A FEW OBSERVATIONS ABOUT 88 MINUTES:

1) WHEN YOUR TITLE SUGGESTS a RUNNING TIME, MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO WITH IT. THIS FILM ACTUALLY RUNS 108 MINUTES...

2) ANY FILM THAT STARS OSCAR® WINNER (AND FORMER RAZZIE® NOMINEE) AL PACINO, and GOES DIRECT-to-DVD in EUROPE a YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS HERE, IS CLEARLY in SOME KINDA TROUBLE...

3) SOMEONE NEEDS to TELL AL to GET RID of the BEARD -- IT MAKES HIM LOOK LIKE a CHARACTER on THE SIMPSONS...

4) THIS SAME IDEA HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE (AND DONE BETTER) AT LEAST 117 TIMES ALREADY...

OKAY, GET OUT YER STOP-WATCHES -- THIS WILL BE a TIMED POST-MORTEM... 

PACINO: "So, is this gonna, like. rain on my career?  Really?  Bad enough I could get another RAZZIE® nomination??"

If this does suck, that's a shame -- Since Pacino used to be one of America's finest film actors. Guess he's doin' stuff for bux now...

The key phrase regarding Pacino is "used to be." Anyone who saw his eyes-popping, neck-muscles-flexing, spittle-flying performance in "Gigli" (for which he was deservedly a Worst Supporting Actor nominee 5 years ago) already knows Ol' Al gave up doing quality work to do work-for-hire years ago...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Pacino is clearly capable of doing better material than he's been doing in recent years -- Which in some waze makes him even more deserving of RAZZIE® attention. The ones who can't do any better at least have an excuse -- The ones like Pacino, Jon Voight and their ilk, who trade in on their good names by making crap-for-hire, are, in my book, the worst-of-the-worst...

I saw this movie (don't ask me how), and I think it's one of the worst movies of 2008, so far. I really didn't like it. It was laughable, trying to make everyone look like a suspect (which is even more laughable). They added one action sequence just because the movie was boring, they needed to get the audience's attention back...

I'm surprise Al PACINO even made this movie -- he must really be desperate!

One critic says it ranks up there with Revolution on Al's misses list........As big a Pacino fan as I am, it doesn't look like I'll be able to defend this one. I will say that Righteous Kill does look a lot better, though. Maybe Al should take another hiatus. After Revolution he returned to the stage, and after going back to film he got Oscar nominations for Dick Tracy, Glengarry Glen Ross, and finally won an Oscar for Scent of a Woman.

They actually made the tv spots and trailers really good -- I don't know how. Now I believe that if I make a bad movie, the trailer can make it look good. lol...

Is this really moviewizguy???? Because the real moviewizguy would have said by now that this movie really deserves a break, and old Al should be getting an Academy Nod instead of a Razzie one.

They did the same thing for Jack Black in "Nacho Libre", They took the only 60 seconds of the film that was any good and put it into the trailer.

I do not intend to see Nacho Libre because it looks stupid. And I will never watch Drillbit Taylor.

After all the horrible reviews, 88 minutes is just a curiosity piece at this point. Pacino is still a fine actor, and I can forgive him for curtailing acclaim for a paycheck every now and then. Are we forgetting the Halle Berry Razzie win and speech? Since 88 minutes is bound to head for DVD in a blink and a wink, give him his Razzie...and move on!

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: You forget that Pacino's competition for Worst Actor of 2008 includes RAZZIE Icon Sylvester Stallone in the execrable RAMBO. The reviews suggest Al could give Sly a real run for the spraypaint, but my money would still be on Stallone to "win" in the end...

I am still looking for a movie worse than 'Manos: The Hands of Fate.' Alas, I remain ever hopeful!

I saw Richard Roeper's review on-line, and according to him we should not only give a Razzie to Pacino, but also to Al's big hair and fake tan. Here's a LINK to see his review...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Roeper also called 88 MINUTES "a symphony of awful {and} quite possibly the worst movie of the year so far..."

I actually had high hopes for this movie because it starred Al Pacino, who's a brillant actor and hasn't been in movies in quite a while.

Instead, it turned out to be a broken, muddled mess that just dragged on and on.
