    'Cabin In The Woods,' 'Three Stooges,' 'The Client List' And More: The Week In Ouch

    The reviews for Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's new horror flick "The Cabin in the Woods" have been mostly positive. However there was one critic who wasn't so impressed with Whedon's "nightmare spoof," claiming that it's not as scary as the movies it seems to copy.

    "A testament to the wonders of writing under the guidance of crystal meth, this nightmare spoof of everything from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' to the 'Scream' franchise totally defies logic, and pretty much eludes description," wrote Rex Reed of The New York Observer.

    Meanwhile, the return of Fox's "Glee" made teenage girls squeal with delight -- and HitFix's Ryan McGee cry out in frustration. As for ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23"? Well, even James Van Der Beek (playing The Beek himself!) couldn't save this new comedy from The Washington Post's wrath.

    HuffPost Entertainment has rounded up the week's snarkiest reviews just for your enjoyment in this week's installment of our "Week In Ouch" series.

    This week, critics from Empire to The New York Times and HitFix all had something nasty to say about the latest movies, music and TV shows.

    Let us know what you think deserved the harsh critiques, and which ones you think critics should ease up on in the comments.

    Rihanna In Talks To Play Whitney Houston In Rumored Biopic

    Just days after Whitney Houston's funeral, the rumor mill is buzzing about a biopic chronicling the late singer's life.

    The Daily Mail reports that Clive Davis will helm the project, while Jennifer Hudson, Vivica Fox and Jordin Sparks are on the short list to play Houston, with Rihanna thought to be the favorite.

    But another star may have her eye on the role: Brandy Norwood, Houston's co-star in the 1997 adaptation of "Cinderella."

    "My dream role would be to play Whitney Houston," Brandy told TrueExclusives only weeks before Houston's passing. "Of course she would have to sing all the songs. But I would love to play Ms. Whitney. I have her personality down pat, her 'isms' down pat. Like no offense ladies -- it's a lot of talented ladies there -- but nobody can play Whitney like me. Yes!"

    Do you think Rihanna is right for the role of Houston?
