The Bad Review Revue

Dukes of Hazzard: “The less said about Jessica Simpson’s performance the better. From the neck down she fulfills all the requirements, but, honestly, I think General Lee might do a better job with the dialogue.” — Connie Ogle [ha!], MIAMI HERALD

cry_wolf: “These tropes have already been recycled enough to make Greenpeace proud.” — Marc Savlov, AUSTIN CHRONICLE

Stay: “[Director] Marc Forster takes a maximalist approach to this mumbo jumbo, which means that in addition to lots of wacky angles, shiny surfaces, seemingly endless stairs, and sets of twins, triplets and quadruplets, he deploys the unsettling vision of three talented actors – Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts and Ryan Gosling – straining credulity and neck tendons in the service of serious claptrap.” — Manohla Dargis, NEW YORK TIMES

Domino: “The movie is trash shot to look like art imitating trash.” — Owen Gleiberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Brothers Grimm: “Easily the ugliest film Gilliam’s ever made, a movie shot with a lens someone forgot to wipe. It’s also his loudest: Every scene is amped up to 11, and every line of dialogue is delivered as though it’s a cry for help from the bottom of the well.” — Robert Winsonsky, DALLAS OBSERVER

Waiting: “Geared to 16-year-olds who can’t name the governor of their state. ” — Mike Clark, USA TODAY
