  1. While “300" maestro Snyder puts together some very striking scenes — which may be enough for many fanboys — they never really cohere into a whole. He literally throws in the kitchen sink in a film that frantically introduces characters and concepts while never clearly establishing the rules of the DC Comics universe.
  2. The cheerfully inane comedy Connie and Carla all but suffocates beneath a high-stepping, show-stopping, ear-splitting deluge of musical theater staples, from "Cats" to "Oklahoma!," "Jesus Christ Superstar" to "Fiddler on the Roof."
  3. Pours on creepy atmosphere, but this dud is too intent on delivering its liberal "message" to actually deliver the kinds of scares it promises in the terrific trailer.
  4. The only really believable character ends up being Bilson's chaste Laura, who snags herself a slot on the reality-show competition "America's Last Virgin."
  5. Recycles gags from various, more successful gross-out and romantic comedies, but without any zest or imagination.
  6. Has laugh-out-loud moments of inspired idiocy. The problem is that this one-joke skit (done first and better by Britain's Ali G) has been given the Hamburger Helper treatment and stretched to feature length.
  7. A predictable but pleasant kids movie that veers between old-fashioned girl-and-her-horse sentiment and "Ren & Stimpy"-style poo jokes.
  8. With its array of chases and shootouts and a sinister political plot, the movie at least holds your attention and keeps things brisk-ish. But every scene still bears the tags of the place from which it was stolen.
  9. In Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, selfish oldsters scheme to rob young people of their vital essence, sacrificing them in the process. It’s basically “Social Security: The Movie.”
  10. Director Ben Hickernell soft-pedals the material into a blandly feel-good dramedy. As Abigail's spirited young trainees, Alexandra Metz and Meredith Apfelbaum give Backwards their all, but can't row their way clear of its clichés.
  11. The dialogue is ridiculous, the acting wooden - but that's not why we go, is it?
  12. Isn't quite up to the comic standard of Rob Schneider's 1999 hit "Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo."
  13. Gandolfini, who skillfully fleshes out what's written as a one-joke character, comes close to pilfering The Mexican from the stars. Under the circumstances, that's not a huge accomplishment.

  14. Startlingly immature.
  15. A messy, woefully uneven chick flick.
  16. The opening and closing scenes are scary and should please fans of the genre, especially at Halloween time.
  17. Woo has never been particularly good at human stuff, and to the extent that Paycheck is, or should be, a love story, it feels forced.
  18. Under writer-helmer Rehana Mirza, the acting and direction are workmanlike, but the plot is full of hackneyed characters and contrived events better suited to TV than the big screen.
  19. Temple and Angarano, entertaining enough, never quite sell the idea that this goodhearted couple would be so easily transformed by greed.
  20. I understood two words of Youth Without Youth: "The End."
  21. Ryan's heart is definitely in the right place and his film has good performances and flashes of talent. But, overall, it plays like the world's longest — over two hours -- after-school special.
  22. If you've seen "Gone With the Wind," you've seen what Love in the Time of Cholera isn't.
  23. One of those potentially interesting movies that takes its sweet time getting to the point - by which time many audience members will likely have bailed out or dozed off.

  24. A skin-deep examination of a shallow lifestyle that draws a conclusion so logical it's almost superfluous.
  25. Some gut-busting moments, but for the most part the thrill is gone.
  26. The horror flick The Uninvited is not unclever - but it is unoriginal.
  27. Fairly sexy and stylish. Alas, it's also quite silly and not especially scary.
  28. Earnest and predictable, it's the cinematic equivalent of a pop hit by star Selena Gomez's boyfriend, Justin Bieber.
  29. Has some entertaining moments, thanks mainly to Bullock herself, who is surprisingly glamorous as well as endearing.
  30. At one sip per cuss word, though, few viewers will still be conscious for the ending, in which the three cops finally come to the same place, each for an entirely different but equally ridiculous reason.
