The Bad Review Revue

Yogi Bear: “Yogi Bear gives cheap hackwork a bad name. Which is a shame, because hackwork made this industry.” — Michael Phillips, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

The Green Hornet: “The film’s only unqualified success is the end title sequence-because it’s genuinely stylish, because it looks like it was shot in genuine 3-D and, most of all, because it’s the end.” — Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL

The Tourist: “There are all kinds of bad movies in the world, but it’s really only stardom that can create the exact variety of cinematic abortion we find in The Tourist.” — Mick LaSalle, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Gulluiver’s Travels: “At one point, Black puts out a fire by pissing on it. It’s my job as a critic to piss on this dumb excuse for a movie. Consider it done.” — Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

Little Fockers: “Little Fockers may not be the worst, most vulgar, most pathetic and least funny picture of the year. But it’s a strong contender for second place behind the picture Brett Favre allegedly sent over his cellphone.” — Kyle Smith, NEW YORK POST

    Nice to see you again, Matthew!
    Great tweet this morning re: intersection of 18t and 21st century.

  3. “Cheap hackwork made this industry.” Beautiful. Unlike the blogosphere, which was made by pricey dilettantism.
