MPAA Rating:Rated PG for rude humor, mild language and action.
Movie Release Date:2007

There may be no need to fear now that Underdog is here, but there is no reason to feel very happy, either. This live-action adaptation of the 1960′s animated television show substitutes special effects for satire. The animated series was […]

Hot Rod

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 […]

The Simpsons Movie

B+
Lowest Recommended Age:Middle School
MPAA Rating:Rated PG-13 for irreverent humor throughout.
Movie Release Date:2007

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community.
