  1. If I weren't already being paid to watch this movie, I'd feel entitled to compensation for having to sit through this many product plugs.
  2. If there's a fresh idea in When Harry Tries To Marry, I couldn't find it.
  3. This genre flat-lined a long time ago. Why won't it stay dead?
  4. Japan's Takashi Miike has the formula down pat, but Eisener has no idea how to give violence a touch of class.
  5. Except for Brolin as an unlikely born-again Jew, nobody fares well under Mulroney's ham-fisted direction.
  6. The American Muslim comedian Ahmed Ahmed does lots of jokes about how he isn't a terrorist. How odd: As I sat through his tepid act, I could have sworn he was bombing.
  7. There's still no good reason to suffer through a half-baked little movie that proves indies can be every bit as boringly formulaic and artistically bankrupt as their big-budget brethren.
  8. In the appalling documentary If a Tree Falls, a narrator referring to an arson attack by the Earth Liberation Front solemnly intones, "In one night, they had accomplished what years of picketing and writing had never been able to do." Well, yes -- terrorism does make short work of red tape, doesn't it?
  9. A dull, by-the-numbers psych-ward horror thriller that's sadly a lot closer in quality to "Sucker Punch" than "Shutter Island."
  10. Really it's just a trashy bid to be the "Scarface" of Mesopotamia.
  11. A pointless drama that trafficks in cliché.
  12. You'd be better off renting "Eddie and the Cruisers" (1983) than slogging through this latest, far more dire recycling of the same rock clichés.
  13. Little more than a rehash of old news.
  14. Family Tree, which seems to have been written using indie-film Mad Libs, devolves into way too many quirky subplots.
  15. The real mystery is this: Even if you find this guerrilla art project utterly fascinating, why would anyone bother to release an incomplete film about it?
  16. The latter is played by Parker Posey, who looks baffled throughout. As well she should.
  17. The good news about I Don't Know How She Does It is that it's so bad that it's another ovary-punch to the formula chick flick. Bring on more films like "Bridesmaids."
  18. Jane's Journey is an exceedingly graceful and dignified sleep aid.
  19. At its most entertaining when the parrot does the talking.
  20. Recalling the lesson about bringing a knife to a gun fight, a British documentary filmmaker brings a spoon to a hatchet job in the film Sarah Palin: You Betcha!
  21. This is essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence.
  22. This film is narratively inert (we spend a lot of time listening to the same questions being asked over and over) and, like virtually all docs in its genre, less than vigorous in its pursuit of truth.
  23. Sorry, but if your sensibility is pure trashy camp, don't expect anyone not to laugh when you try to be earnest.
  24. A dispiriting rehash of dysfunctional family clichés that seems to last longer than Thanksgiving Day dinner.
  25. This time the execs are lobbying us, yet the public grows increasingly furious as our tax dollars fund corporate welfare, bailouts and dumb ideas like the $41,000 golf cart that is the Chevy Volt.
  26. Michael Brandt's soporific thriller is making a token stop in theaters before its January DVD debut. Miss it if you can.
  27. The indie road movie Janie Jones is billed as "inspired by the true story" of its writer-director, David M. Rosenthal. Impossible. No one's life is this boring.
  28. Ineptly written and directed, the nihilistic The Son of No One flaunts an attitude best summed up by a cynical Pacino -- "A man has to live with s--t.'' Maybe so, Al, but audiences have the option of skipping this bomb.
  29. Even at a supposed celebration, the well-bred and well-off aren't really happy at all. So the title is ironic. Thanks for that profound insight.
  30. Moreover, in attempting to update the play to a buzzing CNN world, Ralph Fiennes proves that as a director, he makes a fine actor.
