  1. A dull, dumb and unforgivably dated thriller, free of thrills and any kind of perfection.
  2. Demolition Man is sleek and empty as well as brutal and pointless.
  3. What Murphy's doing isn't acting; it's masturbation.
  4. The movie that might have been goes down in flames.
  5. This flabby comedy deserves only one thing: to fall on its fat one.
  6. The perfect summer movie, that is if you're eight years old or under. For the rest of us, the sequel to the first "Fantastic Four" that miraculously amassed more than $150 million in 2005, is a plotless, brainless, witless bore.
  7. It's Carell who projects the movie's only sense of mischief. But it's too little and too late.
  8. No comedy this year can beat this dud for mealy-mouthed hypocrisy.
  9. I like Longoria Parker on "Desperate Housewives" and truly believe she could have a career on the big screen if she promises to never again work with writer-director Jeff Lowell, who perpetrated this offense of a ghost comedy on her and on her otherwise gifted co-stars Paul Rudd and Lake Bell.
  10. Nothing the skunk does can begin to match the stench of this movie.
  11. Talk about disappointing. Director Doug Liman exuded style and cool in "Swingers," "Go" and "The Bourne Identity." He lost his way in the star bloat of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," and now his mojo is buried in this amped-up sci-fi chase flick.
  12. Call it "Apocalypto" for pussies -- a PG-13 rating, puh-leese! -- or prehistory for peabrains. Just don’t call it friendo. 10,000 B.C. will take your money, rob your time and hit your brain like a shot of Novacaine.
  13. I'm guessing it's the pressure of an idiot script by Gary Scott Thompson and understandably clueless direction from Jon Avnet that forces Pacino to ham it up so vigorously that you want to garnish him with cloves and a slice of pineapple.
  14. Film critics have been asked to say as little as possible about M. Night Shyamalan's new scare film about the perils of messing with Mother Nature. Fair enough. But I will say this: It's not happening.
  15. Murphy, teaming again with his "Norbit" director Brian Robbins, is assuming we'll all line up for lazyass toilet jokes and pay for the privilege. Prove him wrong, people, please.
  16. The new Mummy is, how can I put it? Just freakin' awful.
  17. It's a major dud.
  18. Righteous Kill, a.k.a. The Al and Bob Show, is a cop flick with all the drama of "Law and Order: AARP." This movie defines drag-ass.
  19. If you're gay and/or eight years old, HSM3 is the movie event of the year.
  20. An irredeemably dull tale.
  21. If you stay and watch the endless end credits, there's a short scene that hints a sequel is coming. That's what I call real pain.
  22. The shortage of wit and the excess of goo can be summed up in Sandler's line to these children of divorce: "I'm like the stink on your feet — I'll always be there."
  23. This crap is supposed to be the chick flick antidote to Super Bowl fever. Ha!
  24. Martin is a gifted physical comic. He deserves an original role tailored to his own talents. Watching something this borrowed just makes me blue.
  25. Audiences with a brain cell left have only one choice: Look for the first exit on the right.
  26. Beware 2012, which works the dubious miracle of almost matching "Transformers 2" for sheer, cynical, mind-numbing, time-wasting, money-draining, soul-sucking stupidity.
  27. The most shocking thing here is the fact that Peter Chelsom directed it. His 1995 movie, "Funny Bones," is a genuinely transgressive piece of dark comedy. I can't detect a trace of Chelsom in Hannah Montana, which means he won't have to wear a blonde wig to hide his shame.
  28. Director Burr Steers, of the terrific "Igby Goes Down," is stuck polishing clichès.
  29. Never comes as close as spitting distance to a laugh.
  30. What I can’t figure out is how director Peter Hyams can remake a 1956 movie from the great Fritz Lang and not learn anything about suspense, pacing and storytelling in the process. This movie is beyond boring. You could stay warm for two hours by striking a match to the wooden acting.
