All reviews by Grade

(B-) W.

MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Maybe it is just too soon, maybe we are just too used to the high-gloss satire of "Saturday Night Live" and "The Daily Show," maybe it's the kaleidoscopic structure, but this movie feels like a rou...

(B-) A Walk to Remember

MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
I got more enjoyment out of the squeals of joy from the 9-14-year-olds in the audience than from anything on the screen in this syrupy re-tread of "Love Story" set in a Beaufort, North Carolina hig...

(B-) We Are Marshall

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Mature High Schooler
At least in movies, sports are almost always about redemption, community, and triumph. Sports -- like movies -- provide a controlled world with boundaries within which we can work through issues t...

(B-) We Own the Night

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This is a curious hybrid combining contemporary language and violence with a retro set-up right out of a 1930's James Cagney/Pat O'Brien movie and pulsating undercover law enforcement action of 197...

(B-) When in Rome

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
An exceptionally strong cast makes this fantasy romantic comedy trifle pleasantly watchable despite its chick-lit conventions. Kristen Bell is Beth, the (of course) supremely competent museum "cur...

(B-) The Wild

MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
"The Wild" is more like "The Mild." But it is pleasant enough; its the timing that's rotten.

Like last year's suprisingly successful Madagascar, this is an animated film about zoo animals w...

(B-) The Wild Thornberrys Movie

MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
“The Wild Thornberrys” are a family that travels to exotic locales all over the world to film nature documentaries for television. The on-camera talent is the relentlessly cheerful father, Nig...

(B-) Winter's Tale

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School

(B-) The Women

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
It isn't so much that they have updated or re-invented the brilliantly acidic Claire Boothe Luce play that was adapted for a classic 1939 movie; they completely misunderstood it. The surface detai...

(B-) Won't Back Down

Genre: School
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
What should have been a rousing, feel-good, "inspired by a true story" film about a mother and a teacher who take on the teacher's union and the school board to turn around a failing elementary sch...

(B-) World Trade Center

MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
September 11, 2001 was one of those days that cleave history in two, forever separating the Before and the After as irrecovably as it separated those who were lost from those who survived. As we w...
