  1. You must lead a dull life if it would be enlivened by 76 minutes' worth of Old Joy.
  2. An excellent case for euthanizing the entire talking-animals genre.
  3. School for Scoundrels teaches one important lesson: Avoid any thing carrying the banner of The Weinstein Co., which is to the multiplex what bagged spinach is to the produce aisle.
  4. Lou Diamond Phillips is let down by an uninspired supporting cast, including Bruce Weitz as a crippled con artist and Tracy Middendorf as the requisite femme fatale, a clichéd script, and flat direction by Stephen Purvis.
  5. Halfway through, the jokes stop - the laughs never began - and give way to a tiresome thriller.
  6. The movie's prideful silliness makes it semi-watchable in the manner of Saturday afternoon cable flicks like "Delta Force."
  7. There's plenty of material here for a dark comedy, but director Martin Curland isn't up to the job. His film - like Luke - plods along, unsure of exactly what it's supposed to be.
  8. We keep waiting for one of those outlandish musical treats to bring some life to the clichéd script. Kunder throws in a few breaks, but they're tepid and brief.
  9. There are a couple of grams of interesting stories about Miami's drug traffic in Cocaine Cowboys, but the good stuff is cut with 50 kilos of cinematic baking soda.
  10. Relentlessly grim.
  11. Rarely has a documentary been so pleased with itself - with so little justification.
  12. One of the year's worst movies.
  13. You will be so put off by the bland couple (what do you expect from people named Joe and Jane?) and their dumb arguing - not to mention the grating score - that you won't really care.
  14. A deadly dull, by-the-numbers rendition of the Nativity story.
  15. Though nothing much happens, all of the actors get to do lots of teary close-ups.
  16. If your film is as downbeat and deflated as this one, you had better be leading up to a more interesting insight than, "The older I get, the more I know that I don't know anyone."
  17. The latest catastrophe from the Weinstein Co.
  18. An ugly, unfunny, headache-inducing fairy-tale spoof.
  19. Suspenselessly directed by Robby Henson, Thr3e commits the eighth deadly sin - boredom.
  20. Thirty years after "Annie Hall," the beloved actress is scraping below the bottom of the barrel with this desperately unfunny farce, in which she mugs and pratfalls in the worst performance of her entire career.
  21. It's nicely photographed but slow-moving, dull and utterly predictable.
  22. Would that somebody had fired Gurwitch before she could have finished Fired!
  23. Dull and dreary prequel.
  24. While there are some scattered laughs, the flimsy and nonsensical script - combined with the sledgehammer direction by Brian Robbins, make the similarly themed "Big Momma's House" look like Noel Coward.
  25. The movie's last words are "This is how legends are born." Make that stillborn, because when the makers of this one pitch the sequel, the only answer is going to be, "Ah HA HA HA!"
  26. They go on a biker trip from Cincinnati to the West Coast because they are tired of being bored and would prefer to bore us instead.
  27. All the film provides is this bulletin: Lefties are angry about the things Lefties are angry about, chiefly corporate profits.
  28. Rock appears to have edited I Think I Love My Wife with a roulette wheel.
  29. The characters are too cliched to be funny, and Jensen's script can't stay focused long enough to make an impression. Where is Lars von Trier when we need him?
  30. The movie takes us on a journey to an ugly, contentious period in our misty, ancient past - all the way back to four months ago, when "Apocalypto" came out.
