In the second installment of our weekly roundup of brutal, if over the top, reviews, a desperate "Bachelor" contestant made critics cringe when she tried to teach Bachelor Ben how to kiss, a disgruntled artist claimed she invented polka-dots, and Channing Tatum became the guy who is just "perpetually short of breath."

For our entertainment-loving audience, we've collected reviews from Vulture, The Guardian and even some of our friends at HuffPost and Moviefone to get the snarkiest commentary on the latest movies, TV shows, music, books, and art.

Let us know who you think got a fair critique, and which reviews were simply too harsh in the comments.

THR Thought "Safe House" Was A Snoozy Cat And Mouse Chase

It's hard to say no to an action-packed movie, unless it's just exhausting. According to The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy, "Safe House" went a little too far.

Essentially a two-hour chase with a few brief breaks to catch its breath, Safe House is an elemental cat-and-mouse game elaborated to the point of diminishing returns. Terse and understated, this is a spy vs. spy tale designed to minimize talk and maximize action, not at all a bad thing in movies but over-worked to near-exhaustion here.
