All reviews by Grade

(B) Dan in Real Life

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
No one is better than Steve Carell at playing clenched. In "Dan in Real Life," he plays a character so clenched he just about levitates off the ground. Dan is an advice columnist and a single paren...

(B) Danny Deckchair

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
We get one of these every few months whether we need one or not, so "Danny Deckchair" is this season's quirky-characters-with-accents comedy. Unlike its main character, it never quite achives lift...

(B) Daredevil

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This may be another Marvel comic superhero movie rated PG-13, but it is a much darker story than "Spiderman," and parents whose 8 and 9 or even 13-year-olds loved that movie should think carefully ...

(B) Dark Blue

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This is an ambitious movie. It takes a cop who is corrupt in an ends-justify-the-means sense and contrasts him with a cop who is corrupt in a what’s-in-it-for-me sense and arranges for them to c...

(B) Dawn of the Dead

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Have you ever wanted a fresh start? To live in a shopping mall without needing your credit card? How about if these fantasies and more were writ large in a movie scary enough to remind you how go...

(B) The Day the Earth Stood Still

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
In the 1951 version of The Day the Earth Stood Stil...

(B) The Debt

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Stories are linear.  Part of what gives them their power is that we jettison the details that are distracting or unimportant.  But real life is messy.  That may not be as compelling, but is hone...

(B) Deterrence

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Teens may think that it does not really matter who gets elected President. Or, they may think that the important issues in this year's election are the domestic controversies that attract most of ...

(B) Diary of a Mad Black Woman

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Three separate movies collide in this uneven but heartfelt drama of a woman done wrong who has to learn to rely on herself for the first time. The first movie is a soapy, syrupy, over-the-top "wom...

(B) Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
This is the second movie based on the wildly popular series of » Read Review

(B) The Dictator

Genre: Satire
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
Chutzpah has never been a problem for Sasha Baron Cohen, whose previous films, based on characters he created for television, were semi-documentaries of encounters with ordinary people who did thei...

(B) A Dirty Shame

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Somehow I don't see this movie following Hairspray to become a Tony-award-winning Broadway musical for the whole family. Too bad, because those would be some musical numbers.

Once again, J...

(B) District 13: Ultimatum

Genre: Series/Sequel
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle make a sensationally appealing team in this follow-up to their hit film "District B13." Belle is the creator of "parkour," a stunt spectacular that turns an entire ...

(B) Dogville

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
“Dogville” will inspire passionate responses, partly because it is deliberately provocative but more because it ...

(B) Drive Angry

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
The movie is called "Drive Angry." It stars Nicolas Cage. It's in 3D.

What more do you need to know?

(B) The Duchess

Genre:
