Featuring caricatures instead of characters, "You Again" is a tired and formulaic comedy with few funny moments.

The veteran actresses' easy rapport and sheer exuberance are the only real fresh spots in a story you'll recognize from a mile away.

In this ditzy whirl nothing is pushed too far -- the bad aren't really bad, they're all sorry. And the assumption that high school is where it all happens is ringingly endorsed.

You Again has its heart in the right place, but it's artless, unaccomplished, and contrived.

The film strikes a slapstick tone that never quite catches on, and it's embarrassing for just about everyone involved.

It's so inconsistent and broadly drawn that wrongheaded is the operative term.

Pretty much the end of Disney's attempt to make Kristen Bell "America's Sweetheart."

There are very few laughs, too much stupid slapstick, and I hated the way it turns schmaltzy-sweet by the end.

You Again may have some very experienced faces in the cast, but the end product still turns out to be disappointingly cliched and trite.

The movie is so laboriously contrived in every atom of its being that the only interest is in seeing if the characters can avoid the destinies decreed for them by ancient formulas.

It is under-written, running out of steam -- and ideas -- long before it is over.

It's left to old pros Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver to add class to the proceedings, which they would if they weren't wasted on tedious slapstick.

Those bemoaning the lack of quality female roles in modern-day Hollywood will find a key cause celebre in You Again, which manages to squander three generations of formidable actresses.

An oddly unpleasant movie, one that aims itself at a female audience, then proceeds to humiliate its female characters by making them petty, ugly and silly.

Picture the eager moviegoer, lover of all things Harry/Sally, bounding to her seat. Picture her disappointment when, realizing both 'rom' and 'com' are a no-show, she sums up her disgust with a sneering, 'You. Again.'

So totally, inanely, numbingly awful is the DOA comedy You Again that you can actually see A-list performers like Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis and Kristin Chenoweth flailing through every scene...

An extremely versatile and talented cast struggles mightily to make something funny that simply isn't.

How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways. This is an epic failure on every level.

A laugh-free script that's underscored by a nasty mean streak...
