  1. There's gangsta rap with funnier insights into the opposite sex.
  2. As movies about relic sex machines go, this one lacks mojo.
  3. In stupidity, this movie ranks up there among the greats.
  4. The best that can be said about this film is that it's watchable, and that's not the way it could or should be.
  5. It's a movie so foul even the folks at the NAACP Image Awards would have to look the other way.

  6. While it may be true that in space no one can hear you scream, groaning should be a perfectly audible way of saying the intergalactic alien-buster Wing Commander sucks.
  7. An hour into the picture, Spade offers a pretty funny imitation of belter Neil Diamond, but it's a long 60 minutes for such a pitiful payoff.

    Korine's trying to offer a radical vision of rotten America, but the whole thing feels warmed over.
  8. Hush, which is an absurdly bad mixture of "Rosemary's Baby" and any Bette Davis movie from the 1960s, seems to be a classic case of a grasping mother trying to possess her beloved son.
  9. Another "Exorcist" bastard -- one with a chick-flick pedigree.
  10. Tedious, unfunny.
  11. That Berkley cannot act is indisputable. But her dancing looks like a seizure.
  12. Cult shocker has been turned into throwaway megaplex fodder.

  13. This is right up there with the dumbest pictures of the year.
  14. The movie is a dismal and misguided special-effects romp featuring two of the deadest performances recorded this year so far.
  15. Breaks new ground both as an abominable enterprise in guy-talk and as no-budget hackwork.

  16. If filmmaking has ever been less thrilling and more disengaging, I'd like to see it.
