  1. Directed without wit or energy.
  2. Eric Schaeffer's rip-off -- er, homage -- to "Magnolia," is a marginally better movie than his previous self-absorbed atrocities like "My Life's in Turnaround" and "Wirey Spindell."
  3. Ranks high on the squirm meter. But, unlike in most of her earlier work, there's no emotional payoff.
  4. Tedious and obnoxiously manipulative.
  5. A shipwreck. They say a dead fish stinks from the head first - but the animated shipwreck Shark Tale arrives reeking all over.
  6. Sappy and simplistic.
  7. Overlong, blandly soporific.
  8. A real head-scratcher that somehow won the grand jury prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
  9. The latest, and let's hope the last, in the raft of uninspired, quickie Bush-bashing documentaries churned out by producer Robert Greenwald
  10. The low point of the new Shall We Dance comes when Miss Paulina finally confesses why she's so sad.
  11. So over the top that it often plays like a parody.
  12. Never rises above the level of a second-rate TV sit-com.
  13. Saw
    Promoted as "the year's scariest movie," it's anything but.
  14. This masturbatory exercise is the least revealing "documentary" since Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedian."
  15. A loud, coarse and witless family comedy.
  16. The game cast tries desperately to be funny, but Day hasn't provided them with the material.
  17. Sucky vampire flick.
  18. Crashing chandelier, crashing bore.
  19. Lumpy, preachy and soporific.
  20. No "Schindler's List," to put it mildly.
  21. 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.
  22. Incoherent, laugh-free comedy.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
    • New York Post
  25. 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.
  26. A crass, mechanical attempt at a thriller that should have gone straight to video.
  27. Comes off as nothing more than a TV soap opera, with overwrought acting, simplistic dialogue and a generic plot.
    • New York Post
  28. The talented cast doesn't stand much of a chance in this rambling, pointless narrative.
    • New York Post
  29. 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.
  30. The whole movie is so ineptly written and directed that its 90 minutes seem to take twice as long.
