    Throwing your $10.25 down a storm drain is a better idea; at least that way you won't feel the added self-loathing of wasting more than an hour and a half of your life watching Eva Mendes in the worst acting job of her career. show more

    The Spirit is uneven, but its campy adventure provides some amusing, escapist fun. show more

    Worst movie ever. Frank Miller is a no talent hack when it comes to movies.
