Over the years at Criticwatch, we have kept a watchful eye on the critical community. Sure, there are several critics we don't agree with, but its not taste that makes you a whore. Well, sometimes it does. We can disagree seven ways from Sunday, but from the beginning this has always been about who you can trust. Some of the critics on our list are junket whores or scoop sluts, instantly untrustworthy if the label means anything. Others like Peter Travers & reigning 2006 Whore of the Year Pete Hammond seem to like just about everything and get their names in the papers more than the President. And we've named our awards appropriately ("The Peter Travers Whore of the Year Award", "The Kevin Thomas Sloppy Seconds" and "The Michael Medved Bag of Douche Award").
11/5/07 - HO! HO! HO! The hoes are out on Fred Claus this week.
"Sure to be a holiday classic." --Jeffrey Lyons
"Spectacular! Pure holiday magic." --Jeffrey K. Howard
"It will put you in the spirit with humor and heart!" --Sara Edwards
"Fun holiday cheer for the whole family." --Jay Towers, WJBK/FOX-TV
"Fred Claus sparkles with festive holiday excitement. Families will love it." --Janet Stokes
"One of the funniest comedies of the year." --Shawn Edwards
Did New Line perhaps allow the same pre-written quote for Martian Child to be attributed to two different "critics"? Or did both Stephanie Webb from WZZM-TV (Grand Rapids) and Kevin Steincross both come up with "Magical! One of the best family films of the year!"?
