Hot Rod

Lowest Recommended Age: High School
MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for crude humor, language, some comic drug-related and violent content.
Movie Release Date: 2007

Even when this movie is at its dumbest, and that is very, very dumb indeed, even when it launches, or, I should say, lurches, into its umpeenth attempt to find humor in having its main character get beat up/crushed/knocked over […]

“I can’t believe we’re paying to see something we get to see on TV for free. Everyone in this theater is a giant sucker, especialy YOU.” And thus, Homer Simpson lets us know that he’s onto us, as he has […]

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

posted by jmiller

There are none so straight as those who pretend to be gay. That seems to be the premise of Adam Sandler’s latest slacker comedy. But its mild pleasures are spoiled by its belief that homophobic humor can be somehow sanitized […]

Hairspray

B+
Lowest Recommended Age: 4th - 6th Grades
MPAA Rating: Rated PG for language, some suggestive content and momentary teen smoking.
Movie Release Date: 2007

I am not sure which is the more amusingly surprising — the idea that one of the most painful struggles in American history could become the subject of a light musical comedy, or the idea that it comes from one […]

Lowest Recommended Age: Middle School
MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for some violence and brief language.
Movie Release Date: 2007

Critic-turned-writer/director Rod Lurie produces old-fashioned potboilers, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. His unabashed melodramas can be refreshing in an era when very little of what we see onscreen takes on big issues or provocative positions. But this time, […]

Transformers

posted by jmiller

The surprising transformation here is not from machines into enormous robots but from a modest Saturday morning cartoon based on a line of toys into 2007’s most exhilarating summer movie, able to transform audiences of all ages into 12-year-old fanboys. […]

License to Wed

posted by jmiller
C
Lowest Recommended Age: Middle School
MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for sexual humor and language.

The best thing about “License to Wed” is that John Krasinski and Mandy Moore have enough of that ever-elusive quality — chemistry — that an impending marriage seems possible if not likely. They easily get us on their side. The […]
