  1. In the mood for some dead-child entertain ment tonight? Reservation Road has what you're looking for. It's "In the Bedroom" crossed with, um, "Fever Pitch."
  2. There isn't enough revealing material in the tedious documentary Jimmy Carter Man From Plains to sustain an 800-word magazine profile, let alone a two-hour film.
  3. The only conceivable reason for Warner Bros. to (barely) release this mush is as a favor to Clint Eastwood, whose daughter Alison directed.
  4. P2
    This is one of those thrillers where the person on-screen is often the only person in the theater who can't guess what'll happen next. Lots of laughable moments provide camp value, though, and Bentley ("American Beauty") makes for a charismatic creep.
  5. How can it be that a movie as beautiful to look at as Saawariya is so . . . boring?
  6. The movie falls into all the usual rhetorical traps.
  7. There are many new Japanese movies that deserve a stateside release. Why this hapless mess beat them out is a question that deserves an answer.
  8. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. None of the talking heads is as interesting as Yu thinks they are; and it's difficult to build sympathy for any of them.
  9. Most of the comedy comes from dull situations like a fat guy trying to put on a fat suit for no reason.
  10. I've had root canals that were more enjoyable than Margot at the Wedding, Noah Baumbach's hugely pretentious, ugly and annoying follow-up to "The Squid and the Whale."
  11. A protracted piece of schmaltz, P.S. I Love You looks like a hand-me-down from Sandra Bullock and Drew Barrymore.
  12. What they say is superficial. They never really explain why they risk their lives. In the end, Steep plays like a TV infomercial - and who wants to hand over $11 to watch one?
  13. Holmes, with Alice Cooper hair and crazy Jim Carrey eyes, looks terrible and acts worse, unless this movie is unintentionally a lobotomy documentary. Whatever could have happened to her in the last couple of years to zap the talent out of her like this?
  14. The movie chides us for being a sick voyeuristic society, hungry for the sight of violence. The purity of this moral stance is somewhat clouded by the movie's habit of staging sick violent acts.
  15. It boggles the mind to think that Elite Squad won the top prize at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival in February.
  16. Excruciatingly lame and laughless romantic comedy.
  17. Great actors make the craft look easy. In the Paris Hilton comedy The Hottie and the Nottie, acting looks very, very difficult.
  18. A 2 1/2-year-old collection of mediocre stand-up routines and dull backstage chatter, Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show demonstrates why comedy clubs require you to have a couple of drinks.
  19. A totally ridiculous and incoherent sci-fi adventure.
  20. Goes up for the dunk and misses the hoop, the backboard and the point. Instead, it manages to both strike out and get sacked. Whose idea was it to remake "Slap Shot" a la Jerry Lewis?
  21. I was kind of rough on "Apocalypto," which in retrospect seems like a minor classic compared to 10,000 BC.
  22. Flash Point comes loaded with cliches and immediately starts blasting them in every direction.
  23. A formula flick that should have tapped out in the script stage.
  24. Draggy and incoherent.
  25. Proves that what might be (but probably isn't) worth five minutes of your time while you're passing through the Times Square subway station really isn't worth a 1 1/2-hour movie.
  26. This boring, torpid movie notices its own flaws and unwisely underlines them.
  27. As phony as a re-enactment with finger pup pets.
  28. Lazy, shallow and repetitive, Phil Donahue's Body of War is one of the most incompetent documentaries to emerge from the Iraq war.
  29. An overwrought and patently offensive anti- abortion drama from the director of the accomplished "House of Sand and Fog."
  30. One of my critical brethren opined that this sort of dumbing-down and low comedy may be the only way to sell the public a movie about the Iraq war. If that's true, God help us.
