"Here Comes The Boom" reviews and more in The Week In Ouch

The critics have weighed in and -- once again -- they weren't too pleased with this week's entertainment offerings.

In music, The Script was called out for providing diluted rock to the masses with "#3," while Ellie Goulding's "Halcyon" was categorized as "nothing new." The Wallflowers' "Glad All Over" and Barbra Streisand's "Release Me" were also on the critics' radar, but faced warmer reviews.

Some felt "Seven Psychopaths" fell victim to weak writing, while "Here Comes the Boom" and "Special Forces" were overwhelmed by the predictability of their story lines. "Argo" faced another round of opinons as well, but this time around, it seems that Ben Afleck was just too good of a hero for critics to slam -- an occurrence some fans might deem utterly impossible.

Read the reviews in the gallery below and let us know what you think in the comments section. Were the critics spot on or too harsh?
