  1. This is one of those unusual films that is capable of enthralling those under twelve while not sending older members of the audience rushing for the exit.
  2. The problem is that the writing is too weak for me to come close to recommending it.
  3. The pacing is uneven, the frenetic action is rarely suspenseful, the dialogue is neither witty nor intelligent, and the anticlimactic endgame drags out to an improbable conclusion.
  4. An exercise in mediocrity. It's curious how little of the TV series' charm and appeal can be found in this uneven, plodding excuse for a reunion.
  5. For many adults, sitting through this will be an exercise in tedium. It offers about as much as an oversized, overlong Saturday morning cartoon and if that's where expectations are set, it probably won't disappoint. Talk about setting the bar low, though.
  6. The "Da Vinci Code" was adequate but forgettable. "Angels & Demons" was godawful. Inferno is somewhere in between - watchable but by no means worth the money and effort necessary to see it theatrically.
  7. CQ
    Pretentious and self-indulgent -- those two words come to mind when considering CQ.
  8. A mediocre diversion -– a movie better watched at home where the remote control can be used (if necessary) to fast forward to the film's best part: the obligatory end credit outtakes.
  9. Legend seems like a movie Scorsese might have made if he wasn’t paying attention - the elements are present but they are clumsily assembled and the outcome underwhelms.
  10. There's more contrived melodrama in these two hours than romance fans could reasonably hope for.
  11. If you take The Postman at face value - that it's a straightforward, post- apocalyptic adventure tale, then it could seem like one of the worst movies of the year, if not of all time.
  12. If ever there was a movie that could cause even the most restless sleeper to fall into a deep slumber, this is it.
  13. The energy is missing in the remake because the techniques, which are replicated in a straightforward fashion, are stale.
  14. 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.
  15. There is a perverse enjoyment to be had from something this cheesy, although not enough of one that I can recommend sitting through it. Still, as bad as Creature is, it can be fun, although the level of enjoyment is probably in direct proportion to the viewer's level of intoxication.
  16. Half of what's going on is never explained, and what is explained, doesn't make much sense. And that's just the beginning of the problems encountered in director Paul Anderson's ("Mortal Kombat") poorly executed endeavor.
  17. A script that, at its best, is inconsistent, and, at its worst, is laughably implausible and riddled with obvious flaws.
  18. The narrative is simplistic and lacking in energy, and the characters are sketched instead of fully formed.
  19. At its best, Bad Santa 2 feels like an echo of its predecessor. At its worst, it’s unfunny, crass, and uncomfortable (not in a good way).
  20. The level of quality is such that this does not deserve a theatrical distribution and will only find appeal among pre-teen kids or those who have been fans of the games since their inception more than a decade ago.
  21. Chernobyl Diaries is afflicted with a fatal flaw that damages many horror films: after a better-than-average setup and a promising first half, everything falls apart.
  22. This isn't a family-friendly film - anyone over the age of about 8 will immediately recognize that significant chunks of the story don't make sense.
  23. Here Comes the Boom is stale and vanilla. We know we're in trouble early when the first joke fails.
  24. Ray
    Sluggish, conventional, and almost completely lacking in energy.
  25. It's not so much a bad film as it is a disappointing one. A very disappointing one.
  26. When a movie wants to be sold as a spectacle, it had better deliver something more spectacular than this.
  27. The problem lies in the screenplay which latches on to the few clever and/or funny elements in the film and runs them into the ground via repetition.
  28. This movie isn't bad just because it follows a formula slavishly but because it does so without verve or passion.
  29. 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.
  30. 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.
