  1. Most of American Psycho just sits there, looking at trouble, rather than looking for it - complacent, overjoyed in fact to exist at all.
  2. A terribly bad movie, one of the worst of its kind in recent years.

  3. Highfalutin swill determined to pass itself off as a jazzy caper.
  4. If your name's on the marquee, chances are your agent's already dead.

  5. Breaks new ground both as an abominable enterprise in guy-talk and as no-budget hackwork.

  6. It's an experience as frustrating as watching Jeff Gordon drive a stock car through a bowl of oatmeal.
    • 52 Metascore

    Unfortunately, the contemporary horror movie has ceased being an individual work full of surprises and fresh manifestations of the Gothic imagination - it has, instead, been reduced to the level of an inflexible, repetitious, ritualistic event.
  7. If only director Luis Llosa and his cast could see the joke and seize upon it; instead, like its computer-morphed snake, the film doesn't have a clever bone in its body.
  8. Overlong, naggingly pretentious, more absurd than absurdist and a cruel, cruel bore.
  9. It is a traffic jam of broken hearts, fluxing racial identities and deplorable outfits that has everything but a salsa overhaul of "I Will Survive."

    This film may set an all-time record for shortest time between the big screen and your local video store.
  10. Another "Exorcist" bastard -- one with a chick-flick pedigree.
  11. That Berkley cannot act is indisputable. But her dancing looks like a seizure.
  12. One long offensive treatise on just how vile two human beings can be.
