  1. The inevitable twist ties things neatly together before leading to a confusing, borderline-indecipherable ending that fails to satisfy on a number of levels.
  2. Hall Pass isn't by any means flawless, but its ability to integrate extreme scatological humor with moments of genuine feeling is rare.
  3. It's all about eye candy and the quick tease. It's not over fast enough.
  4. A fast-food type of movie - it looks good in the commercials and is easy to sit through, but it doesn't offer much in the way of satisfaction.
  5. It is involving and entertaining, and features an intriguing, independent heroine.
  6. What's sad is that Elizabethtown contains two GREAT sequences.
  7. This new horror/romance mashup provides just enough flavor of Jane Austen’s classic to tease without satisfying.
  8. This represesents the smartest high-budget, high-profile science fiction film to have come along in quite some time.
  9. This brash, glitzy, energetic entertainment has the power to hold an audience enraptured, but, at the same time, there's a sense that what we're experiencing is just candy for the eyes and ears.
  10. Unfortunately, while Fanboys has moments of success, it is mostly a middling road picture that doesn't do a lot more than any average, forgettable entry into the tired genre.
  11. It’s competently made and sporadically compelling but not likely to pique the interest of anyone unfamiliar with the main character.
  12. In a curious way, Snatched is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.
  13. Hawke has made this movie his way and the result is a story that is by turns romantic and disquieting. It's well worth the price of admission.
  14. Quality-wise, however, there's a big drop off from sex, lies and videotape to Full Frontal.
  15. 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.
  16. Mechanical and artificial, and tells you what to think.
  17. Smokin' Aces is Tarantino lite - a vague and unsuccessful attempt to bring together a bunch of offbeat, unrelated characters in a situation where a bloody resolution is inescapable.
  18. 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.
  19. In the final analysis, The Expendables is little more than an ordinary, uninspired action feature.
  20. Likely won't please fans of the original TV series, but the movie hasn't been made for them.
  21. What's missing? Simple: the romance. This movie is so intent upon getting cheap laughs and putting the protagonists in uncomfortable situations that it forgets they're supposed to be falling in love.
  22. The absence of originality and inspiration isn't Mad City's only problem -- it also suffers from a shocking lack of subtlety.
  23. The Break-Up is like Danny DeVito's "The War of the Roses," but without the wit, the acid, and the blacker-than-black humor.
  24. The reason to see Chasing Mavericks is the same reason why people flock to shore locations when a hurricane approaches: the waves. This is less effective as a bio-pic of Jay Moriarty than it is as a big screen National Geographic Special.
  25. A thoughtful, almost poetic, piece that puts forth the argument that redemption is not easily achieved.
  26. Paced more like an action movie than a drama, and, when a pause finally occurs at the end credits, we realize that it hasn't been an altogether satisfying ride.
  27. It is possible to make an engaging action/adventure picture of this sort, but The Scorpion King isn't it. The movie isn't godawful, but it's far from inspired, and, as I sat through its 90 minute running length, I found my mind wandering.
  28. The latest offering from Edward Zwick, the director of "Glory," is the kind of movie that doesn't require much effort to surrender to and enjoy.
  29. The material isn't sufficiently funny to allow me to forgive the film's feeble storyline and two-dimensional inhabitants.
  30. A grim experience, with too little wit and humor to compensate for its faults, and the upbeat ending feels like a cheat. Thornton is good, but not worth the price of a ticket.
