Curt Holman's five most hated films of 2009

Posted By on Wed, Dec 30, 2009 at 6:47 PM

Roofies should be distributed after some movies, to spare you the pain of remembering them. I get a spasm in my gag reflex whenever I recall:

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - which, nevertheless, will be the highest-grossing film of 2009 unless Avatar unseats it;

The Informers - not Matt Damon's The Informant!, the one based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel;

I Love You, Beth Cooper - a "teen comedy" unworthy of the term, given the absense of laughter and the fact that the leading man is in his late 20s;

Paper Heart - Charlyne Yi's quirky query into the nature of love squanders considerable audience goodwill with twee, faux-documentary gimmickry. (Good puppet shows, though); and

Fanboys - a sub-Kevin Smith geek comedy almost redeemed by a funny final line. Almost. (I hasten to add that some entirely different "Curt Holman" earned a cameo in the film based on the strength of his Star Wars collection. Could he be... a clone?)
