Pinkett Smith, who was so good in her supporting role in The Nutty Professor, is here little more than a mannequin for skimpy clothes.

A romantic comedy that strains for the screwball heights of Bringing Up Baby but mainly seems unfunny and unpleasant.

Woo disappoints on so many levels, lacking in wit and intelligence, characters with any sense of dimension and a coherent story line.

A painfully graceless comedy that reworks After Midnight, Blind Date and Booty Call into something monstrous and untoward.

The whole thing is rude and pathetic, more like a lengthy episode of a bad sitcom than a movie, chock full of the kind of sexual innuendoes that are guaranteed to please horny eighth-graders or people who laugh at those Playboy party jokes.

This Manhattan-based romantic comedy might be fun if it didn't hit you over the head with a sledgehammer every few minutes.

A graceless and gratingly unfunny comedy that brings out the worst in just about everybody involved.

Equally unengaging are hero Tim (Davidson), the wimpish buppie who loves her, and his male buddies, who provide the requisite quota of chauvinism.

Movies like this don't really establish their characters and draw much of the humor out of their personalities; they go for quick payoffs, easy slapstick and in-jokes based on insults and code words.

An incoherent romantic comedy whose sexy title character (played by Ms. Smith) is an unbearable, unfunny pain in the neck.

The constant reliance upon unfunny, moronic humor sinks the project.

Woo may be as skimpy as a sequined halter top, but it's undeniably appealing nonetheless.
