  1. This is easily the worst filmed version of anything penned by the prolific author.
  2. Mediocre and recommended only to those who can claim a familiarity with the play.
  3. The Producers is a movie based on a play based on a movie about a play. And that's probably the funniest thing about it.
  4. Despite a slow start, the movie eventually slips into a congenial flow. Unfortunately, Guarding Tess ends up derailing because of a ill-conceived ending that has something to do with a silly kidnapping subplot.
  5. Much of the film's comedy feels muted; Fun with Dick and Jane isn't a lot of fun.
  6. What happens when movie producers cross "Three's Company" with "Masterpiece Theater?" The result would be similar to what Touchstone Pictures has provided with Casanova, a farcical romantic comedy period piece.
  7. An unfocused mess, with poor chemistry all around and an ending that's as firm and satisfying as an overcooked noodle.
  8. The over-the-top acting is forgivable, but the plot's incoherence is not.
  9. A thrill-less thriller that uses gore to obfuscate its inability to generate tension, this motion picture has the profile one might expect from a direct-to-video release.
  10. The dialogue is routine, frequently punctuated by cliches, and the character-building scenes do little more than waste time.
  11. Once the setup is over, however, Indecent Proposal starts to fall apart, with the implausibilities and contrivances getting worse with every passing minute.
  12. The final result is an unnecessarily-long thriller that contains far more talking than action. Pakula's direction is lackluster, showing little of the style that permeated his two most impressive pictures, "All the President's Men" and "Presumed Innocent".
  13. The quality of the writing is more than a notch below that of our show. Most of the jokes aren't as witty, and the laughs come less frequently. Maybe it's because so many of the things they do in the movie are lifted directly from the show, but a lot of stuff seems stale.
  14. Strange that a movie about comedy is so lacking in this quality.
  15. Designed with Underworld fans in mind. Others need not apply.
  16. This isn't as much a movie as it is a recipe for a cinematic casserole in which the ingredients are clichés and rip-offs.
  17. The movie ends with a bizarre and unsatisfying denouement. The epilogue, which is designed either to set up a sequel or lampoon "Halloween 2," plays like a sour last note. I suppose someone thought it was clever, but it doesn't work.
  18. The Santa Clause isn't an unmitigated disaster, but it's also a whole lot less impressive than it could be.
  19. It's a cobbled together mess of clichés that fails to surprise at any of its turns.
  20. From that point on, the movie becomes distressingly predictable, with nary a surprise to be found.
  21. Failure to Launch fails at more than just launching. It fails at romance and comedy.
  22. Neither smart enough nor funny enough to have cross-over appeal to any other demographic.
  23. One of the year's most uninspired inspirational stories.
  24. 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.
  25. Wassup Rockers is amateurish, but without the redeeming qualities found in "Kids" and "Bully."
  26. It's watchable, but barely.
  27. As coming of age stories go, Wah-Wah does little to distinguish itself.
  28. 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.
  29. 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.
  30. 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."
