It sucks to waste your money and your time on bad movies. Of course, your individual enjoyment is subjective, but here are five films in theaters this week that were panned by critics — either our own or reviewers from elsewhere on the internet.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
"It's amazing how run-of-the-mill this big-budget blockbuster about giant prehistoric creatures feels." Read my full review.
"In the end, Superfly is as it was advertised: a stylistic gangsta movie. If you see it hoping it will change your life, that's on you, not the movie." Read Dawn Burkes' full review.
Hollywood Reporter says, "Tag is neither bad nor good, but rather, despite its out-there story, almost numbingly ordinary: an easy, breezy action-com that's sometimes amusing but rarely funny, competent rather than inspired."
Variety says this movie "Attempts to marry cheap genre thrills with an unflinching depiction of the horrors of international sex trafficking, only to cheapen the latter and cast a grimy pall over the former."
Life of the Party
USA Today says, "The college comedy is a frequent rite of passage for actors, from Rodney Dangerfield to Ryan Reynolds, with some some honest-to-goodness classics in those hallowed halls. But not so much Melissa McCarthy's hopelessly derivative entry into the canon."
