  1. The Santa Clause isn't an unmitigated disaster, but it's also a whole lot less impressive than it could be.
  2. It's a cobbled together mess of clichés that fails to surprise at any of its turns.
  3. From that point on, the movie becomes distressingly predictable, with nary a surprise to be found.
  4. Failure to Launch fails at more than just launching. It fails at romance and comedy.
  5. Neither smart enough nor funny enough to have cross-over appeal to any other demographic.
  6. One of the year's most uninspired inspirational stories.
  7. To go with the good, there's plenty of bad, and it comes in the form of countless gags that misfire, far too much flatulence and urine, and (God help us) a buck naked Leslie Nielsen. Admittedly, that scene certainly puts the "scary" in Scary Movie 4.
  8. Wassup Rockers is amateurish, but without the redeeming qualities found in "Kids" and "Bully."
  9. It's watchable, but barely.
  10. As coming of age stories go, Wah-Wah does little to distinguish itself.
  11. The Break-Up is like Danny DeVito's "The War of the Roses," but without the wit, the acid, and the blacker-than-black humor.
  12. Too much in Nacho Libre doesn't work to enable me to recommend it to anyone except a card-carrying member of the Jack Black fan club.
  13. A mess of conflicting tones and missed opportunities. The only one to emerge unscathed is Kate Hudson, who exhibits qualities she has rarely shown since her breakthrough role in "Almost Famous."
  14. A blend of lackluster comedy and lazy plotting, the film feels a lot like bad Hitchcock.
  15. Why bother with wit, intelligence, and emotion when children will be equally entertained by pretty images, colorful action, and the obligatory poop joke?
  16. You laugh a few times but, in the end, you wonder why you bothered.
  17. From the poor set design to the mediocre acting to the paint-by-numbers screenplay, this is TV fare at best.
  18. The sloppiness of the ending doesn't only damage The Black Dahlia, it sinks the project.
  19. Confetti is an excellent study of what happens when someone botches Christopher Guest's mockumentary format.
  20. Those familiar with the novel will undoubtedly agree that reading it is a more satisfying experience than watching this disappointing film. One expects more - much more, in fact - with a cast of this caliber.
  21. What "Eternal Sunshine" did with magic and whimsy, The Science of Sleep accomplishes with confusion and pretentiousness.
  22. There's nothing in The Guardian that audiences haven't previously been exposed to ad nauseam.
  23. A grim experience, with too little wit and humor to compensate for its faults, and the upbeat ending feels like a cheat. Thornton is good, but not worth the price of a ticket.
  24. Although Shortbus doesn't work as porn (and I don't believe it's intended to), it also doesn't work as a serious drama. The storyline is juvenile and the characters remain poorly developed and incomplete.
  25. Death of a President is celluloid mediocrity. It's neither interesting nor convincing.
  26. There's some potential in this storyline, but the movie doesn't do much with it besides giving Martin Short an opportunity to put on the fat suit.
  27. The resulting finished project is a series of skits performed by famous people doing favors for a friend, and it works about as well as one might expect from such an endeavor.
  28. In the end, you have to possess a sweet spot for Black and his antics to find Tenacious D more than barely watchable.
  29. As a piece of religious instruction or an animated version of a crèche, it accomplishes its aims. As a movie, however, it's slow, plodding, and not terribly interesting.
  30. Starts out as an effective little horror movie before devolving into an incoherent mess during its final 30 minutes.
