Rarely has a movie this harmless turned this tone-deaf in its last reel.

The movie pitches itself as a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, but its execution is so lazy and inept that if the lovers were to die horribly it would come more as relief than tragedy.

The depths of stupidity that Mix plunges to are alarming, even for something this intentionally insignificant.

I suggest Underwood be relegated to more Tremors sequels.

[A] dreadful romantic gangland drama...In The Mix is an on-screen, vapid Valentine's Day card to Usher's professional ego and the giddy-minded skirts.

In the Mix has clearly been made by people who want to make a few bucks off Usher, and who have seen a few Sopranos episodes.

The failure is with a script as ungainly as it is and an oversimplified conception of American-Italian and black cultures.

Usher's fans will enjoy his frequent wardrobe changes and a couple of scenes where he takes off his shirt, but it's hard to imagine how anyone who doesn't kiss his poster goodnight could get his or her money's worth from this film.

we can hope that the steady march of progress will render this movie entirely worthless in the not-too-distant future.

People richer than you get paid to come up with this stuff.

It's clearly conceived solely as a star vehicle for the ubiquitous Usher and his washboard abs, with plot coherence and originality coming in somewhere lower in the pecking order.

This movie is for die-hard Usher fans only. And by this I mean teen-age girls, who no doubt will enjoy this.

Let it be said that as an actor, Usher would probably make a pretty good zither player.

It's not exactly atrocious, but it constantly makes you wonder why those involved couldn't find something better to do.

A jumble of genres including mob melodrama, bodyguard romance and interracial love story, none of which is handled in a remotely satisfying manner.

Mix, however, never once veers from its main mission. That would be superstar as product placement.

Even an R-rated directors cut wouldn't be enough to make me sit through In the Mix again.

If you don't buy into the idea that Usher is the foxiest brother ever to set foot on the screen, you are probably not the target audience for 'Mix,' since it has little else to offer except sizable servings of beefcake.
