Bake a 'Men In Black' pie; throw in some 'Ghostbusters,' 'This Is the End,' 'True Grit,' and 'Weeds,' drain the fun out, and you get the half-baked, derivative 'R.I.P.D.'

The kind of terrible that doesn't wash out, destined to be remembered among the pantheon of big budget bombs like "The Adventures Of Pluto Nash" and "Cutthroat Island."

What we are left with is a mildly entertaining, utterly harmless mid-summer blockbuster that marks another misstep in the career of Ryan Reynolds.

It's not a buddy-cop movie, nor is it an action movie. It's just one vaguely funny joke told for 98 minutes.

It's a predictable and cliché filled soap opera mess played straight with an afterlife gimmick.

Thankfully, "R.I.P.D." is a short film, with a duration of only 96 minutes. But I was wishing for its ending long before then.

Bridges may be doing this for the pay cheque but at least he seems determined to give value for money.

Forgiving viewers may find enjoyment in R.I.P.D. but the film is so choppy and half-baked that living, thinking, moviegoers should let this one rest in peace.

R.I.P.D isn't as bad as everyone says, mainly because Jeff Bridges plays a thoroughly entertaining Western lawman, but it's still not a winner by any means.

When Jeff Bridges being thrown under a bus is the best thing a film has to offer, that's when you know that that paved cinematic road ahead of you is going to be unreasonably rough.

R.I.P.D. does offer a pretty good idea of what the afterlife might look like to someone suffering macular degeneration.

Who thought this was a good idea and why are they still allowed out alone at night?

It's an unpleasant way to pass a couple summer hours.

So generic a cut-and-paste job is the film's every aesthetic cue, it's surprising to even find a director's name surface in the closing credits.

Bridges has fun slumming here, but even he can't save it from kicking the bucket about halfway through.

A colossal mess of an action movie.

a film so preoccupied with style, (the stars) wander around the film without anything of note to do

Nothing short of wiping their memories with a real-life neuralizer is going to convince moviegoers that the supernatural buddy-cop comedy R.I.P.D. is anything more than a thinly disguised Men In Black ripoff.

It's hard to think of a lazier, less-ambitious blockbuster in recent memory.

If it sounds like Men in Black with ghosts instead of aliens that's because that's exactly what it is, just with a bit less wit and slickness.
