'Dancing With The Stars' All-Stars, 'The Watch,' 'Step Up Revolution' & More: The Week In Ouch

Posted: Updated:

With the 2012 London Olympics in full-swing, chances are you might be glued to your TV screen all weekend watching Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte go head-to-head in the 400-meter individual medley -- and that may be a good thing.

This week, movie critics seemed less-than-impressed with Ben Stiller's poorly timed "The Watch." The alien comedy only has a 13 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. "The laughs rarely come as the actors shout their lines as if the script were written in ALL CAPS," wrote Rolling Stone's Peter Travers. If aliens aren't your thing, you could always check out Scott Speer's "Step Up Revolution," the fourth (yes, fourth) film in the "Step Up" franchise. However, USA Today's Scott Bowles didn't think the film had all the right moves. "It has two left feet," he wrote.

Over in TV land, some of your favorite shows aren't faring much better. AMC's "The Killing" met a bitter end after two seasons, getting canceled on Friday. Meanwhile, ABC's decision to cast Bristol Palin in their "Dancing With the Stars" all-stars season didn't do over well with TV critics. However, Palin had a few words of her own for her critics. “God provides opportunities like this for me,” she said in a statement. “It’s a positive, active show. It’s going to be awesome. Do I like to provide for my son? Yes, I do."

What do you make of these harsh critiques? Let us know what you think of this week's critical roundup below.
