  1. A painfully sincere indie drama that isn't content to evoke only the misery of 9/11 -- it has to reference TWA Flight 800 for extra grief.
  2. Those endless end credits reveal that McKittrick previously worked at Steak & Ale, Roadhouse Grill and Friday's. He may well need to return to his line of work after a debut as dismal as this one.
  3. Any way you slice it, A Tale of Two Pizzas is so ineptly written and directed that it's pretty soggy entertainment.

    I was held in suspense throughout The Fog, aching to learn the answer to its central riddle: Why would any one remake such a crummy movie?
  4. An uninspired gay coming-of-age import from Germany.
  5. Excruciatingly bad.
  6. A trite, incoherent and pretentious bomb.

    Meet American Beastly, perhaps the most bitter studio film of the year.
  7. Wal-Mart's home office in Bentonville, Ark., can rest easy: Greenwald, as usual, is hysterically preaching to the choir.

    Naomi Watts is the only explanation for the existence of the student-y digital video feature Ellie Parker.
  8. The Greeks have a word for Blackmail Boy: boring.

    Israeli soldiers are cast as the killers, while the Palestinians are the hapless bunnies. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is thus reimagined as "Bambi."
  9. Hyperactive.
  10. Painfully unfunny spoof.
  11. THE mesmerizingly awful The Kid & I is a historic first: a comedy about the making of a vanity production that is ITSELF a vanity production.

    If we send Sally Struthers money, will she be able to stop this kind of suffering from taking place in Beverly Hills?
  12. The story is so contrived and the dialogue so stilted that no amount of talent could save Exist.
  13. Almereyda's muddled Happy Here and Now should have stayed on the shelf - where it's been gathering dust for several years.

    From bad to worse - Even in verse - The Producers moves like a hearse -Mildness and blandness -Mugging like madness - Who knew that "Rent" would win this fight? - Murdering a genre's just not all right!

    You could make a very funny comedy about a guy who pretends to be retarded so he can win the Special Olympics, but The Ringer isn't it.

    Reiner, who came in to rescue this picture after the original director was fired, once gave us "When Harry Met Sally," but seeing him work now is like watching Willie Mays hobble around in a Mets uniform during that pathetic final year when he hit .211.
  14. Andy Lau and Siu Fai Mak, the men behind the successful Hong Kong police thriller trio "Infernal Affairs," should be arrested for directing Initial D.
  15. A pathetic stoner comedy.

  16. Painfully sincere. But it wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise.

    Underworld Evolution has antecedents in literature ("Dracula"), film ("The Matrix") and song ("Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue"). How does it rip off so much, yet learn so little?
  17. Schwartz throws in so many characters and implausible subplots - none worth mentioning - that Perception sinks under its own weight.
  18. Another ridiculous anti-American screed by the minimalist Danish director Lars von Trier, who has never set foot in this country.
  19. Ineptly directed by Simon West, the scare-free When a Stranger Calls is the worst of the seminal horror movies from the late '70s and early '80s that have been getting the remake treatment lately.
  20. Ohayon doesn't judge Thompson or his customers, but you don't need to be a Harvard-educated psychiatrist to realize that the bunch of them are dirty old men who treat women as commodities.
