The Happening Worth The Price of The Ticket?

Has anyone seen The Happening? I have read mixed reviews on the film, most unfavorable. M. Night Syamalan hasn't had a critically aclaimed movie (not that the critics are always right) since The Signs and those reviews were mixed too. I personally liked The Signs, The 6th Sense and the Village wasn't bad until the ending. I didn't bother with Lady in the Water and wonder if I should bother with The Happening.

I watched this movie at night midweek. If I had to do it again, I'd probably watch it during a matinee to save myself the money. The movie was just OK, but I had higher expectations for it. I really thought the premise was interesting - I don't want to spoil it by telling you what was causing the outbreak - but the ending was a little bit of a let down. Mark Wahlberg, though not one of my favorite actors, was actually quite funny in some scenes. I still think Shamylan's best movie was his first: The Sixth Sense. That movie was superb. This one, just O.K.
