  1. Wildly uneven romantic drama.
  2. Mind-numbing, would-be comic-book franchise, which often seems as blind as its hero -- not to mention deaf and dumb.
  3. Lethargic direction, bland visuals, credulity-straining plotting and tin-eared dialogue turn even pros like Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Morgan Freeman into sleepwalking bores.
  4. There are many new Japanese movies that deserve a stateside release. Why this hapless mess beat them out is a question that deserves an answer.
  5. But improbable situations, heavy reliance on coincidence and an improbable climax nearly tip the film into TV-movie territory.
  6. A long way from his TV portrayal of John Adams, Giamatti seems to be having an especially good time as a splenetic King John, who would not be out of place in a Monty Python movie.
  7. It seems more likely that a dumb movie will lead only to a time-wasting surge in applications from dummies. Maybe The Internship was secretly funded by Bing.
  8. This low-caliber Gun Shy has singularly ugly cinematography by Tom Richmond that at one point shows off Bullock's facial hair.

  9. Proves that you don't need a big budget to make a dynamite film.
  10. Promising new writer-director Mark Christopher is like "Dollhouse" director Todd Solondz's more cheerful little brother.
  11. The film is never gripping, but at least it moves. Director Ron Howard does his best to spark excitement with cheesy horror-movie editing — brief shots of the damnation in store if the virus is unleashed — and there are a couple of twists to keep things lively. Nothing is what it seems, unless it seems ridiculous, in which case it’s exactly what it seems.
  12. At its most entertaining when the parrot does the talking.
  13. Both Adam and the stakes are so low, it’s like watching 100 minutes of a slug trying to crawl over a twig.
  14. A deeply pleasurable, old-fashioned blood-'n'-guts adventure film.

  15. Charles Busch's spoof of beach-party movies and psychological thrillers, an off-Broadway hit 13 years ago, stubbornly refuses to entertain in this unrelentingly dull film version.
  16. Evokes such deja vu, you'd swear you'd already fallen asleep on the damned thing in the middle of the night on HBO.
  17. James' character is a charmless, boring lump and it's very hard to care if he gets the girl or not.
  18. To call Jackass: The Movie the worst movie of the year is practically a compliment. This plotless, crudely videotaped collection of moronic stunts is a movie in the same sense that those hideous, velvet depictions of Elvis are paintings.
  19. The "Jurassic Park" movie franchise does not evolve. Quite the opposite: It degenerates at great speed.
  20. Parker is watchable chiefly for Statham, who exudes effortless cool and excels in hand-to-hand combat, as well as demonstrating his skill at wielding some very unlikely weapons.
  21. There's certainly a good movie to be made about Muslim punk musicians in the US, but this isn't it.
  22. To be fair, Ferrell is almost always at least mildly funny, even when doing something as lame as skateboarding into a power line, but Wahlberg’s cowboy shtick just seems half-hearted.
  23. If you can overlook Andie MacDowell's Mitteleuropa accent as a Jewish Holocaust survivor (I know: big if), the cinematic roman a clef Mighty Fine has some quiet charms.
  24. It's hard to imagine how Shyer and script writer John Sweet could have brought this tale to the screen in a cruder, cornier or less interesting way.
  25. The once-funny Robin Williams is still stuck in his excruciating touchy-feely mode.

  26. The funniest "SNL" movie since "Wayne's World."
  27. A good edit would have allowed the film's worthy, obviously heartfelt, message to shine.
  28. Boasts a stellar ensemble cast and some priceless one-liners -- but those pearls of acerbic wit have been strung together on a cheap piece of thread which almost inevitably breaks in the third act.
  29. Twi-hards, Beliebers and Whovians have nothing on the cult of Jane Austen, whose beribboned ranks are ripe for satire. Unfortunately, this scattershot comedy only occasionally hits the mark.
  30. Concert sequences are engaging, though I was disappointed not to see any animated flourishes.
