  1. Plagued by moralizing so strident and a style so artificial that the story never has a chance to speak to an audience.
  2. Director Rick Friedberg (who made the "bad golf" videos with Leslie Nielsen) has crafted a dreadfully unfunny comedy that takes Naked Gun-like sketches and rehashes them without a whit of style or energy.
  3. 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.
  4. Fans of the original will end up doing shot-by-shot comparisons. On every level, The Omen isn't just bad filmmaking, it's bad storytelling.
  5. It's all about eye candy and the quick tease. It's not over fast enough.
  6. This is sloppy filmmaking, and it's likely to wipe away whatever luster still remains to Shyamalan's reputation.
  7. John Tucker Must Die is toothless. The jokes are obvious and unfunny, the storyline goes nowhere that's interesting or unexpected, and the only chemistry happens in a science lab.
  8. LaBute has transformed the eerie, disturbing psychological thriller into an unintentional comedy. At times, The Wicker Man is hilariously bad.
  9. Tideland is, by turns, a complete bore and a creepy experience. And I don't mean "creepy" in a positive sense.
  10. Three adjectives spring to mind when describing Marie Antoinette: odd, irritating, and tedious.
  11. It's hard to imagine anyone having the patience to sit through this movie except perhaps a handful of 11-year old boys seeking vicarious wish fulfillment.
  12. This is a mechanical gore-fest that offers preposterous stunts in place of escalating tension and waxwork mannequins in place of marginally interesting characters.
  13. 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.
  14. It's a little sad that The Messengers is ultimately a good candidate for burial in a toxic waste dump because there are some good elements contained herein.
  15. Wild Hogs is more tired, worn out, and sagging than its protagonists - an arthritic comedy whose humor is below mediocre and whose drama is cringe-worthy.
  16. It's hard to say what is more responsible for the film's utter failure: Hopkins direction, the editing, or the screenplay. The result is such a muddle that one assumes each aspect deserves part of the blame.
  17. A movie so inane that it fails to rise to the level of "good trash."
  18. There are stretches when it becomes tedious and insufferably self important. There's even a late scene in which the movie turns preachy.
  19. Yes, this film is worse than "Cliffhanger," Stallone's last venture into chaos.
  20. As a satire on the media's infatuation with violence and murderers, Natural Born Killers hits the bullseye. The problem is, this is a one-note movie. It repeatedly hammers home the same point until the audience is bludgeoned into senselessness.
  21. The problem with Hostel Part II is the same flaw that afflicted Hostel: no tension.
  22. For all of its existential posturing, Being Human ends up being a rather shallow motion picture.
  23. A tedious, incoherent bore.
  24. Louder, flashier, and more hollow than anything else out there.
  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. Dull, uninspired, and redundant.
  27. It doesn't take long for the The Signal's promising beginning to fade into a haze that leaves the viewer exhausted and irritated.
  28. By any standards, Silk is a bad movie: pretentious, stillborn, devoid of emotion.
  29. It's a depressing experience to view something like Saw IV. It's not just the soullessness that's dispiriting, but the lack of invention. When a movie does little more than repeat what its predecessors accomplished with grotesque effectiveness, it's past time to tip this corpse into its grave and bury it.
  30. "Mindless" applies, and Book of Secrets is more like a tame, endlessly repetitive amusement park ride than a motion picture.
