  1. It's not a bad premise for a movie, but writer-director Omar Naim, a 26-year-old Lebanese native making his feature debut, proves equally inept at handling plotting, actors and pacing.
  2. Incoherent, laugh-free comedy.
  3. An embarrassing misfire...feels like a long, slow TV pilot about L.A. twentysomethings, only it lacks the polish and wit of your average sitcom.
  4. There's 80 minutes of mawkish, overacted melodrama - laced with gratuitous violence and profanity - before we get to anything more than the briefest snippet of a dance number.

  5. The best thing about Some Body -- an amateurish, quasi-improvised acting exercise shot on ugly digital video -- is that it's all over in 80 minutes.
  6. A crass, mechanical attempt at a thriller that should have gone straight to video.
  7. Comes off as nothing more than a TV soap opera, with overwrought acting, simplistic dialogue and a generic plot.

  8. The talented cast doesn't stand much of a chance in this rambling, pointless narrative.

  9. An example of Hollywood schlock from the team of Joel Schumacher (director) and Jerry Bruckheimer (producer) that lacks the faintest trace of imagination or genuine feeling.
  10. The whole movie is so ineptly written and directed that its 90 minutes seem to take twice as long.
  11. Poor Keaton, a capable actor who was absent from the screen for several years, is hamstrung by the material even more than in last year's dismal "First Daughter."
  12. Deadly dull.
  13. A vulgar, grating alleged "family" comedy.
  14. A schlocky thriller choking under the weight of its own psychobabble.
  15. The MPAA's rating explanation for this PG-13-rated snoozer misleadingly claims it contains "intense sequences of terror/violence"; it would be more accurate to state that Boogeyman contains "virtually every horror-movie cliché of the past 30 years."
  16. If boy bands weren't already passé, Harry and Max would finish the job.
  17. Becomes more and more confused, unpleasant and preposterous.
  18. Unlike Cursed, which resorts to blatant but unconvincing gore and violence, "The Wolf Man" (1941) gets its point across through suggestion, makeup and spooky sets.
  19. Plays like an unwieldy mishmash of "Big Momma's House," "An Unmarried Woman" and "The Burning Bed," with lots of gospel music thrown in.
  20. If the once red-hot Vin Diesel's overhyped career wasn't finished off by last summer's mega flop "The Chronicles of Riddick," the alleged family comedy The Pacifier ought to do the trick.
  21. This movie wasn't just made for 11-year-old girls; it seems to have been made by 11-year-old girls.
  22. Dom DeLuise, as a fruitcake director, and John Waters fave Mink Stole, as Robin's Jewish mother, spice things up, but not enough to make Girl Play worthwhile.
  23. A flaccidly pretentious and snooze-inducing trilogy of allegedly racy tales.
  24. So bland that it fails to make an impression.
  25. A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.
  26. Huppert is wonderful, as usual, and she's to be congratulated for taking this daring role. But, alas, even she can't save Ma Mere.
  27. An Iranian comedian named Omad Djalili plays Picasso, that sexually combustible Spanish bull, with all the earth-shaking allure of, say, Andy Richter.
  28. If it weren't for "Sideways," Second Best probably wouldn't have been released at all, but the earlier film made you root for a hapless schmo. This one doesn't, mainly because its protagonist is so obnoxious.
  29. A flat, would-be thriller pausing briefly on its journey to video stores.
  30. A bland, dull and only occasionally funny waste of time that will very soon be gathering dust in the remainder bins.
