Date Movie is as crude, tasteless and cheap as a movie the Farrelly brothers might’ve made during adolescence. And since the year has only just begun, let’s tack on 2005 and proclaim this the worst movie of the last year and a quarter… Oh, what the hell—the last decade.

Between the two of them, Ridley Scott and Orlando Bloom have picked up their swords for Gladiator, Troy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. And that's the problem. If the intriguing but ultimately derivative Kingdom of Heaven had arrived before these recent period epics, it may have stood a better chance of enthralling us.
