All reviews by Grade

(C) Lady in the Water

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
There is no conventional rating scale that could do justice to this film. It is a terrible movie, but it is terrible in an interesting and often highly watchable way. There have been better films...

(C) Land of the Lost

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
"Land of the Lost" features two funny actors and a criminally underused actress tramping around an alternate reality in search of comedy but not finding much for us to laugh at. Too raunchy for kid...

(C) The Last Song

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
Miley Cyrus shows us how her reach exceeds her grasp in "The Last Song," an attempt to move past Hannah Montana. She has become Disney's most valuable property th...

(C) The Last Stand

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(C) Laws of Attraction

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"The Laws of Attraction" demonstrates no understanding of either attraction or laws. I don't just mean the completely innacurate portrayal of law practice and court proceedings in the film. I mea...

(C) Leap Year

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
A movie's premise can be implausible and still work. The audience does not have to buy into whatever it is that the hero and heroine are after long as we believe that the movie's characters believ...

(C) A Liar's Autobiography

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
Graham Chapman was the Monty Python troupe member most often referred to by the others as "the dead one."  This affectionate tribute, narrated by Chapman himself in excerpts from the audio version...

(C) License to Wed

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
The best thing about "License to Wed" is that John Krasinski and Mandy Moore have enough of that ever-elusive quality — chemistry — that an impending marriage seems possible if not likely. The...

(C) Lions for Lambs

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School
It is more op-ed than movie. "Lions for Lambs" is a well-meaning attempt to encapsulate and move forward one segment of our current political debates. But it is mostly speeches, not stories.

(C) The Lone Ranger

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

(C) A Lot Like Love

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Somebody decided to remake When Harry Met Sally but they left out the charm, the wit, the detail, the sincerity, the endearing characters, the romance, the scene in the deli, and the great soundtra...

(C) A Love Song for Bobby Long

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This is one of those insufferable movies where three bundles of quirk and backstory intended to approximate characters are thrown together because of some writer's fantasy. The writer may hope tha...

(C) The Lovely Bones

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Peter Jackson, whose film versions of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy could be a textbook example of how to adapt a literary work for screen, could find his latest film, "The Lovely Bones" as the e...

(C) Lucky You

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
Maybe if it had been made in the 1940's or 50's in black and white, maybe if it starred Frank Sinatra and Lee Remick, maybe if we had never seen better films like "The Hustler," maybe this script m...
