  1. Martin is a gifted physical comic. He deserves an original role tailored to his own talents. Watching something this borrowed just makes me blue.
  2. Audiences with a brain cell left have only one choice: Look for the first exit on the right.
  3. Beware 2012, which works the dubious miracle of almost matching "Transformers 2" for sheer, cynical, mind-numbing, time-wasting, money-draining, soul-sucking stupidity.
  4. 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.
  5. Director Burr Steers, of the terrific "Igby Goes Down," is stuck polishing clichès.
  6. Never comes as close as spitting distance to a laugh.
  7. 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.
  8. Aiming for the heartfelt hilarity of "Superbad," I Love You, Beth Cooper is just super bad.
  9. A romantic comedy so numbing it feels like Novocaine.
  10. There’s not a real or spontaneous minute in it.
  11. The cast got to spend a month shooting on Bora Bora. So that explains why they're in the movie. Why you'd spend good money for a ticket to watch them have all the fun and not have any fun yourself passes understanding.
  12. I'd watch the vibrant Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana in anything, but The Time Traveler's Wife is pushing it.
  13. There's a difference between exposing misogyny and crassly exploiting it.
  14. As for the ladies who think any kind of chick flick is preferable to football, be careful what you wish for.
  15. Has no vital signs at all, just crushing dull repetition that makes one noisy, violent scene play exactly like the last one.
  16. Valentine's Day is a date movie from hell.
  17. The brooding RPatz doesn’t bite. But his movie does.
  18. The film is a sham, with good actors going for the paycheck and using beards and heavy makeup to hide their shame.
  19. Jonah is fated to ride alone. Don't make the mistake of keeping him company.
  20. Cage and Baruchel work hard to stay accessible, but the computer-generated effects come on like heavy artillery blowing away any hint of flesh and blood. The Sorcerer's Apprentice should be rated U for Untouched by Human Hands.
  21. It's a little early for self-parody in the career of Vin Diesel. But he's a calamitous cliché in A Man Apart.
  22. Some bad movies should carry a leper's bell to warn off ticket buyers. Such a contagion is Charlie St. Cloud, a load of mawkish swill starring Zac Efron (bereft of the talent he showed in "Me and Orson Welles").
  23. Sorry, no XOXO for this slick, hollow hooey.
  24. The movie left me with the feeling of being trapped with a person of privilege who won't stop with the whine whine whine.
  25. I wanted Paquin, who deserves better than this, to call on her vampire pals from "True Blood" and yell, "sic em!" Oh wait, they're already bloodless.
  26. It could have been the 21st-century Showgirls. I wouldn't have missed that for the world. Instead, Burlesque, starring Cher and Christina Aguilera playing drag queen versions of themselves with all the vitality of Madame Tussauds wax dolls, is a bust that lacks the pizzaz and bugfuck nuttiness of Paul Verhoeven's 1995 trash epic.
  27. Upchuckingly unfunny.
  28. The real plague is the movie, a sci-fi hodgepodge of bad history and worse special effects.
  29. This lame-ass chick-flick sampling of "Crazy Heart" is more like country Kryptonite.
  30. At one point, Black puts out a fire by pissing on it. It's my job as a critic to piss on this dumb excuse for a movie. Consider it done.
