'Bel Ami' Reviews, 'Prometheus,' 'Madagascar 3' And More: The Week In Ouch

Posted: Updated:

Hoards of "Twilight" fans will be lining up outside select theaters this weekend to watch Robert Pattinson sleep with Hollywood's finest leading ladies in "Bel Ami."

Unfortunately for RPatz, however, "Bel Ami" didn't win over critics. With only a 30 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie adaptation of the Guy de Maupassant's 1885 French novel isn't quite the launching pad Pattinson needs to be taken seriously post-"Twilight."

"With that cast, we rightfully expect fireworks," wrote Rolling Stone. "What we get is the film equivalent of a wet blanket."

Over in TV Land, Fox's new celebrity dating show "The Choice" -- a rip-off of NBC's "The Voice" -- may have debuted to solid numbers, but The New York Times wasn't so impressed.

But that wasn't all -- take a spin through the gallery below for more.

Can these harsh critiques all be right? Or do these writers simply need to take a chill pill and relax? Let us know which critical torpedoes landed on deserving targets and which fell wide of the mark in the comments.
