  1. The recycling goes as deep as the dialogue, which is a mangled and blended refrain of clich├ęs.
  2. Sadly, about the nicest thing I can say about What Happens in Vegas is that I didn't hate it - although I suppose that's something.
  3. The breath of fresh air, to the extent that one can be identified in the staleness of this recycled refuse, is John Cleese.
  4. Overlong and at times tedious; the taste is gritty and lingers unpleasantly.
  5. Yes, the film is interesting, but it doesn't work.
  6. It's a depressing experience to view something like Saw IV. It's not just the soullessness that's dispiriting, but the lack of invention. When a movie does little more than repeat what its predecessors accomplished with grotesque effectiveness, it's past time to tip this corpse into its grave and bury it.
  7. The strength of Push is its relentlessness. The movie doesn't pause for anything and, when it provides exposition, it does so without bringing the action to a grinding halt.
  8. On balance, I think I'd rather have seen Rocky 15.
  9. Feels jumbled and disorganized. It's not altogether unpalatable, but that doesn't present it from being a mess.
  10. Once the setup is over, however, Indecent Proposal starts to fall apart, with the implausibilities and contrivances getting worse with every passing minute.
  11. Plastic characters, chaotic camerawork, lots of things blowing up, and an incredibly dumb screenplay. In short, it represents a great time at the movies for anyone who has recently undergone a frontal lobotomy.
  12. By trying to satisfy every kind of viewer, it's possible that Sphere may end up pleasing no one.
  13. The Clone Wars is the last nail in a coffin that has been propped up ever since George Lucas sold his creative soul in the quest for a few more pieces of gold.
  14. 70 minutes into the 90-minute process, I was engaged. Then it all collapsed.
  15. Liman applies the same frenetic approach to action scenes that made "The Bourne Identity" such an engaging and exciting affair.
  16. An unfocused mess, with poor chemistry all around and an ending that's as firm and satisfying as an overcooked noodle.
  17. For a mostly brainless movie, The Expendables 3 has a surprisingly dense plot, which is part of the problem. The 2-hour running length is unnecessarily long.
  18. The storyline is so infantile that it will appeal to young kids.
  19. Captures the essence of its TV inspiration, which is to say that it's not nearly as clever as it thinks it is. It also feels very, very long.
  20. From start to finish, A Life Less Ordinary feels like a group of sometimes amusing, sometimes clever, and sometimes tedious skits forced to fit together.
  21. It is a ghastly experience, and I left the theater feeling as if I had waded neck-deep through a stream of raw sewage.
  22. This film mistakes action for energy, ridiculous circumstances for comedy, and a mismatched male/female pairing for romance.
  23. There's nothing remotely memorable about this walk.
  24. To work, The Host would have required a visionary interpretation rather than the mundane telling that Niccol opts for.
  25. 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.
  26. The film is too energetic, too jaw-droppingly campy, and too silly not to be enjoyed and celebrated on some level. "Cheesy" doesn't even begin to describe it, yet that's at the heart of its perverse charm. Now, that's entertainment!
  27. Post Grad isn't funny, surprising, or insightful enough to provoke more than a ho-hum reaction. It's not bad in the way that many failed comedies are bad; it's simply uninspired.
  28. There are quite a few unintentionally funny moments, although the overall experience was too intensely painful for me to be able to advocate it as being "so bad, it's good."
  29. This feels a lot like some of the recent, unwatchable Adam Sandler offerings: boorish, unfunny comedy colliding with saccharine, quasi-dramatic filler.
  30. It will bore you.
