The Bad Review Review

Christmas With The Kranks: “Egregiously mediocre and flagrantly ill-conceived in every department, this is, truly, the cinematic equivalent of finding a single solitary Saltine in your stocking and a pair of old tube socks beneath the tree.” — Marc Savlov, AUSTIN CHRONICLE

Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason: “All the charm of a canceled CBS sitcom.” — Robert Wilonsky, DALLAS OBSERVER

Alexander: “Both the sex and the battle sequences here look like football plays drawn by an NFL coach and shot by the wide receiver’s mother.” — Carrie Rickey, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

After The Sunset: “Utterly devoid of wit, excitement and any reason for being.” — Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

National Treasure: “If the Founding Fathers had known National Treasure would be the result of their efforts to forge a new nation, they might have reached for the Wite-Out.” — Jami Bernard, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Birth: “Might have qualified as dumb fun if they hadn’t left out the fun.” — Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
