'Child's Play'

Yes, Chucky is a mean-looking doll, but come on ... "he's" still a doll, albeit with a killer's transferred soul. Human co-stars including Chris Sarandon, Catherine Hicks, Christine Elise, Perrey Reeves ("Entourage"), Katherine Heigl and Jennifer Tilly deserve plenty of credit for doing their best to look terrified by something that looked like it had a drastic accident in a toy bin. Likely more for the camp value of Chucky's one-liners than anything truly scary, the franchise has four movies thus far, with a remake of the original picture on tap for next year. (Possibly with Brad Dourif furnishing Chucky's voice a fifth time.) -- Jay Bobbin, Zap2It
