  1. Best watched while doing a crossword or reading the paper.

  2. If you insist on seeing Soul Men, stick around during the closing credits for the best part of the movie, an interview with Mac.
  3. Slick as a pig and reeking of phony sympathy for recession-wracked consumers, The Joneses is a black comedy about stealth marketing made by a filmmaker who's evidently much too close to the subject to bite the hand that feeds him.
  4. Solid performances can't save Melissa Painter's pretentious teen drama Steal Me, which plays like a cross between "Dangerous Skin" (without the gay sex) and "Picnic" (without the production values or credible situations).
  5. A screwball farce that pulls off a pitifully low percentage of its gags, even with a star-crammed cast.
  6. A lot more stupid action - and a lot less heart - than the character-driven original, as Stuart ends up rescuing Margalo from Falcon.
  7. This movie, cynically and patronizingly aimed at Seagal's predominantly "urban" audience, is sad, tedious proof that even violent exploitation isn't what it used to be.

  8. There are more misses than hits among the myriad plot strands that make up the sweaty Spanish sex comedy KM.0.
  9. First-time director Ed Solomon has corralled a stellar cast for his indie drama Levity -- and then put them through paces as plodding as a draft horse's.
  10. Nothing But the Truth is like listening to the fourth-best debater in middle school present a term paper called "Politics, Power and the Media."
  11. Shot through with ’60s London energy, illuminating on several fronts and featuring bits of many great Who tracks, the film is nevertheless a mess that should be taught in film schools to illustrate how not to edit a documentary.
  12. With thinly drawn characters, uneven performances and tin-eared dialogue, Stonewall plays at best like a musical without the songs.
  13. Sitcomish, stereotypical and sporadically funny romantic comedy.
  14. Mostly an unfunny, rather dull affair.
  15. It's all interspersed with strange attempts at comedy that fail on two levels: They're not funny, and they puncture what little drama there is.
  16. Finish your popcorn early if you’re going to The Green Inferno, and save the bucket to barf in.
  17. Some ideas are auto-stolen (from Coupland's last novel, "JPod"), but those quirky atmospherics aren't enough to sustain a largely plotless film.
  18. Helplessly clichéd, predictable and unaware of its own lameness, it could easily become a camp classic on the order of "Grease 2" and "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
  19. You wouldn't call The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day a taut thriller. More like a fleshy, messy, jangled frenzy of shootouts and much discussion about the mechanics of romantic entanglements that bloom between prison inmates.
  20. Skip it, and rent "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" instead.
  21. Milks the very real problem of "organ tourism" for all the melodrama and car chases it's worth.
  22. The pretentious and unrelievedly glum first feature from music-video and advertising director Nenad Cicin-Sain, The Time Being looks sharp, but it’s about as dramatically satisfying as watching paint dry.
  23. The effects are cheesy, the photography is murky, the sets look like leftovers from a Las Vegas stage spectacular -- and the flick appears to have been edited with a roulette wheel.
    • New York Post
  24. A few magic rocks and tepid battle scenes do little to inspire interest in the goings-on as Malcolm McDowell and Eric Idle spout villainy and punch lines, respectively.
  25. Abysmal performances, limp direction (Will Gould) and a heavy-handed script drive a stake through a semi-interesting idea about the persecution of gay werewolves in a remote English village.
  26. Who let this dog out?
  27. Slow-witted and occasionally unintentionally hilarious.
  28. This excruciating adaptation of the innocuous '70s cartoon show makes the film version of "Josie and the Pussycats" look sophisticated by comparison.
  29. A 2010 movie that could have been made in 1940.
  30. Dull yet contrived drama.
