Infinitely more entertaining than the actual film are the reviews of Angels and Demons.

To wit.

"At least the movie's good for about 30 minutes of unintentional laughter, which doesn't say much for the other 90+ minutes." - Jeffrey M. Anderson

"THE Da Vinci Code" movie was a riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a mullet. "Angels & Demons" is "Roman Holiday" on crank." So begins the New York Times review.

"For Angels & Demons, Hanks's character, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, has returned, but without the mullet, which in the interim evidently detached itself from his scalp, crawled off to some dark corner, and grew up to be Danny McBride. The movie never quite recovers from its loss." - Christopher Orr, New Republic.

"Every revelation in "Angels & Demons" has a "Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick" vibe. Whenever something bad is about to happen, Hans Zimmer's score flares up like a bad case of stigmata."- Stephanie Zakarek, Salon

Is there an Oscar category for film that generates the most inspired bad reviews?
