Week In Ouch

It's Saturday, and we spent all week sifting through reviews and collecting the snarkiest critiques of blunders and missteps in the latest movies and TV shows for the fifth installment of our "Week In Ouch" series.

This week, we've rounded up reviews from Vulture, The New York Post, our friends at HuffPost and more to get their (at times) over the top take on new movies and TV shows like "The Lorax", "Project X" and "GCB."

Let us know which films and shows you think deserved the bash, and which ones you think critics should ease up on.

HuffPost Thought "GCB" Was Like A Really Bad Cartoon

Based on the book "Good Christian B****es," ABC's GCB (the network swapped "B****es for Belles, in case your interested), didn't impress HuffPost's Maureen Ryan.

Here's what she had to say:

Things like the cleavage scene make it all the more jarring when "GCB" tries to create warm, human moments, which the scattered show doesn't do anything to earn. The show can't really decide on a tone -- is it a cartoonish, silly soap with undertones of dislike for women, Christians and Texans, or a mildly absurd, comedic drama about a formerly rich person seeking forgiveness?
