All reviews by Grade

(C+) Bad Company

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This generic summer popcorn movie would be instantly forgettable if not for the sour aftertaste left by its climax, with a nuclear bomb set to explode in New York City’s Grand Central Station. W...

(C+) Balto

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Preschool
This is the true story of the brave dog who saved the lives of Alaskan children with diphtheria when he brought medicine to them through the snow. Kevin Bacon provides the voice for the heroic cani...

(C+) The Banger Sisters

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The considerable pleasures of watching Oscar-winners Susan Sarandon, Goldie Hawn, and Geoffrey Rush displaying all of their combined charm and talent are repeatedly tripped up by a lame script that...

(C+) Bicentennial Man

Genre: Science-Fiction
MPAA Rating:     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
Think of it as Pinocchio played by C3PO from "Star Wars." Robin Williams plays "Andrew Martin," a robot who wants to be human, in this adaptation of a story and book by Isaac Asimov.

In "th...

(C+) Big Daddy

Genre: Gross-out
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Big Daddy" has all the unavoidable elements of an Adam Sandler film: slapstick humor, gross jokes, bodily functions galore, spectacular pratfalls and more than a sprinkling of sexual innuendo. Yet,...

(C+) Birthday Girl

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
A very uneven thriller-romance is brightened by dark comedy and another magnetic performance by Nicole Kidman as the 21st century equivalent to a mail order bride. Shy bank teller John (Ben Chaplin...

(C+) Black Knight

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Martin Lawrence is a very funny guy who is usually a lot better than the movies around him, which tend to play as though half the script reads, "Martin enters and does funny things." This time, th...

(C+) Blade: Trinity

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Let’s not pretend that “Trinity”, the third chapter in the ongoing tale of a human-vampire hybrid out to kill all vampires, is a good movie and instead say it is a solid “Blade” movie - m...

(C+) The Blair Witch Project

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
More conceptual art and marketing phenomenon than movie, "The Blair Witch Project" is poised to become the most profitable movie of all time. Directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick have learne...

(C+) Blue Crush

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
If you want to ride this movie the way its heroine rides the waves, the best thing to do is bring a walkman and a really good pair of headphones and watch it while listening to your favorite assort...

(C+) Blue Streak

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Martin Lawrence stars in a made-to-order story of a jewel thief who returns to the scene of the crime to retrieve his loot, only to find that the construction site where he stashed the stolen diamo...

(C+) Bounce

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
Like "Return to Me," this is a love story that is better than its gimmick. In a variation on the "cute meet" of romantic comedies, this movie has a "buried secret that will be revealed at the wors...

(C+) Bowfinger

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Bobby Bowfinger (Steve Martin) wants desperately to make a movie, and as he approaches his 50th birthday he thinks he is running out of time. He tries to interest a studio executive in a script cal...

(C+) Breakin' All the Rules

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Bright stars can't save this over-plotted and under-directed romantic comedy. Jamie Foxx plays Quincy, a magazine editor who is about to propose to his girlfriend when she dumps him. So he writes...

(C+) Bring It On

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
I may sound like the Movie Grandmom here, but it is a darned shame that this smart and sassy movie has to include unnecessarily raunchy humor. Otherwise, this would be a terrific movie for kids, b...

(C+) Brother Bear

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Preschool
The most imaginative part of this latest Disney animated feature, set in the Pacific Northwest at the end of the Ice Age, is the sunlight on the glaciers. It is magnificently rendered. Other than...
