My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006)

This film hovers somewhere between sappy romantic comedy and action movie, falling back on lazy gender-reversal jokes and super hero tropes.

Scary Movie 4 (2006)

This isn't a movie so much as a series of set pieces with a theme of parody in mind, only to quickly devolve into toilet humor of the most literal kind and asinine, gross-out histrionics.

Lost in Translation (2003)

. . . about seeing and not seeing at the same time, a series of incredibly precise, meticulous images of faces and hands and doorframes.
