(B-) Jack Reacher

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(F-) Jackass: Number Two

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Anyone unfamiliar with the Jackass collection (a prior feature-length “movie” -– really a collection of skits –- and a series on MTV) will definitely not want to go into the boys’ second ...

(F) Jackass:The Movie

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This is not a movie in the conventional sense of the word. There is no story and there are no characters. It is not a documentary because it features stunts created just for the movie. What it i...

(A-) The Jacket

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
A Gulf War veteran whose injuries have left him with an uncertain memory walks along a highway then stops to help a mother and daughter whose car has stalled. He gets the car started, but the moth...

(B+) The Jane Austen Book Club

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
I'm pretty sure that Jane Austen never thought of including a lesbian jumping out of an airplane in any of her books, and yet somehow that scene fits in just fine in this story of six people who ge...

(A-) Jarhead

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
In Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Estragon and Vladimir wait for someone (God?) who never arrives, evoking the absurdity and ...

(B) Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Hard-core Kevin Smith fans (I don't think there are any other kind) will find this just the movie they were waiting for. It's a love letter to his characters and to his fans, a sort of movie equiva...

(B) Jeff, Who Lives At Home

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Of course Jeff (Jason Segal) lives at home.  Just about everyone lives at home; that's what "home" means.  The thing about 30-year-old Jeff, though, is that he still lives at the home he never-qu...

(B-) Jennifer's Body

Genre: Horror
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"Jennifer's Body" is not scary enough for horror and not knowing enough for commentary on horror. "Hell is a teenage girl," says Needy (Amanda Seyfried of "Mama Mia" and "Big Love"). And she shou...

(C) Jersey Girl

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Kevin Smith is the writer/director of some of the most cheerfully profane and wildly politically incorrect movies of all time, including Clerks, Dogma, and Chasing Amy. His characters -- and his s...

(B) John Wick

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(B-) Jonah Hex

Genre: Western
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Josh Brolin plays Jonah Hex, a man transformed by loss in a fantasy western set just after the Civil War, based on the series of comics and graphic novels. The war is over in the United States, b...

(B+) The Joneses

Genre: Satire
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Why do we want what we want? I don't mean world peace or for our school's team to win the NCAA championship, but why do we want a particular brand of shoe or phone or perfume? Is it because we th...

(D) Josie and the Pussycats

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
There is a moment in last year’s "The Tao of Steve" in which Donal Logue charms Greer Goodman – and the audience, too – with his appreciation for the 1970’s cartoon series "Josie and the Pu...

(B+) Juno

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Juno%20poster.jpg It's time for the q-word again. Every year, it seems, there is some...

(D) Just Friends

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The worst thing about this movie is not how dumb it is, or how much talent it wastes. The worst thing is not how crude it is or how ugly the humor (more accurately, intended humor) is, and how cyn...

(D) Just Go With It

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The good news: no one in this movie has sex with an old lady or gets stabbed in the foot. So Adam Sandler is making some progress. And Jennifer Aniston continues to be a lovely screen presence, w...

(B+) Just Like Heaven

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Many romantic comedies have a Sleeping Beauty theme, but few as literally as this by-the-book but enjoyable trifle.

Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon) is a dedicated doctor who has no life outside...

(C-) Just Married

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
There’s a reason that they call comedies like this one “sophomoric.” It is because they are designed to appeal to high school sophomores who are just beginning to go out on dates. For the g...
