  1. A soulless jumble of ineptly assembled cliches and pabulum that plays like a 95-minute commercial for NBA properties.
  2. The movie starts cheating the audience early, and never lets up.
  3. There are bad movies and annoying movies, and this one contains elements of both.
  4. It's a cloying, humorless motion picture whose only assets are the work of Jim Henson's Creature Shop and a couple of good one-liners by a pair of rodents.
  5. Too long and too full of itself to offer more than a few fleeting moments of entertainment. It doesn't take long for tediousness to triumph.
  6. Plagued by moralizing so strident and a style so artificial that the story never has a chance to speak to an audience.
  7. The problem with Hostel Part II is the same flaw that afflicted Hostel: no tension.
  8. Who would have imagined that a movie about sex could be so boring? That's the bottom line when it comes to Fifty Shades of Grey.
  9. A woefully underwritten motion picture that starts out as a dumb comedy before taking an ill-advised detour into mawkish sentimentality. The last 30 minutes of Bruce Almighty is so godawful that it almost sent me screaming from the theater.
  10. It's all about eye candy and the quick tease. It's not over fast enough.
  11. It has all the elements one would expect from a "so bad it's good" feature: cheesy dialogue, a script that could have been written by two chimpanzees, acting that would make a high school drama teacher cringe, and lots of tight female bodies poured into tiny bikinis. Despite all of that, however, I found Into the Blue to be a real trial.
  12. A tedious, incoherent bore.
  13. This isn't just typical, unchallenging Hollywood drek -- it's typical, unchallenging Hollywood drek made by people who don't care, for people who don't care.
  14. It boggles the mind to consider that the fertile writing team of Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer, all of whom spent time scripting episodes of "Seinfeld," could turn out something as abysmally unfunny as Eurotrip.
  15. There's nothing worse than a film which mistakenly believes it's the comic event of the year. For no legitimate reason whatsoever, When Nature Calls is full of itself to the point of being offensive.
  16. Dull, uninspired, and redundant.
  17. Chaos Theory stumbles from one contrived circumstance to the next, and there's not a moment in this entire mess that conveys any sort of genuine human emotion or reaction.
  18. Instead of generating a testosterone rush, the fight scenes release tryptophan. Not only are they boring, but they are choreographed in an amateurish fashion.
  19. Calling Delivery Man a "comedy" is a bit of a stretch, because it's rarely funny. Dumb, yes, but not in a way that's worthy of more than a half-hearted chuckle.
  20. A "Jennifer Aniston movie" has become synonymous with "derivative, lackluster mediocrity," and it's a shame. We know she has both talent and charisma but nothing on her recent resume has allowed her to display those qualities. So we're stuck with films that are at best forgettable and at worst painful.
  21. As far as I'm concerned, it's official: Hollywood has lost the art of how to make horror films.
  22. Devil will do little to dispel the growing belief that Shyamalan is a one-trick pony whose horse has keeled over. The laughter during the trailer was sadly prescient; the film is a joke.
  23. There is no truth to the rumor that free frontal lobotomies will be performed at the entrance to all theaters showing Eagle Eye.
  24. Fans of the original will end up doing shot-by-shot comparisons. On every level, The Omen isn't just bad filmmaking, it's bad storytelling.
  25. The only reason any male could have for seeing The Vow is the hope of getting laid afterwards. The only reason any female could have for seeing The Vow is if she views the plots of Harlequin romance novels as the height of modern storytelling.
  26. Watching this movie, I wished I knew how to use dental floss, a paper clip, and a crumpled movie ticket to break the projector.
  27. With a script that waffles between being hilariously absurd and insultingly stupid, and action scenes that won't cause anyone's pulse to skip a beat, Paycheck is less appealing than a lump of coal in a Christmas stocking.
  28. The really disgusting thing about this movie isn't the crude jokes themselves, but how grossly unfunny they all are.
  29. Newell has followed up a respectable adaptation of a Harry Potter novel with an ignominious translation of something more delicate and literate. It's hard to recommend this movie to anyone except perhaps the MST3K crew.
  30. Meet Joe Black has the dubious distinction of being the longest film to date of 1998. It is also one of the most tedious and bombastic.
