  1. The result is tepid humor and a less-than-compelling feel-good story of redemption and re-kindled romance.
  2. A blend of lackluster comedy and lazy plotting, the film feels a lot like bad Hitchcock.
  3. It worked once, but the novelty factor is gone. The cheese is still there, but this time it's overlaid with a cynical sense that the only reason the movie exists is because the first one made so much money.
  4. As a shoot-'em-up, blast-'em-to-pieces film, it's not half bad. As a futuristic time travel movie, however, it has some very serious problems.
  5. It would be disingenuous for me to claim that Ted 2 isn't funny. Although I was often bored by the plodding direction of the story, I laughed from time-to-time.
  6. It has the sensibilities of a late-'80s/early-'90s forgettable big-screen sit com and probably won't find many interested viewers who aren't card-carrying AARP members.
  7. It's not so much a bad film as it is a disappointing one. A very disappointing one.
  8. 21
    21 doesn't spin a good enough yarn.
  9. Entirely inoffensive, so it makes for perfect family fare -– but only if the children are young enough to be indiscriminating about what they're seeing.
  10. Were it not for the high profile names of "Hanks" and "Kasdan", this would be a perfect candidate for a direct-to-video release.
  11. Bullet to the Head is bloody and violent but not nearly as much fun as it should be.
  12. The chief pleasure of High Crimes (and it's a limited one) comes from watching Morgan Freeman, who can bring a sense of integrity to even the silliest thriller.
  13. Wonderful World feels like a modern-day half-baked riff on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
  14. There's something a little annoying about a movie that tries this shamelessly to be endearing and family friendly.
  15. Martian Child wants to make us cry. It nearly made me gag. This is an exercise in shameless and inept emotional manipulation.
  16. With a cast featuring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, and Ricky Gervais, one has a right to expect something amusing from Night at the Museum. Oddly, not only is the movie unfunny, but it rarely tries for laughs.
  17. The movie doesn't come close to the family-friendly comedic pseudo-incest flirted with in "Back to the Future." That, apparently, is deemed too unsettling for today's audiences. So 17 Again none-too-cleverly tap dances around these issues.
  18. The Proposal follows a paint-by-numbers script, it fails one key acid test: it doesn't sell the romance.
  19. xXx
    For Vin Diesel, starring in XXX is a wonderfully smart career move. Too bad neither "wonderful" nor "smart" are applicable adjectives to describe this film.
  20. Perhaps the thing that most surprised me is how fingernails-on-blackboard awful the music is.
  21. Much of the film's comedy feels muted; Fun with Dick and Jane isn't a lot of fun.
  22. And, while it's not bad enough for me to suggest that it should have been left where it came from, this certainly isn't a shining example of Australian cinema.
  23. Failure to Launch fails at more than just launching. It fails at romance and comedy.
  24. The film is preposterous to the point of distraction, where the necessary level of suspension of disbelief exceeds the capacity of a normal, thinking person.
  25. The product is akin to a mediocre '80s sex comedy (with minimal nudity) and "daring" is a descriptor only the most naïve and puritanical would employ.
  26. One of those movies in which the principals talk a lot but don't say much.
  27. A small group of viewers will find in Burlesque a gem to treasure for years to come. It's a bad movie lover's wet dream. For the average multiplex stalker, however, it exists somewhere between inconsequential and a waste of time, so that's where I'll peg it.
  28. It's compelling in the way many B-movies are - cheap, sleazy, and lacking the depth we have come to associate with this director.
  29. This is not a good movie but, considering what Halloween has evolved into over the course of seven sequels, it's perhaps better than it has a right to be.
  30. Recommended only for die-hard fans of the TV show. Others are advised to wait until this is available in a smaller format.
