  1. Sandler's bizarrely clunky kiddie flick, is a sort of upside-down "Princess Bride."
  2. That someone as smart as Duchovny would get bogged down in such predictable treacle is a mystery worthy of investigation by Scully and Mulder.
  3. Screenwriter Tom Schulman, who won an Oscar for "Dead Poets Society," gives us a narrative reminiscent of a pup chasing its tail, as characters struggle to catch up with inexplicably chopping and changing motives.
  4. Isn't as relentlessly vulgar or cartoonish as "The Ladies Man" - nor is it a whole lot more realistic.
  5. Black loses control of Virginia as it lurches from political satire to unintended black comedy to mom-and-son melodrama. But the performances and the movie's sheer crazy audacity make it watchable.
  6. You may call the film blingsploitation but its fun-loving hoodlums know who's fooling whom.
  7. It's hoary and clunky even by the low standards of contemporary thrillers.

    A ho-hummer of a "Speed" knockoff that will leave most audiences cold.

  8. Black was already the world's biggest little kid, and he might be the only actor who could have made this movie such nimble fun.
  9. A soul-deadening mash-up of "Kill Bill," "Showgirls" and dozens of other better flicks that's not the least bit exciting or sexy, Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch is what happens when a studio gives carte blanche to a filmmaker who has absolutely nothing original or even coherent to say.
  10. The tin-earned dialogue and haphazard plotting are more reminiscent of Tarantino's frequent collaborator Robert Rodriguez.
  11. This may be the most politically confusing movie about that conflict since "For Whom the Bell Tolls" -- I couldn't for the life of me figure out where Escriva stood.
  12. Love Happens is a weepie about the grieving process, mainly my own.
  13. The script is so overstuffed with painfully obvious clues (the constant patina of sweat on the cocky doctor's face, for one) that we don't need the ominous rumbles on the soundtrack to tell us where we're headed.
  14. The family at the center of "Catch" is likable and authentic, but the seriousness of their plight sits uneasily with the shoddily assembled escapist goof it generates.
  15. RV
    RV stands for "Retread of 'Vacation,'" or possibly "Robin's Vehicle," but to me it's funnier than "National Lampoon's Vacation." I always found Chevy Chase's road trip more unpleasant than outrageous, but RV has laughs spilling out of its overhead bins.
  16. A cheesy and unpleasant splatterfest.
  17. It's the worst of both worlds as Disney cash cow Miley Cyrus makes the most dubious "dramatic" debut of any singer since Britney Spears.
  18. Shoddily made, boring and, most shockingly, without a single decent scare.
  19. Unfortunately, Impostor doesn't do much with its template, despite a remarkably strong cast.
  20. Even the lovemaking scenes between two of Hollywood's most attractive stars -- often shot from above, like Cinemax soft porn -- are so unerotic, they make your skin crawl.

  21. A creepy, depressing and leering "comedy" that's a virtual collection of "What were they thinking?" moments.
  22. Directors Potelle and Rankin lack the skill to integrate the sometimes drastic shifts between comedy and drama - and the serious portions ultimately get short shrift, apparently at the behest of Miramax's marketing executives.
  23. In execution, this clever idea is far less funny than the original, "Killers From Space," which was directed by W. Lee Wilder, the vastly less talented brother of the great Billy.
  24. The performances are solid, but as a screenwriter, Guttenberg can't make the situation seem like more than a theatrical construct in a contemporary setting.
  25. Nothing would help make this dud understandable.
  26. So bad it's awful.
  27. You know you're in trouble when you're suffering a comedy shutout and the pinch-hitters you send in are Kidman and Dave Matthews.
  28. A lame, glossy and disastrously misconceived film about three ditsy sisters dealing with the death of their horrible father.

  29. It's so incoherent that at first you wonder if the reels are being shown out of order.
