All reviews by Grade

(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...

(B-) George A. Romero's Land of the Dead

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
A groaning buffet table of cannibalistic carnage and cheesy dialogue, “Land of the Dead” unevenly masks its stale plot elements with campy winks and a dash of humor. The extreme carnivore’s ...

(B-) Going the Distance

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
Even in the era of Skype and Foursquare, it is hard to stay connected when one half of a couple is in New York and the other half is in California. Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Garrett (real-life on-a...

(B-) The Good German

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Director Steven Soderbergh has created a loving tribute to the films of the 1940's that is more accomplished than effective. It is such a meticulous re-creation of the techniques and technology of...

(B-) A Good Year

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
Plonk is a Britishism for cheap, low-quality wine -- not undrinkable, by any means, just nothing special. As much could be said for this film, lightly based on the helium-weight plonk of a best-se...

(B-) The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Genre: Gross-out
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades

(B-) Gridiron Gang

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
The biggest shock in this film comes at the very end. It is not a spoiler to say that there's the usual "here's what happened to the characters" round-up. The shocker is the reminder that the mur...
