[Vol One: 2000 to 2010]
from Ben Affleck to Catherine Zeta-Jones
Surviving Christmas (2004) - "Affleck?s goose is cooked with Surviving Christmas, a movie that makes Gigli look like one of the crowning moments in his career ? How did Affleck get so far on so little?"
Jami Bernard in The New York Daily News
Intolerable Cruelty (2003) - "Zeta Jones isn?t quite up to it. There?s a certain try-hard coldness about this performance: her eyes betray a mind that appears to be constantly trying not to forget something."
Jason Solomons in The Mail on Sunday
2. SCREEN TEAMS
TIM ALLEN, MARTIN LAWRENCE,
WILLIAM H. MACY & JOHN TRAVOLTA
Wild Hogs (2007) - "Looking at the actors on the poster outside the cinema triggers a kind of awestruck anticipation. They are four faces on a Mount Rushmore of rubbishness. Which one of these Hollywood middleweights is going to be the most utterly abysmal? Which is going to phone in the most inept performance? It?s like King Kong versus Godzilla versus Alien versus Predator: all four creatures lined up on the starting blocks for the 100m Terrible Acting event."
Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian
VINCE VAUGHAN & OWEN WILSON
Wedding Crashers (2005) - "Vaughn and Wilson appear to be running on freebie-buffet fumes."
Peter Relic in Rolling Stone magazine (2006)
3. BEHIND THE SCREENS
[ Directors, Producers, Screenwriters, etc. ]
from Wes Anderson to David Zucker
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) - "Woody Allen, what happened? You stink on toast."
Paul Chambers on CNN
My Boss? Daughter (2003) - "David Zucker ... directs this mess like a substitute teacher soldiering through a day's work for a day's pay at a decertified school."
Lisa Schwarzbaum in Entertainment Weekly
from Angels & Demons to Zoom
"A big, dumb movie built to make money but hardly worthy of serious examination. Avatar isn't only critic-proof, it resists serious criticism. You might as well analyze a beach ball."
Philip Martin in The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Zoolander is a one-joke movie - models are vain, bulimic morons - and it wears out faster than a pair of paper panties."
Rita Kempley in The Washington Post
