Now that you mention it, SLP2008, if someone described a movie as a "brick", I would understand what they meant.

A "brick" is sometimes used here (US) to mean a "failure", a "dud", something that was executed that was unsuccessful.

I've never heard "brick" used in this way. Not in the UK, anyway. It may be an American expression, but I don't think so.
