  1. Billed as an action comedy, The Green Hornet isn't funny, and the action is often too frenetic to make any impression.
  2. A sitcom pilot idea stretched to feature length boredom.
  3. If anyone could harness McCarthy's dynamo presence while protecting her from looking bad, it should be Falcone. Instead, Tammy suggests no one had the heart to tell this hot Hollywood couple that it wasn't working.
  4. Move along, guys. Nothing to see in The Lucky One, unless you're in the doghouse at home and need to make nice.
  5. Our Family Wedding should embarrass Whitaker and each of his co-stars, perhaps except Carlos Mencia, whose chief attribute as an actor is that he's a so-so standup comedian.
  6. Yes, there is a hell, and this movie is showing at its local multiplex.
  7. If the first 90 minutes of Girl Most Likely grate and disappoint, wait until the final 10 or so, when directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini try covering their maniacally depressive tracks like cats in a litter box.
  8. The Art of Getting By is enough to drive a movie critic to drink. The next round's on the kid in the overcoat.
  9. This messy mix of sci-fi horror and post-Superbad raunchiness didn't make me laugh once. Not a single snicker, chortle or smile.
  10. Something Borrowed is a romantic comedy in which absolutely no one deserves to end up happy.
  11. This is summer entertainment at its mindless, violent worst featuring plenty of squishy, crunchy sounds and sickening makeup X effects to satisfy undiscerning blood-and-guts audiences. Moviegoers looking for pacing, character development or delightful thrills must seek shelter elsewhere. [11 July 1992, p.3D]

  12. I wouldn't even DVR What's Your Number? if under house arrest and starved for entertainment. I've got this movie's number, and it's zero.
  13. A smarter-than-average bear becomes a dumber-than-usual kiddie flick with Yogi Bear, the lone Christmas release specifically aimed at children, so it automatically qualifies as their lump of coal.
  14. It's all megalomaniacal junk from Snyder, but that isn't his most offensive move.
  15. Fans of either Smith will be sorely disappointed. The elder never before appeared this listless on screen, and the younger misplaced his unforced rapport with the camera that made the Karate Kid reboot so impressive. Only Shyamalan delivers what moviegoers expect from him, and that's a shame.
  16. Your Highness is drive-by directing at its laziest, linking late-night sketch ideas in a quest for comedy as difficult to locate as the Holy Grail.
  17. Alex Cross is slipshod cinema hoping to capitalize on a star out of his orbit here.
  18. A timid new take on the old fairy tale, and it's pretty grim.
  19. A comedy abomination, tasteless and useless to a stunning degree, with storied actors smugly collecting paychecks for sullying their careers.
  20. None of these complaints would matter if The Bounty Hunter possessed even a smidgen of inspired comedy. It doesn't.
  21. Through it all, Marshall sticks to his rose-colored principles: You gotta have hope, listen to your heart and take leaps of faith. Plus a new one: Parker should never make it through a movie without at least one pair of fabulous shoes.
  22. Everybody's cyber-pal Ashton Kutcher is perfect casting for Killers, since the screenplay is shallow as a Tweet and the movie appears to have been shot with a Nikon point-and-click camera he plugs on TV.
  23. For the love of movies, stay away.
  24. The Last Airbender makes the cartoon version with its ratchet-jawed characters and clunky animation seem like a Pixar classic.
  25. There are cheesy pleasures found in Left Behind's ineptness.
