MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
It's official. The cutest thing on the planet is penguins singing "Boogie Wonderland." Especially if one of them is tap-dancing. This movie is a straight shot of sunshine. I defy anyone to watc...

Before I tell you about this film and about how much I liked it, I want to say thank you to J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers for the care and devotion they gave to this extraordinary story.  On th...

(A-) Hellboy

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
In the “it was a dark and stormy night” genre of graphic novels (that's comic books with literary aspirations), we are guaranteed to find a Sam Spade-inspired anti-hero with a wicked sense of h...

(A-) Hero

(A-) Home on the Range

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
I love it when Disney doesn't take itself too seriously.

(A-) How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Kate Hudson is irresistably adorable in this frothy update of the 1950's-style battle of the gorgeous (and gorgeously-attired) sexes romantic comedy. It's easy to imagine Doris Day and Rock Hudson...
