Votes: 8,960 | Gross: $30.50M
In convincing action movies, the actors never seem to anticipate anything. Surprises happen. The results of violence are unpredictable. "Uncommon Valor," however, is one of those irritating movies where the actors sometimes act in a way that makes sense only if they already know what's going to happen next.

Votes: 1,260 | Gross: $2.02M
Winter People is the kind of movie where you sit there asking yourself questions that apparently never occurred to the filmmakers.

Two losers try to pretend that their murdered employer is really alive, leading the hitman to attempt to track him down to finish him off.
Votes: 48,470 | Gross: $30.22M
“Weekend at Bernie’s” makes two mistakes: It gives us a joke that isn’t very funny, and it expects the joke to carry an entire movie.
17. Folks! (1992)
PG-13 | 107 min | Comedy, Drama
A slightly self absorbed yuppie takes in his parents including his senile father, after their home burns down. But his personal and professional life fall apart soon after.

[Director Kotcheff] treats material that might have been effective as dark, nightmare comedy as something bright, bouncy and frivolous, an approach that kills all the laughs and turns shock into mere tastelessness.
