Reviews by Appropriate Audience

(C) G-Force

Genre: Talking animals
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Top voice talent and good 3D computer graphics cannot make up for the fact that this film is utterly synthetic as well as crass, loud, and vulgar. Even at a brief running time of under 90 minutes,...

(B-) The Game Plan

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
There is undeniable little girl appeal in this story of a big, selfish meanie of a quarterback who is tamed by the 8-year-old daughter he never knew he had. Some audiences will find it as sugary a...

(C) Garfield

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Garfield is a big, orange, lazy glutton of a cat created by cartoonist Jim Davis in 1978. His musings on life's essential concerns -- meaning mostly how he can get more of everything, especially f...

(C-) Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
This is lowest common denominator movie-making. Why not, it's based on a lowest-common denominator comic strip.

Garfield's lighter-than-air comic strip is utterly generic because its motiv...

(B+) Glory Road

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
A man who coaches high school girls' basketball gets a job at a small Texas school and not only takes them to the nationals, where they defeat the long-time champions in a stunning upset, he change...

(D) Godzilla

Genre: Science-Fiction
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
The classic Japanese monster film has been updated by the team that produced and directed "Stargate" and "Independence Day," and what we get is basically "Jurassic Park" with one very, very big din...

(B) Good Boy!

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
"Good Boy" is a not-so-good movie, but it is not so bad, either.

It's a watered-down canine version of "ET." It is not particularly imaginative and it goes on too long, dragging through the...

(A) A Goofy Movie

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
One of the great existential questions of childhood, memorably explored in “Stand By Me,” is “If Mickey is a mouse, and Pluto is a dog, what is Goofy?” Goofy may be in a class (and genus) o...

(B+) The Great Race

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Dedicated to "Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy," this movie is both a spoof and a loving tribute to the silent classics, with good guys, bad guys, romance, adventure, slapstick, music, wonderful antique ca...

(D) Gulliver's Travels

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
A cringe-inducing catastrophe with all of the appeal of fingernails on blackboard, this movie's first early warning sign should have been the omission of Jonathan Swift from the opening credits. <...

(B) Gulliver's Travels: the Animated Feature

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
In the early days of animation, Disney's biggest rival was the studio run by the Fleischer brothers, whose Betty Boop, Popeye, and Out of the Inkwell cartoons were very popular. Their first featur...

(B+) Guys and Dolls

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Plot: The story takes place among the small-time underworld characters of New York. Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) runs a "floating crap game" (held in a different place each time) that provides en...
