(C+) The Cave

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This movie unfolds as though the scenes were assembled in random order. At least I think that's what it looks like; it is hard to say because it was so dark and murky looking.

It appears t...

(C+) Chasing Papi

Genre:

Chiquita Banana and the Frito Bandito were subtle compared to the caricatures of Latino culture in this movie, but because it was created by Latinos, it is supposed to be all right.

The sto...

(C+) Cheaper by the Dozen 2

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
As synthetically generic as a "Happy Holidays" card from your realtor, this by-the-numbers pratfall-fest is, at least, a teensy bit better than the 2004 original. I'll explain why in a moment. Bu...

(C+) City by the Sea

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"City by the Sea" is an ambitious drama that never reaches any of its goals but has some watchable moments along the way.

It is based on a true story, but one so improbably agonizing that it...

(C+) Clifford's Really Big Movie

(C+) Coyote Ugly

Genre:

The people behind "Flashdance" have delivered another movie with about the same level of believabilty, but with little less flash and a lot less dance. You won't see much more dance on screen than...
