  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. A pathetic stoner comedy.
  6. Semicoherent.
  7. Painfully sincere. But it wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise.
  8. 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?
  9. Schwartz throws in so many characters and implausible subplots - none worth mentioning - that Perception sinks under its own weight.
  10. Another ridiculous anti-American screed by the minimalist Danish director Lars von Trier, who has never set foot in this country.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Kirschner's excruciatingly earnest coming-of-age comedy, is about as fresh as year-old matzoh and plays like the unholy spawn of "Brighton Beach Memoirs" and "Fiddler on the Roof."
  14. Syd is a jerk whose anger does not make him interesting. The only reason to keep watching is because you hope someone will drop a piano on his head.
  15. With Roth at the helm of a script attributed to Price, there is minimal suspense, audience involvement or coherent social commentary.
  16. William H. Macy lends a little class as a snail, but Smith nails it in the closing-credit outtakes: "Don't expect Robin Williams-caliber work."
  17. Why was this pointless movie made? Because quality actors like Blanchett and Weaving like to play drug addicts. They can't stop themselves. They need help.
  18. Politics aside, Trudell plays like an infomercial for its subject rather than a serious examination of the man and his beliefs.
  19. Not even Sandra Oh, as Phoebe's boss, and Elodie Bouchez ("The Dreamlife of Angels"), as Ashade's sister-in-law, can keep Sorry, Haters from becoming a sorry mess.
  20. These man-eaters are deadly, mainly in their ability to bore you to death.
  21. Who let this dog out?
  22. Watchable in a train-wreck kind of way, but you'll probably want to take a shower afterwards.
  23. Melodramatic and heavy-handed.
  24. Most of the interviews are as brief as they are obvious, and it doesn't help that none of those interviewees, including clergymen who served as technical advisers, are identified.
  25. A cheesy and unpleasant splatterfest.
  26. The film is amateurishly directed and sluggishly paced with an anorexic plot. Even the photography, sound and costumes are substandard.
  27. Scary Movie 4 concludes by satirizing Cruise's couch-jumping orgy on "Oprah." Funny, but nowhere near as hilarious as the real thing.
  28. Now that even Woody Allen has stopped making "Woody Allen movies," you would think that wannabes would move on, too.
  29. A great-looking but stupefyingly incoherent supernatural thriller adapted from a popular video game that ransacks the entire catalog of horror film tropes for more than two mind-numbing hours.
  30. If the film is meant to make us feel good about African justice, it does anything but.
