  1. There's potential here, but the script is entirely too, shall we say, Hollywood. There's even a dog-poop joke.
  2. Boring and desperately unfunny.
  3. How cheap-looking is the modern-day romantic tragedy Private Romeo? Take a couple of friends to see it, and the amount you spend may exceed the amount the filmmakers did.
  4. Psst! Wanna vicariously experience a consciousness-raising LSD trip and watch Sarah Michelle Gellar star in some explicit sex scenes?
  5. I’ve read ingredients labels that were scarier than The Purge: Anarchy, a plodding horror flick that mistakenly thinks it has big ideas.
  6. Remember when Robert De Niro was an interesting actor? These days his talent, like his character in The Family, is in the witness protection program, never to be seen again.
  7. Yunus would seem to be a prime candidate for a movie about his work. Unfortunately, director Holly Mosher's by-the-numbers documentary Bonsai People isn't the answer.
  8. 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?
  9. At the start of Insidious 2, a young woman opens her mouth to speak and someone else’s voice comes out of her. Demonic possession? Nope, just some inexplicable dubbing to kick off this clunker of a horror sequel.
  10. Confessions of a Shopaholic -- a "Devil Wears Prada" for Chico's customers.
  11. Step Up 3D is strictly 1D. Tired choreography and moldy hip-hop gestures accompany insipid characters.
  12. A lazy, noisy ADHD-addled collection of animated clichés guaranteed to give anyone older than 5 a headache, even if you don’t see it in optional 3-D.
  13. Another ridiculous anti-American screed by the minimalist Danish director Lars von Trier, who has never set foot in this country.
  14. Sucky vampire flick.
  15. With so many worthwhile movies out there just waiting for a release, it's a shame that this tired drama is getting a run.
  16. This time the execs are lobbying us, yet the public grows increasingly furious as our tax dollars fund corporate welfare, bailouts and dumb ideas like the $41,000 golf cart that is the Chevy Volt.
  17. 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?
  18. Actually, Bruce, what stinks is the script — which is woefully lacking the kind of one-liners and memorable bad guys that helped make working-class hero McClane so iconic he’s still around after 25 years. Even the action sequences are pretty much by the numbers this time.
  19. Cutesy? My pain was acutesy as the entire plot yawned before me.
  20. Produced with the best of intentions by a California church and directed without distinction by first-timer Brian Baugh, To Save a Life would be bland and boring even as a half-hour after-school special.
  21. THE mesmerizingly awful The Kid & I is a historic first: a comedy about the making of a vanity production that is ITSELF a vanity production.
  22. Quickly devolves into a nonprescription alternative to Ambien.
  23. A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.
  24. Avoiding the usual vein-popping diatribes, he comes across as learned, calm and folksy. But much of what Gore says in this slide show he gives to people whose minds are not yet fully formed (undergraduates, actors) is absurd, and his assertions often contradict each other.
  25. Isn't really a movie: It's a grab bag of mobster clichés lifted without finesse from "A Bronx Tale," "GoodFellas" and at least a score of lesser Mafia flicks.
  26. This crowd-funded — and overcrowded — collection of interwoven stories, directed by John Herzfeld, plays like an amateur-acting exercise in which each participant picks a name and a couple of defining props.
  27. The lackadaisical pace of CD3 is a disappointing surprise.

  28. Draggy and incoherent.
  29. The film is lousy with cartoonishly off-putting characters.
  30. It boggles the mind to think that Elite Squad won the top prize at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival in February.
