From 'American Reunion' To 'Game Of Thrones': The Week's Most Brutal Reviews

High school reunions, you either love them or you hate them. Sure, the idea isn't so bad -- getting to hang out with all of your old high school friends for one night -- but the actual reunion can be, well, just plain awkward. Hello, "American Reunion."

After three feature films and a handful of dreadful straight-to-DVD movies, "American Reunion" is the last chapter of the "American Pie" franchise.

Although the crew is back for their high school reunion, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, things haven't really changed. It's the same crude humor, the same sex and yes, the same Stifler (Seann William Scott). "The entire film is a mistake," wrote critic Amy Biancolli.

Meanwhile, the small screen isn't safe either, as NBC's "Best Friends Forever" and Starz's "Magic City" both fell flat with TV critics.

HuffPost Entertainment has rounded up the week's snarkiest reviews just for your enjoyment in this week's installment of our "Week In Ouch" series.

This week, critics from Entertainment Weekly to The New York Times and HuffPost TV were left shaking their heads and sharpening their critiques. Even PETA couldn't hold back their tongues when it came to Kanye West's new track, "Theraflu."

Let us know which films, albums and TV shows you think deserved the harsh critiques, and which ones you think critics should ease up on in the comments.

Hanging out with you best friend forever should be fun, but for TV Guide's Matt Roush NBC's new sitcom "about as fun as a multiple hernia operation."

Best Friends Forever is a low-rent disaster that should never have seen the light of prime time. There are characters you love to hate, and then there's the hateful Jessica (the unbearably shrill Jessica St. Clair), a blonde Medusa who turns every punch line to stone.
