    Don't Look Up

    ★★

    An egregious two-and-a-half hours of a smug Adam McKay and a misguided cast tapping each other on their backs, congratulating and laughing at their own terrible jokes.

    3. Chris O'Donnell has the charisma of a toilet seat.
    4. George Clooney's leather nipples.
    5. Bat bombs. Bat…

    Water for Elephants

    It's handsomely made but when an elephant out-acts the cast you know it's no classic.
