'The Bourne Legacy' Reviews, Thoughts On 'The Campaign,' Matthew Perry's 'Go On' & More: The Week In Ouch

"The Bourne Legacy" leads an army of new movies into theaters this weekend. Thankfully, for ticket buyers, it seems most of this week's offerings are solid bits of entertainment: Only "Bourne Legacy" -- the fourth film in the "Bourne" franchise, but one that doesn't include title star Matt Damon -- and something call "Nitro Circus: The Movie" were certified rotten by Rotten Tomatoes, the popular movie review aggregation site.

Not that films like "The Campaign," "Hope Springs" and indie releases "Red Hook Summer" and "2 Days In Paris" are perfect. Critics found issues with each, with complaints ranging from the films being too stupid ("The Campaign") to too messy (Spike Lee's "Red Hook Summer"). Still, if you're headed to theaters this weekend -- and not watching the Closing Ceremonies at the 2012 London Olympics -- you've certainly got some options.

Television watchers, on the other hand, have a bit less to consider. Earlier this week, NBC debuted the Matthew Perry sitcom "Go On" to high ratings and mixed critical results. The network is likely hoping for a similar response to the sitcom "Animal Practice," which premieres after the Closing Ceremony in London. The series stars Justin Kirk ("Weeds") and Crystal the Monkey ("The Hangover Part II"), and has left most critics decidedly unmoved.

Did these critics go too far? Not far enough? Check out some of the week's toughest reviews in HuffPost Entertainment's Week In Ouch below. Sound off in the comments with your own thoughts on the week's entertainment.
