomplished "House of Sand and Fog."
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Quickly devolves into a nonprescription alternative to Ambien.
  19. 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.
  20. The film is an exposé only of a filmmaker's senseless contempt for the military.
  21. I'd call it a depressing soft-core porn flick, but that overstates its titillation factor. Mainly it's just icky.
  22. Let the French stick to love stories and leave stupid comedies to Tinseltown.
  23. At last: Uwe Boll has made his first intentionally funny film.
  24. The Love Guru is even funnier than "Wayne's World" or "Austin Powers." Not.
  25. There is, of course, a maximum of blood and gore. Sometimes the director's ideas work; often they don't.
  26. Nothing happens that hasn't been done better in other films, among them Thomas Vinterberg's excellent 1998 "The Celebration."
  27. 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.
  28. 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."
  29. Someone describes his writing as "snarky, bitter, witless." The last part pretty well sums up this movie.
  30. A total disaster.
