Poor Bradley Cooper. Hollywood’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2011 (according to People magazine) had to executive produce his own films (this, and last year’s portentous thriller Limitless) to land serious roles. Certainly no-brainer stints in films like The A-Team and Hit & Run aren’t earning the guy any serious acting cred; hence this, a semicredible morality tale about a writer wrecked with guilt over undeserved success.

Take its title as a sign of an all-around failure—"360," despite its dazzling line-up of Oscar-class credits, somehow manages to be one of the dullest movies of the year. A modern interpretation of Arthur Schnitzler’s century-old play, "La Ronde," the film zooms in on the weighty topic of moral decision-making and how it shapes our social connections, yet comes off as superficial and empty.
