A very sweet, unremarkable romantic comedy. Steve Carell is a struggling single parent and widower.
- Exterminating Angels, The (2007) 6
A provocative, high-minded exercise about sexual pleasure in film. It's self-indulgent and oh so French.

Eric Leiser's surreal experiment with puppetry, stop-motion sketches and claymation. And unconvincing actors.

- August Rush (2007) 5
An orphaned musical prodigy uses his gift to help find his birth parents. Overtly sentimental.

It's emotional manipulation from Mars. This is K-PAX with a six-year-old instead of Kevin Spacey.
- Mist, The (2007) 5
A fairly derivative, depressing creature-horror film with too much religious ranting. Final scene is staggering.
- Number 23, The (2007) 5
Far-fetched but sometimes clever thriller starring Jim Carrey. 23 equals bad numerology and worse directing.
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) 5
This Disney pirate saga is worse than its predecessor (again). Yo-ho-horribly incoherent. Franchise over yet?

Boring/incoherent/awkward for 90 minutes, then three minutes of cool, then Venom and the climactic battle.

Horrendously unfunny comedy mixes Ping-Pong, kung fu and sophomoric jokes with a secret FBI mission.
- Epic Movie (2007) CRAP
Following the unwatchable Date Movie, now these hacks imitate mega-blockbusters. I enjoyed Jayma Mays.

A poorly written movie about Americans in Africa who are stalked by lions. Embarrassingly bad.
- P.S. I Love You (2007) CRAP
Hilary Swank was miscast among sitcom-quality sentimental actors where everyone is trying to be cute.
