  1. "Mindless" applies, and Book of Secrets is more like a tame, endlessly repetitive amusement park ride than a motion picture.
  2. Devoid of life, intelligence, humor, and anything else that could entertain even the most undemanding viewer, this film is a perfect example of something that should have been shipped to landfills, not multiplexes.
  3. Jennifer's Body mixes, matches, and crosses three popular genres: horror, comedy, and teen angst. Unfortunately, it fails at all of them - and "fails" might be too kind a term.
  4. It is a cinematic abomination -- a source of embarrassment for everyone involved.
  5. This remake replaces suspense with boredom and witty dialogue with lame lines any self-respecting actor should be embarrassed to utter.
  6. Unfortunately, as with too many films being made with the international market in mind, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is a jumble of overhyped action scenes, trite dialogue, painfully bad “character development”, and awful writing.
  7. Redundant and unnecessary.
  8. A soulless jumble of ineptly assembled cliches and pabulum that plays like a 95-minute commercial for NBA properties.
  9. The movie starts cheating the audience early, and never lets up.
  10. There are bad movies and annoying movies, and this one contains elements of both.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Plagued by moralizing so strident and a style so artificial that the story never has a chance to speak to an audience.
  14. The problem with Hostel Part II is the same flaw that afflicted Hostel: no tension.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. It's all about eye candy and the quick tease. It's not over fast enough.
  18. 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.
  19. A tedious, incoherent bore.
  20. 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.
  21. This new horror/romance mashup provides just enough flavor of Jane Austen’s classic to tease without satisfying.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Dull, uninspired, and redundant.
  25. 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.
  26. This movie is so atrocious I kept waiting for Nick Cage to show up.
  27. Instead of generating a testosterone rush, the fight scenes release tryptophan. Not only are they boring, but they are choreographed in an amateurish fashion.
  28. 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.
  29. 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.
  30. As far as I'm concerned, it's official: Hollywood has lost the art of how to make horror films.
