"You know a movie's a dud when even its self-flagellating albino killer monk isn't any fun. "
-- John Beifuss, COMMERCIAL APPEAL (MEMPHIS, TN)
"Retarded, ridiculous and crushingly dull."
-- Devin Faraci, CHUD
"For people who insist that the movie is never as good as the book, your case just got stronger."
-- Matt Pais, METROMIX.COM
" "That it is risible and dim-witted doesn't make it less disgusting."
-- Steven D. Greydanus, DECENT FILMS GUIDE
Even the positive reviews are bad.
So those who say "it's just entertainment" we can now answer "apparently not."
