The reviews are in, and they aren't holding back. Zac Efron's new Nicholas Sparks flick "The Lucky One" is getting universally panned by critics, while the horror film "The Moth Diaries" is getting "Twilight" comparisons, and not in the good, destined-to-become-a-box-office-smash way.

TV land isn't faring much better with Lena Dunham's television debut, "Girls," causing a ruckus among bloggers who don't find Dunham's meta humor worthwhile. Meanwhile, Julia Louis Dreyfus' television comeback, HBO's political comedy "Veep," isn't scoring any new votes from HuffPost TV's Maureen Ryan.

Last but not least, among the new album releases this week, Train and Jason Mraz both dropped new LPs -- and both are racking up some horrible reviews. It looks like Train frontman Patrick Monahan stole Mraz's signature wacky wordplay and took it to an unbearably pop-y level in California 37, while Mraz is just putting critics to sleep with his new record, Love is a Four Letter Word.

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

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