Who knew 'Dumb And Dumber' would turn out to be one of the most influential films of all time?

The not-funniest comedy of the year so far.

Occasionally, a film comes around that is so bad it's hilarious. This is not that film. This film just plain sucks.

At best, it's a five-minute late-night sketch; at worst, a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Though not without its screwball charm, The Brothers Solomon suffers from a lack of comic inspiration long before the film reaches the third trimester.

Shows how far SNL has fallen in its attempt to create original comedy; other times, it makes the Farrelly Brothers seem tasteful.

I was so angry at everybody involved in the making of this film. It's just astonishing.

During the fallow opening minutes of The Brothers Solomon, I started keeping track of how much time would elapse before it made me laugh. Still waiting.

With The Brothers Solomon, Will Arnett continues to squander the goodwill he engendered as Gob on Arrested Development.

A readily-forgettable romantic comedy which, unfortunately, entirely fails to be funny along the way

Solomon is episodic and desperate, leaving nothing to get excited about, with the possible exception of the end credits. I was pretty happy to see those sweet babies arrive.

A series of musty gross-out gags ranging in sophistication from sperm bank hijinks to sloppy man-on-man kissing, Bob Odenkirk's cringemaker-with-a-heart is a ragged Xerox of Dumb And Dumber that seems incredibly creaky after the summer of Superbad.

It can't be a coincidence that the movie's initials are 'B.S.'

It's a moderately funny premise in search of some real laughs.

The Brothers Solomon is still on the beach with its head in the sand.

What feels like a three-hour descent into boredom is only a 90-minute test of might -- pitting you against unlikable characters, horribly written dialogue, and direction that's as painful as a root canal.
