  1. This is the sort of movie that gives "chick flicks" a bad name. It's a cross between inept melodrama and a bad sit-com.
  2. The resulting hodgepodge of unfunny, sophomoric humor and PG-13 T&A, frosted by a sheen of appallingly nauseous "drama," makes for such a noxious brew that it's amazing viewers stay in their seats for the entire production.
  3. It's either a failed experiment or a movie that was rushed through production so Allen could fulfill his one project-per-year commitment.
  4. Watching Imagine That, I was beset by a feeling of intense depression. Is this what Eddie Murphy has become?
  5. The only worthwhile portion of Twin Dragons is the climactic action sequence, but, to get to that, it's necessary to endure more than an hour of unfunny physical comedy and excruciating verbal interaction.
  6. This unexceptional and uninteresting story of a self-pitying borderline-personality teenager verges on being unwatchable as a result of McDonald's decision to bombard the audience with extraneous images in lieu of telling the story.
  7. The result is an unappealing mess, made less bearable by uniformly lackluster performances and the cheesy special effects.
  8. A misfire in far too many meaningful aspects, The Book Thief is so bad that it's tough to decide whether it's better used as a sleep aid or watched while under the influence as an object of derision.
  9. This is a vile and reprehensible motion picture.
  10. A shallow, transparent satire/social commentary, Palindromes lives and dies on a gimmick.
  11. I don't often use the words "godawful" and "abomination" to describe a movie, preferring to reserve such terminology for extreme instances when I feel duped and mortally offended. Case in point: Bachelorette.
  12. With its canned, predictable action sequences and mirthless attempts at humor, it displays an ineptitude that is frankly shocking considering the talent involved.
  13. This is film noir for the MTV generation: fast-paced, slick, flashy, gleefully mindless, and hollow to the core.
  14. Horror fans will be so bored by the first 90 minutes that they will have either walked out or fallen into a coma by the time the blood starts flowing.
  15. A horrifically bad romantic comedy that serves as a celebration of entitlement, consumerism, and shallow behavior.
  16. For those looking for something positive, this is the only movie I can recall that features music from both ABBA ("Does Your Mother Know") and Handel ("Zadok the Priest"). Let's hear it for musical diversity!
  17. Labeling The Call as "relentlessly dumb" would be an overestimation of its intelligence. This is as brain-dead as a movie can be and it assumes the audience will have the I.Q. of a rutabaga.
  18. The Brown Bunny is one long, self-indulgent bore topped off with a hard-core porn scene featuring Gallo and co-star Chloë Sevigny.
  19. Humor is subjective, but this movie made me feel as if I had been subjected to something unpleasant.
  20. A slow, meandering misfire of a movie.
  21. A muddle of a film - an overlong bore that either mistakenly thinks it's something more than a humdrum romance or has incorporated a variety of pretentions as window-dressing.
  22. Stay away from Birth not because of what goes on (or doesn't) in a bathtub, but because this is not a very good movie.
  23. A Perfect Murder has inexplicably managed to eliminate almost everything that was worthwhile about "Dial M for Murder," leaving behind the nearly-unwatchable wreckage of a would-be '90s thriller.
  24. Demolition founders and its overt symbolism feels forced instead of organic. The production is uncomfortable and artificial, lacking internal logic and tonal consistency.
  25. Perhaps the strangest thing about 2012 is that the bad parts of the film are among the most enjoyable, because they're so over-the-top ridiculous that it's impossible not to break out laughing.
  26. Even children, who will be enthralled by all the puppies, may have a hard time not fidgeting for protracted portions of the running time.
  27. If there's one thing this motion picture proves, it's that "The Naked Gun 33 1/3" wasn't the final insult from a founding ZAZ (Zucker/Abrams/Zucker) member; this is.
  28. The comedy is embarrassingly unfunny, the attempts at drama are badly acted and sometimes cringe-worthy, and the copious amounts of blood during the fight sequences fall short of being amusing while sabotaging any hope of taking them seriously.
  29. Lockout is painful. Not painful in the way Uwe Boll or "Sex and the City" movies are painful. But painful enough that I kept waiting for Nicolas Cage to show up. Or Katherine Heigl. Or, god forbid, both.
  30. Of course, the problem with Angels & Demons is that to get to the final 40 minutes, it's necessary to endure the first 90, and that would be defined as cruel and unusual punishment.
