  1. 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!"
  2. 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.
  3. All the film provides is this bulletin: Lefties are angry about the things Lefties are angry about, chiefly corporate profits.
  4. Rock appears to have edited I Think I Love My Wife with a roulette wheel.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. Have you ever seen a movie without a single believable moment? Perfect Stranger, a convoluted and altogether risible thriller with Halle Berry and Bruce Willis, manages this difficult feat.
  8. In the Land of Women is one of those films informed by intimate personal experience - the experience of seeing "Garden State."
  9. A depressing and tedious movie.
  10. A wan effort at "Annie Hall"-style comedy, has about as much Manhattan sophistication as a gas station in Chippewa Falls, Wis.
  11. Larry the Cable Guy channels both Moe and Curly in the Three Stooges-go-to-war comedy Delta Farce.
  12. A clueless Mundhra tackles the subject with a heavy hand and a contrived script. The result is a daytime soap mixed with a second-rate women-behind-bars flick.
  13. Despite solid contributions by vets such as Michael Lerner and Daniel Stern, Caleo isn't able to sell The Last Time - not the affair and especially not the ludicrous twist ending.
  14. The silliness of Moore's oeuvre is so self-evident that being able to spot it is not liberal or conservative, either; it's a basic intelligence test, like the ability to match square peg with square hole. His documentaries are political slapstick that could have been made by a third Farrelly brother or a fourth Stooge.
  15. Vanessa Redgrave spends Evening dying, and so does Evening.
  16. Watching Robin Williams as a pastor giving premarital counseling to lovebirds John Krasinski and Mandy Moore in License to Wed is like having a laugh chastity belt cinched up tight around your funny bone.

    Captivity is torture porn without the sex. Cuthbert squirms, screams, weeps and pleads for her life with great conviction. Slick, sick sleaze.
  17. Proves, if anything, that sappy feel-good movies aren't restricted to Hollywood.
  18. As much as we like Alec as an actor, it's hard to imagine that any amount of editing and reshooting under his supervision could salvage his complete ineptitude as a director.
  19. The Spanish Inquisition was better summed up in an eight-minute musical number by Mel Brooks than in the entirety of Goya's Ghosts, an across-the-board disaster from one of my favorite directors, Milos Forman.
  20. The movie isn't insulting to homosexuals but to comedy.
  21. Hot Rod started to go wrong at about the time someone in casting said, "You know what? I'll bet America's just about ready for the comedy stylings of Sissy Spacek."
  22. Remember how "Double Indemnity" featured smart criminals and a smarter investigator? The indie film If I Didn't Care, with its dumb criminals and dumb cops, is a sort of "Double Stupidity."
  23. Say hello to my leetle dagger! Shakespeare meets "Scarface" in an Aussie adaptation of "Macbeth" gone gangsta.
  24. Well, it smells, all right, but authentic isn't the word I'd use for this maudlin male weepie, a compendium of the worst clich├ęs of sports and journalism movies.
  25. In the fourth and by far the worst screen version of "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers," Nicole Kidman's character struggles to stay awake - as will the audience.
  26. Mostly unfunny, extremely silly pingpong comedy.
  27. A very belated and very silly follow-up to "Death Wish."
  28. Featuring eyeball-rolling performances by Vivica A. Fox, Patti LaBelle, Clifton Davis and the singularly named Leon, Cover would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic.
  29. You can see better stuff on TV any night of the week.
