  1. Who would have imagined that a movie about sex could be so boring? That's the bottom line when it comes to Fifty Shades of Grey.
  2. Boring and uninspired, this movie gives ghost stories a bad name.
  3. With the flat characters and lifeless performances, it's a wonder that anyone in the audience can stay awake all the way through this dull and dreary production.
  4. The Other Woman ignores dozens of potentially edgy possibilities to tell the most banal story imaginable - and to do it badly.
  5. A huge disappointment -- the kind of motion picture that makes you actively angry at the filmmaker for subjecting you to it and stealing two hours of your life.
  6. There's no fun to be had here and if an action movie doesn't make the grade as escapist entertainment, what's the point?
  7. For all of its existential posturing, Being Human ends up being a rather shallow motion picture.
  8. LaBeouf, who appeared to hit a low in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," has sunk to greater levels of incompetence here.
  9. Sluggish. Torpid. Boring. Those three words (and more) can describe The Yellow Handkerchief, a stultifying road trip movie whose inept screenplay is only partially counterbalanced by a trio of nice performances.
  10. Beverly Hills Ninja is essentially a one-joke film.
  11. Those who don't understand what it means for an actor to "sleepwalk" through a performance need only watch Men in Black III; there's no shortage of examples.
  12. The storyline is so infantile that it will appeal to young kids.
  13. Isn't worth the time, money, or effort. For Stephen King aficionados, it's just the latest cinematic nightmare.
  14. The breath of fresh air, to the extent that one can be identified in the staleness of this recycled refuse, is John Cleese.
  15. The only reason any male could have for seeing The Vow is the hope of getting laid afterwards. The only reason any female could have for seeing The Vow is if she views the plots of Harlequin romance novels as the height of modern storytelling.
  16. As far as I'm concerned, it's official: Hollywood has lost the art of how to make horror films.
  17. The lackluster acting and horrendous dialogue don't help.
  18. Only for die-hard Cho fans. Everyone else will be offended, bored, or some combination of the two.
  19. The Watch is a studio turd marinated in eau de skunk that stinks worse than week-old fish.
  20. This is the kind of tearjerker that will cause audience members to cry, but only because they paid hard-earned money to see it.
  21. There is no truth to the rumor that free frontal lobotomies will be performed at the entrance to all theaters showing Eagle Eye.
  22. What's missing from Blended? Two key ingredients: it doesn't touch the heart and it doesn't tickle the funny bone (at least not often enough).
  23. Cloying and at times annoying, Life as We Know It is egregiously manipulative, whoring itself out for a few unearned tears.
  24. There are stretches when it becomes tedious and insufferably self important. There's even a late scene in which the movie turns preachy.
  25. Two agonizing hours of lifeless, mind-numbing hogwash.
  26. Yes, this film is worse than "Cliffhanger," Stallone's last venture into chaos.
  27. Tedious and predictable, it employs obvious situations and clich├ęs instead of genuine suspense-building elements.
  28. A preposterous thriller where the only thing more disappointing than the ending is the 93 minutes it takes to get there.
  29. Unfortunately, although there are a few nasty thorns here and there, The First Wives Club is a largely uninspired (and unfunny) comedy that collapses completely in the final fifteen minutes.
  30. "Mindless" applies, and Book of Secrets is more like a tame, endlessly repetitive amusement park ride than a motion picture.
