(B-) Fame

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: High School
Less a movie than a mosaic, this remake of the 1980 classic with the Oscar-winning title anthem about the high school for the performing arts has been re-imagined for the hyper-linked and just plai...

(B) The Family Stone

(C) Fast & Furious

Genre: Series/Sequel
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School

(D) Fighting

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Terrence Howard's performance in "Fighting" is so bizarrely strange and awful that it occurred to me he might be hoping we didn't realize it was him. Howard plays Harvey, a street hustler who disc...

(C+) Flyboys

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Has this script been in a drawer somewhere since 1942?

(C-) Four Christmases

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School

(C+) Freedomland

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School
This movie’s inability to live up to its potential is nearly as epic as its misleading title. In other hands, "Freedomland" might have played a jazz-like riff of personal loss and moving vignett...
