“..woefully short on humour plus a character that never manages to break out of one dimension..”
by Tim Evans [Sky Movies]
1 of 5

“..there’s none more woeful than this muddled “comedy” starring Simon Pegg and written by Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills..”
by David Edwards [Daily Record]
3 of 5

“..there's enough verve and imagination on show to make this debut feature from Kula Shaker's Crispian Mills worth sticking with..”
by Neil Smith [MSN Movies]
2 of 5

“..the slapstick set-pieces can be seen coming from miles away, while the overall gag-count is disappointingly low..”
by Terry Staunton [Radio Times]
“..the film seems to be a little bit of everything and not enough of anything - hence it’s on limited release..”
by Alison Jones [Birminghammail]
“..the film is not left wanting for ideas, with Jack finding the potential for death in the guise of Christmas Carollers, dirty socks and, yes, laundrettes..”
by Steven [Film Ireland]
“..it's clearly a labour of love - something lacking in so much of Hollywoodâ��s contemporary output - and definitely superior to much of it..”
by Kim Francis [Get Reading]
1 of 5

“..hold on to your comfort blanket and have the cloves of garlic handy..”
by Xan Brooks [Guardian [UK]]
1 of 5

“..exasperation eventually morphs into unrelenting pain, and there’s not a single, solitary laugh to be had..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London]
1 of 5

“..a fine stop-motion animation sequence, however, denies it an honest swing at worst-of-the-year status..”
by Robbie Collin [Telegraph]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
