  1. None of this is remotely funny or interesting.
  2. Brainless and pointless.
  3. The low point of the new Shall We Dance comes when Miss Paulina finally confesses why she's so sad.
  4. An amateurish, pointless exercise in filmmaking.
  5. The dullness of this writing is more than matched by the dull look achieved by director Allen Coulter, who appears to have shot the film through a piece of yard-sale Tupperware.
  6. The transformation of the girls from winsome wisecrackers into whiny bling-obsessed chuckleheads is complete.
  7. At least there is a happy ending — DeChristopher, for wasting the government’s resources, properly served 21 months in federal prison. Now, he has moved on to Harvard Divinity School, where his sanctimony will serve him well.
  8. A lame teen comedy.

  9. 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.
  10. Slow-moving, yawn-inducing remake.

  11. Parental Guidance kicks off with a mean-spirited joke about an overweight woman and heads downhill from there.
  12. Like its subject, a lawsuit that is expected to go on for another 10 years, Crude has no ending. This is the perfect ending for this Goliath versus Goliath documentary about powerful personal-injury lawyers taking on a powerful corporation.
  13. This is an exhausting, eyeball-gougingly ugly 90-minute assault of non-stop action, with an all-star voice cast shouting witless lines and a wide variety of objects lobbed at the audience in the crudest 3-D fashion.
  14. Wal-Mart's home office in Bentonville, Ark., can rest easy: Greenwald, as usual, is hysterically preaching to the choir.
  15. Politics aside, Trudell plays like an infomercial for its subject rather than a serious examination of the man and his beliefs.
  16. The film is only 91 minutes long, but it seemed to stretch out for days.
  17. It’s a scrappy, unpretentious movie, with nicely calibrated pacing, but there’s no logic, little motivation and above all, no personalities.
  18. A formula flick that should have tapped out in the script stage.
  19. The film is an exposé only of a filmmaker's senseless contempt for the military.
  20. Despite much effort, neither Johnson nor director George Tillman Jr. ("Notorious") can make this preposterous tale, live up to its title.
  21. Though Freddy is basically the same guy as in the 1984 original, his back story is different. For a few minutes the movie threatens to become interesting -- then retreats.
  22. The audience, if any, for Chaos Theory is going to be hit with a little puff of celluloid flatulence. The movie won't linger in the air, but that doesn't make it any less embarrassing.
  23. There's certainly a good movie to be made about Muslim punk musicians in the US, but this isn't it.
  24. For all of its homicidal aliens and toothy beasts, I Am Number Four did contain one element that genuinely unsettled me: the line "produced by Michael Bay." Nooooooo!
  25. What's Vincent to do? Will he come out of the closet? Will he lead the swim team to victory at the big match? Will he find happiness with Noemie? Does anybody care?
  26. One big cliche.
  27. If the once red-hot Vin Diesel's overhyped career wasn't finished off by last summer's mega flop "The Chronicles of Riddick," the alleged family comedy The Pacifier ought to do the trick.
  28. Elaborate vanity production.
  29. I'll grant that the film has many layers. All of them are terrible.
  30. Eckhart’s another matter. He’s adequate, but there is something about his raspy voice and WASPy body language that’s more in tune with being the bad guy at the board meeting than the hero racing through the train station.
