  1. Even children, who will be enthralled by all the puppies, may have a hard time not fidgeting for protracted portions of the running time.
  2. Sadly, as apt as comparisons to "Underworld" might seem, I, Frankenstein can't even clear that very low bar.
  3. "Magic Mike" was self-contained, made with no expectation of a second chapter - and they prove unable to surmount it. Too many elements that made the first film an enjoyable experience are missing.
  4. Offensive because it offers little more than unleavened stupidity in the place of the family-friendly action and comedy it promises.
  5. At its best, Dumb and Dumber is like an Ernest movie with a scatological bent.
  6. Things might have been okay if this film had gone someplace, anyplace, but it stalls early, then coasts through an hour of minimally-amusing material before screeching to an amazingly improbable stop.
  7. Horror fans will be disgusted by the lack of gore. Romance fans will be disgusted by the presence of gore. One is tempted to applaud the filmmakers for trying something this daring, but the result isn't good enough to warrant any acclaim, however lukewarm it might be.
  8. An inferior product. It is not well written, well acted, or well directed.
  9. I found the most extreme material to be so tasteless that it voided all comedy.
  10. A colossal disappointment. Not because it's superficial and shallow –- those characteristics pretty much go with the territory –- but because it's boring.
  11. Akin to watching a bad sit-com that never ends.
  12. Perhaps the strangest thing about 2012 is that the bad parts of the film are among the most enjoyable, because they're so over-the-top ridiculous that it's impossible not to break out laughing.
  13. For those looking for something positive, this is the only movie I can recall that features music from both ABBA ("Does Your Mother Know") and Handel ("Zadok the Priest"). Let's hear it for musical diversity!
  14. National Treasure's storyline isn't compelling or coherent enough to warrant the term "plot."
  15. This is one of those nearly unwatchable movies that becomes an endurance contest for any thinking adult.
  16. A turd of T-Rex proportions, Land of the Lost makes one remember last summer's "Speed Racer" fondly.
  17. It's the most disappointing thing to come from the brothers in years.
  18. Season of the Witch teeters on the edge of slipping into the "so bad it's good" camp, but ultimately ends up being merely bad.
  19. It doesn't take long for the The Signal's promising beginning to fade into a haze that leaves the viewer exhausted and irritated.
  20. Humor is subjective, but this movie made me feel as if I had been subjected to something unpleasant.
  21. Godsend is godawful.
  22. One can give Ice Cube props for attitude, but not much more.
  23. Unappealing for children and adults alike, The King and I will likely bring families together in their mutual boredom.
  24. The Brown Bunny is one long, self-indulgent bore topped off with a hard-core porn scene featuring Gallo and co-star Chloë Sevigny.
  25. It stands alongside this year's other werewolf disaster, "Blood and Chocolate," in illustrating why the moon should set on the werewolf movie.
  26. No amount of youthful charisma can alter the fact that, in the light of "Dangerous Liaisons", Cruel Intentions is a feeble and dissatisfying shadow.
  27. Did You Hear about the Morgans? Yes and, to be perfectly frank, I wish I had been spared the experience.
  28. By trying to satisfy every kind of viewer, it's possible that Sphere may end up pleasing no one.
  29. This is film noir for the MTV generation: fast-paced, slick, flashy, gleefully mindless, and hollow to the core.
  30. Three adjectives spring to mind when describing Marie Antoinette: odd, irritating, and tedious.
