  1. Watching Imagine That, I was beset by a feeling of intense depression. Is this what Eddie Murphy has become?
  2. Jennifer's Body mixes, matches, and crosses three popular genres: horror, comedy, and teen angst. Unfortunately, it fails at all of them - and "fails" might be too kind a term.
  3. If there's anything to like about The Bounty Hunter, it's Christine Baranski doing a Joan Rivers impersonation.
  4. It's astounding how a movie this long could accomplish so little.
  5. Watching this movie, I wished I knew how to use dental floss, a paper clip, and a crumpled movie ticket to break the projector.
  6. The Last Airbender is an insult to anyone with a triple-digit I.Q. and a willingness to use it inside the confines of a movie theater. This is bad filmmaking and bad storytelling. It also sounds what should be the death knell to M. Night Shyamalan's career.
  7. The "special effects" employed to have the animals' mouths form words might have been state-of-the-art 20 years ago, but they're outdated today, and the gorilla looks like a guy in the monkey suit that was abandoned after the 1976 version of "King Kong." I guess CGI was too sophisticated for the technical crew.
  8. Perhaps the only way to approach Abduction that will not result in a 105-minute boredom-induced coma is to think of it as a comedy, preferably with a drinking game attached. There are laughs to be had, although none of them are intentional.
  9. For acting to be this bad in movie not directed by Michael Bay or George Lucas, it has to be intentional.
  10. You may find sperm jokes hilarious, but it's doubtful you'll find them hilarious in The Babymakers, which has serious composition problems.
  11. Sometimes, even a little gratuitous nudity can't save a movie. This is one of those occasions. Cosmopolis easily trumps "To Rome with Love" as the biggest disappointment of 2012 from an established director.
  12. They could have called this Paranormal Inactivity.
  13. This feels a lot like some of the recent, unwatchable Adam Sandler offerings: boorish, unfunny comedy colliding with saccharine, quasi-dramatic filler.
  14. The sad truth about After Earth is that not only is it difficult to find things it does well, but there are numerous examples of outright incompetence dotting the landscape.
  15. This is quite possibly the most moronic motion picture I have seen thus far in 2013 and that's saying a lot.
  16. This is as excruciating a movie as is likely to be experienced by anyone, anywhere. It isn't merely that the story is insulting, the characters are bland, the action is dull, and the CGI is everywhere - it's that all this goes on for nearly three hours. That's three hours of your life you'll never get back.
  17. Even the rare individual who died laughing while watching the trailer will discover that only half of that phrase - the "dying" part - applies to the experience of enduring the film.
  18. This movie only takes a few minutes to crash and burn, but more than an hour and a half to realize it.
  19. The only thing as bad as bad comedy is bad action. Bad Boys II has plenty of both.
  20. This film is like a shiny, red apple that's rotten to the core -- despite slick direction and a glossy sheen, it reeks of decay. Showgirls isn't a good drama, a good thriller, or even good pornography.
  21. Every once in a while, a movie comes along that is so boring and pointless, that those faithful movie-goers who never walk out on a film have to find some alternative to watching the mind- numbing stupidity unfolding on the screen.
  22. There are quite a few unintentionally funny moments, although the overall experience was too intensely painful for me to be able to advocate it as being "so bad, it's good."
  23. So bad that it will annoy and/or bore those who have minimal standards and a high tolerance for sewage.
  24. This is a vile and reprehensible motion picture.
  25. Straight viewing could result in brain damage.
  26. This film has no story, no characters, and no coherence.
  27. This is one of those movies where you stay rooted in your seat just to see how bad it can really get.
  28. Even Cowgirls is as close to an unwatchable film as there is available at this time in the theaters.
  29. Fair Game is howlingly bad - so awful, in fact, that it can actually be enjoyed on a certain level.
  30. Mixed Nuts makes a point of stating that there's magic at Christmas. After seeing this movie, I'm a believer. After all, it's virtually impossible to come up with an alternate explanation of how something this awful could make it to theaters across the nation.
