DON­ALD CLARKE’S TOP 10 TUR­KEYS OF 2009

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Review 2009 -

1. The Boat that Rocked

The boat that sucked, more like. Misog­y­nis­tic, mis­cast, over­long, repet­i­tive: there was no rea­son for Richard Cur­tis’s study of pi­rate ra­dio to be so ghastly.

2. The Ugly Truth

Katherine Heigl and Ger­ard But­ler set back gen­der pol­i­tics a decade or so. We could have cre­ated this list

from US ro­man­tic come­dies alone.

3. Bride Wars

And an­other one.

4. Cou­ples Re­treat

And an­other.

5. Sur­veil­lance

Jen­nifer Lynch shames her fa­ther – David – with a de­ranged pseudo-ex­is­ten­tial thriller. Oh well. At least it’s not an­other crummy rom-com.
