  1. The over-the-top acting is forgivable, but the plot's incoherence is not.
  2. Grumpier Old Men isn't as fun, spontaneous, or amusing as the original. In short, it's a poor retread that can't be redeemed by the pleasure of seeing Lemmon and Matthau together.
  3. The movie doesn't offer enough to make it interesting or even diverting.
  4. Director Brett Ratner has always been associated with spectacle but, even for him, this represents a misstep because the "wow!" factor is muted.
  5. Never representative of more than mediocrity from a technical or story-based standpoint, the Ice Age series has reached a new nadir with its third entry.
  6. There are times when the story behind the making of a film is more interesting than the finished product. This is one of those occasions.
  7. A clear case of a narrative running out of steam. Exhaustingly repetitive, this movie attempts many of the same things its predecessor did but with less succes.
  8. The screenplay stretches the viewer's credulity far beyond the breaking point, asking us to accept dozens of absurd contrivances and coincidences.
  9. Instead of being respectful of Bram Stoker's creation, it attempts to remake him as a tragic figure with superhero powers.
  10. The Amityville Horror fails as a movie, but, if you are searching for are a few good scares, you'll find them here.
  11. It's compelling in the way many B-movies are - cheap, sleazy, and lacking the depth we have come to associate with this director.
  12. This film, which places yet another actor in the batsuit, has all the necessary hallmarks of a sorry sequel -- pointless, plodding plotting; asinine action; clueless, comatose characterization; and dumb dialogue.
  13. There's little here that's new or interesting; the movie is for hard-core Romero devotees only.
  14. Those who love to cry at movies will doubtless get their money's worth from The Man Without a Face. Others, I imagine, will discover in this movie what I did: a curious mixture of scenes that work and situations that seem hopelessly contrived or overly-sentimental. I didn't hate the film, and after the jarring first half-hour, it kept my attention, but The Man Without a Face never strays far from familiar territory.
  15. Quickly causes viewers to lose patience, then interest.
  16. The clumsy and obvious byproduct of the financial success of its predecessor last Halloween, this movie has no reason for existing except to provide Paramount Pictures with a few extra shekels.
  17. Eternal isn't that bad. Actually, it is. But it's kind of fun, too, in a way only cheesy exploitation films can be fun.
  18. This grim, joyless motion picture is anything but fun. It’s a chore to sit through, with all the blazing, noisy pyrotechnics proving unable to lighten the mood.
  19. Four Christmases is waste of time and a disappointment, but it's also relatively painless.
  20. It lacks the simple elegance and intelligence of the earlier film, and employs special effects and pointless action scenes to replace passages of dialogue.
  21. The end product feels trite and unfinished, with the romantic plot being awkwardly and unconvincingly shoehorned into a production that lacks focus.
  22. The limp movie seems to be an attempt by an Australian to mimic a bad American romantic comedy, and, unfortunately, he succeeds admirably.
  23. The Dilemma downshifts from slapstick to melodrama and back so abruptly that it is at times jarring.
  24. Mechanical and artificial, and tells you what to think.
  25. Those who love Robert Rodriguez's over-the-top Grindhouse-flavored spoofs will delight in this one but, ultimately, this is probably one Machete too many.
  26. Doomsday tries to cram so much into its limited 105 minutes that aspects end up feeling rushed and confused (especially the political situation in England) and the ending is perfunctory.
  27. A blend of lackluster comedy and lazy plotting, the film feels a lot like bad Hitchcock.
  28. Ron Livingstone plays his part relatively straight, and, as a result, comes out unscathed.
  29. Had Home of the Brave presented credible stories about believable characters, it might have been a powerful drama.
  30. Taken 2 is more of the same, except a little bigger, a little dumber, and a little less invigorating.
