  1. In the end, you have to possess a sweet spot for Black and his antics to find Tenacious D more than barely watchable.
  2. Unfortunately, much of what's good about Promised Land is easily forgotten as a result of the preachy, impossible-to-swallow final 15 minutes in which the protagonist is subjected to character assassination, the screenplay turns into a sermon, and narrative intelligence is discarded in favor of a message.
  3. The film's disappointingly black-and-white approach robs characters and situations of badly needed ambiguity.
  4. One of the year's most uninspired inspirational stories.
  5. The narrative is simplistic and lacking in energy, and the characters are sketched instead of fully formed.
  6. Probably best skipped - unless you have a penchant for shallow, "comfortable" foreign films that offer obvious messages and never attempt to challenge the viewer.
  7. A thrill-less thriller that uses gore to obfuscate its inability to generate tension, this motion picture has the profile one might expect from a direct-to-video release.
  8. Pride has little to be proud about.
  9. The root problem of The 33 is that, in attempting to do too much, it succeeds at too little.
  10. Tobey Maguire is fine as Nick but his function is more as an observer than a participant. Carey Mulligan's Daisy is unremarkable in every way. And Joel Edgerton is just a mustache twirl away from doing a Snidely Whiplash impersonation.
  11. A little like watching an episode of the TV show of which Adam Sandler is an alum: "Saturday Night Live." Zohan feels like an extended collection of skits tied together by a flimsy umbrella story.
  12. Aside from a powerful performance by Ron Rifkin (reprising his stage role) and a few quietly effective scenes, there's not much reason to subject yourself to a film this off-putting.
  13. MouseHunt is "'Home Alone" with a rodent in the place of Macaulay Culkin.
  14. The only time Sparkle evidences energy is during the song performances, of which there are too few. The half-baked melodrama provides an unappealing and overlong buffer between them that fails to justify the nearly two-hour running time.
  15. A script that, at its best, is inconsistent, and, at its worst, is laughably implausible and riddled with obvious flaws.
  16. The resulting finished project is a series of skits performed by famous people doing favors for a friend, and it works about as well as one might expect from such an endeavor.
  17. The most disappointing aspect of The Iron Lady is that some of the most memorable hallmarks of Thatcher's time in power are glossed over.
  18. The end product feels trite and unfinished, with the romantic plot being awkwardly and unconvincingly shoehorned into a production that lacks focus.
  19. If there’s a compelling reason to remake The Magnificent Seven, it can’t be found in the 2016 version, a loud, cluttered, and generally disappointing production.
  20. 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.
  21. An effective translation of the source material, but that's not necessarily a good thing.
  22. For those who do not consider themselves to be among the Sex and the City faithful, this is a painful experience, perhaps the longest 148 minutes likely to be spent in a movie theater this year. Watching grass grow is more dramatically satisfying.
  23. The over-the-top acting is forgivable, but the plot's incoherence is not.
  24. Strange that a movie about comedy is so lacking in this quality.
  25. It's easily the weakest entry into this ever-expanding category and is inferior to its subtitled source material. Quarantine implies "stay away" and that's not bad advice.
  26. The latest motion picture to take an intriguing premise and flush it into the septic tank.
  27. As punchy and energetic as the first few moments are, the rest of the film quickly falls back into mediocrity.
  28. It takes something lackluster like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to remind viewers why movies like "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" are considered superior.
  29. A dull, meandering storyline and visuals all-but destroyed by a second-rate 3-D conversion make this movie inferior to its predecessors.
  30. Mediocre and recommended only to those who can claim a familiarity with the play.
