  1. Code 46 is like "Solaris" without the psychological depth and strong acting. The movie is flat, boring, pointless, and nonsensical.
  2. The film is critic-proof and it will find an audience, but it's hard to imagine even the film's target demographic (teenage boys) being overly enthusiastic about the product. It's disposable entertainment of the worst kind.
  3. The Brown Bunny is one long, self-indulgent bore topped off with a hard-core porn scene featuring Gallo and co-star Chloë Sevigny.
  4. One has the sense that if the level of violence had been ratcheted up a little, Paparazzi might have been more of a guilty pleasure and less of a chore to watch.
  5. Can't decide whether it wants to be a black comedy, dumb farce, or sentimental sit-com.
  6. Stay away from Birth not because of what goes on (or doesn't) in a bathtub, but because this is not a very good movie.
  7. Beverly Hills Ninja is essentially a one-joke film.
  8. National Treasure's storyline isn't compelling or coherent enough to warrant the term "plot."
  9. Take away the film's attitude, and you're left with "Son of Van Helsing."
  10. This remake replaces suspense with boredom and witty dialogue with lame lines any self-respecting actor should be embarrassed to utter.
  11. 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.
  12. The really disgusting thing about this movie isn't the crude jokes themselves, but how grossly unfunny they all are.
  13. If there's the kernel of a good story buried somewhere deep in Cursed, it never pops. As werewolf movies go, this one is on par with "An American Werewolf in Paris," but at least that dud had plenty of gore and Julie Delpy's bare breasts to recommend it.
  14. Offensive because it offers little more than unleavened stupidity in the place of the family-friendly action and comedy it promises.
  15. As far as I'm concerned, it's official: Hollywood has lost the art of how to make horror films.
  16. A shallow, transparent satire/social commentary, Palindromes lives and dies on a gimmick.
  17. One can give Ice Cube props for attitude, but not much more.
  18. Monster-in-Law is appalling misfire of a comedy - a motion picture that takes a situation ripe for the blackest vein of satire and reduces it to a puerile and edgeless pile of goo
  19. Plastic characters, chaotic camerawork, lots of things blowing up, and an incredibly dumb screenplay. In short, it represents a great time at the movies for anyone who has recently undergone a frontal lobotomy.
  20. Breakdown is the latest in a seemingly endless traffic jam of thrillers that opens strong but finishes abominably.
  21. Dirty Deeds boasts a passably entertaining idea that is butchered in the telling.
  22. Only for die-hard Cho fans. Everyone else will be offended, bored, or some combination of the two.
  23. The movie starts cheating the audience early, and never lets up.
  24. Speed 2 can be numbered among the worst second chapters ever made.
  25. Movies like this usually have something interesting to say about the human condition, but not Nine Lives. It makes an insufferably obvious observation: we live boring lives, shit happens, and we die.
  26. Even children, who will be enthralled by all the puppies, may have a hard time not fidgeting for protracted portions of the running time.
  27. 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.
  28. Tedious and predictable, it employs obvious situations and clich├ęs instead of genuine suspense-building elements.
  29. From the start, it's obvious that this is a vehicle for his comedy, and it mostly works -- for about ten to fifteen minutes. After that, Carrey's act gradually grows less humorous and more tiresome, and the laughter in the audience seems forced.
  30. Very little of what made the written version so enjoyable has been successfully translated to the screen, and what we're left with instead is an overly-long (two hours and thirty-four minutes, to be exact), pedantic thriller.
